The location is very convenient. The breakfast is very basic, rooms are small but clean although not very comfortable. The staff at the reception are helpful. Basically good for a short stay at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Good location for a short stay.

This was a transit hotel I booked which was I quite enjoyed. Location was great and staff was nice. Room was not that big but I guess I only need the room to sleep. I was not in the room much all through out my stay as I went out shopping.

All ok I guess at the end of the night as I hit the sack as soon as I got into my room that night to get ready for an early start. For the price they charged me and the location, I am not complaining but you could do better if Singapore is your main travel destination.

Stayed 5 nights for 2 rooms, total of 10. Both rooms had NO windows. Shower control is defective. No toiletries. Blanket smaller than the bed. Left a jacket and emailed them requesting to be sent to a friend in another hotel but they refused. They say they're only a 3-star hotel and only have skeleton staff. They should be rated ZERO star.

The lobby of the hotel was small and could hardly accommodate our group of 18 persons. Fortunately, we were the only group arriving that night. However, the staff was friendly and helpful so we were ushered into our rooms in no time which gave us the chance to explore the city that night.
The room was very small and no windows, but clean. We requested for a double bed but we got two single beds instead. We did not ask for a change because it would be an overnight stay for us this being a side trip coming from Kuala Lumpur. We had free wifi access which was exceptionally fast and strong. The room also had the normal complimentary bottled water and coffee. The safe and hair dryer were added amenities. The temperature was comfortable which provided restful sleep in spite of the cramped space. The bathroom offered liquid soap instead the usual soap bar and I do not like using liquid soap. It also had the usual set of towels and toilet paper but no exhaust. The shower was pleasant but the curtain was too close to the shower and sticks to your body when taking a bath which was pretty annoying.
The hotel is a stone's throw away from Bugis, the night market and Orchard Road.
Breakfast was good, but food choices was limited.
I didn't expect this kind of a hotel from Singapore, a popular tourist destination. But the staff, the city itself and the attractions, on the other hand, all made up for these shortcomings.
You will appreciate the hotel better if you use it only to sleep at night. Stay in other hotels if you plan to visit Singapore longer.

First, the location is good. It is near Bugis where you can buy good souvenirs for a low price. We bought items from Roberts, one of the stalls that sells those merlion, magnets, keychains and pens and all souvenir items.
Secondly, the breakfast is good. It satisfied my palate.
Thirdly, I like the free wifi connection inside the room. It is fast and efficient.
Fourth, the staff are very friendly.
There is a good money changer inside the hotel that gives a good exchange rate. Good for shopping!

First impressions were not good very dated and cramped reception, the first room we were shown to was tiny and had clear signs of damp on the wall all around the electricity socket and hair dryer. No fuss when we asked for a transfer and the room was more spacious and had more hanging space, however all the furnishings were very tired and the whole place urgently needs a major upgrade. The hotel is ideally situated for all the shops and Bugis market, plenty of restaurants, and good transport links. Hotel staff always very helpful and always smiling.
