When I started to use this establishment in the early 90`s you could call it an "oasis in the desert for travellers". Somewhere to get 3 or 4 hours sleep and freshen up between long haul flights. Alas time has taken its toll and the room we got, left a lot to be desired. Definitely still the "oasis in the... More

Just what we needed to break the flights. Clean, small, quiet, excellent bathroom and everything available that you may have forgotten to pack in your hand luggage. Would not hesitate to stay again. Reception staff most informative and helpful.

We stopped of at Changi on our way to London. We saw this transit hotel inside the airport, which meant we could rest and have a private shower before our next flight with clearing customs. 5 star room in cleanliness and quality with a bonus watching the runways and aerobridges right at your bedroom window, but no noise.

My wife and I stayed one night to break up 25 hours of flying. The room was large, quiet and comfortable and serves the purpose of a layover hotel well. The rooms have no windows and provided the bare minimum of comforts and facilities; i.e.. one towel each but no hand towels or flannels. the staff are officious verging on... More

We stayed at the transit hotel with our 2 kids at a speciale room with 2 beds. Although it has only 1 2 person bed and 1 1 person bed this was not a problem for us and our younger kids. (6 and 8) After hitting the matras we all fall into a deep sleep to get ready for the... More

Since my spouse and I had an 9-hour layover inbound to Indonesia from the US, we made a 6-hour reservation for $91.00 between 2am and 8am. After 20 hours of flying, it was wonderful to shower, stretch out and relax. Management gave us a free upgrade to a larger room with a king-sized bed. The hotel and room exceeded our... More

The 'cupboard' we had expected instead was very spacious and pleasant. A King sized bed and plenty of room around it, a big modern ensuite, excellent aircon and our floor to ceiling window beside the bed provided nice views over looking parked planes and runways all in perfect silence! Plus the 'tea/coffee making' kit a nice bonus. Welcomed by friendly... More

I had a twelve hour transit, this hotel was ideal, I had imagined the rooms to be small and basic, but that was not the case. Room was big, large bathroom with shampoo etc. Tee coffee making facilities. The bar and swimming pool (outdoor) are adjacent. In the morning there are plenty or restaurants in the Terminal that are open.... More

We didn't get a room but we used the pool attached to this hotel. We had decided that a swim followed by a shower would be a relaxing way to spend the first of our five hours in transit. It was very pleasant; the water cool and the air not too hot and humid. The pool area was in good... More
