Tune Hotel Penang: A Review

 

Last month I had my first experience staying in Tune Hotel. Initially I was a little skeptical to try out a low cost budget hotel. Hmm… why not? Let’s try. Perhaps I was coming from no expectation, after a night’s stay, the hotel weighted beyond my expectation. If you don’t mind the mini size, Tune Hotel has a lot to offer.

 

Narrow road leading to the hotel’s parking areas. The only and very “small” car park area behind Tune Hotel which I suspect can only occupy less than 20 cars. Try your luck, otherwise you can always park at the paid parking areas in New World Park.

Tune Hotel Penang is conveniently located in central downtown of Georgetown. Just beside the hotel is New World Park. If you are unaware, New World Park is an open street mall concept that offers unique dining and shopping experience. There are Starbucks, Old Town Kopitiam and the ever-popular Food Court, just to name a few.

Decent lift lobby to Reception/Lobby at 2nd Floor. The lobby is considerably big, bright and comfortable. There is free internet access at lobby. Sofas at waiting area.

We got a double room with queen size bed. Psst.. the bed and pillows are comfortable. I got a surprised when I saw a safe box in one of the side tables. Very clever. How many budget hotels provide a safe box for their guests? Due to limited space, there is no wardrobe. Only a steel hanging bar for us to hang our clothes. There is a cute foldable table if you need to do some writing or to put your laptop. Curtains come in single layer but good enough as they are thick black-out curtains. Guarantee no morning sun glare if you wake up lateĀ  :p

Let’s have a look at the bathroom. Though the size and space is small, I could say that the bathroom is fully equipped. In fact, I didn’t expect to see rain shower in a budget hotel. I was actually more relief to see a hair dryer!

A decent, modern and safe hotel within affordable budget. We paid RM80 for a double room. Plus RM16 for 12 hours air-con and towel toiletries kit, bringing to a total of RM96 per night! Definitely worth it.

Well, Tony Fernandez has live up to his philosophy. Everyone can have a holiday!
