Yes, the rooms are tiny. But they are well thought out with everything you need. The hotel is modern and centrally located to the downtown area. Mrt is a short walk. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

boutique hotel with warm hospitality, good location and very comfortable to stay despite the hotel room is a little bit small. I like the breakfast very much, not plenty of food but quality over quantity. Also I can work in the lobby.

This hotel has a restaurant with the same name on the ground floor and offers a great set lunch deal for $13.80++. I opted for the roast chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables and supplemented with a tea at the end. Food was very tasty and service was friendly, although a little slow. Good choice in Purvis St.

We read about the hotel before we booked ie because of the review. However when we arrived and taken to the room, we were shocked as how small the room was. We are small people but we had to squeeze to get around. The bed was small although comfortable. Everything were provided including tea, coffee, kettle, hair dryer and phone... More

Rooms are small but got everything. And looks great. Bed is good only minus thing is that airco is directed on the bed so that makes it locally very cold. Hotel is close to the shopping malls, MRT, and convention center. Staff is friendly and helpfull.

Very small room which I liked. Service was excellent. The workers knew what I wanted before I did. They arranged for an excellent driver who really helped me enjoy my trip by knowing where the stores were.

Had a one night stop over in Singapore and found this boutique hotel just the ticket. Great location for eateries, sights, bars and shops saved money and time on metro/cab fares. Clean and well run.

pros: close to 2 MRT stations, free portable 4G device, compact but has-it-all facilities cons: room-cleaning needs to be improved (more than one time they forgot to supply me some of the room amenities), very small room Good for business or short-term stay.

This is a boutique hotel set in a renovated shop lot behind Raffles Hotel. We got the Urban Bunk which is a double decker bed but has all the modern conveniences one could ask for (but minus the floor space).
