“Decent Hotel”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

My family and I stayed here for 12 nights and found it to be more than adequate. The room size was good and it was clean and fresh smelling. The service from the staff was very good and the front office staff in particular were extremely helpful and informative especially when we pestered them for information we could have found with better online research!

Location wise it's pretty good too. It's only 10 minutes walk from Novena Shopping Centre and MRT and about 15 minutes walk from the Newton Hawker Centre.

A standard quality good hotel located in a pleasant street a short walk (in the heat) to Novena MRT Station and shopping centre. Stayed there on a Singapore Airlines stopover package. Bus stop at hotel entrance, but could not get information about fares and destinations from reception. Good rooms and breakfast acceptable. Late check out was readily given at no extra cost.

This hotel is well placed, near newton and septima station, and most important, near a really touristic and nice area that is the newton hawker centre (food) and near orchad road.

The hotel doesn't have much to highlight, quite normal, with big beds, big bedrooms, a bit old fashion and normal stuff (although sometimes we couldn't understand each other).

The breakfast is ok, although the staff there is quite nice though....

The most annoying thing of the hotel is the club downstaris that seems a typical singaporean 'karaoke' where business mans meet some 'local' chicks... although that's mainly the impresion that I received.

Well communicated and cheap fares by cab from the centre.

Recommended if you haven't got a family and don't plan to spend much time on it.

This hotel was provided by a travel agent as a stop over. Three rooms were used for one night stay, and while I did not see the others, our was a grand suite. Beautiful bed which we never used,as we wanted a city tour instead of sleep. Clean bath with deep tub and also shower. Good food, lavish breakfast. I have no idea the price, and can't comment on sleep quality. But what a beautiful city!

My husband and I stayed here in a "deluxe" room for 2 nights in nov 11. Rooms and corridor were smelly (a lovely mix of mould and urine) and rooms were dirty, staff were slow and not friendly nor helpful. Bathrooms were just disgusting! I would not stay here again, not sure how they get four star rating?

The hotel is very run down and not what appears in the photo's. The majority of the guests are large tour groups. It is not walking distance to anything and no suitable eating places near by. The bedroom was not clean, with the sheets needing replacing about 10 years ago.We were woken on the first morning to major construction work happening on Level 16 which they did not tell us about. I think you could get better value for money staying near the Singapore River. Would not recommend.
