Just needed a room for a short layover and given the proximity to Changi Airport and the City, I decided to give this Budget Hotel a shot! We traversed through this lane called a Lorong and was told by the cab driver that this was a redlight area; I guess that explains the cheap price. I was, however, greeted by a pleasantly clean-looking building in a soft, peach hue. What I absolutley loved about this hotel was its window in the guestroom. Somehow I just feel more comfortable with bathrooms with windows that open to the outside. Everything in the room was clean and can't fault it really for it was a budget hotel, and a clean one at that.
Tip to traveller: when staying here, be sure to venture to the right hand side of the hotel instead if you're looking for sane exploration in contrast to the redlight (but very tame and safe) district to the left. The stretch to the right hand side is called Guillemard Road. Take the overhead bridge to the opposite side and a bus ride on service 70 takes you directly to Suntec City and/or Orchard Road swiftly.
Also, worth mentioning is the Dim Sum teahouse the left from Guillemard Road. Delicious, inexpensive Dim Sum. Must tries include Malay Cake (Ma Lai Gou), Paper-wrapped Chicken (Ji Bao Gai), and the juicy Siew Mays!
