Franchise hotel chain, TuneHotels.Com Waterfront Kuching will be operational on March 2.

The hotel offers 135 ensuite rooms within the heart of Kuching city and within walking distance to several shopping complexes such as Tun Jugah, Park Grand at Riverside Majestic.

A room at Tune Hotels can be booked online modeled after the low-cost airlines Airasia’s online booking. Promotional rate currently cited as low as R0.05 per night for stays between November 2009 to January 2010, and at RM5 per night for stays between March and October 2009.

However, read the fine print. A room cited at RM0.05 actually will cost you RM50++ and RM5 per night may well cost you RM80++ per night. So it wasn’t really cheap.
