My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a night following a cruise on 10 December 2012. Unlike so many hotels these days there isloads of character about the hotel from the timber frieze to the hand painted ceilings in the foyer and lounge areas we found it a refreshing change from the sterile environments so often found these days. The rooms are a very generous size with all the necessary conveniences and the staff are so helpful we struggled to find any fault.. It's location next to Bugis markets is fabulous for that bit of shopping.while access to the MRT and local buses is only meteres away. Loved the staff - thank you Peter and the folks at the front desk for all your personal service and gracious manners and helpful, cheery assitance. Yes - we recommend to stay here and will return ourselves.
