“Okay, but nothing to write home to about.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I stayed here with my partner for three nights in Feb 2013. We had never been to Singapore and chose this place based on reviews on trip advisor. We arrived very early and the staff were kind enough to let us keep our bags for us while we awaited for check-in time.
The rooms were tiny, however this is typical of Singapore and for the price it was reasonable. At least we had a window.
The location was great for China Town, but a bit of a walk to the MRT. After you do the walk back and forth a few times you wished you chose somewhere closer to the MRT, especially when it rains!!!
The only major downfall was that breakfast finished way too early (9am).

So, I'm told that there are no hostels in singapore that offer single rooms. I tried, briefly, to find some only to come up with supporting evidence for what I'd been told.

So, I settled on the Park 22 Hotel (formerly the Mercury Hotel). I reserved the room at $69 per night for 4 nights. This is MUCH more than I'm used to paying for a hotel in SE Asia, but, I consoled myself figuring that it'd probably be much like a hotel room in the U.S.

It wasn't. Don't get me wrong. By SE Asia standards, my room and stay were on par. Even above average. The room, was windowless and tiny (5 feet by 10 feet), but, clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All the things I've come to expect from a good SE Asia hotel room. However, $69 per night seems very high for this place. I don't have enough experience in Singapore to say if this was a rip off or not. This might be a very fair price for this type of room in Singapore. So, I'm not complaining, I'm just stating these things as facts, not necessarily as complaints.

I stayed here on the recommendation of a Chinese friend of mine who had stayed there for several weeks. The rooms are very small but clean. The staff is exceptionally helpful. There is free wi-fi in the rooms and computers are offered in the lobby area. I liked that it was centrally located with simple access to the MRT station. The breakfast across the street was tasty. For the price and a 22-hour stay in Singapore on my way to Papua New Guninea it was more than adequate. I'd gladly do a short stay here again.

The title says it all!! The smallest room I have ever seen, no windows and even thou there are no windows the place is still noisy. Stayed 4 nights and 2 days with no hot water.
No value for money at all. The breakfast ?? Simply uneatable and disgusting served in off-limits hygienic conditions.

This could definitely be your last choice in Singapore.
The location is the only positive point very central and close to most sightseeing places and nightlife.

The location is excellent as it is near to the MRT station, and also a short way to Sentosa Resort World and many other places like Clarke Quey and City hall, etc. Wifi is available in the room, however, it is very small and the hotel seems very old. The breakfast is poor without much choices. The staff is good and helpful but they always forgot to replace new toothpaste and shower gel which I need to ask the front desk every time.

Room Tip: To bring your own toothpaste and shampoo as the quality they provided was poor.

There is absolutely nothing Boutique about this Hotel.
a) It is rather a Budget Category Hotel with no Budget but rather hiped pices.
b) There is absolute nothing Boutique about this Hotel other than the fact that it is an old Building.
c) Never book a single room at this Hotel - unless you want to stay in a crammed storage room with no windows. Please note all Single Rooms at this Hotel does not have Windows.
With the price you spend on upgrading to a room with window, you can stay in any other better Hotel nearby.
d) Check in time is 14:00hrs if you are lucky! I had to wait till 15:30hrs even though I arrived early.
e) Hospitality is an alien word here
f) Even Superior Rooms are mediocre - I got upgraded myself to one at ridiculous price.
g) Cleanliness in general at this Hotel is not what I awaited of a Hotel in Singapore - spotted Bed Linen, dusty, stained and fungus walls etc
h) Small rooms
i) Breakfast included - This Hotel does not have a Restaurant of its own. Breakfast is served at a very small joint (no restaurant of any standards) like the China Town kind across the street, where the local Taxi Drivers have their coffee.
i) It is by no means value for money

The only plus of this place is that it is located in China Town and the Bathrooms are clean.

So the choice is yours.

Room Tip: I would not recomend this Hotel to anyone Never book a Single Room at this Hotel - unless you are O...

Room was very small - the toilet and shower were practically on top of each other which was interesting. However, clean and free wifi, and affordable given the high accommodation costs in Singapore. There was a free breakfast, a traditional Chinese meal of eggs and toast which was not to our western tastes but may appeal to others.
