Layover at Plaza Premium Lounge Gateway@KLIA2

July 22nd, 2019 · 2 Surrendered

After we had our kaiten sushi at the Kansai International Airport, we boarded out flight back to Kuala Lumpur. Since we arrived at almost midnight, we decided to stay a night to get a good rest and freshen up before our next leg of flight back to Kuching in 12 hours.

We took the 12-hour package(room+meal) of Plaza Premium Lounge Gateway@KLIA2. It wasn’t cheap though. It was about RM220(it’s early booking saver rate from Agoda some more) for a room and meal for 2 pax. However, after flying in a packed flight for so many hours and need to wait 12 hours for the next flight home, that’s the best we can get. At least we had our meals(supper+breakfast) sorted and enjoyed our privacy rather than staying in the capsule hotel at the airport.


Our room came with a double decker bed. I dislike the bed especially when you need to climb up. The stairs isn’t user friendly at all. It’s quite dangerous for short people and with bad balance like me. It’s designed in such a way that the angle is 90 degree and there’s no handrail to hold. The only support you can get is pulling yourself up to the bed with the bar at side of the bed(which is quite far away) and the mattress cover. I almost fell when I got down from the bed because of the angle with no handrail to support, and the last step were blocked by the mattress which made it impossible to properly position your feet.

There isn’t window so it’s pitch dark if you switch off all the lights. There’s light at the wall next to each bed if you need to use it. The room is not soundproof though. The toilet and the bathroom are separated and spacious enough. All amenities are provided. The air-conditioning unit is centralized.

The food served was quite basic but better than nothing especially when you arrive at almost midnight, you are dead hungry.

Overall, it was an OK stay albeit the bad design of the bed. Whether I will stay here again? Maybe… If I really need to stay overnight at KLIA2. At least it’s convenient and with en-suite. There’s another airport hotel on the same floor which is similar, rate is similar too, I might try this instead depending on the rate. Capsule hotel is definitely a no-go for me.

    When you mentioned about the double decker bed, it reminded me of my time in Taipei. My accommodation also consisted of a double decker bed with no windows as well. And I was worried of knocking something to the floor, especially my phone and camera. =/

    Ciana, it’s annoying indeed.
