If you’re looking for somewhere to stay close to Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2), the Tune Hotel might be perfect. Operated by the global Tune Hotels group, the company’s philosophy is to provide comfortable, safe, and affordable rooms in key locations.
Make sure you know what airport you need before booking. There are two independent sections of Kuala Lumpur International Airport – KLIA and KLIA2. Although there is good transportation between the two, they are two kilometres apart. KLIA2 replaced the Low Cost Carrier Terminal, or LCCT.
This is what you can expect from a stay at the handy Tune Hotel at KLIA2:
Comfortable rooms that offer a great night’s sleep
Whilst the Tune Hotel at KLIA2 has more than 380 rooms, the vast majority are double rooms. There are 304 double rooms, 76 twin rooms (with two single beds), 4 family rooms, which can accommodate up to four adults and two small children, and 8 quad rooms, which are suitable for up to four adults and one young child.
Each room has a private bathroom, with a powerful hot water shower. The strong jets of water will certainly wake you up in the morning! Mini toiletries, towels, and a hair dryer are also provided for complete convenience.
Whilst the rooms may not be the largest that you have ever slept in, they are well-furnished, impeccably clean, and have eye-catching décor and colour schemes.
All rooms have air-conditioning and ceiling fans to help keep you cool in the humid Malaysian climate. Beds are very comfortable, allowing you plenty of rest before (or after) your flight. Other room facilities include a table and chair, satellite TV, and an electronic safe.
The low prices are appealing, with a double or twin room costing around 179 MYR to 220 MYR (approximately 40.50 USD to 50 USD) per night. The exact price depends on the month of stay, how far in advance the booking was made, and whether you are staying during the week or on a weekend.
Surprisingly nice views
You may think that staying so close to an airport means that the only views you are likely to have are of buildings, planes, car parks, and roads. That’s not necessary the case at the Tune Hotel at KLIA2. You might be pleasantly surprised to find that views are of lush greenery. There are many trees close to the airport, and you might well forget where you are when you pull back the curtains and gaze outside.
Other hotel facilities for a pleasant stay
The bright reception area is open around the clock, and visitors coming back late at night can only enter the secure building with a swipe card.
There is an inviting lounge area where you can pass the time reading or chatting, and you can buy a selection of drinks, snacks, toiletries, and other items from the onsite convenience store. Open 24 hours of the day, it’s perfect for guests who have forgotten something or who get a touch of the late night munchies. Alternatively, grab a drink from the café and relax outdoors in the courtyard.
Free Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the hotel. You can also pay to use a computer in the lounge area.

Short walking distance to KLIA2 main terminal building and mall
An outdoor covered walkway connects the Tune Hotel at KLIA2 to the airport and the magnificent Gateway shopping mall. You can be in the airport and mall within ten minutes of leaving the hotel.
Shopaholics will be delighted with the dazzling array of shops within Gateway, with many big international names, such as Pandora, Nikon, Crocs, and Toys R Us, sitting alongside local brands. With stores devoted to fashion, footwear, electronics, accessories, beauty, books, and more, make sure you don’t get carried away and miss your flight! There is even a large supermarket within the modern complex.
There are many eateries as well, great for grabbing a bite before your flight or taking a breather whilst shopping. From fast food joints to more upmarket dining options, there are enough choices to suit almost any palate. Grab a typical Malay dish, such as mee goreng (fried noodles) or nasi goreng (fried rice), or enjoy international flavours.
Getting out and about
Excellent public transportation links make getting to and from KLIA2, and subsequently to and from the Tune Hotel at KLIA2, very easy.
The KLIA Express connects both airport terminals, with a journey time of around five minutes. The same train also runs to Kuala Lumpur City Centre, which is around 35 kilometres (22 miles) away. After arriving at Kuala Lumpur’s main train station, the large KL Sentral, you can then access other train lines, including commuter trains, and the efficient monorail.
The KL Transit train also connects both airport terminals and KL Sentral, but it has several stops along the way. This is ideal for people travelling to or from Bandar Tasik Selatan, Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, and Salak Tinggi.
Public buses also connect the airports and the city, and, although they take longer than the trains, tickets are cheaper. The transfer time between the city centre and airport is around one hour.
Taxis are another option, and you’ll have no problem finding one.
Stay at the Tune Hotel at KLIA2 for really handy access to the airport, comfortable rooms, and fantastic prices.
