Review: Tune Hotel Danga Bay, Johor

We stayed at this hotel during our visit to Legoland Malaysia. After a tiring day from morning until dusk at the theme park, this hotel is an economical option to rest and refresh for the night. As the hotel's name suggest, it is located at Danga Bay, just a few kilometers from Legoland. Easily reached by car, but in our case we took a taxi from Legoland taxi bay to the hotel.
The hotel has more than 200 rooms in double, twin and quad configuration. Room rate is quite cheap, only RM67 per night. If include some add-ons such as TV and late check-out (because our return flight was at 5PM the following day, we decided to hole-up in the room for as long as we can before heading to the airport), it still cost less than RM100. Check-in was fast and efficient, we brought the printed confirmation slip and the staff immediately handed us a keycard and room number. Some facilities avalaible at the hotel, such as car parks, computers and internet, massage chair, convenience store, tour office, and a small restaurant operated by third party. There's shuttle service to Singapore too. Room's condition is predictable and standard for Tune Hotel's chain; small, standard wallpaper and decorations, comfortable bed, and clean toilet. No room amenity though, so please bring your own towel and toiletries, or buy the package from the hotel. Overall, this hotel is just what we need for a short stay.

A downside of this hotel is regarding its location, which I think a bit isolated from city center. Not much to do at Danga Bay area except some sight seeing, and during day time it is really nothing there. However this is not a problem if you have your own tranport. Just start the engine and reach JB city in less than 5 minutes. Johor Premium Outlet (JPO) is nearby too.

  1. Hi,

    How much is your taxi fare from LEGOLAND to Tune Hotels Danga Bay? Are the lockers in LEGOLAND big enough for travel luggage?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    1. Hi Grace, during our visit, only blue coloured premium taxis avalaible at the taxi bay. From Legoland to Tune Danga bay cost us RM 50. I think it was a medium size sedan like Nissan Sentra, and it fits 2 trolley bags and a kid stroller.

    1. Hi Rainman,
      We took taxi from hotel to Senai Airport. In our case I asked the hotel's counter and the staff gave me a list of taxi numbers and I made the arrangement myself. It was metered taxi, plus the airport surcharge it cost about MYR 50. Regarding taxi arrangement, I don't think they provide such service but perhaps you can ask the staff to call a taxi for you during check-out.
