Then it made sense to me. Prior to Tune's arrival, an overnight stay in the area would cost 3,000php up. If you are like me who is only an hour away East in Rizal staying in a three-star hotel at that price would be too much if your only goal is to have a decent place to stay if you feel like not going home. Most patrons here I noticed are locals, families mostly. I started seeing a few Asians too but not so many whites.
Pioneer in Ad-ons
Room Rate could go as low as 888pesos. room Only. No Add-ons.
To describe it as a decent budget hotel is no justice. Think of 5-star bed, a power shower (hot and cold) , cable tv, modern interior for roughly 1,500 pesos and you can hardly find such a deal. And a room less all the add-ons you can have for around 900 pesos. How is that? Try some cheap motels nearby and you will find yourself paying the same amount of even more for a 24-hour stay in a shitty place. Just saying.
Book Online for Cheaper Rates
TIP: It i usually cheaper if you book online. Check their rates on Agoda.com to get a good deal. One time, I walked in to check and they offered me 2,200 pesos for the cheapest rate. I knew prior to going there that the online offer was only 1,500++ so I logged in their website and made booking online then and there and just presented the confirmation number to the front desk assistant. Clever.

While Ortigas Pasig is not known for historical sites, it is a bustling CBD with lots of choices for food and shopping. It is very near Shangrila Mall, SM Megamall and Podium. What I also like is the back entrance/exit which leads you to the quieter side of Ortigas in the area of UAAP and Tektite.

Take a cab and heed to Kapitolyo for some nice tea shops. Next to it is Kapitolyo Village where you can find some interesting specialty restaurants.

Night Parties and Drinking? Ask the cab to take you to MetroWalk and you are in for a fun night. Drink in an outdoor setting with a band or inside cozy pubs. Meet locals. The crowd here is composed mostly of young professionals.
The rooms maybe a bit small for families but Tune Hotel definitely offers quality accommodations at competitive rates. The only place in the area that offers similar quality is Go Hotels which I also tried. It is a Philippine-based brand with the same business scheme. No wonder why I frequent Tune Hotel Ortigas. I am comfortable with this brand and I am very happy with the value-for-money it offers.
