    I just want to do some little survey.
    As I plan to setup a budget hotel around the KL airport and rent out rooms to those who wanted fly the next day (as a cheaper accomodation to overnight and avoid long journey / rush to airport from city) at less than MYR80 per night (cheaper as compared to hotels in city).
    If you are staying in city while in KL, would you find a place to overnight near the airport during your last night here so you can easily go to airport?

    It depends how early the flight was. If it was say, before 10am and I didn't have the budget to take a taxi, I would definitely want to stay closer to the KL airport. As much as I love the 10RM Air Asia bus to the LCCT, it's a long drive!

    be realistic-VERY realistic.
    1. you wont find ANY cheap lease/hire on the airport compound. Its the govmt. etc.
    2. pretty close to LCCT-walkable, is already the TUNE of AirAsia-who else, Cheap enough-if you book it smartly.
    3. next best is the old Indian quarter around Kl-Sentral (former railway goods yards), which now has plenty of low-cost ho(s)tels and losmen etc. With the shortest transit with bus to LCC and rapid train to KLIA

    You may consider Concord Inn Kuala Lumpur which is just 3 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA. I stayed there once when i transit through KLIA.

    I'd probably only consider it for a flight that's too early for the AirAsia bus, and later than say 3am (otherwise I'd just stay awake). Then again, I'm a pretty hardcore cost cutter on hotel bills, and I really like the hawker food in central KL
    Maybe for a couple on a short break it makes a lot more sense.
    As a poster above points out, Tune hotels are a pretty serious competitor for the LCCT; people are likely to think of them first even if they're not flying AirAsia.
