I stayed there 22/4/2017. Thank God it was only one night. Toilet seat was broken. My son had to fix it. There were ants both in the mugs as well as toilet bowl. Disgusting. The bedspread was not changed. Luckily i brought my own bed spread. And the breakfast was terrible. Bad experience.

Booked via booking.com which states that wifi is available at all locations within hotel. Unfortunately, wifi is only at lobby. Room was pretty shabby, no fridge no safe in room. Credit card machine unavailble and had to draw from nearby ATM before we are issued with the key. But front desk personnel are very friendly.

Check in process took almost 50 min with 2 couples in-front of me. Room is spacious but everything else in the room is badly maintain. Poor wifi signal as they claim it is only work in the lobby (provided there wasn't too many customers logging in)

We gambled to take a trip down to Universal Studios Singapore recently and had a last minute booking at this hotel. Location is absolutely ideal just a 5 mins walk to JB Sentral.

Went for 2 days 1 night trip to JB. Actually we tried to avoid this hotel at the first place. However, we didn't have a choice. Basement Carpark & Surau - Scary entrance and quiet dark at night. Very smelly because their garbage waste area is in the car park. Smell like somebody pee. Lobby - Very not organised. Reservation...
