I was so confused which hotel to go as trip advisors has all kinds of review.i will give thumps up for Strand hotel. Its a good three star experience if you take deluxe room and ask for room which has behind road view.

Its perfect location for MRT, Bus station and food options.Also, there is a Seven eleven opposited of this hotel. That makes it easy for u. Dhobby ghaut is walkable from there

Great value for money. i dont think you have any such option in Singapore....Just go for it

Room Tip: Choose room away from the MRT construction

Simply love the spacious room like old time, able to run around so to speak. Its an old hotel, hence a liftups for the room will be great. Great location for almost everything, like sightseeing, shopping and looking for food. MRT Bras Basah is just 2min away, Dhoby Ghaut is some walking distance, buses are everywhere on Orchard Road..

Room Tip: Its just right place to stay for a family setting. Location is just at where you want to be.. Shopping is just minutes away..

We were a family of 10 when we stayed at this hotel for 5 days - 2 family rooms (2 queen size beds). 1 room had no issues with the beds, bathroom. The other room had an issue with water leaking at the shower area (only during taking a bath) but it was tolerable. Each rooms were equipped with coffee, kettle, 4 free toothbrush+toothpaste, 4 room slippers. We had no problems with the sockets because most of us have been to SG before and we already brought a universal adapter.

Check In: We didnt encounter any problem but it took too long. They had to get all our passport names (so we had to give them our passports), all 10 of us.

Check Out: The trainee made a mistake by overcharging our credit card for S$330!!! Good thing we double-checked all the credit card receipts given and noticed the overcharging. Though it seemed liked an honest mistake, but, it was not acceptable. We had to go back&forth with all the many receipts (because the terminal didnt allow them to charge the overall amount of S$1,920, so they had to divide it....hassle).

Breakfast: Was okay, not the best breakfast, but not bad either. It was enough to fill our stomach before lunch time. However, it was the same breakfast from Monday to Sunday.

Location: Very convenient, 2 MRTs in the area - Bras Basah, Dhoby Ghaut. Fast food place Kopitiam, and 711 were right across the hotel. Thumbs up!

Airport Service: Well, knowing and doing our research about the front area being closed for the MRT construction, we didnt rely on simply asking the staff to hail a cab for us. We were 10 with multiple luggages so it would be a nightmare hailing a cab. We hired a van - very affordable, S$50-60 going to the airport. Great Option!

Rooms: were pretty acceptable. we didnt want to be choosy and nitpick because afterall, it wasnt a 5-star hotel. It has the basic necessities you need.

Housekeeping: No issues, kept the room clean, nothing was missing

Staff: Well, Singaporeans are not the most smiling and kind people in the world and so we had to excuse them for looking stiff and haggard. however, we did encounter few staff who had some smile to their face and were kind. I guess, the kindness campaign of their government is working.

Overall Experience: We had an overall pleasant experience. We weren't in the hotel most of the time - we leave 830-10am, come back 9-11pm. The times that we were there were okay for us.

If you're a group of 8-10 and on a budget, looking for descent place to sleep, this hotel may work you. =)

My friends and I stayed at this hotel and booked the family room for the five of us. It was really spacious and fit all of us just fine.

What I love most about this hotel is the convenience of its location! The Ben Coolen train station is right around the corner. There's a 7-11 right across should you need supplies. And there's a 24-hour Kopitiam food court across in case you get hungry.

When traveling in Singapore, you do a LOT of walking so it's a big plus to be staying at a hotel that's near a train station.

The rates aren't bad at all, and the room is pretty decent for the price. I recommend this hotel :)

The hotel is clean and basic. The room was very large and the beds comfortable enough. The staff are reasonably helpful. The bathroom is also very spacious. Prices are very reasonable for this part of the world.
