Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia is at least 30 minutes' drive from downtown Kuala Lumpur, so guests who are simply transiting through KL might prefer accommodations adjacent to the airport. (More info here: Where is Kuala Lumpur?)
Tune Hotels is suitably placed for guests using the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT); guests going through KLIA should stay at the Pan Pacific, Concorde Inn, or at the Airside if they’re not crossing Immigration. For a more comprehensive list of KL hotels, read this article: Hotels in Kuala Lumpur. For flights around the region, compare rates on flights through Malaysia Airlines.

The 5-storey property has 222 non-smoking rooms. Following Tune Hotels' unique budget concept, the basic price covers room and bathroom. Wireless Internet usage and other amenities may be provided for a fee.
