Tune Hotel Waterfront Kuching, Sarawak

Reviewed January 19, 2014

Great location right on the river and a short walk to everything of interest. Very friendly service, very small but clean room and bathroom, very comfortable bed. Two problems: very slow wifi, especially in the evening, and Tune's crazy pricing policy. One Tune hotel has an add-on for this but not for that, another Tune hotel has one for that but not for this. You think you paid for everything in advance but then extras come up, including in Kuching having to pay for wifi separately each day, which is a real pain. But if you are looking for a comfortable and clean place in the right place at low cost, this is a good option if you don't mind the booking and payment craziness.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the street side, which is very quiet. The rear of the building offers no privacy a...

Hi Paul,

Our affordable rates makes us much sought after, especially by budget conscious travelers and we are just perfect for people who just want a good price on a user pays basis. Apart from the advantage of affordable prices, this concept is adopted primarily to support “Less Waste , More Earth”, which typically encompasses energy –consuming facilities such as air-conditioning, TV entertainment packages, laundered towels and other amenities.

We hope to welcome you back to our hotel once again. Thank you very much for the review.

Warm Regards,
De Silva- Customer Care Manager

I got a great bargain by booking early. The location is within walking distance to shopping malls, river cruise, dining and sight seeing. Check in was fast. They provide a transfer to Kuching airport for RM9.90 per person (max 2 person), which is cheaper than RM26 imposed using taxi coupon from airport to the hotel.

Room Tip: ask room facing main road or Hilton hotel. Nicer than facing the back of another building.

Avoid this hotel at all cost.... Esp couples..

I regret being kiamsiap (penny pinching ) and booked 2 nights here for my food hunting holiday here in Kuching.
1) Hotel feels like a prison- 4 walls, no balcony no window.
2) A/C , wifi access all comes with a price and timed. ( are we still a kid or what? My parents don't even monitor my internet usage )
3) the toilet is so cramp you can't even stretch your arms.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and stay in hilton hotel or Pullman hotel for that joyful holidayish feel

While I am a regular customer of tune hotel, this was my very first stay at Tune Hotel Kuching and honestly, its standard is way below other Tune Hotel such as Tune JB, Ipoh or Kota Bahru. Tune Kuching was converted from shop houses and hence the design is a bit odd. I was staying in a room facing other shop houses at the back, and honestly I feel like I’m staying in a prostitute’s motel. Many room will be without window and those front facing room with the view of Hilton Hotel will maybe bombard by street noise as soundproof of the window is poor. Room size is considered okay by tune standard, but cleanliness will be my major issue. Toilet is consider dirty will urine smell and mouldy. Bed sheet come with complimentary stain and small holes, and rubbish was found inside the folding desk. I will still be staying with other Tune Hotel , but I may struggle to pick Tune Hotel Kuching

Dear Guest, Thanks for the constructive comments following your recent stay. Tune Hotel omits the luxury by offering functional and basic rooms. Prices we offer are affordable and in line with the limited service model. This offers savings for both the hotel and guests. Guests pay extra if they require anything additional such as air conditioning, TV and WIFI. Our concept is easy on the pockets and flexible. Though our model is unique, we failed to meet up to the cleanliness standards we promise to deliver, and we apologize sincerely. We hope to be given the opportunity to serve you better in future- Rgds (Sharon De Silva-Manager)
