I've about had it with Tune Hotels and their sister company, Air Asia. For the most part, they are not worth the savings based on the hassle and lack of accountability they provide.
HOWEVER, the Cebu hotel is the only one I would stay in again. I've stayed there twice now and service seems to still be good. Unlike Manila which has gone from average to flat out bad, Cebu is still OK. Wifi was relatively fast and always on and the staff was helpful. I do think it's a bit expensive for being located in a second-tier city in the Philippines, but such is life.
This is just a room to sleep. I was meeting people the entire day, so I didn't worry about not having a desk or other issues. Bed is comfy enough. The best part about Tune Hotels are their nice shower heads; you can't get much better with a budget hotel.
Overall, the hotel is clean and very well located right across from the Ayala Mall and its endless food and shopping offerings.
