I have been quite a few times to this part of town and look for a basic hotel and good value for money. Typically I stay at the Bayview Park hotel but choose Tune this time around based on reviews and price. But I find Tune a bit too basic for my needs. There is no seating area. No fridge.... More

I checked in to this hotel for 14 days. It's surprisingly in the middle of a depressed area, a lot of street children, beggars and vendor. There is a Pub right outside the hotel but scenery is terribly depressing, seeing those street children and beggars begging for food. Not a good way to relax. The inner hotel lobby was ok.... More

This is not a place you'd like to lounge around and spend much time in other than sleeping and bathing. It is a very basic hotel, and as my title implies it serves its purpose very well. If you have a business meeting, in the manila area, or wish to go around and see the area, why waste good money... More

Typical Tune hotel with small clean comfortable rooms, good shower, flat-screen cable TV. If you are a couple but don't like small double beds I would recommend getting a twin.
