So I and my friend shifted 3 rooms in this hotel. Every time the bathroom kept geting smaller. I am not exaggerating at all, the bathroom in the last room was literally 1.5ft/ 2.5ft big. It was like you could sit on the commode and take a shower. Completely not worth the $80 we spent for the room. However, there were no issues with the cleanliness and the location of the hotel.

Room Tip: walk around and find another hotel.

I booked a single room as me and my wife were travelling to India in December and thought of having a stayover and fun time in Singapore. I made a booking through booking.com. Firstly they are horrendously overpriced and secondly it was not even a 2 star property. There was bad odor in the lift, the rooms are very very very small and those beds should not even be in a hotel in a developed country such as Singapore. We had to change rooms in half an hour because of poor wifi signal in the corner room and the second room did not have hot water. The pictures shown on the booking.com are just a myth and the fact is way different from it. The best part of our stay was the gentleman who checked us in, the rest was just a disappointment. We did enjoy travelling in and around Singapore.

I booked a single room for 2 nights,29th and 30th November 2012, through Agoda.com. The picture shown on the web site for the hotel was complete misrepresentation. The room I had one bed with two walls touching the bed and little opening at one end to crawl into the bed. the whole room was a junk. and on top of it has a pipe on ceiling of the bath room from which water was dripping constantly. The hotel was full so no alternate room could be offered. Spent the first night in the lobby chair (which was better than the room). The next day a bigger room was provided but it smelled horrible so I refused to sleep there.(spent night at the airport) Refund was refused by the hotel or Agoda.

It was really friendly check-in when i enter the hotel,
i stayed there for a 5 nights, its very closed to a Mustafa centre, the grand shopping centre in that area.... and front of the hotel...
the next convenience thing is city square mall and farrer park MRT, easy access to the whole island..

I've been staying in this hotel a few times already, thus entitle me to make a concrete comment and recommendation to anyone who want to stay here.
Yes, like the title was saying, the hotel is very decent in every possible way u can imagine. Theres nothing fancy or even particularly excellent things that happening in this hotel. All u pay is a place to rest and maybe, just maybe get a little rest from your tiring day shopping or going around Singapore.
The rooms are quite small and its worst if you get the room with no window at all. The toilet are quite OK but not perfect. The bed sheet are clean and no smells. The aircond are large type of aircond above your ceiling, thus making the room very cold at night but that one can be adjusted easily. The TV got 2 channel only. And the fridge and closet are useful eventhough its cramped. One thing I just cant forget staying in this hotel is that 1) The wall are very veryyy wafer thin! everything you do and whisper can be heard all through the corridor..soo be careful to all the loving couple and (b) The bed are not knee length high. Its thigh length high which quite difficult to hop in to and also no good when ur sleeping with ur mate.
The staff are robots but sometimes helpful if u smiles a lot. The Wi-Fi are a jokes cause most of the times you cant get the signal to your room and last but not least, the check in times are mostly very late.
There you go people. Up to you to stay here or not. The only reason I stayed here a few times is bcos it is in front of the MUstafa Center. When I come to Singapore, i'll go to Mustafa Center 3 times a day, sometimes just to marvel to its sheer vastness, and of cos, a walking distance to City Plaza and Ferrer Park MRT. But if I got a little extra money or if I were born rich, than I definitely skip this hotel and stay at the Parkroyal Hotel next door instead.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the Mustafa Center. All the rooms facing the back of the hotel will all smell t...

Dirty, super smelly and small rooms without windows, aircon not working, old and rusty furniture, non-cooperative staff, a complete scam. Just stay off this rat hole. You better sleep in an ATM or under a bridge.

Room Tip: Just don´t go there.
