Allson-Genisis Hotel in KL

Jump to last reply

Has anyone stayed in this hotel and can you please tell me what they thought of it and what the position is like?
I know it's in the Golden Triangle, but I wonder if its close enough to walk to China Town?

    I've stayed there... it is a decent medium-level hotel. Bright and seemingly fairly new. Very well situated with many shopping malls just a few blocks away, and the main downtown core a few blocks away as well. Last time I visited in January, they had a coffee shop on the ground floor that had a nice breakfast for a very good rate. Staff were friendly and helpful. On the street in behind is "food street", where food stalls are set up on the street and you can buy everything from satay to noodles. Only unsavory element is the presence of "pimps" soliciting for business. Of course, prostitution is not acceptable in an Islamic country, so instead of parading girls on the street as in Western countries, the pushy pimps have to solicit business on their own... But just ignore them and they won't cause any trouble. The hotel is about a 20-25 minute walk from Chinatown. Not far, but not close. If you take a cab, make sure you ask for the meter to be turned on... many cabbies try to make extra bucks by quoting a set rate, but that's actually not "allowed" in KL.
