            Can't control thermostatThe hotels proximity to bugis junction and mrt is definitely a plus. Interiors were great. Our only gripe was that we cannot control the temperature of our room. You have to call reception and tell them to adjust it, which can get quite annoying and inconvenient. Also note that the hotel charges $100 security deposit upon check in, which you can subsequently get upon checkout. Overall it was okay, wouldve been great if you can control the aircon inside your room.

            Comfortable stay ”

            My first time to visit SG and I loved it! Populous Hotel is a good place to say in SG. It’s close to everything and comfortable! Bugis station is about less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel and a bus stop is just in front of the hotel too! Public transport is very easy and you can also use GRAB or taxi’s if you’re in a hurry! Didn’t have breakfast in the hotel but Bugis Junction and Suntec city is very close to the hotel and there’s so much variety of food around! There is 7-11 and an orange juice vending machine close to the hotel that you must try! And yes!! It is sweet and cheap! It only cost $2 SGD. Me and my partner had it everyday. The rooms was tiny but comfortable to move around. Housekeeping clean the room every day and changed our towels which is very good. Sound proofing of the room was not great at all. You can hear people talking from the outside and on the next room. Other than that, populous hotel Is a very good place to stay and will definitely comeback.

            A little gem ”

            Pros: For the price range, the hotel is very clean and the check in was a Breeze. The location was also about 5-10 mins walk to Bugis mrt and 5 mins walk to various eateries which open to midnight. Toilet was Super spacious, comfy bed, and the hair dryer was also very good. Cons: Not very sound proof, especially you can hear each time other room closes their door, this is also due to the fact that door must be pull hard to close. Aircon is centralised hence you need to inform front desk if you wanna adjust the aircon.

            Good location, clean room. ”

            The hotel room’s size is adequate and very clean, including the bathroom. Free wifi. Location is a few minutes walk from Suntec and Bugis which is a plus. The female staff is friendly, very helpful and responds fast to our request. Thank you!! The male staff is alright, but did not provide us details including the wifi part and forgot about our deposit when we checked out till we reminded him. Downside would be the soundproofing for the place; I can hear people walking pass/talking outside my room. Closing of doors from other nearby rooms can be heard very clearly. Overall a pleasant hotel, thanks for the stay!

            Overall a okay stay. Was given two single beds even though I booked a queen one. Hotel was very noisy, we could hear it at night that people close the door very loudly and we could even hear our neighbours snoring so loudly. Room is beautiful. Other that the above mentioned.

            We need to call the reception when we need to adjust the temperature of aircond. Poor soundproof ”

            I wonder why we can’t control the aircon temperature, fans, and etc. By ourself. The control that’s in the room is just a showcase. For every room, if we need to adjust the temperature we need to make a call to reception, but after I call, they didn’t adjust for me, I need to call many time. And the time I enter my room after check in, the room is not done yet. There is lack of cup, remote control, and they didn’t refill the teabag for me. And the floor in the room was very dirty. I stay for 2 nights, we didn’t exchange our bedsheet! The bedsheet is dirty when I check in. And I was sleep on the dirty bedsheet for 3 days! Too much thing need to improve.

            I’m here for business trip but my husband also come along. For location and value this hotel really recommended. But for cleanliness, the first day i’m here they don’t clean my room cos they said “i’m not in the room” so weird, you have to clean your guest room when we are leaving so when we come back our room already clean. Also when asking for towels it took the staff so long. But despite that, I can get early check in at 8 in the morning. But I’m pretty sure this hotel will going big soon. keep improving!

            Understandable that the room will be small, but it's so small that if you have 2 large luggage, there is no room to open them. Further the walls between each room are so thin that we can hear the person staying next door snoring/talking etc. The front desk staff are friendly.

            Above average”

            Checked in ard 12 midnight plus, the receptionist lady asked to hold deposit and we didnt have enough case nor credit card so told her she can remove any important item so that we do not need to hold deposit. Only then her voice tone changed and she said she need to check the room before we check out. It was kind of hilarious but i said okay. Also she gave two single when we are couple. I tried to call and ask if there are any queen bed, she replied NO in a very rude tone and when i told her we wont be able to sleep here because it is two single, she still replied “why is that so” in very awful manner. The room floor was dirty and toilet door was creaks when we try to open it. Overall everything was fine except the receptionist attitude was horrible.

            Dear Minjung, Greetings from Populous Hotel! We thank you for staying with us and deeply apologized for the problems encountered during your check-in process. Understand that as couple, you would have preferred for a Large Bed, unfortunately with regards to Guests' bed preference, the hotel would not be able to guarantee on your bed preference as it is subject to availability upon arrival. The hotel was in its high occupancy during your stay period. However, we are disappointed in hearing about how our staff had handled your check-in and will educate the staff who had processed your check-in. We will ensure that the Housekeeping Team maintains the standard of cleanliness in the room as well. Once again, we thank you for staying with us, and we look forward to another chance to serve you. Thank you. Yours Sincerely Sandi Lim Assistant Manager
