“Simple Hotel”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

good location about 10 min away to the Quey or Orchard rd by Taxi walking distance to the train and lots of local food area. Rooms are very small but comfortable bed does the job (just a place to sleep) Breakfast I did not even try just had breakfast at Orchard. (The good thing about staying in a budget hotel i can splurge on other things like eating good.)

good hotel if you like to see the city and not hang around the hotel. location is nice

Don't expect too much from this hotel. The service are flat, the rooms are not too spacious. It doesn't even have too many facilities. Just a place to sleep and rest during the night when you are busy or full the whole day. For that specific purpose, it serves its value quite well.

This hotel actually in good location, close to Marina Bay, where my conference is.. But, there's a construction in front of the hotel, and its so noisy at night, can't really sleep. Breakfast is terrible, no taste, all plain!! There's a time i invite my friends to my room, because my friends lives in Singapore and not always can meet each other - i assume this man is the night manager on duty - this man is really rude! he didn't let us to come in! He said that another than hotel guest, only can come before 10 pm! Are you hospital or what?!! We don't even noisy or disturbing another guest hotel! I don't really care that time, and still go to my room with my friends.. After that, he keep on calling to my room!!!! I'm getting angry with that, but seems he still not satisfied! After that, he knock to my room MANY TIMES!!! Well, the GM apologize to me in the morning and said that this rude guy just work there only for 1 week! But, still... Where's your customer satisfaction priority! Don't work at hospitality business if you don't know how to satisfied your customer..

i recently stayed with my family at this hotel and the experience was fairly average. the housekeeping staff is excellent and very helpful but the hotel itself is not a great place to stay. the rooms are fairly old and very small in size. the hotel is excellently located near Bras Basah MRT station. With the ongoing work for Bencoolen MRT station, the place is quite noisy. Overall, i suggest you go for this hotel if you are on a shoe string budget.

I stayed here as I was joining a tour. The room itself was clean, and had a safe and complimentary water. This is as much praise as I can give. The building work outside the hotel was loud and I heard banging coming from outside in the night, so had a pretty poor night's sleep. There is no real lobby to speak of, or proper place to have breakfast. They serve the breakfast outside on the street and there is nowhere to sit. Wi-Fi has to be paid for. The noise just made this hotel awful. Thankfully we were only there for one night, if I was travelling alone and staying for longer I would have moved hotels. Maybe once the building work has completed things might be very much improved, but I will give this place a wide berth if in Singapore again.

I stayed here at the end of a G Adventures tour and I thought it was fine. The room was clean, all staff I encountered were friendly and helpful and the location was good. Obviously it's not ideal that there's renovation happening at the front of the hotel but that's not their fault. It met my needs.

Although a useful location, the hotel does not represent good value for money. Small attention to details such as a basic level of cleanliness would have made a big differnce. Also, a smile and a basic welcome, after a long flight wouldve made the trip seem worth while. The male staff were very polite, helpful (if they were allowed to be by the efficous female manager) but the women in general were surley and unhelpful, very defensive. Watch out at breakfast, the women shout at eachother and you! Their normal answer to any question is negative, usually 'no' or 'its very expensive'(relating to cost of making a phone call). The food court nearby was good value and was a relief to find 'friendly' Singaporeans after a long flight.
Advice if you do stay, get out as much as possible! And its easy and cheap to see the sights. Singapore is worth a visit. I only stayed 2 nights before joining a wonderful tour through Malaysia & Thailand with G Adventures. We were a 15min walk from the main bus station to take us there, hence the reason for the tour company choosing the hotel.

Room Tip: I asked for a 'quiet room' - the inference was they didnt exist. Take ear plugs - the air co...
