“Decent place”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

This is a serviced apartment and not a hotel. Rooms are not big with the bed, sofa and the TV arranged in one line one behind the other. It looked like a big hall rather than a room. But since there was moving space inside it was not cramped.

The room had a small 2 seater sofa and a TV in front of it. The room had a tiny kitchen and a small table. The room comes with an internet connection.

The best thing about the place was that they rent bicycles free of cost. I found this very useful to go to the nearby malls as it would take a good 10-15 minutes walk to reach the malls.

One disadvantage : There is no restaurant in the hotel. If you order, they can bring breakfast to your room. But the breakfast was more of a mid-day snack and not sufficient.

Reviewed 16 September 2011

I stayed for one week at Rome Holidays and found it to be an interesting experience. A few of the oddities:

- There is a clothes washer on the balcony but no dryer
- There is a dish dryer in the mini kitchen but no washer
- The toilet has an automatic, heated toilet seat (very high tech!) yet you must manually lock and unlock your door
- The kitchen has a toaster oven but it has old, crinkled aluminum foil in it
- There are three remote controls but no alarm clock, no phone, and a tiny ironing board

On the plus side, the bed is very firm, as are the pillows, there are bicycles that you can borrow at no charge for a few hours, and it's about a 15 minute walk to the extremely convenient MRT station. Try the MRT if you can: it's inexpensive, crowded, and the signs are in English. Great fun!

The staff were polite and the room was clean. The hallways were shockingly hot and humid (it felt like walking into a sauna when you left your room). There isn't a restaurant in the hotel but if you order it, they'll bring breakfast to your room. You can have American-style items or Chinese-style items.

I'd say it's a very decent, well-priced place to stay. Now that I know to pack an alarm clock, I look forward to returning to Rome Holidays.

Stayed there for a business trip, everything was perfect. Free Wi-Fi in the room, breakfast in the room, near a shopping mall with a lot of restaurants. Clean & calm. Not far from MRT station (10-15 min walk)

Reviewed 14 December 2010

First off, this is not a hotel. This is an appartment building with some people living here permanently, and some appartments being rented out. I saw a few people here that looked like there were travelling on business. I feel like I shouldn't compare it to a hotel, but I really can't help it.

Pros: Rooms are clean and comfortable. Have a tiny kitchen stocked with dishes, silverware, microwave, toaster oven, mini fridge. You could technically cook your own meals (if you can find a grocery store that is ... turns out there is one in Miramar basement). About 5 min walk to MRT station. Close to many eating/shopping options (Miramar). Internet connection worked well. Very affordable price.

Cons: No telephone in the room. No wireless. No room service other than breakfast in the morning delivered to your room. On the website it says "outdoor exercise area" read jungle gym. No money exchange service like most hotels normally do. Can hear a bit of noise from the street, which I didn't mind, but could be a bit loud for some people.

Overall I don't have any complaints about staying here. Very good value and quality for the money.
