The Inn was in the vicinity of Clarke Quay, walking distance to Funan, near Chinatown, a short taxi ride to Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands. The service was excellent. Free breakfast, actually eat-all-you-can wheat bread with a choice of peanut butter or strawberry jam.... More

The place was very clean and quiet as well. Our room had aircon and a window so we were comfortable.... More
