KL Sentral is an exclusive urban centre, a city within a city with office towers, business suites, 5-star hotels, luxury condominiums and a shopping mall. It is built around Malaysia largest transit hub, the Stesen Sentral, Kuala Lumpur’s integrated rail transportation centre. Travellers coming into Kuala Lumpur by train, they will definitely end at Stesen Sentral. For air travellers, if they don’t have anyone to pick them up, buses and rail services from the LCCT and KLIA end at Stesen Sentral too. Then on they can continue with their journey, take the LRT or taxis for trips within the city of Kuala Lumpur, to Putrajaya (the Federal Government Administrative Centre) or, continue their journey north or south of Kuala Lumpur to other town or other state of Malaysia by train. Stesen Sentral is specifically a hub for train and air travellers for travels within, into or out of the country.
Stesen Sentral has almost all the essentials that a traveller needs, cheap food, fast food, free wifi, convenience shops, ATMs, showers and lockers, or a place for left lugage. Budget airline AirAsia has opened an office just recently. One thing that is missing is cheap lodging to stay the night although for deep pocket travellers Hilton and Le Meridien hotels are just next to it. All in all, Stesen Sentral is very convenient for travellers, be it local or foreign. The one thing to note here is that the words Stesen Sentral that is within KL Sentral are totally been engulfed by the words KL Sentral. If you want to go to Stesen Sentral, instead of saying Stesen Sentral just say KL Sentral. You won’t go wrong because that is what the locals have been saying it all along even though you are being specific.
