I'm looking at booking this hotel in April for a one-night stay following a very late arriving flight into KLIA. My inbound flight arrives at 12:05 AM from Hong Kong, does this hotel allow check-ins after 12:00 AM? Also, how close is this hotel to KLIA station?
Can't comment much about the 12am check in but normally airport hotels are quite flexible with their check in timings. I'm not sure though if you need to pay for a full day's rate for the day before your check in or half day rate as per the hotel's website. As for the distance between the hotel and the airport , they are basically next to each other connected by a link bridge. The hotel will also provide a buggy to help you cross the link bridge if you're travelling with lots of baggage. Alternatively , you can just walk . It's very near.
I arrived KL International Airport past midnight too. They did allow late check in as I informed the management prior to arrival. The hotel is an annex to the airport itself, connected via an air-conditioned overhead bridge, about 300m away. Hotel-airport-hotel buggy was also available but I forgot whether this service would be available during the wee hours. I suggest you check with the hotel.
The Sama-Sama Hotel is connected to the Airport and is available for 24 hours, I have stayed at just overnight between flights, and more other flights for longer times at the Hotel. The Hotel is very nice, the rooms are great, the staff are excellent, the different food choices are very nice. The swimming pool is also great, I love it. I can recommend the Sama-Sama Hotel as I of the best Hotels I have stayed at
and can recommend others would also enjoy their relaxing time in the Sama-Sama Hotel. It only takes a few minutes to transfer from the flight, either by a short walk of by a short buggy ride.
You can check in at any time you want, just call them in a day before to notify on your late check in. The hotel is connected to KLIA by their own covered bridge, so walking there is quite convenient if you couldnt get the hotel buggy around the airport.
Of course they operate 24hours, including check in. Why on earth would you think they would close up shop..!! Check is actually available in the baggage hall by carousel 7, I believe, But please check, as I think this service is only open until 11pm. After that you have to check in within the Hotel itself.. The station I presume you refer to is the Klia express (?). It's simple, take a buggy from Hotel Reception to the Terminal Building, it's only a 2 minute trip.They can only take you as far as the escalators/elevators in departures, and simply follow the signs to Klia express It's a fantastic Hotel, with fantastic services, and I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay. My top tip: (or 2) treat yourself to a Premier floor Superior Suite upgrade (9th floor), and secondly, try the Buffet downstairs in the Restaurant.. it's superb.. and excellent value.
They seem to operate 24 hours a day. I have checked in late and also arrived very early in the morning to check in. You can actually check in to the hotel while waiting to pick up your bags in the arrivals area. From the baggage area it is a short walk to a lift and then about about a 15 metre walk to get on a golf buggy which takes you to the hotel - about a 2 minute ride. Very easy. If you want to get the train then it is also very easy to get to.
I'm sure it does allow late check ins as its an airport hotel so they most probably check people in 24/7. The train station is a short free shuttle bus trip away from the airport. you can take a short buggy ride from the hotel to the airport and take shuttles to different places from there.
