“Great Stay!”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

I stayed over on a tuesday night on 6 May 2014 and found it a pleasant stay! I had to pay 120thb for early check in (any time before 1pm) Room was big because there isn't any wardrobe but hangers are present for you to hang your clothes.

Do bring along your toothbrush and toothpaste as they only provide liquid shampoo,soap bar and 2 towels.

Location wise was good as it was only around 10min walk to lee gardens plaza which was where most roadside stores are located.

overall a pleasant stay!

I stayed on a Sunday, heading into Thailand, Agoda, USD 12.34; I stayed four days later, heading back, Thursday, also Agoda, USD 27.29. The walk-in rate for Thursday was USD 33.87; previous day: USD 36.75. Just like Air Asia, prices move up and down like a yo-yo with no apparent rhyme or reason (but there probably is one!) For USD 12.34 this was the best hotel I've ever stayed in; for USD 36.75 ... not quite! I was warned it would be no frills, but there were plenty: free TV, wi-fi in the room, shampoo, soap, towel, hair dryer, excellent shower, hot water, shower head that worked, functioning water bidet; spotlessly clean; good quality bed-linen and pillows. My only add-on was ThBaht50 for overnight secure parking, which I didn't object to. Two tiny "potential" problems, however. First, the aircon in both rooms: no remote but simplified controls at the door (part of the problem). In the first room there were two choices, a fan that blew air remorselessly and brought the wind chill factor close to the death zone on Everest, or amazonian swamp sweat: I alternated, two hours of one, two of the other, with a walk to the door either frozen, or glistening with sweat like ... fill in your preference. In the second room, four day later - different room - the fan was fine, but the compressor, just outside the window, sounded like a tractor. Either the roar of the tractor woke you, or the deathly quiet that followed when the "auto" clicked in, got you. Second potential problem, some of the rooms face a blank wall, two metres away! (But you can avoid this by asking for rooms 18-27 on a higher floor, they look out the back: quiet, Chinese temple, trees with black-naped orioles, and no wall). Reception staff? Could easily get jobs in a five star hotel. I doubt if the aircon problem is universal, and if it's not, for an excellent value hotel - depending on the price you get! - you couldn't do better. And for a same standard European dinner, should that take your fancy, De Van Cuisine's Thai Baht 399 four course Menu C, is just too ludicrously tasty to miss. (It is on the map at reception: 20 minute walk; five minute cab ride.) USD 25 for excellent dinner and room, difficult to beat. But If I'd had Sunday's room rate, on Thursday, and no tractor aircon, that's what I'd have got!

Room Tip: Rooms 18-27, high floor, decent view.

Like most of it's sister hotels within the chain, this Tune does what it says on the can and does it well: basic but immaculately clean no-frills rooms with fast Wi-Fi, powerful air-con and monsoon showers with good water pressure backed up with brisk but efficient service. Unlike the others, this one not only has larger than usual rooms but ignores the annoying rules on reception towel collection and return, with the icing on the cake being the immensely charming set of staff who go beyond the call of duty to help.

Not flexible in check in time before 2pm need to pay 120 baht and check out time too early 11am.
Air cond leaking and after that no electricity -trip. Not really a budget hotel but a no frill hotel. Everything is about money -you have to pay for it.

Very nice and big room for budget hotel. Also good and nice front desk..
The only thing is there is no hot water kiosk at every level or inside the room. You need to ask the fornt desk if you need the hot water..

After staying a few nights on Koh Phi Phi, and not only putting up with over priced hotels and getting no sleep because a few bars and a handful of kids partying until dawn, any hotel would have been good.
From the moment we walked in the door we felt welcomed, quick efficient reception with a smile. Room very clean, large and uncluttered, but with enough hanging space etc for a couple of nights. Bed very comfortable and I did not here one sound during the night and I am a very light sleeper, in fact the wife was so taken by the comfy pillow I had to make sure she did not pack one.
It is located along with many other hotels very near to shopping, railway station and many eating places. Highly recommended.
