As a transit hotel, I would have expected this hotel to have been somewhat quieter. Although the room offered all the usual amenities, the bed was extremely uncomfortable. The overall feeling is that the overnight stay was wasted. I should have opted to continue my journey.

Sama-Sama Express transit hotel near Gate C5 at KLIA . is a comfortable way to spend a few hours between flights when transiting Kuala Lumpur. Rooms are quite small, but have everything for a short stay, including shower, towels, and a toothbrush kit. Also has flat screen TV with a few local channels and a coffee and tea maker. Bed is comfortable enough. My only complaint was that I couldn't find out how to control the Air-conditioning, and it a bit cold.

Price is about RM250 for 6 hours. Time is extendable in 1 hour blocks.

They do have a dining room there for breakfast, but would recommend eating at one of the main places in the main concourse area.

It was perfect for a 5 hour layover. I was not keeping well while traveling and needed a place to rest before my next flight. This was ideal.
Three of us stayed in one room, so it was fairly good value for money. The restroom was spacious and very well maintained. It was also handicap and baby friendly (at least the room I got, not sure if every restroom has such features)
They also give you a wake up call so you can rest without worrying about the next flight.
The negatives:
Walls seemed thin and it tended to get noisy as people walked in the corridors.
The restaurant there did not have good vegetarian options.

Just had a four hour break in the hotel. You can stay up to 6 hours. It was clean and spacious enough and it sure beats sleeping on an airport chair between flights. The airport is empty late at night and everything is closed so there is absolutely nothing to do. The hotel was easy enough to find and the checking quite quick. After 13 hours on a plane crisp clean sheets and a hot shower was worth every cent. Would definitely do this again! Bonus you don't have to go through customs the hotel is contained inside.

Room Tip: Ground floor is quickest and easiest.

This is the perfect hotel at the airport. Clean and comfortable. Good service and friendly people. Location is top notch. If you have to stay a day or a few hours then consider this place. There is hardly any other choice :)

Perfect for a transit and a gooc sleep. Well located. Good breaky. And big screen in lobby for the games! New, clean and efficient. I recommend it. Good value for price. Showers only or showers and breaky available for short transiters. Great deal.
