As I travel quite often for work, I’m going to keep a record of all the hotels I’ve stayed in, to serve as a reminder of what works and what doesn’t. It’ll make future bookings much easier. Forgot to take photos of the place, so I took them from their website. http://www.aloftkualalumpursentral.com/en/gallery/guest
Location: Connected right to the KL Sentral main station, with easy access to the KLIA. There’s a NU Sentral mall also connected with the hotel.
Room: Deluxe room is a very basic room with a small work desk. There’s a cool walk in waredrobe that’s integrated with the shower and sink area. The decor is hip but I find the overall ambiance abit too dim. I’d prefer something brighter. Although faint, you can hear the road noise through the windows. The bed is so so, although I didn’t have a very good sleep here.
Gym: Small but functional, like a condo gym. Freeweights, treadmills, ellipticals, limited weight machines.
Breakfast: Very limited spread, will give it a miss in the future. I’d rather eat at the Starbucks downstairs than here.
Other note worthy amenities: There’s a rooftop bar that overlooks the pool and other office buildings, a nice place for happy hour.
Would I return? No, unless i’m seriously budget constrained. I’d rather stay at the Le Meridien which is connected at the other side of KL Sentral station.
