Breaking our journey to Sydney, we decided to treat ourselves to a night at the airport. We checked in at 9.00am and quite expected to have to wait for a room to be available, but were delighted when we were given an upgrade. We spent a relaxing day and night before our next flight. A big thank you to all the friendly staff at the Sama Sama.

Easy check-in at the baggage collection point, whisked off to the hotel by the friendly buggy driver. Straight up to our room, no problems whatsoever. The room was newly renovated and comfortable enough after a long flight from Sydney. The air conditioning was a little bit noisy but other than that, our stay overnight was comfortable. The buffet breakfast was great. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would defintely stay here again.

Key message: This is NOT a 5* hotel.

We stayed at this hotel prior to a late evening flight from KLIA in late January. The plus point are the obvious benefit of being connected to the airport. There is a buggy service that runs 24hours that uses the interconnecting sky corridor. Newly renovated rooms are generally modern and good, with good lighting, air conditioning and powerful shower. Breakfast buffet is excellent. Free printing of boarding pass.

Refurb' work was being carried out during my stay. Lots of noise so beware if you are booking at this time.

There are lots of negatives that I feel prevent this hotel being a true 5* hotel. Service is poor, including unhelpful and discourteous check in. Twin beds are extremely narrow. Auto Mini-Bar didn't function, toilet seat was broken, shower door leaked, no bed-side light switch, TV reception and Wi-Fi internet poor and quite slow. Hotel feels sparse and poorly laid out, including a very long walk through an ugly and indecorous route to get to the pool and gym. Steam room isn't impressive, and gym is 'okay'. Lobby bar lacks any character, restaurant options are paltry, facilities and entertainment are somewhat drab.

I struggle to see the glory described in previous reviews. Maybe the hotel was better under previous brand "pan pacific". Sama Sama doesn't impress.

Located conveniently adjacent to KLIA, we have stayed at this hotel a number of times, both before it's name and management change, and afterwards. All the changes occurred seamlessly to the public early January 2013 and the high level of customer service and professionalism has been maintained.

The staff are warm and friendly and present as a close family welcoming you to their home.

The lobby is grand and impressive. From the lobby area there is an entrance to the main restaurant which is one of the finest buffet experiences to be enjoyed with a large range of asian and non-asian foods. A relaxing sitting area / piano bar outside the restaurant and opposite the check-in lobby is another place to enjoy drinks and food.

Rooms are extremely well appointed, clean and well maintained.

Arriving into KLIA on an international flight, there is a check-in counter for the hotel after immigration and before baggage collection. This means all the admin for check-in and key collection can be completed while waiting for the baggage to hit the carousel! Once you have your baggage, you can proceed to the point where the little buggy will pick you and your baggage up and whisk you quickly to the hotel lobby. As you already have your key from the earlier check-in, you just go straight to your room, quickly followed by your baggage which has been magically transferred from the buggy to a trolley and delivered by a porter. The buggy is available 24/7.

The hotel is about a 20 minute taxi ride from the KL Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) which is on the otherside of the airfield, for any 'Air Asia' flights. This distance and time needs to be factored into your plans if transferring from LCCT to KLIA or vice versa. In any event, even if you are only using 'Air Asia', it is well worth the taxi ride each way to enjoy the Sama Sama Hotel experience.

Sama Sama is not only a great hotel for a short stay stop over, but is also a great 'out of town' base from which to explore the city of Kuala Lumpur which can be accessed easily via KLIA Ekspres, the premium non-stop high-speed train service that connects KLIA and the Kuala Lumpur city centre.

Sama Sama is our hotel of choice for Kuala Lumpur and we will be back!

I stayed here for the third time in a month and was proudly told that I would be checked in on the 9th(?) floor. I obviously thought I had been upgraded - no such luck - the room, although ok, was exactly the same as on the two previous stays.
After an evening of vastly overpriced food and drink, to the accompaniment of drunken Japanese businessmen drinking until they vomited, I went to bed.
My real problem was at check out when I queried the bill which was considerably higher than the previous times I had stayed. The reason given was that I had not used the on-line booking system - the reason for this was that I had tried to book too early and the dates were not in the system. I didn't know this so I had e-mailed the hotel and a very helpful person at the other end offered to make me the booking "at the Internet rate".
When I pointed this out to the reception staff at Sama Sama I was met with an indifference bordering on contempt. I asked them to look into it and assumed that was what was happening. I sat there for about 15 minutes before I decided to query what was happening and was told in a very cold fashion that "we have already told you what the charge is" - and that was it!! I had a flight to catch and I didn't see the point of arguing with staff who were treating me like something they had trodden in so I left.
I would advise anyone staying here to double check the rate they are going to pay and to avoid their special 9th floor check in - unless you enjoy being made to feel small.

Dear SueBaz0,

It was a pleasure to have you as our guest during your last visit to Sama-Sama Kuala Lumpur International Airport. We the management are anxious to know what transpired with the booking indifference. As for 9th floor Premier floor services experience differences are that breakfast at the Premier Lounge is inclusive with the room rate and cocktail hour in the evening with unlimited food & beverages. Also extended check in & check out at the lounge itself without waiting in line at the main counter. And other services included for meetings. Please do contact me for I am able give you details on your query on rates variances. Our sincere apologies on your experience with our associate at the checkout counter and rest assured that management will take a keen interest by seeing improvement in this area of guest contact.

We are committed to you, our valued customers, and are taking immediate corrective steps to regain your confidence in us. Nothing is more important than regaining your trust and all of us here hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you again soon and provide you the positive Hotel Experience you have come to expect from us. Thank you
