When I first booked this hotel online, I saw that it was Amaris and I thought that this must be the similar chain as the 4 star Amaris Hotel in Bangkok but a lower priced hotel. Then I found out that this was under an Indonesian hotel chain.
Here are my thoughts on the hotel:
1) Superb location.
Even for someone who doesnt like to walk too far, this hotel is very close to Bugis Junction. Behind the hotel, a lane away is Purvis Street where you can find superb food from french fine dining to cafe style Hainanese Chicken rice shop (Chin Chin Restaurant) that has been around for over 15 years.
The girls maning the counter know their job well and we had no problem in checking in / out. It was pretty efficient in a way.
If you have booked to stay in this hotel, you would already expect the room to be small. So then you shouldnt complaint that the rooms are too small etc. Singapore property prices are expensive and you pay what you get. We had no complaint about the room, except for the wash basin which was outside the bathroom, directly facing the entrance door when we opened the door. It was an odd design. What was the architect thinking when he had it designed it this way?
4) Room Service
Staff thus far was friendly. We didnt realise that our electronic "Do Not Disturb" sign button mounted on the wall was on and our room was not cleared when we returned ( there is no paper sign that you hang on door knob so do take note of this). The cleaning service maid had already left for the day and the receptionist to make up for it, provided us with 2 bottles of free mineral water and 2 clean towels. Fair enough!
Seriously, you cant expect a big array of breakfasts for a small hotel as this . We helped ourselves to the bread, jams, butter, corn flakes, and even instant noodle cups. This is the first time we saw instant noodle cups being served but this is good.
6) Room card key
Do not lose it else you will risk paying SGD50 per room card key.
Overall, we had a great experience staying here as we can just walk to the shopping area, and many restaurants were located just behind the hotel, or even across the street, or same row as the hotel, you can find some Karaoke or small Thai Modern cafe ( Cafe Pal) that serves great tea. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip.
