any hotels in kl city offer free airport shuttle

Hello,

Do any city centre hotels offer a free shuttle service from klia, just looking at booking a hotel and can't see anything mentioned about shuttle like in other cities. Just wondering if it exists.

Thanks in advance

no doesn't exist.

The only hotel that I know that offers a free shuttle services is the sama sama. The shuttle picks you up one escalator level below arrival hall, and transports you across the walkway to the adjoining airport hotel.

No , not like many other major cities. Just grab a coupon taxi and go door to door to your Hotel. Think about staying in the Bukit Bintang area and read the reviews on this site and see what appeals. Have fun.

I wouldnt even make this a consideration in choosing a hotel even if this was offered. I would suggest find the best hotel and location for your particular budget.

Thanks for all the replies, just getting varied quotes for taxis ranging from 200rm to 100rm one way from faq section and travelling with 2 infants so starting to panic and not sure on the taxi voucher thing as never used the system and read lots of scare stories. Didn't want to start the holiday with a slanging match in the street with a taxi driver.

LOL, did you check out the FAQ on ++ drivers? As the FAQ on airport transfers FAQ Airport/City cost/options tripadvisor.com/Travel-g298570-s301/Kuala-Lu…

Use the taxi coupon system. So easy!

A taxi is door to door and will take about 40-60 minutes dependant on the traffic. The TAXI counter is clearly marked in the arrivals hall at both KLIA and LCCT terminals at KUL.

Walk up to the counter, if there is a queue it will be fast moving.

Tell the assistant where you want to go [hotel] and the type of taxi [budget or premier, or minivan]. They will tell you how much. Pay your fee by cash or card.

Fees are 75myr budget small compact vehicle, 105myr premier larger roomier vehicle or around 200 myr minivan 6am to midnight. All taxis charge a 50% surcharge on costs from midnight to 6am so costs will then be 105myr budget small compact vehicle, 150myr premier larger roomier vehicle or around 300 myr.

Most average travellers with 2 average or large suitcases and 2 carry-ons will need a premier taxis and it will cost them 105myr unless you are arriving after midnight.

The assistant will give you a receipt and a voucher. The voucher has a door number on it. Got out of that door.

As you come out of the door a person will ask for your voucher as you walk out the door, ask where you are going and call the next taxi over. Put your stuff and yourself into the taxi, confirm with the taxi driver where you are going, and off you go to your hotel!

See the FAQ Airport / city Costs / Options - - >

There are no additional costs only than a tip which is up to you. Do not get into a non-voucher taxi or use touts, they will rip you off, they are not licensed and do not have adequate taxi insurance. Prebooked cars, Limos or hotel cars will cost considerably more. There are many companies operating car services that will be a bit more expensive than the taxi.

Ive never had an issue with a coupon taxi. As TM says so easy to use. Pay upfront so no reason they can ask for more,

The issue with taxis is more to do with their reluctance to put the meter on and charge a fixed fare.

Because the airport is not in KL City but way out of the city, almost to another state.
