The location of this hotel is the best aspect. Right in the heart of Chinatown - near vendors, the train station and hawker center. While many comments say the rooms are small - they are in line with lodging in Singapore. The rooms are clean and have a flat-screen television and free wifi. The design of the bathroom is somewhat odd and with the shower area near the toilet. With no wall to capture the water, the shower is easily soaked! It took me a couple of times to figure out how to keep from soaking the entire bathroom but it can be done with a little finesse.
Breakfast is included in the price and is nothing overly special. The breakfast area doubles as the bar at night and is rather small. Have breakfast early to avoid the sqeeze of the crowd otherwise it can be a little hectic.
I thought the hotel was very quaint and comfortable. There was definitely value for the money as hotels in Singapore can be rather expensive. Being in an area that is busy (more vendors set up tables behind the hotel at night to create a great food market feel), so close to the train and with lots of temples/mosques within walking distance, we felt like this place was almost perfect for a short stay.
