Before we booked this room, my cousin and I checked various forums, blogs and reviews about Amrise Hotel. Sleeping in a small room is not a problem for us. We just needed a place to sleep in anyway.
I have only good comments for Amrise. :)
Location - it is located in a safe place in Geylang area. They say it's a red light district but it's actually more of just a busy place. There is a convenient store beside the hotel, and several fruit stands across the road. There are small food stores around the area. At night, you would find tables along the street with people hanging out or drinking beer, but it's definitely safe. We would walk along Sims Avenue, towards the hotel at around 11PM, and there wasn't any danger or problem at all. From Kallang MRT station, you can take the Bus 2, 63, 67, 80 or 100 then alight on the second bus stop, which is the Yi Xiu Building. Amrise Hotel is just across the bus stop. However, when going to MRT from the hotel, there is no bus available, so you just have to walk maybe 15-20minutes. Bring an umbrella because it can get really hot. For families travelling with a baby, bring a stroller. Kallang station is a few stations away from Changi Airport. It's in the same mrt line (green line).
Room - as mentioned in other reviews, the room is small/cramped. There are no cabinets where you can hang your clothes. But the basic necessities are addressed. There's a TV, telephone, kettle, hot/cold water in the shower, towels. Coffee and 2 bottles of water are replenished daily. If you want them to clean your room, you have to make a request at the reception for make-up room. The room is clean. Bedsheets and pillow cases are clean, toilet is clean too. Just bring toiletries (toothbrush, soap, etc.) coz they dont provide any.
Service - We booked a standard room via booking.com. Checking-in was a breeze. We arrived at the hotel almost 11am, and we were allowed to check in early :) im not sure if it was because we have a 2-year old baby or the room was just available for us. :) all the receptionists are kind, especially Ms. Alice. They accept credit card and cash payments. On checking in, you will be asked to pay the full amount of your stay in the hotel.
Over-all, I really like my experience at Amrise. :) i will definitely book here again!
