I stay in Cebu reguarly, normally in the IT Park, however for a change thought i would try one of the new budget hotels, springing up all over the rapidly developing city. Tune was a good choice, less than two mintues walk from the Ayala and within easy reach of the IT Park , and other destinations. Firstly I was supprised when i arrived to see hundreds of builders swarming around, I was a little concerned that the hotel wasnt even open. A security guard appeared and informed me to take the lift to the second floor reception. When the lift doors opened, i was supprised at the size of the foyer, certainly a waste of space, good size for a litle coffee shop i immediately thought. The receptionist was polite and helpful but it was then that i noticed everything was an add on, Aircon, TV, Wifi even the towel. I'd failed to read this when booking through Agoda, infact i dont think your advised. I was happy as the ladt informed me that as i had booked by Agoda, i had the comfort pack for free. Free, i love free things, and went to te room oblivious. Personally i found the room excellent while the view from our window, looked out onto a flat area, and the workmen, the TV and bathroom certainly were of a good standard. I did notice silly little attention to detail things, the toilet lid was on back to front, so each 'ECO' flush was a full flush, the table was falling off of the wall, and the safe was not secured to anything. We used our 'rented' towel and took an excellent shower, and met friends for dinner. We arrived back at the hotel late, and looked forward to a comfortable night, in the loverly bed, my wife loving the quilt. HOWEVER at 0130hrs with a loud CLUNK the ac went off, as we'd used our 12hrs. The 12hrs is only from the point of check in, not 12hrs of use. I Didnt like - The shower flooding the bathroom, the 12hrs AC, the 'Gimmicky' add ons. I Did like (love) - The bed, the quilt, the location, the price.
