The reception people were helpful to find locations around. I was given early check in freely. Triple executive room was small for three adults but may be enough for two adults and for a kid. Breakfast was basic and may be not enough for Asians. Room was clean and had toiletries free.Free wifi was superb. If you have singapore tourist... More

We traveled in Oct' 2014 to this small hotel and found it pretty okay considering the following. 1. Hotel costs in Singapore 2. Location - 15 mins walk from Farer Park MRT & Little India where one can find many shopping and eating options 3. Right on the road so taxi availability or local bus is not a problem. 4.... More

This is a descent hotel for a budget traveller and centrally located. They allowed for an early check -in during the day of arrival however the hotel is little unaware to the folks over there and keep the maps handy to find out the hotel. Rooms are small and clean and breakfast is simple. The hotel can be easily accessed... More

Unfortunately, on the day of our visit (via minibus, which we hired specifically for the journey), we were informed by... More

The hotel room is super dirty,the wall was not well painted and the bed seem to be super old and unclean for a long time. The staffs there were very rude and unfriendly, one of the Indian staffs they had couldn't even understand basic English. The staffs there couldn't communicate well with each other causing a big misunderstood for us... More

This hotel was terrible from the moment we arrived at 7am. We couldn't book in even though we notified them of our long overnight international flight with a child. Staff were unfriendly with no smiles. They kept changing us room after room due to rooms not being ready & beds made, also two rooms stinking so bad of smoke you... More

I randomly walked into this hotel, and for the price, its a poor hotel. It's dirty, with visible dirt on the floor and in the bathroom, the kind you could easily just wipe off. We had two beds but one of them did not have sheets. Blankets and towels were not folded. No toiletries provided. I will not stay here... More

I was informed about room problems upon check-in and the staff sent me a business card of the other hotel. According to the staff, it was an "upgrade" due to their room problems. The staff also gave me SGD10 for taking taxi to the alternate hotel. When I arrive the other hotel, I was upset and couldn't go back to... More

Location of hotel is very central. We could walk down to Little India/Mustafa area for Indian food. Also the metro stations are at walk able distance. Bus station are exactly opposite to the hotel. Regarding food, they daily provide same menus in the breakfast (tea/coffee/milk/chocolate milk, egg scramble, jam, butter, bread and banana). If you are staying in this hotel... More
