Budget based Tune Hotel, which is scheduled to start its operations here in March next year, will help to further spice up the development of this city, said Datuk Bandar of Ipoh, Datuk Roshidi Hashim.
He said Ipoh will have another landmark to its development once the first Tune Hotel here opens its doors to the people.
“This is what we are trying to achieve, and constantly promote at the Ipoh City Council (MBI) where each development is a catalyst for further progress in the surrounding areas.
“With the establishment of such a point like the Tune Hotel, certainly there will be other businesses cropping up such as nearby cafe and restaurants, and other spillover effects,” he said during the signing of an agreement here today between Tune Hotel and the Liew Yin Yin Group.
Tune Hotel was represented by its Group Chief Executive, Mark Lankester while Dr Don Liew Mun Hon represented the Liew Yin Yin Group.
Roshidi said the location of Tune Hotel Ipoh was at popular morning spot here during the weekend, namely Memory Lane and its concept of “walking street” was bound to further brighten up the city and provide more value for tourists.
Expected to boost tourism in the city, Tune Hotel Ipoh is located at a site owned by MBI in Jalan Veerasamy here, and will offer a total of 121 rooms once it is completed.
Lankester said besides Ipoh, there were plans to open up Tune Hotels in other parts of Perak.
