The location is perfect for tourist & travellers. Near to tourist attraction place like Orchard Rd. Near to Mrt Station. Advantage for tourists & travellers to commute from one place to another. Public buses also available nearby. Surroundings are full of shops & convenient store e.g foodcourt, small malls, NTUC supermarkets & 7-Eleven.

i love this place and will stay here again when I return to Singapore. The staff are friendly and will help you with anything they can. The room air-con is super nice under Singapore hot weather. It is a 5 minutes walk from Lavender station and there is a big supermarket 50 meters away.
