This was a cheap stopover option on our way to Australia. The location was close by to Clarke Quay, and we found all the nearby bars and places to eat pretty pricey; so it was as cheap to eat and drink in the hotel if you didn't fancy going far. Orchard Road is the cheaper option to eat and drink, so you may wish to stay closer to there if that's a big part of your trip.
We were initially given a twin room upon arrival, that smelt pretty fusty. However, when we asked to be moved this was done immediately and the king sized bed room was fresh, clean and comfortable.
The staff were helpful and friendly, in particular the bar staff and the general view was that the Singapore Slings were much nicer (and more reasonably priced) than at raffles.
They had a free shuttle to Orchard Road in the day, so shopping was easy enough, although it must be said that taxis in Singapore are really cheap and easily available, so getting round isn't a problem.
All in all it's a reasonable hotel, perfectly adequate for a stopover - and yes you do get what you pay for.
