Needs decoration
Mar 2021 • Family
Outward, it looks nice. Inside it is old. The maintenance is not done for years, we guessed. After good maintenance,a fresh paint and decorative things needs to be installed.

A great Transportation Hub in the city. You can take Express Train or Bus to the Airport. Also MRT & LRT to connect you to various parts of the City.
Lots of Shops & Restaurants. And connected to NU Sentral Mall and 3 Hotels.

Railway, Shopping and Eating Hub
Jan 2020
First up - the Tripadvisor owned photo is not of KL Sentral Railway Station - the Tripadvisor photo is of the "old" (but still used) Kuala Lumpur Station which is the next station stop North of Sentral. KL Sentral is a modern complex which provides a hub for some six (or more) railway (and Bus) lines - including the line to and from KLIA - the airport. The Station is very busy until around 9:00 pm when by that time many of the small service shops have closed. The best part of the Sentral Station (apart from rail and bus connections) is that it has some major hotels nearby, and has a large adjoining multi-storey shopping complex next door - we used it mainly for eating purposes. We stayed at the Majestic Hotel opposite the old Kuala Lumpur Station and using their free shuttle service we travelled down to Sentral for a cheaper and more varied selection of foods. There are many restaurants and take-aways scattered throughout the shopping complex. The adjoining shopping complex is air-conditioned and there are clean toilet facilities - most have a small fee but there are some away from the main thoroughfares which are free. Back at the Sentral Station, if you are using the KLIA Ekspres or KLIA Transit train to get to KLIA airport, there is a handy luggage check in facility for a range of airlines which allows you to drop your luggage off at the station and have it loaded on your flight - up to 8 hours before your flight time - you have to buy or have a train ticket to use it. Saves you having to avoid the airport rush and having to drag your luggage around with you. Check with your airline company but I believe the station check in is only available for Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Dragon, and Malindo Air. As a second last point, about 200 metres South East of Sentral is the Brickfields area which is an Asian Indian enclave and includes Indian Markets, restaurants, Temples and street food - well worth a look. Lastly, we had a lot of difficulty trying to find a Liquor Store - all we wanted was a bottle of whiskey to take back to our hotel room (because the drinks available at the hotels were far too expensive) - the Brickfields area was the ONLY place we found to buy bottles of liquor.

Travel hub
Feb 2020
The modern railway station on several levels among skyscrapers can be reached by GoKL red line, metro and also monorail through the adjoining mall. New ETS trains depart for Butterworth/Penang and Arau/Langkawi several times daily with most economical prices for a journey of 4-6 hours. The Klia Express takes you fastest to the airport in 30 minutes without stops in between. The old Mughal style colonial railway station is one stop from KL Sentral and a bit misleadingly named Kuala Lumpur.

The heart of train transportation in KL.
Jan 2020 • Family
It was my first time travel to KL Malaysia and I didn't expect that they have this kind of terminal station that all train are connected in one main station. This is also the station where we dropped by aero bus from KLIAT2 because we are going to Hilton KL for our stay in KL and vice versa going to KLIAT2. This is the station where you can commute all way the to reach your destination around Kuala Lumpur.

Convenient

Easy to find and easy to use but not as good as what you find in Europe for basic transportation. Just okay

Your typical central station
Oct 2019
We arrived at this station from the airport. It was not too difficult to find our way to the platform for our train to the hotel. During my stay I passed through this station several times and never found it a big issue finding my way around. For new travellers, I recommend getting a KL TravelPass at the airport (before you board the express train into KL) then you can easily travel around once in KL. Just be aware of which services are included for free and which you need to top up money for. You must use a specific top up machine (I can't recall which) for the TravelPass. There is a logo on the back of the card you need to look out for when looking for the correct top up machine to use.
