New-look Edinburgh hotel offers bedrooms from 25 pounds a night

Value hotel brand Tune Hotels continues to expand its global presence with the opening of its first ever Scottish hotel, Tune Hotel Haymarket, Edinburgh. Following the resounding success of the group’s UK entry with its four London properties, the Scottish hotel has stayed true to the brand by offering visitors international class accommodation that offers great value, great savings. Rooms start from 25 pounds a night.

Tune Hotel Haymarket has a different look and feel to other properties and showcases the group’s new, hip branding.

Mark Lankester, Group CEO of Tune Hotels commented: “Introducing the Tune Hotel brand to Scotland was an important business move for us. The demand for a low cost hotel that offers good quality basics and importantly a great night’s sleep is becoming ever more important as tourists and business travellers are swayed by price but unwilling to trade down. Edinburgh is an immensely important trade and tourism hub and we’re excited to take part in and contribute to its continued success. Further Scottish development is definitely on the cards as we look to introduce the brand to a number of Scottish cities.

“Tune Hotel Haymarket brings Tune Hotels’ UK portfolio to five with more on the way. We have 27 hotels globally across five countries and the pipeline includes hotels opening in Melbourne, Australia and Ahmedabad, India this year.”

Scottish Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism Fergus Ewing commented: “Ensuring we offer visitors to Scotland and Edinburgh a dynamic range of hotel facilities is of the upmost importance. Tune Hotels offers an exciting new product and something a little different to what is already available in the city. We wish the hotel every success.”

Perfectly positioned opposite Haymarket station, Tune Hotel Haymarket has 179 en-suite bedrooms including double bedrooms with and without windows, alongside twin and accessible bedrooms with windows. Continuing with the group’s core vision of providing great quality basics for a great night’s sleep at a price everyone can afford, those who book in advance will be able to enjoy bedrooms for as little as 25 pounds a night. 

Tune Hotels has successfully pioneered a branded value hotel brand with the concept of pay-as-you-use that has become hugely popular amongst travellers from across the world. Under the concept, guests only pay for room rates with the option of adding on other amenities like towels & toiletries, air-conditioning, in-room wifi and satellite TV service at selected hotels.

Tune Hotels has received over four million guests since the opening of its first hotel in downtown Kuala Lumpur in 2007.

Apart from enjoying great value, great savings at Tune Hotels, guests can also enhance their benefits and privileges by becoming a member of the BIG loyalty programme, of which Tune Hotels is a partner. BIG is a global loyalty programme that has just been launched, allowing card members to accumulate points when travelling and shopping with BIG partners worldwide, and redeem the accumulated points for exciting rewards including flight seats on the world’s best low cost carrier AirAsia.
