Very good value for the price , relative to the average cost of accomodation in Singapore . It's out of the main tourist hubs and close to transport if you need to get into a tourist hub . Everything needed to live is close by and all at a good price .

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.

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.
