The hotel is situated in Geylang a residential neighborhood, there are plenty of local shops, cafes, restaurants near by as well as a shopping mall which is great. There's a supermarket in Tanjong Katong Complex which is about 8 minutes walk. The closest MRT station is Paya Lebar (on the green/yellow line) is approx 12 minutes walk. The room might... More

Check in and checkout were fast and efficient. It is close to MRT and bus transport although taxis and Uber are cheap in Singapore if you need to travel away from the... More

After reading dozens of reviews we chose the Champion hotel for price and their good reviews. The hotel is about 12 minutes walk from the rail station, and once aboard only 10-12 minutes to town, great rail system once you get used to it, completely automated and spotless. Any amount of eateries very close, no dining at the hotel, always... More

Beautiful property! I was impressed by the lobby area and the room and bathroom were clean and a decent size. However, I have to give this hotel a 3 because the walls were so thin that you could hear every time someone was in the hall. My husband and I had a difficult time sleeping because of this. It didn't... More

I was quite happy with our stay. The hotel is simple but the rooms are good for the size with desk. Bathroom is clean and serviceable. There are some decent restaurants and a night market in the neighborhood. I would be happy to stay again.

Close to airport. Cheap taxi trip($20 Singapore dollars). Don't worry about saving money by travelling on a bus. Although we caught a bus to the airport...much easier than the other way around...bus stop turn left on leaving hotel...cross one road and keep going through a stall lined street to the next road...the bus stop is across the next (busy) road....

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.
