We (4 of us from my family) visited Bangkok last September flying by Malaysian Airlines and obviously we had to transit in Kuala Lumpur. The duration at KL was 6 hours from 6.00 am. Much ahead of our travel, I had searched for an airport transit hotel and found Airside Transit Hotel which was well within the airport, which we were exactly looking for.
I sent an email and they confirmed a suite with extra beds at a very cheap rate (RNG 230+). We landed on time and located the hotel using the guidance mail sent by the hotel and checked-in to a spacious suite overlooking the runway. My children could not believe what they were seeing. 747s, 767s, 737s, 320s, 340s...... landing and taking off very frequently. There was a fitness center too. Room had coffee maker and excellent bathroom. We had a nice sleep for about 3 hours and started roaming in the airport using the transit trains and did a mini-shopping.
The check-in and check-out process was rapid and courteous. My children now are asking me "when are we visiting Airside Transit Hotel in KL again?'. Really, such a memorable stay it was and I strongly recommend!!!
