Me and my wife stayed there this November 2012.
The hotel is exactly what we've expected based on the reviews and the Internet photos. It's very nice, simple and clean, it's tight but I guess you cannot expect something else in Chinatown. We had a Deluxe room and it was still tight so I can imagine what the standard rooms could be.
Other than that: very helpful staff, speak good English and do smile (something very important I can say).
Our room had an Air-con, a LCD TV, nice bathroom design and a small security box in the wardrobe. Also if you need they can store your bags down in the lobby.
The breakfast was simple but delicious.
Yes, Chinatown: noisy people down on the street till about 2 am, but when you're tired from the long sightseeing, you don't really pay attention to that:)
The location is great, very close to a MRT station and you could say it's fairly a walking distance from the downtown (Fulerton hotel, Marina Bay).
I would definitely recommend it to fellow travelers, young families (no kids for sure) and people who are in Singapore for the city, not for the hotel:)
