Old habits die hard (apologies to Bruce Willis) especially if the first time experience is a pleasant one and worth sharing. This time, I had to have an emergency meeting in Cagayan de Oro so guess what? I booked a stay with Tune Hotel at CM Recto Avenue. This time, Tune Hotel seem to have construction ongoing (hopefully for better amenities to guests). The receptionist was kind enough to recommend higher rooms (8th to 9th floors) to escape from the construction noise. Rooms are clean and spartan (as it was before).
Do not attempt to work inside the room. The rooms are good for getting a rest, sleeping and turning in after a day's work or visit. There is no space for a table and chair, nor do they provide table and chair for guests. You can do your work at Starbucks at Centrio or adjacent to Limketkai both of which are a short walk away.
Bring mosquito repellant before you go out especially at night. The polluted creed immediately beside Tune Hotel (and this is beyond the control of the hotel) is infested with mosquitoes waiting for guests to come out to get a bite. The relative solitude of the hotel could be there no longer. The location is directly adjacent to a site where SM Mall will be. It could also be good since a walk to the mall would be shorter.
