Hotel Review 2021: Aloft KL Sentral

The Aloft brand is Starwood’s answer targeted towards the W crowd. The slogan of the hotel is “A Vision of W Hotels”, and as everyone know W Hotels are young, funky and cool, targeted for the younger age group, and of course those young at heart…

The Aloft KL Sentral hotel is conveniently attached to Kuala Lumpur’s Sentral railway station, and that means coming with direct airport access and the convenience of being able to just go anywhere in Kuala Lumpur or Malaysia from the KL Sentral main station, making the location of the hotel ideal whether you are arriving on a late flight and just need to get to the hotel as soon as possible or you have an early morning flight and prefer having the most painless access to the airport train or bus service…

Aloft KL Sentral takes effort with the usual contact-tracing measures and temperature checks and as per Marriott’s “Commitment to Clean”, Aloft KL Sentral has also taken precautionary measures with enhanced cleaning processes for all guestrooms, facilities and public areas….

Hourly cleaning and sanitation are done diligently by the housekeeping staff, masks and gloves are used by all associates, hand sanitisers available in public areas, air quality control and more to ensure a safe environment for all guests and associates….

Checking in was a breeze with the SOP in place, and after filling up a declaration form and a glass barrier separating the receptionist and me…

Since the official check in time was suppose to be 3pm, and I was there about 2 – and my appointed room was still not ready, I headed to W XYZ for a cuppa tea… Within minutes, the receptionist sent my key over and told me my room was ready…

My Urban room was located on the 26th floor, facing Hilton Kuala Lumpur and Le Meridien KL…

The nice thing about getting the Urban room means you get some snacks and the mini bar complimentary as well!!! And they are generous enough to put 4 bottles of Spritzer mineral water in the room…

My room was bright, spacious and full of natural light of you left the blinds opened… Or if you closed the blinds then it is cosy and private…

It came with a plush king sized bed and work space with high speed internet access…

I like how the Aloft KL Sentral hotel is swanky and cool, but it is also perfect for those travelling for business…

The Urban room came with a spacious bathroom /changing room with the wardrobe on one side and the shower cubicle and toilet cubicle on the other side… Bathroom amenities include soap, toothbrush, body lotion, shower cap and so on…

The joy of staying in a nice hotel is usually getting to strip and just wear the hotels robe when you are in the privacy of your room, and Aloft KL Sentral has some nice fluffy oversized ones to get cosy in, along with a couple of pair of bedroom slippers.

You can also find the hair dryer, iron and ironing board conveniently available in the Urban room….

Of course, when having a staycation, there’s nothing more enjoyable then a dip in the pool…

And Aloft KL Sentral has a pretty cool pool on the rooftop with a mesmerizing view of KL Sentral and beyond… I truly enjoyed my reinvigorating dip..

Dinner was a quiet but truly delightful and filling event at Nook, the Aloft’s restaurant where I enjoyed the Eat Lah dinner buffet with a close friend…

Falling asleep after relaxing for the night after such a filling dinner was just inevitable especially when snuggling down on Aloft’s cosy king sized bed and comfy pillows…

Breakfast was served at W XYZ restaurant on the ground floor as it was a weekday…

There are 5 types of breakfast sets to choose from and the food and drinks came cling-wrapped, and it was oretty well prepared, and presented unlike a certain 5 star hotel I was at….

For those who needed some workout, the Re:Charge fitness centre was certainly more then adequate for a nice “recharge”….

Overall, there are about 382 rooms which are divided into 4 different types of rooms – loft, urban, breezy suite, sweet suite…

And would so love to stay here again…

Address – No. 5, Jalan Stesen Sentral, Kuala Lumpur Sentral, 50470 Kuala Lumpur
