First thing first, aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is centrally located in the business hub of the city of Kuala Lumpur where globe trotters meet, mingle, and relax. It ticks all the boxes with amenities like ballrooms, meeting rooms, lobby lounge, rooftop sky bar, as well as strong Food & Beverage outlets that cater for just what you need for either business or pleasure. As we had caught the airport train, it was reassuring to know that it stops directly under this hotel, so ease of access was a winner.
The moment we step into the hotel, we cannot help but got carried away by the vibes of its bright colours ambience and décor, the space separating cubes and use of glass partitions to carve up the lobby yet still allowing you to see where everything is at a glance. The reception island is placed in the middle of the lobby sort of a round theatre with staff standing inside making a 360 degree access for enquiries and welcoming in its design.
The lift quickly transports us to our floor and the corridors enroute to our room carry on the theme of bright colours art work and quirky design elements that put a smile on our face before we even enter to our room. Waiting for us on our late arrival was some playful welcome amenities to fit the vibe of the hotel – a mini steel bucket filled with chocolate dipped strawberries, mini jelly beans and mini marshmallows to send us off to sleep with some sweet dreams, a thoughtful mode to get pampered upon entering the room. Our corner room is incredibly capacious and boasts a king-size bed with humourous Malaysia cartoon art work by Lat – an infamous veteran artist Mohamed Nor Khalid above the bed head. Do spend a few seconds to read and understand the humour as it is another way of welcoming gesture by aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral.

On the other side of the lobby reception comes RE:FUEL, a grab and go café where you can choose from light snacks and beverages that are easy to pick-up and go.
The rooftop poolside Tiki-themed Mai Bar offering open spaces indoors and outdoors is one of the current hang out for the locals especially in the evening.
