Value for Money
Location is great, room is clean with big bed (king size) which seldom found in most hotels. Nearby there are still under construction, day time abit noisy. One thing i feel uncomfortable about the room is the aircon. The aircon is facing directly the bed. Cold air keep blowing to my face, cant sleep well.

Noisy Construction Yard
Pretty good room for the price. Excellent, helpful and friendly staff. Massive construction works on two sides of the hotel. Currently, and for the next year at least, the Bencoolen St. MRT station is being constructed right next door to the hotel. Work begins in the early morning and ends around 6 pm.it was very noisy in my 3rd floor room. The street outside is severely restricted by the construction. Be careful not to go down the wrong side as it's a dead end. Hotel good, construction work bad.

It could have been a good hotel ..Staff were helpful and friendly....but would not recommend it this time due to the construction of the MRT infront of the hotel..We used the backdoor to go to orchard,get a cab etc..breakfast was served along the walkway where people walk like construction workers while we had breakfast..
