The combination of location and price is hard to beat. It's very close to "City Hall" MRT and many attractions are within walking distance. This place has been open for less than 2 years and many taxi-drivers still don't seem to know it. Just say you want to go to the Padang, opposite the Cricket Club, and everybody will know where to go...
Rooms and breakfast are fine, though the normal coffee on offer is pretty awful. I asked and was given a coffee from the espresso machine, but I don't know whether that's normal procedure.
I almost gave the hotel only 4 instead of 5 stars because they charge a lot for their own Internet access, which I just don't consider to be acceptable anymore today. But to be fair: the free service wireless@SG is available in much of the club and most of their rooms (not, for example, in their superior rooms, however) and they are happy to help you set up an account (you need a local mobile phone number to do this).
They keep your luggage for you after you've checked out and you can take a free shower at the club before you leave for the airport in the evening - nice!
They have a dress code in the club and hotel guests are expected to follow these rules, although quite a few don't seem to care (and get away with it).
