“Great Value, Service, Location hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

Stayed at this hotel with my mom and her friends. I could say that the hotel is nice, cheap and clean without compromising your safety. Front desk is also approachable and room amenities is also nice. Truly commendable service.

We never had a problem with our booking with Value Hotel Balestier even with a few days to go before leaving for singapore. We got lost the first time we got there because the signage was not as visible as the nearby hotels. Bus stop is just in front of the hotel but if you want to take the MRT, it is two bus stops away. The place is very clean and the staff are very accomodating. With a cozy bed, we had a good sleep after a long day. Though the place is a kinda small and not much room to move around. you will still feel relaxed and re-charged.

After an arduous trip by train from KL and trying to win on a linguistic argument with a taxi driver whom I finally convinced I was visiting Singapore and did not know my way around, took me to the Value Hotel, assuring me the price would be budget. I don't know what planet this driver was from but he dropped me off at the Value Hotel. The rate was around HS$100 a night. I got a room without a window and the bed was comfortable. The only problem with this hotel is, it is located in the Hooker district and there was a lot of noise in the hall way. I could not afford another night at this hotel but was overall happy with the staff. Lots of food places around the area and only a S$6.00 taxi ride to Orchard Road. Be forewarned, Singapore is not the cheap duty free experience it was many years ago.

Room Tip: Get a room without a window

My trip to singapore was 21-24 sept 2011 which is at the same time with F1 and every single hotel add surcharge to their room rate, as those were the only dates we could go so we booked what was available on the taravel agent.
If you want to reach the hotel by cheap public transport it takes time and not simple. Just ask for maxicab if youre travelling with friends or family at the ground transport desk at changi.
The hotel was cute with friendly staff, i got 2 standard room at second floor. Luckily i didnt hear much noises as written in the other reviews..the bathroom is small indeed, but it still make sense. Mrt novena is the nearest one but i went to orchard by bus 124 instead. Embark from the bus station right in front of the hotel. To get back to the hotel just alight at newton mrt and then take exit A, then take bus 124 and alight at bus station opposite the hotel.
To go to vivo city take bus 145 so you can see the city instead seeing nothing underground, it will also pass chinatown. Near the hotel you cand find McD, loy kee chicken rice, 7 11.
Check out was really simple, they didnt even check if theres anything missing from the room, they got us maxicab which is $5 cheaper from airport-hotel fare.
I'd stay here if i visit singapore next time. Thanks value hotel.

Room Tip: If you're on low budget trip and will be in the hotel to sleep and shower just ask for standard...

we stay at this hotel every time we visit singapore(about 5 times in a year). the rates are cheap but the quality is not...

it is conveniently located next to bus stop, shops and hawker's area...

lobby is neat and the staff is efficient and friendly. they even let us dump our luggage after checking out for some time, while we go round singapore...there was even a time i asked for an hour extension but did not get charged for it...on a weekend..

rooms are very basic, no windows, but clean...though you can hear people passing by your room every now and then...

all in all it is a good hotel to spend the weekend in...

Booked through Hotelclub.com and check-in/check-out were quick. Arrived at 10am and the room with a nice large window, was provided immediately without any fuss. Room is small but neat and tidy with clean linen and towels. Double Bed appeared new and comfortable. Buses stop right in front of the hotel which helped me save a lot by avoiding taxis. Just walking distance to Little India and good/clean restaurants. There are quite a few massage centers on Balestier Road but are scary as the massuses insist on 'happy ending' or extra. If you are a durian lover, they are available just opposite to the Hotel. Good value for money at S$ 109 per night. If you are travelling a lot in that region, they have an excellent, secured 'Left Luggage' room

Room Tip: Remember, weekend rates are higher.

The room is nice but not good wifi when you are at the corner. Staff are helpful and friendly.Good location, the bus stop just right there in front of the hotel. There are many good place to eat nearby. No close MRT but the bus stop will take you to the closet mrt like novena or toa payoh. Appreciate to stay in this hotel.
