Everything is good except the sound proof. There was a family with 2 young kids stayed opposite of my room and one of the kid cried loudly at midnight. It was very disturbing. Overall, everything is very good, the toilet is clean, good service, 5 mins to bus stop, mamak, food court n kopitiam is just near by and a supermarket is just beside the hotel.

Liked the location of the hotel – not right in city centre but an easy bus ride away costing about 1.5 sgd from bus stop virtually opposite hotel to Suntec City area. Also quite convenient for transfer to and from airport by taxi costing 18sgd which is pretty reasonable. Takes about 15 mins and the reception will get a taxi for you.

Staff were very pleasant and helpful and we decided to book a further night for a few weeks later prior to return to UK and they gave us an upgrade on the room with no extra charge. 96 sgd was ok for a functional room in Singapore. It had aircon, small shower room, drink making facility, fridge and tv which was all we needed apart from a bed!

The room is not so big but ok for one or two nights. Better to be clean than large and grubby The hotel did the job we needed after long journeys to Singapore. The shower was clean and good water pressure, toiletries supplied including toothbrushes and toothpaste which came in handy. There was a slight smell from the drain when water first ran but that soon dissipated. One of the best showers we had in 5 weeks so no complaints here! The aircon was set on a very cool setting and this was a little too cold once acclimatised but was adjustable.

All in all I would stay here again for a night or two and liked the local Chinese restaurant, Ubin Kitchen – recommended. There were other places too in Joo Chiat Road including a bar serving very cold British bottled beers and a draught bitter though this tended to be quite pricey (over £3 for half a pint or around £6 to £9 for a bottle of Spitfire) but a welcome refreshment nevertheless.

Room Tip: some rooms have no windows but our second room did though it was hardly worth paying any extra for...

My visit completely met expectations.

After I checked out and arrived at the airport, I realized that I had left my phone in the taxi. I quickly called the hotel and the staff were MOST helpful in quickly getting in touch with the relevant company (they had called the taxi for me) and within half an hour my phone was back in my hands at the terminal.

The staff were most competent.

Hotel environment was good. The room is clean and up to standard. Its just the distance from train station is 20mins walk to reach hotel which is quite heavy for me to walk with two luggage. Also, the wifi are not detectable once reaching my room.

The room was clean but it is too small, there is not too much space, the bathroom was also very small. It is acceptable for staying for a couple of nights and no children because of the lack of space. But the good thing is it was clean enough.

Room Tip: If you go with children, ask for the largest room. Single and double rooms are very small.

I only stayed here for one night. very small room, poor noise isolation (i can hear clearly others talking outside the door) water spills all over the bathroom after shower. I'd pay more to stay at a better hotel.

The hotel has recently re-opened, the reception area is quirky and has two apple computers you can use. The rooms are well sized with a small fridge, tea making facilities and a t.v with a good range of channels. The location was OK, directly next to a supermarket but on a street full of questionable clubs with lots of girls outside. The nearest MRT station is a half an hour walk away but food is readily available outside. The staff were very friendly and the service was good however we were woken up on a few days by drilling and hammering on the floor above.
