Low-cost five-star
: If you are looking for a convenient, comfortable and affordable place to stay, consider the Tune Hotels. Com the next time you come to Sabah. It will soon be landing in the heart of the Land Below the Wind at lBorneo in Jalan Sulaman, bringing to Sabah a branded ‘limited service hotel’ concept offering a 5-star sleeping experience at only a 1-star price. As a ‘limited service hotel’, Tune Hotels. Com keeps prices low by eliminating certain facilities commonly found at full-service hotels such as meeting rooms, swimming pools, gyms, spas, saunas and room service. Tune Hotels. Com chief executive officer Mark Lankaster disclosed that the concept offer guests high quality basic comforts of a powerful hot shower and a warm, comfortable double bed in clean, secure enviromnent; all at the best possible price, starting from as low as RM9. 99 with advanced online booking. “Each Tune Hotels. Com room comes equipped with a high quality King Koil-Queen-sized spring mattress bed, pillows, pillowcases, bedsheets and 25-thread count duvet; en-suite bathroorn with power showers, hot water, bath mats and toilet rolls, a ceiling fan, electronic key card access into the room and a wall-mounted writing table with power socket,” he said, adding its hotel at lBorneo will have 16 rooms. Each hotel also comes with free internet access at the lobby, daily house-keeping, 24-hour convenience store and branded food & beverage outlets. The flagship Downtown Kuala Lumpur hotel now open in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman in Kuala Lurnpur counts established retailers Subway and 7-Eleven among its tenants, and also provides ATM, foreign exchange and city tour/airport transfer facilities. A 7-Eleven outlet will also be present at Tune Hotels.Com-lBorneo here, alongside popular cafe outlet Gloria Jeans and established waffle and corn-in-cup retailers Nelson. Tune Hotels.Com is a great believer in the power of consumer choice and thus guests are given the option to fine-tune their stay with reasonably-priced add-ons such as air-conditioning (sold in easily topped-up blocks of 5 and 12 hours), toiletry kits, towels and in-room WiFi TM services. As the brand moves forward with more hotels nationally and eventually, regionally, we will introduce an ever-increasing range of improvements and optional add-ons based on customer feedback. “For the next Tune Hotels. Com in 1-Borneo, we will be widening our range of optional add-ons to include hairdryers and a Sharp Aquos 19” LCD TV with more than 10 channels to choose from. “Room entry will be controlled via intelligent RFID Key Cards, which also stores pre-purchased Air Conditioning, WiFi and TV access,” said Lankaster.
In addition, they will be upgrading the quality of finishes and materials used in the rooms, with the already super comfortable Tune beds by King Koil, being upgraded to even higher quality spring mattresses with accompanying divans. Room additions include a safe, bedside table with LED bedside lamps and acoustically sound-proof doors for an even more peaceful night’s sleep. Sanitary fitting in the ensuite bathroorn are similarly also being upgraded. Each Tune Hotels. Com hotel is strategically located in central, urban destinations convenient for guests to get to the heart of the action, whether it be tourist and shopping attractions, local cuisine hotspots or key business destinations.
