Location: Tick Price: Tick Free wifi: Tick Room size: A lot to be desired. The hotel itself is very conveniently located for the right price (cheap for Singapore). The room itself leaves a lot to be desired. It is comfortable and convenient but incredibly small, claustrophobic is probably the correct term. I would stay here again if in Singapore but... More

The location of the Southbridge is perfect - close to great eateries, temples, museums. The room we had was servicable - and had a window onto Temple Street. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. The bathroom was probably trying to be too clever for the space. But for small rooms there is not a lot else you can... More

booked a room over night before our scheduled cruise and another night after it. its a small room, just wide enough to fit a bed; if you have more than 2 luggage, you will have no place to stand. the walls are very thin too, sounds from the whiskey bar outside will get thru, but it wasnt bad.

Hi we stayed for 6 nights and 7 days in this hotel. It was clean modern and the location was great. A nice bar is located at the ground floor with live acoustic music. The staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful. The owner was very warm and friendly. The 7 days stay is equivalent to one night stay at... More

Love the whiskey bar located below the hotel. Great ambience, easy talking with live band. Good selection of food, somemore at 50% off. Prime location, just 10mins walk away from the nearest train station.

This quaint looking hotel is located almost at the heart of Chinatown Singapore and really a stone's throw from 3 major MRT lines. The MRT is the underground metro of Singapore. Greta food everywhere and no need to take their breakfast package. However, the rooms are small BUT very comfortable. The bathroom is not just adequate its NICE. The room... More

Beware! No sleep untill 5am!! The hotel is in a very old building, thus the walls are paper-thin, and it was as if they were made out of cardboard. I could hear ppl coming in and going out, and everything that goes on and every conversation in the hallway. Basically everytime someone opens their door you'd wake up. After complaining... More

Hotel is conveniently located in Chinatown and a street away from the MRT (metro) with its rapid access to other pars of the city. Upon arrival, we were momentarily confused searching for the registration desk until we realized it doubles as the bar for the club and restaurant on the ground floor. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. Initially, we... More

I read before that the rooms are small. But to be honest. U came to Singapore to stay in the hotel or to see the city? We did not mind about a small room just to sleep. The hotel is very clean and modern. The room (217) small as we know,but enough space to move. Window was looking to a... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
