The location is what is good about this hotel. The room is OK but there was a smell in the room from the carpet. There is WiFi internet but it's not free. I cost like it's still the 20th century. SG$6 for one hour. And you have to use the whole hour at once. I Think you can find a... More

This is a nice budget hotel, but people may get better and newer hotels at a little more than the tariff of this hotel. The plus for this hotel might be a good location and secondly bigger rooms. Location is very strategic at Bugis, which is a nice for shopping and hawker food. Bugis MRT is about 7 minutes walk.... More

Don't expect the quality or service like a normal hotel or you will be disappointed; this is a budget hotel (and it's ~60 years old!). But what you get for the prices that are charged is very reasonable and quite good value for money. If you want to stay in Singapore on the cheap and just need a clean, convenient... More

Made a reservation through e-mail, they didn't ask for a deposit, which is a plus for us. The hotel's quite old but it's fine with us, our room was big and it faces the road with the view of the flower vendors just outside of the hotel. Very convenient location because it's walking distance from the train station. There are... More

Small old hotel with comfortable clean rooms. We had an extra bed but the room is still spacious enough for our luggages. Decent breakfast is free buffet style. A lot of hawker eateries nearby and fast food resto as well. Although, nearest mrt station is about 10 mins walk. There's a mall nearby with a grocery store at the basement.

This hotel was recommended by my colleague & just a walk in guest. Stayed here for 3 nights and the location is really strategic. Near with Bugis area and just about 10 minutes walk to Orchard Road. The service also quite nice & the price including with the breakfast.
