“Back again and again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

The best things about this hotel are the location, accessibility, convenience and food!

The room generally has no frills. As long as you constantly remind yourself that this is a budget bed and breakfast, you'll do fine.

I love the fact that there's a 24 hours convenient store just beside the hotel entrance. Its always good to know that you can buy food, drinks and your favourite paper at any time. Food is not a problem. Just 3 or 4 shop lots away, there's a coffee shop that serves one of the best Singapore bak kut teh (meat bone tea) I've tasted. And Balestier is a famous street for this local delight. So that's breakfast there every morning!

Getting to Orchard Road for shopping was easy. The bus stop was just right in front of the hotel and its just a 15 mins bus ride away, depending on the traffic. For those who loves supper, you can drop off at Newton Circus, again just a 10 mins bus ride away.

I will be returning.

Room Tip: Request a room with windows for natural sunlight.

In our last visit to Singapore we stayed in this hotel. My comments are as follows.

1 - The location is very good, therefore transport is available.

2 - 7/11 store is very near to the hotel.

3 - The rooms are small but the entire property is clean.

4 - We got a room in 69 S $.

5 - There are many open type restaurants near by where one can get cheap food with variety.

6 - The hotel is no smoking, therefore no smoking is possible in the rooms. You have to go out side the hotel.

7 - There is a swimming pool and small jakuzi on the roof of the hotel. It is nice.

All in all it is a good budget hotel in expensive country Singapore.

Room Tip: There are some rooms which have a window. Try to take these rooms.

d rooms r very small, if u r claustrophobic i advise u not to stay in this hotel. we encountered a very rude person in d front desk (a girl) while we were complaining about the rooms we got. we couldn't sleep because of the noise, we could hear people talking & banging of doors from the other rooms. when we asked for an extra pillow and comforter, they gave us used ones...this hotel sucks! the manager (a guy) is very helpful though. if u have complaints bout their services i suggest u look for the manager (a guy) and not the girl in d front desk (LG).

Room Tip: try to get a bigger room and stay on d 12th floor if possible so u can sleep well

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
