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..

Normal Tune Hotel, some rooms have good view of the river, the ones at the front, but if you are stuck in the back you just have a block of flats, we found the back a bit noisy as there were street food stalls, with the TV turned up full blast, still it was good enough for the price, and well located

Room Tip: front of hotel is a must for good view

Short and simple stay overall. Been here for quite a number of visit. Room was well clean. Location was superb! Just right infront of the Hilton Hotel. Very near to eating places, Shopping complexes, souvenir shop and even the river of Sarawak. Please go for local food and try their delicacies. Its amazing!

Room Tip: No good view at all.
