Within walking distance to Boat Quay, Clarke Quay MRT and other local restaurants. Due to the close proximity to Boat Quay, easy access to pubs. There is a shopping mall 300 meters away from the hotel. I would like to suggest the hotel to improve the sound proofing of the rooms and to have the cleaners regular inspection of the... More

Room had no windows, which was fine. Table looked like it was an incomplete carpenter's work. Room was not very sanitary, some wall paper seem to have came off, AC not very cold. Towel rack in the bathroom/ toilet was a little rusty. A part of the toilet door was sort of musty and rusty. We had a room at... More

Very helpful staff. Had to change rooms because socket hanging out of the wall. No coffee cup. AC dodgy. Expected a shower and sink at least. A bedside lamp would have been appreciated. Very very small rooms. But very central and Singapore is very expensive!

I should have figured that this was no where near the standard of a regular 3-star hotel when I saw that we would have to share bathrooms, but the rating was high, the price was good and the location was ideal. Not only did I have to share a bathroom, there wasn't even a sink in the room and I... More

I booked there because of the location. I didnt really mind that the room is extra small because we planned to spend time outside mostly. anyway, the female staff was helpful but not the chubby guy. late at night, he watched tv (or maybe it's his music) so loud. the room was dirty and got musty smell. i also needed...

My initial impression was not quite positive because the building is a bit old and dirty. My room (1 single bed) was very small and AC was not working well always. It seemed a bit ghetto. However, considering it is located very near Clarke Quaey (quite central near many restaurants and clubs), the price is very reasonable. For the same... More

I spent 4 days 3 nights at Le Hotel in twin bedroom, private bathroom. The receptionist was kind and so helpful. Bathroom was clean, but shower was bad (heater didn't work well). And room was a little bit smelly at first I entered the room, but it was not a big deal. Very good location, it's located near Clarke Quay... More

Near the Clarke Quay MRT station and the restaurants at Boat Quay. I chose the room with the common shower and it always seem to be clean (probably because no one was checked-in in the other rooms at that time). Staff in the morning are very friendly (those on the night shift doesn't seem to care). You'll need to deposit... More

Good location, but bathroom and shower on a different floor to my floor - well broom cupboard better describes my accommodation. No storage space - not even a coat hanger. And they wanted a $50 deposit - not sure why.
