great airport

by simonari (July, 2016)

Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: lots and lots of food options and even supermarkets with good prices
Cons: some staff a little rude

I stayed in this airport for twelve hours. Slept in capsule container which was food value for money though the staff lady was a little rude. It was never boring to stay that many hours as there's just so much to see at this airport. There are so many shops and the airport is well planned for you to go in circles. An immigration lady was grumpy nut not rude. I saw some people sleeping in a separated area with chairs, but chairs were metal and on the carpet there was so much food waste that I could hardly believe that some travellers actually chose to sleep on it! I guess they were dead tired.

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.
