I stayed at Value Hotel Nice on Balestier Road this past December, 2013. I needed a place that was close to the city, but also far enough away to be less crowded, less expensive, and still surrounded by great food options. Balestier is a great place for these reasons.
I had a truly good experience at The Value Hotel Nice. The hotel was clean, quiet, and convenient. I was able to catch buses from Balestier Road, and even the walk to the nearest MRT station (Novena), was easy and quaint, considering you needed to cut through a nice, upscale set of streets to get there.
The food options nearby the hotel were excellent. Like much of Singapore, there are every manner of food choices just about anywhere you go. The best part about staying around Balestier is that the choices are great, and the prices very reasonable whether you are at a small eatery or at a restaurant.
The hotel itself has perfectly fine amenities for a budget hotel. The room baths are modern and clean (with shower, but no tub). The beds are fitted with excellent sheets and very comfortable pillows --- something often lacking at a budget hotel. There were 2 bottles of complimentary water every day, and an in-room kettle with instant coffee or tea should you need a quick drink before heading out.
I highly recommend this hotel to budget travelers. The rooms are good for 2. The air-conditioning is central, not by room, so it can be very cool at times. But this is better than the opposite, and the bed comes with a very warm comforter, so it is perfect for me. The TV is modern, but the cable package is limited. This should not be an issue though, because Singapore is too fantastic a city to be spending too much time in a hotel room.
Lastly, the front desk staff are absolutely excellent. Hats off to the ever-pleasant, courteous and helpful staff. The greetings when coming and going were always genuine. The front desk staff really do seem to wish you have a pleasant stay. Thanks for making the stay so welcoming and hassle-free.
