“You get what you pay for - not much!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2005

We booked the Boon Wah Hotel and the best way to summerise here is "you get what you pay for". We lost deposit and moved hotel straight after checking in. It was smelly, dirty sheets etc.. Granted their was Air Con, but all this did was blow the dust and cob-webs around the room (no joke!!!!). Not the most welcoming place either. We moved into the singapore budget hotel chain, "hotel 81", and that we would reccomend. great value!

As the other review says, probably bearable for one night, no more!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2005

It's a room for under US$30 so you can't expect too much- the floor is painted, the blankets are worn, there are a couple of insects in the bathroom with you and the lock on the door is a laugh (however, they do supply you with a rubber door stop). The water pressure in the shower was first-class, though!
I chose this place because I only had 24 hours in Singapore and it's proximity to 24 hour shopping at the bargain centre Mustafa Department Store is great. The location is good- accessible from the Little India MRT if you have little luggage, though I had some problems finding it.
Breakfast is provided- white bread, toaster and some condiments, but in an area where a great meal need only cost you SG$3, this is superfluous.
I wouldn't recommend staying here if you're a single female (Singapore is a very safe place, but I still got some looks and catcalls walking around at night) or planning to stay for longer than a day.
