We had a one night stopover and we thought this inexpensive hotel sounded like a good option and close to the Little India area. However, there were too many downsides with this hotel which would make me choose elsewhere next time. Initially when I tried to book the hotel (calling from overseas), I received the following blunt response on the phone "Too busy - call back" - so it was hardly a good start. When we arrived, it looked clean but basic in the foyer. We were in a standard room (SGD 110 per night) and we had booked 2 rooms. Both were on Level 2 and on the Jalan Besar side (the main road it's situated on) - and this was very very noisy! The rooms were tiny - too tiny. There rooms only had the basics - 2 towels and 1 bathmat - all threadbare - in fact the bath mat had 2 big holes in it - and there were no facewashers and no handtowels. The bathroom tried to be groovy as it was a green glass room within the bedroom- but functionally it didn't work - it certainly provided no privacy if you were using the loo, and if in the shower, water went everywhere as it was just too small. There was barely enough room to open 1 suitcase, let alone both of our suitcases. The room is just physically too small to hold 2 people - and barely big enough for 1 person. The wireless didn't work whilst we were there but there was a cable to connect to the internet which did work, thank goodness. The hotel is quite new but I'd hate to go there in a few months time as one can see that the maintenance is very bad - our toilet roll holder was falling off the wall, there were cigarette burns in the carpet and obviously something had been changed in the bathroom area as there was a big unpainted section and remnants of a fixture that had been removed. There was no hairdryer (lucky I had brought one with me). So all in all - I would not stay here again.
