    Great location and lovely hotel. One major issue is that the room temperature can only be controlled by reception which means you can only change it by going downstairs and asking.

  • 8.0.Very good

    A good stay

    The staffs are very nice and friendly. The receptionist speak both English and Malay very well. My concern about the toilet is gone as the toilet door is not absolute transparent as in the pictures. The glass was frosted so it is nice even though it can be quite small. The bed is comfortable too. Very little space but since we travel light so it was fine with us. The nearest MRT station is about 15mins walk (not very near to me). However there are lots of buses nearby. They also provide handy phone where I can bring it outside (Saved my roaming data a lot!) The only downside is that the room wall is very thin that you can hear the next room conversations very clearly. We had to speak very slowly not to disturb the neighbors. We didn’t even switch on the TV. If you are a light sleeper might be better if you have your earphones on.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Glad I found this hotel!! I was looking for a place in downtown to stay during the business trip and this hotel is within the budget. I booked a queen bed with window room. The room is very clean and cozy. It’s quite small but definitely enough for 1-2 people. The lady at the reception is friendly and helpful. I will have to go to Singapore very often and this place is definitely the first on my hotel list.

    Brand new, strange concepts....

    Very nice, brand new hotel but be aware when booking - some rooms have no windows!! Also, the bathrooms have no privacy in room, they are completely glass so recommend not to share a room unless you know the other person intimately!!

    Place is small but comfortable. Location is rather convenient. The room should have more hanging hooks in the room and bathroom. Overall, we are happy during our stay.
