The hotel was easy to find, just down the road from the MRT and the street names are clearly marked. Check in was fast but the bell hop hung around in our room awkwardly, I believe he was waiting to be tipped.
We had Scholar room, 233, not a good place if you require natural light to keep your body clock in check as theres no windows. The room is small, its hard to move around with two suitcases always in the way. Not enough room to stretch out your arms.
The shower flooded the whole bathroom, which stayed wet the whole time.
The sleep quality was good, with a comfortable bed and free fast wifi in the room.
The breakfast is your typical cheap and nasty feed of powerded eggs and spam bacon, the OJ was good though!
Check out was quick and easy.
Overall it was an average stay, saved by the fact of the free wifi. If you dont need much space or daylight (perfect for a single traveller) this place in the heart of China town is good for you ... on the other hand, it isnt very family friendly.
