Booked Mayo Inn because it filled our budget.
Do not expect more, if you want cheap room, just book those dormitory style backpackers' hostel with shared bathroom. Pay more for Mayo Inn, and get more privacy and own bathroom.
Have to book prior if you want a family plus room (1 double , 2singles, very comfy for family of 4).
No breakfast, but lots of food around.
Location : for me, it's just ok, lots of eatery around, Indians (behind the Inn, they are scattered everywhere), my favorite is Albert Centre/Complex, just walk around 3-5mins, supermarket is just 2 mins walk. Cheers is just across the Inn. Walk another 2mins , you can find 7-11 for light snacks behind the Inn.
Bugis Junction's MRT can be reach for 10 mins walk, but I love the surrounding of the route to get there, food (lots of food!), small stores, temples, short cut from Bugis + to MRT (if want to avoid heat)
Bus stop just a minute away. Also Little India's MRT can be reach for 10 mins walk.
Sim Lim Square and Sim Lim tower are basicly couple minutes walk.
Minus point : MRT constructions near the Inn, but didn't bother us at all, except they made the Inn can't operate their elevator (probably that's why they gave us $10 discount for all rooms).
Staffs : great staff, Miss Ana, Miss Yani, thanks for all the help you gave us :). Very helpfull and nice personallity. Very fast to reply our emails.
Rooms : we booked Deluxe and Standard room. If you a light sleeper, better ask in prior to have room NOT facing streets and max locate on level 2, quite tiring if you come back from circling the city and take stairs to our rooms on level 3.
All basic needs are provided : 2bottles of mineral water everyday, packs Teas & coffee, kettle, shampoo, soap, clean towels (altough on the first day, 1 towel has its threat thininng).
Beds & pillows: ok, blanket : not big enough for 2 adult.
Bathroom : ok, very clean. Most important.
Enough space to store luggages.
AC is super cold. Free wi-fi !
Minus point : IMHO, Floor is better off just ceramic floor, carpet looks like cheap carpet and makes the room gloomy.
Yes, they do have windows, but we can't see through them, they just coloured glass, and for safety reasons they can't be opened.
No need for late check out if you have late/afternoon flight, just ask the staff to keep your luggages.
If you only need clean room, and just for sleeping and shower, Mayo Inn is good enough.
I'll be back, especially if the MRT construction finish, might be more handy to catch train.
