With or without window? Not a question I ever thought I'd have to answer when booking a hotel. But then there was a time when the idea of paying extra to take your suitcase on holiday seemed ludicrous. The Ryanair of the hotel industry, Tune Hotel Haymarket opened in January 2013. On the right side of town for the airport, directly opposite the train station and tram stop (after a few hiccups, Edinburgh's trams finally started running in May 2014), it's the perfect crash pad if you've an early or late flight. Using the low-cost airline model, rooms start at £25 and you just pay for any extras you need, such as the TV and wi-fi… and towels. The strong, bold design in red, gray-black and white also makes the lobby feel like a low-cost airline headquarters—although there's a nod to location with bespoke tartan cushions. The chain has five core principals incorporated into every hotel: five-star beds, power showers, central and convenient locations, a clean environment, and 24-hour security. It's basic, but bright and cheery. And you get what you pay for.
