“More of a hostel than hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The rooms are very small but clean. There is just enough space for two people. The bathroom is tiny with the shower right next to the toilet. So when you shower, the toilet gets wet. There is an aircon, tv and coffee facility in the room. There is no porter service. I did not see a dining hall and breakfast was served in a patio area at the back of the hotel. Breakfast was very very basic, almost out of a can. Breakfast is not served onSundays. The hotel is situated away from everything. It is on the bus route and you can get to shops within 20 minutes. The are no other facilities at the hotel, which means you are stuck in your room. The hotel reception does sell drinks, sandwiches and snacks. All in all I would mot stay here again, as it is too far from everything, the hotel has no facilities and the rooms are very claustrophobic.

This review is actually for our stay in this hotel on June 2010. We chose this hotel because it is cheap and is near Sentosa, The room is tiny and a bit old but the bed is comfortable. The hotel is far from the city and it's hard to get a taxi but it's near Vivo city and Sentosa. The staff was friendly especially the Filipinos, the breakfast was so-so but the chicken nuggets and the sausages were delicious and the one handling the breakfast was an old man wearing rain boots! Overall, our stay in this hotel was just okay but we won't stay here again in the future.

OK, so the hotel was cheap and we only stayed one night but I would not return. The staff was very friendly and helpful but the room leaves a lot to be desired. It's very spartan and even though the price was reasonable we expected a little bit more. Bring your own shampoo and conditioner. The breakfast was not tasty but the french fries were good. They also had franks and beans for breakfast and a strange looking fried egg. Loved Singapore especially the Botanic Gardens

On the plus side the hotel had free wi fi. The AC worked great.

Accidentally happened to stay in this hotel for 1 night. The room is actually a small box where 2 persons cannot walk past one by another. The walls of the room destroyed by wet. Terrible odor in the room. it's a challenge to turn on hot water (please, pay attention, there is a switch outside the bathroom). outside - all under construction, so it's uncomfortable to walk around, better to use taxi or whatever.
Booking.com said about breakfast inoculated, but it is served only monday till Saturday, and since we stay Saturday-sunday, this we will not be able to check. So extra charge for breakfast paid in vain.
Would not advice this place to anyone. Hope, the one we'll move to tomorrow will be better.

I booked the Standard Room for a night. Arrived there past noon and had a quick check in. The outside facade of the hotel is not to be desired but that didn't matter to us as we just had to stay for a night. This place is suitable for a one-nighter night cap with a small group of people where you would be out most of the time. We were a bit disappointed with the lack of amenities in the room let alone the size of it. Again, it's suitable for people who are mostly away from the hotel. The water heater wasn't working well either. There is no maintenance personnel to fix it as the receptionist was the one who came when we called. But, as always, all of the staff were super nice and helpful so that really matters most to me.

Room Tip: Get a better room than the Standard one.

It's near vivocity about 10minutes away by cab. Rooms are clean but extremely small in size. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Should improve in the breakfast provided. Limited choice only bread, and eggs. Should have a few varieties for the price of the room.
