I booked this hotel rather last minute so we don't have much time or choices. The taxi driver don't know for sure the location of this hotel, so you need to prepare the exact address so they can find it easily. The lobby is small but fast enough to checked us in. The room was quite shocking as it don't...

Excellent base to explore all of Singapore. Its in the red light district, but unless you go looking for it, you wouldn't know. I would suggest this area should...

Dear Chloe, Thank you for your feedback. I had verified that you had booked a Superior Room from my hotel website.

It was a very clean hotel to stay in. Helpful staff. However, I had sleepless nights while I was staying there. I'm very unfortunate to have a group of China people staying all around me for 2 nights and they didn't know how to use a door bell-but banging on the doors to get their friends to open doors for...

The place is OK, like so many Singapore hotels it costs more than it would elsewhere, the walls are paper thin, but it's the same everywhere. No breakfast and few shops on the street open before 0900.

Finding a good mid-range hotel is not easy in an expensive city such as Singapore. This is already my second time visiting this hotel, the last time I was here was May 2014. I found that the hotel was renovated and WIFI access has been made free. Ted also upgraded our room for free which was great. Would definitely come...

We stayed here for 4 days. It is a great value deal for Singapore, as some hostels charge what paid for the room. The hotel is new with modern rooms. However make sure to get the room with windows, otherwise you will feel like in a box. The staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel is close to some supermarkets...

Neighbourhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighbourhood is packed with colourful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
