“decently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Stayed on 24th and 25th May 2013 on the 7th floor. Check in and out was a breeze. Room was clean though the housekeeping is nothing to shout about. The tap at the basin is wobbly but the shower is advanced and spend some time figuring out how to use it. No shower curtain which make the bathroom floor wet all the times. Rather noisy between 10pm and midnight as children were running and adults talking loud - some are even drunk - i think it would be all the family rooms are on the 7th floor - otherwise it was a decent good place to stay. The distance to Jonker Walk and other places of interest is far, about 20-25 mins walk, but it is okay for some walking and sight seeing. Yes they need to do something about the vehicle parking as there is lack of such facilities and Singapore cars are too expensive to be parked unguarded. Service is bare but friendly. Breakfast simple but it is a good deal since we paid for S$200 for 2 nights for 5 pax.

Hotel facade is decent and the surroundings are clean. Front desk lady when we checked shouldve been more adept to the local attractions and be able to suggest good eating places.

Room 618 - not sure how often they change the covers and blankets but I had to put a bath towel on top of my pillow coz I cant imagine sleeping overnight with an unnaceptably dirty pillow covers. Quilt covers gave us a shock! Its got yellow stains and hair from the previous guests. The shower was average though water stains are very visible and drainage is poor. No shower curtains. Hopefully its only at this room.

We know we can't complain that much for paying an Sgd70 deal but I guess they shouldn't compromise on cleanliness as it's a must no matter how much guests pay.

Morning came and buffet breakfast was served at the lobby, served local hot meals and drinks.

We booked a standard room for 1 night stay, however the hotel has upgraded us to a family room since the standard room is already full but maintain same price ..we are happy for that! The room is spacious, 2 queen beds with a couch and a leather chair. The interior used in the room is nicely design. The only thing that i dislike is the towel and the tea cup. The towels are old, its like they bought it 2nd from other hotel. and the tea cup is spoilt. Car park is very limited - less than 10 cars can park in front of the hotel. Others things are great. The location is quite distance from town, 3km from city. There is a malay restaurant beside the hotel and chinese restaurants opposite. Overall, we just love the room but location wise, quite far from the city.

Room Tip: family room is spacious.. nicely design.

Been there for a second time, this time I stay here for a friend wedding.

Pros
The room is comfortable
Swift check in
A few channels for you to watch
Amenities is good,for basic usage

Cons
The parking is opposite the hotel but no security guards to guards the space. Live in fear of car being stolen
No appropriate parking space drawn on the ground. All busses n cars parked anywhere they like.
Breakfast is a very simple affair here. U can make them in ur room.
Far from anywhere...u just want to buy some thing you need drive out.

We stayed here in early Sept. for a nite as we couldn't get any place near the center of the city. The hotel is decent but its a good option only if u have a car to drive. Otherwise you have to take a taxi to go back and forth from the tourist destinations. The doors are a bit thin. Easily disturbed when people pass by your room.
Only place near is the Old Portuguese Settlement.

The hotel lobby was beautiful, clean and looks posh. Front office service staff were ok. TV doesn't seems to be working well, giving pretty distorted visual and noisy. Bed is -- like what the rest have said: too soft!! There are cups and instant coffee packets in room but strange, no spoon, and they don't provide spoon! One minus point is that the hotel is too far from city, we had to cab around, which is about RM15-20 per trip. Breakfast is slow and poor variety of food, service staff doesn't look trained, serving with pretty bad attitude when we were there.

I dont mind about the parking issue or far from the town. The most important IS the interior of the hotel was absoloutly gorgeous. The service was nice and the decor ( painting ) was garrish but interesting. The price is very reasonable for a nice and comfortable staying.
My room is totally beautiful,clean & comfort!

Stay with my wife June 2012
