I always stay at the Queen Resident since 2011 because of its excellent location next to Outram MRT station. Accross the road there is the Peal Center where you can shop and eat. Chinatown is just a short walk. The rooms at Queen Resident are very spartan - Single room offers a small bed with thin and tired linen, one pillow, a steel cabinet, a table and electric fan. Inside the steel cabinet you will find a couple of hangers and a bath towel. Also a small trash bin.That's all you can expect to see inside the room. Since the toilet and bathroom are shared, the cleanliness depends heavily on the last user. If you are lucky you will find it clean, otherwise, you have to check the toilets and bathroom at the other floors.
Booking a room here entitles you to a free entrance to the sauna and steam room. You can also use the swimming pool, and internet facilities. There are guys offering massage for a price. They are mostly Chinese and Indonesians.
Considering the expensive cost of hotel rooms in Singapore, I believe Queen Resident is a good option for people who do not wish to splurge on accommodation. As a tourist, I only need a bed at the end of the day. And the time I spend inside the hotel room ranges between 5-7 hours. The price you pay here is just a fraction of the cost in other hotels. I will still opt to stay here for economy, privacy and security rather than pay a dormbed and share the room with strangers. If you know what to expect for the modest price you paid you will never get disappointed.
