I checked in here with my partner and daughter after our flight from Bali as we had an 11 hour layover in KL before our onward flight back to the UK. The tariff is very reasonable, cheaper than an airport lounge, and you get a bed and ensuite facilities to use. Bottled water and tea/coffee are also supplied in the...

Considering the price just to stay here for 12 hours (that was the limit unless you pay extra), I was put off by how dark and dank the rooms were. The front desk service was friendly enough but the room was small and windowless. Again, more than sufficient to await your next flight, but not for the price. It came...

My 2nd stay after many years. Worth the money spent & service enjoyed more than promised on net. Checkin to checkout all positive experience during my short stay of 7hrs from 11pm. Early morning hot bath kick started my another day. Instead of hanging around in airport overnight or sleeping on bench it is indeed worth hit the cousy bed....

It's a very dirty lounge ever I seen. Food quality very low grade. Staff behavior very very bad. Even I can't drink water. Water was bad smell and glass also dirty. They supplied all non hygienic food and drinks.

Just what we needed for our overnight stay. We opted to use the hotels buggy and within five minutes we were in the hotels lobby. Our room was large with a huge bed. The staff were very friendly and eager to make sure our stay went well. There was no noise from the airport and we caught up with sleep....

A word to travellers. This is a big airport. Lots of walking so give yourself time to get to your gates. Restaurant options are disappointing. Duty free is very overpriced. Airport cleanliness is fair, however tge airvents in the ceilings are manky!!,Staff are both helpful and friendly.

Rooms are clean and quiet. Just the basics but everything you need for a layover, especially if it's half a day or too many hours to hang in the airport. Small so I wouldn't like to be there too long and not cheap. Definitely better than hanging around the airport.

Not bad for the price and considering it is in the actual airport, and airside, is convenient. Clean enough but bed is hard as doors are paper thin so it feels like you're sleeping in the corridor. If you can get a room outside in the main Sama Sama then definitely do that.

Dear Chejai, Thank you for taking your time to review our hotel. It is with regret to note the less than expected experiences during your last stay with us. We have installed "mattress topper" previously in an effort to make the bed more comfortable, and will review this area further based on your recent experience. Please accept my apologies for...

Stayed here for 7hrs between flights and were very glad of the sleep and the shower. The room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke on arrival, we assumed from the previous guest although the lady at reception said it was the smoking room on the floor below. Beds are comfy, but I'm not convinced the sheets had been changed from the...

We did not stay very long just overnight but this was a great way to sleep for a layover. I would do this again as it is connected to the airport and was convenient. There is a golf cart form a point ro drive you over as it is a bit of a walk. There are 2 Sama hotels we...
