Family of 5 stayed for one night in March. Email communication with hotel was handled promptly. We stayed in family room which had 2 doubles and 1 single and there was still plenty of space in the room which is a nice change to other places we have stayed. The decor was very interesting lime green walls and ceiling and... More

I checked in on the 29/03 - 31/03 with my family (4 adults, and my daughter (1 year 10 months)). After reading reviews from Tripadvisor, we decided to give it a try staying at this hotel. We booked a room to accomodate 4 persons. When we arrived, the check-in process went smoothly, and the counter staff was quite helpful. The... More

I've stayed in family room for 5 person and the room is big enough for us...clean and simple...the bathroom is good and clean with adequate water supply for showering. The best thing of this hotel is the location which is very strategic with the Kopitiam and 711 just a cross the street.

This is a reasonably centrally located hotel with 5-7 mintues walk from the MRT station (the metro system in Singapore). The hotel is clean and basic. The rooms are of tolerable size, not large but not too small either. The staff are reasonably helpful. The place does the job if you are only looking for a place to sleep whilst... More

I've been to Singapore many times and I'm used to staying in small rooms with just enough space to go in and out a room (we are always on tight budget hehehe). Since this is the first time that we are bringing the kids with us, I scout around (thru friends & the Internet) for better accommodation (we are still... More

I wanted a budget hotel with a central Singapore location, like near Little India with Muslim halal food available, near an MRT station, and/or near Orchard Road. I had my wife and 2 small kids, otherwise I would've been satisfied with a hostel. We were there 4 nights and was totally satisfied with the Strand. It's also near an interchange... More

I emailed each hotel I was keen on to see whether they could offer a better rate than the numerous websites.... The Strand Hotel is located near Orchard Road, - I had decided earlier on that the hotel would have to be... More
