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... More

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... More

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
