if you plan to have budget trip with your family to Penang, Tune Penang is the right place to choose to rest and stay. The hotel is located right at the food center in Macalister street. Walking distance to shopping complex. Convenient for travel by public transport, they don't have to worry about distance to Tune Hotel. Very near... not... More

After touring the flagship Tune Hotels location in Kuala Lumpur a few years ago, I decided to give the Penang location a try. What an immense disappointment! Dirty room, scuzzy shower, plugged bathroom sink, which drains slowly. During the first two days of my stay, housekeeping did not attend to my room despite my leaving the "make up room" card... More

Is a worth your money when staying in Tune Hotel easy to do your shopping, eating and entertainment your family to have a good time, just beside the hotel you can enjoy the local Penang food the best in Malaysia.Shopping is as easy as walking distance or taxis are always at the door step.

The hotel was located in a convenient spot on the edge of George town. The staff were very efficient and helpful. Room was very clean though air con leaked when on. Bed was super comfortable. Taxi tout downstairs annoying. I found my own taxis out the front. Make sure to agree on prices before starting journey.

I wanted a room with aircon (12 hours is enough), towels, soap, WiFi, and a small writing desk. By the time you add up the cost of all the extras, it actually cost more than the place I moved to after being dissatisfied here, and the rooms much smaller. But if all you need is the basic room, and you... More

You just need a good comfy bed and a nice hot shower after a long day walking along the streets of Georgetown. Tune Hotels on Burmah Road provides just that, and it's very clean to boot. Of course the little extras like towels and shower gel are not free, but you can certainly make do without them - there's a... More

The location is in a strategic area, bus station just opposite , 10 minutes walking distance to KOMTAR and hawker centre or food stall just stone throw away from the hotel.
