Tune Hotel Cagayan de Oro City is a 159-room budget hotel in the city of friendship. It is located at C.M. Recto Avenue, Cagayan De Oro City. It is about about 5 minutes walk from Centrio Ayala Mall and about 10 minutes walk from Limketkai Center. It offers comfortable yet affordable accommodation to budget conscious travelers.

Room and Amenities 
Tune hotels have a good reputation of a comfortable bed and shower facilities. I already read quite a lot of review about it so I was excited to stay at Tune Hotels CDO after a not so good experience from another budget accommodation in the city. 

Tune Hotel applies the same budget-friendly service like AirAsia. They have a pay-as-you-use model of service where in guests will only pay for add-ons according to their needs. If a guest want to use an aircon or wifi then he/she pays for it.
Tune Hotel CDO's Twin Room
Their basic room package includes a double or twin beds, hot & cold shower and some basic amenities like ceiling fan, hair dryer, and a safety deposit box. This package is very ideal to backpackers and travelers who are budget conscious. Guests visiting the city of friendship who prefer to bring their own towels and toiletries would be very happy to stay at Tune Hotel - Cagayan de Oro City as they do not have to pay for something they already have. 

When I entered the room, I immediately noticed the its cleanliness. I sat in my bed and the mattress was certainly conducive for sleeping. It has the right firmness and the sheet covering it was clean and smelled fresh. Initially, I was just a bit disappointed that there was no working table nor chair to do some of my online work but it did not really matter much as I am also used to working in my bed. As long as the internet speed is good I am happy with it.

Some Tune hotels in other countries have a 12-hour or a 24-hour option for air-conditioning access, however in the Philippines, only the 24-hour access is available. Each room is actually provided with a split-type air-conditioning system but the usage will be charge separately from the room cost. It is programmed depending on your room access card.

Security 
After checking in, you’ll be provided with an access card which you will be needing to use the elevator and of course to open your room and use the amenities that you paid for - TV, AC, WIFI and the free stuff. The card is pretty cool as it will exactly provide you access to the amenities you have availed. 

Getting Around 
Tune Hotel Cagayan de Oro does not have an in-house restaurant so you will have to go out of the hotel to buy your food or eat in a restaurant. They have a mini store in the lobby area so you can buy water and some other basic necessities. You don’t have to worry though as there are a lot of fast-food chain and stores nearby where you can buy your needs.The two most popular shopping malls in the city are just walking distance from Tune Hotel. Centrio Ayala Mall is located in the same street of the hotel while Limketkai Center has shortcut passage just few meters from the hotel. It is also very close to Magnum Transport service so going to Laguindingan airport is very accessible from the hotel.
