Calling all savvy travellers - want the five star experience without the price tag?

Tune Hotel in the heart of Canary Wharf recently opened beginning of February and I was asked to be one of the first to stay and review my experience. The hotel experience offered is aimed at those looking for modern, high quality accommodation at the fraction of the price.

If I said you could enjoy double rooms, featuring five star hypnos beds with 250 thread count sheets & power showers for a mere £40 a night, central London - would you believe me?

Probably not! 

Regular London visitor and intrigued? I may have found just what your looking for.. 

I already had some plans that evening in London, so reviewing a central London hotel, was both timely and exciting! It was Alex's birthday weekend, so I decided what better way to treat ourselves than an overnight stay with some London frolics thrown in. I decided to take the day off work and make the most of my stay by heading down into London a little earlier, & familiarizing myself with the local area.

I soon arrived, I admit, I did have trouble finding my way, more so locating the Canary Wharf DLR station, as I had chosen to use this as my landmark pointer, as its located at about 500 metres from the hotel. I knew once I'd found this, I was unlikely to get lost. Do bear in mind the DLR station is poorly sign-posted and rather confusing - alternatively I found the hotel much easier to locate through a mix of following signs to the London Docklands museum and using trusty google maps. 

Check-in was prompt, just what I needed after lugging a heavy bag around London. I was ready to crash, settle into my room and watch some TV before meeting Alex later on. Oh what an exciting life I lead!

Upon entering the room I felt like I'd walked into a space pod - that's the best way I can think to describe it. It was a very modern, space efficient room featuring all the high quality basics I needed for my stay - en-suite bathroom, super fast wifi and five star hypnos bed! 

Tune hotels pride themselves on a "no frills, only pay for what you need" basis. So if you wanted an even cheaper stay - i.e. your not bothered about comfort package add-on's like Wifi, hairdryer, TV, safe etc.. then you are exactly the type of traveller they can cater for. 

Then again if you'd like to add these on, its probably going to add about £10 onto your stay, so that's still only a total of £50 for an overnight stay; perfect! 

Already with four well-established hotels in the capital including Westminster, Liverpool Street, Paddington and Kings Cross, Tune Hotels really are staying in key with the budget conscious, savvy travellers across the UK looking for convenient, central locations to stay.

I'm really glad I've discovered the concept of Tune Hotels and will definitely be using them again in the future!

I'll finish off this post with a picture of the birthday boy from the weekend. On Saturday morning once we'd checked out (we were given complimentary late check-out until 1pm also!) we headed on over to Tom's Kitchen in Canary Wharf for a birthday breakfast. It was literally a two minute walk from the hotel and I'd already researched the menu the night before. 

I was desperately craving pancakes.. or shall I say the singular 'pancake' as that is really what I received in every sense of the word! 

One bloomin' huge pancake!

I did wonder, at the steep old price of £9.50 if I would be up to my eyes in a pancake stack, drizzled in maple syrup - however this was the alternative, & and it was a bloody good alternative; oozing with juicy blueberries and doused in maple syrup, I was in pancake heaven. 
A great choice for anyone pondering the Tom's Kitchen brunch menu.
