“Great location .. Average room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW via mobile

Very good location. Near the sites and Clarke Quay. Many food and drink options nearby, as well as nearby metro stop, making this a centrally located place stay while exploring the city.
Small, clean rooms (with lovely embroidered sheets). Helpful staff. And ok wifi.
The breakfast was included but rather dismal. And the price was a bit high but not necessarily by Singapore standards.

Stayed January 2015, traveled with friends

Situated in a ideal part of Singapore this hotel is right in the centre of Clarke Quay with all its river restaurants a MTR station at the end of the street it makes it a breeze to get around Singapore. If walking is not an issue one can walk to a lot of the tourist sites that is how central this hotel is. If you are looking for five star accommodation you better look some where else but if you want a nice clean but small room that has everything that is required you cannot go past this hotel. A free WI-FI works well in all parts of the complex a nice buffet breakfast is included in the room price. If scramble eggs is not for you the chef will cook up eggs the way you like them. But the best part about this hotel is up on the roof at night it has a million dollar view over Singapore and the lights are amazing. At around 8.00 PM there is a laser light show coming from Marine Bay Sands complex. We had five great days staying at this hotel and if you are looking for a low cost accommodation you cannot go past Jayleen 1918 Hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a room on level six

It's near Clarke Quay center and take the subway easily and buy nice food closely.Building and furniture are old, but looks elegant. Breakfast is not bad,especially the Chinese type cuisine.If you don't mind the smell and old looking, that would be a choice.

It's the second time I live here. Still not bad. It is located at Clarke Quay and you can take the subway easily and buy nice food closely. WiFi & breakfast are free and good. The room is not too big but is OK for the business traveler. Sometimes the smelling is not good, so you have to open the window all day to figure out the problem. Building and furniture are old. So if you don't care these too much, I think it's a good choice to live the central of Singapore.

Room Tip: Higher floor maybe better.

Very expensive for the tiny room but hey its right near Clarke Key and it is Singapore.
Staff were excellent and looked after my suitcase while I did a train adventure to KL.

Location Excellent
Rooms Average
Staff Excellent
Food Average (but walk 1 min to the best food in Singapore)
WiFi Crap

Room Tip: I went a cheaper room without a window. This was a good decision because many window rooms just look...

This is expensive even by Singapore standards but this is Clarke Quay after all.
Close to train and river room is fairly small and the decor just average. Restaurant is like
a tuckshop canteen. Staff are friendly. Internet WiFi not good.

The builidng is old and not so much conservated. Small rooms e not very confortables. The maintanance could be better. The room smelt not good.
The staff is good, very friendly. Breakfast is regular nothig amazing, but has the necessary to the meal.
Resume in my opinion: I can find a hotel with a better structure with the same price.

Room Tip: Try to ask room in high floor.
