A very comfortable hotel with clean rooms. However it is currently in need of some renovation work. Walls in the corridors and rooms are dented and scratched, covered with Tune Hotel posters advertising their "14 locations", which are now, I think, up to 43--showing you how long its been since even a minor "changing of the posters" has been done! Hotel is extremely noisy, both from the outside and the inside. Don't think anything much could be done about either without installing double-glazed windows for the outside noise and some kind of room and corridor noise abatement on the inside (I could clearly hear each and every thing that my neighbors in the adjoining room next door said!) both of which would probably raise the tariff to a point which might outweigh their advantage. Fairly easy walking distance to the heritage zone (~15 minutes) and Komtar (~10 minutes) and several nice restaurants in the other direction. There is a 7/11 on ground floor with unpleasant surly staff (what one comes to expect from 7/11 these days) in great contrast to Tune's most helpful, friendly and efficient staff. There is a very good, fairly new and modern outdoor (but covered) New World Park food court two doors away. Realize the hotel's limitations, enjoy all the money you are saving, and enjoy!
- 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
