The facilities and location are great, however the room itself was quite dirty, with long, dark hairs on the floor (my hair is short and red). The front desk staff are very helpful and friendly, but are let down by housekeeping.

Nice budget hotel. Nice location, near east end of Orchard road, near Bras Basah MRT station, Plaza Singapura, SOTA, SMU.. Walking distance to Bugis.. Currently the MRT Downtown line is being built in front of the hotel, hence there are construction works.

Located about 200m from Brash Basah station, ideal for the traveller looking for a clean place to sleep. Very basic but clean. No Breakfast included. If you a re a non smoker, make sure to ask to be placed on a non-smoking floor.

Nice Hotel. Great Location. Close to two metros. One which crosses three important lines. Clean and the rooms were nice. But nothing fancy about it. However very Unhelpful Staff. WiFi was down for a day and half but the staff did nothing to fix it. For a two star hotel it could e cheaper.

Just do not know why my toilet's pumping water keep automatic flushing itself on every 5/10 min, so it is very noisy and make me difficult to sleep TTT. Overall the room is ok for me, it is quite clean, aircond is very function, area is near MRT, just take a 5 min reach from MRT Bras Basah.

Not a bad hotel, room was clean but the bed wasn't very comfortable and the room was much smaller than shown in the pictures on the website. There was construction work going on outside however we weren't able to hear it which was great.

Simple, no-frills hotel. Location was perfect. Unfortunately, an MRT is being constructed in front of the building. Hence, more walking for detours. Your taxi fare will also be more expensive because of the detours. Good thing is when the MRT completes by 2017. Excellent service by the staff. They are very courteous and helpful. They can help you call for... More
