“Convenient for a city trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Room and bathroom are very small - especially for more than 1 person, but modern and functionel. The best worth is the location on the MRT route from airport to city, directly above the MRT station "Lavender". That is ideal for a short stopover in Singapore. The airport can be reached in about 30 minutes by train, the city in about 20. You can get from the train to the hotel entrance without getting wet when it is raining, which is not seldom in Simgapore.
The next MRT station towards the city is "Bugis" where you find a lot of shops and restaurants. From there you can walk in 10 minutes to "Little India".
The hotel has a lot of rooms, so that there is always a "coming and leaving" - also of big tourist groups.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which is not situated between the two tower twins because of the view!

We went there for our second night stay in Singapore so we were familiar with the size of room and bathroom so it did not shocked us when we saw the size of mini bar or the electric kettle and size of bathroom. Also we did realized that all the hotels in Singapore don't have bidet for toilets. However compare to our first night stay at enother 4star hotel of Singapore, the breakfast was much better. If you compare to Malaysia it was average but compare to singapore it was very good. We payed 350 MYR for 1 night stay with breakfast, 50 MYR of it was for tax and services. Then we had to pay for parking since parking was not free, we had to pay 12 $ singapore dollars. The location of Hotel is good and quite, you can get to National Stadium, Little India, City Sqare Mall and Mustafa Centre by walking, it is 1KM far. The room and bathroom were clean but very small. It looked very new. I loved bed sheets, very nice clean and good smelling. Stuff were friendly and nice. It was easy to find in GPS since all that place is named V hotel and can see the sign from main street. The pool was also nice.

Room Tip: We had pool view in 7th floor, not too much to see. I think they are all the same.

I stayed at Hotel Lavender for nearly a month when I first moved to Singapore, as it was booked by my company. It's a very modern corporate style hotel, above the MRT station - very conveniently located for first-time visitors to Singapore, but somewhat lacking in charm and character. As noted by other reviewers, the rooms are pretty small - mine was fine for one person, but would have been crowded for two. The rooms were adequately furnished, but an additional mirror and bedside light would have been nice!

The staff were mixed - a few were very friendly, but the front desk were not particularly helpful - when I attempted to adjust my booking I was told they couldn't help and I had to instead phone a sales manager. Laundry was also exorbitant.

Still, on the plus side the pizzeria isn't bad (if expensive compared to the much cheaper Asian foodcourt below), and the pool is lovely.

The streets immediately around the hotel are pretty dull, but Arab st is about 15mins walk away, and Bugis another 10mins from there (or one stop on the MRT); Little India is a short bus journey, and it's only about 15mins on the MRT to get into the centre of the city.

All in all, I'd recommend this as a convenient and reliable option, but if I was travelling for pleasure I'd be looking to stay somewhere a little less anonymous.

Room Tip: 50% of rooms look inwards at the pool and rooms opposite - I'd suggest requesting a room looking...

Advantage is the location, but the rooms are really small and the bathroom even smaller. Service is poor be it at the reception or room service. It was expensive for the room of that size. But I used MRT to travel within Singapore and since the hotel is just above the lavender station it was convenient,

Overall it was just average.

We just finished a cruise from Hong Kong to Singapore on Royal Caribbean lines. The hotel was easy to get from the cruise ship terminal with Metro. The check in at the hotel was fast, efficient and friendly. As I was walking in the lobby, I was fortune enough to meet the Guest service manger. He was very nice to us gave us some tips of where to visit in Singapore and nice places to eat.
The room was as nice as any other hotel I stay in the orient. After Singapore, we went to Shanghai China and surrounding area for a week. All hotels in HK and China we stayed at were 4 to 5 stars and I think this hotel is about the same. I think all hotel rooms in the orient are smaller than in North America but if your there to site see how much time do you spend in the room? Breakfast was good as always ate to much.

Stayed here for a night on a business trip. I know rooms are expensive in Singapore but the room I stayed in was literally a box. In the shower in the morning I couldn't even wash my hair without banging my elbows off the wall. It may be a good location, but really it is uncomfortably small.

First of all the rooms are tiny!! can't find a place to open my luggage!!

There were only two towels in the bathroom, so i called the service n ask for more towels, but she didn't understand what i said!! (gosh, i thought the singaporean are good or ok in English or am i wrong?)

Please do NOT take the elevator in the morning, coz it will stop at every single floor, staff are trying to push in even its full loaded!!

Apart from the hotel is closed to mrt, i don't see any point of staying in this hotel ever again!! (i think is a kinda 3 stars hotel only, not 4)
