“Unexpectedly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We have tried several Tune Hotels in Malaysia and Indonesia, so we are not new to the concept of Tune Hotel. And we expected the small rooms too. So we were peasantly surprised that their Cebu property has a decent sized room and "big" bathroom - and it was located across Ayala Center. We booked during their room sale and got a very good deal (P36!). We would have not paid extra for aircon if only the windows can be opened. The windows were locked, obviously for safety reason. It would have been better if there was a restaurant in the ground floor (common in all Tune hotels in Malaysia) and a glass door to keep the shower area enclosed (the whole bathroom gets wet after taking a bath).

Room Tip: Wait for the room sale to get great deals.

I booked this hotel expecting nothing at all. Aside from the room size and noisy AC, everything is good!

Bed is comfy, nice linens and soft pillows too

Very convenient location, across Ayala Center Cebu!.

Internet is not free but they offer a decent connection.

This is really a nice budget hotel, I just hope that the TV and Wifi will be used in hourly basis on only when in use, the same way the AC works

Will definitely go back.

This hotel is better than other expensive-pretending-to-be elegant hotel. I am really not expecting that the interior will be so good. From outside its like a regular cheap hotel even if you step on their hotel entrance. But when you get it, their lobby lobby on the upper floor where the reception area is looks like a call center recruitment hub - looks good. When we entered the room i was surprised - its small but elegant. They provide blower just infront of the CR. Their tv is huge LED television. Aircon is new and functioning well. Door lock is e-card. There is a safebox and clothes rack. What turns me on a lot is the bed, it is very comfy. soft matress and pillow. Clean and soft comforter. The lighting on the room makes it so elegant. You can choose from yellow and white light. o just turn on the light on the headboard of the bed. The Showeroom is also good, it is clean and elegant as well. Its door are made from glass, it also has a shower enclosure.

Location is great with 7/11 on the ground floor and is very close - 5 mins walk to Ayala Mall.

See it yourself. book online and personalze your booking. You would not hesitate cause it's not expensive :)

Tune Cebu best selling point is its location; opposite Ayala Mall.

Tune hotel setup and design is pretty standard. It is almost the same which ever Tune you go to.

Served by a non-smiley supervisor, check-in is pretty slow. They seems like they have problem locating my reservation.

One thing strange is that their shower has no door. So the water easily spill into the toilet.

Anyway, it is still a good place to stay but the add-on sometimes really irks me.

Our second stay at a Tune hotel. This one better than the one in Penang (newer).

Room was clean and functional, if a little small. Beds were a little soft to our taste, but still quite good. Location was pretty central, and if you want to shop, there's a huge mall across the street (nothing special, your typical big NA-style mall with lots of restaurants). The man at the reception was very friendly and helpful. Overall good stay.

However, it is the concept of the Tune that is a little annoying. Want tv? Pay extra. Want aircon? pay extra. Want Wifi? Pay extra. Want a towel and soap? Pay extra. I can understand for some of these, but less for others. Then again, I guess it does help to reduce the waste for some of these.

Even though it was good, we still decided to try something else for our next pass-through in the city.

Ants in the room, toilet not sanitary, street noise...to make matters worse, if you check in for more than one night, you have to pay extra for air con, wifi,Toweks and TV.

I have never experienced such a poorly run place and the rooms are tiny. no closet, no place to put your luggage. Have to take turns going in and out of the room is so small.

Room Tip: make sure you are fully aware of what you are booking

The weird red and white decor turned me off, the tiny rooms made me claustrophobic, and the doorless shower flooded the bathroom because of the super slow drain. I reserved through agoda and got a good price, I thought. I like having a destination to take the luggage to when I land and the hotel location was very convenient, but didn't block for my whole stay sensing I might not like the place. After one night, I walked down the block, crossed the street, and got a fantastic walk-in rate at the Hotel Elizabeth that wasn't available online. Thats a real hotel and I was glad for my decision. There a plenty of hotels in that immediate area competing so use the Tune wifi and find another place for anything other than a fast stopover.
