While I am a regular customer of tune hotel, this was my very first stay at Tune Hotel Kuching and honestly, its standard is way below other Tune Hotel such as Tune JB, Ipoh or Kota Bahru. Tune Kuching was converted from shop houses and hence the design is a bit odd. I was staying in a room facing other shop houses at the back, and honestly I feel like I’m staying in a prostitute’s motel. Many room will be without window and those front facing room with the view of Hilton Hotel will maybe bombard by street noise as soundproof of the window is poor. Room size is considered okay by tune standard, but cleanliness will be my major issue. Toilet is consider dirty will urine smell and mouldy. Bed sheet come with complimentary stain and small holes, and rubbish was found inside the folding desk. I will still be staying with other Tune Hotel , but I may struggle to pick Tune Hotel Kuching

Dear Guest, Thanks for the constructive comments following your recent stay. Tune Hotel omits the luxury by offering functional and basic rooms. Prices we offer are affordable and in line with the limited service model. This offers savings for both the hotel and guests. Guests pay extra if they require anything additional such as air conditioning, TV and WIFI. Our concept is easy on the pockets and flexible. Though our model is unique, we failed to meet up to the cleanliness standards we promise to deliver, and we apologize sincerely. We hope to be given the opportunity to serve you better in future- Rgds (Sharon De Silva-Manager)

Very good location, near the Waterfront and the shopping mall around it. No windows tho. Just the area near there have cheap stalls especially for breakfast. Need to pay for TV and wifi access but doesn't matter if you come there to stay after taking a long walk on day

For this stay, I booked the hotel using coupon I got after writing a review for staying at Tune Hotel at 1Borneo. I got 20% less. Can you imagine the price after discount. It really worths every cents I paid. Hotel is near to many shopping malls and restaurants. Sushi King and Old Town White Coffee are also nearby. If you need to find travel agency to plan your trip, there is one in the hotel. They are not partner, just that the travel agency rents a place opposite to the receptionist counter. You do need to worry about transport, although I heard that the bus company there has bankrupt. The nearby attraction is, of course, the Waterfront. If you need to go to other attractions further away, just use the service from that travel agency. And make sure you find the taxi service number from the hotel before you arrived. You can get less than RM 10 per person for a taxi to bring you to the hotel from airport. You will pay higher if you use the taxi service from airport. The same goes for taxi to the airport. The only problem is the taxi service from the hotel starts at 8am. You need to ask the receptionist to call another taxi if you need to go earlier than that, and you need to pay higher than RM 20 for the taxi. There were two of us, so each of us paid RM 12.

Tune is right across the road from the Hilton and is in the BEST LOCATION in town.
15m up the hill is The Tribal Stove restaurant, and 50m down the hill is the heart of the Waterfront tourist area. There are also 3 massage places within 30m.
The rooms are very small and basic. No tea/coffee making facilities.No minifridge. Cheap TV with few channels.Wifi for one user per room only which is not good for 2 people with smart phones.Showers are great. Breakfast is the lobby is mediocre.
The front tour desk offers very competitive priced tours and also staying at the Tune gave us a 50% discount on a 1.5hr Sarawak River cruise.
So it really saves a lot of money for dining out and shopping.
Dont miss Top Spot seafood hawker restauarant about 300m away..
