Our stay here was great, from Day 1 till last. Rooms are very clean and staff are very accommodating and friendly. Near from the airport and streets are always available if your looking for different foods. Its quite cheaper compare to other hotels around the area. Will surely stay here again the next time we visit Singapore. :D

They, too, haven't had that spirit there since 1969 but there's a reason I'm staying at this hotel for the second time. No, it's not because Joo Chiat is an offshoot of the Geylang area. The rates are affordable, rooms are squeaky clean, WiFi is pretty reliable and their front desk staff, Hakeem, "happy" Andrew and their pretty, Filipina boss, Floy, always make you feel like you have a home away from home. Location-wise, just ten minutes away from the Dakota MRT Station via Bus #33. Same bus plies through Bugis Junction, the vinyl district of SG- City Hall, Clarke Quay and action-fig dig site, China Town. Joo Chiat Road is lined with a lot of joints for good eats. A stone's throw away from the hotel, Vietnamese resto, Long Phung, is a must-try. A 7-11 and a Fair Price are both just a few minutes away by foot. Will definitely book here again when funds recuperate for another visit. :)

Just to have a taste of some good low budget accommodation , we spent one night at this hotel. I should admit that this was a good experience as it is a very old property and must have been used as a residential house earlier. It is a clean low budget hotel situated in a very good residential cum commercial area . Surrounding is very calm . Rooms are small but clean and well maintained.Bath rooms are cleanly maintained. Service is not prompt . However staff is friendly. Hotel does not have a restaurant . However there are many restaurants in the market outside the hotel

Room Tip: Rooms on the right hand side have windows with good ventilation and natural light.

Have been staying here whenever my husband is in town and it's just a very comfortable hotel with excellent front desk personnels. The hotel was recently refurbished so mega up points added! Very good hotel in distinctive Joo Chiat area. If you want shopping malls there are Parkway Parade Shopping Mall and 112 Katong Mall. Food everywhere around the hotel too! Take a pick - western, malay, indian, vietnamese, thai, you name it. Will also mention the bottle shops around too if you fancy some. The bar girls come out at night and though it can be in a little seedy area, but it's definitely safe.

I stayed here 3 days in my trip in March 2013. We booked family room for 3 people, the room is not big enough but its ok for us. Facilities quite old (air con, tv and refrigerator) but can use. Bathroom is clean. Location is not very good, have to walk 30 mins to MRT, after long day travel around city, we decide to take a taxi from MRT to go back to hotel and it costs 5-7 SGD. Quite far from most of well known places. In general, we have no problem when staying here but will not stay again.
