We arrived at the hotel not expecting much and we were mildly surprised. It is a budget hotel. Those expecting more from it would have been disappointed. Being such a hotel meant it was very busy. Regardless of this, staff were always smiling and glad to help.
The rooms were tiny, but adequate for ones needs, especially if you intend to be away most of the day. Again, I stress, it is a budget hotel. The amenities were great. But sparse. The sheets seemed they had seen their last legs years ago and the toilet was tiny.
Overall, its location was great. Being over the train station meant you could go anywhere. The main pluses are the friendliness of the staff and the basic necessities. The negatives were the constant throb of people, but this would be expected in a place like Singapore. An amusing incident was the door man texting on his mobile while opening the door. Again this had to be expected as every one seems to have their heads buried in their mobiles here.
Would I go there again. Probably not, but don't let that stop you.
