Interesting design
Design, location, price
Good service on arrival. Good location. I had a single room, but was even smaller than thought it could be. The toilet/bathroom area was nearly unusable as so small.

Great stay
Very clean, convenient and comfortable
It was a very good hotel and everything was clean and comfortable. Located in Chinatown, so it was easy to get around.

Nice, simple hotel with a history
Beautiful decor, friendly staff, strategic location
This hotel offers something that many other hotels don't: a story. Santa Grand Hotel Lai Chun Yuen is a converted traditional opera theatre and it capitalizes on this interesting part of its history on everything, from the decor, the room names, and just the overall concept of this budget friendly hotel. I took a single room, which was slightly bigger than a shoebox but that is typical of Singapore. I'm sure many would complain about the space but not me. I was just right despite my 6'2" frame. There are no windows in this room, which was fine since I arrived past midnight and had to leave the next day. This is the 2nd time I stayed here and the friendliness of the staff has been consistent. While the front office staff were professional and efficient, I absolutely adored the breakfast room staff, who treated us like their grandchildren. Yes, the food was basic (boiled egg, toast, sausages, and fruits) but, hey it gave me enough belly space to sample the restaurants around Chinatown. I've been to other, more expensive hotels with better breakfast and bigger rooms but I still think Hotel Lai Chun Yuen tops them in terms of stories to tell. Yes they serve better breakfasts but those look like every other breakfasts in every other hotel in the world. They don't have 2 uncles and an aunt who goes around to check if you had your coffee... And bids you "see you tomorrow" as you leave.

Compare to price, not bad but not impressive
center of China town, various restaurant to choose, near MRT
We don't like room without window, which we did not notice when making reservation. room really really small, but never mind! important thing is the smell from toilet, not god ventilation system. could not sleep well. We rated average, but we won't be back

Good location in midst of Chinatow, and good food
nearby food, chinese-decor and clean
overall enjoyable stay and nice clean hotel, except the best part of it (location and close to good food) is also the worst part of it (noisy environment and can be heard from room even past midnight).

Small rooms and hotel is very dark.
Location, food, internet
Ancient chinese design in red, a bit romantic but very dark through out the day. High speed internet, but the breakfast service is not very convenient. They kept asking me for breakfast ticket everyday. Can't they just remember my face?
