“Worst expereince ever.”
Reviewed June 7, 2010

1. Extremely small room, even without window.
2. No ventialtion in toilet. Smell stayed in the room.
3. Room stinked. Carpet stinked.
4. A big hole in the ceiling. Creepy.
5. Receptionist lied about full occupancy as an excuse not to change our room. I saw people wlaked in and got their rooms.
6. Their one and only one computer was down, The receptionist asked me to fix it for them.
7. If you are travelling in tight budget and this hotel is your only choice, I highly recommend you to cancel your trip. My colleague and I preferred to wander in the hot streets instead of taking rest in our prison-like rooms.
8. Their room rate is not cheap at all compared to many other options in Singapore. The only advantage of this hotel is easy to book.
9. Toilet is so small that you have to shower on your toilet.
10. Internet connection is not free and not cheap.

Great location, but thats about it. Place should have been painted about 5 years ago. Walls stained, carpets ripped. No window in room, breakfast, toaster and a teabag.
Two nights stay was two nights too long.

The location in Chinatown is perfect and it is really close to the MRT so getting around the rest of the city is very easy. The room had no window, but I did not stay for the views anyway. Other than that, the room is clean even though the interior has definately seen better days (the carpet is old and the room smells a bit old). The breakfast is completely ridiculous, only a toaster and white bread and coffee powder. Good thing is that there is a 7/11 close by and there are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. So it is not a luxury hotel but the staff was friendly and I only wanted a bed and a room in a good location in Singapore and this fitted the purpose.
