“Poor Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Having stayed at this hotel in the past, returning in October 2012,found the hotel facilities excellent but also found many changes to the surrounding area and in my opinion, Danga Bay is now very run down. A nearby shooping outlet has been demolished and the theme park is attracting less tourists, with the opening of Lego Land. Completion of the road network and flyovers now make taxi rides even longer, as they are required to travel a distance before doing a "U" turn to head to any of the shopping malls. There is a bus stop near the hotel but it is northbound and I would not risk crossing a main highway to get a bus heading to JB City, if there was a stop available. There is generally only 1 bus service to Singapore, except on weekends, if the demand warrants an additional bus. Our 1st trip took 3 Hrs to arrive at Sentosa, with traffic congestion and the double border crossing, especially on a weekday. Having a car is an added bonus in getting around , for Malaysian's that is. Other than 7-11, there a some reasonable food outlets but mainly cater for nearby office staff on weekdays. Very limited on weekends.

Room Tip: Select rooms facing the front car park and business offices. The opposite side nearest the highway c...

the moment from we checked-in until we checked-out, all is above the average, the process is smooth with lots of smiles from the front-desk staffs. The room is clean & all the amenities are working properly.

The truth I cannot have a good sleep in this Tune hotel jb. Can hear noises at the corridor, doors open and close, children screaming at 1 am. Maybe it is not children but another entity. The rooms have no good soundproof. The bed is good but the pillows are too thin for my liking. Have to bring own pillow next time maybe. Room air cond not that cool. Service is good. Clean hotel. Satisfactory stay for me.

A very nice and clean Hotel. Good customer service, good location.

It was a little bit disappointed because the room is not very good in soundproof. We can hear others opened/closed the door, and this was quite disturbing our sleep.

a budget hotel with clean environment and helpful staff. Although you need to pay extra for upgrading your room to air-con service, wifi etc, but overall I'm quite satisfy with my stay for 2 days one night in Tune Hotel, Danga Bay, Johor.

An excellent hotel.Ease of booking, variety of worth package, quick confirmation, superb clean, cozy bed and pillow, friendly staff, the experience was like in a 5 star hotel. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the toilets were also spotless, the beds were comfortable. And the best part is that the price is very good. It's a great place to go if you want cleanliness, security, comfort and a good location.....
