This is a hotel that you "get what you pay for". It is well priced, good central location (between the airport and the orchard road). The rooms were clean, comfortable, and basic amenities were fantastic. We chose this hotel as a transit point for a stop-over and we were not disappointed. Close to all basic requirements; bars, restaurants and shopping...

We did a lot of research before our trip to Singapore and this hotel seemed value for money. It was very well kept and clean but we were disappointed with the superior double room which is very small compared to the pictures on the site. The bathroom is so small that the shower is right next to the wash basin!...

Hotel is 3 years old and an improved version of its sister, Venue Hotel nearby. Design in comparison is much superior in terms of space planning, interior design, size of bathroom, more storage in room and most importantly, much cleaner overall inside the guest room. Location may not be for everyone but it represents good value for short stay. Highly...

Small room sized , uncontrollable air con temperature, poor quality complimentary coffee and tea and one night cost about sgd $113 i feel that the pricing is a little too expensive for what they provided. compared to other hotels , i could have gotten a much bigger and better quality room with a top up of 50 bucks ..

The hotel is quite a distance to any MRT station,it will take about 30 minutes to the geylang station. However it's a nice relaxing wall if u have the time. It's near to the local neighbourhood, thus u really get to experience the local culture. Rooms are very small and basic but it's clean. WiFi is strong and available. Staff...

Staying in Joo Chiat

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Venue Hotel the Lily is a excellent choice for tourists and travelers who like to stay slightly away from the city centre to savour a taste of the Singaporean lifestyle. The hotel is priced very attractively although it is newly renovated, with most of the little indulgence one may not expect from a hotel in its priced category. All rooms are served with (complimentary) high speed wifi, with in room mini-fridge/safe etc. Just a few doors away, we have bakeries, local delicacies, Vietnamese restaurants, 24hrs convenient stores and supermarkets. The beach (East Coast Park) is just 10 mins by taxi, if the sun and sea could add to the joy of the stay. East Coast Park also offers seafood & other gourmet restaurants and other recreation activities (bicycle, roller blade rentals etc) Thus for a short relaxing holiday or an escape from the cold, Venue Hotel the Lily may just be your perfect hideout. ... more   less
