“Clean, great service and great showers but avoid street facing rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

A wonderfully clean boutique hotel with really friendly and helpful staff. Great location just off the main strip. What could have made this a Great stay was if the windows were somehow sound proofed. We got 2 rooms facing either side of the roads flanking this shophouse and the dizzying sound of thumping Karaoke music emanating from passing trishaws was very difficult to ignore especially if you're trying to sleep. Either get very super or just join the night revelers if you intend to get a full nights rest. The noise dies down sometime after 3am. Stay away from the corner rooms with windows. Take the courtyard facing ones and forget about the premier room which faces a noisy back street (it does come wig a nice rear balcony though).

Room Tip: Avoid street facing rooms. Choose courtyard ones.

Location is very strategic, 2-3 mins walk to Jonker Street and the room was good enough for couples or w a child. Theres 2 reserved parking at the back of the hotel and a public carpark nearby.

The only problem was mosquitos, we were told by the staff that might be a problem at night. They provided repellent and everything was perfect given its location next to the river.

Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed for a night here on cny. The room is very small but neat and clean. The location is superb, only behind Jonker street. Breakfast is simple but adequate. A night there's security at main door where guest are required to tap their room card at the card sensor in order to enter the hotel, which I think it's good.
Shower room is very modern designed with individual heater control in the room. If you have big luggage you might want to take rooms on the ground floor as the staircase is quite steep.
I particularly like the interior where they still keep a well at the centre with an open roof for ventilation purpose.
Overall this small boutique hotel is a nice and convenient place to stay if you want to be near all the attractions area.

First of all the staff were top notch. Helpful, smiling, warm, and accommodating.

Unfortunately, for all of the hard work put in by the front desk daytime staff, the room we were in was ridiculously noisy.

We could hear all of the comings-and-goings in the hallway, right down to hearing the cleaning person's mop sweeping across the floor.

Things only got worse at night as there is an alarm on every door that goes off if the person entering does not put it in the slot that turns on the power almost immediately.

Having already been woken up several times to the alarm, was further woken at 4AM to people coming back from the clubs walking and talking very loudly. This meant another 2.5 hours of sleep until the first people woke up in the morning.

This aspect alone means I cannot ever see myself going back to this hotel nor being able to recommend it, even as a last-chance (wait another time if this is the only hotel available).

It really is too bad as the efforts of the great daytime staff are more than offset by a poorly sound-insulated room.
