I enjoy a clean room, bed and bathroom every time I travel. Tune hotels have met my expectation. However the most enjoyable stay was in Penang where there are so many places to try out Malaysian food. From road side stalls to shop houses to alfresco dining all within walking distance. Shops are quaint and souvenirs are aplenty. I am...

This is the perfect place if you tend to spend most of your time out and about sightseeing or whatever. If you spend a lot of time in your room, you may need something larger & more expensive. If you just need somewhere to sleep, shower, refresh, then this place is great. The rooms, like all Tune Hotels, are small....

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
