I like Tune. No fancy stuff. Just a room to stay. This is not a place if you want a fancy room. This is a place if you want to rest your head for a decent price.

Conveniently located near an entertainment area in Ermita. Nice. Malone's outside and a Chinese restaurant opposite.

Serves its purpose, this hotel.

With great beds, and a wonderful shower I am happy, staff has always been pleasant, I stayed at this tunes twice in late October then early November service was consistent I have no complaints. For the money it is best bed around. Book thru hotels.com or expedia and avoid all the extra charges, I got air and wifi for same room price. Rooms are small for sleeping only ok they work for playing in bed too haha but this is your basic of basis but done with class. Get discounts for breakfast at the desk.

it's one of the worse thing we encountered as a family to stay in this hotel,i hate the cockroach crawling everywhere,it's disgusting...we check-in early and paid 300 peso since 2 pm is a check-in time and when we get to the room we are deadly tired since we had a long flight for that day at least 24 hours,the only thing you want that day is to go lay your back and rest,check-in time is a joke,they cant even tell you how to use the key at the front desk and when we get to the room it was really hot inside,so we had to go down, no problem with that and than when we get to the room we started seeing cockroach everywhere on the table,walls,and washroom,hate it,but had to put up with it since we are just staying in 2 days,the safety deposit box inside the room is nice,the rest of it, it's horrible hotel.

Room Tip: cockroach hotel,don't want to go back to this hotel anymore.

This is the worse hotel I ever had you have to pay for everything like xtra towel pillows and wifi you can only use it for 2 device junk. And the stuff is rude. The security guard is not helping with your baggage. This hotel is not recommended. "waste of money.!!!

One of the better tunes I've stayed in. The building looks welcoming and the room feels cheerful, could be due to a better brighter paint job then the other tunes regionally.

As for the room, everything works.

Amenites wise, 7 eleven on the ground floor. Jollibee and chow king round the corner; 5 minutes walk. A Robinsons (very big shopping mall, probably amalgamated) is 10-12 mins walk away.

Walk to the intersection near Jollibee to get a cab, you'll get one faster thats willing to use a meter, unlike the small road outside tune; or the best western with the taxi drivers out to make a killing.

Room Tip: Choose the higher floors as night time street volume could be high, because of the girlie bars that...

We've been staying at Tune Hotel twice the last 2 months and we're coming back.This hotel is very fresh and Clean. It's a lot of value for the money. The location is next to Ayala and the hotel also has a 7/11 in the same building.

I see that people write that "everything costs", but if you just add the packages you want directly that won't be a problem and you will still get a fair rate for the hotel room. Also, if you don't need wifi, television etc. (we didn't the first time) you can save money by just buying the things you want at the time.

If you decide to get the whole package, the wifi is great, TV is big and the aircon is the best we've experienced in the Philippines. Except from the package Tune has a nice and fresh shower and a really comfortable bed.

We also enjoyed getting our room cleaned, because of the funny housekeepers, giving us towel animals and stuff. :-)

See you next time!

Room Tip: Rooms at a higher level has a nice view.
