“Tune Hotel KK the best”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

This is my 2nd time here.... price still the best in town.... located in 1Borneo, bit far from town center but when u rent a car, distance wasn't an issue anymore :)

Always be my 1st choice hotel when I'm thinking of visit Kota Kinabalu....

Room Tip: ask for room with window, better 3G coverage :)

Comfortable and clean with all the basic facilities that you need. You just pay for what you need. The staff are polite and friendly. Didn't really need the air-cond as the fan is cool enough.
Very near UMS. Traffic is only congested towards KK in the morning hour rush.

If I had realized how far it was from the town center, I would not have stayed there. It was my 2nd choice since my 1st choice was already booked. It should not have been my 2nd choice but I was hurried and felt like I had to make a decision. There is a shuttle bus from the hotel to the town center and back. I had to take taxis to the town center because I had to get there before the shuttle started. I had booked through Expedia so towels were included. That was a first, towels being extra!!! If I were to go back, would not stay there just because of the distance from the town center.

Dear Guest,

Thanks for the review.

Our hotel is actually located approximately 20 minutes from the city, and and you could actually take a free shuttle from 1 Borneo Hypermall. It's a faster and convenient.

We are fortunate to have a great Uptown location, Tune Hotels- 1Borneo, is situated in the largest shopping and lifestyle mall in east Malaysia. And is also en-route to major Kota Kinabalu eco-attractions, including Kinabalu Park - World Heritage Site and home of Mount Kinabalu, South-East Asia’s highest peak.

Please check out our packages form our website, hopefully we have you plan another trip back at Tune Hotels 1 Borneo KK.

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

Warm Regards,
Sharon- Customer Care Manager

Hi There,

Thank you for your review of Tune Hotels 1 Borneo, Kota Kinabalu.

There is a free shuttle service offered by the mall as early as 9.00am to 9.00pm to the city centre that departs every half hour daily. Am sure this would complement any guest stay and also an added travel convenience.

My apologies about the smell, I hope this would not be the case in your next visit. And please connect with me directly at any point for anything further.

Again, we are sorry that we missed the mark on your stay and we truly hope for the opportunity to provide you with a stay that exceeds your expectations in the future.

Warm Regards,
Sharon-Customer Care Manager

Very comfortable 5 star hotel bed with basic facilities in an very affordable price.
Even if you need top up Aircond facility, it's based on hours you use, not by day.
So if you stay 3 nights, usually 48 hrs aircond is sufficient.
Bear in mind there won't be any cup or kettle for making drinks.
Drinking water is only available at lobby.

A little far from the town centre. I have hired a private vehicle to travel around so it was not much of a hassle for me, with the GPS system guiding me all the way. The front desk staffs were excellent and fine tuned to shine the Tune. Parking was rather expensive, RM 8/- per day for 24 hrs 1000-1000hrs daily. Tune is situated inside the huge 1Borneo Hypermall so its not a hassle to go shopping. Just walk out of your room and you are in the Hypermall. Choices of food rangers from Malay, Chinese, Indian, mamak and also from other regions. Even Kopi Tiam style food outlet is located in between the posh food outlets. Rooms were excellent (no comment).

Room Tip: 3rd floor view rooms are nicer, facing Jalan Sulaman)
