Sometime in June, we utilised our complimentary room voucher at the Hilton KL Sentral. These one night city "staycations" are a good break for us to get-away from the daily routine yet without having to do the long drives.
Hubby and I have always prefer modern/contemporary designed hotels over more traditional-themed decors, so the Hilton KL suited us to a T. I love our ultra modern room - it was on the Executive Floor, reserved for Hilton Honors guests. The room was very spacious, with a humonguous bathroom - with separate tub, standing shower, separate toilet cubicle, and two sliding wardrobe sections.
Super king bed, with a long daybed sofa at the left hand side, just nice for my son to sleep on.
|There's even a folding seat in the standing shower area.|
|The tub functions as a jacuzzi as well|
|Good quality toiletries.|
|Remember to bring your own water, or just use the kettle|
|View of the Aloft Hotel right opposite our room. |
That's the rooftop pool in between the two trees.
|After settling our stuffs in the room, it's time to check out the pool.|

|Because the Hilton KL and the Le Meridien are connecting hotels, |
the pool also runs in an elongated design spanning the two hotels.
|There's a gentle snaking slide that the kids love.|

|I must say this gym is the most impressive of all the hotel gyms|
I've ever seen. It is HUGE, and well equipped.
|The changing rooms are even more impressive. |
|Aromatherapy oils, and other toiletries. Maybe I should |
consider switching my gym membership to here ;P
We decided to use the meal voucher for dinner instead of breakfast the next day (so we could sleep in and enjoy the room a bit longer :P).
Dinner was buffet style at the Vasco's (formerly called Sudu). As with all buffets, it can be a hit-and-miss affair; with some good items and some so-so ones. Here at the Vasco's, they have all the usual stations.
|The Japanese section|
|The dim sum section and the noodle station|
|They had a few surprises, which made this buffet totally memorable |
for hubs and me. Like this one - durian topping on hot waffles!
And it was VERY good!!
|Freshly baked madeleines|
|Lescure butter?! Needless to say, I couldnt resist, |
especially with their freshly baked ham, cheese and capsicum bread rolls.
|Hubby walloped so many of these, he said they were super fresh and juicy.|
|And so the next day we skipped breakfast and had a light lunch |
at Iketeru, the Hilton's Japanese restaurant. You walk through
a cave-like tunnel and emerged into a Japanese garden with
streams and pools, leading to the restaurant. Very pretty.
