This accommodation is basic. There is no denying that. BUT everything you need is right here. IF you are looking for a pool, there is a really good one on the roof. If you are looking for kids' places to play, they are looked after. Laundry and gym are taken care of... AND location is very good. Within 5 mins walk to Bras Basah station, shops, religious centres, museums and even raffles are within comfortable walking distance and anything else (ie the sands casino complex or Sentoza) are only a cab ride away.
I went there on holiday and was very satisfied but if I was there longer term, I would have been equally pleased. This caters for all purposes.
Staff were lovely and tried genuinely hard to accommodate all needs.
The only thing missing was luxury and for a holiday some may be looking for that - which if we're honest, for the price you can find elsewhere in Singapore many times over.
