Room was tight but room service was done everyday, fresh towels are given everyday. Aircon was excellent but the hotel charged for the Wi Fi which was a let down but overall we are happy with...

My Sister and I stayed here. The Staff particularly, Robin, was very helpful to my Sister who has disability issues by allowing her to use his phone. And also by recommending a place to eat which was just across the road from the hotel. The food there was excellent. Accommodation tight in term of room size and the area for... More

So many out there don't often really read words: stars and pictures for Generation X to Z who are too busy playing games to read the small print, never mind the subtext. We had two nights at this hotel which advertizes itself as a budget hotel perfect for business people. The rooms (like most in Singapore) are not used to... More

.... but if you explore the city, end up in your bed deadtired at midnight: it'll do. breakfast? who cares, great alternative at Mac only 5 minutes away. Depending on the other visitors it can be quiet. The staff did their best to get us a quiet room and actually refunded because we ended up in a smaller (but nicer)... More

Booked the hotel via Agoda for a night. Due to unforeseen circumstances unable to stay for the night. Contacted Agoda to change the date to a week later, Agoda tried to arrange with the hotel but it was rejected. Understandable. Agoda's staff was helpful and patient to listened on my unfortunate event. Contacted the hotel directly hopefully they will be... More

Chinatown hotel is not a tourist low cost hotel to stay, it's more like a spot for Singapore General Hospital to sleep overnight here because it's just munite away of walking from the SGH. And the facilities of this hotel was terrible, the rooms were small, though the hotel serves breakfast, the breakfast area was too small to have breakfast.... More

I stay in Singapore with some frequency and wanted to be close to Teck Lim Rd. on my last trip. I booked a room at Chinatown Hotel for about 85 SGD per night, which seemed rather pricey considering the overall tripadvisor review, but it was a last minute booking. Although the location is excellent, the room itself was terrible. There... More

The location is about approx 5 - 10 minutes walk to either outram park or chinatown mrt station. Room is quite clean and quite comfy. Tips: take a walk to chinatown area (smith street) that has variety of eating places.

Not a place to come if you're not a student with a low budget. Very small rooms. Not so clean. Location is the only good thing. Rooms are very practical. Not much else to do in it. Lightswitches didn't work in my room. Staff were slow. Overall, my experience here was subpar. The only reedemable quality was the cheaper price.... More

My partner and I wanted to walk all of Singapore in a week, so we needed a hotel for long term stay. As we are both students, we needed a budget style accommodation. As you may have discovered, hotels in Singapore are extremely expensive due to the shortage of land and high cost/quality of life. Within the budget hotels range,... More
