Nice Location & Approachable Staff
It's a good and affordable location considering the place is in Clarke Quay. The hotel staff were very accommodating. Our check-in time is at 2pm but we were able to leave our bags early in the morning at 7am. The staff/owner also helped me when I had a problem with my shoes when it got wet. I emailed in advance regarding our travel date and the staff gave us informative instructions on how to get to the inn. I recommend River City Inn for your stay in Singapore. Though be prepared because it's located on the 4th floor of a building without a lift plus it's around 10minutes walk from Lavender MRT station.
