Unless the room is very small, other things were excellent. But If you don't like to walk, just don't choose it because it's15mins distance from MRT. Btw, there's many restaurant and store, it's good for buying something for daily use.

We stayed here for 3 days in the suite, the room was quite fine , the cleanliness and room service was good the main attraction is that there are lot of local food outlets nearby...we reached the hotel early, so the staff even helped us with the early check in

Not a decent toilet for twin room, it's with transperaring glass walls and door, fit for couples in dabble not for twin room, except this everything is acceptable for the price, also the location is far from the train station so prepare yourself for using taxi around there

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.
