“Great for stop over.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Had a night stop over here, although small the room was very clean & service was very good. Able to leave our bags in the room near check-in desk for most of the day. Located in the middle of the red light district, although a bit quieter than previous hotel 2 streets away. Plenty of eateries close by & 10 minutes from train.

I had heard that Singapore was expensive but this place was rough. It is in the red light district which isn't that off putting but this place was a cinder block windowless cave. We had requested a room with two beds but was told that that was not available. So my friend and I had to share a bed. The grossest worked over hotel blanket known to man was at the foot of the small double so we slept in our sleep sacks. Luckily it was only for one night. Food was available right outside which was good.

Not in downtown but out in the burbs where the locals live.
Easy to find and felt safe the whole time.
Room was not large but very clean and bed comfortable.
Staff were busy but still helpful when needed.
Plenty of eating options in the streets around which I really enjoyed.

We booked this hotel after reading Trip Advisor reviews.

We realised it was out of Singapore Central but I was looking for a budget hotel which was clean.

We had read the district was a bit 'seedy' so wasn't expecting much and didn't get much in the way of glitz and glamour but what we did get was a real location where real people live and eat and yes, you do see 'ladies of the night' but nothing was threatening and certainly didn't offend us.

The hotel room itself was not large but clean enough, The bathroom was a 'wet' bathroom ie no shower curtain or enclosed cubicle so you had to be careful where you put your towel or clothing garments. The grouting in the lower tiles could have done with a good scrub but it wasn't enough to be called disgusting or filthy.

We caught public transport into the city. The stop is just up the main street and very reasonable. If you want to walk a little bit further you can catch the undergound which is excellent.

One thing we did think was a bit rich was that you had to buy a block of 2 hours of internet which you had to use all at once. I guess they have to make up some money somehow as the rooms were very inexpensive. The airconditioning in the room worked very well although it took trial and error to get the right temperature and air flow.

We would stay here again if we were looking for budget accommodation in Singapore.



All in all I thgought

Singapore is an expensive place for hotels. I was only here for a night so decided to go cheapo. It is fairly clean and I had no issues with checking in and out so that was good. Aircon works and works great as well. Lots of little side street places to eat so you won't go hungry. Didn't stay too long so cannot say much more. On the downside, a good 10-15min walk from the station and the blankets - yucky man!!! But then, what do you expect. Good for one night stay/stop over or low in cash and cannot afford any place else.

Room Tip: None. Only stayed for a night

Our stay in his hotel was so nice. The reception area, although small but smelled good. The room was very comfortable and dis not smell musty. The interiors were good. The beds are comfortable and the aircon is so cold! You can relax. It is so close to the nearest bus station. The location is in a red light district but the atmosphere was so nice.. I really recommend this hotel to those who'd like to stay in Singapore.
