“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Great location, easy walking distance to monorail and lrt, across road from shopping mall with supermarket, eating places and shops, subway and 7-11 downstairs. Staff friendly and helpful. Free wifi in lobby or cheap in room ($4/24hrs)- has to be used within that 24hrs, can't be stretched out over several days. Ac again is cheap, and this can be stretched out if you turn on & off when you need to. Room is small as expected and advertised, but very clean, modern and bed very comfortable with good powerful shower in bathroom. Tv I didn't use as was out shopping and sightseeing, had bbc news, and I think a sport and movie channel in English. Laundry upstairs, can use washing machine for 3RM and dryer for 2RM.
Value for money excellent and I will stay here again next time I am passing through KL

Hi,

Thank you for taking time to post a feedback on Trip Advisor following your recent stay.

As a limited-service hotel brand we focus on high quality basics, a 5-star bed and hot shower, housed within a clean and secure environment, always located centrally, at extremely affordable prices

Our limited service concept means that we reduce the room size and the Complimentary extras whilst simultaneously lowering the prices we offer.

Our primary focus is to offer a comfortable bed and shower for a wonderful slumber experience.

Thank you very much for choosing us and we greatly value your continuous support.

See you soon.

Warm Regards,
Sharon- Customer Care Manager

The experience of booking Tune hotels is like booking a budget airfare flight - everything is charged on top! From air con (which is needed), to internet access costs on top of the room rate. Aside from this, this was a pleasurable experience. Rooms were clean and modern. Location was good in downtown KL, and everything you needed was close by. The wifi was a little dodgy, and considering you're paying for it, it does grate a little! Staff were friendly and attentive, and luckily, if you arrive late, there's a 7-11 and subway downstairs to grab something from.

Hi There,

Thank you for posting a review.

We have adopted a minimalistic approach throughout our hotels worldwide. Providing the basics; bed and shower, Our piece-meal concept requires extra payment for anything that is not an elemental part of a stay.

'For non-essential items such as TV, Wi-Fi, air -conditioning, toiletries and hairdryers, guests only pay if they need them. Guests not using the extra facilities won't be charged for them as part of the room price.' This typically allows our customers to assemble their stay requirements to suit their budget.

Our hotel has successfully pioneered a branded value hotel brand with the concept of pay-as-you-use that has become hugely popular amongst travelers from across the world.

We hope you give us the opportunity to once again welcome you on board and provide you the positive Tune Hotel experience you have come to expect from us.


Warm Regards,
Sharon- Customer Care Manager

I went to this hotel visiting a friend who stayed here. I would give it better rating if it's not an old building with very slow elevator and poor sound proofing. The room on the other hand, even though very small and tight, is quite comfy and standard. The toilet is super tiny you have to squeeze if 2 person at the same time are trying to use it. The bed is undeniably very comfy, there's lots of mirrors in this room which is one thing they're not stingy about. The locations is not only near to the monorail station, but also a Ampang Line LRT, Sultan Ismail station. However there's some construction going on now near the hotel and they're not providing a proper path for pedestrians which is quite dangerous.
If i'm paying for this room, i wouldn't pay more than rm150 for it. given the location.

Room Tip: If you're on a budget take 12hrs A/C as they also provide a ceiling fan in the room.

I really appreciate the no-frills, purchase as needed concept of Tune Hotels, which makes travelling more affordable and enjoyable. Tune Hotel KL has very affordable rates (cheaper if you book way in advance) and is within walking distance from the main shopping area (Bukit Bintang), and after a long day of sight seeing, shopping and walking, the beds are very comfortable to sleep in. And as tourists who are out all day, a soft comfortable bed and a strong hot shower and is all you need to get you started on a following day's journey. Forget something? There's a convenience store at the lobby. Hungry? There's a Subway kiosk at the lobby as well, or you can go to the mall across the road for Pizza Hut and KFC. Looking forward to staying in other Tune Hotels in the future.

To maximize a good stay in this hotel, you should well prepare DIY kit, then you'll satisfy the accommodation. You may bring the toiletry kit or purchase here and must have free and easy mind. Good for single and couple traveler. I do enjoy basic facilities here and sure to stay again.

Room Tip: Nice view at high floor corner

I am pleasantly surprised that they have finally fixed the bug in their wifi that causes my iOad to be logged out every 5 minutes. Everything else is perfect now - clean room, soft bed and pillow, and a strong shower!

Room Tip: If you can, try to ask for the corner room on the topmost floor, great view!
