Upon arriving at Singapore airport, stopped five taxis before finding taxi driver who was aware of this hotel. Upon arrival at hotel, was obvious that pictures on hotel's website were either taken about 40 years ago or they had been severely 'doctored' to greatly improve hotel's appearance. Found hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful. Room allocated was more like an old laundry that had been gutted and a bed thrown in. Having said that, it was very quiet. Also, a torch would have been very beneficial as room was poorly lit at night and very dull in daytime.
The 'breakfast' deal which is included in room rate is very deceptive. Provided by adjoining restaurant (and I use that term with substantial hesitation) is very 'light-on'. You have the choice of ONE item off the half dozen cheapest meals on the menu. So you can either have muesli or toast or eggs etc. Anything added is additional cost.
Variety of asian food markets across the road from hotel is well priced, competitive to each other, very friendly atmosphere and open 24/7.
The area is not designed for pedestrian travel in that there is no designated 'footpath', only continuous uneven sections of concrete entrances to shops and workshops. It would be very difficult to negotiate with 'wheeled' baggage. Taxi cost to airport was very reasonable, friendly and courteous driver who willingly gave a well informed commentary tour en route to airport.
So, if you can put up with a small, dimly lit room with poor ventilation and a very inadequate breakfast offering, you might be able to enjoy your stay. Just don't expect too much for your dollar.
