      Air condition broke down, dirty toilet, and leakage faucet”

      The air condition in room worked long time to be cool in first night. In second night i entered the room at 2 a.m. and thought that it would be better but not at all. I slept due to tired and woke up with sweat 2 hours later but no staff at that time. So I paid air conditioning room price but got price of fan room. Very disappointed because hotel should check room before gave keys to client. In the morning I told the staff that my room was not cool. They said why I don't tell them at 2 a.m. but I thought that it would be cooler then as same as first night but after 2 hours later it was not cool at all and there was no staff at that time. Everything in room is very old with leakage faucet.

      The location is great, easy to find food, near MRT station. But the staff was not very help full at all, and the room condition is not good. The towels are so old and not so white with holes here and there. THe wall is moldy (i think it's moldy).

      Worst hotel ever....”

      Worst hotel ever the staff there was rude and they don't know how to talk to the customer. They don't have a room bigger then 8m² and on Agoda they have written that they will give you a 20m² room. Rooms were super dirty and unhygienic. They don't a facility to keep your bag after check out. They don't have lift and you have to carry your luggage on your on till 3rd floor as all there rooms are starting from 3rd floor. They don't have room service you have to go to reception for each and everything. Beds and pillows are like you sitting on a toilet pot. They don't clean your room till the time you ask them. My experience in this hotel was the worst, I shifted on first day in the another hotel as I wasn't able to adjust there.

      GROSS. ”

      The room is very dirty. The bathroom had molds, drain flies and bits of hair from previous occupants. The headboard is itchy and smells. Ive messaged Agoda about this but they refused to hold the property accountable. Moved out not an hour after we arrived. Really gross. If I could add pictures here, you'd see how gross the room is.

      Travelling Couple”

      Value for money because you can have your own place privately considering its Singapore wherein accomodation is expensive. Location is walking distance to Jalan Besar MRT station which is a 2-3 minute walk which is also convenient for traveller. Bus station is right across the street. Hawker food stalls are also around. The room where we stay is clean with basic facilities like a/c, hot and cold shower, tv with just local channel and wifi with very good internet speed. Not for very picky guest. Comfort room is small, but for me its just right. Faucet is leaking but it will not harm you. Staff is very accomodating. They have complimentary bottled water and coffee sachet which you need to collect in the front desk everyday. They have hair blower and electric kettle in the room. If you want your room to be cleaned, you need to request it everyday in the front desk or they will not clean it. Over all recommended hotel.

      Reasonable Price & Good Location”

      The room we stayed was good, not so spacious but for Singapore that's what you would get for a budget room. The hotel placed near Rochor MRT around 700m from the hotel to the MRT. There're also some local food courts near by, the price is good, not too expensive.

      Checked in then checked out!”

      We booked for one night then booked a second night for convenience. The window was broken but they couldn’t fix it. The room overlooked a very busy noisy street in Little India so it was ver noisy. We eventually got another room in a lower floor. The window was also broken! But this room was even worse. There was plaster missing from the wall. The bathroom was leaking all over the floor. It was dirty and smelly. We didn’t even want to sit on the bed as it had ‘yellow’ stains on it. It felt like a sweat shop or prison. The reception attendant was disinterested. He just said “no refund!) We don’t mind there not being a lift. It was late. We’d just come off an international flight and were tired. We went to the hotel next door, the hotel ‘81’. We booked for the 2 nights and ran for the hills! (Well to hotel 81 really!) We always use agoda but I think they should remove this hotel from their listings.

      WATER ALWAYS STAGNANT AT THE DOOR OF THE BATHROOM”

      The bathroom was about 9 inches higher than the floor level of the guest room and the frame of the door was made of by thin Aluminium which acts as a sharp knife. To drain the water in the bath room proper slope has not been provided , as a result water always stagnant just the place where to put step to go in and go out of the bath room which is nothing but very very dangerous.

      BAD HOTEL! REALLY BAD!! DON'T STAY IN HERE”

      I'm very dissapointed about this hotel. i would'nt recommended this hotel to all of you guys around the world, i already told the hotel will be late check in around 2-3AM, but in fact i reacu thw hotel around 4AM (because i'm take a bus from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore). And when we arrived at the hotel, there's no staff standby for check in. And knock2 on the desk, and there's a man coming from his sleep, and he ask me 10SGD to let me check in to the hotel, or we will stay in the lobby (actually only stairs) until receptionist open at 8AM. This sound ridiculous, so i'm yelling at him to let me in and check in.. i'm already paid, and i've rights to do it! Really2 bad experience, the room also very tiny and very small. This is not the hotel for the human..

      Bad hotel and impolite customer service.”

      This is a second time I visited the hotel. The hotel had changed its name from "Grand U Hotel" to "Meriton Hotel." I visited this hotel on December, 31, 2018 but getting bad experiences here. I arrived on 01.12 PM but two receptionist, one was a girl and the other was a boy (but looks like a Shemale ) did not permitted me to check in, they said that based on their hotel rules, guest could only check in on 02.00 pm. The statement was acceptable but their communication was impolite and less-cultured, they spoke in Chinese and asked for me to place my luggage on a dirty place until 02.00 pm. When checking in, they also asked for me to carry my luggage and drinking water until second floor, the shemale said that they could not help me to carry it because there was not such a service in their hotel. When entering my room, I saw many problem inside it, the lamp on toilet was broken, stain and bugs on bed, the television also broken and the floor in the room was very dirty.

It was very ridiculous that there was such a hotel like this and located in Singapore. I will never visit this hotel again although it gives me free of charge. Bad hotel, impolite customer service and look like a "shipwreck."

      Terrible experience”

      My parents was given a room in level 4, even though I have requested room located in a higher level, but I was expected there is a lift service, however, there is no lift available. so my parents have to climb up with their heavy laugage. What make me disappointed the most is the leaking ceiling... My parents were the middle of the night and reliase the ceiling is leaking. Then I decided to relocate my parents and brought them to another hotel. I was wonder, why the staff is not aware the room ceiling is leaking? even though this is a budget hotel, but is this the right service they should have??? if there is a negative score, i would have given a negative 100000 rate.
