“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Been staying with Tune Manila, but this time it is my first time to stay in Tune Makati.
I can say that the staffs are better here specially the FOs. My room is exactly the same room im expecting. I just don't like the Aircon unit making noise the whole length of my stay here. But all in all was a good stay. Plus the room service, food was great too and open 24 hours.

Room Tip: Check your aircon unit first

We have now more or less got used to the Tune Hotels formula of 'charged only for the basic room, everything else extra' formula. Fortunately, as we had booked through booking.com, in advance, online, the 'extras' like 'comfort kit' (basically a towel, a small soap and shampoo), wi fi and tv programmes were taken care of. If you book at the reception or through the hotel website, you will need to pay extra for these.

First the positives: the rooms, though small (some folks complain they are too small) are very clean, and the location is OK sort of. It does get a bit dodgy at night as the hotel entrance tends to get a tad dark and there are GROs (hookers) etc. hanging around the 'sports' restaurant located near to the entrance.

Once you have got over the 'everything extra' pricing formula, there are unfortunately a hole list of negatives with Tune Makati. Firstly, the Sports restaurant at the entrance is VERY expensive. I paid close to Php 1200 for dinner and about Php 750 for breakfast for two pax. -The staff there also seemed to care only one or two hand picked 'special' customers and we had to really fight for their attention at times. There are cheaper meal options listed at the hotel, both pasted on the counter and displayed in the room. However the cheap rates apply only if you buy the meal voucher at the reception before hand. This is not clearly indicated. We ended up going to the restaurant directly and paying a neat package for our meals. The wait staff refused to entertain us with out the vouchers. We did find some ladies of questionable repute sitting in the cafe but they did not bother us, so why comment?
- The 'Seat in Coach' tours offered at the reception are very expensive. The tours turned out to be private tours in a luxury car. We should have suspected, looking at the price, but the brochure clearly stated 'Seat in Coach tours'. Although it did work out to our advantage in the end, the 'seat in coach' mentioned on the brochure is rather misleading, to say the least.
- Taxi drop off from the hotel to the airport is a total rip off. When getting to the hotel, we took a 'coupon taxi' for Php 400 odd. Although they reception did inform us that the 'Europcar' counter in the lobby will charge too much and offered to call us a taxi, their taxi charged me Php 650 to Terminal 1. My companion was charged Php 750 the following day. That too by the ordinary white city taxi, which we understood are attached to the hotel.
- The wi fi code expires and has to be renewed on a daily basis.
- There is no telephone to call the reception and you need to go down whenever you need something.

We had a pleasant stay here in December 2012. The room was clean and a decent size. We didn't bother paying for aircon and in the first room we were given the fan didn't work but we were quickly moved to an alternative room. We paid for wifi which was good. The shower was the best we had had in weeks! It was reasonably central to places we wanted to go and we stored our luggage here for a few days (which we paid extra for) while we visited the rice terraces. A good option if you are travelling on a budget.

By far and away for a short term stay this hotel is hands down the best in its class and price.

rates change daily so book online for the best possible rate.

Rooms are smaller then the norm but what sets this hotel aside from other is you pay for what

you use ie.... so if you want wifi in your room extra cost on top of your basic room charge, if

you want t.v with cable again an added cost, aircon also an extra cost... so you can actually pic

what you want and don't want and save money

beds are awesome and super comfy however my only down side is if your staying long term

your back may not appreciate the softness of the mattress(pillows are super fluffy (soft)

showers simple with hot water.

At the bottom of this tune hotel there is a bar called "Team Insider Sports Bar" which is a great

place to have

a drink and use the free wifi..... they have an excellent happy hour here with all you can drink

local beer or draft beer daily from 5pm to 8pm for only 295p!!! awesome atmosphere with

sports on the big screens all day or you can request whatever sport you wish

(take note on Sundays at howzatt sports bar, 2blocks away 595p all you can eat/drink roast

lunch with all the fix-ens... roast lamb/pork/beef all yorkies gravies, salad bar/ soup veggies

etc!!! its a great deal for a backpacker or anyone that just wants a good full lunch with a few

beers)

Room Tip: try get room above first 3 floors and at back of the building... 800s like 813 to 818 are good

Stayed here for 10 days last May and I'm satisfied with my choice. Well, it's a you-get-what-you-pay-for hotel. I had 3 different rooms (923,405,417) because I had to stay here in different dates so I think rooms have the same sizes. I loved the night view in room 923. What I liked about the room: comfy bed, simple but clean bathroom with bidet and hot water and the safety box. Wi-fi is okay but you have to pay for it daily. If you're going in Manila and you just need a room to sleep, well this hotel's okay for you. It is well-situated in Makati: easy to get a taxi and it's near Glorietta and Greenbelt (malls). You can get there in 10mins! If you're looking for nightlife, well P.Burgos St. (clubs,discos,etc.) is just across the street! After reading some reviews I should say that NOT ALL the staff is rude. There are some friendly, nice and helpful personel too so please don't generalize.

The rooms are very tiny but clean. The bed was comfy. The bed made up for some of the other shortcomings of the hotel. I had a very pleasant stay. The shower was adequate with a decent water pressure. The hotel staff for the most part was pleasant. The immediate surrounding areas was a little to be desired but I didn't feel threatened. PS, don't trust the laundry that is in the same driveway adjacent to the hotel, they lost some of my clothes and didn't press a shirt that I paid to have pressed.
