    The room type that I slept. I know that it’s a single occupancy but at least it should have a CHAIR to sit instead of sitting on a bed all the time and some hook to hang a clothes. That will be perfect.

    Great Location , Just good as its price”

    I had quite late at night flight from Changi airport , but the staff was so friendly and kind. They gave me high floor room Right in front of the street, but there are Chinese Cuisine in front of the hotel which makes noise until 3 a.m. You can heard a laughing and screaming noise though the windows. The 2nd night i came back to hotel around 10 p.m. and the bed room sheet was damp and some part wet. I don’t know what happened, but it’s fine for us. The Location and overall was great, so i don’t mind. They didn’t provide any comb or hairbrush, make sure you bring it with you. Even 7-11 dont have hair brush.

    found the room stuffy as no windows and wouldn't have liked to be in a smaller room. Bed very soft. Ours was the executive room for our 6 day stay. Besides this the location and staff could not have been better. great restaraunts, markets and train station 1 min walk away. If you stay here make sure you go to the chinatown complex market. cheapest food and drink you will find in singapore. will stay there again for location

    Excellent Location and Value ”

    Blocks away from hawker stalls in Chinatown, same distance from Chinatown Centre Point Mall in the other direction, both locations with MRT entrance. Taxi stand in front, 7-Eleven around the corner, bar and restaurant lined streets. Because it's an older building, windows let in a lot of street noise, trash collection and street sweeping starts at 5:00 am, was surprised at first, but got accustomed to it.

    Perfect place for a layover or short business trip”

    We booked this hotel as it was very central and convenient for some business meetings in the CBD whilst on a deliberate layover. My wife and baby stayed inside the hotel to rest whilst I went out. Upon my return, my wife commented that she wouldn’t mind staying again if I’m a 2-3 day business trip as, despite the intentionally small rooms, it’s clean, well designed & decorated and very comfortable.

    Great service, location and good rooms”

    I booked a single room which comes with a window facing the street. As I had requested for a quiet room, upon check in, they propose a windowless room instead to avoid having street noise. I took up their offer. Most people are afraid windowless rooms will smell musky. I didnt experience it here though. Noise from neighbours talking in the hallway and closing/shutting doors is inevitable. Being a short stay and travelling with just a backpack the space in the small room was adequate.

    Just right.”

    For those solo traveler who seeks for privacy in one bed small room, this is a great option. Room theme is decorated with Chinese accent and blue porcelain lamp, pretty classy! It is located in a very strategic place in Chinatown. On foot, you can reach some shopping centres, food court, MRT station, Duxton park (with fun mural!), Ann Siang Hill, and neighbourhood of old Oriental building. Hot water, TV, refridge and lamps were functioning, AC was a bit struggling cooling off the room temperature thou. If you are okay in pragmatic and small space, this place won't be a problem. I was having a 21' suitcase and space was enough to open this in my room's path. However, one thing that surprised me; is when neighbour restaurant is cooking, the frying smell was pretty strong to my room that has window to sideway.

    Very conveniently located in Chinatown with very good access to the MRT. The room (superior queen) was perfectly fine for a solo traveller, though I feel it would have been a tight fit with two people. Pay attention if you want a window room, because not all rooms have one! Reception staff were very accommodating and friendly when I requested a room change. I would generally recommended a stay here!

    Overall Stay Experience”

    Being a local, I am fully aware the location of this hotel. Not really fantastic but it is within the chinatown and inside one of the lane people will generally walk past. Checked in for a night. The receptionist upon check in do not really have good attitude. “That sort of cannot ask more question”. Just register, take your keycard and go off. Second day is the frustrated part. Towel in room is already wet. By norm practice is to call down reception for request which we all know. Since I heard the housekeeping is just outside my room, I opened door and asked the housekeeper for 1. He (Chinese by Nationality) turned and look at me with his poker face and replied in his flowery mandarin saying, you want, call downstairs and ask for it. That expression indirectly telling you a NO! I won’t give you one no matter what you say, explain, beg or ask for. Honestly speaking, such request is widely seen from time to time in many many other hotels. Housekeeper would usually provide given they are just outside the guest room and not much of any hassles. I asked in a nice and polite manner. The strict No really puts me off entirely. When called down to their reception, a guy by named of Jordon if I didn’t remember wrongly replied me in a very unhelpful and rather rude manner. It further spoil my impression of this hotel. I must believe their management does allow their staff to behave and reply their guest in such manner. Sadly. Besides, their standard room type is definitely comfortable enough for 1 person stay. The only thing concern me is their bathroom lighting. It is certainly too dum should you want to do some peeling, squeezing of your pimples or even shaving. Cannot see anything much except the overall shape of your face...

We stayed 3 nites, at 1st and 2nd nite the fan in the bathroom is off (broken) we didnt complain, but the 3rd nite suddenly the fan is on and we hav no idea how to make it off, no button no nothing, we turn off bathroom light but the fan was still on. so the very last nite we slept with the fan on, so noisy.
