“Hotel attached to a Mall”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

I had nothing much to do back at Kota Kinabalu. It was a much well-deserved rest for me. I practically lived in a Mall while at Tune Hotels which was a nice thing. Check out the food courts of the mall. Watch movies until late at night.

The travel agency near the front desk of Tue Hotel is really accommodating.

Room Tip: Go for rooms looking out at the road to have a good view of outside.

the rooms i booked were very comfortable and clean, and it is very convenient as the hypermall is just besides, my family and i were very satisfied with the housekeeping. you can choose to eliminate those facilities you do not need and lowered the price, the rate of the rooms are very OKAY. only one thing, the hotel do not owned any car park, so customers have to find car park on their own and pay to authorised staffs which is RM6 per day.

Hi There,

Thank you for completing a TA Review on your recent visit.

Glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us and thank you very much for all your positive comments.

Our parking facilities are managed by 1 Borneo management, and another is the open air car park situated at the front of the hotel. Being a limited service hotel, we provide only the basics; bed and shower. Parking is not a service extension by Tune Hotels 1Borneo, as such charges apply.

We adopt a demand based pricing mechanism. Room rates fluctuate based on demand and room availability. You are more likely to find more promo room rates during off peak periods than during peak periods (public holidays, weekends, etc).

Thank you very much for choosing us and we greatly value your continuous support.

See you soon.

Warm Regards,
Sharon- Customer Care Manager

40 minutes away from the airport, a shopping mall, shopping is convenient, but do not have a lot of public transport. We are chartered the past, but you can arrange to go Kamiyama Travel. All items are an additional charge, book a room in advance is more favorable. $ 50 a night is very good value!Go to other parts of the trip, I will try to Tune Hotel

Do book your room well in advance; that would give you big discounted room rate; ask for a room with a window if you have opted out for air conditioning. If you choose a hotel by the high way, try to find a room a little far away from the main road.

Ask for tours offered by the hotel if they are available.

The hotel is good in terms of shopping facilities ( 1 Borneo, I was told, is the biggest shopping centre in East Malaysia) and transport service ( there is a free shuttle bus service from the hotel to city centre)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window/ wondows when checking in. As well, make a request for a room away from...

location inside mall is good, but not much public transport. We rented a car, so it was easier for us to travel around. The room itself is value for money and good condition and very comfortable to sleep.

The softness of the bed is very important for a traveler who need a charge after travel around at the trip, and Tune hotels has provided a clean, soft bed which can compare to those 4 or 5 stars hotel! The cleanliness of toilet also made me satisfied. Although the room is quite small but for travelers who do not stay long in the hotel, it can be one of the good choice,.

Room Tip: Rooms with window can view for the sun rise
