“good transit hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

This hotel is in an excellent position for short stopovers. The resturant in hotel was well priced and had good
meals. The only bad thing is the cost to open mini bar I would prefer my credit card swiped and just pay bill when checking out. There were plenty of electric buggies taking you between hotel and airport. All in all a good experience.

Due to its location this hotel is the best choice for layovers as it is connected to the KLIA passenger hall by air bridge. The grand foyer is majestic and gives you high expectations for a comfortable stay. The rooms did not disappoint with modern fittings and a very comfortable king sized bed. On the executive floor complimentary breakfast and snacks as well as express checkout are provided in the lounge. This hotel used to trade under a different name but the new owners have completely refurbished the rooms increasing the comfort levels considerably.

The hotel is excellent place for a short stopover in KLIA.
It is very close to the airport, the room quality is perfect, the room is big, the bathroom is clean and comfortable, the staff is polite.
If you want to go to Kuala Lumpur City Center (Petronas twin towers) for a short visit, take the KLIA Express, it takes 28 minutes, from the airport (KLIA) one-way ticket costs 35 ringgit, while the taxi is around 70-80 ringgit, and sometimes takes 70-80minutes!!

We broke our flight from Amsterdam to Brisbane with a stopover for 2 nights at this convenient Hotel right beside the KLIAirport. Since becoming the Sama-Sama it has been renovated. Now the Rooms are more colourful and inviting and still the same large size which makes for very good comfort.. We have stayed here a number of times as the Pan Pacific Hotel before. The number of Restaurants seem to have been reduced ,but the level of service still is great.

We were totally 'wowed' by this hotel. They sent a representative to meet us right outside the aircraft door. This is a first time for us and we travel quite a lot.
The representative escorted us straight to the hotel with a buggy ride from the airport. The room was modern and comfortable and the executive lounge was a great place to relax.
Breakfast was more than adequate and we would gladly recommend this hotel to our relatives and friends. Well done Sama-sama.

I stayed here (like most people it seems) for 1 night.

It is very good and is 5 mins walk (or 2 mins on a golf buggy) to get to the main terminal at KLIA. Hotel was hugely impressive. I was upgraded to the exec floor and given a free breakfast which was very welcome! Check in and out were rapid and the room was huge, very comfortable and exactly what you would like. Didn't get the chance to use the facilities really but all looked great.

Would definately recommend if needing a stay at the airport. All other hotels were not within walking distance of the airport.

Only snag is that after completing a customer feedback form I was emailed asking me to add my comments to trip advisor - a bit cheap and not needed from a quality hotel which is good and will get reviews saying so anyway.

Stopped off overnight on our way to Cambodia from Sydney. A really excellent choice, within spitting distance of the main international terminal at KL.. A very high standard of food and service. Our room had recently been refurbished and the beds were very comfy. Only gripe was that our air conditioning had to be on full blast all night, to keep the room temp at a reasonable level. The gym was awesome and our continental breakfast was delivered to our room at 4.15 am, as we had a 5 am transfer to the airport. The breakfast consisted of piping hot toast, four kinds of fruit, cornflakes and banana's. A great place to stay but make sure your air conditioning is up to the task!
