Positive value:
1. located in shopping mall and you can get most of the necessity.
2. safe deposit available
3. value for money

Negative value:
1. strict check in at 2pm
2. charges incurred for luggage storage
3. room is stuffy especially the one near the window. hardly to sleep at night as the aircond cold really really really slow. Was sweating.
4. lobby is far away
5. room is relatively small
6. no hotel parking and it cost RM6/entry/day - cheapest is free which is park and walk for 10 min.

I would recommend to stay in KK town where you can access everything easily and near to airport as well.

Hi There,

I am very pleased to read your appraisal of our, services and facilities and I know my team will be equally pleased to learn of your kind remarks.

Though I regret to hear some areas that had let you down, we hope to be given the opportunity to serve you better.

Our hotel operates on a limited service concept, parallel to a “pay as you use concept” customers are given the liberty to assemble their stay that they feel comfortable with.

We do not provide items such as wardrobe, mini bar, coffee and tea making facilities, extra pillows, extra beds, room service, etc. Air-conditioning, Television, and Wi-Fi are chargeable add-ons and towels are on rental basis only.

Our rates are comparable to other surrounding properties and many find this a bargain.

Please connect with us during your stay if we fell short in anything we have promise to deliver.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on Tripadvisor.

We certainly look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Thank you.

Warm Regards,
Sharon- Customer

I stayed for 3 nights in a double room in Aug 2012. I chose Tune due to my past experience at Penang and Kuching. The no-frill hotel provides comfy bed, pillow, good sleep is almost guaranteed for all.

Facilities in the room include hangers (no cupboard), safe deposit box, a small collapsible console, 2 bed side tables, big mirrors, bathroom with hair dryer. The bathrooms doesn't have locks and come with opague glass panel as door (a standard feature in Tune hotels which I have visited). The place is very clean.

Air con is provided for guests who buy the credits. Towel and toiletries are charged separately.

Its location provide easy access to eateries and shops within 1Borneo (a 7-11 store located next to the hotel counter and another convenient store located a few shops away from the back entrance to 1Borneo). Though it's not located within KK city, it's ok as long as you plan your trip out to the city properly.

Make use of the free shuttle between 1Borneo to the city (Warisan Square), Each way takes 20-25 min. It is advisable to get the shuttle bus coupon 15 min ahead of the scheduled time that you want from the concierge located on ground floor of 1Borneo North Atrium (Tune Hotel is at the South Atrium)/ sheltered bus stop outside Warisan Square, near Royal Sporting House, diagonally opposite Filipino Market. The 20-seater bus fills up quite fast. Shuttle schedule:
- 1Borneo: 9am-4pm, 6-10pm: hourly; Leaves punctually.
- Warisan Square: 9:30am-4:30pm, 6:30-9:30pm: hourly; arrive early, it doesn’t wait if it’s ahead of schedule.
For fasting, there is no bus at 6 and 6:30pm.

Room Tip: It's worthwhile considering taking room on level 1, as there is a corridor connecting the hotel...

I was there from July-20 to July-23, 2012. I got the low price promotion from official webside.
www.tunehotels.com. 1 double room, 4 nights, $53.49MYR, plus $20MYR for 24H Air Con.
Room was very clean & quire, big enough for 2 people. Although do not have any towel or show gel stuff at bath room, but you can bring your own. The bed was so so so comfortable, let me fall sleep so so fast & well. Down stairs was 1 Borneo Shopping Mall, every thing you need you can get at the mall. The mall offer free shottle bus to the city center, runs every hour. Don't want spend big money at fine restaurant? Don't worry, at B1F of Mall, have an " Apple Caf'e", they offer cheap & quality local food, for 1 person, average $5MYR. Must Try !

Room Tip: No any thing, just clean & nice comfortable bed.

Stayed here for 2 nights and we had good sleep before and after the trip to the National Park and Poring Hot Springs. Next to 1Borneo shopping mall which is convenient for us in term of time constraint to look for food and some sundries for our trip. Definitely for those looking of budget room but comfortable and clean place to stay.

Hi There,

Thank you very much for providing such a glowing report of your recent stay. I am very glad that you enjoyed your trip.

The Tune Hotels proposition appeals to a very broad set of customers and particularly targeted at the value-conscious corporate consumer which has become a growing segment of the market at recent times. It's perfect for people who just want a good price on a user pays basis.

Thank you for the review and we hope to have the sincere pleasure of welcoming you back soon

Warm Regards,
