For the price offered in Singapore bliss was a good choice.
From check in staff was extremely friendly and I really commend them for that after all Singapore turned out to be much less polite and orderly in general compared to what I had expected.
The rooms are clean and modern and you get all the amenities you need such as toiletries, good slippers, safe, good free internet, comfortable bed. No restaurant in house but being in Chinatown you wouldn't want to anyway. 2 bottles of water free everyday.
You can never go wrong with a Chinatown location. Mrt is metres away and you can walk to marina bay no problem.
It is also super close to Maxwell food Centre which is one of the top hawker centres in Singapore. Make sure you try the tian tian chicken rice house (look for the big queue). Don't bother with a china town restaurant.
The downsides (some are more or less important for different people). Rooms are very small, but that comes with the price so keep to expectations. The bathroom is a frosted glass wall and not well concealed so i suggest couples only. Sink is outside the bathroom. The shower water spills to the toilet area. The water heater is linked to the door key and electricity control so when you are out the hot water is off. You need a good 30 minute after coming back to have enough hot water for 2. This is a problem if you want to have a shower after coming straight back late at night. Windows are small if you get one and cannot be opened. Water pressure is very good from the rain shower though.
Whatever you do avoid a first level room. It's very very noisy with front desk and flushing noise. Most also do not have a window. Choose level 2+ and all the problems go away and you can have an enjoyable stay. TV channels are also limited.
Also make sure you have some chilli crab from a top tier chilli crab place (search for top 5 and nowhere else, about 80 each) and go to the zoos!! Forget Santosa unless you really want to do the random adventure activities, it's just like a big expensive amusement park.
