“Tiny Room but great price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

So if you plan to travel to Singapore on a very basic budget and yet do not wish to stay in a hostel, this is a great option. While it is value for money (since Singapore Hotel prices are sky rocketing) the rooms were tiny and awkwardly designed.
The loo was the biggest turn off, since they had a half semi frosted glass door in front of the freaking pot! The wash basin was outside in the room.
The rooms however we neat, and since its a relatively new hotel, it is maintained well. The aircon is very cold and u get the aircon air from outside as well in the room, even if you switch off the one in the room.

The location is the star!! With delicious eateries to suit all budgets, pubs & dessert cafes. Also you can walk down to 112 Katong Mall. You would need to take a cab to get to the nearest MRT however there are enough bus stops to get you around town.

The PROS -
• LOCATION - Joo Chiat, non commercial but awesome!!
• Friendly Staff
• Price
• Well Maintained
• Bus and Taxi available

THE CONs
• Wall are thin, you can hear everything!! and hence others can hear you too.
• The awkward loo design
• Room is very tiny
• no mrt near by

What you see on the website is what you will be experiencing.

The moment you step into the lobby, you will smell the sweet scent. The staffs are very approachable and friendly. They are always willing to lend out their helping hands. I was served by Faizal, a very impressive Front Office Associate. He allocated a quiet room for me because we need to have a good rest the night before our long run at nearby East Coast Park. And each time you pass by the front desk, the staffs will greet you. I am very impressed by their service attitude.

The layout of the lobby is almost as good as a 5 star hotel. We love the modern furnishing... this includes the dark bathroom tiles and new basin in our room. The bed in our room was very comfortable and the room comes with a safe to store your valuables. The bed sheet on our bed was pure white and cleaned... I could see the fold lines. Although given with a small window with natural light, it works just nice.

Just opposite the hotel on the right, serve very nice local Chinese food or to Dunman Food Centre. If you turn left from the hotel lobby, try locating the famous Sin Heng Bak Ku Teh located at 439 Joo Chiat Road next to the Joo Chiat Community Centre. Staying at Venue hotel, you will never go hungry because if you walk down ahead towards East Coast Road, you will find 113 Katong Mall where many global brand of eateries are located at the mall or along the shophouses.

I will be back in another 3 weeks and thank you for the kind hospitality.

Spent 1 night at the Venue Hotel, we were looking for something relatively near the airport, clean and quiet.

+We asked for a quiet top floor room, we got a room on the 4th floor (last) as requested.
+Courteous staff
+Very Clean
+/- Relatively quiet, heard lot's of people talking outside, even at the 4th floor. With earplugs was fine.
-small

Overall: We would definitely recommend the hotel if you don't intend to spend too much time in it, since it's really small.

The ever friendly and charming front office staffs welcomes you everytime you enter the hotel. The rooms are small but comfortable. Approach the staffs for any help/ directions/assistance and you will always be greeted with their warm smile.
Food is not a problem as there is many eateries in the nearby vicinity.
Great place to stay and strongly recommended place for stay.

MRT station is far, but commuting with bus is not a problem. Coffee shop is right opposite, food court is near. Good choice of accommodation for travelers on a budget. I had room without window. Can't hear noise from street but room door is not sound-proof. Complementary drinking water is provided. Towels are clean and changed daily.
Poor leveling of toilet floor causes water to flow to other part of bathroom.

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our way to Malaysia. The staff were helpful and friendly. The decor was modern. The main drawback was a lack of separation from the shower to the rest of the bathroom, meaning the whole floor was wet for several hours afterwards. I found the location interesting and relatively easy to get to from the Airport and to public transport. I would probably pay a little bit more to stay somewhere more central if travelling to Singapore another time.
