Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

Since my flight into Kuala Lumpur arrived much later than scheduled, I did not have too much time in the city.

After taking the KLIA Express from the airport to the KL Sentral train station, it was an easy walk to the Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral since it is attached to the train station. The KLIA Express is having a promotion through the end of the year. You get a 20% discount when paying with Mastercard. You can buy online, through their app, or at the ticket kiosk at the airport or Sentral station. I chose to buy through their app, which worked like a charm.

After following the signs and heading up the escalator, turn right once you reach the entrance of the mall. You will head down a walkway past some restaurants and enter the hotel on the second floor.

Take the elevator right by that entrance, as it only goes to floors one and two, so waiting shouldn’t be a problem.

Compared to my prior visit earlier in the year, check-in was quicker.

Room 1811

I was given keys to my king room.

Bathroom

Upon entering the room, the bathroom is located directly to the left. There is a single sink, a walk-in shower and toilet. The shower and toilet share the same sliding door, which can be awkward if sharing the room with another person.

Shower

The shower has dispensers for shampoo/conditioner, and body wash.

Toilet

The space for the toiler is a little cramped. In addition to the toilet, there is a hose.

Coffee Maker

Across from the toilet is the coffee maker and safe. Four bottles of complimentary water are provided, which is very generous.

Closet

Next to the coffee maker is the closets, which contains two robes, two pairs of slippers and extra towels.

Room

The room is fairly spacious with plenty space to move around. The room is on the dimmer side however, as lights are not plentiful.

Bean Bag Chair

Something that wasn’t in the room on my prior visit was a brightly pink bean bag chair.

Bed

The bed was on the firm side. There is a small night stand on either side of the bed, however outlets were only provided near the right side of the bed.

Durian Sign

There was a funny sign/slogan over the bed.

Free Drinks

One new thing that this Aloft offers is free drinks and snacks, much like the Hyatt Andaz brand does. There were two bottles of water, two soft drinks, an energy drink, orange juice, and a beer.

Free Snacks

On the snack side, there were two bags much like cheese puffs, a small canister of Pringles, oriental crackers, a small pack of Oreos, a “healthy cookie” and a bag of peanuts.

I though the drink and snack selection was very generous, and would be replaced daily. This is much more than the Andaz hotels that I have been to offer.

My stay was much better this time around. I think that since the hotel has been open for a while, some of the kinks are starting to be worked out. The Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is convenient if coming from the airport late, or for early departures.
