“Just not good enough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Booked for a one night stopover. It's in a great area on a good street, but the hotel itself was a big letdown. The room itself was ok, but the bathroom was dirty (I found a finger nail on the floor), there was lukewarm rather than hot water and the shower head was mounted too low on the wall for anyone over 5ft 6in. Oh and the aircon was switched permanently on with no option to adjust the temperature and spat drops of water at us all night long.

If you're going to spend 100SGD on a hotel you deserve better than this half-ar$ed attempt. I'd recommend paying another 20SGD on top of that and staying in one of the other hotels nearby, this one doesn't cut it and isn't even trying.

This place is just distinctly average. It lacks charm and style yet is clean enough and relatively comfortable - although for the price I would expect more and the photographs of the place certainly paint it's prettier side which I did not see. Not a bad location near to the main china town drag although taxi drivers struggled to find the place as it is on a little side road... So if heading here from the airport or train either bring a map or find some nearby landmarks to help them unless you want to drive around the neighbourhood (being charged for the extra miles) while they try to figure out where to go!

Booked this hotel for a one night stopover in Singapore on the way to India, just to get some rest before an early flight in the morning.
Given the price, I didn't have the highest expectations, but still - some basic maintenance is definitely needed there if they want to market this as a 'hotel' and expect guests to feel comfortable whilst staying there.
In the room the aircon was leaking onto the floor, and a towel had been placed underneath it on the ground. The shower had no curtain so the water went all over the bathroom, the tv channels wouldn't tune properly so we ended up turning it off rather than watch a fuzzy screen, and the bed sheet didnt fit on the mattress so i was basically laying directly on the plasticy mattress all night. The guys at the front desk were lovely, and helpful. They booked us taxis when we asked, and the free wifi password when asked. I didn't complain or ask to change rooms, because like I said we were there basically to rest and that's it, but overall the hotel needs some attention and general cleaning work done.
