We stayed in a double bed room for two nights. We love the room so much and the bed is very comfortable, washroom is clean and not smelly. Although the room space is limited, but its okay for two people. The hotel is not located in the middle of the city, we can only shop at the 1Borneo Shopping Mall,...

Cheap clean rooms. Part of a modern hypermall, 1Borneo. But located about 15kms northeast of the city centre. There's a free shuttle bus service from the city (near Wawasan plaza, I think) to 1Borneo, so try to catch the bus since a taxi ride may be costly. Rooms are not accessible from the lobby, you have to take the elevator...

Stayed again on overnight transit. Quite far from airport, but being at 1Borneo makes up for it. Rooms basic, clean & functional. Get to keep the nice bag that held the towel,soap & shampoo. Friendly & helpful front desk staff. 2 24-hr stores & travel outlet on site. Great for short stay.

I have stayed in a few Tune hotels before now and, up until now, I have found that these have been modern and fairly well-maintained. By comparison, I found the Tune Hotel at1 Borneo just a bit grotty. The hotel rooms are not actually accessed from the hotel reception, which is located inside a 7-eleven shop... They are accessed by...

First of all, the location is about 20-min drive from KK town which is not so convenient after all. Secondly the room is old and I suspect some bed bugs there because we got some bug bites after staying 2 nights there. Room is very small as usual, and those rooms without window is not recommended at all. The only...

Stayed 10 nights. Rooms are decent size (for one), great fans, perfect showers, excellent housekeeping. Located in a massive mall (as are 2 other hotels, 4 or 5 star hotel), but easy to get into town using the shuttles; perfect for single travellers. People travelling in a big group will probably need to take a taxi, as the shuttle is...
