The real key is internet booking early, really low cost then.

Much better prices than any of the options at or near the
International terminal at KUL, and the LCCT is a pain to get to for an early flight.

Thanks for the tip,

Not meant as an ad at all, simply an alert.

With over 6 hours recently in Kuala Lumpur before an overnight flight to Australia I tried out the Tune Hotel at the LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal, what a sad name for a terminal). Note this is for Air Asia
flights and not MAS or other larger regular airlines. Terminal name
says it all:-)

Sort of Japanese style with small rooms but very well kitted out and
with excellent showers. Tune offer great options for birders,
particularly if you can book in advance. Room rates are incredibly low and while the ‘extra’s’ are a further charge, just like a budget airline, they are brilliant value with prices starting from as low as Malaysian Ringitt 8 through to 80, Roughly $2.00 to $25.00!

Currently in KUL, Kota Kinabalu, Penang and Kuching, more are planned.

Tune Hotels,
