We had an 6hr overnight stopover on our way to Langkawi. This was a perfect way to get a few hours sleep and freshen up for an early morning flight. The rooms are small but functional enough and the bathroom was clean.

This hotel is in the KL International Airport KLIA1 terminal building, ideal for our six hour stopover whilst waiting for our connecting flight to Adelaide. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable and have everything you need, tea & coffee making facilities, bottled water, television, shower and WiFi. My husband made himself comfortable whilst I went shopping in the duty...

I booked a 6 hour stay at this hotel, but the reservations failed to inform the receptionist. Luckily Putri at receptions managed to find a room for me. I also showed the email confirming my check in time but this message was not passed down to the receptions!

Just came to use the gym/spa/pool. Awesome facility and only 60 R. You may need to take a train one stop to the right terminal then it is a short walk from the airport all under cover and easy sign posted

Mind which terminal you will fly to and from as the two terminals are totally separated, which had as a consequence that I had to cancel my booking in the international terminal since I was flying to and from KLIA, the low cost terminal. They did cancel it but no refund. If some management read this post, they can contact...

Visited between the hours of 23:00 - 07:00 at a cost of £65 GBP. Comfortable large bed, hot and powerful shower. Plenty of electrical charging points. Complimentary mineral water, tea and coffee. We had a fantastic sleep and left the next morning fully recharged and ready for the next sector. Great sound insulation results in no aircraft noise in the...

I was flying to Jakarta from KB, when my connecting flight was delayed. As a result, I missed my night flight to Jakarta and was put on an early morning flight courtesy of the airlines. I can not speak to value, because it was sponsored by the airlines. I believe they even rent the room based on 6 hours intervals....

Sama Sama Express is a small hotel for layover passengers to rest, take a shower and freshen up. The rooms are basic without windows but are comfortable and have things like coffee maker, shower with towels and other stuff. Recommended for people with layovers - however some windows and more food choices can help the hotel.

Clean simple rooms, nice staff and you can't be the location. I was out my door and at my gate in minute. Perfect if you have a long layover at KL. Pricing is in four hour blocks too! Always cook to have a view of an active taxiway, but no noise at all.

Took their 6-hr day package for 65$ approx. Honestly, this is the only option airside- the other one (Snooze) I think is closed. If you have a visa, better check into the Sama-Sama hotel next to the terminal. The room & the bed was tiny- not even big enough to stretch my legs. I could not work out the light...
