This hotel has been converted from a former Chinese Opera theater so tends to be dark (no windows) & the rooms a tiny but efficient "modules", immaculately clean. Since I was only there at night, to sleep, the small dark room was not a problem.
The location is absolutely perfect, in the center of Chinatown, one entrance opens on "food street", the other on Temple with important sites at each end (Buddah Tooth Temple & the big Hindu temple). The Hop-On/Off (HOHO) buses (4 routes) & the MRT all stop at the end of the block & the subway is only another block away. The Chinatown night market is only steps away. Something is always happening just outside the door, yet the hotel is perfectly quiet inside.
As an older solo, female traveler, I am very concerned about security & it was safe to walk around this area at anytime, even late at night. The staff was friendly & very helpful, with pretty good English skills. The included breakfast buffet was OK tho uninspiring.
Overall I loved staying in such a vibrant area, in a very clean, comfortable hotel.
