We've been anxiously awaiting the opening of The Tune Hotel Westminster in London on August 30, which will be the first of many Tune Hotels planned for London in the next decade. Room rates are advertised for as low as 35₤ a night yet when we looked our pending London stay we found a room for 55₤ a night instead.

That's still a great deal but that isn't where the room rate ends. Remember Tune Hotels is a "no frills" sort of budget hotel and if you want the amenities you're accustomed to in a hotel, you're going to have to pay for them one by one. As you can see in the picture above, towels and toiletries cost an extra 1.50₤ a stay. Unlimited use of the hair dryer is 1₤. Unlimited TV use is 10₤.

On the brightside, 24 hours of wireless internet is 3₤, which really is a feat for London hotels. Actually, the room rate in total is still quite a feat for all of London. One night on September 1 with towel rentals and 24 hours of WiFi only cost 59₤ a night (including the 2₤ credit card processing fee online) or in American dollars, just $93 a night. For London! Definitely a deal.

Just remember, it's up to you to keep those costs down but there are some things you might want to spring for--unless you always travel with your own towel.
