“Needs a lot of clean up and repair”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

The staff were friendly and accommodating. Check in and check out process was efficient. The location is good because it's near the eating places and is a 5 minute walk to the Bugis shopping area.

I didn't really appreciate that the hotel required paying for the entire duration of the stay up front, instead of the usual process of asking for a deposit then charging the rest at the end.

The facilities are badly in need of maintenance. Sections of the carpet in the hallways were peeling off. Bathroom smelled like pee the first time I walked in. The smell disappeared when I flushed the toilet and sprayed the sides with alcohol spray. The smell was back when I got home the second night. The sink, bathtub, and bathroom walls were dirty with mood.

Unfortunately, the same amount of money could better be spent elsewhere.

Just like a normal hotel, the hardware in the room looks old so feel not so clean; the bath tub also got stained. The hotel room does not have hair dryer & fridge so not really convenient. However the hotel location very good, near to Bugis junction, Ion, Suntec City and a lot of restaurants, food stalls & pub so no need to worry about the food.

Perfect location nearby centre,MRT,airport and shopping-malls.Rooms are good price for location but not when it comes to hygiene.Lot of dust and room bit dated.Breakfast is included but "restaurant"is too small to handle lot of guests and the choice of food is minimal.Service is ok and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Cheapest rooms dont have windows.

We've stayed at this hotel for two days, it was business trip that's why we needed only bed and pillow.Rooms are small but clean, everything woked well except safety box. Iron, ironing board and hair dryer you have to take from reception but it didn't really bother us. At the same time staff was very friendly, may be we were so lucky :-) Breakfast is very primitive but since I can not eat a lot in the morning I was satisfied with VERY limited choice.

Do not expect a lot from the hotel. It is a place just for sleep!You better be positive and enjoy perfect location that can't keep you inside :-)

I don't know why some people commented about the good service provided here. are there any other park view hotel in singapore?
Anyway, this review is for park view hotel located in bugis.
The only good thing about this hotel is its location. Excellent, close to mrt station, very reachable with mrt from the airport. It's also close to bugis junction.

The room is... just barely enough to be called as hotel room. It's more like boarding house. There are strands of hair in the sink and the bathtub. It depends though, if you're just like me who doesn't care about these things, you might find the room adequate.

The service is... terrible. The hotel staff is cold. You have to pay up front, which means if you want to check out early you might face some problem with the payment. The worst thing is when you put your laundry. it will take 24 hours to complete your laundry, or you have to pay extra 50% for one day service. And the hotel asked you to pay after each laundry order completed AND you have to pick your laundry to the receptionist. This happened to me, and I bluntly refused to pay and go down to take my laundry. I asked them to deliver the laundry into my room, and the receptionist delivered the laundry yo my room. I've never been in a hotel that asking its guests to pick up their own laundry.the staffs nt.

Overall, this hotel is ok if only need a place to sleep on the night, and just need a place to lay down and sleep, and don't really care about the molds and the dirtiness.
But you could get much better hotel with same price.

Was mostly there for work and a bit of shopping. They have rooms without windows. This was a bit strange but helps with sleep since most tec stores don't open till round 11 am.
Very central place. Walking distance to Buggis and city MRTs. Check in time is 14.00 which is not great. Breakfast was included but was tasteless. Overall a good place if you want a place to crash and will not be spending too much time at the hotel. I would prob stay there again if I go on a similar non vacational trip.

Room Tip: Decent place for business trip. Don't expect much to do at the hotel.
