It is near bras basah station, a kopitiam located next to the hotel so we didn't have to worry about breakfast. The room was quite small, but still comfortable. There was a construction site of bencoolen station in front of the hotel, but it didn't cause any noise. The staffs were nice. Overall, it was a pleasant stay at this... More

Excellent location: the hotel is close to the main shopping area of Singapore (Orchard Road) where there are a lot of cafes & restaurants and the MRT (subway). There's a 24/7 food court (Kopi Tiam) and a convenience store that's just a stone's throw away from the hotel. If you're just looking for a place to sleep in after a... More

Poor quality service except for main reception who were pleasant and helpful. Other staff seemed 'not bothered' about clients and more interested in telephones. One day our room was not cleaned at all even though the clean room sign was hung on the door.

Pros: Easy to locate. 5-10 minutes walk to Dhoby Ghaut station. Easy access to malls. Walking distance to orchard area. Near tourist destinations. Cons: Construction ongoing infront of the hotel. A bit pricey. Takes time for them to clean the room because when we got back from a morning tour around 12-1pm, the room is still not clean, towels not... More

Situated closely to orchard road, it has easy access either by bus or mrt (dhoby ghaut and bras basah). It's also close to lots of shopping malls such as Pomo, plaza singapura, and even walking distance to bugis which makes it very convenient. Staffs at the hotel also very approachable and after long day back to hotel, room are made... More

Stayed in this hotel for 1 day. Friendly staff. Strict about check-in times though. Got a room on the 3rd floor with a view of the street (currently undergoing construction). The room was small but clean, the toilet/bath even smaller but adequate for just a night's stay. Was fortunate not to have noisy neighbors in adjacent rooms but the walls... More
