Chinatown Hotel
Ranked #202 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 5 January 2010

The location in Chinatown is perfect and it is really close to the MRT so getting around the rest of the city is very easy. The room had no window, but I did not stay for the views anyway. Other than that, the room is clean even though the interior has definately seen better days (the carpet is old and the room smells a bit old). The breakfast is completely ridiculous, only a toaster and white bread and coffee powder. Good thing is that there is a 7/11 close by and there are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. So it is not a luxury hotel but the staff was friendly and I only wanted a bed and a room in a good location in Singapore and this fitted the purpose.

Well what a dissapointment, We travelled from Australia, to singapore and was looking forward to New year in singapore before leaving to the
Uk, As we entered the lobby we thought OH MY GOD, then the recipionist
handed the key, and it was down hill from there, The room was filthy, the smell was even worse, the bedding had all holes in it, the shower/
toilet was as mouldy as you could get it, and you would not have even wanted the breakfast, a loaf of bread and a dirty toaster, right next to the toilet, which the door didnt shut, I just couldent wait to get back to the airport,

How does this sort of hotel be able to stay open, all the bad things you can imagine and far worse was all in one place, We would never never NEVER, stay there again,

We will even be taking it further, as false advertising.

Arrived a rainy evening at this hotel, after reading the recommendation (!!!!) of this establishment in "The Rough Guide", describing the hotel as a intimate boutique hotel with smart rooms- everything clean and new. Well unfortunately, this hotel is quite the opposite, infact it is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in and on top of it I paid S$ 108 for a single room. The room was shabby and smelly with old worn-out furniture + tv did not work. When showering water poured out on the room's fitted carpet and this had also left mouldy traces on the wall. I left the next day, having some trouble though finding something in the same price range. Ended up at Hotel 81 Bencoolen, a far better option and value for money.

Stayed: September 2007
