“Strange smell”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2006

A very very basic, tired, rundown hotel, not very clean - dirty walls in room with coffee stains everywhere, dark dreary furniture and bathroom had no window?!?!

Reception was very unhelpful.

If you've ever stayed in a decent hotel, (4 or 5 star), you will absolutely hate it here....the only reason i stayed was because it was a very last minute internet booking and nothing else seemed available. Did walk out within 10 mins and try and book elsewhere, but no luck.

Ended up stayin gout all hours and only coming in to sleep, it took several washes to get rid of the damp smell from my clothes and even my hand cream bottle stank a week later....

Location is good, but then thats down to singapore and its fantastic MRT system.

The Broadway is a clean cheap hotel, with friendly staff. Rooms are not exactly modern, without bath or shower cubicle, but rather shower in open bathroom area, in the Asian style. It was OK. The bed was comfy, water hot, cable TV etc., as advertised. It is in a great location, right in the heart of Little India, as the blurb says. Indian food everywhere near the hotel, at cheap prices, was excellent. Shopping overload on Serangoon Road, night markets and supermarkets nearby, beer stalls and buses, MRT stations close: one minute by train to Orchard Road. I'd stay there again for sure.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2006

After some of the reviews I had read about some of the cheaper hotels in Singapore, I wasn't expecting too much. Coming to the end of a 5 month trip I was on quite a tight budget and was happy with the Broadway. It's location in Little India probably isn't the best place to be in Singapore, but is a very short walk to Farrer Park MRT station. Only bad thing is the noise at night, I was on the street side which obviously made it worse, so ask for one at the back of the hotel if possible. The traffic noise and shouting etc didn't die down every night until around 4am! Also showerhead in bath was broken and had to be held whilst trying to wash your hair! Room was however clean, well equipped with kettle, TV, aircon etc and was of a decent size. Would recommend to people on a budget who are just in Singapore for a few days and want to use their room as a base. Would stay here again.
