Morning flight can be a hassle to some people but if you have small children, it can escalate to a nightmare. We once missed our early morning flight and from that day, we tried to avoid early flights unless necessary.

But if we must travel early, then we normally booked a hotel that is within short distance to the airport. That is why I think The Everly Putrajaya is a hotel you might want to consider if you are looking for a transit hotel:

#1: Its location - only 20km away from KLIA
On-site airport hotels can be pricey so why not consider a hotel that is a little bit further but still a short distance away? Everly Putrajaya Hotel is just 25-mins drive to KLIA. In the morning with little traffic, you can reach the airport within just 20 mins. Be sure to call a taxi in advance or ask the hotel to book a taxi for you.

#2: Within walking distance to Alamanda Shopping Centre
Adjacent to the hotel, there is a decent shopping mall that you could bring your kids to. There are plenty of F&B outlets and establishment such as Parkson, Aeon Big and Cold Storage. The mall has plenty to offer to travellers waiting for the flight the next day, from dining, to fashion outlets and many more.

#3: Value for money transit hotel
While I like splurging on hotel stays if I am on stay-cation trips, I tend to look for value-for-money hotel when I am on transit stay. Why pay for more when you just need a bed to rest and shower to freshen up before your next trip? You can get a room for below RM200 per night if it is during off-season.

So with those reasons, we stayed at The Everly Putrajaya the night before we flew back to Bintulu during our last trip to KL. We booked a Deluxe Room at the Non-Smoking floor as shown in the photos below:

All Deluxe rooms are accorded with spacious twin beds, a lounge sofa, flat screen tv with satellite channels and work table

I love the fresh and vibrant look and feel of the hotel room. The feature and side wall is given a coat of pastel green paint to complement the carpet, with matching floral decor frames adorning the wall.

It gives me peace of mind to have an affordable transit place to spend the night before your early morning flight the next day. The hotel is new and modern, and the rooms are clean and decent (perhaps a bit crowded with two adults and two kids in the 25 square metres room). So, I highly recommend The Everly Putrajaya for travellers looking for a comfortable place to rest for the night.
