The hotel is fine, nothing to shout about. Service was okay. Room was slightly tight as I had to squeeze myself for my prayer routine. Located near komtar, and with a few makan place surrounding the hotel, and even 7-11 on the ground floor, it was easy for customers when they are in hurry.

Great shower and great quality sleep. Other than that there is nothing to shout about. Not as good as the other Tune Hotel (my experiences in Danga Bay and Waterfront Kuching). The room looks old and not so clean. Nonetheless, Tune Hotel is well-known for its hotels' strategic location!

Been here recently (April 2015). The hotel located at Burmah Road. Not far away from Komtar and other surrounding mall. Therefore, we can get easy access to food and shopping by foot or car. As Usual, all tune hotel will equipped with the most basic in room service such as nice bed, hot shower, high pressure water, toilet and fan.... More

I stayed in Tune Hotel in Downtown Penang in early April 2015 for short vacation. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. It's located quite near to Komtar, or the city center of Penang, you can basically travel to anywhere in Penang easily from this hotel. Although I stayed in a windowless single room, maybe not the best room in... More

I don't know how this hotel is receiving high ratings. The room is really really really TINY. The air con doesn't even work, it is noisy at night, the staff members are rude and didn't seem to care. If you have young kids travelling with you, please cross this hotel off your list! We booked this hotel for three nights... More

TheTune hotels, let you opt for or out for certain items such as WiFi, TV, Linen and Air conditioning. It is close to Kmtar, the bus terminus and the shopping centre as well as other restaurants nearby. It is within walking distance to the bus terminus and shopping centres.

Interesting concept. You pay for a room, and you're given a towel and some shower gel in a bag. If you want more towels, a window, air-con, wifi, a TV, a hairdryer or if you need to storage your luggage, you pay extra. Wifi you pay for a 24 hour period. Air-con you pay for 12 or 24 hrs use....

Probably most of travelers are familiar with Tune hotel policy where you pay for the room only and everything else is charged extra, including toiletries, towels, Wi-Fi and AC. So knowing that, you shouldn't be surprised if you don't get any of that if you don't purchase it extra, but even with that in mind, the staying experience wasn't all... More

We stayed at Tune Downtown Penang for 4 weeks. We wanted to experience Chinese New Year and found Tune to be the perfect place. We had a room up high on a corner and were able to see all the fireworks around us from the windows. Some were exploding in front of us as we watched. As with all Tune... More
