Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral- the perfect hotel for families

We recently had friends over to visit KL and they stayed at the Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral.

I will admit that I had never been in the hotel before, but I’m so glad I’ve now seen it! They have the cutest little set-up for young travelers with their ‘Camp Aloft’ concept and I thought I’d share it with you all! 

Aimed at children aged 2-12, they have kid-sized mattresses, a mini play tent, AND a goodie bag of fun games to keep them busy while in the room.

If that isn’t enough, the hotel has a lovely swimming pool with great views and is located at Sentral Station making access to the rest of the city incredibly easy, oh… and you can play a massive game of snakes and ladders in the lobby!!

Definitely a very nice family hotel in the centre of all the action worth looking into when travelling to KL, S x
