Reviewed 10 February 2014

Tune is a great hotel. Stayed there for 4 nights and found the room to be perfect for me (solo traveller). It was spotlessly clean, bed and linen were just so comfy. Reception staff could have been a little more helpful but not too bothered about that. All other staff I dealt with we're great. Some say the area is rough, I think that May be the case in the exterior. There is many homeless people and prostitutes in the area but I never felt uneasy at any stage on my trip. Would recommend.

Neatly organized hotel in Manila's Malate district. Rooms are clean and services (taxi ordering for example) are good. Manila's Intramuros area, as well as Manila's airport are easily reachable from the hotel.

This is a good, clean and reasonable option while staying in Manila. If you book through hotels.com, you get all of the extras included in the price.

The bed at Tune Hotels is always very comfortable and this place was no exception. The rooms (we stayed twice) were both clean and, on the second occasion,very spacious. The shower was powerful and we had a good sleep.

The neighbourhood is a little gritty, but is quite centrally located. It is a good standard option for this city.

We booked the hotel because it was cheap and clean; check and check. But found out it's a shoebox and lacked certain basics like a phone in the room, door for the shower, and a closet. We could live with that because the bed was nice, the AC works fine and walls and furnishings in good order but the neighborhood is sort of run down. In fairness, the neighborhood is par for the course in Manila...

Room Tip: Ask about the dimentions/square footage of the room

I was there in the summer of last year.... i put my wallet in my side pocket and left the hotel ,, ate and was going to the money changer when I felt into my pocket and nothing was there... i freaked out ,, my wallet had my credit card, and 200 dollars. so i rushed back , checked my room and no luck so I asked the front desk staff what I should do such as report it to the police and cancel my credit card....

But as I was talking to the staff,, the security guard by the front entrance said something and asked if this was the wallet i lost ... He had seen it laying right by his feet against the door... Thats was gud luck and a kind and alert security guard who spared me from losing 200 dollars and having to try to report a stolen card in another country.....

Thank you so much to all the staff at Tune...

Stayed in the Tune Ermita again after almost 2 years for 2 nights and the experience was exactly the same as before, brilliant. The hotel delivers what it promises, a great bed and an excellent shower. For a value/budget hotel, the Wifi connection was super. Easy to find to, all taxi drivers know the hotel. 7-11 on the ground floor, plus Molly Malones which serves all three meals. Portion sizes are huge, so order accordingly, try the lamb stew for lunch or dinner, excellent.

While some of our cab drivers had a little trouble finding the hotel, that was the extent of our problem. The room was a little on the small size for one containing a queen bed, but usable for two people. Within Walking distance from Robinson's Mall and Taft Avenue for easy commuting.
