An older hotel but clean and spacious. Understand it is undergoing renovations so some folks may have stayed in older rooms. I did not encounter any of the bad things mentioned by other reviewers. There was a slight smell but I believe it was incense and it was Ramadan when I stayed here. Great location, walking distance to Novena MRT... More

I am still staying here for the night as my last night in Singapore. Room is big enough but air conditioner not working. Room is more hot & humid than outside. Complained & checked by hotel guy. Asked me to wait for some time, it may cool. Hopefully they will change the room. This hotel looks more like fish market... More

This is a reasonably priced hotel in Singapore, and is conveniently located near at subway (MRT) stop. However, when I first checked in they put me in a room on the top (16th) floor that had a serious mold problem and was tired. I couldnt spend one hour in the room let alone 5 nights. I requested a room change... More

The hotel location is just a few steps from the MRT station. Clean and tiny hotel but has a very bad smell from the lobby to room, maybe this hotel is for Indian, I'm not sure. However, I'm still hoping that hotel can improve this so I will come back next time

I passed by this old-looking hotel countless times, partly because it is near to where I stay, and enroute to and fro town. What captivated me was the waterfall running down the walls, and the white statues of Greek gods / goddesses which form the exterior of this hotel. So when Freya* was coming to town, I decided to get... More

Stayed in a family room with 2kids. Located close to Novena MRT, The bus stand is just outside the hotel. However, since we were 4 of us, the taxi was better since it cost almost the same and saved much time. The hotel is nothing to write home about. The swimming pool is pretty small with poorly maintained surroundings. What... More

The only thing that saves this hotel in my review is the spacious room. But again I am not sure it worth the price. You don't get internet, breakfast wasn't included despite the price. Pool is a concrete hole with broken chairs around and to reach it you got to walk through the lobby in your swimming trunks. Next time... More

I was here on the Singapore Airlines Stopover Offer - so I didn't have much of a choice of hotels. The place is quite central from what I could see. Check-in took forever at 5.00pm in the evening (these things happen). They offer you a coffee on arrival - sweet gesture. The room is the outstanding feature very big and... More
