I booked this hotel with Booking.com for October 1 to October 4, 2007 after reading their reviews of this hotel. I moved to another hotel an hour after check-in because I cannot withstand the pungent waxy smell of the room that is irritating to the nose and throat which will eventually make a person feel sick but I was made...

i swore, back in 1988, when i was in hong kong that i would never again stay in a room so small you could not open the door all the way without it hitting the bed. it took 17 years for history to repeat itself in singapore. all the furniture seemed to be 2nd hand salvage, smelled musty and was...

This place was a real mess. Though Singapore is said to be a very clean city, this hotel is located in the (rather dirty) suburb of "Little India" and the surroundings are filthy. The door lock in the hotel room didn't look too safe, so I had to carry all my valuables around all day long. The ensuite toilet was... More

I booked double room but came alone. The hotel gave me a single room (but I have to pay double room rate!). The mineral water available with two color broken seal bottle. The towels are thin because old, the blanket is also very old. The television has no remote control, so I never use it during 3 nights there. The... More

We booked the Boon Wah Hotel and the best way to summerise here is "you get what you pay for". We lost deposit and moved hotel straight after checking in. It was smelly, dirty sheets etc.. Granted their was Air Con, but all this did was blow the dust and cob-webs around the room (no joke!!!!). Not the most welcoming... More

It's a room for under US$30 so you can't expect too much- the floor is painted, the blankets are worn, there are a couple of insects in the bathroom with you and the lock on the door is a laugh (however, they do supply you with a rubber door stop). The water pressure in the shower was first-class, though! I... More
