it wasn’t a first for me to stay on one of tune hotel‘s establishments. i have stayed in their branch in cebu (philippines), in penang (malaysia) and bali, (indonesia).
their branch in ortigas was new and i was about to attend some refresher courses in a training center which was a 10-minute walk from the hotel. i decided then to stay for four days. i booked online and it only cost me P4500.00 (including add-ons), which was about a hundred dollars. with tunes they have this “pay-as-you-use of add-ons” concept – say you pay for the toiletries, for 12 or 24 hours air-conditioning, TV and internet access.
my brother dropped me off at the hotel too early for check-in time was strictly 2:00 pm. i had to wait for two hours and was accommodated at 1:30 pm. the hotel lobby was quite comfortable and there were desktop computers with internet available for use.
the hotel has 12 floors and the room i got assigned to was at the 11th floor, 1122. a keycard to get access to the floors is needed which is a good safety feature.
it’s been a habit of mine to check the fire escape plan of the hotel i’m staying.
they promise 5-star beds and in fact theirs are comparable with the other hotels i stayed. internet connection works very good, a stub is given with the password upon check-in.
there are no cabinets in the room for your stuff but there’s this stainless steel brace in the corner that you can hang clothes on, clear plastic hangers included.
toilet and shower area was clean and looks very new.
towels and toiletries (a tube of shampoo and bar of soap) are add-ons that you have to buy separately during online booking.
my stay at tune hotel ortigas was fine and i never met any problems. it is highly recommended if you want a very budget friendly, no-frills accommodation.
