Hotel is located on Geylang road. Its close to food courts, 7/11 store and the bus stop. Commuting to tourist attractions is very easy. Nearby malls are One Km(300 metres), city plaza(400 metres), Rooms are decent as compared to small ones being offered in other hotels of same price.

This is a decent hotel for the price, though it needs some updating. It's clean and they provide drinking water and tea/coffee. There is a small swimming pool also. There are loads of food options nearby, as well as a supermarket, mini-markets, and an ATM is right outside the hotel. They offer pamphlets of information of things to do while...

Clean hotel with super large rooms and a large clean outdoor pool. Only four floors. A bit noisy and there are wooden floors and large gaps under the door, but on the whole a good cheap place to stay before flying out. $20 taxi to airport. Great choice for food just next door. Something for all palettes. Good shopping. Really...

Neighbourhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighbourhood is packed with colourful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
