For the following reasons: 1.       The room was very small (10 feet X 10 feet) 2.       Shared bathroom which meant that I had to walk a few rooms along the lobby to use a bathroom 3.       The air conditioning was not adequate (not centrally air conditioned). 4.       Room and bed-sheets smell funny 5. No windows in room 6. Carpets along the lobby are stained... More

As Singapore is famous for small rooms of most hotels, my room was disappointed, Actually I booked by booking.com and it indicated the hotel has twin beds in standard room type. But they had only double bed type in standard rooms. I was astornished because I found a cockroach on the table as soon as I opened the door. The... More

I stayed at the Le Hotel Carpenter on the last 2 nights of my Singapore trip. I booked the standard room with shared bathroom. Unfortunately the bathrooms are on every floor except the ground floor where I was placed. That's fine I accepted that, it happens. Only the bathroom is in less desirable condition, untidy with a shower that is... More

I booked the cheapest single room here so that I could rest in-between checking out from my original hotel and having to go to the airport later that night. Certainly wouldn't want to spend my holiday here! From the time I arrived and was greeted (grunted at) by a very unfriendly large Indian man to the time I checked out... More

We stayed at Le Hotel for one night in December 2013 while traveling from Bali to Kuala Lumpur. Our stay at this centrally located establishment turned out to be the low point of our entire trip. The room we stayed in was unbelievably small, lacked windows and pretty much everything else other than a bed. I suppose this is what's... More

Good location, but do you guys called this a "HOTEL"? toothbrush? No hairdryer? No shampoo/shower gel ? No (only provides kind of strange combination) any furniture inside the room? Noooooooo . . . so, do you called this a "HOTEL?" come on

There's not necessarily anything wrong with this hotel. It's just that it's nowhere near 3 star standard. It's more like a slightly upmarket hostel - I'd have been delighted had we been paying hostel prices, but at 3 star hotel prices, it's a rip off. Presumably it's position near Clarke Quay ramps up the price, so I'd urge travellers who... More

We booked a room online in the morning but when we arrived to a not so friendly receptionist we were told we were being moved to another hotel. The location of Le Hotel was why we booked it and we are moved to another hotel which was miles out of town towards the airport. The other hotel was fine as... More

We arrived to a hotel in a great location near Clark Quay MRT and shopping precinct which was a good start, being early we were not sure if they would check us in but they did which was also terrific, off to our room and up to the 4th floor in the lift all is good, until we opened the... More

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
