“Valu for money”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

With the price I paid (USD 15)its really value for money, room without any TV and window but with a fan, lobby on second floor. Location is convenience food, food food, behind hotel, front by the side there is a food court, walking distance you have a supermarket. Public transport to town is nearby. Room was dusty with the sink water flow very slow. As always you need to pay for amenities here towel, AC etc. Overall worth for a short stay.

Room Tip: Request far from lift

Stay here for one night. Double bed room without window. The check-in procedure really fast. Just show them a confirmation slip then the key room will be issued to you immediately. This hotel I think don't have TV inside room since my room don't have one. The air-condition & fan work properly but when the light switch on it generate a sound. The bathroom is OKAY and I really like to have a shower at the room. The water come out so fast. The hot water also work properly. If you bring your own car, there's parking lot provide with charges. RM6/entry if I'm not mistake. But, since I take flight to Penang, I just use public transport to travel around the island. To this hotel from airport quite easy. Take Rapid Penang 102 from the airport and said you want to alighting at the hotel.

Room Tip: My room had no window. So, better you book a room with window so you can choose a higher floor to ge...

The hotel itself is 15 minutes walking from the main eating places and attractions of the Georgetown, BUT! Penang is the place to travel by tour agencies or rapidpenang buses! In this case Tune is the brilliant place: service is nice, staff is helpful and hospitable - thank You, guys, a lot! - room are clean and cozy under the chain brand! If in Georgetown - this is the place to stay for sure)

Room Tip: do not take a room without window if theer is a window availability

Tune Hotels has a modular approach to hotel stays - you pay for what you want. Basic rooms without a window are least expensive, but we chose one with a window. After paying for a Towel and Toiletries Kit, and 24 hours of Air Conditioner use, it came to RM 144 for 3 nights!

Though new, the hotel is well known, and the airport taxi took us there quickly. Check in took hardly a minute, and the single person at the counter handed over our room card, and towel kit. Check out was even quicker - we just put our room card and towel on the counter, and he nodded. Since there is no restaurant or room service, there was nothing else to pay for. We'd booked the hotel's van for 6.30 am to go to the airport, and the driver appeared in the lobby at exactly that time.

Besides efficiency and economy, there's not much to say. The rooms are tiny, leaving about 18 inches of space on three sides of the double bed. There's a small desk that folds out from a wall. No intercom in the room - there's one on every floor, near the lifts. The bathroom is small and clean, and the Towel Kit (RM 6 each - we took 2) contains a small soap, a tube of shampoo, and the towel. The towel has to be returned.

There's a lobby with a TV, ironing board, and massage chairs. The rooms don't have a TV or WiFi. You can use WiFi in the lobby, for 30 minutes each day. The most useful thing was a rack of free brochures, pamphlets and maps that you could pick up - some were very useful.

It was the first time me and my partner staying at Tune Hotel. It's only RM 120.++ for two nights including some add-ons, which we found so cheap compared to the hotel's and room's condition. The check-in process was done in a speed of light, the room was very clean and the bed was comfy too. Ours was standard room without windows, it was quiet small to perform our prayers but not really a big problem. You can choose bigger room with many add-ons option like air-cond, TV & WiFi if you want. We only request for additional air-cond because we planned to go out most of the times. The more you save on a room, the more you can spend on food and shopping right.;)

The best part about staying at Tune Hotel is the location is very strategic and near to city's attraction. Famous hawker foods like Roti Canai Jalan Transfer, Nasi Kandar Beratur, Nasi Kandar Line Clear & Chowrasta Market are all in walking distance. There's even cafe's & 7eleven down the hotel. The parking is rm6 per entry, which i found quiet pricey since we like to go in and out few times a day, Therefore we opt for street parking. Just buy the Penang parking coupon book at the Fujifilm Photo Studio alongside the hotel road, and you can use it not only around the hotel but all over the Penang Island. Only rm 0.40 cent for 1/2 hours. In conclusion, the stay at Tune Hotel totally worth my every penny. I'll definitely come again and love to try more Tune Hotels at other cities. Highly recommended!
