Sama Sama Express is a small hotel for layover passengers to rest, take a shower and freshen up. The rooms are basic without windows but are comfortable and have things like coffee maker, shower with towels and other stuff. Recommended for people with layovers - however some windows and more food choices can help the hotel.

Clean simple rooms, nice staff and you can't be the location. I was out my door and at my gate in minute. Perfect if you have a long layover at KL. Pricing is in four hour blocks too! Always cook to have a view of an active taxiway, but no noise at all.

Took their 6-hr day package for 65$ approx. Honestly, this is the only option airside- the other one (Snooze) I think is closed. If you have a visa, better check into the Sama-Sama hotel next to the terminal. The room & the bed was tiny- not even big enough to stretch my legs. I could not work out the light...

Being able to have a shower and a great sleep before flying on was fantastic. Rooms had everything we needed, very clean and beds were comfortable. Easy and quick booking in with very helpful counter staff.

We had a 10 hour layover at KLIA airport and decided to book this hotel to get a quick nap and shower. The room is decent, the staff are not very polite but given the high price we definitely expect more.

Absolutely terrible place!!! Don't bother staying at this hotel. I checked in expecting to pay £98 for a 12 hour stop over... it ended up costing £158 due to taxes! The lady at the desk was rude and very unhelpful. Our room was smelly and had no window! Breakfast was vile!!!! It was freezing cold and just horrible. Never ever...

We were given this free by Malaysia airlines as they cancelled a connecting flight and had 8 hours to kill at KL. Even though it was free I still feel hard done by because it was so awful. Dark corridors, tired room, cold shower. Free food was warm at best. The funniest thing is that we had been hoping it...

We stopped here when Malaysian air changed our flights from NZ to UK. We had a day time room with one meal included. Firstly I have to say the the hotel is ideally situated for any stop over It is right in the center of the airport without having to navigate through the passport control or immigration. Next to Gate...

Stayed there for 9 hours because we had longer stopover and we couldn't go out of the airport. I'm glad that we had opportunity to stay in transit area hotel. No need to sleep at the airport on the chairs. Rooms could be little bit more cleaner coz they are so small so their should not be much to clean....

This was our first experience of a transit stopover and we were quite impressed. Sama Sama was easily located within the terminal. Booking in was quick and easy. We were in our room within 20 minutes of getting off the plane. The overnighter serv ed its purpose very well . The reception area is spartan but clean.This stay was overnight...
