Before the pandemic hit, KLIA had become my preferred airport to have a short layover for some of my international flights. Despite Changi’s popularity in Singapore, I never really enjoyed having a transit there as everything felt so pricey in Singapore. On the other hand, Kuala Lumpur is three times cheaper, and the airport is big enough to people-watching even though it’s not exactly a shopping haven or any place that is effective to kill boredom while waiting for your next flight.
I can’t remember how many hotels around Sepang area where I spent a night or two in Kuala Lumpur for my flights. I wrote about Capsule by Container, which is currently known as CapsuleTransit Airport Hotel in KLIA2. I also had an article about Bary Inn Hotel for when I waited for my flight to Ho Chi Minh City with Vietnam Airlines.
Other than the hotels that I wrote about, I also stayed in some others long before I started this blog. I remember, once I stayed at Sri Langit Hotel, a hotel close to Kuala Lumpur National Airport with an aircraft concept in their rooms. It was quite a nice, not-so-pricey hotel to stay for a night.
And as mentioned the other day, I missed my flight to Jakarta from Kuala Lumpur that forced me to extend my stay in Malaysia for one more day. Since I was too lazy to even spend 50 MYR to leave the airport, I decided to find a room in one of the few airport hotels available around KLIA/KLIA2. And this time, I got a chance to stay at Tune Hotel KLIA Aeropolis.
