The price was decent and the location was great. However the hotel did not provide free WIFI and I had to buy coupons to use the WIFI and they were ungodly expensive. Breakfast was more or less okay but not satisfying due to the shortage of choice (very limited). The man at the counter was friendly though.

We stayed at this hotel the second time, this time in a family room @$160SGD. We found the size of the family room = double room we stayed before. The staff were very friendly and efficient and room clean. However we noticed the aircond had a lot of dust on it. Daughter very sensitive to dust and had to give... More

I chose this place for its central location and convenience which turned out to be really inconvenient and leaves a lot to be desired. I moved in and out 3 times due to day trips out of Singapore. Each time there were challenges with luggages. There was inconsistencies. I was charged on 2 occasion and was not on one occasion.... More

Very nice location but room is old and not well maintained. Carpeted floor is dirty. The receptionist was kind enough to give us an air freshener when we complained that that the room smells like cigarette smoke. The bathroom is okay, but we found a cockroach on the floor. The kettle, cups, saucers and spoons were all dirty. This is... More

This place is very nicely located near to bust stops and Bugis MRT (5 mins walk). Vegetarians restaurant can be found at fortune center just next door. The complementary breakfast was only okay, but the location kind of makes up for it. They would only accept daily cash for room rent to confirm your reservation.

The 1st time we were here was on Apr 2014. We had a pleasant stay, the family room was big, however the room was outdated but that was not a problem for us. And in last Apr, we stayed here too. We had a family room, and got different room. It was smaller but still big enough compare to other... More

The hotel is located within 3 minutes walk from Bugis MRT station, Bugis Junction, Sim Lim Square and only 10 minutes walk to Little India. For food there are several hawker locations with cheap and great Asian food. The rooms are for Singapore standards spacious, clean and comfortable. I stay here at least 3 or 4 times a year both...

If you are looking for a budget place to stay in Singapore this is the place. The hotel is situated in a safe and good area close to MRT and good shopping at Bugis. The room is simple and really clean.

The location is what is good about this hotel. The room is OK but there was a smell in the room from the carpet. There is WiFi internet but it's not free. I cost like it's still the 20th century. SG$6 for one hour. And you have to use the whole hour at once. I Think you can find a... More
