Overall experience of stay is fine
Accessible, well maintained, affordable
Our stay in the hotel is fine. The hotel has near access to the train station, local dinnnings and shops. The room is quite small but its clean and well maintained.

Heritage Hotel
Centrally located, clean and excellent service
The Santa Grand Hotel Lai Chun Yeun is in a fantastic location in Chinatown. The Hotel was previously a Chinese Opera House. The bedroom and bathroom are very small so if you want space this is not the hotel for you. This property is excellent for a short stay. Although there is a small safe in the room the security level is low as the room itself, leading onto a verandah shared with other occupants does not have good locks.

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.

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
