This so called Tune hotel requires ALOT of tuning. We stayed in a queen size bed room. The room is VERY SMALL. Just a queen bed, barely have enough rooms for our...

    When you pay this sort of money you just know it's going to be poor. We went into our room and found a nice amount (10-15) of ants on our bed which made me think when was it last changed! We got moved to next door which was ant free! Very noisy building at night and with the thin walls...

    Its definitely a budget hotel and I think its in a nice spot. You can have a good sleep (I was on 7th floor) and the shower's great. 7-Eleven is at the ground floor if you need a bite or a drink anytime. But it'll be tight for 2 adults and 2 kids in a single room, better get the...

    A quick 2 night stay before my trip to Bangkok. This hotel's staff set it apart from similar budget hotels. Rooms are basic but beds are fabulous and everyone from housekeeping to front desk is professional and welcoming. It is my "go to" budget hotel in Asia. Always delivers a great value stay!

    Official Description (provided by the hotel)
    Staying true to our unique no frills concept, we provide you a good night's sleep at outstanding value. Our hotels come with high quality beds, power showers, 24-hour security system, and are conveniently located near transportation hubs and popular local attractions. Unnecessary costs are kept at bay by eliminating facilities that you might not need such as swimming pools, gyms, spa rooms etc. Stay within walking distance to the famous dining places of George Town like the famous Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow. Penang's most famous beach, Batu Ferringhi, is half an hour's drive away from our hotel. The famous hawker centre along Gurney Drive is a must try, and so is the New World Park located right next door to us. ... more   less
