My family just spent 4 nights at this hotel. It is well located between 2 MRT stations just a few minutes walk away. We were lucky to be upgraded to a King size room with jacuzzi, it certainly offered great value. Room is spacious, clean and interior modern. The bathroom was fitted with a hot air ventilator which was certainly a big plus on a cold winter day. Having read past reviews on hard matresses, we opted for soft mattresses and had a good night sleep under clean white comfy sheets. Reception staff was helpful and even let us have a carton box and tapes to meet our packing requirements. We booked directly from the hotel website and Bonnie replies in English and was helpful in addressing our queries.
My children occupied a triple basement room with no windows. Room 112 is much bigger than room 111. The hotel only has these 2 rooms on triple basis. They were gracious enough to allow us to swop to the bigger room after 1 night. Although the lack of window was acceptable, noise of water running through pipes in the wall did disturb some sleep. Also the bathroom design with a bath tub (without shower) + adjacent shower area without shower enclosure made it difficult to use the bathroom as it was always wet. Both the last 2 problems were present for both basement rooms.
For the rooms on upper floors, although windows are present most either overlook an air well or narrow back alleys where neighbours can look in. Curtains remain drawn for privacy. The wc/toilet is separated from the shower/jacuzzi/wash basin room but the lack of air vent in the toilet is a very unpractical design.
Breakfast was basic (Taiwan porridge or simple Western style) and not much to look forward to.
Overall, the great rates we procured (early bird discounts), spacious rooms, cleanliness, modern design and great location surpassed the minuses mentioned above.
