A quite, clean centrally located hotel, with very close walking access to Rocher MRT. The staff were welcoming the facilities were good as my wife and I spent only a night here, we were very happy with the hotel. Look forward to stay again here when we return to Singapore.

This is a very nice hotel near Rochor MRT. The shower has hot and cold. Bed is very comfortable. Clean and small comfort room. A good choice when in Singapore, this is a not so expensive choice. There are restaurants near by as well where you can eat.

Upon entering our room, the first thing you want to do is take a bath because the room gives you a yucky sticky feeling. You do not really wanna sleep because you might find roaches crawling all over you. Thank God did not happen. Wanted to check out immediately to find better accommodation...however, it was already very late. So had...

The hotel is good overall. Nothing wrong about the hotel, only problem is that hotel is so cheap, so don't expect good crowd in the hotel. Thats the only drawback, the staff is really courteous and helpful. The rooms are small, but If you are travelling to singapore to tour, you will hardly be in hotel, so thats not a...

This hotel is awful we stayed 3 nights there. The smell when we reached the room was unspeakable, but no surprise because there is no windows in the room which was also incredible small. The toilet was also too small and there was no seperate space too take your shower. I barely could take a simple sleep in that hole....

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
