Regardless of other reviews who may believe it was not one of the best hotels available, I've always been very satisfied with staying here again and again whenever I make my annual trip to Singapore. The best consideration about the location of the hotel is that it's only a ten minute walk to the nearest MRT station (Alljunied) and VERY... More

Small dusty rooms with stained bedlinnen and nowhere to place your things. Shower has to be taken over toilet and sink. Positioned in a red light district with mostley halal food available and no western options availible at all. But its cheap and that cant be said for many places in Singapore!

Unclean sheets. Very bad smell in the room and on the lobby. Window blocked, not allowed to open. I could not sleep because of the smell and bad air. Staff was ok. I could leave my luggadge there after checkout somewhere next to the exit door. For the money you can still find better.

Don't book room in this hotel. Terrible smell in rooms. WINDOWS CAN'T BE OPENED!!! Service is ok. Bed is small. Look for price it's higer than you see - look for 10 + 7 commission add! It's near mrt station.

For the price, I was very happy. Sure, the room was small, the bathroom was small, there was nowhere to put clothes, and it was in the Red Light district. But if you want five stars, you need to pay a whole lot more. The room was clean, the staff friendly, the shower was hot, the A/C great, and I... More

First of all, the Hotel itself is good. I like it here, service is good, friendly, my room is clean everytime they clean it (Im a messy girl), location is good near to MRT.. BUT the streets and the environment are NOT for females who travel alone. If the hotel is located at a 'safer' friendly place I would have... More

However, MRT is near and make it easy to move all around the city, food is everywhere and cheap (cheap not being what could qualify best singapore), room is clean, bathroom as well, internet run smoothly and the...

The room was so small when we stayed in room 412. The whole floor smell differently from level 6. We have changed to room 612 due to stink drainage from bathroom. Higher floor is always better. The Chinese guy wearing glass in the reception is not very helpful. On the contrary, Another receptionist- Ibrahim, very good customer service attitude, thumbs-up~~... More

We were there for only one night and after that we found a better place to stay. Although it´s clean, aircon is quiet, it´s still very small and rather far away from the city center. Didn´t like the neighborhood as well. You´ll find better places for the same value.
