Tune Hotels Now Offering Rooms for a Penny a Night

We are seriously considering giving up our costly New York rent for the impossibly affordable, recently reslashed down to 1 cent a night deal that Tune Hotels is offering at their Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Sepang, Malaysia locations.

Talk about serious basement pricing! The old 85 cents a night price now seems like a massive rip off with the latest one penny a night deal at select Tune Hotels. Folks! Can it get any cheaper!?

It's best to cast suspicion aside when paying 1/100th of a dollar at promises like "5-star sleeping experience at 1-star prices." A power shower, cleanliness and safety pass muster for penny pricing in our book, although--and excuse the snob in us--but who in their privileged or non-privileged mind thinks 250-thread count is luxe? (Isn't a lower thread count just glorified toilet paper?)

If anyone takes the financial risk and stays in a Tune Hotel, please tell us how the pay-as-you-use system of add-ons such as air-conditioning, laundered towels and any other energy-consuming facilities and amenities pan out bill-wise. The jaded in us wonders if they are at all like New York City's hidden costs.
