“Great hotel - good location, extra friendly wifi and more”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Stayed here for 6 nights for the leisure portion of my visit and now had to move to hotel booked by work - wish i could have stayed on at Jayleen. It is perfectly situated with the MRT Clarke Quay and the Mall at one end and great street with 7-11 and local bars and eateries at the other - easy to walk to Chinatown in 10 mins, and lots of bus routes either side so very easy to use as a base. Room is small but me and my 5 bits of luggage fitted with no problem, room amenities are great and dual shower (rain shower and normal) is heaven. Wifi is good enough and free throughout the hotel, wired connection can be used in your room as well which is faster. terrace on 4th floor and roof terrace great to sit and relax and means you dont have to go down to the street to smoke. Breakfast is fairly standard but free - you just have to be varied in your selection each day :-). Oh and saving ht ebest for last - every single member of staff I interacted with was absolutely perfect - true customer service - helping with bags, arranging taxis, giving directions etc all done with no asking and in a truly friendly hospitable way. Now i am sat in a much more expensive business hotel and they could learn a lot from the owners of the Jayleen

Room Tip: if you are a smoker try to get a room on the th floor - the terrace on that floor is somewhere you c...

We stayed here for 3 nights in May 2014. Free WIFI on the rooms. Breakfast is rich and delicious but the lunchroom is a bit dirty. ( The rooms are very clean. ) Excellent location, restaurants sights are just few steps.

We stayed at this hotel for three days in April. Excellent location: few minutes away from MRT & taxi stand, famous CQ is only 5-10 minutes walk. You have free wifi in the room (not very fast but ok). Breakfast which are also free are quite nice (eggs can be prepared as you like, variety of fruits, no pork or lard used). Free tea & coffee facilities in the room + bottled water every day. Very helpful staff! The only thing is tiny room though everything is so well situated that you almost didn't notice it

Pictures tell everything, it's nothign special but fulfils the need of staying. Very nicely located in the city, short stroll to few MTR's to reach everything. Shopping center, places to eat and main sights are just around the corner.

A nice hotel is located in the middle of Singapore close to the main sights, shopping areas, MTRs. Personnel is polite & nice speaking very good English. Breakfasts are just ok (almost the same every day. Laundry is given & recieved at reception yourself (give it up to11 am so to have it back next day). The room was small, bathroom had some black mold in it, the linen was ok but not very white. The price is mainly for location which makes this hotel worthy staying in.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the rooms looking out the construction. It s too noisy down there

We stayed at the Jayleen 1918 in Carpenter St for only 2 nights in February 2014 while on our way to India.
I booked a Family Deluxe room which had 3 single beds to ensure that we had sufficient room, using one of the beds for our bags.
No need to post pictures as the room looks exactly like the website.
A/C and wifi was very good as was hot water and the bathroom was large - room overall was very clean.
Beds were comfy and we slept well. A common feature of Singaporean beds however is that they are short. I am a short person myself and found my feet hanging over the end of the bed. Taller people may find this a major issue if staying for a longer period in any of the cheaper hotels in Singapore.
Reading local papers you will see beds advertised with five foot mattresses!
Breakfast mainly catered to the taste of domestic tourists but Clarke Quay is nearby with a Starbucks and a hawker's centre. Breakfast is such a subjective meal i hesitate to recommend anywhere but there are lots of choices.
Over the road from Jayleen there is another hotel with ads for cheaper accommodation in walking distance from $35 Singapore for dorm beds.
Bear in mind that check in times in Singapore are not until 3pm at most hotels - at Jayleen check in is 2pm - time your flight accordingly or arrange early check in.
At another nearby hotel we paid $30 for early check in at 9am - it was well worth the money after a night flight.
One thing about Jayleen - if leaving early in the morning, we had asked the night manager to organise a taxi for us without realising there was a rank over the road.
He arranged for a specific cab who appeared to be a friend to take us to the airport - this guy charged us twice the going rate $50 as opposed to the usual $25.
Watch out for this as when you exit the hotel taxis will approach you if you have booked or not, even at 4am.

Room Tip: I would book a family deluxe room again, purely for the extra room.
