      Nice and clean hotel”

      Located in the East, it took us just a few MRT stations from the airport and 20mns walk to get to the hotel. Near the hotel, there is a direct bus line no. 33 to Clark quay and China town. Around the hotel, there are plenty of small good restaurants serving malay, chinese or vietnamese food. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful especially Ina and Ted. The first two days of our stay, we were awakened by the noisy neighbors who were talking very loudly in their room and in the corridor at 7 am! Also we were in a room on the last floor where the partition with another room by the bathroom does not seem to be well sealed as we could clearly hear the neighbors. Otherwise the room, although small, was very clean and good enough for our visit in Singapore.

      Reviewed June 18, 2019

      Dear YiMing, It is regrettable to learn of the disappointment of your stay. I'm sorry to hear that we were unable to fulfill your request for a double bed in your room. As our hotel runs on near full capacity regularly, it was highly likely that all available rooms with double beds had already been assigned out during the time of your check-in. As an alternative attempt to meet your request, twin beds were combined together to form a double bed. We are sorry that the firmness of the beds is not to your liking.

      unpleasant stays”

      this was our second stays at this hotel. it was a pleasant stays on our first time few months back that's why re-book the same hotel with same room type again this time. we booked a superior room with window but was given a small room without window and we were surprised that the room was not even clean yet! p/s we checked in around 8pm. when we get into the room the bed was messy with quilt unfolded. we then also noticed there's no window in the room. Went down again to inform the receptionist & they change another room to us with window. but we still find the room is smaller compared to our last stays - we suspect they downgrade our booking.

Your feedback is taken seriously, and has been submitted to the respective departments for their immediate follow-up. We do not follow the practice of downgrading the room types of our guests.

      Everything was okay except for the Male Night Staff at the lobby on the 10th of November. Me and my wife booked a room with one bed but to our surprised we were given a double single bed. I asked the male staff why and then he answered, room were based on the availability. And when i asked if there’s any staff who can help us to put the bed together, He replied that he was the only staff on duty and he cant help us.Whaaaaaatttttttttttt?! And even answered with sarcastic looks. Infairness the staffs the next morning upon check out were very friendly.

      A great budget hotel for a short stay in Singapore”

      The hotel room is really clean and adequately sized. The housekeeping team did a great job maintaining the cleanliness throughout my stay. Much appreciated. There are tons of eateries for people to eat around the area if you ever go hungry. The hotel is a little far from public transport and the shopping malls, hence I had to walk a little or took a grab during my lazy day. Overall, it was pleasant and I would definitely recommend it to people that are looking for an affordable and comfortable stay in Singapore

      Our 2nd time in Singapore and we stayed here as opposed to right in the centre, for how much cheaper it made it we don't regret the decision, the room was nice and the lack of window would have bothered me but we knew we were gonna be out all day. Clean and comfortable, some good food options nearby and it's nice to see a slightly different side to Singapore than huge hotels.

We were surprised to learn that the Front Office did not receive any complainst from you regarding the missing money during the whole duration of your stay. As this is a serious allegation, the manager would have conducted an investigation immediately if he had been informed of the matter, and assisted to escalate the matter to the police had there been any reason to suspect misconduct.
