5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good location, near to the MRT. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and very nicely designed - they had the feel of a boutique hotel. Good lockers - big enough for a backpack. Great showers - the 'rain style' ones! Had a rooftop to hang out it and a jacuzzi!!! On the day we checked out the staff let us take a shower in the evening when we came to collect our luggage (we were taking a night bus), allowed us to have clean towels so we weren't packing wet ones and even said we should use the jacuzzi!
