Stayed here for two nights and very surprised with the size of the room. It's tiny. Generally I know hotel rooms in Singapore can be small but the superior room I got from this hotel totally redefines small. The first night I shared the room with a friend of mine, so basically there's wasn't much room to move around with our luggage on the floor. The room is perfect for a one person stay but for 2, it can get squeezy, however the bed fits 2 persons perfectly fine, just the space of the room is small. The bathroom is tiny too. As much as the room's size shocked me, but cleanliness wise is fine. You can forget about watching tv because the reception is poor. Luckily this room has windows (but you can't open it). For those who takes Odyssey bus from KL would find this hotel very convenient because the station is just next door. However, in general there's nothing much on Balestier road. The MRT is far (novena station), you need to take bus number 21 or 131 from opposite direction to get yourself to Novena station otherwise you have to spend about 20 minutes to walk there. Wi fi is not free, I was charged 10SGD for 24 hours usage on one device only. The chicken rice right opposite the hotel is very delicious, worth lining up for. You can go to Shaw plaza, which is about 5-10 minutes walk, nothing much there, but you can get KFC, McDonald and the movies. Not far from the plaza there's a place call American diners, I didn't try it though. The hotel receptionist (Krena) is a very sweet and polite lady. Very helpful too. But the one that works night shift, is not as pleasant as Krena. Overall, I am happy with the cleanliness and Krena's politeness.
