Stayed in this excellent hotel for 3 nights.
Firstly, the reception staff were pleasant. My colleague and I took a midnight flight to Spore so ended up checking in at about 1am...but the staff who greeted us was still friendly. We asked for directions for the next morning and he obliged us by checking up the internet straight away.
Second, I think this hotel is value for money. It's not a very expensive hotel by Spore standard so I was expecting average standards but surprisingly found this place to very good. The hotel is new (so new that our taxi driver wasn't sure where it was), very clean, beds were good, hotel is quiet and the breakfast spread was very good (for hotel this category). In terms of room space, all I can say is that in Spore, I've paid more and stayed in tinier room than this hotel. Plus, they provide free wifi!
Third, I think the location of this place is fairly good. It's well connected by bus and novena station is not too far away.
One thing to improve (from a practical point of view) is that the toilet should have more hooks so that you can hang your towels and clothes. The rail underneath the sink is not a great idea as it's just beside the toilet bowl plus it's too narrow to hang the towel.
Besides this small issue, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Spore!
