Reviewed January 5, 2014

Beautifully decorated rooms, hotel has fabulous service and the buffet dinner is spectacular. Unfortunately the mini bar is locked and since we had two rooms, the cc was only booked to one room, we could't unlock the minbar for both rooms. The buggy service between the hotel and the airport is great, all you need to do is turn up and a buggy will transfer you, if there isn't one waiting it will only take about 1 min for one to arrive. As we were departing from LCCT the hotel has a shuttle bus but only departs every 2 hrs but they organised a car (a very nice car) to transport us for a reasonable fee (70 MR which is about 1.5 x taxi fare which was 43 MR from airport) but we had only a small amount of luggage, the LCCT is approx 20mins by car and 30 mins by shuttle whereas the KLIA is about 5 mins via walkway with buggies. This hotel is a lovely airport hotel.

My husband and I stayed for a night at the Sama-Sama at KL airport to break a long-haul flight from Europe to Australia. We'd stayed there a year before, when it was under different ownership and thought it convenient but rather tired. It has now changed hands and, while the building and the services are much the same, it has been refurbished, smartened up and now really deserves its five star status. There was everything one could want for a restful stay in between flights. Our room (on the 5th floor) had been freshly decorated in low-key good taste and was large and spotlessly clean, with a relaxing view of lawns and trees outside the window. The bed was comfortable, the sheets crisp and white, the bathroom stocked with a full range of amenities, including big fluffy towels, robes and slippers, and soundproofing had been upgraded so we did not hear airplane noise. The buggy service from Level 2 of the airport terminal has been retained, with a buggy every 5 minutes to whisk you from airport to hotel along an overhead connecting bridge. Check in was quick and effortless and staff handled our luggage for us from door to door. There were a couple of things that needed attention when we arrived in our room (the TV didn't work) and these were fixed very promptly and cheerfully. The room service menu was extensive, the meal came in less than 20 minutes and was quite nice. We had the buffet breakfast the next morning and that was equally good, with lovely fresh tropical fruit and a nice array of Western and yummy Malaysian and other Asian dishes. We highly recommend the hotel as a stopover option and will use it again next time we transit through KUL.

We have booked this hotel for 1 night as our flight arrived to Kuala Lumpur at night. However, we have found this hotel so gorgeous. Very clean room, luxurious furniture and relaxing atmosphere after a long flight. Reception was also very nice and professional, they have upgraded our room automatically without even asking as it was full. We definitely will recommend to friends.

We had the pleasure of staying here twice in the last month. We stayed one night on the way out to New Zealand in early December and then on Wed 2nd Jan on the return leg but this time after having spent three other nights in KL City Centre (Mandarin).
The Mandarin is supposedly the best in KL BUT I PREFERRED THE SAMA SAMA! It's location probably means you will only want to stay here is using the airport as it is out of town. But apart from location I found it perfect.
Helpful staff, excellent buffet breakfast (better than the Manarin). Great views of the airport but no noise. Buggy transfer from the terminal. You can check in at the baggage hall!
We stayed on the 9th Premier floor - so cant's comment on the more std rooms but I think this was worth the extra. These rooms also seem to always include breakfast from which you can have fresh things prepared in the 9th floor lounge or go down to the main restaurant which has an even wider choice.
Also had dinner in the restaurant on both stays. You can have an evening buffet or a la carte. The buffet has a very wide choice of dishes and not the same every night.
By only slight criticism is that we had asked for adjoining room (2 for us + 2 for kids). We were told that they don't have adjoining rooms. However that is not quite correct as on the return visit we were given two corner rooms which have a shared hallway door so this option does kind of give this facility - management note if adjoining rooms are requested this is a good option.
If you need someplace to stay near the airport then look no further!

Room Tip: 9th floor is premier floor. Recommend runway views as you will not be annoyed by noise

Stayed one night before morning flight. One of the best airport hotels I have stayed in.

We had a buffet dinner at the Degrees restaurant. Great food selection both hot and cold. A la carte menu offered good choice too.

Golf buggy picked us up as we were walking from the airport towards hotel. Fantastically well stocked convenience store in the hotel lobby stocking everything you might need, including pharmaceuticals.

Would definitely recommend as an airport hotel. Worth remembering as well that the KLIA express train from the airport takes you to KL centre in less than 30 minutes.

We stayed one night at Sama-Sama as we needed a place near the airport for our early morning flight and what a delight it was. Starting with the very well appointed rooms, everything automated modern and new right down to the window shades! Bathrooms were also nicely tiled with welcoming lighting. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food is the restaurant was delicious. Then we sunk into our very comfortable bed with wonderful sheets. Even my four year old noticed. "Mommy, I like these covers!!" The best part is after a speedy express check out in the AM, a buggy cart was loaded with our baggage and we were driven through some interior hallways directly beneath the airline check in counter near the elevator. I would highly recommend this hotel. Skip the traffic from KL and definitely stay here!
