Tune Hotel - 1Borneo, Kota Kinabalu
Ranked #30 of 92 Hotels in Kota Kinabalu
Reviewed February 9, 2013

I can't complain about this place, i think it cost about £20 a night, you had to pay about an extra £1 for a towel each day and for aircon. You also have to pay for the TV too which i didn't bother with.

The room is pretty basic, a room with a bed, a rail for a few clothes and a safe. There is a small shower room too. I would recommend earplugs too if your at the front of the building.

The staff are very pleasant and helpful, you can get a free shuttle bus to KK from the shopping centre on the hour every hour. There are plenty of places to eat near by as it has a hyper mall attched to it.

There is also a 7eleven shop for snacks. :)

Room Tip: not at the front

Very clean hotel and located beside shopping mall, it is convenience enough as some mini markets open 24hours! The staffs are friendly and helpful too. With just a promotional price, you can experience 4 stars services! The fan is strong enough and we don't need to add-on air conditional. The only con is limited parking place and parking in front hotel costs RM6 and parking inside mall is RM10 if overnight. However we are lucky enough to get the parking lot, and it is 15mins to the KK city. Overall Tune Hotel is a good choice and i will consider Tune Hotel for my next trip.

Room Tip: Get a room when there are promotion, that will be super worthy and cheaper a lot than backpacker hos...

Went for a 2 nights stay, just for a short trip shopping in 1 Borneo.

If you want to save taxi fare from airport to Tunes, take cab from airport to warisan square RM30 (airport Limo to Tune is RM50 as of Jan 2013), hop on the free shuttle bus from warisan square to 1Borneo, the bus stop is just in front Royal Sports House at Block C, register at the bustop booth itself, provide registration info- hw many pax, hotel name, where are you from, room no. or tell them you are going to check in. The free shuttle is on hourly basis, were lucky because waited only 5-10mins. It took about 15mins to 1Borneo.

From Tune to Airport, the cab is RM40 for 2-4pax and they will drive u to airport in a spacious van.

No hot water but can purchase some hot drinks at 7eleven(inside Tune), and bring your thermos to refill hot water to your room to make drinks or baby milk.

1Borneo Seaworld is not open yet and might not open at all.

Tips for tolder travel: Get a luxurious buggy trolley at Giant LG to settle your kid, deposit RM50, free use, but trolley is not allowed into any shops.

Room Tip: Some room has smoky smell.. mulfunction TV, check it before take it. The cardkey might not work on 2...

Stay away-it will ruin your stay in Kota Kintabalu. Much better to stay in the centre of the town at the same price. The hotell will also charge you for nights you haven't spent, if you have reserved room.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for completing a Trip Advisor Review on your recent visit to our hotel.

Tune Hotels requires extra payment for anything that is not an elemental part of a stay.

For non-essential items such as TV, Wi-Fi, tea and coffee 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. The benefit of this efficiency is passed on to the consumer providing excellent value for money and low prices.

Apologies for the inconveniences you have encountered.

Considering the progress and dedication our hotel team has displayed over the past; our team works very hard to connect with all of our guests and provide the best within the limited service concept.

In any case we apologize sincerely for this unpleasantness marring your stay - Thank you.

Regards,
Sharon- Cus Care Manager
