Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

The Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral recently opened, and is conveniently located adjacent to the Sentral train station. In fact, there is a connecting walkway between the train station and adjoining mall to the hotel.

If taking the walkway, you will enter the hotel on the second floor and have to go down one floor to the front desk.

The hotel’s restaurant The Nook is located on the second floor, which has indoor and “outdoor” seating.

The lobby is very spacious and has an open feel to it thanks to very high ceilings.  To the right there are several sections of seating.

re:fuel

When entering from the front, the front desk is straight in front of you. Behind that is the re:fuel snack/drink/take away food center.

Business Center

There is also a small business center with a couple of computers to use.

Pool Table

There is also a pool table.

Check-in wasn’t the smoothest, as there were four front desk associates just standing around when I got there. It took a minute before one of them acknowledged me and began to help me.

He either seemed kind of lost, or really uninterested, as he took forever to give me the room keys, and asked for me credit card several times as it appeared he got lost in his thought process a couple of times.

Room 1804

After finally getting the room keys, I headed up to room 1804.

The bathroom is located to the left of the door, and is somewhat small.

Sink

There is a single sink with an adequate amount of counter space.

Complimentary toothbrushes, razor, and cotton balls/nail file are provided.

Toilet

The toilet is lodged between a wall and the shower.

Shower

The shower was on the small side, but water pressure was pretty good and the temperature remained constant.

Free Water

Four bottles of water are complimentary, which is a huge bonus in hot and humid Kuala Lumpur.

Closet

Closet space is on the smaller side, but it was nice to see that the hotel offered robes and slippers.

Fridge

There is also a small fridge.

The room itself is on the larger side. The bed was not very comfortable even though the hotel is relatively new.

View From Room

The view from the room is nothing to write home about.

The hotel has a rooftop an infinity pool with nice views of the city.

The Mai Bar is also located on the rooftop.

The room was relatively quiet, but somewhat dark. I find this to be a consistent problem throughout the chain as lighting seems to be a premium.

Prices seem to be fairly low, and you cannot beat the convenience of staying right next to the train station, and in the city, if needing to get to the airport early.
