I booked on various promotional rates for a few days, from THB 199 - THB 599.
It's kinda hard locating the place they should do something better rather than a small sign as previous comment pointed out.
So glad that BTS Asoke is not even a 5 mins walk but i don't see any 7-11 around which is a shame and there's only 1 restaurant & street stall in the area you gonna walk out the alley for more.
They just opened in Asoke a few days before I checked in, there's a tint of newly renovated smell but not a problem for me. Everything else is just as good ol'Tune in other cities EXCEPT:
We reached at 11am but the check in time is not until 2pm, so we decided to hang around at Terminal 21(thank god) and stash our bags but reception asked for THB 80/bag!? I know this is a pay-as-u-go concept but hello we are checking in its like a 3 hours time frame and you are collecting $ from us?! At Tune Asoke if u want to keep your bags with them it's chargeable after 6pm (or was it after 6 hours I can't rmb) and that was fine. It was really a big turn off I don't have this issue with the other Tune. Why the double standards?
At a point I was even wondering will having them to call a cab for me incur charges? Luckily reception didn't ask $ for this and was helpful, phew!
If you got the rate at > THB499 I would suggest don't bother at all unless you are a low maintenance person who doesn't need AC, Wifi, b/f, luggage storage. Upon all these addons, you can easily get a better place just nearby with lotsa life, eats, 7-11, unlimited AC, I can go on and on.
All in all, if I can get THB199 - 399's rate the next time I wouldn't hesitate to stay again else I just can't be bothered.
