Our family had 2 twin colourful well designed rooms which were compact but impeccably clean with a modern stylish bathroom. Very close to Chinatown MRT and Food Street, a perfect spot. Effective Wifi, AC, HC shower, tea/coffee, there is a safe deposit box and rooms are serviced daily. Staff are friendly and helpful. Whilst many hotels in Singapore are small,... More

When we checked in, there were 2 customers prancing round the check-in counter like she was begging for a room, so i guess it was another full house day, in any case, after some wait there was finally another receptionist who came to assist with the check-in. Check-in was fast and we were finally in our room at the corner... More

The rooms are a bit small but if you're in Singapore just for a short stay then it's all good. Very interesting decor inside and the location is perfect. Just 2 minutes from restaurants, shopping mall and metro. About 10 mins to get to the city or Harbor Front. Staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean.

We stayed 1 night in a Standard Double Room. It's not only the small size of these rooms that is shocking, it's the decor that has been chosen to make it seem even smaller. The walls and even the celling is painted a deep navy blue, even the tiles in the bathroom are black. The bathroom is so small you... More

The female front desk officer is not friendly, had me waiting until she finishes a call, did not apologize, not polite. The room is average, very small but enough for a couple. Lovely facade, artsy walls. Close to the train station. Local restaurants are within the vicinity too.

A small quaint hotel in Chinatown. The upside is that the location is ideal at Chinatown MRT station, with tourist attractions in Chinatown- Pagoda Street street market, Smith Street Food Court and Buddha Tooth Relic Temple just nearby. Many tourist attractions and places in Downtown Core are also incredibly near; most places wouldn't take more than a 10 minute MRT... More

I was looking for a hotel in Chinatown and near an MRT station and was deciding between this hotel and Bliss hotel, which are very near each other. Although i read the reviews about the rooms being small, i went ahead and booked this for my fiancee's sister's honeymoon and to my surprise they gave us a free upgrade to... More

Stayed here for a night, booked a standard room with queen bed. Staffs: They are very nice and welcoming, fast check-in. Room: IT IS SO SMALL that when I first got into the room I had to go into the toilet to give space for my boyfriend to take our luggage in. There is a build-in closet "thing" that has... More

I was on a business trip to Singapore and unfortunately my company booked me at this place. I didn't know that a hotel room could be so small. It was like a closet with a toilet. I stayed for 3 days and then went to another hotel. I couldn't take being in a coffin.

The rooms are compact cubicles, which are extremely clean, modern and have everything you could need. Because of the style and limited space there were no windows in my room and the lighting was very dim. For me it felt a bit claustrophobic and was unable to get a full nights sleep. The location is excellent, just a stones throw... More
