I had a short (about 12 hour) layover in Singapore between flights, and since there didn't seem to be any reasonable options out by the airport, I booked here. Overall, it was actually better than I expected. The room was very clean, staff were friendly and accommodating, and the price (just under USD $70) was about as cheap as you'll... More

Very well renovated, modern touches, clean and spacious by Singapore standards. Convenient location to local cuisine in Rococo-style shop houses, the old world charm of Joo Chiat area and the Malay/Muslim experience of Geylang. Walk to nearest metro station at Paya Lebar MRT is 10 minutes which connects to the rest of Singapore. Good wifi service.

We stayed for one night and the staff were great at accommodating us by checking us in way earlier than normal and charging us just a tiny bit extra. Same for on the way out. This makes a big difference when you are tired and simply want to lie down and sleep! Window view was weird as we looked out... More

We stayed here for 5 days and i can say everything is good. The place is nice, good staff and the place always smell good. The place is only a 4 storey building. The place is 15-20 minute walked from the station.

Stayed for 6 nights at the hotel while touring around the city. Around 15 mins. walk to Paya Lebar MRT station. Perfect value for your money. They don't offer breakfast but there are many restaurants near the hotel.

I booked a twin-bed room for four nights. The room is clean, tidy and big enough for two people although the two single beds are very standard size. The bathroom is spacious and the water is strong enough. I stayed in a room with windows, which made me feel better, not like staying in a jail. One thing about the... More

This was a great hotel to choose as a one-night Stopover as it is quite close to the airport but is clean, compact and has the basics of everything that you need. I would recommend this hotel for a single traveller, not for two or more. The room was small in size but I was not disappointed as it was... 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.
