“Not nice!”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We stayed here for 1 night in May en route to Bali. It's a very long way from the airport but very close to Farrer Park MRT station and very easy to find. The hotel lobby was bright and new and the staff were friendly. Don't be fooled. The room was tatty, the shower was filthy and the air-con didn't work properly. The bed was ok and the sheets were clean but all in all not a nice experience.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days with my wife. Walkable distance of 100 to 150 mt from MRT. Rooms are small but neat and clean. Staff is also co-operative. Mustafa centre is on 300 mt where nearby u can find numerous indian hotels for veg and nog veg (Average cost per person is 8 to 10 dollar per meal). If u just coming for sleeping in the night then this is great value. Free internet is provided buy only in hotel lobby.
Only problem is to reach Mustafa centre which is on 300 mt it takes 12 to 15 min, bcos u have to do lots of crossing as jaywalk is not allowed in Singapore and it is punishable offence.
Nearby area to the hotels are also very good and safe. U can come at any time in night.
I would recommend The Claremont hotel which is opp to Mustafa centre and MRT is on same distance. But it saves ur walking time for Indian food. I did not book that hotel bcos reviews were not good.
U can definately go for Asphodel Inn if ur r budget traveller and u just want to come in to the hotel for sleeping.

Great value for a short stay holiday in expensive singapore..location to ferrer park MRT is fantastic, and some great local restaurants within walking distance..only 2 things..bring your own towels, as the towels provided are horrible, and front desk service could be better.

Singapore is an extremely expensive city. If I had paid $55 a night in somewhere like Thailand and got this quality of hotel I would have been disgusted. However, Singapore like I said is much more expensive. $55 is considered "budget hotel" and therefore you get what you pay for. Bed is pretty much a mattress on the floor, everything in the bathroom gets wet when you use it. There was some mold in the bathroom which was pretty gross.
However, the location is not bad, 2 minute walk to subway where you can hop on and get all around town for a good price.
If you are just looking for a place to sleep at night for a decent price it's not bad, but don't expect much!

Stayed for a week in Feb.

The room was basic, furniture creaky, and bathroom stinky.

One is prepared for stinky bathrooms in budget hotels in Singapore (although I've definitely seen better ones), but what was terrible, was that the only plug point in the room had a loose contact, resulting in audible arcing. Of the 3 lamps in the room, one was not functional. Neither problem was resolved during my stay, despite complaints. The lift was not working one day, resulting in a climb up 4 levels of stairs.

Construction activity in the neighbourhood was forewarned, but the firealarm going off at 0300 hrs, was unexpected. Worse, the same went off twice again on other nights. False alarm, but couple that with the plugpoint

The front desk staff were courteous.

But beyond that, i guess, i should have spent the 20 Dollars extra to go to other hotels in the neighbourhood.

The hotel staff asks for advance for every day of ur stay wifi only available in the lobby and u can't stand there for more than 20 mins coz it's very smelly the smell of ciggrettes there is no bell boy who can carry ur luggage to the room I stayed in 3 rooms in 4 days coz the Aircon doesn't work good in all rooms the best part in this hotel is the bathroom doors doesn't lock in any of the rooms and the cupboards are broken if u keep ur bags in it it will fall apart would recommend this hotel only because of the locality and the price they offer staff is rude apart from the young Chinese guy with a cap
