Reviewed December 4, 2012

i will surely stay again at tune-hotel the next time i visit penang. stayed for 3 nights with my kids. very resonable rooms rate for 2 rooms and its affordable. for sure, i will introduce to my friends cos the location is really great. very convenient. lots of restaurant and very nice foods to eat near by. the hotel loby is big and a lot of guest have gather together watching football match. Malaysia vs Indonesia. proud to share, Malaysia won 2. having great time watching tv with peoples that we first time met. really is one malaysia. this is really a special cases. i am sure u will agree to it.

the place was strategic, comfortable yet affordable. Convenient as it was near many eateries and a short distance from Komtar and Times Square and there was a 7 E at the ground floor. Reception staff was very efficient and friendly. Parking is limited but Tune guests are entitiled to discounts at adjacent parking lots.

been staying at few TuneHotels before gave me some expectations. So I'm not gonna review the room as it's really great value for your money. The differences are; the front liners are friendly, warmth and helpful. They even gimme free trial for internet before we decide to purchase. That's cool. 3G connection in the room a bit weak so you might wanna consider to have internet. Speed wise is fine.
It was easy to go everywhere from the hotel, if you drive, parking is limited but you can park at the road side opposite the hotel. You can even extend your checkout time for only RM15. What a great deal! Go TuneHotels ^^

Stayed for one night on 22 November 2012.

Reception staff was very efficient and friendly. Value for money.

The only downside was the shortage of car park.

And you have a 7-11 outlet at the ground floor (24 hrs)

Room Tip: Ask for room 315. Good view.

Hello dear guest!

Thanks for the review.

Great to see you enjoyed your stay and that the staff looked after you throughout your stay. I have passed your comments onto the team this morning, who I know will appreciate them.

Tune Hotels offers the bare essentials; clean, comfortable bed and a great shower. It’s about creating a great slumber experience at an affordable price. Tune Hotels require extra payment for anything that is not an elemental part of a stay.

Unlike regular hotels, we do not provide similar facilities that you may find at regular hotels. Car parking facilities are not an elemental service, hence spaces are scarce.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about our hotel we are glad that you enjoyed the other parts of your stay and hope that we will have the sincere pleasure of welcoming you back soon.

Regards,
Sharon-Customer Care Manager

I was concerned that the room would be very tiny, like the bedsits in London, but was pleasantly surprised that it was large enough to not be uncomfortable. Excellent location, fantastic value for money. Service was great too. There were issues - clogged sink (within the first hour of checking in), water dripping from AC, but these were fixed pretty quickly upon giving the feedback to the front desk. Internet access (via wifi) was slow (I am used to >5Mbps) .. but I'm not sure whether this is because of Penang infrastructure in general (no FTTH infra perhaps?) or a Tune Hotel issue.

Room Tip: Although centrally located, the room that I had on the higher floor (facing away from the main road...

Good price, good hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. I request joining room and they delivered it although I have to wait 10 minutes for but it worth to wait.

Great location at the heart of George Town.

This is my 4th time staying in Tune Penang; we managed to booked for 3 nights with my wife and daughter. The room are clean and cozy.
This hotel are strategically located at downtown area (just 5 min walk from Komtar), but if you drive to Penang, you may facing limited parking space within Tune premise (RM5 per entry)
But no worry, just park your vehicle opposite to Tune Penang (across Jalan Burmah), not many parking lots but I managed to park my car everytime I visit there.
Over-night park at New World Park car park very expensive (over RM15)

Dear Tune Hotel Guest,

Thank you for completing a Trip Advisor Review on your recent visit to our hotel.

We operate on a limited service concept, which means we provide the basic; bed and shower. The rest are indeed optional, you only pay if you need them. This helps in keeping prices competitive, where guests pay for only what they need.

For non-essential items such as TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, guests only pay if they need them. Guests not using the extra facilities won't be charged for them as part of the room price. The benefit of this efficiency is passed on to the consumer providing excellent value for money and low prices. As such this explains why car parking facilities are not part of the Tune model.

Once again, thanks for being our guest and for the review.

Warm Rgds,
De Silva-Customer Care Manager
