I stayed in POW, Boat Quay, from 21-24 June 2012.
The staff on duty - Don and Kent - were most helpful.
The strategic location is just great. So is the view from my dormitory window.
Boat Quay is in the Heritage District of Singapore.
Talk to people around you and make friends. That is travel.
From Changi Airport, just take the Green Line MRT to Raffles Place MRT Station.
Aim for UOB Plaza and walk for 10 minutes to POW, Boat Quay.
Enjoy your stay in POW Boat Quay. Value for money.
