This hotel is quite central, a walking distance from the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and the Red Garden Food Court, but not nearby any shopping mall (Comtar is about a half hour walking distance away). The room was slightly rundown with age, but generally acceptable and clean, and quite spacious. The bathroom was spacious – it has a shower area... More

Went with my family. Really recommend to book via online since you may stumble upon cheaper rates and more value. Free parking is provided but make sure you enter the correct parking lot. Breakfast is pretty nice. There are also other services at the hotel such as tailor that can make you a suit in 24hours time, hair salon, pool,... More

The room was clearly in need of a revamp, especially its bathroom. The stains in bathtub showed its age. Need to replace the shower head as well. All in all, the condition was not up to a 4-star hotel standard. But the buffet breakfast was sensational. A wide range of food from noodles to egg station to danish to congee... More

We had a no smoking room and arrived to the overpowering smell of smoke in the room. One call to reception and we were immediately moved to another room without a seconds delay. Fantastic service and the 360 revolving restaurant upstairs was a delight. The room was clean, huge and the bed very comfortable. I recommend this hotel as great... More

An overnight stay with a group but good location - clean big spacious rooms though basic and a bit out-dated as far as the interiors are concerned. But is centrally located with the night life just around the corner and an Indian Restaurant across the road. Sea facing hotel - excellent value !

Stayed last weekend for two nights in the hotel. Had a great room overlooking the sea and the E&O Hotel across the road. The rooms were incredibly spacious and comfortable however the general condition of the rooms could be improved. It was like stepping back into the 1980's in terms of decor and colour scheme. The breakfast was very good... More
