“Excellent hotel. Great location.”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

We stayed here for 11 days over Chinese New Year and had an absolutely great time. The hotel opens onto Temple Street which was closed to vehicles, and full of food stalls and hawkers selling everything under the sun.
It was great. The room was clean and tidy. The small fridge and electric kettle were a nice touch.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
A thoroughly enjoyable staff.
Our room was on the second floor at the rear. We used foam ear plugs at night, and weren't bothered by the street noises.
Would we stay here again. You bet.

This hotel is by no means a Boutique Hotel - a statement that is being used rather a lot these days without any foundation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boutique_hotel

The Hotel has just been renovated and stank of paint, when I asked if windows could be opened, as the smell was intoxicating and giving us headaches, I was told no. It turned out nobody had keys for any of the windows in the whole Hotel, not the stair ways nor the bedrooms, which is a big Health & Safety concern.

The rooms are tiny to say the least, and the bathrooms have been 'shoehorned' in.

The decor is simple and pleasent but the beds are short. I'm 5'8" (172cm) and when I was laid on my back with my head on the pillow my heels were hanging over the end...

For a one night stop over it is okay but for a couple of nights at 113 Singapore Dollars per night, when it is advertised as 'Boutique' it is very disappointing and not worth the money.

it's very cozy right in the heart of China Town. It is very near the Marina and it's accessible to the night market. It has a busy street of great foods and cheap shopping. The people at the front desc are very accomodating and friendly.

We stayed here for 6 nights. It is better for a layover but alas the price was right. Singapore is famous for expensive lodging. We wanted a place close to the metro that was within walking distance to good food and stuff to see. Situated a block from the Chinatown metro stop and across the street from the Chinatown hawker center The Inn at Temple Street fufilled both needs for a reasonable price. The room was clean but tiny, essentially a walkway around a bed. It was nicely furnished and quiet despite overlooking the street.
Currently they are undertaking a rennovation. They did not disturb me. Unless you stand in the hallway huffing paint fumes you won't be bothered by it. They were quite courteous in that regard. There is a computer in the lobby with internet access. It is the slowest computer in the country. I recommend just finding an internet lounge.

I just checked in to this hotel. The receptionist told me nothing about their on going renovation work. The floor where I'm staying smells terribly because of the paint, and there is drilling and knocking noise! For goodness sake, this is a hotel. If they cannot even provide a decent place for guests to rest, why not just shut it down until the renovation work is over! This reflects how money-minded this so-called hotel's management is!
