“very unfriendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms were very small but clean, there was no glass in bathroom (really strange). The worst thing of this hotel is staff, we never heard any greeting from them during 4 days here. Will consider to come back here if we have no better choice as accommodation in Singapore is very expensive.

Clean and tiny room. I believe they don't have a standard checklist coz thing like blanket, shower gel and shampoo were upon request. Food is far to grip, either travel by bus to Chinatown or vivo city, Taxi was consider to b cheap for four but difficult to stop as there were either hired or occupy and bus was the only alternative to choose next than walking under a hot sun.

This place will never b good for family with kids for me except heading to sentosa island.

Room Tip: For those who travel with kids, look for place where taxi or bus station nearby, food stall was arou...

This hotel might be cheap but you have to sacrifice a lot. The worst part is there is no blanket! Just a thin piece of cloth as a sad excuse for a blanket. The staff mentioned that there is no breakfast provided on Sundays even though the facilities say otherwise. Did I mention that there is nothing within walking distance from this hotel? It's right in the middle of nowhere. I recommend going for a slightly more expensive hotel which offers much more than go for this really low-budget but at the same time really disappointing hotel.

Room Tip: The room is very small and there is no view. The only view you get is of the room across you.

Our son is going to school in Singapore and this was the closest hotel to his apartment. It is also close to several bus routes. It was a convenient base for us to use and you could easily get to Sentosa, Orchard Road, Marina Sands or other locations. The hot breakfast was very basic, but it was convenient. There was free wi-fi, but you had to ask for access codes. We had to ask about the hot water, there is a switch on the wall outside the bathroom that must be turned on. Once we found that out, both the hot water and airconditioning were fine.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the main street. There is heavy traffic all night long and the noise gets...

Nothing special. Very plain hotel. Stayed one night. Small room but not complaining because it was an unexpensive hotel.

Area is not very convenient but it doesn't matter because taxis are cheap in Singapore. Staff was not that friendly but I didn't have anything much to do with them as I was just in transit.

We wanted a basic comfortable and clean hotel close to Sentosa and this filled the bill. It met our expectations and we used it as a base for several days exploring Sentosa and the Bird Park. Service was good and with Singapore taxis so cheap, it was never a problem that it is a bit away from the centre of town. The previous year our hotel was closer to transport and town but it actually took longer by bus. Our room had a reasonable size bathroom and the room though small had enough room for two good size people to get around without falling over each other. Far bigger than some we have stayed in. At less than half the price of other hotels on Sentosa, we would recommend it and would stay again, especially if inbound to go on a cruise ex Singapore.

Room Tip: Rooms at back have not much of a view but may be quieter than the ones on front which may have freew...

The rooms are very small but clean. There is just enough space for two people. The bathroom is tiny with the shower right next to the toilet. So when you shower, the toilet gets wet. There is an aircon, tv and coffee facility in the room. There is no porter service. I did not see a dining hall and breakfast was served in a patio area at the back of the hotel. Breakfast was very very basic, almost out of a can. Breakfast is not served onSundays. The hotel is situated away from everything. It is on the bus route and you can get to shops within 20 minutes. The are no other facilities at the hotel, which means you are stuck in your room. The hotel reception does sell drinks, sandwiches and snacks. All in all I would mot stay here again, as it is too far from everything, the hotel has no facilities and the rooms are very claustrophobic.
