The hotel is located annex to Sabah largest hupermarket of 1Borneo. Its is strategically situated at the heart of Kota Kinabalu which offers a rainbow of attractions. Easy accessible to cheap public transport, a host of tour agents and convenient for shopping.

Tune hotel is well known for low rates. The room is really cozy for my experience as we came group of 12 people. We are known as the YOLO (You Only Live Once) group. We enjoy things which are not available at our origin which is in KL.

So for those who love to go for food hunting, night markets browsing, this Tune hotel is the best I may suggest to you.

The hotel itself is interconnected to a mall called 1Borneo. It's really convenient if maybe you wanna watch mid night movie. Next to the hotel is a massage centre where you can pamper yourself after tiring day enjoying the city of KK. Next to it there is also a convenience market like 7 Eleven even though 7 Eleven is actually at the hotel lobby.

On top of everything I enjoy my stay to the max at the most lowest cost.

Low price, clean room, comfortable bed, good toilet, safe deposit box, hairdryer, powerful fan, high ceiling and large wall and toilet mirrors. Toilet has no hooks but has handle bars on glass toilet door and shower room door. No toiletories except toilet paper, no phone, not much room for lugguage space. Only 1 room card given due security but very inconvenient if another person needs to go out as entry to main corridor also needs card and has to ask guard to follow to open. Do ask for room with window. Front desk staff friendly and speak good English. If need aircon, tv, etc, pay for add-ons. Our room had "Comfort Package Add-ons" included. See photo for add-ons pricing. Towel & toiletories add-ons are 1 towel to return after use, 1 small bar of soap and 1 tube of shampoo in a takeaway bag which you can keep as a carrier bag. Hot and cold water dispenser at lobby but bring your own cup. Free half-hour wifi at lobby, renewable when time expired.

We booked for 5 nights. Inconvenient if you go to KK town daily. Though there's free shuttle at 1Borneo's North Atrium, it's limited by its hourly schedule and a 2-hr break near dinner time. Taxi to KK town costs RM30 one way from taxi stand. Tune Hotel has car rental - transport to KK town RM20 one way, RM40 to airport but must book early due limited drivers.

Next door is 24-hr Orange convenience store (like 7-Eleven). 1Borneo is a huge mall. Fun for those who enjoy shopping and coffee breaks. Most stores open 10am, close at 10pm. Car rental company at Tune Hotel offers tours which might be cheaper than if booked from town but do check prices and what are included. Note some companies apply transport surcharge for tours from 1Borneo instead of city hotels though it's not always the case.

Overall, hotel is good value for money if you don't spend on transport or know how to take public buses. After the initial getting used to and minor adjustments, room is actually very comfortable and sufficient.

Room Tip: Get a room with window.

Dear Guest,

Thanks for the review.

We offer the basic; a comfortable bed and hot shower for a wonderful slumber experience, always located centrally, all at extremely affordable prices. Our rooms are space-challenged, but they're impeccably clean and perfectly adequate as "crash pads".

The hotel itself is just fine. It has 7-11 in it, Orange in neighborhood, and a plaza 100m away.
The only problem may be its distance from KK which is not really a problem since public transportation is almost free and convenience.
A bit noise came from the corridor which is the mutual problem of all Tune Hotels that I staid in them.

Room Tip: Try restaurants in the neighboring plaza, especially the Indonesian rooster restaurant at undergroun...

I think the concept of Tune Hotels is very suitable for those who have low budget but need a comfortable stay. The room only has the necessities (and by necessity I mean fan, not air condition). No toiletries, no towel, no TV, no Wifi. But if we are at a place where the greatest nature take place, who needs TV and internet, right? You go out as early as possible to get a better view of Mount Kinabalu, then you get back at night, you have no time for TV. So. Tune Hotels is very ideal for people who are really spending their time enjoying Kota Kinabalu. You just take shower and sleep once you get back to the hotel. And if you are a person who brings everything you need with you, then you do not need to buy the towel and toiletries from the hotel. And you can also enjoy special Sabah food for breakfast, as the hotel does not provide free breakfast for guests. Just remember that not all rooms have windows.

It's located in a mall itself. So convenient. There's also a 7eleven at the lobby.

Value for money. And best of all comfortable bed!

I booked the room with the comfort package ( 24hours ac & toiletries ) but the fan provided in the room is actually already enough for my comfort in the room. So if you are looking for the basic amenity without having to pay extra, you actually don't need the 24 hours ac option. Just go for the basic room option & with toiletries option for only an extra of rm6
