Have been staying here whenever my husband is in town and it's just a very comfortable hotel with excellent front desk personnels. The hotel was recently refurbished so mega up points added! Very good hotel in distinctive Joo Chiat area. If you want shopping malls there are Parkway Parade Shopping Mall and 112 Katong Mall. Food everywhere around the hotel... More

The hotel location is very near to most of the well known food place like katong laksa and hajjah maimunah restaurant. I enjoyed my stay... More

I chose this so called hotel because 1. Budget and 2. It is closed to the Bintan ferry terminal for our next destination. However, with the word hotel sometimes we would expect more especially my previous one was a hostel. I suggest if you are coming with children, this is certainly not a suitable location. It is situated in the... More

I had an overnight in Singapore and stayed at this hotel. It is close to the airport 15 mins and had many places to eat within walking distance. The rooms are small but very clean with great water pressure (hot water) and working air con. The downfall, it's in the karaoke district and many lady walkers around. I walked alone... More

such a small hotel, but the staff is very friendly. and it's equal to the price. the best choice if you want save your money for other things. but there's no free wifi, you must pay it first. and the air conditioner is very cold, no need to worry about that.

We stayed here for 5 nights last july 17--21, 2013. I can say this is very affordable, clean, peaceful, place to stay. The staff especially Floy, a Filipina (kababayan) was very accomodating and helpful in teaching us how we can reach places in singapore. Our room is just fine, with toiletries, 2 bottles of water everyday, coffee and tea. It... More

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.
