This place is very nicely located near to bust stops and Bugis MRT (5 mins walk). Vegetarians restaurant can be found at fortune center just next door. The complementary breakfast was only okay, but the location kind of makes up for it. They would only accept daily cash for room rent to confirm your reservation.

The 1st time we were here was on Apr 2014. We had a pleasant stay, the family room was big, however the room was outdated but that was not a problem for us. And in last Apr, we stayed here too. We had a family room, and got different room. It was smaller but still big enough compare to other... More

The hotel is located within 3 minutes walk from Bugis MRT station, Bugis Junction, Sim Lim Square and only 10 minutes walk to Little India. For food there are several hawker locations with cheap and great Asian food. The rooms are for Singapore standards spacious, clean and comfortable. I stay here at least 3 or 4 times a year both...

If you are looking for a budget place to stay in Singapore this is the place. The hotel is situated in a safe and good area close to MRT and good shopping at Bugis. The room is simple and really clean.

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
