“Fulfills very basic needs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Had a staycation over the weekend. This hotel fulfills all your basic needs. Staff are not exactly friendly; they don't smile but they are polite and get work done. Room is small but typical of most cheap hotel rooms in Singapore. The room is clean, bedsheets/towels are clean. But the remote control for the tv and the mini-fridge wasn't working well. The hotel does not provide tissues and handsoap. But overall it was still a comfortable stay as we are not that fussy over these things. If you are on a budget, don't bother buying the hotel's breakfast. There are many 24/7 eateries outside the subway station which provide cheaper options and greater variety to try out local food.

Hands down, the location of V Hotel is very convenient for tourists. The station is just one minute away, it's literally right beside it. There is Kopitiam beside the mrt that is open 24/7 so don't have to order food from the hotel.
HOWEVER, if you're into shopping, this is not the place to be. There are no shops beside the hotel. The hotel is surrounded by HDBs (local housing). So if you like to shop, say, in Orchard, it would take you around 20 minutes to go back to your hotel to leave your stuff... Or if you shop in Marina Bay Sands, allot 20 minutes also to go back to the hotel. If that's ok for you, then V Hotel is ok.
To and fro airport is very easy also. The MRT beside the hotel will bring you to the airport, just transfer at Tana Merah. And if your flight back home is still in the afternoon (and check out is at 11), you can leave your bags with the concierge.

We stayed at V Lavender on transit to Ho Chi Minh. The rooms are very small. I wouldn't stay there for more than 1 night. We had 2 rooms and the fridge in our room didn't work. Smallest bathroom I have ever seen with very mouldy ceiling. Close to MRT station.

My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights after being in India and KL..Everything you read about the reviews is what you should expect. I was not at all surprised.
-Small rooms
-Slow lifts
-Crowded
No face cloths or hand towels in the bathroom, hard small-ish bed, no glasses to drink out of only coffee mugs.
More of a private hostel room than a hotel room.
Everything for us was modern and clean, but dont expect any luxuries.
We would probably try somewhere else next time but it was fine for us! They gave us free wi-fi (4 codes to use for 2 nights) but not sure if its cause we mentioned it was our honeymoon.
They looked after our bags for us while we spent the last day touring Singapore before our 8:30pm flight home.
The food court outside the hotel at the station was good and cheap but almost NO vegetarian food (hard to find anywhere in Singapore)
Did not go to the restaurant because by looking at the menu it was a total ripoff!!!
All in all, okay! Would suggest to anyone staying in Singapore 1 or 2 nights. Lavender was a good location and easy to get to.

Stayed at the V hotel Lavender on two separate occassions each of one night (23 Feb, 1 March). This is a budget hotel and you get what you pay for.

Rooms are small, very small, bathroom is tiny, shower cubical super tiny, but on both occassions the room was clean, bed comfortable, shower hot and suited our needs for overnight stays. TV, phone and room safe.

The hotel position is directly on top of the Lavender underground station and perfect for getting to and from the airport taking around 35 minutes or so at a cost of around S$3.00 per person each way.

Check in and out was efficient both times.

Staff we came into contact with were friendly and helpful.

Food shops surround the hotel, both asian and western (a couple open 24 hours), and a money changer right outside the main entrance (A couple of points lower than other money changers).

No tourist shopping nearby, but hop on the underground and you can be anywhere very quickly.

As a budget hotel this is great for an overnight stay, but for longer stays near to tourist destinations, there are better choices (at more cost)

A few gripes: On both occassions, towels, and a few amenities, but no soap. (we always carry a bar ourselves so no problem for us).

Try to avoid being near the lifts, this is a tiled area and the first stay we were awakened by people scuffling passed the door (always travel with ear plugs, it solved the problem for us). The second stay we were away from the lifts on the carpeted area and no noise pollution at all.

This is a large hotel and many rooms. It has 6 lifts, but at peak times, there can be a wait.

If your travelling to the airport for an early morning flight, first train from Lavender is 6.03am and allow 35 minutes.

Bottom line, great for ovenight stay, cost effective and generally value for money. We will stay again when next our needs are only overnight. If you are looking for a longer stay, or larger rooms, suggest looking elsewhere.

Room Tip: Stay away from the lift area and lower floors are better if you want a speedy exit.

We booked a Superior Room, which was small but probably normal for Singapore standards. You don't have much walking space in a room and couldn't fit more than 2 people in their standard room. Bed was pretty comfortable, and they let us check in really early without a fee (7.30am!) which was convenient. We didn't have breakfast included, but would recommend not getting it anyway and try the local food in the food court next to the hotel which was great. Pool was nice though could have done with more lounge chairs.
Pros: Great location with Lavender MRT literally next to the hotel which was great, and good bakery and food-court next to the hotel and MRT (Kopitiam) which was great for breakfast and snacks. They kept luggage for us after we checked out too.
Cons: We had a water leak from our air-conditioning vent onto the floor near the door, but the maintenance staff did fix it. Service at the hotel was pretty good even though it was very busy.
Overall, very reasonable price for a nice stay in Singapore. We stayed in 2 other hotels in Singapore and they weren't as good. Would recommend, especially if you can get a good price.
Cons:

Room Tip: Ask for one that overlooks the pool.

We spent two nights in Singapore, right after long flight from Europe. This hotel has an excellent location on top of the metro station, and so very easy and fast to reach from airport. Also access to other location in Singapore is very convenient.

Hotels lobby is nice and clean, but slightly over crowded easily. Public areas and rooms are clean, but rooms are very small and atleast our room was also bit dark.

Hotels pool area is actually quite nice, with reasonable view. Water was surprisingly cold.
