Overall, we were satisfied with SEA Hotel. It is a no fuss hotel. I think the cheapest for family rooms in Singapore, where everything else is expensive. We had to make bank transfer for DAY 1 of our reservation as they don't deal with credit cards and when we checked in, we paid for the rest of the stay in cash.
Ours is a family room for 4 adults, at the second floor, for SGD 160 per night. We had good night sleep, surrounding is quiet, room is enough for my husband, me and our teens,16 and 13yo. We were provided with a double bed and 2 single beds for my teens. Bathroom has hot/cold shower with toiletries (soap and conditioning shampoo) but toilet is not separated from shower so floor is all wet. They provided a doormat for you to dry your feet.
Service is good for what we paid for. Breakfast of 2 toasted bread with butter and jam or vegetarian buffet, whichever you prefer. They cleaned our room each day, providing fresh towels, coffee and tea for 4. Quiet aircon with ceiling fan, but we did not need the fan as aircon was enough. We asked for adaptor for our gadgets and they provided, but made us understand that if we did not return, they would charge us SGD10. There is a small TV with only 1 English channel, but we did not pay much attention as we only stayed there to shower in the morning and sleep at night, in between, we were busy with sightseeing and rides elsewhere.
For the transportation, plan the places you want to visit and get map from gothere.sg. Bus stations, 5min walk. MRT about 10min walk go to the basement of CapitaMall @ Bugis JUnction (we couldn't find it at first but there are lots of people whom you can ask for directions). Using taxi from the back of hotel at Ibis Hotel taxi stand is 5min walk. But going back to the hotel using taxi is a little stressful as not all drivers know the place, we paid for unwanted turns as they are not familiar with the hotel. Just tell the driver to bring you to Chinese temple at Waterloo St. which is beside SEA hotel or bring you at Ibis Bencoolen taxi stand. There is a FREE shuttle to Sentosa for tourists which parks at the lobby of Summer view hotel (back of SEA hotel, 5 min walk) from 9am onwards at 30 min interval. Dont forget to bring your passport+embarkation card.
Word of advise, if you want better services than what were mentioned above, book at a more expensive hotel.
Next time we go back to SG, will book there again.
