“A lots of charm and a lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Very pleasant place with a old style charm (1900) but good service, equipment (kettle, TV, DVD player), even jacuzzi in some rooms (809).
Great location, price are correct and very good for the quality ! A bit more expensive in the week end, but still cheaper than the Leofoo...

Room Tip: Avoid 901 where the A/C is noisy, prefer 809 for its jacuzzi :)

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Just came back from a stay at Happiness over the new year break - being new years this was literally the only hotel I could find.

Pros: 1) location first and foremost. Its literally a two minute walk to the MRT. 2) Staff were pleasant and did their best whenever asked for anything. 3) Breakfast thrown in for free (though I have to say brekkies was a bit grim!). 4) its clean

Cons: 1) Its very much past its prime. Were it renovated I think it would be a great place. As things stand however it looks like something from the early 80's style-wise. Unfortunately it also feels like its frozen in time since the 80's condition-wise!

In a nutshell: if this place was cheap I would say go for it (after all, its clean and conveniently located). But it aint cheap (however i was paying new year rates - you might get lucky during other times)

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. Not bad, 3 minutes walk to MRT. Stayed in a twin room with two single beds. Strangely, the 2 beds are positioned next to each other, with only a 10cm gap apart. So you literally sleep next to your partner as you would on a queen-sized bed.

Bathroom is totally see-through. Transparent! But thankfully, there's a shower curtain which you can pull and do your business in private. We were quite a big group and occupied quite a number of rooms. My room had a bathtub and shower area. Another of my mate's room had only a round jacuzzi tub. Another room only had a shower area and another only had a bathtub. Be sure to check and book correctly if the difference bothers you.

Well-equipped hotel with friendly receptionist. 2 7-11 stores at the front (near MRT) and back of the hotel. The hotel is located off the main road, so you need to walk along this dark alley from the MRT station to get there.

Overall, a clean and sophisticated hoel despite its size.
