Located about 30 minutes train journey away from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Kuala Lumpur, Aloft Hotel is a modern, boutique 4-star hotel conveniently located in the heart of the city. With spacious rooms, modern, well-equipped facilities, and an excellent location next to the NU Sentral shopping mall and a major train station interchange, Aloft Hotel is a popular hotel of choice for both business and leisure travellers.

Ambience at Aloft Hotel is colourful, modern, and eye-catching. The clean, straight lines of the place is offset by loud, quirky, modern furniture, and whimisical wall paintings. The hotel has large windows, letting in natural lighting as well as offering a view of the surrounding city. Generally clean as well, carpets and walls are stain-free, without any musky odour. Excellent!

Rooms at Aloft Hotel are large and spacious, well-stocked with various amenities, although the lighting within the rooms is rather dim. The bathroom is clean and well-stocked with amenities, and the beds are large and comfortable. The cable television has a small selection of international channels. My biggest complaint is the air-conditioning, I felt the room was warm and stuffy, as even the corridors outside were cooler in temperature. I couldn't sleep properly my 1st night here, until I asked them to fix it. When staff came, they cleaned the air filter, and the temperature at least become slightly bearable. Worst air-conditioning for a hotel I've ever experienced.

Food at Aloft Hotel is decent, and I find their local Malaysian style dishes to be much tastier, and better executed, than dishes of other cuisines. The Nook restaurant offers a decent variety of international cuisine, with hygiene and taste of pretty good standards. However, the convenient location of Aloft Hotel means there is a multitude of food options directly around the hotel, many of which are cheaper and tastier than the food you get within the hotel.

Service at Aloft Hotel is good. Staff reacted quickly to fix my air-conditioning when I called, sending an engineer to clean the filter. They also performed requests such as laundry collection quickly, and room service orders are fulfilled within 30 minutes. Staff were able to accomodate my requests for extention of stay without any hassle, and the doormen proactively opened doors for guests, as well as assisted them in hailing taxis. However, I wish the waiters in the bars would properly advise customers on what they're ordering, as I ordered too much on 1 occasion because I wasn't aware of the portion size.

Facilities & Activities
The facilities and activities at Aloft Hotel cater to all manner of travellers. Business types will find the clean, brightly lit, spacious meetings rooms and business centre pleasing, being well-equipped with modern facilities and stocked with amenities. Families will find the rooftop swimming pool with children's splash pool a delight, offering a nice view of the city. The gymnasium is well-equipped with a range of machines, while Camp Aloft is custom designed for young children to enjoy their stay at Aloft Hotel. Plus, the shopping mall is just next door! And with a major train station interchange at the door-step, getting anywhere in the city takes about 20 - 50 minutes!
