Asphodel Inn Singapore

Reviewed 6 May 2008

This was the worst hotel i have ever seen. I had a problem and had to change my vacation dates and my hotel did not have a room available on my first night and this was the only hotel available, because of a convention in town. The outside looks fine, however the inside smells bad, the sheets are filthy,there are no blankets, the bathroom is a joke, the entire floor of the bathroom is the shower. I had to ask the receptionists a question , he answered and than the owners came out of there room and began to scream at him in front of me in Japanese. They say that they have hair dryers on line, when they actually do not. They gave me an adaptor to use mine and it caught on fire. I would not recomend this hotel to anyone. I checked in @ 2:00 am and checked out @8:30 am and tha was way to long.

This was not my first choice of hotel by any means. I spent hours online trying finding a room for less than SD$100 on Christmas Day and couldn't get much of anything in the city and I refuse to stay in Geylang. The popular hostels were all booked solid and most hotels have raised their rates considerably in the past few months. Expedia had a reasonable price and the reviews here weren't horrid, so I went ahead and booked it.

Asphodel Inn's location is pretty inconvenient with the exception of the Farrer Park MRT station (5 min. walk). The surrounding area is close to Little India, but that's about it. (15 min. walk to Bugis)

Sheets were very clean, bathroom was clean and TV had HBO. Shower was part of the rest of the bathroom as the drain was on the opposite side near the toilet, but I just thought of it as character. There wasn't too much hot water coming from the heating unit in-line to the showerhead.

No frills at all, but the lock on the door worked and the staff was friendly which was all I was really looking for. A paint job and some interior decorating wouldn't kill anyone and would help justify the price.. But,

Do I wish I would have splurged and gone with a modern and more convenient hotel?

Nope.. this place was fine.

This hotel looks ok from the outside and in the communal areas. However our room was (seriously) tiny, dingy and grubby. It was not cleaned during our 3 night stay. However the staff are nice and helpful and the location is reasonable as it is close to Farrer Park MRT. It was the cheapest double en suite we could find but I wished we'd just stretched the budget.

Stayed 4 nights. Main advantage is location (very close to Farrer Park MRT). Room was a fairly good size with a double bed and attached bathroom (standing shower and WC). Bathroom was very clean. Blanket on bed was stained. As were towels (found old lipstick marks on mine). 2 bottles of bottled drinking water supplied every day which was a plus. Nowhere to eat in immediate vicinity (nearest is Little India area - approx 25 mins walk). Service not great. Both the two counter staff who I spoke to on separate occasions were surly and not friendly. My parents also tried to put a call to my room but were refused (quite rudely too) as they - my parents - did not know the room number (who would?). Bizarre and, frankly, unpleasing. Overeall, an OK place for the price (SGD50 per night) and transport convenience but I found service and some cleanliness aspects an issue.
