Tune Tour Episode 2: Tune Hotel Penang

We’re so excited to share with you the second Tune Tour that our family experienced, after our first experience at Tune Hotel KLIA2 . Read more to learn about *drum roll* Tune Hotel Penang!

What’s best about this particular Tune Hotel (aside from the price) is its location. Tune Hotel Penang is located in the middle of food heaven in Georgetown! We saw a lot of eateries nearby, among them is the famous Continental Bakery.

To give you an idea of its awesome location, here’s a hint. It’s just a walking distance to Nagore Square, where you will be overwhelmed by the choices of restaurants.

For us, the best part is having The Alley located near the hotel. We frequented the shop a few times during our stay. Totally love the beverages there – we are a huge fan of The Alley!

Before we go on about the foods in Penang, let’s have a look around Tune Hotel Penang . The lobby is located at Level 2, so hop on the lift once you entered the premise to check in!

Among the promotions at Tune Hotel Penang

We were briefed prior to our visit by the Hotel Manager, Mr. Auzae, and he informed that Tune Hotel Penang is collaborating with a number of eateries to offer some discounts for the guests. You can see some of them in the above picture. Cool, isn’t it?

Here’s how it looks like at the lobby in Level 2. Check in time starts at 2 p.m. and check out time is at 11 a.m. – it’s quite early compared to other hotels.

Simple cute decoration of our room

Upon entering the room, we were greeted by a simple cute decoration, with a warm message attached to the towel. We were so touched!

Compact bathroom concept at Tune Hotel Penang

As you can see, the concept of the room and bathroom of Tune Hotel Penang is similar to that of Tune Hotel KLIA2 , whereby everything is compact and neat. Of course, that signature TuneHotel.com sign on the bathroom’s glass door too!

You’re seeing another door? That’s right, because our room is connected to Shafa’s mom room. Not bad if you’re coming with a plus one (or two)!

The view from the room was not bad. We manage to see some greens and buildings!

Do note that Tune Hotel Penang doesn’t have a hotel restaurant, but who needs that when you’re in a food-heaven town? We particularly recommend having dinner at Hameediyah Restaurant and Sham Hammer Ikan Bakar Special while you’re in Penang!

Let’s not forget to take some beautiful shots at the iconic Penang Bridge! Travel to Penang is not complete without that.

  1. We have stayed in Tune hotel before in KL. It was simple but yes in a good location. Never been to Penang but only in Bangkok. Nice to see some photos of the places.
