Firstly the location is NOT THAT GREAT because you have to walk down a single lane passing by other residences for a short while before reaching Tune. While advertised to be very near Asok station, in the case of wet weather, accessibility will definitely be a problem. Do not expect taxis to be waiting at your doorstep either. Nonetheless, its just a short walk to Terminal 21, an outstanding and new shopping mall that offers a brand new experience in my opinion.
The hotel lobby is ridiculously small and cramped but rooms are generally clean, tidy and adequate for the average traveller. Considering the price, the hotel is okay but, as with all Tune hotels, you must factor in the additional cost of air conditioning, towels, TV and hairdryer which are NOT INCLUDED in the price you paid for.
I have stayed in Tune Hotels across various parts of Malaysia and this one will NOT be anywhere near the top of the list. Bangkok city is full of hotels (and new hotels are still popping up) and they are many other options for travellers of different budget. Unless one is a great fan of Tune Hotels, one is unlikely to return to Tune because it is a very boring accommodation. I would not want to return because there is no excitement and Tune hotel is NOTHING MORE THAN A SLEEPING PLACE - a significant contrast with the hustle and bustle of exciting Bangkok.
PS: Room service prices from the nearby restaurant are ridiculously expensive. Also note that the price paid for TV has only 10 channels, compared to the 80 channels in a regular hotel.
