We stayed at this hotel about 15 years ago. At that time it was small and charming. Stayed recently in July 2014 and it seems like the rooms have not been upgraded or updated for the past 15 years. It feels like a very old and tired hotel. The biggest complaint is the air conditioning which took about one hour to cool down a very small room. Service depends on who is at the front desk. On the day that we checked in, service was poor but on the next day, with a different person behind the desk, it was much better. Breakfast was unimpressive. Stayed for 2 days and both days we were served a "western breakfast" of scrambled eggs, toast, hashbrowns, fish sticks on day one and scrambled eggs, toast, hashbrowns and potato wedges with cheese whizz. What happened to the nonya breakfast?
If you are looking for a cheap hotel then this is it but do not expect much beyond the fact that the rooms were clean. Skip the breakfast and go to one of the nearby cafés. Do not choose a room without a window. We asked to look at one since it was in the "new" wing and we thought that the air conditioner might work better. The room that was shown to us was very musty smelling and the air conditioner worked just as badly.
