I get twice as much for half the price in Bangkok, but this is Singapore and even the cheap hotels are expensive. I asked for a king size bed and got two singles pushed together but that's a small item. There was a "bathtub" but it was really a sit-down shower the likes of which I have never seen. What's important is the water is hot and stream is strong. The TV worked with no glitches, and the staff was wonderful and efficient. When I asked they even brought a safe deposit box to my room.
The major benefit for me was the two massage chairs next to the office. I think I spent about S100 ($10 for 40 minutes). This is a major plus! 7-11 is a three minute walk but it's a longer walk to Geylang, which had some great coffee and food. Geylang is the Red Light district but I'm not interested in that so it was a bit of a downside when I called on friends and clients and told them where I was staying.
Given what you get for the price of all Singapore hotels it's going to be a while before I go back - far better deals in Bangkok, Manila, and other big cities. All in all Singapore hotels are way to pricey but the massage chairs and helpful, friendly staff made my stay worthwhile.
