    Recently traveled to KL on business. Stayed at this Airport Hotel - Sama Sama. It's approximately 300 meters walking distance from the Antarbangsa KL International Airport. The best part is, you also get free buggy services, well organized by the Hotel to take you to the hotel or drop you back at KLIA.

    The Hotel, is Excellant, Clean, and good in terms of hospitality service. The staff is very courteous and helpful.

    Next time onwards, whenever I will visit KL, I will stay at Sama Sama.

    Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the ATC Tower as it's very serene on that side. If you are a business traveler and just need to travel to the city once, then this is the best option as you conclude your meetings and then retire to the hotel, while staying close to the Airport. Holiday travelers may find this option expensive as you need to spend about 70 RM/head each time you travel to the city in the KLIA Express or use a Cab that will cost around 125 RM for one way ride.

    The hotel adapts its pricing to international transit passengers who stay airside. Sama-Sama Express rents its rooms by the hour. Besides certain Amsterdam hotels that cater gentlemen in weird company, we have never seen such pricing strategy.



    Sama-Sama Express is located at the satellite building next to gate C5. Basically the hotel caters to guests who fly-in & fly-out of KLIA. Apparently the Sama-Sama KLIA was renovated in 2013.



    We had a standard room, adequately furnished and decorated, with an OK double bed and view of the airport. Windows cannot be opened, forget fresh air. No noise however from the airport as triple glass is applied.



    Our non-smoking room had a desk, flat screen TV, open wardrobe plus safe & empty fridge, a coffee & tea making facility, and a separate bathroom with washbasin, toilet and shower. Amenities included shaving gear, shower-cap and two toothbrushes plus mini-toothpaste. Both room and bathroom were very clean. Complimentary mineral water and free Wi-Fi internet.



    Staffs are attentive and highly incompetent. Our check-in was cumbersome. The Sama-Sama seems to be the type of hotel where airlines dump their cattle-class passengers in case of a major delay.



    At the Sama-Sama Express you pay for the convenient location and you pay extra for the hotel's monopoly position at KLIA.



    If you like staying at KLIA within the airport and want a low-value-for-money accommodation, please book. Should your transfer time allow you to clear customs, you will be better off near the airport at a hotel with a free shuttle service.

    Room Tip: Get yourself a room with a window

    Stayed here for a few hours, brilliant location, was so helpfull to have a few hours nap before our next flight. Check in was a bit slower than I would have liked, baby cot came really quick. Black out via curtains was very good, shower pressure was nice. Was 100% worth it felt so refreshed afterward.

    1) You must have checked in for your next flight before entering the hotel. - no problem we were checked in from LHR

    We only spent a night in this hotel as we had an early flight. I can recommend that if you have any early flight you do not want the stress of the drive from KL city. The hotel is clean and comfortable with reasonable restaurants. Staff are friendly and helpful.
