“Better and quiter hotels nearby”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2011

I could not stay at my preferred hotel, so stayed here planning to stay for a week or two. I usually only book one night if I don't know the hotel, and this strategy paid dividends. After looking at the digusting standard room for $60, I chose to stay in the deluxe room for $70. The room was much better and quite big with desks and chairs and a nice TV. However, I soon found out that the old window could not be closed which was a real problem because the room overlooked a busy and noisy 24hr restaurant on a main road. I managed to get about 2 hours sleep and left in the morning. Other problems were that the room smelt strongly of smoke and there was no complimentary water as there is with most hotels in Geylang. Also, no interenet and the"mini bar" was a dirty empty fridge. There are better hotels in Geylang for the same price.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2010

I am a business traveller who looks for value, as the business i work in is my own. In Singapore the best value Hotels are those a stones throw from MRT stations that can get you into the CBD within minutes. One are I often stay in is Paya Lebar. This suburb is on the right end of the redlight fringe that stretches through Geylang.

This visit I could not get into the Gateway Hotel so looked for, and found, an acceptable alternative in The four Chain. I took a Suite room at Sing$80 which proved to be huge. I thinkthe Suite was a wise choice as it had three large windows and was spacious.

The pluses about this Hotel:
- less than 5 minutes walk to Paya Lebar MRT Station (with the Circle line opening in a week, will be even closer with a new MRT Station entrance)
- Big room
- Good facilites in room including Hari dryer, 50 inch flatscreen TV, DVD player, Cable News and Sports
- Fairly friendly Staff

Minuses:
- Can be loud, it is just on Geylang Road, traffic is heavy all night!
- No WIFI access (although it can be accessed from the cafes nearby)
- Hourly rates for smaller rooms- although Hotel is clean you cant blame them for offering this option to pay the bills. A Suite Room keeps you well away from the Hanky Pany on other floors!!!

Call me spoilt but the image conjured up in my mind by the description 'boutique hotel' does not encompass cigarette burns in the bedroom carpet or a look of complete scorn on the receptionist's face when I enquire about laundry facilities. What do you think this is: a hotel? Take the iron and dodgy ironing board and think yourself lucky.
