Good experience for my first time sleeping here

by alvianantia (May, 2016)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Everything is just good and well-serviced
Cons: Not many chair or seats near the charging spot / electricity socket

My flight is on tomorrow morning at 7.40 local time at that day but I came to the airport on the day before at around evening, 4-5PM. Since it's my first time to sleep and being here so I was confused since it's 3-floored airport and the main departure gate is at the very top floor...hahaha. So I sit near the food court first (2nd floor), since it's quite silent and not many people there then I moved to the departure gate at around 9PM to eat McDonalds also. It's safe to leave your luggage there while sleeping but make sure you still hang in there or hang at least your hands on your luggage. Only a number of security there during the night, but still many of people walking around either waiting for their morning flights or late night flights. Restaurants also open for 24 hours so it all are pleasant ^^ but the chair is...pretty cold? hahaha no, I mean, it's not like a normal sofa but just a chair, and it's just good if only for a light sleep (I can't fully fell asleep actually .) Oh ya, the duty free at the departure gate also has vary things to buy!!! I love it the most ^^ the shopkeeper will warmly welcome you

(Guest review) Having to spend 6 hours of transit time at this airport was the worst experience ever. Arriving at midnight, we were welcomed by empty hallways, closed counters and dark alleys. The airport was practically sleeping. There were hardly any staff to guide or provide clarifications. Toilets were dirty, barely any drinking water facility, no sitting/sleeping areas, malfunctioning escalators, freezing air conditioners, we couldn't ask for more. Icing on the cake was that the premium lounge opens at 7 am. Seriously!!!! We had to practically stretch ourselves in the food court, as there was no other place for transiting passengers. Come on, who keeps the lounge closed at night.

Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Landside
Pros: It's somewhere to sleep.
Cons: Security is getting tighter.

On my most recent occasion of sleeping in KLIA-2, I found that it had gone down in quality. In the past, sleeping was perfectly simple and pleasant. On this occasion, it was more difficult to find somewhere to sleep, without the security staff opposing me. The area between the 'mall' area of the terminal and the actual departures area, is outdoors and the benches fill-up quickly, though this only an option if you can bear the heat. Get in early.

Kuala Lumpur Airport Review

by web-administrator (October, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) I had a layover of around 8 hours at KLIA. There are no comfortable seats to have a nap. The departure gates are not announced until the last moment. The lights in most of the areas are too bright. The only hotel inside the airport is exorbitantly priced. The only saving grace was the multiple food options.

Kuala Lumpur - KLIA2

by web-administrator (February, 2016)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) The ambiance is comforting and excellent as it was new airport. A lot of outlets and shops, it's more like a shopping mall rather than airport. Be alert of your departure gate because the location of the gates, urghhh... be sure to spare at least 1 hour before your international boarding as walking to the gate will take about 30 minutes, not counting the duty-free shopping, eating and whotnot. They do provide free cart shuttle, but it will only get you as far as the security check and not frequent. Due to some problem (*cough*corruption*cough*) during the construction, a lot of the gates near the terminal rendered unusable, so they opted to use the further gates. Same beautiful condition with domestic terminal, only less shops. For smokers on night flight, please bring your nicotine patch. The smoking room is closed at night (I think around 8,9 pm last time I went there in Aug 2015).
