“Comfortable, secure, economical rooms in an expensive city.”
Reviewed 3 November 2011

The New Cape Inn advertises itself as "quaint." That's an apt description for an older hotel that has been somewhat updated for guest comfort but still would retain a two-star rating. I spent a week here and the experience had its highs and lows.

Rooms have a small refrigerator (nice!) and an electric kettle. Overall it was a comfortable stay (after that first night) and I'd gladly stay here again my next trip to Singapore.
