We booked 2 rooms and I expected the small rooms (it's a budget hotel in Singapore) - I could live with that. But what surprised me was that the rooms were not cleaned properly. The bathrooms were old and dirty - need thorough cleaning and disinfection to remove the scum and mold on walls, floors, tile grouts, fixtures - practically... More

We booked the superior double room. Even with all our luggage inside, it was spacious and comfortable. The worst part of the stay was we kept finding our room door open when we would return at the end of the day. This probably happened because housekeeping. Nothing was stolen, it was just a little unnerving because it happened twice during... More
