The area is an extension of Geylang, if I understand it right. Hence, you may consider it a part of the red light district, but it did not bother us a tiny bit. Throughout the duration of our stay, we did not experience anything untoward inside the premises nor outside. Locationwise, there are KTV bars all over but they are... More

The staff are nice and helpful. The room is clean and the size is just right for an affordable price. One minor problem is the transportation because the hotel is quite far from the MRT. Though there is a bus stop a few steps from the hotel, the bus' (Bus 33) interval takes some time so you must allot a... More

Booked the hotel for my Aunties and we were very satisfied with the services of the staff. They were very friendly and accommodating. For a budget hotel in Singapore it has exceeded my expectation. And it is very easy going to city because there is a bus stop just beside the hotel. Thanks Moira, Aqim, Ted and the uncle (forgot... More

Soooo, there's a few things i could highlight from this hotel. This is my first time being in this hotel tho because the price is quite cheap. Plus side: - a few steps away to bus stop that will take you to the nearest MRT station (dakota/ paya lebar) - the staff is very helpful and nice - many local... More

Great for overnight stay. Clean, quiet and cheap. Small room, no window so gets a bit stuffy with no airflow. Good restaurants nearby open late. Better and much cleaner than most other places at this price

Non smoking room with very strong smoking smell, the hallway even much worse. If you are a non smoker, go to any other hotel, or other fragrance chain hotel. We can not sleep whole night due to the strong smokin smell.

Staying in Joo Chiat

Neighborhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighborhood is packed with colorful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
