Location is great, rooms spacious, Internet @ SGD 3 a day! Great budget hotel for a traveller. Quite a big pool to relax at the end of the day. Very basic & simple breakfast. Quite strict with checkin & check out time, but can leave luggage to pick later ...

We've been vacationing in Singapore for over a decade, and at last found a great place to stay. Huge rooms (27 sq meters where as downtown the same priced room is only 9 !), a staff you can talk to and who did there jobs with pleasure and utter quietness at night. Situated in a upscale neighborhood on a tiny street with no through traffic, it's like you are in a cocoon of peacefulness and stability. A well established inn (since 1973, with many remodels, and now complete) run by a real innkeeper, Mr.Tan, who has designed his lodgings for his guests to like, not just endure. It feels like the sort of inns who visited in a different time, when people cared if you came back!
Yes: you do have to take a cab to get to the "sights", but they are cheap and if you are young, the MRT is 10 minutes away by foot.
Yes: there are a handful of restaurants ranging from the cheap and good to the fabulous and expensive, all 5 minutes away on foot, and a upscale grocers just down the way.
A great pool with built-in jets to ease those aching muscles from walking all over Little India, too.

All of this for the least than the cost of the windowless cubicles downtown.
AND...no hidden costs or tricky fine print.

We will never stay anywhere else but the VIP.

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool, Handicap friendly, too.

We stayed at this hotel for 2nights while visiting Universal Studios. We found that it was only some 7 minutes from the nearest MRT station and the Newton food market. The rooms were nothing special, clean and big in size. It worked for us as all we wanted was some where comfortable and quite. The breakfeast was simple, with the same menu each day. We also found the staff to be friendly and always willing to assist.

VIP was a disappointment as it is not centrally located though around 20 mins from orchard rd. The breakfast served was unappetizing and rationed as if famine prevailed in Singapore. The card key of the room didn't function properly and one night a whole wing of the hotel was suddenly plunged into darkness as there was a short circuit somewhere in that wing. We had to leave the door open and when we inquired at the reception ,the male staff there was very rude . They did not even provide us with a candle or torch and we had to wait in the corridor for a few hours . Did not feel safe in the hotel and will never go back there. Can't pay money to see grumpy and cold faces of a hotel staff . A welcoming smile from the staff is not a financial investment from management . Fortunately stayed only 2 days there.
