Royal Botanic Garden, Melbourne

Tune Hotels coming to Australia!!

This morning, I was welcomed by a good news, at least it is a good news for me. Tune Hotels are coming to Australia. They have bought some properties in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. It is expected that the one in Melbourne will be opened before Christmas 2012.
