The only negative is that it is a bit out of the way of all the main hotel areas, (close to Chinatown though) so if we went out we had to plan it and most taxi drivers didn't know of it coming home.
However, there were so many pluses:
Being a smaller hotel it was more personal and comfortable.
Only been operating as a hotel for 3 years or so. Quiet location.
We got early check in at about 8.30-9am without any fuss.
The extra 1/2 day at the end we paid for was so worth it with the late airline departure time.
The hotel staff without exception were totally helpful charming and went out of their way to make things work for us.
They have a regular free shuttle bus that takes guests to several popular locations.
Taxis are quick and cheap, clean and AIRCONDITIONED!! Taxi drivers were all exceptionally delightful and patient.
Rooms although small (ex student accommodation) had wild but interesting decor but were really comfortable and beds were oh so good, linen was good and finally after 4 weeks of travelling, so were the feather pillows.
Room cleaning was of very high standard with all linen changed daily.
Dinner was of a reasonable standard and manager took a lot of pride in his service.
Breakfast, well what can I say, good coffee and cooking eggs... they don't get it. It was acceptable. A pool would have been a nice addition.
We took it as part of Singapore airlines stopover deal and it was very good value with all the touristy add-ons
