We're surprised with our quad bedroom. We've booked without AC,hairdryer and shared bathrooms. But when we arrived there, we had it all for free with two private bathrooms. Staff hotel (Mr.Rahim) let us to check in 30 minutes before time. He also listened to our complain about left luggage before check in and compromised it with left luggage after check...

The Tune hotel is a perfect example of the adage "you get what you pay for" and also a perfect example of what that means by way of omissions. We paid the equivalent of about £8 per night, having booked late August 2012, for which we got a 2.5 x 3.5 metre room with no wardrobe, but with a very...

Our Tune experience was generally excellent. Close to the Komtar shopping and bus hub - excellent food nearby, a walk to the heritage area of Georgetown. The staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful, rooms clean, reasonably quiet but rather cramped with little room for luggage, beds excellent as were the bathrooms. Only downside was the lack of security on the...

I booked and paid 2 nights at Tunes Hotel Penang, but decided after the first night to check out of this hotel and then move to another hotel. Pros : - Location is good. Right next to a Starbucks, and about 10-15 min walk to the hawker stalls on Jalan Macalister. Cons: - there is very limited carpark inside the...

We move to room with good view in 2nd day, the room is better. Clean, very affordable price. We got 300 myr only for 5 days stay. I think they should have TV (even pay), like another Tune Hotels in Malaysia or Bali. And the Internet should be not 24 hours continuously, like the AC. Because impossible we will use...

Very clean, and comfortable environment. I only need to pay those facilities that I need. eg. air conditioner, TV... One thing not so good is no enough parking. If there is plenty of car park, I will book this hotel without second thought for my next trip to Penang.

Hi, Thank you for completing a Trip Advisor Review Our hotel essentially operates on a limited service concept, parallel to a “pay as you use concept” Since we are a Limited Service Hotel, we provide the basics for a good night sleep. For non-essential items such as TV, Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning, guests only pay if they need them. Guests not...

I am a person who is very particular about my hotel room, and I find this good enough if you are visiting Penang. When in Penang, no one will stay much of their time in room. You will only need a place to sleep + clean up and Tune Hotel is just the right place. Located strategically near all the...

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
