Nice looking little dirt hole

by web-administrator (July, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Luke) Security is overly aggressive even seems intentional to westerners. Do they think I travel from North America to a Muslim country to put the bomb in my sunscreen. Or jam their prescious X-ray oven with my bag. Washrooms were wet and stunk like fish diarrhoea, no soap, paper towels, toilet paper No phone charging, but great wifi No shops accept credit cards, they made me do minimum purchase. There were some staff in KLIA2 that were actually jerks to deal with. Turned my back and my cigarettes were stolen. Will not come back if there's a choice. Period

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

Nightmare

by web-administrator (June, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(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.

Comfortable

by andrewts (December, 2015)


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).

Kuala Lumpur - Low cost Carrier Transit

by web-administrator (February, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) I had a nearly ten hour layover that began at midnight. There is a hotel, which books up quickly- book ahead! I had booked a six hour stay, but when I found out my flight was going to be arriving later than originally scheduled, I cancelled thinking it would not be worth the money. I did not find 'quiet rooms' or recliners, but there are lots of places to camp out and many people doing so. I was able to stretch out on the floor in a spot where no one bothered me. The temperature is also comfortable- not too cold or hot. There is a spa that opens in the morning, and I was able to get a shower for about 8.00 (U.S.) Plenty of food options and free wifi which works quite well. They also have places for kids and a sports lounge, and a movie lounge, though I didn't use any of these.

KLIA2 Review

by web-administrator (April, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) This new terminal in KL was designed for optimized passenger inconvenience. The corridors to the gates are narrow just after security and get wider towards the last gates. There is a mandatory 120 meter long handicap ramp at every single gate and the ramp is too narrow for anyone to get past slow passengers. The walking distance to the gates is incredible and the travellators make up less than 10 of the distance. I cannot believe anyone has said anything nice about KLIA2...

Sleeping and having a bath in KLIA 1/Terminal M

by ekoradesna (April, 2016)


Reason for Stay: Other
Where: Landside
Pros: Drinking water, bath room with shower and sleeping places
Cons: Very difficult to find and no train/bus to KLCC after 23.00


- Drinking water tap can be found at the lowest floor to the right behind the airline offices - Bath room with shower can be found near the same location although its only cold water and the sprayer is broken, no problem - Sleeping places are benches at the 5th floor near the viewing area. Some are at the 4th and 3rd floor but the best is at the 5th floor

Horrible toilets

by web-administrator (April, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Worst toilets I have seen at any airport. You couldn't even pass outside them, so smelly. Inside was horrible. Dirty, unkept, untidy and smelled like hell. Would prefer another airport next time. And no vegetarian food anywhere!

Lots of people and nice carpets

by web-administrator (March, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) I arrived very late in Kuala Lumpur at KLIA2 and decided to stay for the night. As soon as you get in the arrival hall, two sections behind glass partitions have very nice carpeted floors. These spots are very popular and were all taken when I got there. So I went further into the mall where the stores and shops were on the same level and found a carpeted corridor where a few people were already sleeping. I slept until 5am when a security guard had to wake everybody up with a whistle because the mall was officially opening. I went back towards the arrivals hall and realized the area behind the glass partition is available past 5am for sleep and therefore is a much better place. Overall it was a pretty good experience and I felt quite safe since many people were in the same situation as me.
