We spent two nights and three days in Singapore. The hotel was conveniently located close to the Tibetian Buddhist temple. It was close to the Lavender metro station. There were several foodcourts (hawker's centres) on the way to the metro station. The hotel quality was not above our expectations as we had a limited budget. Singapore is more expensive than...

Dear Chloecarbutt, we are sorry to hear of your experience. We do have different types of rooms available in our hotel, e.g. our Theme Room, which comes with a balcony where it opens up to a nice area. We do regret that maybe the Superior Room booked can seem small when taking into consideration your luggages/ pram and the staff... More

+ nice and clean rooms + friendly staff + good wifi connection + subway nearby - aircon could only be controlled by the reception Good hotel for a good price. If you are looking for a clean private room that is rather cheap, this might be the place for you

It was S$ 109. The room was tiny and so were the beds but it was clean. Bathroom was ok but they provide toothbrushes and soap. One problem was that you couldn't oöen the windows. Service was ok. Location is good.

The pale blue exterior of this hotel and the tiny box of a room with harsh lighting should have been a warning about the next 3 nights trying to sleep in this walk-in chiller of a hostel. For some bizarre reason the wall mounted controls for the air conditioning are non functional, and so to adjust the ac you need... More

I stayed in this hotel because it was near the MRT stations and shopping. The room was ok and the staff excellent. I walked to Little India and found lots of trinkets to bring home. The food was also proved right. The hotel is in a very good location.
