Not knowing where to stay, a local friend recommended us to find something in Bugis area.
We found the 5footway inn and booked online, knowing that there wouldn't be any windows or TV in the room.
This is fine and the high speed internet in the room and the 2 Mac computers in the common area were adding plus points.
The breakfast was very basic - toast, butter, jam - so we decided just for the coffee (very nice blend, free all day long) and take the breakfast outside.
The room was clean we assume, the floor is pure concrete. This gave kind of a prison feeling. You can also hear the rain very good through the drainage (at least we think what's what we heard).
The area is good, it's around the arab bit and there were many restaurants offering cheap and good food. There are a lot of street lights, so you're not walking in dark alleys.
The metro station was a bit further that we thought, but it's a good 10mins walk and easy to find.
Make sure you have enough SGD with you, since they don't accept any card payment (as already stated in the booking).
As for the title:
For our second stay, we booked into another hotel, 4*, with double the room size and window, separate shower and toilet and paid 20 SGD mroe per night. But it's without free internet and breakfast... Still gave us the feeling of having the better deal in the other hotel
