Tiny room, but very close to MRT
1. Close to MRT. 2. Close to Chinatown Food court. 3. private room
It's under refurbishment, some smell inside... The bathroom is very small, water leak to the room... But in general, it's nice that the room and bed quite clean, and new toothbrush , bottled water will be provided everyday

Feedback on the Santa Grand Hotel Lai Chun Yuen
Great location, clean and value for money
I was a bit disappointed by the porter service staff and one of the receptionist during my check in at 10am on 29 Dec 2014. I already put on request that i will arrive early and already reserved one room for my mum as she is old and not convenient to climb the stair. To my great astonishment, I was asked to wait till 2pm as my room was not ready and the special room that I reserved was assigned to other people. The way this male receptionist served me and responded to my queries left much to be desired. Worst scenario happened when I asked the porter who is a bit old as well if there is any escalator to go down and exit to this hotel, he answered in a very reluctant manner. When I asked him if he could assist my mum to walk down the escalator by showing us how to use the machine, he told me that by the time we switched on the machine, my mum could have walked down the stairs! i found him very rude and unfriendly. I said this hotel is not very handicapped and old folks friendly, as there are those stupid stairs to come in or go out the hotel. He asked me to feedback to the hotel management but he doubted they will do anything since this is a heritage hotel! He told me in a rude tone. Now, I wanna know, if this is really a heritage building, why there is an escalator all the way up to the hotel room but not from the entrance to the receptionist? In my booking, I asked for a old folk friendly room why the receptionist didnt give me a room in the other branch opposite this hotel which is more old folk friendly? The receptionist told me that all the single rooms in the Santa Grand Chinatown were fully booked and full stop. .

Santa Grand Hotel Lai Chun Yuen
cheap, location, clean
As a frequent visitor to Singapore, I have stayed at this hotel many times. The rooms are small (no, tiny in fact) but location is good, staff efficient, the hotel clean, and the price is very reasonable for Singapore. You soon get used to showering whilst sitting on the toilet :) Being in the middle of Chinatown, its not quiet at the best of times. I don't appreciate finding out about this when checking in, rather than when booking. They said the banging would stop at 5pm, but the noise went on till after 6 on the day I check in. Somehow the noise from the traders outside - the sounds of everyday life. And of course, if arriving from far away climes you might actually want to get some sleep during the daytime....so be warned! I will go back again.

Very Good Location
Location, Reception and all staffs
It will be better if bathroom is able to separate wet and dry zone and add more light in the room.
