“no wonder I couldn't find an email address!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I wanted to email the hotel before we arrived, but 3 days beforehand could not find any email address - we got to the hotel to find it had changed names (1 Jan 13). It's now known as Sama-Sama.... Lovely set up, Pacific Club Room registration was on floor 9 and views were expansive - good room, great bed/mattress etc. The only draw back was that the evening complimentary drinks and canapes don't start til 7 (til 9), so hungry travellers have to have dinner first! Wine downstairs is terribly expensive (like so many places in Asia) with not much choice. Lounge drinks etc. were lovely, with many canapes etc. to choose from - right up there with Shangri La, Intercontinental lounges.

Breakfast was very good, with excellent staff. The outstanding feature of this property is the fact that you can get a free buggy ride from the foyer right to the main departure concourse of KL International Airport - very civilised! The airport connects you to the departure lounges by high speed train - why don't we have this in Australia??

Would definitely stay at Sama-Sama again.

Room Tip: Get a Pacific Room - makes all the difference!

This hotel has just renamed itself as Sama Sama Hotel. We stayed in a family room for a overnight bit of luxury, we had a recently renovated room with a king and 2 singles. I was a bit disappointed in the TV selection available but they did have free movies as a option, so that made up for it.
We transferred from the LCCT, which cost RM100 ( that's pretty expensive in Malaysian terms but had no choice as that's what they charge from the taxi counter for a mini bus)
I discovered on check out that the hotel has a shuttle for RM10 per person to and from the LCCT
The food at the hotel was quite pricey, so we opted to take a golf buggy ride to the airport for dinner, all the usual fast food outlets, food hall, convience stores and ATM's. So everything there that you need for a overnight stay

Dear Philipstravel,

Thank you for staying with us. Once our rooms renovation is completed by mid April we will also be upgrading our channels with more variety. Aplogies that you found that our restaurant are expensive but rest assured that our pricing are in line with other 5 star properties in Kuala Lumpur. Our shuttle service to the LCCT have fix time and based on reservation in advance. The transport service are minimum charges for mini bus as in the airport vicinity taxi are not allowed other than the airport taxis for the airport where ticket can be bought only at the airport counter at the arrival hall. This are rules and regulations from the airport authorities, Only drop off is allowed at the airport. Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are any other enquiries. Thank you

This hotel has now been renamed as Sama-Sama Hotel (they use new name for signs in airport!)

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a stopover from New Zealand to London and have to say it was wonderful.

We arrived around 10pm local time and when you exit the lift on the correct floor you see a sign straight away for the hotel (under new name) for an airport buggy to take you to the hotel. if you want to walk it, its about 10-15mins, but the buggy was quite fun! (the intercom doesn't work to call a buggy, but they come often).

Once arrived, the staff were wonderful, taking care of luggage from the word go. There was even a pianist in the lounge bar that evening which was lovely.

The room was newly decorated (still smelt of paint) and very stylish. It was a good size with bed, desk and sofa as well as a good sized bathroom. One of the things I was very impressed with was the power source on the desk - takes practically all kinds of plugs.
The lights are controlled by a button system as you enter and the drapes are also controlled this way with a similar system by the window. (The only exception is one small light by the sofa area - this is switched off by pressing the light inward - took a little while to figure out!)

Would recommend this hotel for ease of access, friendly and helpful staff as well as a touch of luxury to help break up a long journey.

It is true that you can use the air-side hotel at Kuala Lumpur International airport, but sometimes you want to be able to get out, and the Pan Pacific is a great way to do that and still stay within minutes of the check in desks.

The check in was efficient with our room waiting for us. This time it was a triple share and the roll away bed was waiting in the spacious room.

I do normally grant a five star rating, and it was one item that I have never encountered before that made me change my mind and give the extra star. Room wise, everything was spot on for a comfortable nights sleep, but just after midnight a load voice came into the room via a speaker in the ceiling, a fire alarm message. Normally you might moan and groan about the disturbance, but for me it was the reassurance that their safety systems were not only working, but actually woke me up and would have saved my life.

The all clear came up shortly after, but at least I am here to tell the tale.

Good job done by the staff.

This was formerly known as the Pan Pacific Kuala Lumpur International Airport Hotel. The hotel is very conveniently located for a brief stopover in KL. A buggy will transfer you between the hotel and airport. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation. The renovated rooms are spacious and modern. Even the older rooms were quite nice when I stayed there a couple of years ago.

Room Tip: The rooms are currently undergoing renovations so ask for a renovated room.

We had booked a standard double and were upgraded to the Pacific club room, which was a fantastic surprise. The room was in great condition, large, comfortable and clean. They served "cocktail foods" at the pacific club lounge, which were sufficient if you only want a small meal. We got there in the evening and did not need to buy dinner. The gym, pool and tennis courts looked impressive but we didn't get a chance to use these facilities. The breakfast was very good - there was a huge spread, however, some things weren't that fresh, quantity over quality perhaps. All in all great place to stay only if you're in transit.

We stayed for the second time at the Pan Pac in November. It is very conveniently located near the airport for a stay over. Our room was large and well decorated. The airconditioning worked well and we were very comfortable. We required little service, but reception staff were friendly and remained in the background. We will stay here again.
