Now, this is a tough review to write and the reason for it is that I am not sure that goes into what category? I got this hotel because the other one,where I really wanted to go was completely occupied so I had to book this one. There are couple of points on both the good and the bad sides. I shall mention both and you can see what works out for you. Okay let's start from the good things first
The hotel is a budget hotel so if you are not willing to spend a lot and looking for a budget alternative, this can be an option but do remember that there are many more options as well and just one street away from it, you have got three more hotels to choose from. Anyways, the hotel is having a food square right opposite to it and a 7/11 as well. Also, it's about 10 minutes walk from the hotel to the little India area where there is a lot of variety of food available so in that aspect, the hotel is good. Also, there is hot water and free access to wifi. Free wi-fi is hard to get in budget hotels so if you are like me who comes on business trips and needs internet after the office for more than 2 hours, it's a big plus to have it without paying anything extra.
Now, that's the end of the good points. Let's see now the bad points!
The hotel doesn't seem like a hotel but like someone picked up an old house , renovated the rooms to be converted into a hotel room and opened it up. I came to know that it got renovation and got reopened and if this is the situation after it has got a reopening, I don't want to imagine how it was before! There is no window in the room and the only set of windows that you are going to find is in the washroom. So the room feels like a mini cage. The furniture in the room looks like picked up from doll house and of very bright colors which are not at all pleasant to the eyes. There is a tv in the room but only 5 channels are there and I guess most are in Chinese only though as you get the free access of internet , that shouldn't be a big problem. I found the staff a little rude as well. I reached at the hotel early and requested that if there is any room which gets free, let me have the early check-in. In front of me , two rooms got the checkout and still ,the staff at front reception didn't allow me to have an early check-in and mentioned that I have to pay 50SGD if I want to do it! Since I was sitting right there when the checkouts happened and then too, the staff didn't buzz at all and struck on getting the money-not something that I would really appreciate.
Overall, as I said , it's tough to say that whether it's a good choice or not. May be if you are coming only to stay outside for most of the time and would use the hotel only for sleep, it can be considered but with no windows in the room,no curtains to escape from the sunshine that's going to hit right in the face at the morning time, not so comfortable rooms, I still wouldn't recommend picking it as the first choice.
