Tunes Fifth Hotel in London to Open Next Week

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 29 January 2015

Tune Hotels will open its fifth hotel in London and seventh in the UK, next week.

The 130-room Tune Hotel Canary Wharf will open its doors to the public on 2 February, continuing its strategic focus on London.

Located in the heart of Londons financial district, 100m from West India Quay, beside Cannon Workshops on Hertsmere Road, Tune Hotel Canary Wharf is just a short walk from the major banks and financial institutions and is conveniently located for people flying in and out of London City Airport.

As well as serving Londons business community, the latest addition to Tunes portfolio is ideally placed for the leisure market, with local attractions such as the O2, ExCeL and the Olympic Park on its doorstep.

And, with a tube journey to Bond Street only taking 20 minutes from Canary Wharf, the hotel provides ideal accommodation for those wanting to travel into town, without paying the price of a central London hotel.

The global chain, which already has six hotels in operation across the UK and opened a new hotel in Newcastle in late 2014, recently confirmed an expansion plan equivalent to 200m investment into the UK market. Unveiling plans to open 25 new properties by 2020, the company anticipates this will create significant employment growth in the hospitality sector.

Mark Lankester, Group CEO of Tune Hotels Group, said, London is where we started in the United Kingdom and remains the heart of our expansion into the regions of the UK. There is no foreseeable saturation point for Tune Hotels in London as the capital offers so many locations where our value for money concept would be welcomed by domestic and international travellers alike, especially by those who are familiar with the concept from staying at our hotels in other countries. For this reason, London will continue to form a crucial part of our overall UK plans for growth.

At Tune Hotels guests only pay for what they actually want and need, helping keep room costs low. The hotels offer high quality beds, powerful showers, central locations, a clean environment and 24-hour security.

Rooms at Tune Hotel Canary Wharf start from 55 with special promotional rates from as low as 35 available throughout February 2015.


Shoreditch will be the home of the sixth London hotel in 2016 and details of further openings are currently being finalised, contributing new investment in excess of 40m in the capital.
