No TV no carpark!

One of the lousiest hotels I've stayed to date. Even the most basic TV cannot be found in the room! We need to pay RM6 at the nearby carpark per entry! Imagine we drive out for breakfast lunch and dinner, that would be RM18 per day for parking fee!

basic.value.location

All went smoothly. Clean though a bit worn. Very basic. Pay for extras (only what you need to use). Wouldn't allow check in couple of hours early, wouldn't even check if room ready or not, then charged 2MYR to store bag that time. Staff friendly and helpful once checked in. Security check late night entry to building. Close to Komtar, and (free) CAT city transit bus stop.

Smallest Room Ever, but Great Location!

It was our first time staying at a "Tune" hotel. We discovered its Air Asia's no frills brand of hotels, run the same way. The room was really tiny, about 2.5 x 3m, just enough to fit a bed! Then there's a small approx 1x3m bathroom. Although the room is really tiny and doesn't leave much space to put a suitcase, I was OK with that. The room was fairly clean, however there was dust visible on the hard floors and some flat surfaces. Also the windows don't seem to seal completely when closed, which means you will hear noise from the street, and also there was a lot of small brown ants in the bathroom, walking up a line on the wall - thankfully the bathroom is sealed from the sleeping area, so wasn't too much of a problem. Our package luckily included air conditioning, however the "basic" package doesn't and requires you to buy 12 hour blocks of aircon time!! Also there's no TV in the room (not really an issue for me, but my girlfriend would've liked one), and you do get a ceiling fan as well! If you want a TV you need to pay extra for an upgraded room! Also the other charges they will sting you with are for minding your luggage before or after checking out. I've never stayed at a hotel that charges for this service, and find it unacceptable! Also WiFi is not included and costs extra. Similarly priced hotels around Asia included WiFi, so this was disappointing. However they are willing to provide 1/2 hour WiFi coupons for use in the foyer, which helps, but isn't ideal. The location is very convenient. There's lots of food places nearby, and its about a 5 minute walk to Komtar (bus interchange and major shopping centre). The staff were friendly and helpful, although the "tour desk" downstairs is irritating, each time we passed they kept hassling us to get a taxi!! The other problem was we had some noisy guests on our floor. There was a lot of screaming in the evening, but thankfully at night it died down. There is also no phone in the room to call down to reception in case of problems! Finally, the bed was great. Tune hotels claim to offer 5 star beds at 1 star prices, well I can say their bed is very comfortable! The mattress has pocket springs, so if your parter moves around or gets up during the night, you don't feel the disturbance. Overall, the room is extremely basic, but for someone like me who just wants a place to keep their suitcase, have a shower and a comfortable night's sleep, its quite adequate. With a convenient location, I would stay there again, however if there was an alternative at a similar price, I would probably try a different hotel. It really should include WiFi at no extra charge, considering there's nothing else included in the room!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Search online for a list of food places to visit in Penang, or pick up a free food guide from reception. There are plenty of cheap eats to discover in 5-15 mins walk from the hotel.

Everythings ok except PArking lot.

My room is a 1-Queen-size bed room. Everythings are ok. Clean bedsheet, no ugly smell and, bed is very very comfortable. Staff are nice and willing to help. WiFi cost you RM12 for 24 hours. The only downside is the parking lot. Only 16 untis available for Hotel itself and you have to find yourself if its full. I paid RM17 for my car parking at the next lot from 11pm to 9.30am. However if you dont mind guarded car park you may park it at roadside, which cost you only as low as RM0.40 for 30min.

great stay in Penang

very clean compare to others around Georgetown, enjoyed the massage on 1st floor, they come to your room on your request, in and out of hotel without any one asking you, next door New World coffee and food place is great, there is a soya bean drink and snack store as well as a cooling herbal drink store opposite, 10mins walk to Penang road and Komtar bus station, final word, value for money hotel.
