Tune Hotel Kuta Bali

I stayed in Tune Hotel Kuta as a request really from my girlfriend and that the general opinion for booking a hotel in Kuta around christmas was that all were full. Duped yet again. The place was empty.
Still, After flight delays I arrived at the hotel which is not far from Hard Rock Cafe and Starbucks about 1am.
The room was prebooked as you cant simply walk in and ask for a room.
The building was very clean and bright, however the first thing that annoyed me was the greeting from the staff who appeared dis-interested and rude. No greeting. They just asked me to fill in paperwork and then leave a deposit of 60,000 rupiah for the towels which you have to rent and also 50,000 for the room key. This was not in the online information. The towel information was.
So carrying bags and towels we were told to take the lift and follow the signs.
The room had a huge door with lots of security functions. Tune is high on security and low on service.
Inside the room which was no more than a box. I would say it was about 2.25m x 3m. In this room was a small double bed, a fold down desk and 3 coat hangers for hanging 3 things. A big mirror across the bed and nothing else.
The bathroom was nice though. The power shower was good and there pressure was great. I liked the bathroom.
With the towel (there was no where to hang these towels) there was a sachet of soap and shampoo.

Sleeping there was nice as the bed however short (I am 189cm in height and my feet stuck out) was comfy and the blackout curtains were great. But there was no natural light.

The best thing about the hotel was the fact that the room was so restrictive that I spent all my time in Kuta, Bali and that was great.

I stayed 2 nights and this was frankly enough. With no where to sort clothes or hang them it was frustrating. Breakfast was extra and had to be booked on line so that was not something I wanted to do either.

The morning of checking out was early as I had a ferry to catch and so we were up early.The same night staff were on duty and they were just as unhappy and asked me to fill in a customer survey form in and so being honest I did.
I would have sat down to do this but the night guard was sleeping across the seats.
Then having to get the towels that I left in the room to return to the front desk kinda made up my mind, never to stay there again.

Now you must leave the room before 10am other wise the door automatically locks and then you are charged for another day.

I must also comment that I had booked and paid for a nights stay in the Tune hotel in Legion Bali but could not face it so I stayed elsewhere.

It was not that cheap either really with 1 night costing 236,000 rupiah after all the taxes and for the same money you can get better with AC (yes that was an optional luxury), breakfast, free towels, swimming pool huge beds.


  1. I was stay there during year end and got nothing terrible on services. To me this hotel is simple and easy.

  2. no you are right it is simple and easy but for me I need something else. This hotel is ideal if next to an airport where you need to stay for the night and move on.
    Staying in Bali, I needed something else. I have tried it and would not stay again.
