Located only 15 min drive from Kuala Lumpur LCCT terminal, youniQ seems to be the best option for those in need of a one night sleepover, without a long (+1hr) journey to KL Center. It has a wonderful, funky design; comfortable rooms; and cheap airport transfer. There are zero food options nearby, so - if you book - remember to eat at the airport.
However - I would strongly discourage you from staying in youniQ until they sort their management / safety issues.
We were woken up in the middle of the night by ringing fire alarm. In pajamas, we ran to the fire escape, only to find out that the exit at ground floor is... SECURELY LOCKED. On to second fire escape - same story (see photos). Finally, through the back corridor completely overloaded with some luggage, we got to the lobby.
There the receptionist lied to us that fire escape exit is in fact open.
The cause of the fire alarm was that, supposedly, some lit a cigarette in his room, which then led to evacuation of the whole hotel. The crew was unable to disable the alarm, which went off a couple more times within next hour.
We asked for a refund in the morning - were offered half.
In my view, locking the fire escape doors is a serious safety breach. Those regulations exist for a reason. Don't go there until they fix it.
