have been at the hotel with my family & this is a average type budget hotel.

the hotel was very clean, the staff was ok, but i felt that they ' work to rule ' sort of people.. why i say was.., i was travelling with kids don't even bother to grant permission to have a late check out or early check even for 1/2 an hour in until the specified time is reached.

I have been few times already in this hotel. In Singapore it is difficult to find a nice hotel if you do not have a big budget. This hotel is located in little India, just five Minutes walk to the mrt little India and five minutes to Arab road and ten minutes from bugis.
Do not expect too much, as most places in this city with medium price. But size of the rooms and amenities are reasonable here. Maybe they are a bit "fast" cleaning the room, but I told them and immediately one kind staff came to do a check of the room. They also offered me to change the room if I wanted.
The front desk is very helpful: they check the addressed where you want to go, they made me favor to collect some personal things at the front desk, they keep your luggage after check in if needed and smile if you do so too.
Thanks to Shidah and Dennis from reception, very kind and helpful.

Room Tip: Do not book standard room, they have not window and are not much aired. Just for few more dollars b...

This is ideally located for Indians as it is in Little India area. There are several good restaurants nearby. Mustafa is at 10 mts waking distance. The hotel is a budget hotel, but better than the most in the range. Book it online; it will be cheaper by 10 SGD. They offer free Wifi. Go for superior room that has a window. The bed is large. On the flip side, however, it does not have a cupboard and the writing table is too small.

Room Tip: Go for a superior room that has a window.

This is the dirtiest hotel I've ever seen. The bed sheets were dirty when we checked in. Reception staff is rude and incompetent, it took 7 hours for a change of sheets, and the "clean ones" also had some stains, so we had to cover the pillows with t-shirts.
We found a roach every night we stayed there.

Room Tip: The superior rooms have windows, but they do not open and the views are terrible.

We stayed here just for 1 night, while waiting for our accomodation to be ready. The room rate is affordable and the room is nice and clean. The only factor that made this hotel less than average for me is the fact that the front office staff was so rude and did not even crack a single smile.

Not sure if it's worth the money they charge- very small cramped rooms, no windows or anything, wifi sucks and doesn't work, constant smell of laundry powder, rooms next door are so close that night sleeping can be problematic if u have enthusiastic neighbours next 'wall'

Room Tip: Never ever take basement
