Honestly the oddest hotel I have ever stayed in, but not in a bad way.
Rooms - I believe every room is different here, we stayed in the reading room which was a twin. It was very compact but well designed to make the best use of the space. The beds were very comfortable but the large window could have done with blackout blinds as it was quite bright in the morning. The bathroom set up is very odd, the sink and vanity area are actually in the bed and living area. From the shower you can see the street, which is admittedly a little disconcerting, however having viewed the hotel from the street it would be very difficult for anyone passing by to see in.
Food - Breakfast was not what I was expecting. Although from the pictures it looks as though there is a breakfast area in the hotel, this is actually more like a kitchen area where you can eat your own food and buy drinks from a vending machine. Breakfast actually involves using a voucher in a local place. Be warned the food here is not at all western or continental, however all of the locals seem to eat here and we found it a good way to experience the culture.
Location - Fantastic! A 2 minute walk to Orchard Road and the Somerset MRT station. We paid 30 Singapore dollars for a metered taxi transfer from the airport at peak time.
Service - check in was swift but please note you pay on arrival. Little extras such as free toiletries, complimentary pastries and a fantastic service room with shower in the lobby and locked luggage room.
For all its quirks, this hotel was an experience I won't forget in a hurry and would recommend for anyone looking for a unique place at a cheaper price than the forgettable high rise hotels of Singapore.
