This hotel was recommended by my friend. I booked it online and found that the price is very cheap compared to other hotels in 1Borneo. At first, I didn't hope that much about a room, but when I saw a room I just said 'wow, it's very nice'. So i wanna suggest you to try :)

As everyone knows, this is a basic hotel and you have to pay for everything if you want to add aircond, tv, wifi, breakfast and even towel. However, it's located near to 1Borneo with many restaurants, cinema, bowling, shopping and entertainment. The room is equipped with fan.The bed is comfortable and the staff is friendly.

I can't complain about this place, i think it cost about £20 a night, you had to pay about an extra £1 for a towel each day and for aircon. You also have to pay for the TV too which i didn't bother with. The room is pretty basic, a room with a bed, a rail for a few clothes...

Very clean hotel and located beside shopping mall, it is convenience enough as some mini markets open 24hours! The staffs are friendly and helpful too. With just a promotional price, you can experience 4 stars services! The fan is strong enough and we don't need to add-on air conditional. The only con is limited parking place and parking in front...

Lights on the second floor lift lobby were sometimes turned off at night, making it dangerous for solo travelers at night. Room conditions were inconsistent and not as well-kept as other Tune Hotel branches, eg Tune Hotel in Penang. Hotel is also a good 20 mins from KK town and cab fees cost up to RM30 one way.
