        Good enough!”

        Location, professionalism, comfort

        Ah Singapore! If you're not rich, your hotel choices are nothing like you would find in Europe and much less than you would find in the Americas (and likely elsewhere). What to do? Well, you essentially have two choices - a backpacker hostel or a "cheap" hotel. (A lot of these backpacker hostels are pretty nice btw but you share a room with a bunch of strangers). Aqueen is one of those "cheap" hotels - yes, that's "cheap" in Singapore. And that's where I think you see a number of reviews that are unhappy with the place. Out of the context of Singapore, this place is just too small. In the context of Singapore, it's a tremendous bargain. What you get is a microscopic room with about 6 inches of space on either side, an ensuite bath with 3' x 3', and that's about it. Even the "queen" room's bed is much smaller than what a queen room would be elsewhere. It's very hard to fit two average adults in it. Apart from that, the place is great! The staff is professional, the hotel is clean, there's an in-room safe, etc. There is no room service and limited concierge. The location is amid a million little places to eat and a stone's throw from a sizable shopping mall. There is an MRT station up over the hill sort of behind the hotel but it a little too far and too hot to walk if you ask me. Right out the door, however, buses stop to take you wherever you want to go, including the MRT station of your choice. Very convenient. The staff was always available to help me find out how to use the buses and tell me which ones to take. Another nice thing is that the road out front is plied by taxis and you can just wave one down in contrast to much of Singapore where you have to queue. I would easily stay here again if in Singapore.

        Thumbs Up! for Aqueen Balestier Hotel”

        My husband and I had our first anniversary and second honeymoon in Singapore and our stay at Aqueen Balestier Hotel is just great! Denifinitely CAN'T complain about anything. The hotel staff are very welcoming especially the lady named Emma. She is such a wonderful lady. The lobby and the hotel's ambience is very nice. We just loved our room at the 6th floor. The view from the window is very pleasant and the daily cleanliness of our room is just awesome! We enjoyed our stay and had a blast and will definitely stay again at this hotel if ever we have the chance to visit Singapore for the second time. One more thing is the location. It is a perfect spot for food and commute. Hawker centres are everywhere and the bus stop is just a few minutes away from the hotel. Can't beat that!

        1. Great location with access to public transport 2. Clean comfortable room and shower 3. Friendly and helpful staff

        I had a very enjoyable stay at Aqueen Hotel Balestier this time. It's proximity and ready access to public transport benefitted me as I did not rent a car and need to go to various places in Singapore for meetings. I was able to handle moving around without any issue. The hotel's room is small but very clean and comes with a nice shower. The bed is big and comfortable and service staff replenished the amenities daily. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful and very fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese. Good value for money!

        I stayed at the Aqueen Hotel Balestier in October 2012. The check in was ok, took around 10-12 m, and the staff were friendly and courteous. I booked a small single room as I had a 15 hour transit in Singapore. The bed was clean and comfortable and the room was new and well decorated. The bed side had the master light controls and it was easy to turn on/ off the lights. The room also had a window. The air con was working perfectly ok. The free internet was very fast and over all I liked the hotel. Its value for money. I will recommend this hotel to travelers on a budget! However, no breakfast was provided. You can easily get a cab outside the hotel. The drive from the hotel to changi airport cost me 16 SG Dollars. I will rate this hotel 4/5!

        New & cleanliness, friendly staff
        A bit too far from MRT, Hotel is rather small

        There are many good things about this hotel: newly renovated, cleanliness, and hotel staff hospitality. Also, Aqueen Balestier Hotel is surrounded by places to eat i.e. Boon Tong Kee – chicken rice. Only drawback is that it takes about 10 min by bus to the nearest MRT station. Overall, it worth money spent. I would consider staying at Aqueen Balestier if I come back to Singapore.

        A great budget hotel on Balestier, clean and comfortable, kind staff. Rooms are small but so is the price - and the smartly designed rooms more than make up for the small size as does the cleanliness and comfort. For an expensive city, the Aqueen offers a budget friendly alternative.

        The place looks better than it did in pictures. Internet was really fast and the room was really clean. The rule of strictly no smoking is really a plus point for me especially when many budget hotels claim to have non smoking floors but they still smell of smoke anyway. This hotel smells awesome. Aqueen is also pretty convenient, you can take 2 buses that reaches novena station in 6 stops (comes in every 10 minutes). I highly recommend this hotel especially if you are a solo traveller.

        Fresh, Comfortable and Quiet

        Unless you need a nicer cafe or bigger room to entertain guest, this hotel provides the best quality for the stay as compared to other similar hotels. Things i like:- 1) Clean and fresh from the lobby to the room; 2) Could leave luggage before or after check-in; 3) Receptionist is helpful and fast check-in and check-out; 4) Besides the basic room features, i truly enjoy the cozy window seat design that I could sit there comfortably watch TV for few hours, reading or enjoy city view while having a coffee; 5) A super delicious Singapore Chicken Rice restaurant is just 2 mins walk from the hotel; & 6) Quiet environment, like staying in residential apartment then hotel. Things don't bother me:- 1) Room is small but all amenities are well structured and layout in the room; & 2) Small table only suitable to work on one laptop (not comfortable if seriously need to work for more than 2 hours a day, I think) I have tried staying in other similar hotels (about the same rate) and they can’t bit Aqueen.

        Nice hotel and service with a smile”

        Cleanliness, Warm greetings

        I made a booking at Aqueen Hotel Balestier about few month prior to my arrival. Once We arrived at the Hotel the first impression is its cleanliness and warm greetings of the front desk officers. The scent of the front office area that We smell is so nice, it was relaxing and comfy. Overall, we were satisfied with the room, service, and ambience. I would go back to this hotel for my next visit to Singapore.

        compact room with everything you need”

        great surroundings, convinient room, high speed internet

        I love the location so much because the surrounding has so many popular local food,e.g boon tong kee, balestier food court, whampoa market (food court),bak kut teh, gui ling gao, etc. Just take 5 min walk to reach those delicacies. Bus stop is just a min walk from hotel, you can take bus 131 to novena mrt or 145 to toa payoh mrt. Since Aqueen is located at Balestier Rd, it's very easy to find taxi in front of hotel. Room size is quite small BUT you can find everything you need like chair, laptop table, tv, wardrobe, safety box, hanger, extra pillow cupboard, place for luggage or just bedside seat to enjoy window scenery and all basic amenities except refrigerator but it's not a big problem anyway. It is exactly a minimalist hotel room. Room wi-fi is no complain at all. Staffs are very helpful since they help me a lot when my S$1 coin stuck in the football game machine in the lobby area. Thank you Aqueen, i have a great stay here.

        Nice, clean rooms”

        This is quite a new hotel as it has only opened in 2009. I like the clean and neatly appointed rooms. The staff are very helpful and responsive.
        Wardrobe a bit small. The rooms facing Balestier Road can be a bit noisy. Not within walking distance to the nearest MRT but there are bus stops just outside the hotel

        I stayed at Aqueen Hotel because it's the newest budget hotel in the same area (other include Value Hotel Nice and Value Hotel Balestier). I stayed in a single room. While the size is not big it is adequate. I like the free Wi-Fi and they also provide complimentary bottled water. The price is very affordable but to compensate for that, the location is not that convenient. However, if you travel mainly by taxis and buses that shouldn't be a problem.

        Small room but clean.”

        Food all around and easy to find.
        Good service.

        The hotel is set on a good location, MRT station is quite far to walk, but you can catch up Bus to there, many lines infront of hotel available. Room is clean and comfortable, small does not a matter. I took only 2 nights for stay there, so next trip I shall return to AQUEEN Hotel Balestier again. Thanks

        Great value, bus stop within 50 metres, quick access to the city centre by public transport

        Singapore hotels are quite expensive. This AQueen hotel at Balestier Rd is really very good value for money.

        Value for money”

        Cozy, Warm and Friendly

        I was on a business trip to Singapore and decided to use AGODA for a survey on value for money accommodation around Balestier Road. Aqueen Hotel was high on the AGODA list on promotion and I decided to give it a try although the name doesn't sound familiar to me (unfamiliar too to the taxi driver who drove me from the airport). I did not explore/ utilise all the hotel services (e.g., the pub, etc) due to my tight business schedule during my stay. Overall, a good experience and would not mind going back to Aqueen if the value for money offer is given again.
