This little hotel is well located, near to Chinatown with night clubs close enough by to access on foot but not so close as to impact on a good night's sleep.
The drawcard with this hotel is the funky retro theme of the place, that will probably appeal more to younger travelers than older ones.
The room was beautifullly presented as per the photos on the web, but as might be expected in Singapore, space was at a premium. The room I booked was a single as I was travelling alone. The glass bathroom was almost designed as centrepiece of the room and I would imagine (and hope) that bathrooms in twin and double rooms offer somewhat more privacy.
The original window slats are still on the windows, but touch with caution as they seem rather fragile.
The Hindu temple opposite woke me up fairly early with rather boisterous music but I understand that my visit overlapped with the Deepavali festival, so that's just how it goes. I doubt it would regularly be an issue.
The hotel staff were some of the friendliest and most helpful Singaporeans I have met, and I have several Singaporean friends!
I do think that the room rates are a little steep compared to some of the other options in the neighbourhood.
Overall, this is a well run establishment and offers something a little different and unique for a short stay.More
