Most rooms have a high raised bathtub. This room does not have a bathtub; instead, it's a standing area with handlebars for handicap access. The room has 4 beds: a queen size bed plus 3 single beds. Rooms are clean and nothing really to complain about. You pay for the room by the hour... minimum booking is a 6 hour... More

We used this hotel, situated in Terminal 1, during a 10 hour stopover in Singapore. We took the 6 hour option and paid $92 Singapore dollars, which was well worth it. The room was clean, quiet and perfect for our needs. It was great to have a room to freshen up and store our hand luggage and access to the... More

We stayed in the transit hotel for 4 hours after a long flight. We had a shower and a sleep for a few hours. The hotel is basic but really it is all you need. The rooms were quite nice, the bathroom well equipped with everything you need, including soaps/shampoo etc.

We stayed 6 hours here while transiting Singapore. This place is EXTREMELY basic: no amenities, no decoration, plain jane furniture. In addition, the AC was set at 16C. Turning it up or off resulted in the room warming to a sultry 18C. It may be better than the open terminal if you want privacy but bring a winter coat!

Exactly what we needed in our stopover from Paris to Australia. We arrived at T3 but they were booked out and we were directed to T1 where a room would be ready in 30minutes. Staff were friendly and room was ready right on time. Room was big, basic, quiet and sufficient. Bed was adequate and fell asleep very fast after... More

Absolutely what you need between flights. A small twin room with no windows, but it had a T.V., tea making facilities and a good sized shower and w.c. suite - a bit like a posh student room in a hall of residence. With a charge of £1 for six hours then $16.50 Singapore per hour after that - great value.

We just wanted somewhere to have a shower, freshen up, a bit of a sleep and some quiet before continuing our long haul flight. It was exactly what we were looking for, not too fancy, basic amenities, but still sufficient.

Arriving in Singapore in the wee small hours of the morning, en route to visit friends in S'pore, decided to spend a few hours in the transit hotel before meeting up with the friends for breakfast. Not having to negotiate immigration first and only having carry on baggage, meant that within 15 minutes of touchdown, I had my head down... More

If you are after a no frill accommodation without having to go through immigration then this is for you. The room facility is very basic, absolutely no frill and no windows. To even get basic amenities like tooth brush, shower cap etc, you have to ask at reception! You don't get WiFi in the room. I don't have a problem... More

We had a 6 hour layover and booked a room in advance online. They have these transit hotels at the various terminals in the airport so if you book the correct hotel you don't need to clear customs. If you have checked in your luggage you might want to find out what the process is, as the hotel is on... More
