Since it's just a night stay for my friend and i while we cant check into USM hostel on 20th, we decide to booked a room at tunehotels.com downtown penang via online. No add-on since we have everything in our luggage, just needed a bed & a room to stay for that night prior to spending 3 weeksa time at USM Hostel for our distance learning classes and exam. This stay just a simple and comfy stay for me & a friend with cheap and affordable price. Its near to town and surrouded with foods around. It will always my first choice if comes to budgetting hotel. Will definitely choose it when i travel with family & friends :)

my friends and i stayed at tune hotel downtown penang from 14 January- 16 January 2013. i booked last May 2012 during promotion period and it cost me around RM14 including tax (usd 5) per night per room for 2 people. the price is extremely cheap for budget hotel but looked like 3 star hotel. the bed was awesome and comfortable.
tips: book only what u want. for example, i don't take any comfortable package (tv or wi-fi) or any other packages that they offered, i chose only the basic things. have a pleasant stay everyone !

This is the most terrible hotel I have ever stay, the room looks like haunted for some times, floor sandy and dirty, room full of human body smell.

You can see some pictures I posted.

Rm 100 hotel condition like this huh, terrible, water in bathroom keep occasionally dripping water in the midnight, I'm not sure what happen and probably you could guess

Blanket like never washed, one word sucks.

I enjoy a clean room, bed and bathroom every time I travel. Tune hotels have met my expectation. However the most enjoyable stay was in Penang where there are so many places to try out Malaysian food. From road side stalls to shop houses to alfresco dining all within walking distance. Shops are quaint and souvenirs are aplenty. I am eagerly planning to go back for a longer stay.
