My siblings and I stayed in this hotel October of 2011. I was on a business trip while my siblings were on vacation. When we checked in, the lady at the front desk kept on insisting that the hotel voucher that I had with me was not the one that they were looking for. After a few minutes of explanation and discussion, she still couldn't understand me and she had to call for another person to validate my voucher. It was such a hassle considering that I just came from my flight and I wanted to lie down and rest. Perhaps they could employ front desk personnel who are more fluent in English.
I had no complaints about the room. It was big enough for my siblings and I, it was cool, it was clean, had a television and a ref. The room was not so fancy but it was very comfortable. The hotel had free shuttle service to Orchard. And if you can't catch that, hopping onto a bus is very accessible. Going back from wherever you are is not a problem too.
How I wish though that their breakfast buffet had more options. Although I like Chinese food, having more western choices would have been greatly appreciated. It would be a great help too if they have people in the resto who could understand and speak English.
The best thing I like about the hotel (aside from the fact that it is very affordable for Singapore standards where everything is expensive) is that it is nestled a few minutes away from the busy center. You could still see trees around it. It gives you the illusion that you are not in the middle of a concrete jungle and can have a peaceful night's sleep.
Over all, you get your money's worth in this hotel. Budget-wise, it's a sure winner.
