As I am traveling solo on a business trip so I chosen the only available double room without window. Although it is compact but the room is clean with cool and quite air conditioning unit, and comfortable bed. Its a value for money stay.

The room interior in general and bathroom fittings - especially the showers, which are usually excellent - are inferior to other Tune hotels with the street noise more acute, leading to a restless stay. Well-located though with a superb café right below within the building.

A very comfortable hotel with clean rooms. However it is currently in need of some renovation work. Walls in the corridors and rooms are dented and scratched, covered with Tune Hotel posters advertising their "14 locations", which are now, I think, up to 43--showing you how long its been since even a minor "changing of the posters" has been done!...

This is my 3rd visit to Tune Hotel Georgetown. The room is equipped with comfortable bed and the location of the hotel is great. But there still have rooms of improvement on the cleanliness, and run down furniture.

I stayed at Tune Hotels Downtown Penang from 22/8/2014 to 24/8/2014. The pros are : 1. Great location, with a 7-11 at the ground floor of the hotel and a Starbucks and other food outlets at the next building. 2. Rooms equipped with comfortable bed, bath room equipped with hot water shower and hair dryer. 3. There is a water... More

It is always amazing whenever I checked into Tunes hotel in downtown Penang. Firstly, I am very pleased that this is the only hotel I've stayed so far that have installed both a ceiling fan and a split unit air cond in their rooms. I've stayed in different rooms on different floors once very month since March, 2014, and every... More

Better to book the room online to get cheaper price for room. The parking will cost you 6myr per entry. The carpark will be quite cramp at night so get back early. Starbucks, kopitian and nasi kandar in walking distance. A recommended if u are on budget trips. Lobby at 3rd floor, use the lift. :p

THE CONS #1. If you are a light sleeper - DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! I stayed in the tune hotel for 16 nights, during hungry ghost festival. Of all the times NOT to stay at this hotel, this is the time to not stay there. Just a few blocks from the hotel there was a massive karaoke stage... More

Stayed at the Quad Room which is a connecting double bed room inclusive of air conditioner. It was quiet clean, I like the design of the hotel. Parking space is limited but there are spaces nearby across the road.

Cant complain, basics were all met, staff was approachable and friendly. Most bang for one's money. Walking distance to Komtar & the central bus station. Plenty of foods and shopping. 7/11 on ground floor of hotel. Maybe just the towel problem, as in you cant change it for free, so you tend to use the same one during your stay... More
