“Good if you don't mind being far from everything”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

The usual Tune deal, including its labyrinthine pricing structure. Small room but OK, comfortable bed, good shower, good wifi, good price, but the room already looked rough around the edges, and the traffic from the highway was very noisy. And why on earth would most travelers choose to stay in such a remote place? I was driving back from up north with a plane to catch in the morning so I had no need to spend time in the city, which I already knew. But for first-time visitors, KK isn't pretty, but it's a fun city, with good eateries at all prices and great bars. The Tune hotel is out in the sticks, part of 1Borneo, a modern office and shopping complex a very long way away from the city. Reviewers mention a shuttle service to KK, but I never saw it nor was offered it. Of all the out-of-way locations of the Tune hotels I know (Kota Baru, Angeles City, even downtown KL), this is by far the most bizarre and inconvenient. Have a good look at the map and at your needs before you book!

Room Tip: Away from the very noisy highway and not in the center of the building, where rooms have no windows...

Our first stay at 1Borneo Tune Hotel was very2 OK, unexpectedly comfortable and convenient - for travellers on the go and need to save on hotel stay yet stay comfortably with not much hassles, this is the place for you!

Room Tip: Higher room for lesser noise, with windows facing main road

We had a sort stay, just 1 night at 1 Borneo. The room was very clean and nice, the bed was so comfy. It is located in a huge shopping centre in Sabah, but a bit far from the main town. The surrounding place was very nice, with a huge parking area. All was great except the aircond ventilation was not good as some part of the room was too cold while the other part was a bit warm. But that didnt bother us much as we just stay for 1 night.

Room Tip: Ask a room with a window to get good view

first time i stay at Tune Hotel,
it erases all the bad impression which was leveled by others. This is because the service we received was very satisfactory and the treatment accorded equal status with vip guests. The orderly room and adequate facilities in the room commensurate with the price we paid. No hidden charges. We enjoy what we pay. We will not be tired to book Tune Hotel again in the future. Nor do we doubt to recommend others to book Tune Hotel.

I went to this hotel in 2011. The room was quite small, but complete with almost everything you need, including a wired broadband free of charge! It has also bus (free of charge) to take you to the city center every hour. The downside is the hotel if quite far from the city center. Overall, I'm quite astounded!

We stayed only for a night and felt it was the best for a over nite stay. Rooms were pretty clean and good bathroom. Location is really nice as hotel is in the 1 Borneo Mall. Good eating options available in the mall, 24 hrs 7 eleven for last minute purchases.

We stayed here purposely for shopping, and this hotel just next to 1borneo shopping centre, save us a lot of time and taxi fare. There is only things is distance fr/to airport is quite far but low hotel price can cover it. The room is bigger than LCCT. And I love the bed very much, it very comfortable.
