Reviewed 3 June 2014

We had 3 nights in a standard room. A bit shocked with the size of the room in comparison with size of the building. Cannot imagine if you stay with lots of luggage/baggage and there will be no enough space to do something in the room. Despite of the room, the hotel location is reachable. The nearest MRT station is Little India and you can walk for 5 minutes to get there. You will find a bus station right in front of the hotel and some of halal restaurants nearby the hotel. The staff is very helpful, they will give you some option directions/transportation to the place you want to visit. In case you suffer to get cold, you cannot to turn off the AC. The AC is parallel with electricity of the room. The most advantage of this hotel is its location.

We where a family of 4 with small kids under 5. Had 3 nights in a Family room in this hotel and was satisfied for the price paid. 2 doublebeds was great, room spacious. Not much cubboardspace but we just kept most of our things in our suitcases. No window didn't bother us as we wanted to sleep in as we where jetlagged. Only downside for the room was the bathroom, it was poorly designed, and the entire floor would be wet after a shower, the handheld shower was placed in the middle between the sink and toilet, there was no squeeze/mop for the floor or bathmat provided, neither much place to hang/dry towels.
The staff was friendly and when we arrived with a sleeping toddler at midnight, one parent got handed the key while the other checked in.
Al in all good value for Singapore and a very central location. Still 10 min walk to the nearest MRT and its very hard to haul a taxi right outside the hotel as they are not allowed to stop there, its a bus lane.

The main factor about this hotel is LOCATION. While I thought it is a blink and a miss signage, all cab drivers seem to knew exactly where it is on selegie road.

The hotel is good only if you intend to use it just to crash after a long day of sightseeing or travel. The room is as small as a matchbox but very clean. It was slightly smelly initially but on spraying deodorant it did the job just fine. The location makes up for the lack of space, being walking distance from Little India and the MRT line going to Harbour front and Clark Quay.

For the price we paid, I think we got a clean room at a good location for the purpose that we needed it for.

5-10 minutes walks from Little India MRT. Places to eat and store is very near to the hotel too. Stayed in family room (no window) for 3 nights. The room is clean and tidy (they clean the room and change the towel everyday!). The staff is friendly. No exhaust fan in the room and the electricity cut off when you leave the room (so the food in the fridge will get warm). Overall it's a good place to stay in Singapore. Recommended to stay.

The staff was really nice and friendly. Sometimes they were really busy so cannot help you as much as you would like. The cleaning of the room was excelent and we didnt see any bug in the hotel. The location is excelent, 2 blocks from little india metro station. And the aircon worked all the time perfectly (this is indispensable in singapore) We booked a room for 4 ( 1 room - 2 queens) for S$120 each day aprox. The room didnt have any window, so everything was a little bit wet. The sheets, the mattress, also some of our clothes after 3 nights there. It seems there isnt any exhaust fan in the room or bathroom, so the room is like LAS VEGAS, what happens there, stays there :-S. . There wasnt more than 1 powerpoint in the room and when you leave the room, the electricity is cut off, so you cannot leave charging any device or any drink inside the fridge. There was no more furniture than a chair and a light table. The shower is in between the lavatory and the toilet with no shower place separately or curtains, so you can wash the whole bathroom while you take a shower.
Also, we think they offer the hotel as a "love hotel".
Anyway, I think there is no better product for that price in Singapore.

I like the location of the hotel because it's near at Dhoby Ghaut station and there's a 24 food house near the hotel. I also like the service at the hotel. The room is also clean and maintained. During our 5 days stay, I can't remember any untoward incident. I will definitely going back to this hotel whenever I visit Singapore again.
