We booked this hotel not knowing that this in the middle of the financial district, nevertheless, we went ahead and stayed here. We expected very little of the hotel because it's a no frills hotel right smack in the middle of banks and banks. BUT, the hotel staff, who knew very little english, the doorman JASON, and everyone, were very very very helpful. The rooms looked like we were in a four star hotel. The look of the room is so much better than the outside appearance of the hotel. The rooms were bright, spacious and the bed was comfortable. We asked for extra pillows, and extra blankets and just about anything extra and they were just so willing to give it to us. The breakfast was "edible" so to speak and can do better BUT the overall experience at this hotel more than made up for the lack of variety at the restaurant.
The MRT is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. If there are 3 or 4 of you, a taxi is so much better. There are 7/11's and Starbucks and a couple of restaurants nearby.
