The stay was generally pleasant and the distance is only a short travel to and from the city using trains and buses. The place is quiet and peaceful. Good restaurants are also very close for gastronomic pleasure. The staffs are also very helpful in our queries. We are sure to come back soon. Thank you for the nice stay.

Very "nice" location where there are indeed "activities" late into the night. A street of Vietnamese restaurants and Vietnamese people. Bars line-up the streets with pretty awesome "sights". Hotel is clean and classy, though room is quite small at 16m2. Basic place to rest for business travellers

I had booked this hotel over the internet, a 12m square room, no window! The room was small, but it had everything you needed, and well equipped, a place to put everything away, very quiet and dark... brilliant. I traveled with only hand luggage so not a big deal to stow my small backpack. Yes the bathroom is small, just... More

Value for money & very hygienic. Room is spacious enough for 2 person. Staff were friendly & even offered us a complementary gift. Very near to airport which makes it very convenient. Overall I had a great experience & fully recommended for 1-2 nights of stay.

The ambiance of the hotel is very pleasant. However room was smaller then I expected, toilet was tiny but place was functional. design was nice. it was a little on the pricey side to me, almost close to being unworthy?? If it wasn't for the fact that geylang was having a bazaar due to ramadhan month, I would have probably... More

The room is small ( barely have the space to walk ), but it's clean and enough for two person. The street that lead to the hotel have a lot of night life activities, which... More

Room was clean and the tub was nice and big, really enjoyed the room! Though the remote isn't the orginal for the tv so it's hard to adjust the settings! Fridge was good space, had a nice shower too! A little tight you're planning 4-5 people staying !

Staying in Joo Chiat

Neighborhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighborhood is packed with colorful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Venue Hotel the Lily is a excellent choice for tourists and travelers who like to stay slightly away from the city centre to savour a taste of the Singaporean lifestyle. The hotel is priced very attractively although it is newly renovated, with most of the little indulgence one may not expect from a hotel in its priced category. All rooms are served with (complimentary) high speed wifi, with in room mini-fridge/safe etc. Just a few doors away, we have bakeries, local delicacies, Vietnamese restaurants, 24hrs convenient stores and supermarkets. The beach (East Coast Park) is just 10 mins by taxi, if the sun and sea could add to the joy of the stay. East Coast Park also offers seafood & other gourmet restaurants and other recreation activities (bicycle, roller blade rentals etc) Thus for a short relaxing holiday or an escape from the cold, Venue Hotel the Lily may just be your perfect hideout. ... more   less
