Review of Aloft Hotel Kuala Lumpur

I was away in Kuala Lumpur (KL) over the Hari Raya and our Singapore National Day holidays for the long weekend. We had a fair in KL, and we stayed at this four star property  - Aloft Hotel, which is located right opposite the KL Sentral Train Station. It is only 28 minutes ride to the Airport from here.

The three of us, all ladies, were very happy to stay here. It is a modern, chic hotel, right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. To go to Bukit Bintang where you find the cafes, restaurants and pubs, it was a ride on the mono rail for about 6 stations. The name of the station is Bukit Bintang itself.

I was very glad that I had the opportunity to meet up two of my contacts there who bought me tea  and lunch.

Take a look at the pictures below featuring the Aloft Hotel .

Excellent Location of Aloft Hotel (Opp KL Sentral Train Station)
It is only about 10 min drive to the Mid Valley Mega Mall. This is where you could find lots of food.

20 min ride to Bukit Bintang

30 min ride to Puchong, the new and upcoming area with eateries, offices. No public transport.

10 min drive to Publica Mall, where you find food, supermarket, and shops

10 min drive to Mont Kiara, and the residential condo - Tijani 2.

10 min drive to Damansara Heights. We have our Travel Preview, here every Sunday at 2 pm.

It had been almost 8 years since I last came to KL. And this time, we booked the coach, and paid a premium for the tickets - SINKUL ($36), and return KULSIN (Rm100)

This is due to the public holidays weekend. Otherwise, the usual KULSIN ticket costs about RM50.

Food -
Love the food here in Malaysia.

More Pictures of the food to come along.

My contact brought me to S.Wine Cafe at Publica Mall. The food is really delicious.

And on the Sunday morning, I managed to join the locals for a hike up to Bukit Puchong. The taxi driver was not familiar with the way, and took me on a longer ride, so in the end, I was late. So, the group had started with their hikes up the hill. Fortunately, the plan was to do 2 loops, so I simply waited for them at the beginning of the Trail Head.

This is considered an easy or moderate hike, so most of the people would be able to manage quite easily.
