There seemed to be less staff than previous...

Singapore is a very expensive city. We were happy to get a really good deal on a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment style room for just around $200 a night. The rooms were slightly rundown but we were not bothered by that at all. The staff was friendly. The Bencoolen/ Bras Basah area was really nice. Just a 3 minute...

Locations here was fantastic. There is works currently, one night involved jackhammering till late, not to bad from the 11th floor but would have been awful on the lower levels. Staff were very helpful and obliging. The beds are so unpleasant though, simply too hard even after requesting a mattress topper. Breakfast was incredibly limited I didn't bother most days....
