Love the experience of staying here, clean room and comfortable bed. the hotel is near a few bus stations and approximately 1 km away from Mustafa and Ferrer Park MRT. there's a 7 eleven opposite the hotel, a non-halal food court too. there's also a bar inside the hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Very clean and loved the rainfall shower and the windows in the bathroom. We had a nice view of a little park where people did yoga and tai chi or something like that in the mornings.

The rooms are small, but for the price, it was still nice. As a gal who likes to do her hair and makeup, I was annoyed that there was no mirror by the outlet at the desk, so I couldn't see to do my hair. Not the biggest deal, but still annoying. There's a mirror in the bathroom, but the shower, toilet and sink are all open, so I'm sure an outlet in a wet room is a hazard. And they should add hooks for towels and a suitcase stand. These aren't expensive features, but I know I would've appreciated them.

The hotel is across the street from a 24 hour food court. We had lunch one afternoon and a drink and snack another evening. Nice variety, seemed like a bunch of locals. There is also a 7-11 across the street, so you can pick up drinks, snacks and use their ATM.

The hotel is off the beaten tourist path, but I liked that. If you take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the bus system, there are a few stops within a 5 minute walk. And the bus is super cheap! I would recommend taking the bus to the bay area, but make sure you stop part way at Arab Street and Haji Lane. Beautiful shops and scenes!

We got the breakfast option, and we loved our breakfast both mornings. Our two favorites were the corn fritters and the muesli.

Singapore hotels are very expensive, and the action is all around the marina bay, so basically the key is to get a hotel on a good MRT (subway) location that can easily take you to the marina bay without paying the extortionate hotel prices! At £60/night, the hotel isn't cheap, and the rooms are on the smaller (but not small) side, though typically well equipped for a 3 star hotel. Staff were helpful and friendly, and the hotel has lift, and it is only a few minutes by taxi to the nearest MRT station (costing around S$5, £2.50). The hotel has rustic, vintage feel, though it can come across a little as just lazy interior decorating, but it is nice. Rooms clean and good wifi throughout. So basically a good value hotel, a bit out of town but in a nice area and ideal for sightseeing the city at a reasonable price.

Definitely aiming at shabby chic, and not missing entirely, this hotel is worth investigating for those on a budget.

The rooms are small, no doubt about it, but the space within them is impressively used and they don't feel overly claustrophobic. There are several nice touches squeezed into the space which make the rooms feel well equipped.

The area is what makes the place in my opinion. If you are after five star expat luxury you're in the wrong place. But if you like friendly locals and a bit of integration in your travels, then you've hit gold.

There are several "hawker" centres nearby with lovely staff mixing with exuberant locals, offering culinary delights for those with a sense of adventure. Well situated for larger shopping centres and transport links to most areas of the city seem to be excellent.

The hotel itself offer a good breakfast and lunch menu in it's small but well formed bar / dining area. This is air conditions and offers very fast good wifi. When we were there it seemed to be something of a favourite for local business people and students to catch up for a coffee.

All in all I would certainly recommend the place.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the atrium seemed to be spacier from what I saw.

I was suspicious of this hotel from the start... though the hotel has a nice lobby and the restaurant, the rooms are shockingly small.. if you are not sleeping, it is impossible to live in the room... the room service is non-existent... the hotel is located far (minimum 15 mins walk) from the metro station which is added disincentive.. there is a 24 hour food court opposite to the hotel... there are numerous shady massage parlours and chinese pubs around the hotel - so I would not recommend it for families... little india is very close however....
on the positive front, the hotel offers 3$ discounts on the numerous singapore attractions... still I can't get out of the fact that rooms were so small....

Room Tip: Don't select rooms which are on the road.... make sure AC is cooling properly when you select th...

I have lived and work in Singapore for many years so I know the locality of the hotel well.
My partner and I arrived in Singapore in the early hours on Feb 27. Since our check in time was 2:00pm we decided to take our breakfast at Changi International Airport.
Took the SKY TRAIN to Terminal 3 for a leisurely breakfast at the FOOD COURT.
We then took the MRT to the city. Just hop on the only train at the platform in the airport. After a short ride the train will end at Tanah Merah Station, the doors will open on both sides. Exit from the left to the platform to take the EAST - WEST LINE to the city. Get off at LAVENDER (EW11) the hotel is a good 15 min walk from the station. A taxi ride from the airport will cost about $20.
The lady at the reception was very helpful. She told us that we could only check in at 2:00pm but offered to keep our luggage while we explore the city. She said that we can call her around 12:00 in case a room is ready.
As we knew the city well we took a bus No 65 at the bus stop opposite the hotel to The famous Orchard Road shopping Strip. We finally returned to the hotel at 1:00pm and our room was ready.
The room was a shoe box sized but very clean and neat. The Free WiFi was excellent through out our stay. The bathroom was large and the the hot water shower was consistent and powerful. Toiletries were supplied and replenished daily. There were no windows in the room but there were windows which could be opened in the bathroom,
Loved the locality. There is a 24 hour food hall opposite the hotel. Some of Singapore's famous food stalls are located in that food hall. Do try the Prawn Noodle Stall and the Famous Beef
Noodle stalls. Just look for the long queue in front of the stalls.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms towards the back as the hotel faces the main road. There is only one small lift so av...
