“Looks are deceiving....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

Probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! When I return home I'll eMail them, asking for the make & model of their mattresses. The room was also very quiet. I rather enjoyed the park view I had from the 10th floor. There isn't much of interest in the immediate vicinity -but- the free bus shuttle service solves that little problem. Or it's only a few minutes walk to the nearest Metro station.

Stayed October 2013, travelled solo

This hotel is very good value and is in a reasonably central location. It is ideal for business travel on a budget and would also be ok for couples.
It has a quirky retro feel that is a bit over the top, but the rooms are spacious and clean, the staff are very helpful and overall it is to be recommended.

I have now stayed here 4 times on business trips and will be back there again next month.

Room Tip: The executive rooms are very spacious, worth a few extra dollars.

Stayed here along with my wife for a day around the Singapore Grand Prix weekend. We were initially a lil skeptical about the whole retro theme and with Marilyn Monroe figurines on the walls and stuff (as per pictures), but we had a great time at the hotel. The rooms arent all that small like some of the reviews mention, eod its Singapore and rents are costly! Bathrooms were clean, the rooms were tidy, beds were well laid out.

Breakfast was okay, decent infact! Free wifi :) Distance wise, very close to the Outram Park MRT and the hotel provides free coach services every 20-30 minutes to the hotel. (Tip to hotel - It would also be good if these coaches pick people from the MRT station to the hotel). The walking path from the station to the hotel has been well indicated and thats a good thing. Free complimentary snacks during check in :)

Another tip to the hotel - If the guest is having an early checkin or a late checkout of a few hours, say 2-3..I think you should give it to them complimentary, instead of charging it at 15 SGD. Just a suggestion though.

Room Tip: If you are carrying quite a bit of luggage, its better you take a taxi to the hotel, rather than wal...

Rooms are really small (you can't even walk all around the bed). Very little room for luggage. Bathroom is fine although a bit mouldy in places. Complimentary drinks/snacks on arrival is nice. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Tried the breakfast once, not really my thing - would be ok for lunch - dim sum, fish, chicken etc. Location good - close to Outram Park metro. The metro system is great, very clean, reliable and cheap! The air-freshener used on the ground floor in the air-conditioning is over-powering, really floral and quite unpleasant. Reasonably priced for Singapore. Fine to stay in for a few days.

The rooms are really small, and really colourful. The services from the staffs are good and breakfast is quite okay. WiFi is very good!

But the location is not too friendly and would to see more shuttle bus services

Rooms are clean and quiet environment, very nice fragrance when you stepped into the hotel. 5 minutes walk to Outram MRT or every 20 minutes free shuttle service. Staff are friendly. Tried 1 breakfast, was average, just like any other 3 stars hotel. Will check out the wine bar and the pool in the next visit.
Got a queen size bed, slept very well.
In Singapore, a night stay at SGD120++ , I must say its not bad- cannot complain.

Happily, this hotel is on the better end of the price verses value equation... this is important as Singapore is not a cheap place to stay when it comes to hotels. Easy to get here from the airport on the MRT. The hotel is a short walk from Outram Park station bordering the Pearl's Hill Park. Save your cash as taxis are also quite expensive in Singapore.

Staff are efficient, professional and courteous at all times. Check-in was smooth but I was initially disappointed that the room on the 6th floor stank of smoke, despite being an entirely smoke free property. I was quickly changed to a higher floor (12) and this was much better. Rooms are relatively clean and quiet on the park side. I can't imagine this is so on the expressway side as it is, well, an expressway!

I wish I could say my fellow guests were quiet but that was not the case... come on guys, calling out to each other down the hall and banging on doors at midnight? You can't tell me this is acceptable practice back home in Italy! Aside from this it is an inexpensive place to stay and with a bit of bussing and walking, most places are reachable on this small island.

Restaurant was clean and surprisingly good selection of local and international cuisine. Expensive by local standards but offset by the discount coupons issues upon check-in. Better value fare is available nearby in Chinatown or any nearby food co-op/market.

Linen and towels are new and clean. Soap, shampoo and toothbrushes were all present and accounted for. The complimentary snacks included Pepsi, crisps and nuts. One thing I would change is the air-conditioning... it was positively Arctic in there and for the life of me, I couldn't find a thermostat anywhere in the room to turn it down! I ended up getting out of bed in the middle of the nigh and pulling the room key card out of the socket to turn it off.

A bit isolated but not bad for that. I would return with little hesitation if I needed to.

Room Tip: Park side, not expressway side!
