“Just ok, no more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Location is ok, bit of a trek from an MRT. The rooms are small but clean, and it's pretty much to be expected in Singapore. Staff are friendly enough but no travel desk or help for tourists. Plus no pool or gym which you get in other hotels in the Value chain so I guess your money can be spent more wisely.

Been staying so many times in this hotel and it has always been a pleasurable stay. The front desk staffs are alway so nice and helpful. Its worth the price for a nice bed and a clean bathroom.
Its not so far to go to anywhere. Easy to hail a cab and bus stop is just right in front of the hotel. There is a mini mart next to the hotel. Totally convenient.

It was a school class trip to Singapore this month. The hotel gives a very welcoming fragrance and the reception is very friendly. The place is quite strategic with a convenient store downstairs and a food court not too far from it.

The rooms are quite decent. A bit small but is quite clean. It could the 2 people in the room and it was quite comfortable. It is a bit noisy as the doors and walls are quite thin and you could here the noise from outside. Toilet is also clean but still a little too small for comfort.

Overall, it was quite a good experience. Wifi was purchasable at SGD$10, quite the standard price in Singapore. The cleaners cleaned the rooms quite well and it is not a bad place for a cheap and comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Choose the 5th floor of the hotel which is quite good and quiet. Not all rooms have windows and even...

We've stayed here for 2 nights (5nov-7nov) and i found this room is very small but still fits to both of us. And the electricity plug, they only have ONE port in my room (idk if there's another port but i can't find other than this one) so i had to charge phones&cameras and boil water at a same port. Please enhance your facilities by adding another international electricity plug so we dont have to rotate every time we want to use it. Overall this hotel was good

Walls and doors are too thin to prevent outside noise from coming in. People slamming doors, talking loudly on hallway, TV in other rooms can all be heard in your room. There's a bus stop right in front of the hotel but nearest MRT stop is 1.4 km away. Room was cleaned 3 out of 4 days. Room was fairly small but bed was comfortable.

We stayed in Value Hotel Balestier from Oct 5-7 ; 3 rooms with 2 persons per room . Plus points for this hotel : Right beside the 124 bus stop which is the bus that brings you to Orchard Road ; there is a convenience store right beside the hotel ; front office staff and the rest of the staff were polite; clean rooms on the ground floor. Minus points : Very small rooms without windows , it can be kind of claustrophobic. Toilet and Bath very small too. No refrigerator not even a mini fridge.Free wi-fi is good for one day for 2 devices at least per room.Cable TV has limited channels.
All in all it was a pleasant experience considering its a budget hotel. I will not recommend to stay in this hotel if it will take you more than three nights since as I said it can be kind of claustrophobic.I will recommend it for short stays of a max of three nights or less, this is okay if you just want a place to spend the night in.

Room Tip: All the rooms are in the ground floor , there's not much choice max occupancy of the room is two...
