Tune Hotels – “No Frills” Hotel, means…

I came across a news today about Tune Hotels, a “no frills” hotel, which operates similar like Malaysian “no frills” airline, Airasia. I was really surprise with the fare (from RM9.90 per night). You may think that it’s really cheap, but it came with a price. With that price, you won’t get any towels, soap, shampoo, no room service available, no telephones, television, radio, safe, mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms and no wardrobes in any of the rooms but you can hang your clothes with the ready available clothing hooks. So you better think twice before you go an book a room in the hotel.

And make sure you ask for a room with windows (as some room are without windows) and air-conditioned room (as some rooms only have ceiling fan).

(Make sure you read their FAQ page properly before you make a booking)

Currently, there is one in Kuala Lumpur, and soon there will be one in Kota Kinabalu, Penang and Johor Bahru.

In my opinion, if you are coming to Kota Kinabalu, better for you to choose the backpacker and travelers lodges in the city. They are even more convenient, with more friendly environment and some of them provides shuttle buses to and fro the airport.

  1. Really haunted??? Cz i plan to stay there tis nov. Anybody body can tell me more about that “Tune Hotel”?

  2. The Tune Hotel was refurbished from a former Centrepoint Hotel which was converted from an abandoned Sentosa Medical Center [hospital in the ture sense].During the operating days of Centrepoint Hotel, I heard from many taxi drivers that anxious guests checked out at 0200 hrs to other hotels and claimde that they could not stand the torment of ghosts in their rooms. The CentrePoint hotel closed down most probably due to this publicity.

  3. I’ve stay in Tune Hotel 1 Borneo and it seems ok to me because the room i just need for sleep and rest. Hanging all my belonging is not a problem, all other necessities can be purchase at Giant Hypermarket at groundfloor and its very cheap. most of the day i’ll be out and only come to the room to sleep and rest after venturing Kota Kinabalu area…no problem..its good and cheap. worthy if you care for budgeted accomodation.
