“Nice Hotel with Great service”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

Stayed at Mayo on Jun 20 - 27, 2011 with my family (3 adults, 2 child). We took the family room (#305) with additional extra bed so we have 1 double and 2 single beds. The room still have adequate spaces for us to put things and move around. The room is nice with twi bigs windows (cannot open though), a television set, a big desk, two small desk beside the bed, one big wardrobe and a refrigerator also with a nice bathroom. The room is clean and eventhough it's right beside the busy street we all can sleep nicely at night. An incident happened in my family at my hometown (Jakarta) that make us to shortened the vacation and comeback to Jakarta on Jun 24th. We already paid the rate for the whole duration, so we just check out and inform the receptionist the reason why we do early check out - the following day we receive email from Mayo (Evelyn) mentioned that they will give us full refund for the remaining days. We really appreciate this; it's above our expectation. So thanks to Evelyn and Ana, who help us a lot in the reservation. Mayo Inn surely our #1 choice when we back to Singapore.

We stayed here in June for 4 nights the room was spacious, clean, they will come and change sheets everyday and replenish tea coffee and 2 bottle of complimentary water. The bathroom was big and they will supply everything you need shower gel, shampoo shower cap including toothbrush and paste kit, no soap. Again they will change your towels each day.
We had a deluxe room and had access from our room to a backyard which we really liked but if don't want any lizards to come inside keep the door closed. For the rate we paid the service and the cleanliness exceed expectation.
Cons. There was a construction site one street from the hotel just opposite Hotel 81 and the noise was horrific they are working 24/7 so do not expect any relief from it. We arrived after an 11 hours flight and we weren't able to get any sleep in the first night. We asked to change the room but the hotel was full so we had to endure honking and shouting and steel being dragged around each night and we bought ear plugs which allowed us to have a bit of sleep.
I did asked for a quiet room when I booked and they gave us one away from the main road but I never anticipated the construction site will be near by.
I would say it is value for money in a very expensive Singapore and I would recommend the deluxe room as is big and has a bathroom to suit.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper check with the hotel for any constructions around and make sure you have...

Based on TA's review, I booked the family room at this hotel. Definitely recommended! I had the advantage to pay as I arrived (meaning no down payment) and an early check-in (9 a.m.). Room was cool, clean and neat; and could accommodate 4 people nicely (2 adults + 2 pre-teens) . The bathroom was spotless with perfect rain shower; and also completed with basic amenities. There was mini-fridge and electric jug; and they gave us extra coffee & tea sachets for free in addition to the ones in the room.
Although we couldn't open the windows or see outside view, sunlight could still enter the room once you pull the curtains, of course.. well, the sights were probably a bit dull though, so no problem with the windows thingy.
No breakfast policy, but there was this delicious Indian restaurant nearby that was so rich in taste unlike other restaurants we had in Singapore. And there was a small store right across from the hotel in case you had this urge to munch on something :)
Unfortunately, there was no phone in the room; so we had to go downstairs (well, it was only one floor below) to ask for the password for the wifi and a teaspoon/small plate for the fruit we bought at a local supermarket (mind you: no durians policy).

Even on a very short stay (one night while in transit in Singapore), I was impressed by the service, staff's friendliness, and cleanliness of the room. My husband stayed there longer and also liked it. Prior to arrival, our trip plan kept changing but they very kindly accommodated our requests. Singapore is an expensive city, but Mayo Inn gives value for money (judging from the prices of similar hotels). Easy to get around and if you like gadgets: Sim Lim Square is just across the street. No breakfast at the hotel, but food is one thing Singapore's not lacking, at any time of the day (and night). Also, free WiFi, although not the fastest connection. Will stay there again.

The day I arrived at Mayo Inn, i was a bit worried to see the busy noisy road and the road construction nearby. Would it be okay for us n especially for our 8mo baby asleep at night. Turned out we passed out and slept through the night. We even missed to hear the door bell rings for so many times.

We stayed at the family room for 2 nights, overall the room is clean, the bathroom is great, the service is nice, even the elevator is 'cute'.

Recommended if you're looking for a budget hotel at the Bugis area and convenient for family. It's 10min walk to Bugis MRT, Bugis junction, Mustafa, Bras Basah or
Little India.

It's recommended

in a otherwise expensive singapore this place turned to be a gem . recently renovated , the hotel was small but had a cozy feel to it. the rooms were clean , bathroom was good, and above all, they were of a decent size.decor was minimalistic but tastefully done. front desk staff was very helpful and always had a smile on their face. would give full marks to them. there were 3 ladies at the front desk at different times of the day and all of them were wonderful.these were the only staff i saw during my 4 day stay. this hotel has a very unique lift.theres also a small convinience store right opposite where you can stock up on your daily requirements. 2 bottles of water and coffee /tea was replenished every day. the room has a flat screen with a couple of english channels and a mini fridge.bath gels , toothbrush and shampoo were provided.all in all this was the best budget hotel i have stayed in, throughtout my journey thru sotheast asia this time round.bugis mrt was a 10min walk while little india mrt was a 15 min walk. lot of dining options down the road. this hotel was opp the sim lim tower and next to hotel 81 rochor

Can easily rely upon this Hotel if you are looking out for a comfortable stay within reasonable price in Singapore. Its a proper hotel (not a backpackers inn) with all the modern amenities. The staffs are helpful & the hotel is an absolute value for money. Only drawback is the distance from Little India MRT which is abt15 mins walk...We booked the hotel through a travel agent(3rd Planet Tours) in Kolkata.
