We stayed here for 3 nights and I would have to say that our stay was very pleasant.
For those on a budget, this Inn is really recommendable.
Located in front of Sim Lim Tower and just crossing the main road will get you to Sim Lim Square, a haven for electronics. Crossing this street will also take you to Bugis district where there are lots of shops, malls, food choices (like the familiar McDonald's, KFC, Burger King etc). It takes an average of 10 mins (500 m) from the Inn to the Bugis MRT station but this wasn't an issue for us because there are many things to see on the way. There is also a bus stop near the Inn.
The rooms are located on the 2nd-3rd floors and during our stay the elevator was working (other reviewers note that the lift is not functioning), although it was for the handicapped (meaning it's very slow), so we just opted to take 1 flight of stairs every time which isn't an issue for us as well. We also carried our own luggage since it's mostly elderly staff who are on duty.
The rooms and the bathrooms are big compared to other budget hotels. You don't feel cramped/trapped when your in the room/bathroom, like I said very spacious. Towels, Shampoo, Shower Gel (no soap available), Toothpaste/brush were provided for. Hot and cold shower was working OK and there was also even a bidet which is not usual for SG Hotels. Also 1 bottle of water/person was also provided daily.
A/C was working fine as well. For the TV, there are only 5 channels (1 Chinese, 4 English (AXN, MTV, some news channels)). Free Wi-Fi is available and I was getting speeds up to 11 Mbps.
This Inn is good for people who are just going to store all their luggage, be gone for the whole day and to sleep at night.
Since this Inn is low-storey and near them main road, it tends to get noisy during the day.
After enumerating all this, I would gladly check-in in this hotel/Inn if I come back to Singapore.
Good value for money and location.
