The New Cape Inn advertises itself as "quaint." That's an apt description for an older hotel that has been somewhat updated for guest comfort but still would retain a two-star rating. I spent a week here and the experience had its highs and lows. The A/C in my first room left me to sweat the first night, but when housekeeping realized the problem was the thermostat and not me I was quickly and cheerfully moved across the hall to a room with excellent A/C. Bathrooms are satisfactory as to size and appointments and there was never a problem with hot water--it was plentiful at all hours. The rooms are simple, modest and reasonably clean but not spotless. Hallway carpets show they've been around for quite awhile. The one housekeeper responsible for my room(s) was outstandingly courteous and worked hard to please, even replacing a couple of light bulbs herself instead of calling maintenance. Beds were firm but comfortable and bedding was clean. Housekeeping came by daily with fresh towels but changed sheets only when I asked, which for me was no problem at all. Rooms have a small refrigerator (nice!) and an electric kettle. Overall it was a comfortable stay (after that first night) and I'd gladly stay here again my next trip to Singapore. The location is near the city's metro system that can carry you just about anywhere you want to go, and is a short walk from a wide variety of eating houses and hawker stalls (the best food in Singapore are at the hawker stalls), and a comfortable walk from Chinatown. If you insist on spotless luxury with five stars this hotel will not satisfy, but if you want a place that's secure, quiet and comfortable at a reasonable price, the New Cape Inn will do nicely.
