This hotel is well situated next to a large variety and choice of food stalls, and close to bus stops as well. We were able to easily catch bus 24 to and from Changi airport straight to the hotel.

Stayed here as it suited our low budget for accommodation in Singapore. Staff were friendly, facilities were basic and the room was adequate. We had a room with no window which seems common for cheaper hotels. Our room came with water, safe and fridge. The bathroom was spacious and the water pressure was good. Next door you'll find a lovely...

Lovely clean hotel. Check in was very fast and staff is very helpful. Rooms were clean and not too small. Only problem is it was quite far from the main areas we wanted to visit and the metro cannot be easily reachable.

We arrived about 10 a.m. We were told, that there is an early-check-in fee. This was very bad, because after more than 18 hours of travel: a shower and a change in clothes would have been pretty fine. So we skipped the shower and go on sightseeing; but we were able to store the luggage for free. When we came...

We stayed 2 nights at champion hotel, as a stopover before travelling to Indonesia. We found this hotel ideal for 2 nights, because it's location is convenient between the airport and the city centre. From the airport we took a metro with only the green line and from the metro station it's a short walk to the hotel. The hotel...

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.
