This is the fourth of the Tune franchise I've stayed at. Having had a great time at the Kuching branch prior to this, I was appalled at the KK "hotel". What the other reviewers say about the location is true - it's far from town, at a horrid shopping mall with no soul. The shuttle from 1Borneo to the city (provided by the mall) takes about 30 minutes to get to the city. Both Tune and Novotel try to hide the distance issue on their respective website. If you want to shop and do nothing else, perhaps it is a good spot (but why bother?). The room itself was shabby. The bed and bedding were very comfortable, but the walls had cracks and gaps where plaster had fallen out, the light fixtures next to the bed were hanging off their hinges and taped up - the switches had fallen into the cavity behind the bed head. In terms of facilities - none. Well, there's an overpriced 7/11 and a Gloria Jeans coffee cart. If you want any decent breakfast before say 10am you have NO chance - nothing at 1Borneo opens before 10am. And the halls STANK of burnt oil/sewerage. A horrid experience. Plus the staff are surly, a taxi from the airport costs about RM50 (or if like me you arrived at midnight, RM75). The only good thing is the transit office - the lady there was really friendly and arranged a private transfer back to the airport for RM35. Incidentally - if you do stay there, the shuttle leaves from the North Atrium of 1Borneo. Tune staff were unable to explain where it was and the shopping centre (for a "Hypermall" has NO guides/maps!)/
