I chose this hotel as an alternative to Ambassador Hotel at the Singapore Airport. We heard that due to the constraction site, the other
hotel can be noisy, so wanted a hotel not far from the airport, just to sleep through the night. The location was not bad, walking distance
to the metro and bus stop, so this was convienient, however the hotel
was dirty and the furniture so used and old, that I was surprised they
were not embarassed to be still using it. There were tea and coffee facilities in the room, but they were so old and worn off, we wouldn't touch it.
The aircontitioning was only in the room, but not in the corridor???
The bathroom floor was dirty behind the door, which tells me, the room
has not been cleaned properly. The hotel was next to the petrol station opened 24 hours, which played the music, the whole night.
Also not sure why there was a step in the room. You had to be aware
of it all the time while walking to the bathroom.
In the summary, we survieved that one night, but I would never go back
there, rather pay more, and go to a better hotel.

Room Tip: If you stay there, ask for a room away from the petrol station.

Have stayed at this hotel twice upon my travel to Singapore. Considering its Singapore the price is the lowest once you start looking for decent hotels to stay in. However the rooms are quite nice and spacious for its price. Location is also good considering you can walk out of the hotel and find a 24 hours store next door and couple of decent hawker stalls to eat a decent meal at cheap price at a 50 meters walkable distance. Overall worth staying if you consider on spending more of your time out of the hotel and exploring Singapore.

Booked this hotel following review from another site whereby someone had stayed for 17 nights. They must have been mad !!! We arrived late at this Hotel with a terrible review from the taxi driver. Had it not been so late at night I would not have stayed. Dirty everywhere - lift, carpets, room. Furniture old and full of cigarette burns as was the carpet. Torn curtains and no pillowcases. I spent the night half asleep continually scratching. Lighting quite dim which was a bonus so we could not see how disgusting the whole room was until the following morning. Bathroom dirty - splash marks over mirror, hairs in sink. Could not bring myself to use shower. DO NOT GO THERE

One thing people have to keep in mind with this hotel is that it's definitely a budget hotel, and as with all aspects of life, you get what you pay for.

Pro's:
* Very cheap.
* Location was fine but not perfect.
* Surprisingly big rooms, considering it's a budget hotel.
* The beds were adequate and we both slept fine without any problems.
* The sheets were changed daily and we never had any problems with dirty sheets.
* Two free bottles of water daily, along with free tea/coffee.
* Rooms were nicely air conditioned.
* TV worked fine.
* Bar fridge of an adequate size, certainly compared to the shoebox size that some more upmarket hotels have these days. They were also adequately clean.
* Supplied us with a hair dryer and extra pillow when asked.

Con's:
* The corridors aren't air conditioned, which I guess isn't that surprising.
* The carpets are quite heavily stained; even with some stains on walls and ceiling.
* Bathroom wasn't very clean, although the toilets were clean enough.
* The shower heads are water savers and let out a woefully inadequate amount of water.
* The sheet that you lie on isn't big enough to tuck into the bottom of the bed, which you'll notice if you're 6 foot/180 cm tall like me. Oddly, though, it never disturbed my sleep. But if you're sensitive to that, and you're tall, then it could be a real problem.
* The bar fridges are quite old and take a good day and a half to cool down to a reasonable temperature from being first turned on.
* Some of the wall sockets and fittings really do need replacing, and could even be dangerous.

Overall, this is very much a budget hotel - cheaper than the majority of other budget hotels in the area - and that shows. It's also passed it's prime. But other than the lousy shower, we never had any real problems with the hotel and was always able to get to sleep without any trouble. So would I recommend this hotel? If they didn't have luxury, or mid-range, hotels in mind and was willing to settle for something that wasn't pristine but good enough to get you to sleep, then yes, I would. But if you really do like all the comforts and luxuries of home then... to be honest, why are you looking at a budget hotel?

P.S. During the two weeks, we stayed in 2 different rooms, because at one point we checked out to visit Malaysia for a couple of days.

I don't recommend this hotel. The Staff were unhelpful, the room was dirty, we have a 1 yr old but he still decided to move us to a different room since he said that we are not allowed to the room that we booked because there are four of us which includes our 1 yr old and 12 yr old. he said that it isn't safe to allow us to the room so he moved us to a room where there's steps and is very unsafe for the baby. The bathroom was filty, they won't give extra towels and even the water pot was dirty. we immediately called the airlines to book an earlier flight this hotel ruined our stay in Singapore, I don't recommend anyone to stay here.
