Rating 4/5
Summary Good value for money

Well located for restaurants and quite close to a metro station (MRT). Rooms are small but clean and well appointed – a few English language TV channels, A/C, H&C water, kettle with tea and coffee, plus some free drinking water (although the tap water is safe to drink).

Note: This hotel is located in the Red Light district and rents some of the rooms on the lower floors by the hour. But don’t let this dissuade you. It isn’t a bad hotel or area – we stayed 8 nights and didn’t have a single problem with the location. We did have a room lock problem and a leaking A/C problem but on both occasions the hotel dealt with the problems quite quickly – they moved us to the next room along the corridor.

Relatively cheap for Singapore. Highly recommended.
