“Good Value for the location.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I stayed in the Tune hotel near Paddington for two nights in January.

The hotel is located about a 5 minute walk away from Paddington station. First impressions are that it is new and modern. Check in went well, although we arrived an hour prior to the scheduled check in time and to get our room early cost us £5.

As other reviewers have pointed out some of the basic expectations you have in a hotel room are charged for in this chain. We paid I believe £8.50 extra to get towels, tv, a hair dryer, safe use, and Internet. The towels came in a paper bag with handles and had shampoo and soap. Given that most hotels in England seem to charge around £ 10 a day for Internet this charge did not bother.

We had a twin room which was very tight to move around. The bathroom also was quite small. There was no shaver plug in the bathroom. The room while facing the street was very quiet. We found it a challenge to get the temperature down to a comfortable level.

Check out time is 10am. We paid £15 to extend to 1pm.

This was a long trip and our stay at this hotel was at the midpoint of our trip so we needed to do laundry. The hotel is conveniently located to a laundrette which is just around the corner which offered a 'service wash' for £11, with a turnaround time of 3 hours.

Dealings with the front desk were pleasant, they were extremely helpful and accommodating.

Overall given the price, the location, and the appearance of this hotel I highly recommend it for a short stay.

Fantastic location 5 mins walk from paddington station. Tiny rooms but very clean and compact, perfect for just a place to sleep. You have to pay extra for towels, tv & hair dryer, but still great value for money being so central. You can hear the tubes but not enough to disturb sleep. Would def stay here again.

I generally stay at 4-5 star hotels, but because of my brief stay in London and the cost of hotels in the city I opted for the Tune Hotel - The best decision I made the whole trip!
The hotel was clean, more like spotless, and in a very convenient location. I took the express train from the airport, and followed the signs to Praed street, walked about 5-7 minutes and the hotel was on the right hand side. I arrived early, and got my room right away. I asked for directions to 5-6 different locations, and was provided a map, where the front desk agents took the time to circle all my locations and clearly explain the directions. They were pleasant to interact with and extremely professional!I would recommend this hotel for longer stays as well, just keep in mind that you are getting the basics - a small room (I booked one with a window, which I recommend), wireless (Payable at time of booking), TV with an array of channels and a small (And very, very clean) bathroom with shower. If you plan on being out most of the day - this is the place for you. If you plan on spending hours on end in the hotel room, go for the 4-5 star with all the amenities.The customer service at the hotel was superb! I nominate them for writing the customer service manual for all! While the hotel does not have a restaurant, they have a very small snack area where you can get coffee/tea/juice and some basic snacks. There are restaurants/shops/supermarket right out the door!

Room Tip: Book a room with a window. The rooms are small, so if you are traveling with friends I would recomme...

This was my first stay at a Tune Hotel and would recommend it to anyone. The price of the rooms is very resonable. The check in was very quick and friendly helpful staff. The room was modern and very clean. I was staying alone but the only down side was if there were two of you the bed was against one wall. The bathroom was newly tiled and a had a great power shower. The distance is also great for the West End. A must for any future nights away in London.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a room with a window as you maybe in the basement.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for three nights really pleased with this hotel, they are in a great location only minutes away from Edgware tube station and within walking distance to oxford street. We read some of the reviews on here before we booked some people did mention about how small the rooms are yes they aren't overly big but had everything we needed and enough space to store are bags and move about.!.The staff are also really helpful and friendly and will help you with anything they can. So if your looking for somewhere to stay that's clean modern and with helpful staff and in a good location to explore London we would recommend this hotel.
