If you need to have some control of your travel budget and refuse to pay the exorbitant hotel rates in this expensive city and at the same time want to get decent accommodation this place is probably right for you. Excellent value for your travel $$
My queen bed room was sized a little bit on the tight side ( approx. 150 sq.ft 15 sq.m) but was adequately furnished. Most importantly, the bed was very comfortable ; There is some desk space that can hold your laptop, a kettle and a coffee and tea bar and there is a fridge with complimentary water and free wifi internet in the room; excellent. The closet contains slippers, a vault, iron board, hair dryer and laundry bags. The bath room is small but very clean; it has a shower but no bath tub and the usual soap, cream and shampoo items plus tooth brush. The only thing I was missing was a good old clothing line.
The breakfast buffet in the hotel restaurant has a variety of local and international offerings. However, I was missing regular orange juice and plain olive oil and vinegar for salad dressing. There was some interesting and well-tasting mixtures of freshly pressed apple and orange juice and the not too enjoyable ready-made high viscosity salad dressing.
Transportation to and from Changi airport by Taxi to the hotel will cost you approx. 25 Singapore $ (after midnight rate) - not bad. The Novena MRT station and shopping center can be reached in approx 15 min by foot. There is a free shuttle bus service offered by the hotel that operates every 30 min or so. Alternatively, you can take city bus # 21 or # 131 for $ 1.10 per ride.
The Balestier neighborhood is not super fancy but safe and ok; lots of light fixture and home improvement stores mixed with some food courts. If you are interested in the history of Chinese revolution you may want to check out the Sun Yat Sen Villa next door. Free entry for hotel guests and pretty educational, I found.
Anyway, taken together: Days Hotel Singapore is a nice place; clean; friendly staff and
friendly for your budget.
