One of the essential parts of planning for a family getaway is choosing a hotel that will provide a great experience for all.

There are many things that parents look for in a hotel when travelling with young ones, especially those aged five and below.

Perhaps it could be a spacious room, a hotel that offers child-friendly facilities and activities, a fun-filled swimming pool area and more.

All this is to keep both parents and children happy - there’s only room to make sweet memories while on vacation!

Kuala Lumpur is dotted with sleek, trendy hotels but there are also ones that go the extra mile to keep the small ones happy.

Here is a list of kid-friendly hotels that you may want to check out if you’re planning for a holiday in the city.

Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre provides plenty of options for family stays but it is best to opt for their two-bedroom family residence that can accommodate children, where one of the rooms has a bunk bed which also comes with a Playstation.

As for the older children, they might enjoy heading to The Zone, the hotel’s social hub which has iMacs, PlayStations and Xboxes for the kids to spend their time while the parents unwind.

Not only that, the hotel also comes with The Zone movie theatre and complimentary shuttle bus services within KLCC to head to the nearest local attractions, Aquaria.

Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral Kids love camping - whether it’s outside or pretend camp indoors. Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral can arrange for Camp Aloft to be set up in your hotel room, which includes a kids' air mattress, tent, and goodie bag with games for kids.

The boutique hotel appears to be a somewhat corporate place at first impression. But, with plenty of bright, colourful components thrown in, it's safe to say that youngsters will feel perfectly at home here as well.

You and your family can chill out at common areas such as re:fuel by Aloft, a self-serve pantry where you can grab a cup of coffee with a muffin or two; or splash around at the sleek rooftop swimming pool.
