Dear Sir/Madam, The cheapest way to get to the hotel is by the Airport Bus. The cost per way is RM5.00 per adult and RM3.00 per child below 12 years. Tickets can be purchased at the ticket booth available at the airport. However, the shuttle service is only available from 0800hrs until 2015hrs depending from which terminal you depart and the drop-off point is a mere 10-minute walk to the hotel. For convenience, you may get a taxi from the airport to the hotel at RM30.00 per way. Thank you.
