Vivian and Zuuana at the reception were really nice and helpful with us and our baby. They were really welcoming persons and they gave us good advice and help also.

Stayed 6 nights for my work trip. Maybe just standard if you talking about the budget hotel. The room was too cold. Would be better if the aircon could be turned off. Bugs came out at night whenever I made the room temperature warm. The bathroom is clean and good enough with shampoo/liquid soap. Thanks to Ms. Vivianne Ong. Your... More

Found this on TA advice. Location was great for MRT and airport. Short walking distance from station. Lots of food halls around- not catering for coeliacs though. On entering foyer area the stench of cigarette smoke permeated the air. There were notifications on the desk advising of fines if you smoked in the rooms, and the lifts had stickers to... More

I found this while searching for a hotel in Singapore. The hotel is excellent for the price. The location is good and only a short walk to MRT where you can go anywhere in Singapore for very little. This area is safe. A few years ago my daughter and I stayed at the Peninsula Excelsior Hotel for about $100/night. The... More

Understand that this hotel is not new, but the cleaniness of the room definitely give it away. Classic and decent type of room. We book a standard room but upgraded to family room which is comfortable enough and fit to 4-5 pax. I love this location as it is easy to find halal food around. Near to the subway about... More

Not a great one there are certainly better for the same cost. Rooms very small and very dark I would say it was clean but there is a strange smell not just in the room but in the hotel. Staff were very informative and friendly. I must say I wouldn't recommend.

Good Budget Hotel - clean safe - Great Staff very friendly - Singapore Hotels are high priced so a good budget hotel is something you need to find. About half way between the airport and city, located in a Malay Area. Next to several restaurants and a grocery store.

I stayed here for 1 night and it was pretty unpleasant. The room had no window, was very small and there was no shower curtain. I'm pretty sure I saw people checking in with hookers when I arrived, seems like that kind of place they rent out by the hour. I asked them to call me a taxi when I... More
