Would you believe a hotel room for as low as 20 cents? The new low-cost Tune Hotel near Kuala Lumpur’s airport is the brain child of AirAsia’s Tony Fernandes.
“The no-frills hotel, one of a slew popping up across Asia, is the definition of budget digs and anything above the basics will cost you,” say wire services.
Despite having a no-star rating, a standard room comes with a 5-star queen bed, a hot "power shower" and a ceiling fan.
Average prices are more like US$3 but there are rooms for less than a dollar as packages.
But the room is small - to say the least - albeit clean and modern, according to several reports.
Tune hotels, similar to low-cost airlines, employ a self-service online booking system and the rates are kept low by offering limited service.
The rooms are also available for three-hour stopovers, which the hotel calls its refresher pack.
There is no television or refrigerator. Want a towel? There’s a cost. Ditto for air conditioning.
It can get steamy and hot in Malasia but Fernandes thinks bargain-hunters will pass up creature comforts.
