“Hostel-Hotel-Hostel”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Located just in the backyard of Chinatown, your always at the heart of entertainment.
With the MRT station a few steps ahead, streets of Singapore memorabilia lined up behind you - this well-priced hostel can easily turn into a hotel for the specific needs.

Small rooms.

Bed-no-Breakfast option at optimum value.

Designed for price conscious tourists and is worth taking up.

i found this hotel to be in a good location and compared to many hotels in the country, cheaper. Its clean, it's got small rooms, but if you need a place to sleep while you explore then this one is good. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor and tried to sleep during the afternoon as we had just flown in, it was...

I travelled quite a lot in my life but this was by far the smallest hotel room ever. With 2 suitcases in the room there was hardly any space left to move from your bed to the bathroom. Bathroom area was relatively large only that one very small mirror was kind a odd. Bedding was ok as well as the free internet quality. Staff was extremely uninterested during check-in and check-out. Despite that we could leave our luggage in the hotel at arrival day since we were very early. Luggage had even been brought to our room when we arrived later that day. Also after checking out we were allowed to leave our luggage in the hotel lobby. Looked a bit risky since everybody passed by but luckily everything was still there when we picked it up.

In the elevator we read a note about upgrading to a larger room for 10$ more but this option was not available since the hotel was fully booked at that time. Location is perfect, close to the underground station and in the middle of Chinatown.

If you pay just 20$ extra you can get a nice 4 star hotel next to the city hall or in china town!

The room in this hotel was so small, that you couldn't even fall down :) there was no place to put a suitcase and we were 2. The shower head in the bathroom was just above the toilet! The hotel is really overpriced!

The Porcelain Hotel addressed at 48 Mosque Street, Singapore.
The hotel is located in China town, the hotel is quite good condition and fairly well located, ideal for travelers who are not concerned with luxury.
Building and the rooms are very well maintained, although the room was small but very clean and comfortable to stay overnight.

Stayed in the Hotel for 6 nights. Chose the standard room with queen bed. The room was small but it was very clean. The beds and linens were very comfortable and clean to. Very few stations on the television though. The best part about the hotel is its location in China Town. Lots of eating places nearby and the MRT, bus stop is nearby. This is a great hotel and totally value for money.

Room Tip: If you are on a leisure trip dont choose standard room. They are very small.
