Dear Guest,

Thanks for the review.

We offer the basic; a comfortable bed and hot shower for a wonderful slumber experience, always located centrally, all at extremely affordable prices. Our rooms are space-challenged, but they're impeccably clean and perfectly adequate as "crash pads".

Our limited service concept encourages guests to spend less within the hotel itself, driving more spend outside the hotel.

Keeping things clean, comfy and compact helps in regulating affordable pricing, thus, translating them to saving for guests.

Thank you so much for the feedback and we happy to be part of making your stay a worthwhile experience.

See you soon.

Rgds,
Sharon De Silva - Customer Care Manager

I go to Penang for holiday every year, this was my 3rd yrs stayed at Tune Hotel Penang.

My requirement quite simple, I only need a place to rest and sleep, so an adequate room size, en-suite bathroom, clean, safe, convenience location, comfortable bed, with air-con, and most importantly is CHEAP. Tune Hotel fulfill all my requirement.

I only do my booking during their promotion period, was paying about RM60 with 24hrs air-con + towel kit for TWO nights.

I'll definitely stay there again!!!

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors room and not facing the noisy main road.

So far, my only concern was the room is too small.. You can find more spacious room with the budget.. But the most interesting part was the bed.. It's so comfort and relaxing.. Good for rest after a day tour/sightseeing.. Service was very good.. Keep it up Tune!! :-)

All you need for an accommodation is for it to be clean, clean and located just nice for you to move around. Tune Hotel has it all! :)

Located just within minutes of walks from KOMTAR (bus terminal, government offices, central of Georgetown) and on the main road of Jalan Burma (where buses heading to northern west side of the island including Tanjung Bungah and National Park)... very very good location!!

7-11 just below, make it very easy to get what you needed!

Mattress is awesome!! Had very good night sleep with such a low price!!

Room Tip: i prefer a room with window, cost slightly more but good to see outside.. it would be very depressed...

We experienced tune hotel for one night.
The ceiling fan at speed number 3 was suitable.
We enjoyed the power shower and water was really hot and as I remember this was my first time I see very good water heating set.

Room Tip: good money saving with good service

Very good location cause in downtown near food shop and food place.

It's good to start for seeing around old town.

Just walk 10 min from Komtar I like this place it's very cheap and easy

The badthing is too far from the Airport about 1 hour and don't have any bus from the hotel to Komtar

Only walk back to Komtar Only
