Have to admit to being a bit apprehensive when I received notice that the Pan Pac was changing its name to Sama Sama Hotel (translated as "You are Welcome" in Malay) - as far as I knew, this would be a Malaysian owned hotel and not part of an international chain but I have to say, if anything the rooms look better and the already good service has improved.
The refurbished rooms look great, especially like the 2 full length mirrors opposite the bed and the colours of the feature wall. Didn't watch any tv so can't comment on channels though i think it has the usual Vision 4 channels most Malaysian 5 star hotels have.
Unfortunately no bath (useful with a baby) but the bathroom was a decent size and shower was good. Bathroom had one of those magnifying mirrors, and hair dryer. Lovely thick towels and bathrobes.
The room is a bit expensive though, as we had to pay extra for an extra bed for our 5 year old, and it doesn't come with breakfast. But you get free buggy service right into the airport which is very handy (and very popular with the kids.)
They have a monopoly as there are no other hotels so handily connected to KLIA; hopefully the service remains good to make it worthwhile.More
