Meriton Hotel
Ranked #49 of 80 Singapore B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Wish we had have read the reviews on here prior to staying here!

Terrible experience...we had to be moved rooms after seeing a rat (!) in our first room. The receptionist was pleasant, but we didn't receive an apology for the disruption.
The bed was comfy...but the bathroom was filthy & the carpets were putrid. Our room was so small we could barely access our cases.

Definitely NOT value for money.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

Singapore is an expenisve city for hotels - trust me take the hit, pay the extra money & stay somewhere nice...!! TRUST ME ON THIS.

The rooms are small, smelly and many are infested with small cockroach type critters on the walls and floors. We arrived late at night (1am) and saw 4 or 5 rooms before we finally settled on one, the one we settled on had windows that you couldn't even shut let alone lock. The shower, sink, toliet combo in the bathroom is an interesting set up.

We had already decided between us that we would stay that night and then lose the money we had already paid for the 2nd & 3rd nights & find alternative accomodation.

Believe me when I say don't waste your money. Pay the extra and stay somewhere nice.

I've stayed in backpacker hostels 100's of times and the 'deluxe' room here made them look like 5 star-hotels. Without exaggeration, you open the door to find filth and bugs. There is a closet which is your bathroom and shower and the bed takes up the entire area of the room. You have to keep your bags/luggage on the bed as there is no other place to put them. Noisy outside as well. To be fair, it is in an interesting area of S'pore...little India. Lot's of cheap food hawkers and interesting people watching. Not close to MRT. Stay away. Many more better looking hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Go to other hotel or sleep on the street

My wife and I were only in Singapore for one night and just thought finding a cheap (but not budget) place to stay would be alright. Oh how we were wrong.

Firstly the taxi driver had never heard of it so we were driving around for about half an hour looking for it. We did have a map but this didn't help. In the end we got out and walked and this was the only way to get there as big construction works are going on and blocked off the road.

The lady at reception was nice, gave us our key and off we went, up 4 stories of stairs to our room.

Opening the door of the room was actually quite funny, it was the tiniest room with a double bed flush with 3 walls and a tiny bathroom about 1meter by 1 meter with the shower toilet and sink all inside. With just enough room for the door to open.

There was no window, the walls were absolutely filthy with black marks and dirt, the sheets were covered in stains, the air con smelled moldy which is carsongenic, the toilet water ran for about 20 minutes after flushing, the room was just down right nasty.

If you are thinking of staying here please think again. If you think it's ok for one night it's not, spend a bit more money and get something half decent.

- - - In hotel pictures room looks a lot bigger and cleanier, room was very tiny and shower/toilet was smallest we've ever seen. Sheets were full of stains and black hair, didn't want to sleep there. Carpet and roof were bit dirty too.

One day we left to the city center to spend some time because they were putting new locks to every hotelroom, we were expecting clean room when we arrived because reception lady said cleaner would go there soon but no.... Floor and bed was full of wood filing and no new sheets on the bed, our wastebasket wasn't empty and it were removed to middle of the showerfloor...We went to reception and said about it to a boy and he gave us new "better" room. Ok new room was a bit bigger and there was window and it didn't smell bad BUT in this room we couldn't close windows well and u can hear traffic and yellings from the street very easily. There were cigarette stains and holes in the carpet, sheets and on the wall. There was also big blood stains in the mattress, so grouse!!!!!!! After a shower all water didn't go to floor drain, u can see same water floating in the showerfloor even after 2days.

+ + + wi-fi, toothbrushes, waterbottles

Wouldn't recommend this no- one.
