Focus On: Tune Hotel, Paddington
We all like a bargain don’t we? Yet as we trawl the web in order to look for a bargain or two there is a new contender on the “no frills” hotel scene. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the world of Tune Hotels.
These simple and affordable venues have already made their mark on the capital. Its motto is a “5-star sleeping experience at 1 star prices,” but does it live up to the hype? Guests can enjoy Tune Hotels across London in Westminster, Liverpool Street not to mention King’s Cross.
Officially part of the Tune Group, under the umbrella of QPR chairman Tony Fernandes, he has several other strings to his business portfolio. This includes AirAsia as well as dabbling in the Caterham Formula One team.
With sites across the globe from the Philippines to Thailand and Australia, Tune hopes to expand its hospitality empire to more than 100 hotels in the next 12 months.
Yet its Paddington hotel offers one of the best central locations for exploring the sites where you can easily reach several points of interest. This features not only Hyde Park but London Zoo, Oxford Street and is just minutes from the array of restaurants on the Edgware Road.
Based on a restricted service model, all Tune Hotels provide a pay as you use concept when it comes to services including TV, Wi-Fi access and even toiletries.
So to the hotel itself. Located on Praed Street its bright red post office colour appearance from the outside should not deter you from entering. Its warming lobby space coupled with fast and efficient service has already made it a popular choice in the Paddington area.
In addition to this, each of the 137 rooms has been designed with the optimum space and efficiency in mind. The focus is very much on its ethos to give you the very best for the lowest price.
You will be able to choose from a number of different in-room facilities ranging from comfortable Hypnos beds and individual climate control to power showers.
It’s certainly out with the old and in with the new as amenities such as a wellbeing centre and room service has been removed in order to enhance the overall experience.
There is even a coffee shop next door which non-residents will be able to use and is reasonably priced for a light bite or coffee.
In spite of the budget friendly approach which has been taken by Tune Hotels, you can always purchase the extra add ons if you really need a bit more pampering.
