A great choice for a short stay in Singapore. The hotel is small but it is a great central location and just 10 minutes walk to Orchard Road. Our room was quite small but for one night it was fine. Breakfast was OK but nothing exciting! Would certainly stay here again for a one or maybe two night stay. The...

Singapore is an expensive place to visit and you want to position your stay near the attractions so this small hotel is great value. Small (not tiny) comfortable, spotless rooms. Fantastic position, 10 min walk to Orchard Rd and MRT. At $S150 including breakfast a couple its perhaps half what you'll pay in a bigger hotel. As independent, mature, travelers...

The hotel itself was not that great. The reception area is small, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nothing much, it was the same everyday. And the staff at the restaurant were unfriendly. However, it was a safe, we had a late evening flight, so we checked out and left our bags, so we had no...

I had a bizarre booking error on hotels.com where apparently somehow I managed to book this hotel instead of the intended Ibis Bencoolen. I very much regretted the experience: very small, unclean, cramped room, paper thin walls and gormless staff. Suffice to say we checked out the next morning even though I lost the cost of the whole stay.

Probably it's biggest draw is it's well placed, relatively central location. Very convenient links to public transport and/or taxis. Simple rooms, bathroom was a bit dirty and outdated. Room has a 'dusty' feel to it. Next time I would pay more and get a better place. Rate it as average for Singapore (as hotels are generally more expensive for equivalent...

Let me start with the good things. 1) Location is okay and is walking distance from two subway lines. The hotel is also near the art district of Singapore which is awesome. It's quite a happening place as little bars here and there come alive at night. 2) Good elevators and dozens of helpful maps can be found in the...

The bell man smokes at the lobby, hotel staff and breakfast staff are unfriendly and unhelpful. The road construction will be there for another two to three years before they can complete the train route. When it rain, It's difficult if you travel with kids or senior citizens. Taxi drivers drop off pasenggers a few blocks from the hotel. Breakfast...

Checked in 2 Double Rooms from 16 Dec t0 17 Dec 2011. The Hotel is reasonable clean with nice small pool at 2nd floor, but the Hotel Staff's service is worst of it's kind. The Receptionists and the Assistant Operation Manager presented their worst attitude and service anybody could give, totally unexpected. During check-in, the staff is totally not helpful...
