“Just ok”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

Travelled here only for one night. The rooms are ok considering the cheap price. However, there were only 2 single beds (we wanted a double) and there was mould in the shower. I probably won't be staying here again next time. The staff were friendly and polite.

Hotel was a bit overpriced but most of Singapore accommodation is. Location looks good on a map, but was up a hill and surrounded by big highways, so it was a hilly walk and lots of traffic light crossings to get back from Orchard road. Wifi was expensive, about $9 for 1hour. Good thing is check out is at 12pm. Bed was comfy.

The location is perfect, right next to an MRT station (5min by walking) and a shopping center (plaza singapore) but the rest is really average.. The rooms weren't very well-cleaned, some hair and stains on the towels. The service is also average, it depends a lot on who is working in the reception. I recommend this hotel if you are not planning on doing more then sleeping there.
One more thing: the wifi is only for ONE DEVICE per room (even
If you are two per room), which means that you can't for example use your phone and computer at the same time, one of the devices will be kicked out.

The hotel is located at the beginning of Orchard road which is the famous shopping street. The hotel breakfast and dinner was fine. Not that expensive but I considered it's ample enough. The facilities of the hotel is not that good. Entrance to the swimming pool locked although it isn't that late. I don't know why. The hotel staff at reception desk didn't want to smile. A question asked, an answer given but nothing else. Don't know why. They were not as friendly as other hotel staff I normally experience in Singapore.

Good breakfast with vegetables and fruits. Good night sleep. Good, central location, close to the MRT, but not easy access from the MRT station.
The water flowing out of the shower cabin in the bathroom during shower.

We had a difficult time finding a room in Singapore that would house a family of four in one room without having to purchase two rooms. Fortunately we found this hotel and they gave us a room four four with a view of the park. It had air conditioning, a shower and room for all of us.
It's a very clean, well run hotel close to the dhouby ghat MRT station.

I spent 8 days in this hotel for a conference. The hotel is ideally located as the underground is nearby and there is a large shopping mall in the vicinity. The facilities of the hotel are basic. Rooms are reasonably large and clean. What I like most is the wood floor without any carpet. The bed is the best I have ever had in hotel rooms for years, it is simply firm but very comfortable. The restaurant serves standard food with quite a few varieties (local, eastern and western cuisine) but the fact that I had stayed there for 8 days made the food less attractive. There is a pretty nice outdoor swimming pool too. One thing I find most inconvenient is the lack of WiFi service at the lobby. The hotel charges for use of WiFi which is fair enough. But it is quite unbelievable that WiFi service is not available free of charge even at the hotel lobby. I paid for the use of WiFi at a pretty high rate ('cos I had to stay there for 8 days) but at any one time, only one device can be connected with WiFi. So guests need to think twice before choosing this hotel.
