Lovin’ this tune

Very comfy bed. On par with the dream beds at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver at a fraction of the price.

Quick post before I board a flight to Tawau in Malaysia.

I’ve found my new love in budget accommodation and it’s called Tune Hotels.

This one, near door to Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2, is walking distance from terminal 2 and a three minute train ride (cost under $1 CDN) from terminal 1.

Air Asia either owns or has a financial holding in Tune Hotels. They’re popping up all over the world.

I flew Air Asia a few years ago from Bangkok to Denpasar, Bali. A few hitches with check-in, but otherwise a great experience.

This room, for which I paid $64.49 CDN is fantastic. Small, yet everything I need. Shower, toilet, air conditioning and fan, sink, bed, safe, desk and excellent wifi. It also has a honking big TV. Also, clean beyond belief. Great desk staff.

The bed is so comfy I slept 11 hours. Even the noise in the hallway didn’t prevent a night of amazing slumber.

There’s a 24 hour 7-11 next door to the lobby. And, Air Asia check-in kiosk. I’m in heaven. I’ll be staying here again on my way back to Canada in a few weeks.

Next stop, a week of scuba diving near Sipidan Island.
