I visited this hotel in my first visit to Singapore. The hotel is average... so the prices are reasonable more or less. The staff was neutral and services are ok. However, they helped us in arranging a guide for our daily tours. Behind the hotel building, there are some shops, where you can eat some of Singapore specials and can... More

A lot of people doesn't like to stay in this hotel, they got it all wrong, just pause for a minute, and think, why are you going to singapore? Business or pleasure? If you're staying here for business, well, no doubt you'll want to stay to those fancy five star hotels and the like, go ahead and enjoy your hotel!... More

My husband and I still joke about this place, it was, in short, absolutely vile. We felt dirty and diseased after sleeping here, and did not even bother with the breakfast. Or room was filthy, brown, worn out and stank of cigarettes. Honestly I am not picky and have backpacked etc. but this was just foul. Also, staff were rude... More

Came here with my family from Vietnam... the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, seriously. Room stunk of stale cigarettes, everything was dusty, handles and drawers were falling off left, right and center... Absolutely nothing good about this place apart from Location and even then I'd stay away from this dump at all costs! Pictures on here say it all!... More

This place is far below Singapore standard. Let me begin with the location.. True that it's a glance away from the shopping belt but what you... More
