To celebrate Tune Hotels first hotel in Australia, the Tune Hotel Melbourne is offering room rates from A$49 (US$46 / RM157) per night.

Bookings can be made from today (18 June) until 28 June 2013 for stays between 1 November 2013 and 31 March 2014. A total of 1,000 rooms are being made available at that price. Terms and conditions apply.

The 225-room property will open for customers on 1 November 2013.

Tune Hotel Melbourne at 609 Swanston Street, Carlton is located next to the University of Melbourne, just two streets away from popular Lygon Street and minutes to Melbournes Central Business District (CBD).

To add to the celebration, long-haul low cost airline AirAsia X is also running a joint promotion with a one-way flight seat from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne going from RM329. Travellers have until 23 June 2013 to make a booking for travel between 15 November 2013 and 31 March 2014, subject to the availability of seats.

Also on offer are Fly Thru services from Jakarta-Melbourne (from IDR 1,459,000 one-way) and Bangkok-Melbourne (from THB 5,890 one-way), allowing guests to seamlessly connect via Kuala Lumpur.

Commenting on Melbourne as Tune Hotels Operational HQ for Australia and New Zealand, Group CEO Mark Lankester said, We are very excited about Tune Hotel Melbourne as it marks our growing brands entry into Australia and New Zealand. Melbourne will be the location for our HQ overseeing Australia and New Zealand operations, working in conjunction with the corporate office in Kuala Lumpur. Given our long term plans for the region, the Australia and New Zealand HQ will be staffed relevantly to oversee and provide central support to Tune Hotels properties in Australia and New Zealand.

The basic room rate at Tune Hotel Melbourne is already inclusive of air-conditioning and and/or heating. For an additional A$10, guests will get a pair of towels and toiletry kits and enjoy high-speed wireless broadband and Foxtel TV entertainment.

Tune Hotel Melbourne features an indoor courtyard, a recreational lounge, a restaurant, caf/ convenience store, luggage storage, self-service launderette and computer kiosks. It is also equipped with a basement car park, something unusual for city centre hotels in Australia.

The hotel is just two streets away from Lygon Street, more famously known as Little Italy. The central business district, Melbourne Central Train Station and QV Melbourne; one of Melbourne's finest retail, dining and entertainment precincts, is only two tram stops away.

All Tune hotels feature space-efficient, streamlined rooms focusing on high-quality basics: 5-star beds and powerful hot showers. The strategically located hotels provide housekeeping services, electronic keycard access into rooms, extensive CCTV systems, and no access into the main lobby without a keycard past midnight for extra security.

The group has received almost five million guests since the opening of its first hotel in Downtown Kuala Lumpur in 2007. Tune Hotels has one hotel in India, 11 in Malaysia, five in the UK, and four each in the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia. The company is set to open another property in Japan this year while future projects are planned in the Middle East, Europe and Africa.
