“not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Hotel it self is close to the MRT-5 minutes walking. Santosa Island is very near,1 station away with the MRT, which was a bonus. Hotel staff good, knowledgeable, communicative, helpful. Hotel it self ok, for the level that it is in. Clean, with everything that you might need if you did forget it. Wirelesses internet for free in the rooms. Rooms are small but compact, clean and neat. To recommend it yes if you are staying not more then three nights.

This is quite small but clean hotel. It is located about 10 mins walk from the East West 16 (Outstram) station and 20 mins walk from China town. It is quite place in compare with other place and good for relaxing after whole day tour. There are also several pubs near by.

who needs a big room in Singapore? you only need a hot shower, plenty hot water, in a very clean bathroom... and sleep in a clean well function room with powerful aircon... those are the things you need from an hotel room in Singapore, since you'll spend the whole day go everywhere in the city... instead of throwing a lot of money in to expensive hotel room, that you'll enjoy for less than 6 hours daily, it will be better if you stay in this hotel and spend your money else where in the city... 81 Osaka is cheap, clean, chic, located in quiet but alive area (huge clean park, restaurant and cafe that opens until very late), short walking distance from outram park mrt station... for Moslems tourist, you can get halal chicken rice at Anana Cafe at the station, cheap and yummy...

Very good safe location in great 'surburban business area showcasing high end cafes and restaurants plus a great variety of local restaurants and food courts close to mrt and approx 15 min walk to centre of chinatown everything on your doorstep inc. supermarket , deli, traditional chineese massage etc etc . There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room RESULT!
A bonus was the Monkey Festival
when our street was cordonned off for a HUGE street party celebration tonight we walked out of the hotel to be greeted by a chinese theatre performance great stuff

However I do agree there were some negative points yes the air conditonning need some serious attention as the temperaure fluctuates dramatically the beds were quite hard, the pillows like bricks , the sheets need renewing as they were quite threadbare ,as were the towels , not enough plugsockets for recharging and no bedside lights or individual light switches the corridors need some sound proofing and some signs asking guests to be considerate to other guests by observing some courtesy when returning late at night !

After having to climb in bath tubs almost waist high to use a shower throughtout Europe the wet shower was a welcome change

The strange hotchpotch team of young recption staff team were very polite and helpful


For a short stay its ok

After reading many reviews from trip advisor, I went ahead and booked this hotel. The room is small and just enough for 2 couple. No extralace to sit on the floor. Upon reaching, it is easy to find the hotel.

I would NOT recommend this hotel at all. It is cheap and nasty. The beds are plastic!! The location is not China Town which they need to change the location title. The rooms are very basic and not worth the money at all.

Did not like my stay at all especially for what you are paying. I wanted a refund but agoda doesn't allow you to.

Positive note: The staff were fantastic still not enough to justify what they charge for these rooms

Room Tip: Don't book this hotel at all! You will be disapointed
