Mohsein S. Solo travelers Singapore, August 24, 2014
In Need of An Upgrade

It was a good stay, location was great, central and right next door to major malls and a bus terminal, but the hotel is in need of some major upgrades. Looks (and feels) like a hotel from the 80s. Comfortable rooms. Staff gave excellent and friendly service, as to be expected. Bathroom toilet needs a bidet, though.

Location, Breakfast, Check-out
The trip made my objective. The hotel room is old and smelt with fungus.
Jo P. Families with older children United Kingdom, August 19, 2014
the club lounge is great

club lounge, location, staff
The Club Lounge made this terrific value as the queue for the main dining room for breakfast was snaking into the lobby. Staff were super.
