The apartment was spacious, well fitted, and convenient, with lounge, bedroom, kitchen and bath. The daily breakfast in the garden was wonderful. The gym was well equipped and the roof top pools were amazing. For the price paid, this accommodation is amazing.

We stayed for 1week in January 2013, two adults and two teenage sons. We were given two adjoining rooms, which gave us a massive room to share. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two kitchens and lounge rooms! The rooms were clean and well kept. The hotel itself is basic but more than comfortable. The rooftop pool offers some great views....

We stayed here last November 2012. The location of the hotel is very convenient to restaurants, bus stops, and train station. Very ideal for family since they offer 2 bedroom suite which is very spacious. They also have swimming pool, children's playground, play gym for younger kids. What I also liked about this small hotel is that they have kids... More

I stayed here while the MRT was being built and after the initial shock of having a (albeit high) apartment overlooking the works with a adjoining door into the next apartment I was moved into another one and fell in love with the place.

I recently stayed here with husband, two children and mum. We were in a two bed room apartment which was well suited to us. The apartments are a little older, but very clean with kitchen facility. The pool area is lovely overlooking the city. Close to MRT. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very good location would recommend.
