“Good location!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

The Hotel is in a very good location, you can walk in one of the best areas of the city, close to MRT station and also to nightlife.
The rooms are small, but have everything you need for a short stay and also the staff is very helpful and nice.
If you are on a budget and want to stay close to many attractions and in Clark Quay it is a good option.

Room Tip: The rooms are small but have everything you need for a short stay.

The service is good that they provide birthday cake for my friend's birthday and the room is clean. There are beds enough for 4 pax in a room and rooftop view is excellent. LOve the vintage feel in the room.

Nice hotel for Budget travellers. Rooms are very small, complimentary breakfast is very very restricted without much choices. Bathrooms are so strange, very uncomfortable. The rates are comparable to any other 4 start but the hotel itself can be termed as 2 star minus the size of the bathrooms a normal two star has.
Definitely not worth the money. It would have been had the rates been lower by 60%. Very Very over priced for the comfort and the size.
Positives- Great location, nice and helpful staff, no communication issues as they all speak proper english.

The hotel is about 45mins - 50mins MRT ride away from the Changi Airport. Alight from Clark Quay MRT station and get out at exit E to Central shopping mall. Walk across the pedestrian bridge and heads towards Carpenters St to the right of back of the escalator.

The roof top have an amazing view! The location is simply accessible to almost anywhere! Chinatown is just 10 minits walk away. Clark Quay & Boat Quay is a stone throw away also.

The staffs are very friendly and helpful.

We booked the Economy room. The room is not big but its practical. We got a room on the 2nd floor. Across the back lane, there were a building lot being torn down and in the midst of being rebuild. Constructions starts in the morning. For those folks who is easily disturbed by noise, its advisable to select a room that is not facing the back lane. The shower is kind of small, for a large person this maybe a challenge! When we got into the room, the smells are kind of musty but the A/C clears the smell away after awhile.

Tips: The SAEX shuttle is just around the corner at the junction of Hong Kong St, in front of the Chinese Medicine Shop on the corner. SAEX shuttles brings you to a lot of locations such as the Zoo/Night Safari. Check out their website for details.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. I booked it because I was only in town for a very short period of time, and it was conveniently located near my meeting place and priced well. I was very impressed. The staff was wonderful! It really feels like a comfortable, family environment. They late arrival and early departure due to my international flights was no problem at all. The room was small, but fine for business travel, clean, had all the necessary amenities, and a comfy bed. The wifi in the hotel works very well and was free! The best part was the roof-top patio. It was great for watching the sun rise, relaxing after meetings, etc. Breakfast had a nice selection, especially for a small hotel.

Having stayed in Jayleen 1918 several times I made to my favourite hotel for short visits to Singapore. Situated at the beginning of Chinatown, 3 minutes from Boat Quay, 6 minutes from Clark Quay, 10 minutes from financial district and 8 minutes from City Hall it makes this hotel to one of the best locations in town (if you don't insist going shopping on Orchard). The rooms are well equipped and clean, internet is working at high speed, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only complaint is the rather simple breakfast.

Room Tip: book early in advance, they are often sold out. You can also book a triple room for almost the same...

I enjoyed my stay and would definitely choose this hotel again for my next visit! It is very near Qlarke and Boat Quay in 3min walking distance. It is located on a quiet street with a lot of bars nearby.
