I was so anxious of the previous reviews I read prior to our arrival to this hotel and was cautious about it. What would we really expect of a three-star hotel but the bare necessities a traveler necessitates and this place complies with it. Situated on a "not so busy" street is already a plus. You could sleep like a log with the well-maintained air conditioner. It also has adequate water with good heating system, besides almost everyone knows that Singapore filters its own water from the sea and is very costly and the rest are resourced from Malaysia. Oxford Hotel is accessible via train and is near bustling Bugis St. When you stay here, my advise is to bring toothbrush, toothpaste and slippers particularly, the rest are provided by the hotel. This place was fully packed from different nationalities during our stay here and as what I can say is it is a pleasant stay. Though the rooms are small, we were not able to really enjoy the comfort of the place because we were often up and about going places. There were two operational elevators which could accommodate a few persons in each unit, too bad if you have too much luggage with you. At times, instead of waiting for one to bring us up or down via the lift, we just use the stairs. No harm done, we stayed on the third floor. Not much staff was visible, the restaurant and reception staff were the ones who were visible during our 4 day stay fortunately room service was not really needed during our stay because as expected, our room was in order upon our arrival. For the small rooms, the bed we had was very comfy, one would sleep like a log, and there are additional supplies of pillows for each one of us, blankets were "crisp and clean". I rate the food 4 out of 5 because the restaurant provides a variety of dishes for the vegetarians and non vegetarians alike. The gustatory factor for the dishes are two thumbs up because what were served are the ones we need to fuel our physically straining activities during the day. A restaurant staff named Ana was very accommodating to us. Cons for this hotel is that wifi usage is charged, another thing is that although the comfort room is adequately sized, the toilet is not meticulously cleaned from the water marks and other dirt and grime on the tiled walls and the bathroom doors remain from day 1 til our last day of stay, a point of improvement for the place. When we first arrived, the first remark my husband made was that the room might have smelled from the perfume of the previous occupants because of the lingering smell the room has til the second day of our stay, the windows should have at least been opened for a few hours to take the unnecessary scent away. A very good place for budget-conscious people. We will definitely go back to stay during our visits.
