Very convenient location in central Singapore, not far from Raffles Hotel and most of the interesting places and the Metro Station from the Airport. Dozens of restaurants within 4 mins walk from the Hotel with prices from about £5 for a meal to more than £50. Very popular area for the Steamboat style restaurants where you have a cookpot on your table and like a buffet of uncooked food and you cook what you want, all you can eat from about £11 per head.
Now for the negative points of the Econ Inn, oh dear ! many of the rooms are inside rooms without windows, feel damp and in need of decoration, dirty wallpaper and broken bedside tables. However we did see one of the front rooms which was much much nicer. If only they were to decorate and improve the ventilation in the inside rooms it would be fine. Our air con was working wel and very quiet, the shower was excellent and there was a decent flat screen TV and a kettle with tea and coffee.
Excellent security and a smart entrance and reception area which impressed a relative who booked us in to the hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Not all bad things here and we might even stay again but with an outside room.
