Like most hotels in this price category in Chinatown. Small inside rooms - easy to sit on toilet and clean teeth at same time! great location to MRT and shops. Friendly staff. Close by to many restaurants/quick food venues.

Price high compared with facilities... limited facilities....Very handy location - just across the road from the metro. Staff were friendly and helpful. Ideal only for a night or two stay, as rooms are quite small.

Dear Mohammed Anowar H, thank you for your kind review. Due to our prime location in the heart of Chinatown, space can be at a premium. However, we do have Family Rooms which are more spacious and you can definitely book them on your next visit!

I visited with my husband and my daughter (4 y.o). Do not pay more for kids (under 6 y.o). The place is quite comfortable because it is close to the Chinatown shopping center and MRT station. Room is small but clean. officers are nice and friendly. with the price we pay we get a hotel with a nice location.

This place is very convenient for travelers. The Chinatown MRT station is just infront of the hotel. Hong Lim hawker center is just 2minutes walk and a minute walk to Chinatown Street market. 8minutes Mrt ride to Gardens by the Bay and Marina Sands hotel. Though no mini ref, clothes hangers and cabinet provided but the room is clean.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
