Alpha Genesis Hotel
Ranked #125 of 349 Hotels in Kuala Lumpur
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My stay wasn't for Business. Well, there was no water pressure at my condo where I stayed so decided to look for a nice hotel around the area to stay for a night. I have to think, not twice but at least four times, if I should walked in to Alpha Genesis because it does look old and tired, just how I was last night. The hotel nearby was full and have no choice but to check in Alpha Genesis in the end. The only room available was the Executive Suite, walk-in rate RM279 (within my budget - do not wish to splurge as I just need a comfortable place to shower for the evening and a comfy bed)

The two front office guys who attended to me were doing a reasonably good job, yet accommodating. The Executive Suite was clean and surprisingly spacious. The bed was a bit hard and the duvet was not doing a good job in keeping me warm (time to get a new one). The living area is as big as the room minus the bed, so for those travelling with friends/families can stay over with their sleeping bags :D

Needed a technician last night to fix the lighting, he did a good job! Well done, Chan! The whole place need some better maintenance work and also maybe some refurbished works to update it a bit.

Woke up this morning feeling slightly refreshed. I had a good shower and a good rest, despite slight noise since the room is near the main service lifts. WiFi was super fast, reckon even faster than most of the 5-star hotels I have stayed.

Will I stay there again? Hmmm.... Surprisingly, yes.

Room Tip: Executive Suite on the 8th floor was ok.

The hotel is wonderfully located. Just beside jalan alor and a jump away from the shopping malls.
The rooms are small but well equipped. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was ok. Complementary breakfast was below average. Egg was served in breakfast but charges 3.5 RM. Reception was friendly. We checked out late 6 pm with 100RM additional pat per room.
Overall, its an ok hotel with good positioning.

Stayed 2 nights, first impression was not too good at all. But I realized that the hotel is in perfect location. Side by side with alor street, in a middle of traveler area and close to everywhere. Walking distance to Bukit Bintang, KLCC and also KL Tower. At night we can also go to China Town.
Its rooms is old enough, but still in good condition, perfect services and complete amenities. All rooms has its own bathtub. Worth enough and good value hotel. I'm sure that I'll be there next trip.
Staffs also gave their best attitude and smile. I didn't find anything as negative point during my stay in the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for KL Tower View

Stayed in the standard room for a couple of nights. Security with room card lift access is a good thing. The fitting and furniture were a little worn out but nothing broke. The tv was an 18 inches tube with a remote working half of the time. Now the mattress and pillows were alright - got a good night sleep. Linens and sheets were clean and bathroom was good. But we did got a couple of critters a visiting the room after we finished eating the fried chickens we brought form nearby restaurant. Hmmm. The location is about the best of this hotel. It is so convenient with close by monorail station and being in the center of KL shopping district.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Me and my sister were just happy that it was a decent hotel and yet affordable. The location is near to malls and Monorail station Bukit Bintang few minutes walk only. The area is good even it is near the food street and nightlife, it is still quite and not crowded. A few reflexology, spa, massage near the area, restaurants and 24 hours convenient store. We booked the twin sharing de luxe room, not that big but it's ok. It has a bathtub, hot and cold shower, hair dryer, boiling tea pot, ref and mini bar. Fallback tv is old :) not flat screen and a few channels only. Wi-fi is good and fast. Be reminded that every Monday they change their password so you have to ask for the new password. The receptionist were accommodating and a few of our needs were taken care of immediately. Our stay was pleasant and security is good since elevator is card controlled.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Kuala Lumpur tower and non smoking floor area.

Stayed here for 2 nights as KL our final stop after travelling Asia for past 3 months, and had already booked big hotel for the remaining last 4 days. Hotel looks ok from the outside, brilliant location (right near lots of malls, restaurants, KL tower and Petronas towers), check in was smooth even though it was 11.30am so were early. Room was clean and lovely (better than expected). Big bed, nice bathroom, views of KL tower, big tv with English channels, good quiet air con and kettle/coffee facilities! The concierge always smiling and opening doors for you, and great at hailing down taxis willing to use the meter (they ridiculously overcharge if no meter is running or they refuse to use it - we learnt our lesson many times - some just try their best to exploit tourists, so ALWAYS use meter taxis, guarantee you it's much much cheaper).
Overall nice stay and much better than expected after reading some reviews. From past reviews regarding rooms smelling of smoke, we were asked which we would prefer, which was non smoking, and you can see on the lift that they have 2 floors purely for non smoking. Neither the room, floor or lift smelt of smoke so just request or this if non smokers.
Only downside - be even more perfect if they had some kind of pool to cool off in!

Room Tip: Request non smoking if don't want a smoke smelling room.
