My husband & I was here with a group of friends for a wedding. So we decided to book 5 rooms for 3days 2nights. All rooms were located on the ground floor because we requested to be together. 3 rooms look exactly the same, small size room, but the other 2 was huge! Imagine how surprise we were because all 5 rooms are the same price. The 2 big rooms can fit at least 3 bag luggage, no problem. Whereas the other 3 small rooms, we can't even put a decent luggage without walking into it. All rooms at ground floor have no window except the toilet window (which is lock). So If you are claustrophobic, sleep upstairs. Toilet is spacious and very clean (so is the rooms) but ventilation need to be improve because there were some fruit fly flying inside the toilet due to dampness. Amenities such as coffee & tea, water, towel, toiletries, safe deposit box, room slippers, hairdryer, hangers and TV is provided. Bed is comfortable and a/c was working perfectly. They also provide facilities for the elderly and handicap. Breakfast was delicious but my husband complain that the coffee was tasteless. It was just black, no coffee aroma. I was not aware about the coffee because I don't drink coffee. :P Other than that, we think the selection was awesome. Oh and Suprette, the hotel restaurant, starts their Happy Hour at 8am. :)
MRT station is 10 minutes walk away. Either you take the train from Lavender Station or Farrer Park Station but Lavender is closer and you can use the short cut through City Sq. Mall. Not to worry about safety at night. Singapore is a very safe place and if you are hungry in the middle of the night, there's a food court & 7-11 that opens 24 hour located opposite the hotel.
Singapore is known for expensive rental with small space. This place is small yet cozy at the same time. It's not like the standard hotel with swimming pool but it does pay lots of attention to detail. Nice interior and decoration. A good concept that gives you the feel of the old colonial time. There are a variety of customers staying in this hotel, from family to couple, business trips to backpackers. Although I'm not too satisfied with the rooms arrangement, I really like the hotel. Service is efficient and well mannered staff. I would come back again.
Opt for rooms upstairs if you are claustrophobic.
