Do not stay in this hotel if: you have large luggage, you intend to work in your hotel room, you have to stay in the room with a friend, or you have to stay in the room with anybody else for that matter. They gave me a free upgrade to a superior room, but it was still so small you could never live in it with another person.
The good stuff: awesome location in the heart of Chinatown and surrounded by restaurants and tourist attractions, half block away from MRT, generally clean enough for what you pay, hotel is new, large TV, fast in-room Internet for free, great food everywhere around it
The bad: small small small, TV had 6 channels, no restaurant or room service, my room had a window that overlooks the street, after around midnight the garbage truck wuld arrive and collect from the restaurants below which meant loud clanging noises and stench of rotting food for about 15mins, at around 5pm the whole hotel starts smelling like food because all the restaurants around it start cooking.
The OK: service
Recommended for solo budget travelers who don't want to live in bunk beds or backpacker style inns, or business travelers who will spend all day in offices and not in the hotel.
