Guests are at liberty to choose facilities and services needed according to their wishes and choices. Those who , like me, are advised not to get exposed to air conditioning could opt it out and save physical discomfort and room charges. Those who like to use their own towels can also opt out towels provided by the hotel. Those who...

I booked 3 double n 1 single room. Didn't specify which was single room upon check in. Then later realized there were no towels in the rooms even though its paid for. Had to call via handphone and they said they forgot to give upon checking in. Then later we realized that they gave us 1 towel shirt but we...

I love it!!! Few times I stayed at Tune... Feels like home already!!!! Good Hotel.. Cheap & affordable. But feels like 5 Star Bed. Really close to Shopping Mall, Starbucks, GSC & easy to find cheap food. Free Shuttle bus also available. That best!!! Easy to go to town area & to Jesselton point - Islands.

That was my second Tune, after the Johor Bahru. It was quite surprise how different Tune hotels could be. Quite old building, ants and small cockroaches in bathroom common for that building. The rooms dated and required uplifting. We moved from one room where was a lot of ants to another big one. It was good room. The inside entrance...

More spacious as expected, although you need to spend time to and from town centre, you have free shuttle every hour. The price of the day tours quoted by the travel agencies in town centre is better than the Extra travel company at the corner opposite to the convenience store of the hotel. Yet you can arrange for transport there...

I like Tune Hotel's concept, limited service hotels and offer beds at affordable prices by getting rid of costly extras such as hotel pools and spas! Easy for shopping because it located next to 1Borneo. We have no problem to get the food. 7-11 is next to it also. It will be perfect if shuttle bus provided for return to/from...

On and Off, Tune Hotels give away discounted or seems like free room to 1st come 1st serve basic. I was lucky to get a room for a very extermely low price. It felt like staying in a 3 stars hotel for free.

As any other Tune Hotel, you need to pay for extra add-in. As usual, try book during promotion/offer to get the best economical deal(it's really a low bargain), other wise the walk in price is kind of pricy. Through out my 4 days 3 nights stay(early March), the air-con on all corridoors (3rd floor)were blowing hot air. Do not understand...

To me, the room was good. This hotel was located near to 1 Borneo, easier for us to find foods and entertainment. Shuttle bus service is provided to the town of KK, so..no worries if you want to go there. The only thing that I am not satisfied with this vacation is, taxi charge. Maybe Tune Hotel can provide shuttle...
