Who needs a hotel??

by hilman91 (June, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: 24 hour restaurants, long movable benches with no armrests.
Cons: frequent flight announcements

Stayed at KLIA main terminal overnight as had an early morning back to Sibu. Wanted to check-in our bags at the baggage-drop counter at 11pm because they were heavy and hard to carry but was surprised that it was possible! After supper at one of the 24 hour restaurants/franchise, we went to the viewing area to catch some shut-eye. Pleasantly long movable benches were available and we pushed some vacant ones creating a small bed. Slept awfully well with extremely quiet surroundings (except the flight announcements) and dimmed lights (after 12am). Woke up the next morning and felt refreshed! Wifi is available almost everywhere but the strongest signal will be on the departure hall (level 5). A lot of people were doing the same thing we did and did not seem to mind. Just a word of warning, bring a jacket or two as the temperature may drop ar continued >>

Showers at klia

by Nomad_ann (July, 2013)

Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Facilities exist...
Cons: Just hard to find

Just confirming, there is ONE free shower in klia, its just hard to find and none of the staff really know about it. Probably because its a pitiful excuse for a shower... It doesn't have a shower head, more like a tap set high above your head, but it does the job. Firstly, its in the arrivals section... So if you are in transit, you will need to clear immigration and then re enter again so you'll need to make sure you have a decent transit time. Luckily this process is pretty painless at klia. Take the lift to level 4, look for signs directing you to the airport offices. You will see a sign saying 'airline offices' and 'toilet'. The shower is the last stall in the toilet. There are no signs that there is a shower there - just look in the last stall of the toilet. It's clean, and the water is not cold, just room temperature, whic continued >>

And I was so looking forward to the leather couch!

by thecuriousimp (July, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Just for the fun of it
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: The internet was really fast and the restaurants were open
Cons: Really hot and humid outside and no place to sleep except on the floor

My friend introduced me to this site and so I wanted to try it during my most recent trip, just for the fun of it. I've heard so many good things about the airport in KL that I figured it would be a great first experience. Reading the last review on this site further encouraged me... I was all set to find that 4th floor on KLIA and sleeping on those leather couches =) My plane arrived after midnight at LCCT (budget terminal). I asked the friendly airport staff where I can ride the shuttle bus going to KLIA. She told me that it's at Lane 3, in front of Coffeee Bean & Tea Leaf... but that the last shuttle between budget terminal and KLIA is 12mn and the first isn't till 6am! If I was in a hurry, I can take a taxi between the 2 terminals for for RM45 surcharge (only after midnight). Grief! Determined to sleep in an airport, and frankly continued >>

Sama-Sama Spa Package

by web-administrator (January, 2013)

Pros: -
Cons: -

From an email I received from Natalya: The Sama Sama Hotel (over the sky bridge connected to the airport, a 2-3minute walk) will sell you a day spa package for 60 ringgits (about 20US or 15). It includes use of the outdoor pool, sauna, spa pools, fitness centre, lockers, showers and free wifi. You'll also get a stack of fluffy white towels and a pack of flashy toiletries - backpacker bliss. I turned up around 10am and spent the entire day lying by the pool and sleeping on their pool loungers, before wrapping it up with a session in the gym and leaving around 9pm. You can of course splurge and order poolside drinks/food, but you can also leave your gear there and walk the 2-3mins back to the airport food court. Just ignore the sweet Sama Sama concierge guys who stop you along the walk to warn that the hotel might be a little too expensi continued >>
