So ALOFT hotels are a vision of W Hotels - I've stayed at enough W Hotels to know what their goal is - exclusive, modern, chic. I dare say that this AFLOT is better than some W Hotels I've stayed in. It's location is great if you're taking the KLIA Ekspres or the monorail or any train as it is across from the train station. We took the bus back from LCCT and walked all around out to the street and stumbled upon the hotel's back entrance, looking like hot messes when the hotel is directly in front of the KL Sentral's Main Door. If you go to the main floor and walk out, it's ahead of you. If you take the bus from LCCT, look behind you and go inside the entrance adjacent to the parking lot.
ALOFT hotels don't seem to have any suites - their rooms are all the same size. With that being said, we found the size quite adequate. It had the heavenly comfortable bed and great black out curtains. It's very modern - I don't give this 5 stars because I look at every hotel with the question as to whether I'd be able to stay there longterm - the answer is no for me. It's a great hotel - new, clean, but no storage. There are no drawers and the closet is a clothes rod with a curtain. We were only there for a night so it's ok but if you are there for more than a week, it might be annoying.
I liked ALOFT's minibar concept - the refrigerator is empty and you can go downstairs to their snack shop and purchase and fill up the fridge with anything you want or you can do like us, go to a minimarket at KL Sentral and put the food in the fridge.
Lastly, we were very impressed with the roof top bar and pool. This pool rivals the W Hong Kong in my opinion. It's well designed and functional. Bravo.
Great hotel - we enjoyed it very much but were only there for one day. If I had to spend weeks there, maybe the love would have faded but for a short business trip or vacation, it's a great hotel and really not that far to get to Bukit Bintang in light of its proximity to the Monorail.
