Oxford Hotel stands out from the many buildings that surround Queen Street but don't let the wild colors fool you, its not some artsy fartsy hotel you think it is.
The staff is always inside their main office and most of the time you have to call them a few times before they notice you waiting for them outside the front desk. However, they are all smiles when they accommodate you and they make sure that your concerns are addressed.
The hotel room itself has the basics. Hot Water, Comfortable beds, a desk but thats it. It wasn't comfortable because you can clearly tell that the hotel is a few years old with their dirty looking carpet and their aged mini fridge. We even had to call housekeeping to clean the mini fridge because it was dirty. It didn't even have a mini bar.
Their beds also had detergent stains and at some point I found ants crawling on my covers.
The hotel is located by a church, so when the clock strikes 7 a very loud set of bells wakes us up. It was okay seeing that we had to wake up at that time to get to our tour and whatnot but if you are planning to stay for business I suggest another hotel, far away from church bells. Also their walls are pretty thin so you could hear people loudly talking and slamming doors.
The good thing about this hotel is that it 2 streets away from Bugis Street, a famous shopping center that sells cheap things from clothes and accessories. It is also near a hawker center and a shopping mall as well as two MRT stations perfect for those who wish to tour the city and who seek adventure riding the MRT.
All in all, the hotel is a nice place for those on a budget and who only needs a place to get some shut eye. If your main reason for coming to singapore is to do some shopping and sight seeing and if you intend to be out for the whole day during your visit then this hotel is for you.
