KL Transit hotel - anyone used it?

    Recommended Posts

    We'll be travelling with 3 young kids - is it suitable for their ages? Not much info online as to room type etc... just wondering what people's experiences are and whether we'd fit in one/ two rooms.

     

    Thanks in advance! :)

    I used that hotel back in 2001 with a friend, we had two single beds in the room, I would have called them doubles, we stayed over night between flights and found it great. they had 24 hour room service, all suitable for kids and a great buffet breakfast. Couldnt hear a single noise outside the room and we had our room facing the airport so it is very sound proof. its connected to the airport so no cab ride etc. We were very happy with it, not sure of the other facilities with the hotel as we arrived late and were leaving early so just wanted to sleep and shower. check out the website www.lucylovesaustralia.com.au and it may have something on there, its a travel website with kids in mind and all tried and tested places and stuff to do with travel.

    Hope thats helpful

    Plus KL airport is in the middle of nowhere, an hour's drive from the city through countryside, so if you are only transiting then it is probably worth staying at the airport hotels.

    I don't think this is the Transit' hotel. The Transit hotel is within the airport building (far end of one of the Terminal buildings - can't remember the number) and is really just a set of rooms and suites with a concierge. I'm not sure they provide meals at all, but you are within walking/travelator distance of the airport restaurants anyway. The rooms are very well appointed with everything you would need including toothbrushes and toothpaste, and are so well insulated you wouldn't think you were at an airport - they are silent! Well worth the money and really made a difference to the stress of the long journey. We landed at 10 in the morning and had to be ready for boarding at 5pm - we had a lovely shower and a few hours sleep - luxury! I would certainly do that again if flying out that way.

    Yes, it's the basic rooms really, not the pan pacific. Works out to be about $170 for the 2 rooms and extra bed, which still worked out cheaper than getting flights going straight through - worth thinking about if anyone else is looking at prices at the moment xxx
