Review: Hilton Hotel KL Sentral
|January 8, 2016||Posted by Ann Khee under Lifestyle|
This is the first time we had a stay cation. It may seem weird for most people. Grown up in kl, still live in kl and still want to holiday in kl? Why not travel outside of kl? There are plenty of places to go within Malaysia.
In case, the word stay cation is too overwhelming, I’ll list the definition here according to Wikipedia.
” A stay cation is a neologism for a period in which an individual or family stays and relaxes at home, possibly taking day trips to area attractions. ”
The search for which hotel to stay took us some time. Well some are way beyond our budget. Plus during the super peak season in Christmas month, hotel rates go up every single day. I wish stock market are like this *wink.
We shortlist few hotels which are in the central of town. Either within walking distance to KLCC or Bukit Bintang. Reason? So we can just walk over the roads to eat! Simple. No stress. However we found out that many hotels don’t have baby/kids pool. We are going with a young child, of course a hotel with kids pool is top priority. Oh dear! That means we have to eliminate few preferred hotels.
In the end, we found Hilton Sentral.
Why Hilton Sentral? Because of its swimming pool! Yes. The pool is fantastic. Beautifully landscaped free form swimming pool with slide and water falls. The kids pool is tiled with white, so it does look like a white beach. While the adult’s pool is in the usual blue. Tell you, the slide is so popular that there are times, you need to queue for your turn.
Location wise, good. Just opposite KL Sentral. There is a covered walkway, so rain or shine, we can walk over anytime to eat. Yay! Within KL Sentral and the nearby Sooka Sentral, there are few decent restaurants which serves good food.
Our room is King Deluxe Lake View in 44m2. The bedroom is not that spacious, just okay, but the bathroom is huge. Bathroom is divided into 3 areas – rain shower area, bath tub and dresser, and wc. What we like about the bathroom is it’s openness. The bathroom has glass mirrored sliding doors. So imagine yourself soaking in hot bubble bath, overlooking the view … just awesome.
Let the photos explain itself now …
We really like the huge rain shower. Can’t compare to the one we had at home *sob sob. Plus there’s a foldable plastic chair to sit while bath. Cool!
Bidet-styled toilet. No need hand bidet.
A quick note: Hilton Hotel and Le Meridian Hotel are beside each other. In fact some of the facilities are shared eg. swimming pool and gym. From parking levels, take the lift to go up to lobby. Then enter left or right (of course based on which hotel you booked)

The swimming pool.
Stay cation can be quite relaxing. A quick break de-stress during the weekend. Looking forward for another one (possibly)
