Positive Reviews

Quiet and Clean

Tranquil and calm, the atmosphere at this budget hotel was ideal for those looking for a quiet haven in the hustle and bustle of Singapore. In addition to its peaceful atmosphere, guests also praised this hotel for its tidiness. Judging by past reviews, this recent improvement to the hygiene standards here is much appreciated and has certainly not gone unnoticed.

Excellent Value for Money

This property also went down well with bargain hunters looking for a value in notoriously pricey Singapore. While not right in the heart of the city, its proximity to bus and metro links made it a solid pick for those looking for good access to the sights and attractions of wider Singapore. Many also liked its proximity to the food stalls on the adjacent Whampoa Road.

Negative Reviews

Extremely Small Rooms

The size of the guest units here proved to be problematic. Simply put, many found them to be incredibly and uncomfortably small. These cramped quarters were emphasised by the lack of windows in many units, a point that particularly shocked western travellers. In the equally tiny bathrooms, many felt that the showers, sinks and toilets were set far too close together.

Mixed Customer Service Experience

The guest experience at this hotel is mixed. Confusingly, many reported both outstandingly good and helpful service as well as downright surly encounters with staff at various points throughout their stays here. On the whole, this didn’t make a great impression and guests would have liked to have seen more consistently good service – as well as friendlier staff – throughout their experiences here.
