A good hotel
Good point: - The good price. - It's located near of Chinatown, you can wander many place around. - It's take about 5 minutes on walk to the nearest MRT station, easy to go anywhere of Singapore - Having many things for normal using such as: hair dryer, fridge, water boiler, bowl, chopsticks, spoon, ... - Quiet and private space. You do not go through reception desk anytime because the reception room is separated - Good wifi connection. - Staffs are friendly - Room has air conditioner and ventilator Need to improved: - Cushion is soft

very good. despite the bad review i read earlier
well surprisingly, since we read alot review and 80% were bad, we didnt expect anything. maybe after all those review, they went renovate the places. the rooom we stay on third floor. suppopse we booked queen bed but it become those bed that can occupied 2 ppl on bottom and one person on top. another extra bed with roller in inside the room too. space wise the room is not big but since we staying one night its fine. also, surprisingly they have water dispenser, both hot and cold, hair dryer and iron too. the water pressure was good and strong. and despite review saying its noisy, we hardly heard any noise pollution from the nearby bars. stay for one night, 14 april. the kitchen and toilet area is extremely hot because the window was opened and it faced back alley with all airconds exhaust fan located thus making the place very hot. but good thing is my cloth and towel dry within one hour even at night haha towel provided for free. but no shower gel. there is one, but i dont think its for shower. do smell like washing hand gel to me.
