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

I was on a business trip to Singapore and chose this hotel to stay for 3 nights as the location of the hotel is pretty nice and closer to my work location. The room which i was given was extremely small which i think is a norm in most of the Singapore hotels. The wifi was also very patchy and... More

The reception staff were very helpful. The room was cramped shabby and tired although recently renovated bathroom was good. There was no view at all - just look at a wall. There were no chairs for seating; no supplied tea or coffee and the keysafe did not work. The breakfast was very average. The hotel was some walk from nearest... More

Actually it is quite difficult to rate a hotel in Singapore as hotels in general are extremely overprized. We paid around 100 EUR for a triple which was quite small with a tiny window. However, the room was clean (except under the bed, where we found a used condom), bathroom was alright and the location of the hotel convenient. The... More

My partner, myself and another couple stayed here for a weekend while in Singapore. We were looking a budget hotel that accommodated the 4 of us and this hotel did. We stayed in two adjoining rooms that were clean and laid out well. The rooms had a good a/c unit, tv & desk and the bathroom was nice. The breakfast... More

We spent three nights here in early october 2013. The room as clean and staff were nice. Breakfast was adequate. The mattress was bumpy and lumpy and hard to find a comfortable spot. Springs almost bursting out! In its price range it was ok as Singapore is so expensive but really to get a good review they need to change... More
