My wife and I have been to Singapore 5 times, always for 2 days or so stop-over. This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel, we did so because of the location, Bugis which we are familiar with, and the price (NZ$120 per night). If you are going to complain about tiny rooms either 1) toughen up 2) don't go to Singapore at all, or 3) fork out decent money for a 4star hotel.
We stayed at the Village Court Albert SQ (next to this hotel) 5 years ago, but unless you get a super last minute deal I think it is now overpriced...(but in reality all Singapore hotels are)...at least it is more than I am prepared to stay. We stayed at V Hotel Lavender couple of weeks prior (see separate review) and saved $180 by staying here this time.
Close to many shops and market, and food courts of Bugis
1 Block to Bencoolen st for $1.20 bus (#65) to Orchard Rd
4 Blocks to Bugis MRT - if you have light luggage you can walk and catch MRT to airport for $2.40 instead of $25 for taxi
Smallish pool, good enough for an afternoon soak before dinner
Location, easy access to MRT and buses or walk
Staff are helpful and pleasant, we ordered an iron and board and it arrived in about 2 minutes. We left our luggage a few hours after checkout and new it was locked away secure and safe
Standard rooms are small, no cupboard space but are clean and tidy (Deluxe looked ok, on the 4th floor they have sliding door to pool area)
Shower has no door so you basically shower in the bathroom, so we used a pool towel to dry the floor
Didn't use the wifi, the business centre is free for 30 mins but I couldn't open airline pages.
As you can see we are budget travellers, if you are also and don't have huge expectations I think you would be hard pressed to find better value in this in a handy location.
