Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral
No 5, Jalan Stesen Sentral, Kuala Lumpur Sentral,
50470 Kuala Lumpur,
Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur,
I just had a wonderful short trip to KL last week. I am so happy with my selection for accommodation. I am quite particular when selecting hotels - so I was glad to find Aloft cosy, safe & most importantly is easy accessibility by any kind of transport. Aloft is super duper convenient when it comes to commuting to and fro KLIA. You just need to take KLIA Airport Express (28mins non stop airport transfer - RM35 for each person) to reach KL Sentral - and Aloft is just within 5 minutes walk from KL Sentral Station !
Aloft Kuala Lumpur is under Global Luxury Hotel Group - Starwood Hotel & Resorts Worldwide Inc. Aloft has 482 rooms which is the largest Aloft property in the world. Aloft KL was almost brand new when we arrived.
Hotel Lobby. Check-in receptionist was very polite & professional.
Our Room - 1101
Bathroom and toilets - big mirrors on our left hand side. We love the colors and patterns that Aloft chose. We love the glass panels and the overall clean straight lines. Very minimalist.
The bath comes with dispensers for soaps and shampoos. Actually i don't mind using dispenser instead of using bottle shampoos & body baths as we can know how much this saves in terms of being eco-friendly.
The bedroom area - is a huge king size bed with a nice retro mini couch !
We love the headboard art - this was a grand statement about KL and "cari makan" as in "food trip" ! How apt and how it reflects that this is the purpose of our trip !
Hotel F&B Outlets & Facilities
RE:FUEL is 24/7 chic open concept convenient store located within the hotel. Is completely designed by Aloft and fits right into the hotel lobby area. This is the place where you go to have a quick bite, snack & drink at anytime ! The store stocks custom ALOFT merchandise like ALOFT fruit juices, fruits, candies, pies, snacks, etc. We came here almost everyday to buy their fruit juices and store in our empty mini bar upstairs.
W XYZ Bar
W XYZ is a bar where u can have your cocktails & snack. You even can play snooker at the bar or hold a meeting. The bar is decorated with street artwork. We found ALOFT to be very suited to a hotel for Gen Y people, who could chill, meet, collaborate on projects, etc. Is surely a place where new ideas are discussed and formed.
Infinity Pool - I enjoyed early mornings at the ALOFT where the pool had almost no one dipping into it other than me. It closes at 7pm, but you still can sit at pool side and enjoy the night view. It is just beside Mai Bar, so at night - there are people relaxing at the bar and chilling on those pink seats looking out to the amazing KL skyline below.
OverallJust so impressed by modern & chic design of the hotel as well as good guest service provided to us. We will be back again to Aloft very soon !
Thank-you for reading.
