Tune Hotels.com is not new as it was first launched in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 2007.
Tune Hotels.com is part of the Tune Group, the private investment group of Tony Fernandes, founder and Group CEO of low cost airline AirAsia and Team Principal of the Lotus F1 Racing team. Tune Hotels.com in the UK will be operated under a strategic partnership with Queensway Group Limited, a UK‐based private investment group owning and operating hospitality assets in the UK, Europe and United Arab Emirates (UAE).
All Tune Hotels.com hotels feature space‐efficient, streamlined rooms focusing on high‐quality basics: 5‐star beds and powerful hot showers. The strategically located hotels provide housekeeping services, electronic keycard access into rooms, CCTV systems, and no access into the main lobby without a keycard past midnight. Through Tune Hotels.com’s ‘Less Waste, More Earth’ pay‐as‐you‐use system of add‐ons wi‐fi, TV, laundered towels and other energy‐consuming facilities and amenities, Tune Hotels.com aims to help guests conserve both their funds as well as the earth’s resources.
Base on the low cost airline structure, Tune Hotels.com works on a limited service model providing “5‐star beds at 1‐star prices” – i.e. high quality accommodations with the basic essentials:
- 5‐star beds – Since beds are usually most important for us so that we can all rest well and enjoy our holiday with sufficient and undisturbed rest.
- Power Showers – Always great to have powerful showers, whether alone or with someone. (Wink wink)
- Central and convenient locations – So you don’t have to waste too much money or time on transport.
- Clean environment – Yes we do not want insects sharing the rooms with us, or soiled bedsheets or towels. Eeks!
- 24 hour security – We don’t want to get robbed, mugged, killed or raped in our own rooms.
And if you need anything else, you have the option to add on. This means you pay for what you need. You may not need your sheets or towels to be changed every day. So click on the image below for more details.
