Sama-Sama Express KL International Airport

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Stayed at Sama-Sama Express for the first time last Friday, having arrived on the last flight from Penang to KL. Had to catch the KL-London the following morning. Did not want to stay in a hotel outside KLIA. Neither did I want to sleep on the benches scattered in the KLIA satellite terminal. The room size reminded me of budget hotel rooms, only slightly bigger. There was no window. But I did not feel claustrophobic, though some people might. The room including the toilet was clean. There was a flat-screen TV which had a few satellite channels, a distraction for someone who desperately wants to sleep but hooked on watching good TV programmes. There was an electric kettle and sachets of coffee, tea, milk and sugar. Toothbrush and shaving kits were also provided. Though slightly pricey for the allocated time of 6 hours, it served me well in that I had a private and clean space to rest before embarking on a long plane journey. One small complain is the door that was not sound-proof. I could hear people opening and shutting their room doors throughout my waking hours. The bigger complain was the poor service when I tried to confirm my booking by phone. I had to phone three times before someone helpful addressed my concern. The girls who answered my calls previously could have resolved my query easily but instead chose to give me the run-around.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We were on a long trip to Australia via Europe from Lima with two small children so we appreciated the hotel was beside the gate we arrive at, and meant for essentials we could just go to the airport shops. The hotel seemed well established but our room was renovated or refreshed. The only issue was there was a dead cockroach in the hallway, but our room was clean, and the fact cockroach was dead suggested they were spraying something. The booking process was simple and service good.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a refreshed room

This is a great place to rest & revive during long stopovers. We had prebooked and the check-in process was quick and efficient. In a nut shell, friendly staff, clean decent sized rooms and good showers.KL airport has plenty of places to eat. Will use again during stopovers in KL.

Nearest place to get a bed when you have a longish stopover in KL. Step off the plane and into bed within minutes. Good service, nice rooms and quiet....which is essential to good sleeping. Will def use this one again!

It is either this hotel or the hard airport terminal chairs if you are looking for a place to nap during transit. Not having to cross immigration is a major plus but otherwise the rooms are small, very basic and exorbitantly priced!

We spent one night at this hotel. We were booked in through Malaysia Airlines. The hotel knew we were arriving so they sent a golf cart to pick us up inside the airport. Even if it was past 11 pm, the service was prompt and courteous. The room was modern and very comfortable. We briefly explored the facilities of the hotel: the pool has a wonderful ambience and the gym is very well equipped.
We did not have breakfast, but instead did some shopping at the boutique of the hotel. The prices were reasonable and the service impeccable.
At the right time we were driven back to the departure area.
Overall it was a great experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are well insulated against sound because of the proximity to the airport. We stayed in the...

It takes all the stress out of an overnight stopover to stay within the transit centre. No waiting at immigration at night and same in the morning. Just get there and go. Did not have breakfast. The rooms were brand new a good size, and overlooked the gates. No noise , sound-proofing was spot on. Staff were pleasant and helpful
