If you want a stay very near to little india but away from the hustle and bustle there, this hotel can be an idle place to stay. Located at the quiet Jalan Besar, this hotel is a five minutes walk from Serangaoon road and Mustafa. Orchard Road, Bugis, China Town and Ferrar Park MRT station are all within 10 to 15 minutes walking distance. Bus stop is just next to the Hotel. Taxis are easily available in front of the hotel.
Our Room was reasonable in size considering Singapore, having enough space to keep the luggage and shopping bags etc. We opted for a road facing room with a window which is a bit costly than rooms without window or view. The view from the window is though limited to the rooftop of Mustafa, nearby buildings and Jalan Besar; still you can enjoy the variety of passing vehicles, specially at night. If you keep the glass window closed, your room becomes almost soundproof.
Though the hotel provided buffet breakfast but the menu was mediocre without any change on all 4 days of our stay. Above all, the staff was not so pleased when asked for second helping of Baked Beans or anyother items which was not available at the self service counter and had to be brought from the kitchen inside. There is no restaurant or room service in the hotel but there are plenty of Indian Restaurants at a stone's throw away. Tea/Coffee making facility with four free sachets everyday is provided in rooms.
Drinking water has to be brought from outside or you can use the tap water. The hotel does not provide drinking water.
The housekeeping was almost satisfactory with clean bedsheets and free toiletries which were changed everyday. Request for extra towels and pillows was met. Stil, the reception staff is not very welcoming and was reluctant to reply our some queries. This may be because the hotel remains almost ocuupied due to its location and no frill clean rooms. Although there is an elevator, You have to carry your baggage yourself to your rooms as there is no porter facility because they call it a budget hotel.
If you can manage without room service, carry your baggage from the road to your room on your own, eat the same variety of breakfast everyday, bring your own drinking water, this hotel can provide you with clean rooms and good sleep at price which are better compared to similar hotels nearby.
