“Only worth when booking at 'promo' price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

So many giving great reviews on this Tune hotel but I got to say that for me it is not.

Talking about price, you can get a better hotel at this price. The price changes with time and goes up rapidly. Only the promotion price is cheap. The normal price is considered expensive for this kind of quality.

Location - This is well located for night life. Maybe this is a good reason why travellers like here. You can just get some drinks anywhere along the road here, even just opposite the hotel. And you can also grab a girl and bring her up.

Hotel comfort - Hotel is still new. Clean, tidy. Check is staffs are friendly and helpful. Facilities are all good provided you pay extra. If you don't pay, you get nothing, not even a towel. Single bed is very small, smaller than normal single bed.

I stayed for 2 nights and am a repeat guest. Everything they advertise they executed. Customers who do not read the terms and conditions of the hotel may end up with issues. As in any budget offering first understand the fine print before signing on.

The room was very clean, the air conditioning was cold, the hotel was safe. The hotel staff was courteous and informative. I received the services I paid for, nothing more, nothing less. My expectations were met.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the higher floors to minimize the noise from the traffic and KTV bars. Know the ar...

Its overall a good hotel but the room is small, more of what you pay for.

The bed is fine, and the water pressure on the shower is really strong. Location is great and it has a in room safe, tv is good it has alot of channels.

Staff are friendly and nice. The only thing is that you have to pay for everything, I mean everything that you would want to have like toiletries, towels etc. That's the catch not that low price they advertise.

Although overall I enjoyed my stay and I recommend it!

Ive stayed here once before a while ago ans thought id give it another try as it was ok last time. This time I was happily impressed. Check in was done very quickly and I was in my clean room in no time. Room includes a safe which is very convenient. The air con was nice and cool and there are loads of chanels on the wide screen TV. The rooms are not very big and there are no cupboards etc so you kinda have to live out lf your suit case altbough there is a rack you can hang some clothes from. The rooms are quiet and serviced daily. If you opt for breakfast it is served at Mallones Restaurant at the front of the hotel and is very tasty with a range of set menus to choose from, there is also a 7/11 just inside the hotel entrance. The rooms dont include bar fridges or any cutlery, glasses etc but the shower is pretty much the best as you will get anywhere.
Close to the hotel there is Manila Bay, Rizal Park, Intramurous and Robinsons Mall.
Be aware, there is a lot of poverty In this neighborhood and you will likely be asked for money often and by very young children. I always carry coins but be aware if you give to one then you will probably have more lined up. Its up to you but 10 -20 php is enough so tbey can get some rice and remember you probably arent the only donor that day.

If u dont axept many restrictives rules u cannot cancell your reservation. U have to pay before all the days u stay and they dont give u back anything. They sbmit to u a paper what u have to sign and if u dont respect some of theese rules u have to pay a lot of penalty. It seems like a prison. About the rules: u cannot smoke in any room, all the hotel is not smoking, but they dont advise in the site. U have to pay all u use and at the and u pay much more of other hotel .

The Tune in Ermita is excellent price/value if you are on a budget. It is in the middle of Ermita entertainment district, and as some other reviews state, there is quite some red light around. But well, if you don't like that, stay in Makati. There are also many lively "normal" live music bars around. I like the area.

The rooms consist of a bed, a decent bathroom with shower, large flat screen TV, and not much else. The air con can get quite loud, as can the fan, which gets annoying and disturbs your sleep enormously.

The main advantage is that you can walk to everything in the Ermita/Malate district, and there's always a taxi near you. There's also a 7-Eleven next to the entrance if you need snacks or water. The hotel provides free WiFi that works most of the time.

All in all convenient and recommended for that price, certainly better than many of the sleazy "budget" hotels around the hood. But don't expect to relax. This is a place to drop your luggage, explore the city, come back to sleep only. Not a hotel in which you relax or spend time in your room.

So if you are on a budget, this is a good choice. If you have a few bucks flexibility in your budget, you may want to choose one step up the ladder.

Very small room for cheap price. Nice staff, avarage comfortable. First class irish pub next to reception. 7eleven next to reception. Good location, you can go by walk to Roxal Boulevard, Rizal Park, long walk to Intramuros. Around the hotel you can see really Manila's life. For 1500pesos it is good place.
