“Good budget hotel”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

Good budget hotel, small but simple and clean. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Too far away from downtown and airport, but there is a FREE shuttle bus to downtown at the back of 1Borneo shopping mall. Connected hudge shopping mall 1Borneo where you can get most of the stuffs you want.

Although room is quite small, but bed is very comfy. Services are very basic, you need to pay extra for airconditioning, wifi, towels, etc.

Hotel location is far from the city center. Transportation system is limited so at a very compromising time, you've got no other choice but to pay for an overly charged taxi service just to get to this hotel. But if you want to save, you can opt for an hourly free shuttle service offered by a nearby mall. However, it's a first come first served basis so most of the time, you'll have to fall in line and wait.

But nevertheless, we enjoyed this hotel at a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Take the free shuttle to and fro the city center.

If you complain the room size is too small, wait till you stay at Tune Hotel, LCCT, you will be relief to find that it is still ok as compared to LCCT. As in all Tune hotels, the bed is always very comfortable and clean, you just love it. The room is basic, you need to pay for the adds on like towels, air con, etc or else you bring your own towel, soap and shampoo. There"s no electric kettle or fridge, no cupboards too. The bathroom/toilet are clean. Do be careful not to put uncovered food on the table as it attracts ants. I love the ceiling fan. When I check in I paid for the internet charge for room use but was not able to connect at, as the reception cant be contacted by phone I need to bring my laptop to them to check, they find nothing room and was able to connect at the reception with the same password so they ask me to try again, still unseccessful imagine, I have to carried my laptop down to reception a total of 4 times finally I can and the hours wasted which I paid for, maybe it was just unfortunate may not be a rare case. The staff react fast they did send someone to my room to fix the problem.
As it is located at 1Borneo, you cant find nearby food stalls on foot, can only go to MacDonald the nearest for bfast. If your main intention is to go to islands, I recommend you to stay at city hotels as this hotel is too far away, it cost $50 by taxi from airport, the free shuttle bus to town may not be that convienent as you need to register and wait too. 1Borneo itself is a huge shopping complex with lots of fast food outlets, restuarants and Parkson and Giant supermarket. If you book this hotel during the promo period and book in advance you get the best value, there is also a car rental sevice next to the reception.

I cannot believe the reviews that say "Worst hotel i have ever stayed at", these are usually done by people who have not got their own way, or maybe one of the staff made a mistake. Tune KK is just a good cheap place where you will have no problems. I booked it 6 months ago, and the price was 25 Ringitts, but you can have a single room as low as 5 Ringits during sales booked well in advance. Even the walk in price is cheap, if you stay more than 2 days , it is best to buy the Towel/Shampoo package. All the rooms have a HUGE fans, no need for aircon !

It is important to understand that this hotel (unlike other Tunes i have stayed at) is 8-10 km from the centre of KK, 30 minutes, but there is a free shuttle bus that runs hourly in each direction.
I liked the novelty of staying in a hotel that was part of a shopping mall ! The entrance IS strange yes, but hardly worth mentioning really. Maybe there were some cracks, even ants, this is Borneo ! The most important things about a hotel, Tune provided, and did them well. Everything worked, reception good and helpful. Rooms cleaned daily.
Not a lot to say really,summing it up - NO PROBLEMS , long way from centre but with shuttle bus

Room Tip: I have stayed a few times, all room have been overlooking the main road, but they were all quiet. Ni...
