“If you're poor- than yes!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Negatives:
-Too tiny
-pic quality on TV was broken, and the staff spoke zero English to help
-NO soap is even given? When I called the front desk they said they don't provide this?!
-Zero counter space for your suitcase or things. No closet. Just a small exposed rack for a few items
-At night so loud and bright lights penetrate into your room.
-Poor circulation with the way the room is designed.
-Shower over your toilet?

Bottom line- If you are one person and there for one day, than yes it is doable. Any more people or days, forget about it. And this is coming from an excessive traveler who spends no time in their hotel but to sleep and shower. And even that in itself was awful.

The hotel is located very close to Little India, a nice and vibrant district of Singapore. The room was small but clean and with everything in it you need (bed, tea cooker, TV,...). The bathroom was simple but big and with a very good shower. Nice staff, computer with internet to use for free in the lobby and on the other side of the road a food court. Also nice bar directly next to the lobby. The only downside was a missing window in the room, the only one was in the bathroom.
Good value for money!

We stayed here for 5 nights for ~$100 aud/night. It was basically what I expected. We paid the extra for a larger room which was worth it. Room have tv, coffee and tea facilities, comfy bed and an attached basic bathroom with hot showers. Noise of traffic could be an issue for some so I do recommend ear plugs. The breakfast was al la carte and delicious! Unfortunately it is out of the way and a bit if an effort to go places. It is ~ 10min to closest MRT. Overall it was a nice hotel and the only reason I wouldn't stay again was due to the location however I knew this before I got there so no surprises.

Well located over the road from a food court, and close to 2 bus stops that can take you anywhere in Singapore.
Quirky decor and small rooms, but clean and heaps of hot water.
Defintely would stay there again

Room Tip: See if you can get one at the back away from the street

We stayed here for 3 days and did not have any problems. The hotel itself is nice and funky but the rooms are TINY. I booked knowing this after reading trip advisor reviews but being that we are not fussy about those kinds of details we booked anyway. It was seriously small. It has just enough room for a queen size bed and a desk w the fridge under the desk. There was barely enough room for 1 suitcase and a duffle bag. If these were on the ground, there was no space to walk. We often hit our belongings left on the ground when we opened the front door.
It was a good value despite this. Singapore is expensive so its a good place to rest your head at night. It is near the MRT but it's a little bit of a walk...about 10-15 minutes.
Another plus is there is a 24 hour Hawker center directly across the street. If you go...go to the center stand and get the pancake with ice cream topped with corn... Sounds odd but it was delicious!

Positive
Very cute and quirky hotel. Very clean. Great wifi. Helpful staff. Not bad location if u dont mind a stroll. Great aircon

Negative
Very small rooms...not big enough for 2 adults. Bathroom all frosted glass with the only windows being in the bathroom which are french shutters so very noise. No curtains so take a eye mask and ear plugs. But damp smelling but once the aircon is on goes away. For the size i would say not good value for. money
