    Best place within the neighbourhood!”

    If your looking for room around the old Balestier/Kim keat area, look no further! The room is quite spacious compared to some other hotels in the same area, WITH washing machine (an actual good one!), microwave, a large fridge and mini kitchen & tools. Super convenient. The location is good, you can reach almost everywhere from here, 7&11 is across the street, bus just a few steps away, easy access parking and taxi drop off. There are many night restaurants nearby, foodcourts and popular foodies/attractions are within 2-3km at most. There is a small gym room inside the building, a great & affordable place in short The staff is friendly and helpful ^^ Definitely will come back 👌🏻

    An absolute gem!”

    We stayed here for 10 nights and we could not have been better looked after. The staff, particularly Abby, were super friendly and always happy to help. It’s centrally located, and feels more local / authentic than the hotel chains. And as if you needed more reasons to stay here, it adjoins the most gorgeous cafe / co-working space with superb coffee.
