I arrived at the hotel at 2 in the morning. The receptionist could not have been more welcoming and helpful this was a good sign. I had a room on the 3rd floor. The room though small had been designed to fit everything you need in. Two glass cubicles for the shower and toilet, with opaque glass to give some privacy. A big bed with a large flat screen TV on the wall opposite. The lighting system with changing colours was fun. A fitted table top and chair allowed me to get my work done reasonably well. A cooler cabinet was provided with free soft drinks. I had to kneel to get access to the safe.
I had a better look at the reception area in the morning. The wall was bright with Bollywood type illustrations. A front lobby had seating made up of barbers chairs and cinema seats. Table football and a bar with magazines to read
The breakfast room, that later in the day was a restaurant and coffee bar, was communal dinning. This worked well as there was plenty of seating and you never felt crowded.
The choice of breakfast was limited to fresh fruit or pancakes or eggs/bacon. I stuck to the fruit - a generous portion of local fruit with yogurt topping and lime peel - very good. Unlimited coffee and orange juice - both good. You could help yourself to croissants and other rolls from the serving hatch. The lady serving breakfast was friendly and nicely concerned that guests were well looked after.eh morning.
I checked out the Jacuzzi on the 2nd floor - in a little grass terrace. Brightly colored and a nice place to relax after trecking around the city.
The hotel staff were all very friendly - providing directions, maps, taxi bookings, ironing boards with a smile and friendly greetings every time you came anywhere near them.
The hotel is well situated in Little India with loads of places to eat.
The metro is a short distance away making exploring Singapore very convenient.
I really enjoyed this hotel and the stay - I would love to return.
