Considering the prices for a non-hostel room in the country, with the discount rate we got online for a 3-person room - what we paid for what we got here was pretty much a good deal overall.
The room / hotel:
As expected however, the rooms were small and the amenities basic, but feels old and worn, but at least it was available and working. No complaints about the beds, washroom feels antiquated, but serviceable. Service from the counter staff was prompt and sufficient, but I've gotten friendlier service from cheaper accommodations.
One incident worth mentioning was how we came back one night to our room to see our TV on, even tho we left with the TV off. We assumed the cleaning crew felt he/she needed some entertainment while he/she was working, haha.
It's about a brisk 10 minutes walk from the MRT Aljuneid station, which was mostly straight down the road, although some familiarizing with google maps streetview might be needed to avoid feeling lost.
Knowing what sort of a neighborhood the hotel was at helped to give a proper expectation of what to expect, and I was not surprised about what we saw. It was definitely a fun experience being there compared to the slick and polished look of the rest of the Singapore that I know and experienced previously.
Taking into account all proper expectations, I would have giving it a 5/5 rating, but in the grand scheme of things, an overall rating of the property is more appropriately 3/5 - average.
In other words: it's a great budget hotel, just don't expect too much!
