It's not easy to find cheap hotel in this city. Especially if you are looking for a hotel that close to the market. Since this hotel is located in the Bugis st. area, so you will have to walk to get to the famous Bugis Street. The bedroom and bathroom are tidy, though not big. The hotel look old but... More

The location is very good, it is next to the CC2 Exit. The ROOM is clean and big for family of four (but there is no bathtub). (after renovation). The upper floor is still renovating, and there is a construction beside the hotel. Therefore sometimes, it is a bit noisy. And there is an food court around the corner which... More

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night with friends. It was a last minute booking and we got a room with twin beds, breakfast included, for S$150 (this includes taxes). The hotel is very outdated. The room was spacious compared to other budget hotels but everything about it is old, including the smell. The fridge was empty and there was... More

Arrived early in the hotel (9:00 AM) and were told that our room is ready if we want to check-in. The family room was massive with two queen size beds and one single bed with a table and chairs to sit and eat our take away comfortably and a safe deposit box. The room was newly refurbished and it was... More

Stayed here for four nights on a short holiday. The hotel is plain and comfortable but fairly spacious for a twin bed room. The hotel is a bit old and run down however as a base to come back to while out shopping it was perfectly fine. The shower was a bit annoying and not comfortable to use. However the... More

This hotel is in a great location - at the start of Orchid Rd, a few blocks from Raffels and a short walk to the Marina Bay area. They are currently building a new MRT stop in the same street - which will only make things easier once completed but it is only a very short walk to the closest... More

Strand is well located , not far from MRT metro station or bus routes. It is a popular hotel, probably for its reasonable rates including breakfast with large enough rooms. Our room was overlooking the new construction site on bencoolen street, closed for that reason. Otherwise, Orchard st is just walking distance, the great Raffles Hotel is also walking distance...

Hotel is average, but still had a pleasant stay. Hotel room was very dark and not very well decorated. Hotel walls are not painted very well and choice of colours made it appear dark and it was poorly lit. However, room was clean and spacious and the maids were very pleasant and helpful. Apart from Phleen, hotel staff need to... More
