I stayed for 3 nights and already read the reviews on TA so was prepared for some of the negatives. Firstly the location was excellent on a quiet street in Chinatown. It was close to the MRT and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. There is also an excellent 24 hour internet cafe across the street which was dirt cheap, $2 per hour. The bedroom was indeed tiny, but the room was well designed, I managed to store my luggage (a huge backpack, wheelie suitcase and daysack) quite easily under the bed. The bathroom had the glass doors and window as described by others in TA, however a black smoked effect was on the glass, this could be a retrofit, based on negative comments. There was a 32" tv on the end of the bed, however the channels were a bit limited I think there was 8 in total a mixture of english and oriental language. Overall this was good value for money, I paid US$110 per night which was pretty good compared to other hotels. However if you want more room you will have to bite the bullet and pay more.
