“Not as good as they think it is.”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Except for the fact that it is close to a major MTR station which makes it easy to get around there is nothing special about the location.
We had booked a Deluxe Room but it was tiny. The bed stretched almost completely across the room leaving just a tiny space to get to the other side - where there was more furniture than space. The bathroom was minute!
The room had redundant technology like a Smart TV that allowed you to do your e-mail. Who needs that?
There is a cafe/bar beside the hotel on the ground floor but the breakfast fare didn't stretch to a croissant.
And for all this you pay the price of a proper hotel.
Very disappointing.

Fantastic location, just a few minutes walk from Orchard Road. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is a very reasonable price for the area and standard. Our room was lovely, decorated to a very high standard and the bathroom as well. The only down side was the the hotel entrance & lobby was a bit run down looking and could do with freshening up. It has wifi included and the connection was good. We only had drinks at the hotel bar and the service was good. We didn't eat there so can't comment on that. I would recommend as it's location was perfect and overall great value for money.

We feel comfortable when we stay in the room. The wi-fi is strong and we appreciated it. It is near the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station and it is convenient to get to any places along the MRT lines. The staff are polite and are efficient to do the things requested. The only thing I complain is it is very quiet and a bit dark if we come back late (such as after 10:30pm).

Room Tip: each bed is big enough and comfortable for one person (twin bed room). if you can, it is better to c...

Stayed 4 nights. All-in price roughly £100UK a night. Wifi totally reliable and fast, around 100mb/minute to update iPhone apps for example. Internet TV, though they need to sort out the display to make it work properly - "back" function off edge of screen. Good shower, quiet aircon - in fact absolute silence in my room, number 311 (a smoking room), could hardly hear the outside world. Didn't try to look for a breakfast room, if there is one. Very handy location. Helpful staff, would like to thank Nazrena who I contacted by phone & email before my stay. Coin operated internet terminal & printer in reception, 1 SD per 15 mins plus 50 cents per A4 page (B/W only though it seems), not bad prices. Also watch out what "gizzits" you use/grab in the rooms, there's a price list which shows that practically anything which isn't nailed down can be bought as a "souvenir"! All in all though, a great choice hotel in what is quite an expensive city.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days. It's very accessible. Less than a minute from the train station, we able to get to the hotel from the airport via train in less than 30 minutes. It's located right by orchard road and walking distance to all the malls. The room was small but cozy and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay here very much!

This is a good hotel in a great location. Dhowby Ghaut station is a few minutes away and links you to 3 of the 4 lines on the MRT. Hotel Innotel is well run and the GM was always available for a quick chat or just a good morning.
We found the staff to be always alert and very helpful which always adds to the comfort ratings meter.
One has to accept that this is a business hotel aimed at the corporate traveller so do not expect too much frills that one would get from a leisure four star property.
I think you must decide what you really need from a hotel when making a choice. Do really need all the frills and comforts or is this the place you use as your base station.
For us the idea of using the hotel as a base suited us well as getting around all day was easy to access other parts of Singapore hassle free yet not spending a huge chunk on accomodation with all the frills but there is no time to use it.

Just outside orchard street, the hotel is located at the right place for shopping. Also the metro station dhoby ghat is just 3 minutes away. The rooms are smaller as expected in the boutique hotel. The bathrooms are smaller and a tad uncomfortable if two people stay. Also the food from the restaurant just outside the hotel is awful. So breakfast there are only 4 choices. So I would recommend to book the rooms without breakfast cost. You can pick up food at the station.
