This thread is a place to share tips and recommendations for stopovers at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) in Malaysia. You can discuss things like:
  • How to get from the airport to the city
  • Things to do (both near the airport and in the city)
  • Where to stay/hotel recommendations (both near the airport and in the city)
  • Your favourite KUL airport lounges
  • Airport facilities such as luggage storage and showers
  • Any other destination-specific tips or "hidden gems" you've discovered that could be useful for someone stopping over

Do you have a great tip that other travellers might find useful when stopping over in Kuala Lumpur? Add your suggestions to this thread, and your advice could make it into an AFF Stopover Guide article!

My main tip is that the Malaysia Airlines Golden lounge in the Satellite terminal is really difficult to find. My main tip is that it is upstairs on the mezzanine level, just above where the Aerotram arrives from terminal 2... If you find the Aerotram stop, look up, and make your way there.

We had Air Asia flights with a short stopover. We opted for the Tunes hotel for the convenience. It was certainly a short walk & check-in was fine and the room comfortable enough for a short stay. As with many of this style of airport hotel things can be noisy with people moving around all the time.
On another visit we stayed in the city at Berjaya Times Square-very easy to get to, great views of Petronas Towers and a good club lounge. At the time of our stay it was well maintained but current reviews suggest there may no be better options in this price range

Always the Traders for us. Great hotel in a great location. The views of the Petronas Towers is stunning and has a pretty decent club lounge
