Good quality over long time”
I go to Tune Hotels in several countries here in Asia. And everywhere the management and the staff is able to offer to the guests the same good quality to a good price. You know exactly what you will find, and in reality it is exactly like this, also in Penang. I think this is great and I will choose next time a Tune Hotel again. Like in other places the hotel is very close to the public transport system, only in walking distance to the Komptar terminal where most bus lines cross. If you need you find in the ground floor of the hotel an efficient and friendly taxi service and just beside the entrance a 7/11 shop open 24 hours. Of course the staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are 100% Tune standard – very clean, a big bed and a big shower, the room just as small as possible but ok for one person and possible for two – perhaps for TV friends it is to mention that there is in Penang no TV in the room, you need to go to the reception to look. What else to say? Next time I choose Tune again.
Great little hotel. Staff good..”
The reception staff were very efficient and helpful. Room clean and everything worked well. The location is good with restaurants closeby and a Starbucks next door. This was my second stay at the Downtown Penang Tune Hotel. I would stop there again but would ask for a room away from the front of the hotel. The traffic and noise on Jalan Burmah can be very noisy at times. The massage chairs in the foyer are as good as any I have ever used. I highly recommend them to any traveller for a well-earned 15 minute treat. Cost was 5 ringgit. A five minute walk to a large shopping centre and it is in the interesting area of old Georgetown.
Best to stay if u have a budget or for one travell”
it's the first time i try to stay in Tune Hotel in Penang. i found very comfortable, clean and new room. Stay one to two nights is acceptable if you don't mind the room didn't got television. As i bring along my notebk, it only charges 12Rm for one day, it's acceptable for me. I found it's easy to walk around the hotel. nearby got Dr. sun yat sen Centre.u can discovery the history from there. and i eat very delicous chew gua teow in Kafe Heng Huat. totally, i stay in Penang for 3 days 2 nights. one night is other hotel costs me 115 Rm(on sale price),5 star. One night is in Tune hotel.It really 5 star hotel but only charges at 1 star price. Highly recommend u to stay in Tune hotel in Penang.
Modern, yet eco-friendly hotel”
Tune Hotel in Penang is probably one of the most well-known hotels in the province. It is located near New World Plaza where you can find restaurants and food shops that serve delicious meals in affordable prices. What I especially liked in Tune Hotel is its very eco-friendly. They actually have a timer for their airconditioning unit and the guest is given the option to turn the unit off and use the big ceiling fan once the room temperature is already cool enough. And if you need to extend your stay for a couple of hours after your check-out time, you can leave your bags at the reception. Then after the last leg of our sightseeing, we returned to the hotel to get out bags and headed to the jetty/ferry terminal.
Clean & Friendly”
We enjoyed our stay at the Tune Hotel in Penang. We stayed for 3 nights and our room was very clean, with a comfortable bed and a brilliant power shower. The room was small, so I wouldn't recommend a long stay here, but it has everything you need if your trip is just for a few nights, at very reasonable prices. NB: There is no food at this hotel, but I have entered a rating as I couldn't send this review if I didn't!!
Good value for the money”
As all Tune hotels the rooms are small, in Penang just too small for two people. There is just no space for baggage, you have to put it on the floor. And there is in Penang no TV, so you cannot inform yourself about the news of the day. But the price for the room is good, the staff very friendly and helpful, the bed is big, and there is a good shower, as they tell in the information. So for a short city stay I will go again to Tune, as I already did many times.
Great value for money”
Take a bus to komtar for RM2.80, on second floor of the airport (you arrive at first floor), you have to wait for about 0.5 hour if you miss a bus. Ask for "KOMTAR". then from Komtar, you can take a rickshaw for RM10 to Tunes. Tunes is new, so be specific or show a picture as rickshaw riders are usually low income, and speak little english. if NOT, hop on a taxi, they speak english and get you there really fast at RM15-RM20 (US$4-7). But rickshaw and bus are great ways to feel Penang and save $, as well as generate income for the residents riding rickshaw. Weather can be hot, you can ask for umbrella to be pulled over for cover for rickshaw. Confirm the price before getting on rickshaw, they are usually friendly and laid back, unlike the sharp bargaining required in Bangkok. Taxi to Airport is only RM40, you don't have to wait to share at RM15 per person at the counter if you have 2 person (cos you only save RM10 and have to wait).
Siti, Lin and the team at the front desk are amazing!”
Arrived hot and stressed from Bali to a sea of smiles and a welcome drink. The staff make this hotel such an enjoyable and great, central place to stay in a Georgetown. My room was comfy and clean and I totally appreciated the little things that the staff do for me. The cleaning staff are excellent too. Rooms are very small but wifi is reliable, there’s free hot and cool water and air con is very good too. The shower and beds are super good. Thank you again to all the staff at my favourite Tune Hotel. See you in May.
Good day Lyn. We are more than happy to hear such kind words and we really appreciate your continuous support. Thank you for your positive feedback and for always having Tune Hotels in your mind whenever you visit Penang. Have a good day and see you again! Regards, Danny Senior Guest Services Supervisor
Indeed value for money :)”
I'd landed at Penang at about 8pm that day and thought that Tune hotel would be good for just a night's stay. Indeed - with a comfortable bed and clean room, it was a cosy stay indeed. I had an 'inside' room, where the window faced a different room - but with the curtains drawn, no difference was felt at all. I'd say that Tune would be a good choice for those who do not intend to stay in their room a lot - because, you don't really need a TV and all that jazz :)
I felt very encourage when staying in Tune Hotel Penang as it is at par with 5 star hotel but its costs is lower than expected. I will come back & stay in Tune Hotel when ever I travel to Penang again some day next year. Please keep up your value & good standard at all time. We will meet again next year. Thank you very much. Bye..............
I enjoyed my stay here overall, very comfortable... Truly a 5 star hotel bed on a 1 star budget. Clean bathrooms too. Staff is also very helpful in many ways. They also have taxi service on the ground floor and they don't overprice at all. I was glad to ride their cab from Tunes to the airport for only RM35. It's also near New World center where there are lots of food. It's also walking distance to Komtar tower and bus station that will bring you to the airport. Another bust stop only like 50 meters away will also take you to gurney drive. I was alone in Penang and felt very safe in Tunes. Would definitely recommend this to friends!
Why does review needs a title?”
1. There are no food provided in some hotels. I am fine with that. Please change the review option for food to include N/A for Not Applicable. 2. Staff is very friendly, helpful and understand what the guests requires. This is one thing that appears to be the same across Tune hotels that i have put up in 2 separate locations. 3. The price is extremely reasonable. 4. The room is a litthe cramped if you are planning to bring large luggages then that will not be a good idea. A little bit more space would have been great. But i guess this is a case of attempting to maintain competetive pricing. Pretty much just stay on your bed. There is also no TV and wardrobe. 5. I like how there is a strategically position convenience store on the ground floor accessible to public. Overall Happy and no complains.
A perfect short,on budget stay for a small family. ”
Pros: 1)A clean room,modern design and facilities.Good amenities,just enough.Comfy bed and pillows. 2)Considered perfect if looking for a place to sleep/rest if u're on budget/backpacking. 3)Nice staffs at the reception. 4)7eleven is just below the hotel.Big score. Cons: 1)Really a small room but just enough space for solat. 2)The water flow at the sink was a bit slow and not draining properly. 3)No tv,but we barely use the tv whenever we stay at hotels. Not a big deal at all.We were there to discover Penang after all. Overall,i would recommend this hotel because I've been staying at Tune Hotel and they never disappoint me.If traveling on a tight budget and a short stay,its a perfect choice.

Great location but small rooms”
great geographical location for tune hotels - downtown penang but with small rooms. it gave a nice and sweet memorizes for me and my wife. just to informed that for those drives with your own transport, hotel only provided with limited parking lot, however, you may park your car at the restaurant beside the hotel with hourly rate. it consider cheap if you didn't park your car over night.
Clean, comfortable and convenient”
We enjoyed our stay at the Tune Hotel - Downtown Penang. It was value for money and I will definitely come back to stay again. I will recommend it to people who wants to explore the Penang city and looking for a comfortable bed rest at night. Location was superb. There was a nearby food court. You may even park your car at the hotel parking lot. However, the space is on a first come first serve basis. The room was clean, the facilities were sufficient. Overall, I enjoyed my stay
Amazing value and super comfy beds!”
I was staying longer than planned in Penang and wanted to switch from my hotel to a cheaper place. Tune was recommended by a friend and I was really surprised how great the value is! Location is a bit out of the backpacker center of Georgetown ( around 1km) but still walkable and I rent a bike anyway. The best thing was the bed! Probably the softest, most comfortable bed, I have ever slept in! Also the combo of AC & fan is really nice and staff is very friendly, helpful and professional! Good WiFi, too! Will definitely stay here again on my next visit!
Dear Julia, Thank you for your kind review. We gladly to know that overall your stay is pleasant. On behalf of the Management and the Team here, we thank you and look forward to welcoming you back again for another great stay soon. Sincerely, Putasnen, Guest Services Supervisor.
Clean and Near Komtar (Central Area)”
Pros: Clean Room 15 minutes walk to Komtar Area for the FREE Shuttle Bus to the Heritage Site We have availed of a discounted price with a Comfort Package upon booking, so we were provided with 2 Towels and 2 Small tubes of shampoo with FREE Woven Bag. At the ground floor of the Hotel, there is a taxi/ travel and tour company which provides reasonable and competitive prices; Example: To Penang Hill one Van for the 6 of us, RM65. Tune Hotel to Padang Polo RM15 (outside, it is RM20) Cons: Vault/ Safe was Low Battery upon check-in so we were not able to use it. The Billiards Table in the Lobby was NOT Functional, so we were not able to utilize it.
Heart of town”
After the Ermita Tune in Manila this hotel didn't throw up any surprises_ tune hotels feel the same - what you get charged for might vary as in Penang you got free towels, soap & shampoo for each day but you paid for WiFi , keeping baggage after checkout 2 RM per day -free boarding pass printouts, safe in the room. I would go back only since this works well for me and the location is great Near Komtar the bus centre bordering the Gorgeous Georgetown and convenient bus stops Taxi stands Cafes and eating joints.
Best tune hotel stayed..”
I've checked into several tune hotels since i always put my hotels at the lowest cost on travel in any occasion and I think tune hotel Penang was best tune hotel iI've stayed.. Area was good.. Staffs were kind.. and as always tune hotel never disappoint you with hot water and the water pressure comfy bed. It is their concept i guess. To make the story short low price room with basic needs in a good area i recommend this place. Staffs speak well English, Chinese and of course Malay. They got 24hours convenience store at the 1st floor and a billiard table infront of the reception which i liked a lot.. Parking is charge 10RM per entry so you might wanna use the parking when you decide not to use the car for the night.
I will go again”
I always stay in the Tune Hotel in Penang because i know what i get, and this i like. The room is not very big, but good for one person. and the staff is really very friendly and helpful. Where i go next time? to Tune Hotel in Penang, of course.
