Our room was not ready for us. The first room had broken pieces of glass in the room, used tissue behind the toilet door and hair in the bathroom. We got shifted to another room , which was similar with dust on the window cill and hair in the bathroom. We called the housekeeping to clean the room. But he was least bothered, so we ended up cleaning the room ourselves. The location is the only advantage with a quick walk to the station. The entrance lobby and waiting area are decent enough. Not bad for budget travelers, but be ready to clean the room yourselves. Also, I could hear every conversation from the corridor. Bad acoustics.

Room Tip: Make sure to take the window rooms and check the rooms for cleanliness.

This hotel is overall average. However, for a short stay I couldn't find anything better for better value for money. We were a family of 5 and stayed in a large family room.

The room was spacious enough and clean. but the bath/toilet was quite small and a bit leaky.
There are plenty of small eateries around so finding a place to eat is not a problem. Mum enjoyed the short walk to Mustafa centre.

From western standards, this was of a 3 star motel standard but good value for money.
I would recommend this for a short stay.

clean budget hotel with friendly staff.ideal for a budjet traveler if only seeking a bed for the night and nothing luxurios.
stayed 4 nights in a windowless room,didnt mind it at all because we spent very few hours in the room and only for sleep after exhausting full day traveling and activities.
can take bus to bugis MRT or walk 15mnts.there're few indian restraunts nearby as well.

We stayed for 4 nights in an upstairs superior room (with window) and were very happy with our choice. Rooms aren't big but are well designed and comfortable.
Location is great; near the heart of Little India but far enough away that it is still quiet. Also close to MRT. (Little India or Bugis)

Its ideally a hotel where you can stop over to get refershed. Personally I cant think of staying here. The bathroom is small enough to even turnaround. The fuse went off as soon as I connected my mobile for charging. Thus, if you need to get rid of a jet lag for a couple of hours its fine.
