This hotel was a disappointment. It looks nice at first when you walk in but then the cracks begin to show. Our room was small and dark but OK, however, my mother's room had a damp stench and had not been cleaned properly. Apart from one of the elder female staff, the staff were not helpful at all. We asked... More

The location was not so great 'coz it was located in Balmoral, a residential district. Kinda far away fr. the shopping malls too. They also charge you for wifi if I remember correctly. Buffet breakfast was so-so. I would have preffered a hotel which is near to the shopping districts and tourist attractions. The staff were very polite and accomodating... More

We stayed at the VIP Hotel for 5 days and it was a great hotel. The breakfast was amazing value and the staff were awesome - in particular Patricia, who thought nothing was too much trouble. Lovely relaxing clean pool.

We arrive after travelling overnight yet the staff seems to be adamant about not giving us the room before check in time Inspite of a request placed for early check in. The room is available, right in front of us but they are refusing to allow us in, saying this is not the room, the other one is what we... More

The place is nice n homely, however needs sprucing up, to keep up with the rack rates, over the years. The location makes it a perfect place for the ones who like to be near Orchard and yet can be in the total quietness of the Balmoral residential calm neighbourhood. Another couple of years should make it more crowded though... More

This hotel is the epitome of the eighties. Very basic room, but very clean and has all the amenities you need. The pool is great, which is in the centre of the hotel. Breakfast is good, nothing spectacular though. Wifi is cheap and has a good connection. It is located within walking distance of the main shopping area, and has... More

We stayed here for five nights on a business trip. It's well located, 10 minute walk from newton mrt and newton hawker centre. It's only a 20 minute walk to Orchard Road. The rooms were spacious and clean although oddly bare. The cupboard space (shelves and a hanger) was in the bathroom. Breakfast was simple but filling. And the staff... More

I have stayed at the VIP a few times now. Overall not too bad but the Executive rooms are certainly the best choice. The standard rooms are large but I found the bedding a bit average. The executive room comes with comfortable bed and doona, very comfy. A well priced hotel on the city fringe, around $7 in a taxi... More
