We were here for one night as we needed to attend a friend's wedding dinner. We did not put much expectation after knowing about the hourly hotel policy. But, to our surprise, the room and the facilities provided were exceeded our expectation with the price paid. We stayed in a double-bed room, situated on the 4th floor, which is the... More

we stayed there for 4 nights. Its bit far from city centre. Two bus stations away from MRT station. However we liked the place. Clean rooms and friendly staff. We could keep our luggages there after check out for free of charge.

We stayed here for 2 nights in singapore and we liked this hotel. It was clean, the WiFi was good, and the staff were helpful. I would say if you are using the subway system don't get off at kovan, instead get off at serangoon as it's an easier walk to the hotel.

Hotel is located about 10-15 minutes walk from Nex Shopping Mall/Serangoon MRT station. Just the normal budget hotel, with small room. Nothing much to shout about. There's a convenient store (7-Eleven) and mamak food store beside it.

This hotel is clean, with friendly staff, but it is VERY basic, to the point of spartan. The bathroom for instance has no separate shower stall, but rather a shower faucet on the wall and a drain in the floor. The room I had, had a bed, small desk and stool - no chair at all. There are several restaurants... More

I stayed in the standard room for a night. It is the cheapest room and there are no windows in the room. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1. Price is very attractive, only $99. It is cheaper than the Fragrance Hotel next to it. 2. The staff are friendly. They will always smile at you when you enter... More

Hotel is located nearby Serangoon MRT station, which is located just beside Nex Mall. It is just a 10-15 minutes walk to the mall/MRT station. Checking in was easy and WiFi connection is fairly good. Suitable for short stay/business.
