“Feel like home.!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're in budget.You can add on air-conditioning, TV, Wi-Fi and towels & soap if required. No wardrobes, just and extendable hanger. Parking is also a huge problem in that area if you're driving. It's located in a strategic area, within walking distance to Kuching Waterfront and the famous Top Spot seafood. There's also a 7 Eleven and a reasonably priced souvenir shop along the same road. Other than that, I'm very satisfied with the service for the price I paid.

Go for this hotel.

Overal:
> Nice room
> Bed is very comfortable.!
> Bathroom is superb.

Overall,nice budget hotel to stay.

Room Tip: Make sure to pick the room facing the road.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a family trip in July 2013. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're on a budget and all you need is a place to shower and sleep for the night.

It's a small basic room. There are no wardrobes, just an extendable hanger for you to hang your towels and clothes. The table is just a plank of wood hanging from the wall and which can be closed against the wall when not in use. There's just enough space for you to walk around the bed. Simple shower and washroom. As with all other Tune Hotels, you pay only for what you need. You can add on air-conditioning, TV, Wi-Fi and towels & soap if required.

The rooms are clean and your sheets will only be changed every other day unless specified. This is to keep their costs low.

It's located in a strategic area, within walking distance to Kuching Waterfront and the famous Top Spot seafood. There's also a 7 Eleven and a reasonably priced souvenir shop along the same road.

The hotel had some collaboration with Sarawak River Cruise at that time and my family and I managed to get a 50% discount on the ticket price.

The downside was that the housekeeping lady kept knocking on our door one afternoon while we're taking a nap even though we placed the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door. Requested her to return an hour later but didn't do so. Parking is also a huge problem in that area if you're driving. Tune Hotels has their own allocated parking for their guests but it's located somewhere behind the hotel. I wouldn't recommend parking there as it looked dark and dodgy especially at night.

Other than that, I'm very satisfied with the service for the price I paid. Booked 9 months in advance and only paid RM30++/night inclusive of 24 hours of air-conditioning credit.

This is our 2nd family stay at Tune. We family of four stayed for 2 nights with two bedrooms for our youngest Daughter's Graduation. It is a great location for tourist and family alike as it gives accessibility to the waterfront and shopping as well as to varieties of food gallery. The receptionist are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: "Rooms on the north side with windows are great"

We stay here for two nights because of its location and price and we weren't disappointed. The room is clean and with nice bed and power shower, it's definetly a bargain. It's a walking distance to waterfront and we'll be back for sure.

The room is clean and new. very suitable for solo and small family. Located at strategic location easily accessible to tourist attraction and shopping. Those places are within walking distance. The only problem is lack of efficiency in kuching public transport.
