The hotel location was ideal and wasn't far from the place where we're visiting in Bintulu. The room condition is ok with all the amenities working in order except for a minor plumbing maintenance work needed to be done in the bathroom for pipe leakage. As per previous reviews the room location in the hotel facing the Kampung Assyakirin is most preferred for it's quietness away from the pub and karaoke activities during the night. Overall we had what we expected for in this first visit to Bintulu.

Tune Hotel is now known as 101 Hotel.

During my stay in Bintulu, my husband booked a deluxe single room at 101 Hotel for us. He booked the hotel room from Agoda and we managed to get a cheaper rate.

This hotel has two views; one facing the shops, cafes and clubs (the front side of the hotel which might me a bit noisy during weekend) and another one facing Assyakirin Malay settlement (the back side of the hotel).

Our room was small, yet cosy. There was a ceiling fan plus an air conditioner, a television placed in front of our bed, a chiller, a safety box, two towels and two complimentary drinking water. Unfortunately, there was not telephone and kettle in the room. Should you need to contact the receptionist, you can find a phone next to the elevator on your floor.

If you need to use an iron, you can ask from the receptionist. TV's remote controller and wifi password will be given to you upon check in. The wifi account valid for 24-hours. Then you can get new password for the next day from the receptionist. As for the remote controller, you need to return it to the receptionist during check out.

The toilet was clean. One thing that my husband found weird and uncomfortable with was the toilet has no lock. If I am staying with a friend, I would mind too!

If you are looking for places to eat, halal or non-halal, you can easily find them around the hotel because there are rows of shop lot. If you want some snack, you can grab them at the convenient store downstairs, opens everyday until 1;30 AM except for weekends, they open 24-hours. You too can find a car-rental counter and a laundry downstairs. Parking so far, is still free parking only that during weekend, especially in the evening, the place got busy.

If you are going out and come back after 12 AM, please make sure you bring your key card because they will lock the main entrance. To open the door, you need to tap your key card.

For Muslims, the qiblat is shown to you. Just look up, and you will find it.

Check in time is 2 PM and check out time is 12:00 PM (but you are given until 1:30 PM). Check out made after 2 PM until 4:30 PM will be charged 50% of the room rate.

Among everything, I love their friendly and helpful staff the most, even the housekeeping staff were so friendly! :)

Check-in on 9 July 2014 and Check-out next day (10 July 2014)

This is my first time stay during the fasting month (Ramadhan). It is very convenience to break fasting at nearest restaurant and bought really nice local cakes.

Performing "tarawih" prayer at Masjid Assyakirin which located within walking distant and across the main road junction.

Impress with the front desk staff which have contact number for "Kek Lapis Sawarak" which able to directly deliver to hotel without any additional cost.

I also recommended to the parent that have a plan to come and visit their children that studied at University Putra Malaysia (UPM) campus Bintulu because Tune Hotel can access less then 10 minutes to university door no.2.

I have no problem to get my morning eat (Sahur) because of Tune Hotel is really near with Muslim Restaurant with a big screen to watch World Cup 2014 live match!

In conclusion, I feel very happy with the convenience and peaceful stay during Holy Ramdhan without worry about my Ibadah.

Room Tip: Prayer matt and Ion (without board) is upon request at the check-in counter only
