“Good value and good location”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

I had a hospital appointment at St Marys hospital, and with not being local we usually drive down, but we decided to stay over this time and catch up with friends. The hotel was the perfect location for us (5 minute walk to the hospital), and near the tube station, and as we come every year it is nice to know there is a decent place to stay near by which is reasonably priced.
The only thing I will say is that it is best to book directly through the hotel, we opted to have no extras in the room at all, and no window, which made it significantly cheaper than going through booking.com, laterooms etc, as they automatically add the extras on. As we were using the hotel as just a base to sleep, the lack of towels, wifi, TV hairdryer and toiletries was not an issue at all, neither was the lack of window, in fact, we preferred it as the room was completely dark with the lights out, which I find is sometimes a problem in London hotels with so many things going on.
The one thing that was a minor issue was the location of the actual room, we were in the basement on the end of the row, so we had noise from the tube trains going by every 3-5 minutes until gone midnight, but on the second night my husband asked reception if they had ear plugs, which they had and gave to us at no extra charge.
We will more than likely stay again due to the convenience of the location,

Room Tip: Rooms are quite small, but perfectly functional. We opted for a windowless room, which was cheaper.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for your kind review.

I am very pleased you chose us for your stay. Thank you for highlighting some of our key focuses like the prime central location and we are glad you took advantage of our competitive rates in comparison with other hotels in the area.
When guests book directly through our website, they can design their own stay by only paying for the extras they need and therefore save on their accommodation, as you pointed out. We are glad you enjoyed the room with no windows and you found our concept to be suitable for your needs.

With regards to your noise issue, we do have a bit of background noise due to our superb location in the centre of London and we have done everything we can to minimise this. Nevertheless, I am glad our front desk team was able to find a suitable solution for you.

We hope to have the chance of welcoming you back on your next trip to London.

Kind regards,

Cristian Rodriguez
Guest Service Supervisor

fast check in - no card required - cause there ain't anything to consume for them to charge !
very modern , very clean rooms, friendly staff, and a bargain. For an overnight or a few business days can't be beaten. free wifi and obviously a TV. Book through Expedia gets you the goodies like toiletries. there is a cafe hub downstairs for coffee but to be honest its on Praed Street London and next to Edgeware road so there are a million places to eat and drink. Opposite is a Tesco Express for all the things you need.

Stayed here for three nights. Definitely small, simple rooms. But the price ($120 per night plus taxes through Expedia) was impossible to beat. Not so great London hotels were charging twice as much. The are some up charges (e.g, a few gbp to store a bag after you check out), but everything is transparent, and I didn't feel taken advantage of. Location was convenient--just a couple of blocks to two different tube stops. Very easy to get to Heathrow via the Heathrow express. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Dear reviewer,

Thank you for sharing your comments on Tripadvisor.

Tune hotels operate a limited service in the hospitality industry by providing space efficient rooms and allowing guests to choose and pay only for the extras they need. This in return, allows us to provide very competitive rates in comparison to other hotels in central London. Our Location is indeed one of our greatest strengths, just a stone’s throw away from Paddington Station and from the famous Hyde Park.

I would also like to thank you for the kind comments about our staff and we look forward to welcome you on another occasion.

Kind regards,

Cristian Rodriguez

Stayed here for 5 nights and the hotel room was much larger then what I was expecting, I think because it was a twin room the room had a lot more space then that of a double. The hotel was located right near two undergrounds making it very easy to get around. There is also a lot of food places and a tescos right in front of the hotel. Would recommend this hotel without a doubt.

Stayed just recently for 6 nights. Check in was done in less than 10 minutes. Room size was okay for 2 adults but importantly the room is clean. All in all the hotel room is comfortable and value for money. Good location. Definitely will stay here again :)

I stayed here in May on business and must admit that I was very apprehensive when I had my stay booked here....I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is new and modern, and yes the rooms are small - very small, but it has been designed to ensure max use of space.

I guess the challenge would be for two people to be in the room and it would be a squeeze but hey most of the time when you are in London you just want a decent place to lay your head thats clean, safe and central.

They have an agreement with the cafe next to the hotel for breakfast with a discount and again was very impressed with the quality of the food and the price - could also have lunch and I believe dinner there as well. Its Italian cuisine and well worth a visit.

For the price they charge this is really good value for money in London. I will be back......

Check in was quick and painless. Room was very small but very clean. Bed was comfortable. No closet space but there is a hanger rack for shirts, sweaters etc. Bathroom very clean and new. Lots of hot water.
The trains make a little noise but not a big deal. Reception very helpful with local information.
10 minute walk to Paddington station and 5 minutes to Edgeware Road station.
24 hour convenience store across the road.
I booked the hotel on Expedia so TV, WI-Fi, towels, shampoo etc were included.
I was very pleased with the overall experience. The price is right and hotel is modern and clean.
