Hospitality and services are all about smile and efficiency. Here at Rainbow Paradise, during my stay, I saw neither. Maybe it was just my particular bad luck on that day. First of all, the check in process took quite some time, there were 2 receptionists at that time, one was busy checking in another guest of the hotel while another... More

This hotel is situated about 20 minutes from the main shopping district, but the in house taxi service ( a small business near reception) makes it easy to organise and pay for a taxi before heading out, and not too pricey! The carpets on the way to the rooms are stained badly, and the smell of cigarette smoke can be... More

Didn't plan to stay in this hotel but since our intended hotel nearby was fully booked, we were booked into this one as it was nearby to an event where my daughter had to attend in Straits Quay on that weekend. Our room was on the 11th floor with a nice view of the sea. That's all ! One can... More

The hotel is a budget hotel - the rooms and beds are worn out, no luxury inside. All functional but does not look as if manager and staff cared too much. Rooms are large. Breakfast was normal - buffet style with rice, potatoes and beans - some fruit (water melon), and variety of bread. Coffee just soso, if you need... More
