After travelling in Malaysia, the cost of life in Singapore is a little shock. I have chosen this hotel for the rate (a bargain, in comparison with the other options) and also for the great position, just in the heart of Bugis.
The hotel in itself is nothing special, but if you try to spend less than 100 Singapore Dollars for a double room in this city you risk to find something really horrible. So, this has been a good compromise: very easy to reach with the metro from the airport, well connected also with the bus lines, adequately clean and quiet. The strangest thing you can experience comes with the payment: they want to be paid cash, one day at the time, so you confirm the room for the following night just paying your daily quote. And you don't risk to forget that, because at the reception they ask you if you have already paid every time they see you... :-)
Well, there is another good thing to say: the breakfast is always included in the rate, and you can choose between two options: continental and chinese vegetarian.
So, when you come here, put the suitcases in the room and go out as soon as you can: this a very lively area, one the best place to walk and discover the spirit of this city.
