I like this hotel. I have stayed here a lot and it's my first choice any time I am in Singapore (which is at least four times a year). But you DO need to know what to expect.
It's definitely basic. Tiny bathrooms, mediocre showers, noise from clubs, mosques and creaky floors. None of this bothers me overmuch.
I like the charm of the place: it's a beautiful building, well-restored, and well-kept. I like the staff (I'm amazed at some reviews claiming the staff were rude or unhelpful - I have always found them to be extremely pleasant and approachable). I like the location (best biryanis only two minutes away).
The breakfast, to be sure, is exceptionally basic, but if that bothers you just go next door to the Indian restaurant and have a couple of egg paratha instead.
As for value-for-money, this hotel can be a little on the expensive side for what you actually get, but there's often good room-rates available so the pain is limited.
I do wish they'd sort out their wifi, though. The signal somehow manages to be poor in *all* parts of the hotel!
