Tune Hotel is new, clean and very affordable - I paid only 684 Philippine Pesos (roughly 16 USD) for a basic room with 12 hour airconditioning and cable tv as add-ons. The room was small and very basic, the bed was clean and comfortable, and the water pressure from the shower was good. A 7-11 store at the entrance is a welcome sight so you don't have to go somewhere to buy necessities like water, snacks, toiletries, etc.
The location was in a dark, derelict and seedy area of Manila with girlie bars, pimps, and people sleeping in the sidewalk. Practice extra caution when walking around at night. Better still, hail a taxi in front of the hotel and go somewhere else at night and just return to the hotel to sleep.
Get a taxi and tell them to go to Mabini and Remedios Streets. The hotel is near a BPI Bank and a Mini-Stop Convenience Store. Tell the taxi to drop you at the 7-11 store because that is where Tune Hotel is.
