Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is a terrible hotel. Do not believe the pictures on their website or on the Trip advisor site. When I took the lift to my room and opened the door I was hit by one of the worst smells ever, it appaered to be stale cigarette smoke, even though there are "No Smoking" signs all over the hotel. The walls are dirty and there was a even a dead fly on the wall. There was a hole in the wall, like a plug shaped hole, and I wondered if a mouse might crawl out of it at any point. There was no wimdow either, which was not communicated. I had to leave the air con on at night in order to sleep because of the smell but then it does get cold. The toilet seat was broken and the sink was disgusting.Whilst this place is cheap, they could charge a lot more if they made basic improvements so they clearly cannot be bothered. I could not wait to leave this place. I would not recommend it, no matter how much of a budget you are on.

Stayed here for one night while transiting through Singapore. I normally stay at similar priced hotels in Geylang so expected the same experience at Arianna - basic facilities but clean, quiet and reasonable sized room. Instead I got a poky little room which I could barely fit into. The smell was terrible - a combination of paint and stale smoke. My clothes stank for days afterwards from being in that room for one night. The place was really noisy as well - people were yelling at 2am and coming and going at all hours. I would recommend no one stays here as you can get far better hotels at similar prices all over Singapore.

Room Tip: The tip is do not stay here.

This is really terrible hotel. During the night you hear prostitutes and souteneurs, walls are so thin you can't sleep because clients are coming all the time and souteneurs are making noise even ear plugs does not help. The only way to sleep is if you open the water in the bathroom and door to your bathroom must be open. Room has no window, bathroom is so small even I'm a very slim person, very hard to use. Terrible impression, it is better to stay at the park bench than in this hotel.

Some point of this hotel:
1. Rude young chinese front office boy, the old chinese is welcome.
2. Very SMALL room (very claustrophobic dimension), no window, the bed is very small and very uncomfortable till make my back aches. The room smells bad. The hot water does not work well. The A/C is just a few inces from the bed so i was just under the direct and violent stream of the chilly area.
3. Cannot get wifi connection inside the room.
The hotel location is quite good, but i Do NOT recomend you to stay in this hotel. With the same price, you can get better hotel.

I found this hotel average although it has a good location being opposite the 24-hour Mustafa Centre and a short 5-minute walk to Farrer Park MRT Station. I stayed in a single room and I have to say that the windowless room including the attached bathroom was about the size of my bathroom in my apartment. With the attached bath, one could sit on the toilet bowl, brush your teeth and shower at the same time. However, the water collects on the bathroom floor and would not drain properly. Although space was very limited, the room was clean. There was no smell. The bed was odd though - a 3-foot wide single mattress perched on a 2.5- foot wide base. It was a bit precarious. My room also got a lot of noise from the corridors outside as I was woken up by other guests returning very late (or rather very early in the morning) and making quite a bit of noise. For the room I had, I would say that I could possibly get something similar for a lower price elsewhere.

This is the first time I got to rent a room in a hotel on singapore. Previously, i rent a room on apartement near chinatown, I think its more comfort than this hotel.
Position is strategic because near 24 hours mustafa center, for you who want to shopping with more time. But the wall is thick, no channel tv that you can enjoy, bed is poor, below bed i suggest you don't wanna see that. Hot water sometimes available. No breakfast. The reseptionist just so-so. :)
But, i think its worth with what you pay. if you have more money, i think you must take another hotel.
