AMBITIOUS LONDON EXPANSION PLANS OF TUNE HOTELS
TUNE HOTEL LIVERPOOL STREET WELCOMES FIRST GUESTS
LONDON, 27 December 2011 – Malaysian Budget hotel chain Tune Hotels today opened its second London property at Liverpool Street with rooms from just £35 a night – perfect for the savvy traveller. By providing additional hotel stock for the city, at Tune Hotels’ vision of great value and savings, the new property is an ideal way to target domestic and international visitors.
As one of the most frequented cities in the world, London hotel costs can often be seen as too pricey for a weekend break. However the second innovative opening will be a welcome relief to travellers by providing low cost accommodation and savings which can ultimately be spent on London based experiences. Those coming to the city and staying at a Tune Hotels property can look forward to low-cost rooms focused on high-quality basics - excellent beds, power showers, air conditioned rooms, central locations, a clean environment, and 24-hour security – with guests only paying extra for the facilities and services they use.
Located just 500 metres from Liverpool Street station, the new Tune Hotels property features 183 en-suite bedrooms, all of which are 20% larger than the bedrooms at its sister property. For the first time in the UK, Tune Hotels has introduced twin bedrooms to the Liverpool Street property. The hotel also has a private courtyard garden, spanning 550 square metres, which will be accessible to all guests staying at the hotel.
Mark Lankester, Group CEO of Tune Hotels commented: "We are committed to London as one of our core markets and will be striving for Liverpool Street to follow in the success of our Westminster property which has achieved average occupancies in excess of 96% since opening in August 2010."
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "Affordable hotel rooms are always in high demand in London, and it’s fantastic to see Tune Hotels invest in the capital at such a crucial time for tourism.
"There has never been a better opportunity to show our city off to the world as we gear up for one of the most extraordinary and exciting years in London’s history."
All the best Tune Hotels. All the Best Malaysia and Air Asia.
