“Perfect place at quite reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013 via mobile

The inn is located at Little India district with easy access to pubs and restaurants and MRT (metro; about 500 m). Rooms are clean and nice with kettles, coffee and A/C. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

It is clean and comfortable to stay. I was really satisfied with its room and their service. Room is clean and looks rather nice. The hotel is not far from Bugis Junction, just about 7 minutes walking. Value for money to stay expensive Singapore.

Room Tip: Ask for quieter place when booking.

Finding decent and inexpensive accommodations in Singapore is tough but Mayo Inn stands out by offering no-frills and only the essentials for a fair price. It's located in between two MRT stations: Little India and Bugis making it easy to get around. It's also a stone throw away from Kampong Glam and Little India. The room and bathroom are clean. Everything was functioning as it should. It can get a bit noisy during the day but if you're always out and about it won't matter much. The air conditioning is slow in cooling the room but after a while it gets really cold. In other similarly priced places the shower is over the toilet but not here which is a very good thing. The lift was under repair when we stayed but we did not really mind as our room was just one floor up although it was a pain bringing down luggage after a few days of shopping. The staff was helpful in assisting us with getting a cab on our way to the airport.

Room Tip: Ask for a room located along Mayo St. Rooms near Jalan Besar can be noisy during the day.

Accommodation in Singapore is expensive and the Mayo Inn offered us accommodation for 4 at a fair price. The room was small but the four of us squeezed in for the night. The room faced onto the street and was quite noisy. Overall adequate for a night or two.

The room is very clean and neat, reasonable size room. It's about 5-8 min walk to Bugis MRT where there are lots of eateries and a mall. One bad thing of this hotel is the lifts were out of order during our stay so it was quite a hike up and down for the 6 nights but other than that, it's pretty good value for money considering how expensive the hotel prices are in SIngapore.

Average, no-frills hotel - it was what we expected given the price we paid. The room was average-sized by Singapore standards but it was clean and it had all the basic amenities (AC, TV, clean bathroom with hot water). Only two complaints: 1) it's beside an MRT station that's being built so it can get quite noisy and 2) their lift is not functioning so you may end up carrying your luggage up 3 floors.
