“Great place to stay prior to catching an early flight.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

This is a great place to stay if you are catching an early morning flight. The hotel is only 15 minutes from KLIA. Rooms have everything you would require for a nights stay: comfy bed, nice towels, toiletries, spacious bathroom. Unfortunately there are a couple of negatives that need to be addressed: No restaurant on site, nearest eateries are 5 minutes drive away. Breakfast consists of only tea, coffee and toast. But the biggest issue is the sound proofing, you can almost hear a pin drop in your neighbours room! Putting these negatives aside, I would definitely stay here again.

I booked for the four snuggle room for a night at this hotel, small room but okay for all of us girls. The shower was also okay. What I liked the most of this hotel would be the lobby decor which is a mix of classic and pop art.
My advice for staying in this hotel is that get something to eat by the airport and ask them to pick you up, especially on night flights, because from what I see at 10 pm, there are hardly any restaurants around. And they only have breakfast on 5 am, so so don't expect to have hotel breakfast if you're leaving before 5 am.
Overall, this hotel is a nice place to stay for its 15 mins drive from the airport and its nice quiet and comfy rooms to stay to get ready for the next flight rather than staying overnight at the hotel.

I got into KL about 3pm and was leaving at 6am the next day. Youniq was great for what I needed - a quiet, comfortable, safe room to crash for the night. Clean room, great pressure in shower, comfortable bed, good wifi speed, free washing machine and dryer were a welcome addition to get some clothes washed.
I booked my room 1 day in advance so wasn't able to catch the shuttle there - they need 48 hours notice. Taxi cost about 40 MYR instead. I did catch the shuttle the next morning (for 5 MYR!)
Only 1 place to eat - right next door to the hotel. Simple food but cheap and tasty. Don't explore the area (especially if you are a single female), it's a bit dodgy. I felt quite safe in the hotel though.

On the webpage the youniq hotel stated that the shuttle will wait for extra 15 minutes but I only late for 5 minutes due to flight delay the shuttle already gone, when I call the hotel the receptionist said the shuttle already wait for extra 20 minutes and ask me to ride on a cap.

Room Tip: No tissue and mineral water, desk too small

Dear John,

So sorry that you have missed the 8:00pm shuttle that you booked to be picked up by our hotel. We have confirmed on our record after investigation that we did our part waited for 15 minutes from the time of your choice which was 8:00pm. You came 5 minutes after the shuttle departure time at 8:20pm. On the confirmation letter we sent you also stated clearly that our shuttle will leave LCCT waiting point "15 minutes" after 8:00pm which is 8:15pm sharp.

Our designated driver for your pick up that night name Rahim, he waited for you at LCCT outside entrance of the coffee bean until 8:15pm along with two other guests inside the van. To be considerate for other guests who were sitting inside the van, we had no choice but to take them back to the hotel as we promised to all guests that shuttle will leave airport 15 minutes after the choice of pick up time.

You chose to be at the waiting point at 8:00pm, however you came more than 15 minutes later.

We always advise guest to have at least 30 minutes in between flight arrival time and the choice of time to be picked up.

Although we are only charging a RM5.00 each way per person on our airport shuttle; however we take this service very seriously. We know exactly which guests we will be picking up at what time and with how many guests in total.

Our management takes pride in our service to all of our guests' pick up. We understand guests depends on us to pick them up and drop them off on time even we are only charging a minimum cost of RM5.00.

In regard to bottle water in the room. We actually provide a kettle for making complimentary coffee & tea that we provided in the room. we also provide a water jar in each room for guest to take as much water as they want from the filtered water machine which located in the central lounge on each floor. In each room we also inform guest drinking water is provided for free and its location with notice on the wall next to the LCD TV.


Thanks for your stay with us. we apologize on the inconvenience that cause you due to hotel policy trying our very best to provide an "affordable" airport shuttle for all of our guests.


Best regards
the youniQ Hotel Management

This boutique hotel is located near sepang area likely to capture some of the transit customers. Other than that, there really isn't a reason for it to exist because there is nothing of interest within 1 hour radius of this hotel.

My wife & I booked ourselves into this hotel plainly out of sheer curiosity. We managed to find some decent food but that requires at least an hour and a half drive from the hotel.

Check in was surprisingly painless and we had the keys to our room in 3 mins. The room we got was tiny (around 10 square metres including the bathroom!) and despite its unique designs and all, its pretty obvious that it was only meant for sleeping & nothing more. They couldn't even afford the space for a wardrobe nor a coffee & tea facility. The toilet is ok and needs some getting used to if you are a 6 footer. It meets the basic needs of a transit traveller which is a bed to crash on and a bathroom to take a shower.

The cafe downstairs was not in operations yet & breakfast is not included so please stock up on some food if you stay here. Generally the hotel & rooms are non-smoking but there is an open space on one of the floors where you can satisfy your cravings if you please. Overall, you'd get a good rest if you got a room facing off the main road.... don't expect anything more.

Stayed here twice, both during a layover. Small room, but clean and had basic amenities. 1st stay, there was an unpleasant smell coming from the bedcover but was satisfied on the 2nd stay. Shower worked great. The design of the hotel was nice and unique. Airport pick-up & send-off service were excellent, very cheap and on time. Definitely will stay here again.

Everything about this place is very nice. The bedrooms are comfortable. Good amount of space, comfortable beds, effective aircon, strong hot shower. The decor is cool and everything is very clean and feels of a good standard. The airport pickup/drop off service is excellent! For the price you pay I am not entirely sure it is worth it but it certainly takes the hassle out of getting to the airport from KL city.
