In the expensive world of Singapore lodging, this hotel is a great deal. Room was large, clean and comfortable, staff was helpful, and the location puts you both close to the airport (5am taxi ride to Changi was only 17 SGD, even with the 50% surcharge that apply to rides between 12am-6am) as well as easy access to downtown via...

Excellent service, great room layout, friendly staffs and close at the heart of SG. Will surely come back again sometime soon! This hotel is a hidden gem and was over the top pleased to had found it. Hubby and I had an excellent come back experience in SG after two years. We missed our rat race life here.

We're looking for a hotel in Joo chiat with a good review and we found this. True enough, we were very much satisfied in our stay here. Small but very clean room. The location is near bus and train station. Too bad they do not offer breakfast. A lot of food hawkers nearby though,

This hotel is a hidden gem. Found it by accident and I'm so glad! We've stayed here twice and will always be be back. Positives: 1. Unlike average hotel rooms in Singapore, the rooms (and the bathrooms) here are spacious. And very clean. For the prices offered, it's very affordable. 2. Across the street and around the hotel, you can... More

Only stayed for one night but I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. Cleanness and presentation are their priority. WiFi works fine in the room. Location is also alright, less than 10min walk to the Paya Lebar train station. Shops are also all around the train station.

Faithful Travel Buddy and I (me 71, her close behind) lodged here for one week in March, 2015 as part of two months of independent travels in Southeast Asia. We thought the hotel's neighborhood on Joo Chiat road was one of the most fascinating we have ever visited. It's mixture of Malay, Indian, Vietnamese, and Chinese peoples, restaurants, and stores...

Renovated Hotel in good condition. No Breakfast possible but many opportunities arround. 10-15Min walk of MRT Paya Lebara. I was with my wife there and liked the Hotel. The Wi-FI didn't work 50% of the time. But we are not depended on the Internet so it was not a problem. The only thing which disturbed me litte was the short... More

We are a travelling couple, transiting one nite in sinagpore and stayed at Champion Hotel on Jochiaat st, Singapore. Hotel is nicely decored, room is spacious, shower plentiful and basic amenities provided. less than 30min from airport, better option than staying in hotels around the hotel and or sleeping on the airport itself

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.
