“Good affordable place in Singapore”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

It is a good place to stay in Singapore. Its affordable and the location is also not bad. The bus stop is just in front of the hotel and MRT station is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel is basic and the rooms are clean. May be a bit noisy sometimes.

Room Tip: Rooms with windows are always better

First time in Singapore and I really fell in love with this country. So clean and people are so organized.

We stayed at Value Hotel Balestier with my girlfriend. We loved the place. Its near in Orchard Road, if i remember it right just an 4-6 stops. Staff are nice and sense of humor.

The only cons is their Bathroom, its too small.

Value Hotel Balestier is a no frills hotel with host of features and I must say we had an awesome stay.

Before booking this hotel I obviously had gone through reviews on Trip Advisor. Most of the reviews on this hotel are positive so I booked the hotel from Cleartrip.

Let's start with the location of the hotel. Hotel is conveniently located at 218, Balestier Road; right in front of Quality Hotel Marlow. It takes about 20 minutes if you take a Taxi from Changi Airport. We arrived at 8:15 AM in Singapore and hotel's check in is 2PM in Singapore. I've been told that hotel will offer complimentary early check in, subject to availability. We did get early check in, around 10 AM. Check in was easy and pleasant.

We had booked two standard rooms and we were given with two rooms on second floor. Now about rooms. Rooms are very clean and tidy but with limited free space. The space in the room is okay to move around but rooms are not leisurely spacious. Toilet is clean and complimentary toiletries and towels are provided daily. The room also contains a dressing table with hair dryer and an electric kettle. Instant tea and coffee powder sachets are provided for a hot cup or tea or coffee in the morning. Apart from tea and coffee, the hotel doesn't provide any catering. Very limited rooms are having windows and our rooms didn't. Rooms do have a big LCD TV but limited number of channels. Beds in the room are comfy and we enjoyed sound sleep each night.

Bus stop which is right in front of the hotel makes it convenient to reach almost anywhere in the city. Little India is just couple of minutes of bus ride. For taking MRT, a bus to Newton or Bugis or Lavender MRT stations can be taken. Thanks to good frequency of buses.

Cheers store is conveniently located downstairs hotel for buying bread, juices, yoghurt and chocolates.7-Eleven is also located in the building which is in front of the hotel. Do buy an ez-link card from 7-Eleven for convenient payment in buses and MRTs. 7-Eleven does sell everything sold by Cheers along with slush (they call it slurrpy).

The hotel offers complementary free WiFi. For the same we have to see the reception and we are given with login and password, WiFi signal is quite strong in all rooms and speed is about 2 MBPS. For higher speed WiFi there is a separate fee. There are only two workstations in the hotel lobby, i wish they had more.

We had total 5 nights stay in the hotel and it was really memorable and comfy. With convenient location, helpful staff and frequent buses / MRTs; we enjoyed scenes in Singapore. I would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone looking forward for a great stay in Singapore.

Room Tip: See if you can get rooms with a window. If you need an early check in be assured that hotel will pro...

We have stayed at this hotel three times in the last year, for two days at a time. It is extremely well located - in a quiet suburban area near Little India, inhabited mainly by locals and one or two young expatriates, next to the Whampoa food markets where you can eat cheaply at night. It is on a major bus route and you are only minutes from Orchard road. It is recently renovated so everything is fairly new. We choose the deluxe room which gives you a large window, a good size room and double bed, and bathroom (though the shower is one of those that runs straight into the floor of the bathroom but it is manageable, and clean, and works well). The staff are unfailingly helpful and there is free wifi on two computers in the lobby.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe (that is not the basic room).

i wanted to give more stars to thia hotel but that would become very much my personal experience

i was checked in by 11 am which no hotel in Singapore usually do as their official time is 2 pm

Room was decently small but served purpose of sleeping. TV of no use as there are not much channals. Small Bathroom sufficient to take bath and no windows in my room. So calculation of timing is critical.

You just need to trust your watch.
Location is good as it has Bus stop just downstairs and you can go anywhere from it. Little India is just 1 dollar ride.

You have seveb eleven and cheers at stone thrown away.

I would book again this hotel .But one thing thats not clear whether theu provide wifi or not. It didnt mattered to me as i had m1 unlimited card.

No frills just sleep. There would be some disturbance around as the walls are same shared so when some closes a door you hear that as well

Front Office staff was very kind to give us (me n my mother) an early check in. Booked the Superior. Quite pricey since it was FHA Week. Room was small, but at least it has a large window, a good bed, and clean. Bus stops right in front of the hotel and across. MRT is quite far. But there are plenty of buses that can easily take you around Singapore, for example : 124 for Orchard, 145 for Bugis n Vivocity. Location was so-so, but there are 1 convenience store next to the hotel n 7-Eleven across.
The only problem was the soundproofing was not very good, there was a big travel group coming in on our second night and we can hear their noisy chatter at night and early in the morning. But all in all, we had a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Always ask for room with window. We looked to the room across from us that has no window and it look...
