I stayed at the hotel in October 2013 for 5 days with my 2 yr old daughter.
Beautiful property, small but with alot of character and history. The location of the hotel was probably what I was most happy with, close to the Canning Park, about a 15 mins walk to Orchard Street, 15 mins walk to Clarke Quay (if you cut through the park) and 7 mins walk to Dhobi Ghat rail station. So convenient enough. The staff were helpful and courteous and always greeted us with a smile. And I think the bathrooms are amazing with great views and a pretty unique design concept. Oh, lets not forget, they had happy hour every evening between 6pm - 9pm in the hotel bar and lounge. Free alcohol on certain brands. I think that's cool!
A few issues to mention :
- the wifi is horrible. It just would not connect. That's a pity, because it's free and yet one can't seem to connect to it.
- Another small issue was the housekeeping sometimes were not done with cleaning the rooms even till 3:30pm - 4pm. I found that a bit annoying, as when one returns from half a day of sightseeing and wants a nap or relaxation, to come back to a messy room, is a bit frustrating.
- And not very flexible with early check in or late check out. I did finally get my late check out (thanks to Kelson, great guy) but I think if there are families with children, they should be a little more flexible.
Would I recommend the hotel to others? Most definitely.
Would I ever return there myself? Most definitely.
It's cozy, beautifully located right near the beautiful Canning park and overall not too much to fault. I'd rate her an 8 out of 10.
Go on, give it a go :)
