We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in Dec 2011. We picked it primarly for cost as it was offering 2 nights for the price of 1. It is a brand new funky and modern budget hotel. Rooms are on the small side but have flat screen TVs with HBO, BBCW, coffee and tea making facilities, fridge, bottles of water for free replaced daily, wifi and free local calls. Staff were nice and friendly.
The only drawback is the location which is a good 25 min walk to the nearest MRT station. You can catch bus no12/32 directly across from the hotel to Bugis/Victoria street in aroud 20 mins. We didnt mind as we were there for 4 nights. There was no noise from either outside or fro other rooms. Also the Katong area is quite nice the lovely east coast park is 20 mins walk away from the hotel and there are lots of bars and restaurants in the area around the hotel. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone that doesnt mind not being in the centre of the city and is okay with small rooms. Value is especially good if you can snag one of their deals. I would stay here again

Guests will feel welcomed in the lobby, decorated in bright Peranakan colors, that comes with comfortable seating areas and a business center. Rooms come in four different designs, themes and colors that guests will feel the freshness and variety each time they stay with us. A roof top swimming pool and Jacuzzi offer guests a chance to relax in a tranquil environment with a bird's eye view of the low-lying housing architecture symbolic of the Joo Chiat heritage. Bright colors are used on design of the hotel, similar to the patented sophistication seen in the homes of the Peranakans, creating a warm and inviting ambience and leaving guests with fond memories of the stay.
