“Great budget hotel near Ayala Mall, Cebu City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

This Tune Hotel is located directly across the road from Ayala Mall in Cebu City. A large mall that provides shopping and great food choices. This Tune Hotel is budget priced with very friendly and efficient service. The location within Cebu City puts it next to a KTV bar and a short taxi ride from SM Mall Cebu. All up this Tune was clean, showers hot and easy checkin/checkout process. Its easy to travel around with taxi's and local bus services near bye. I was on a high floor which offered a great view of Cebu City. The location is safe and about a twenty minute taxi ride to the airport. Overall A+

Room Tip: Get a room not near the lift if you want sleep

My whole family stayed here for 1 weeks last Feb 2013. The room is so cheap $28 bucks per day. The laundry service is so cheap too, kinda paying $1.80 for load for 3 boys. It's so close to Ayala Mall where all the pretty girls are DAMN !
No fancy restaurant or elaborate lobby. Washroom kinda small and no cabinets. There's a safe though but for $28 - that a deal.

The Tune hotel is a good stay for those on a budget. While I booked online and not direct with the hotel I got a package deal and did not have to "choose" all the amenities of my room. If you book directly you will have many choices of the room and amenities available to you.

The room we had was small but fine for the two nights we were there. We had a rental car and parked right at the hotel as well. The Ayala Mall is right across the street for shopping and restaurants. There is a 7/11 convenience store right at the hotel which proved very nice for our stay.

The staff was efficient and helpful. The hotel is kept neat and clean.

A good value stay near a mall!

I call this the essential hotel because all you have are the essentials. An air conditioned room with a double bed, TV and bathroom. That's it. And for a traveler with a budget that is more than enough. The room is a bit cramped though and movement can be a challenge. The location is excellent... near Ayala Cebu and with a convenient store below the hotel. I cannot stress the importance of waking up in the middle of the night and getting coffee anytime I want to. The staff could use a little courtesy training though... I remember going to the internet area near the reception desk and was not even greeted by the receptionist, although no big deal. Overall, if you are on a budget, this is a hotel with great value.

Upon arrival at Tune Hotels Cebu City the polite security guard will advise you to check in at the 2nd floor.
Like all Tune Hotels (in Asia), accomodation is very basic, you pay for what you need, from airconditioning, wi-fi, towel and toiletries. which you can prepay when you book online. Taxis are very accessible and readily available in front of the hotel. Hungry? Just cross the road to Ayala Center. Forgot/need something, there's a 7-11 at the ground floor. Pretty decent hotel if you just need a place to sleep and you are out all day. Also, as with our experience with Tune Hotels KL and KK, TH Cebu City is not particular if you have a small child, they dont charge extra for as long as your child shares the same bed with parents. Complementary newspaper is available at the lobby.

We booked through booking.com and had towels, aircondition (VERY noisy though), soap, wifi (very fast), soap etc included in the price. Normally you pay for what you need so if you do not need a towel you do not buy one etc and save some money (and the environment).

The hotel and rooms themselves are not exactly cozy but clean, modern and well maintained. The rooms are not spacious but big enough.

We used the hotel as a transfer hotel i.e. when transferring between the airport and the piers (to take the boat to the other islands). The distance to the airport is approximately 30 minutes by taxi and to the piers approximately 10 minutes by taxi.

The service at the hotel was very quick, friendly and good.

There is a 7-eleven at the entrance of the hotel which is nice if you arrive late and need a night snack or similar. We did not really have time to explore the surroundings of the hotel but it seems to be located in a very central location.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise but feel that you need to have the aircondition running all night you...

Check In at 1600hrs... asked for my ID and I gave them my ID and before welcoming me to the hotel, he said that my check in date is on April 13 and I was not suppose to check in but booking made to be check in on April 11 and after careful check and found out he made a mistake then before saying anything, he said to me that Check Out Time is 11am. Before even getting the key card, I already advised to leave on time. What a welcoming statement! I realize I made a mistake in the booking by not requesting for another day of aircon & wifi and I mentioned to charge me for it and instead of doing a careful check on my booking, he asked me to pay for 2days. Goodness is only 1600hrs and you are asleep in your work!!! Wake up!!!
