Clean and very Friendly Staff especially En Amin from the front office. Keep up the good work. The only thing i would like the Hotel to have is to installed TV set in the room and cost it into the room rates. The room is very comfortable but very lonely without a TV.

If you don't need frills, this is a great place. Great food on both sides. Nice big rooms with windows that open. A very nice bathroom with a window that opens. The only down side is that it is rather noisy-- not from street noise, but you really hear the people in the next room. The rooms are separated by...

Tune hotel claims to have 5 star bedding at 1 star prices. This is true, they have a good quality and comfortable bed. We even overslept for 10 hours at that bed. Other than the bed, we are less happy to stay at Tune hotel. True they have 1 star price if you are stick with a very basic accommodation...

I traveled from the other side of the world to reach Penang. A few days earlier, we had booked this hotel using the Internet and missed the Add-on extra (air conditioning, towel, etc.) purchases. After we made booking we sent an email to their headquarters and asked if we can purchase Add-ons on arrival and using the remaining "credit shell"....

I stayed in a window-less room, which I chose during booking as there would be less road noise and heat coming into the room. The room itself is simple, with not much space to place your luggage. There were two bedside tables and a fold up table. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. The bathroom was reasonably...

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
