Could be a really great hotel - good downtown location, large rooms, nice bathrooms, views over the straits to Singapore from one side. But let down by many little things:
* only 2 or 3 working lifts out of 4 to serve 16 large floors, meaning waiting times of up to 7 minutes (yes, I timed it)
* hot water is rarely hot, often only tepid
* ancient and very loud fridges in the rooms
* no 'green' policy for re-use of towels or sheets
* refurbished bathrooms covered in tile grout and rooms left dusty from all the work, and never cleaned
* still work going on, so hammering sounds most days
I stayed here for 2 weeks three years ago and again for 2 weeks just now - the only real change is that the carpets are now all new and clean. The location is the saving grace - easy to walk out of the hotel and find many great places to eat of all types and prices.
