KL Summer Adventure: Accommodations at Hotel Alpha Genesis

For our 3-days/2-nights adventure in Malaysia, we stayed at Hotel Alpha Genesis, a business boutique hotel located at No. 45, Tengkat Tong Shin, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. The hotel is just a few minutes walk (15-20 minutes, they say) to the two famous attractions in Kuala Lumpur; the tallest twin towers and the sixth tallest telecommunications tower of the world - the Petronas Twin Towers and the KL Tower, respectively. Also, the hotel is just 10-minutes walk to the KL Monorail - Bukit Bintang Station. It is also just 2-blocks away from the famous Jalan Alor where we had our first dining experience in KL. Also near the hotel is a 24-hour convenience store (just in front of the hotel) and several bars and restaurants.

Hotel Alpha Genesis - Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Our room is located on the seventh-floor, with the view of the KL Tower from the window. It is a twin-bed spacious room with private bath/CR (with hot/cold shower, hair dryer and toiletries), central air-conditioning system, colored-TV with international channels, electronic in-room safe, and mini-refrigerator. The room also has coffee and tea-making facilities, of course with complimentary coffee and tea. Most of all, the hotel has free wifi *big smile here*. Though the staff told me that it is only available in the hotel's reception area, I was still able to connect to it from our room. ;)

Our accommodation also includes buffet breakfast from the hotel's restaurant, Cafe & Bistro, located at the ground floor. From the Bistro, we tasted Malaysia's roti canai, an Indian-influenced bread served with a super spicy vegetable curry. The Bistro's roti canai does not taste and look like bread though, it tasted more like a pancake (but it doesn't look like a pancake too, haha...I don't know how to describe it, just check the photo below), with a super hot syrup, sauce rather...hehe!

On our first breakfast at the hotel, we have the above-photographed foods - roti canai with the super spicy curry veggie, fried rice and sausage with potato. On the next day, again we were served roti canai and a  noodle dish (I don't know what it's called). That's it, that's what they call buffet breakfast, Malaysian-style! :> ;)

Our first- and second-day breakfast! :D

I was a bit disappointed with the hotel's free buffet breakfast, particularly the very limited food choices, but with the room's amenities/hotel's location and accommodating staff, I would still recommend Hotel Alpha Genesis for budget travelers who want comfortable accommodation; just look for promo rates so you'll get it at a cheaper price. :)

    1. I saw roti canai in Batu Cave, it looks like bread talaga, ewan ko ba yun sa hotel at bakit ganon gawa nila. About the taste? Hmm, para lang bread na sinabayan mo ng ulam, parang puto at dinuguan sa 'tin. Haha, di ko ma-describe, try mo na lang pag nagpunta ka din ng KL. ;)

    1. Kung meron ka makuha promo fare, try mo KL, except for plane fare and accommodation na naka-package nga, PhP4000 more or less gastos ko sa pagikot-ikot sa KL, foods, fares, entrance fees and souvenirs na yun. I-post ko IT & expenses later para may idea ka.
