“Very Small, Noisy and Bad Smell Blanket”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2011

I'm very unhappy with this hotel. The room too small but price not.
My room is no 05 05, blanket smell like cigarette, a towel stuck with somebody hair or ... (I can't imagine).

And very bad thing, the room can listen Outside Persons talk Clearly. so I can't sleep allnight.

Booking the hotel online is the best way, since you get a better rate and free internet. Mind you they do not have WiFi, internet is provided through a LAN cable.

Also the Hotel does not have any breakfast or room server, but they do provide coffee and tea and 1 water bottle for each guest. The rooms are a bit small but immaculately kept clean. Staff is welcoming and friendly.

Tons of pubs and eating joints throughout the Little India area.

Room Tip: The cheapest rooms have no windows.

We stayed there for two nights. The hotel is considered cheap for its location. There is convenience shop next door,MRT and food hawker center nearby. Anyway the receptionist we met was very unfriendly and not helpful.The room's toilet is very small, you would hardly to make a move. The most terrible experience was we couldn't get to sleep at night. It was too noisy even at the midnight, you can still heard people walking around, talking,moaning etc.The bed sheet was dirty, we felt very itchy sleeping onto the bed, it was really a nightmare. If you have better budget, please don't choose this hotel.

Our family room was a little small for 3 people but it was well decorated, the bathroom plush and modern and the nights sleep was relaxed and comfortable. The only issue is that its a good 25 mins walk to the closest MRT ( Metro train), so unless you dont mind the walk or are happy to pay for taxis you should look elsewhere.

If you are a book lover you will like this hotel, it is a just a few steps away from the National Library. Also, depending on your pace the hotel is about 2 minute walk to Bugis Junction and Bugis MRT. Beside the hotel is a 7-11 store where you can buy water, snacks etc. A bus stop is right in front of the hotel and you can also hail a cab from there.
The checking-in was quick and no fuss, but the lobby was small and it could easily get crowded if there is a group checking in. There were no chairs to sit while you are waiting for your turn at the reception and the hall way leading to the elevator was so narrow and might be a bit of challenge if you have lots of luggage.
As expected the room was so small but with large windows, if there’s two of staying in a room I suggest to get the Double bed instead of the twin. That way you get a little bit of leg room when getting out of bed. Taking a shower was a bit of a challenge since there was no bathroom curtains thus everything; the washbasin, the toilet seat were wet.
For its good location and its budget price, we’ll stay here again in the future.

This was the first hotel I ever stayed at in Singapore. It was pretty cheap I suppose at around $$120 Singapore per night. The only pros associated with this place is the location and the price. The cons can go on and on. First of all the room is tiny, I mean really really small. In the bathroom you could take a shower while sitting on the toilet. That is how spacious it is. Our room which was on the outside, didn't have 1 window, so it felt like I was in prison. No pool amenities, The TV and channel selection would make you think it was 1985. The breakfast does not impress. Very small restaurant and there is not one thing I could say about the breakfast that would be positive. It absolutely stunk.

To sum it up, if you are on a tight budget and have a short stay (2 nights less), consider this place. If not, then bypass this place. For another $40 per night you could stay down at the WWCA off Orchard Road which blows this place away.

Comparing price with other hotels this hotel is good. The location is the best for this hotel and then is the price. Room was small but clean. No breakfast and no Internet ( 10 $/ day). Staff friendly and helpful.
