“A truly horrible hotel”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

This sleazy hotel has paper thin door so you really can hear every detail of sex-noises from the other rooms.
Trying not to thing about what happened in the bed you're in, but since the mattress is covered in plastic for a reason it's hard not to.

The room has no windows. For an extra 10$ you get "internet". Totally unusable, took over 5 minutes to load gmail.

After a horrible nights sleep, the paper thin doors allows you to enjoy the cleaning crews radion on full volume.

My relatives came over to sg. Book 2 room onsite for a night stay. Price is damn exp at S$16x++.Room is very dirty. Bedsheet with stains. Reach at the hotel, had been serve by attitude problem reception. Forbid me from going up to my relatives. Even give me only 5 mins to get back downstair. Was thinking of extending for another night, we book another 2 room 4 star hotel near the SOTA @ S$17x+. Even much better.

I can't say a single nice thing about this horrible place, except that the location is pretty good. It's not clean--found long black hairs in the shower/toilet. The staff are nasty and they seem to have some of the few in Singapore who are English-challenged. The hotel chain itself is crummy--made a complaint that was never even responded to. Staying in a room without windows is like being in a tomb. If I could give it minus-5 stars I would. This place stinks. And it's far from cheap. The bed is covered in a single sheet sitting on top of a rubber mattress cover that makes the bed intolerable: do they think you are going to wet yourself? I was told by a cab driver this place is used for "quickies." Can't say I saw any evidence of that, but it is a repulsive hotel.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere.

I paid Expedia £365 for four nights for a standard room at this ghastly hotel. What they don't tell you on the Expedia website is that all their standard rooms have no windows, therefore the light and noisy air conditioning, which you cannot adjust, are on all the time. Only the deluxe rooms have windows! Nor do they make it clear that the bathroom is in fact a wet room with the shower close to the toilet!. At least the sink was big.
There was no wardrobe or chest of drawers, just four coat hooks, so it was pointless unpacking. The room accommodated a double bed but otherwise there was not enough room to swing the proverbial cat.The flat screen TV was not aligned with the bed but stuck right in the corner. Their was no table or desk, except for a small bedside table with coffee and tea making facilities. There was not even a chair - a pouffe was the substitute.
The saving grace was that the room was clean
Grossly overpriced, even for Singapore, If anything, you were paying for location, as it is faily central with Raffles Hotel around the corner.

I stayed in this hotel for 3days as i have to attend meeting at SUNTEC. I paid SG138 per night. The hotel staffs are not friendly..i guess they dont bother to talk to you also as this hotel is like: "mind your own business" hotels. When i checked in, i saw many girls with old mens at the lobby, when i went out for meeting and when i came back, same sighting. At one point i thought i was at a brothel. However, as i mentioned..this is "mind your own business" hotel. So, i mind my own business...but sometimes i got a funny glance from the old men..this is the part which i dont really like about at this hotel. Room was okay and tv is a flat screen. This is a very small room..toilet and shower are not separated. Food wise, not many choices..but it has a 7th eleven next door which is very near. But this hotel is near to SUNTEC..just a 10minutes walking distance. Will i stay this hotel again? I wont unless i have a business meeting at SUNTEC only! .

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.
