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

Hey Jason, We are happy you liked our hotel. We are ideally located, clean and our rates are a bargain, especially if you book early in advance. We offer the basics and additional towels can be purchased at RM 6 at the front desk. We have great team, and I'm sure they would be able to allocate a room away... More

Stayed there for 2 nights and its very comfortable. I took the comfort package but I rarely used the AC, as the fan alone is comfortable enough for me to sleep. The most of the attractive sites are within walking distance and there is a bike for rent service nearby and laundry service just opposite of the road.

It's not the Ritz, but it's perfectly acceptable. The rooms as you can image are quite small and minimalist, but the aircon worked and the beds were clean and comfortable. We had interconnecting rooms. The hotel is in a great location and walking distance to everything. Recommended.

This is the second time I stayed at this Tune Hotel. Room is small but good enough for one person. The room is clean and tidy, great shower, comfortable double bed, safety box, ceiling fan. Excellent value for money if you book early when they have promotional rates. Location is pretty good, close to bus stop, food court, star bucks,... More

Smooth check-in in the early afternoon, but the room we were allocated has a noisy fan. Asked Level-2 lobby for a switch, and was given a room next door. Still the ceiling fan was noisy, but with a more tolerable rhythm. Other than that, no complaints on this particular Tune inn. Breakfast place near Jalan Nagor was terrific, same with... More

Fyi, Penang has free wifi in the city so you don't have to get your own data plan. ok, back to Tune hotel. What I like about the room is it has everything you need, all... More
