Good value hotel with agora rates

Location, reception staff, shower
We had an enjoyable stay here, but advertised to have jacuzzi on roof which was no longer there, also they have a problem with wifi, where they work on voucher system but as often as not when putting in password, their log on system was saying the password did not exist, several guests were constantly complaining to reception about this.

Location - in city centre close to public transport
Sabrina N. Solo travelers Singapore, January 2, 2014
Good value for money if you need to be in the city

Decent-sized rooms, friendly staff and city-centre location
I just needed a place to sleep, so this was perfect. Although it is within walking distance of some great restaurants, I would not recommend walking after dark.

Benjamin D. Couples South Africa, September 29, 2013
Very Bad

they arranged parking for our cars.
We had a terrible experience. The manager bardge into our room and the staff and manager knocked on the door of the room next to ours for about an hour between 5 and 6 in the morning, waking us all. my friends checked out just after 7 just to get out of the hotel. I phoned to complain about it and two days later the 'manager' have still not phoned me back about my complaint
