“No Table or Chair Inside the Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The room here is really small. You can’t find a single table or chair inside your room. The space is relatively small if you’re a tall man. For couples-I think the only place you’ll go is the bed. It reminded of the the hotel we stayed in Singapore. It’s really a budget hotel wherein if not maintained well it will become a hostel in the near future. The only plus about this property is that it is brand new, it’s clean and fresh. The bathroom is a little weird since it’s half open leading to the shower so water easily lands on the area near the toilet bowl floor. The room has a huge ceiling fan and the ac works fine. The location is a good since it’s close to Ayala Mall and a 7-11 convenience store is just waiting for you downstairs. Expect the basic services to be achieved when staying here.

Room Tip: The rooms facing Ayala Mall is a bit noisy

Tune Hotels has a good concept especially for budget travelers like me...pay only for amenities you need. Although the rooms come cheap, there is no compromise when it comes to quality of the room and amenities, not to mention the courteous and helpful staff they have. The rooms are fairly sized, bed is comfortable, large flat-screen TV, clean toilet and bath with hot and cold shower.

Tune Hotels Cebu is conveniently located near transportation terminal and very close to Ayala Mall.

Tune Hotels is known for charging separately for amenities it offers and for me, it was ideal because I am a budget traveler.

But inspite of it being a budget hotel, the sleep quality is not compromised as they have a big bed and the shower was also good. The rooms were clean and the space efficiently managed.

I booked online via their website and was able to get the room for Php 1091 (USD 26) which included a towel and toiletries, 12 hours air conditioning and 24 hours television (-a big flat screen TV).

You can also book this hotel cheap at booking.com and agoda, complete with amenities.

The hotel is located in front of Ayala Mall (famous mall centrally located in Cebu) and has a 7-11 store at the ground floor.


I stayed at Tune Hotel Downtown KL and was not disappointed so I lso booked at Tune in Cebu. Both are highly recommended for budget travelers like me.

Super clean, Prime location, right next to the Ayala Shoping Center.
I found this hotel very interesting. They let you customize your stay there. There, You are not forced to pay a high price for a room with features that you don't need. In other hotel you might have everything included for a much higher price but except for WiFi you might not use all of them. At Tune Hotel, you pay low base price for the room and pay for options that you will need/use.
Highly recommended place to stay in Cebu.

I stayed at Tune Hotel's property in Pattaya and, due to a good experience, decided to stay with them here in Cebu.

My room in Cebu was identical to the one in Pattaya. That means, expect the room to be small (with the bed taking up 70% of the space) but efficient and very clean.

Compared to most budget hotels in Cebu, the one is a bargain and the quality is very high.

For those not familiar with Tune Hotel's concept, guests are required to pay for most things they get free elsewhere...like the TV, towels, A/C and Wi-Fi. This helps keep your costs down and the hotel benefits from lower overhead. A win-win situation!

It's location is first rate, being in the affluent Ayala area across from Ayala Mall. As you walk towards the mall, you should see a jeepney terminal to the left. There, you will find public transport fanning throughout the city. There is also a 7-11 literally next door.

I hope Tune Hotel will build more hotels in Cebu and the Philippines in general.

The hotel is about 5-10mins walk from Ayala Center Cebu. Taxis are readily available. The rooms, though small are clean with very comfortable beds and pillows. The bed itself can actually accommodate 2 adults and a small kid. There is a 7-eleven at the ground floor. This hotel is also ideal for families on a budget.
