Could you be staying in this new central Liverpool hotel after exams!? Have a read about the hotel itself and about how to enter our competition below!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to review The Tune Hotel in Liverpool. As a student, I didn’t need much more persuasion other than just being told it was free for me, as a student journalist, so was very keen to go!

My first impressions of it when I arrived was just how grand it was, set on the lovely Castle Street in the beautiful Queen Building. Upon arrival I was greeted by a very polite and pleasant member of staff, who was extremely helpful (and that was before they knew I was writing a review, so they get bonus points for that). The hotel room I was given was absolutely massive, given that it’s billed as a budget hotel (I checked with the reception staff and it’s the accessibility room so is one of their big ones). The room had an amazing view of the Liverpool Town Hall, which was a lovely surprise.


The Hotel’s location is definitely one of its more appealing points, situated just a two minute walk from Liverpool One shopping centre, meaning that waddling home after eating an inordinate amount of Nandos wasn’t as painful as I had anticipated. The Tune’s clean and friendly atmosphere meant I had a pleasant stay and I found that despite the large windows in my room, I still slept soundly without any disturbances from my fellow revellers.

DSC_2597Billed as Liverpool’s newest budget hotel, rooms start at only £25 per night, excluding extras such as WiFi, hairdryer, additional towels and food. However, these can be purchased additionally.


Personally I’d say this hotel is perfect if you want a cheap night in the centre of town, close to bars and restaurants. It’s also great if your parents are coming to visit and your student house is a massive tip.
