“Reasonable hotel”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

The hotel is located at the beginning of Orchard road which is the famous shopping street. The hotel breakfast and dinner was fine. Not that expensive but I considered it's ample enough. The facilities of the hotel is not that good. Entrance to the swimming pool locked although it isn't that late. I don't know why. The hotel staff at reception desk didn't want to smile. A question asked, an answer given but nothing else. Don't know why. They were not as friendly as other hotel staff I normally experience in Singapore.

Good breakfast with vegetables and fruits. Good night sleep. Good, central location, close to the MRT, but not easy access from the MRT station.
The water flowing out of the shower cabin in the bathroom during shower.

We had a difficult time finding a room in Singapore that would house a family of four in one room without having to purchase two rooms. Fortunately we found this hotel and they gave us a room four four with a view of the park. It had air conditioning, a shower and room for all of us.
It's a very clean, well run hotel close to the dhouby ghat MRT station.

I spent 8 days in this hotel for a conference. The hotel is ideally located as the underground is nearby and there is a large shopping mall in the vicinity. The facilities of the hotel are basic. Rooms are reasonably large and clean. What I like most is the wood floor without any carpet. The bed is the best I have ever had in hotel rooms for years, it is simply firm but very comfortable. The restaurant serves standard food with quite a few varieties (local, eastern and western cuisine) but the fact that I had stayed there for 8 days made the food less attractive. There is a pretty nice outdoor swimming pool too. One thing I find most inconvenient is the lack of WiFi service at the lobby. The hotel charges for use of WiFi which is fair enough. But it is quite unbelievable that WiFi service is not available free of charge even at the hotel lobby. I paid for the use of WiFi at a pretty high rate ('cos I had to stay there for 8 days) but at any one time, only one device can be connected with WiFi. So guests need to think twice before choosing this hotel.

Ohk on our way to NZ we stopped by for 2 days here. I have to say that our room was quiet big, nice view. Very close to the train station just across from the other side, if you pass through the mall next door. The breakfast was awesome. Dinner on our first night we just walk to the mall next door there's plenty of restaurant at the ground floor .

Very good hotel. The room was comfortable and nice with generous breakfast that suits all tastes. The location is good and the garden close by is charming.
Be aware that if you aren't YMCA member you will have to pay couple of dollars extra.
