We stayed for 3 nights at Tune hotel, having stayed the first night of our trip to Kuching in a much more back-packer style place. Tune was like the Hilton (and just across the road from it, actually) compared to other places we stayed on our trip. The rooms were incredibly clean, with great showers and very comfy beds. The whole style of the hotel is quite trendy, very well designed and modern. I think it's very new so the rates reflect that. The hotel manager, Dennis, could not have been nicer or more accommodating to us and his staff were super friendly and helpful. Kuching was a very beautiful city and I think we were really lucky to have had such a great base from which to explore it. The air-con and internet connection was particularly welcome!

I've booked the room without any problem at hotel website. At the airport are some minivans organized by hotel and can bring you easily to the hotel for abour 8RM/person. If you come before checkin time you can leave the bags at the reception for a little money.
Room is small, without any wardrobe (only hanger is there), but with a safe and tiny foldable desk. Everything is clean.
Since you get only room for the basic rate, AC or towels are charged extra and might be wise to book already at website (should be cheaper). Not a big amount, no problem.
You can get some snacks, tea/coffe, toasts, drinks at the hotel buffet, but unfortunately opens a bit later in the morning (the lady there comes by bus and cannot come earlier).
The hotel is located next to Hilton, very close to the Waterfront. If you want to get out by bust to any place you can walk to the bus station (approx. 15mins). Taxis are directly in front of the hotel.

Seriously dirt cheap for the quality of rooms. Very comfortable bed and great shower. Very strategic location but disco thumping is annoying. Lack of TV in room is a drawback and noise from corridors can be quite pronounced. Free Internet computer at reception.

I treated myself to the 8 Ringgit double room ($2.70 Aus/53p GBP) per night. Soap, towel and air con added a tad, but , mercifully, bog roll was inc. What’s the catch? Well, no TV, no chair to sit on. Bit noisy, but fan/air con muffles it effectively. But you get a good bed, new bathroom with shower. How do they make money? Dunno. With the dosh you save, go next door to the Hilton for buffet brekkie – sumptuous at $13 a pop.

Tunehotel in Kucing offers much more room than Tunehotel in KLCC and KLIA. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Bare in mind that a towel and soap kit must be paid for as extra and also WIFI and AIRCON. This hotel is certainly a lot better than the ones in KL and offers excellent value for money. If I go back to Kuching I may stay there again. there is a free internet access for 20 minutes in the lobby. If you bring your own netbook you can buy 12 hours of internet WiFi

Have stayed previously at Tune KL (City and Airport) and this one was a dream compared to the other two! Was travelling on a budget, so went for own room with bathroom expecting no more. Plus side - excellent location - walk out the door and you're 60m from the river. Turn left or right for either of Kuchings great restaurant/interest areas. Right across from the Hilton, so location galore. Room was bigger than previous two Tune stays too.
Downside - could be a bit noisy from the karaoke bar nearby, no food in the foyer etc. But, overall, total value for money. Free net access (20 min a time) for guests, easy airport transfers (RM8), good staff. Bed is very comfortable - new hotel, so new amenities. I stayed on the ground floor, next to entrance so expected it to be noisy, but not too bad at all. A hotel room should be for sleeping, so if that's your philosophy you'll be fine!
Also, when in Kuching, try Benson Seafood and Bla Bla Bla if you love your food!
