    Except for the food, with the same food every morning for breakfast!! so we eat the same menu for 4 days!! no enough space for the guest to relax at the lobby with limited chairs that could accomodate 2 to 3 guests only.

  • Family with children

    Friendly staff; comfortable; easy to get to sights; quiet rooms.

    Center of the city and 7 mins to Dhoby Gout mrt. Near by food-court & 7-Eleven.

    Poor breakfast items & location. No duvets and uncomfortable mattress.

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Beds were comfortable

    The food was not great and also rude staff members except for the housekeeping lady. Check out time should be considered if the flaight departure time is late

    There is an air-conditioned 24 hours food court just 5 minutes walk away from the hotel. It serves very good local food. Opposite the hotel there is 7-eleven convinient store too.

    The hotel staffs are not friendly and lack of proper greeting. I have requested for an early chech-in if possible but the hotel was not helpful to provide this service or any alternative solutions. I wanted to have a change of clothes when i realised that I could't check in early but there weren't any toilet at the lobby. Breakfast were served right at the entrance outside the hotel along a walkway with heavy traffic passing by. It was not a restaurant but look just like a make shift store! It was very different from the photos on the hotel's homepage. The breakfast menu was very limited and they didn't look and taste good at all. I even saw a dead cockcroach at the lobby which was left lying around the whole morning.

    The central locatio. Though right now lots of construction works going on, they seem to be rebuiling the whole area.

    Forget about the breakfast! No variatyand very (I mean very) poor quality. Rather leave it and have a cheap breakfast in one of the coffeeshops around.

    Hotels locations is great (in Bugis). MRT station is near and you can also walk to Orchard road and to Clarke Quay. Near to the hotel you can find 7eleven and some nice food court, and Sim Lim square is near by (if you want to buy electronics). Room was quit small but clean and I would say it was nice.

    Staff wasn't so friendly and helpful. Hotel charge us an extra fee because they say that we had booked hotel so late. We booked it one day before. So that was wierd.

  • Couple
    7.4

    Great location and convenient for a city tour.

    The room is plain looking. Though the bathroom is very clean. Better to change the carpets soon. They look kinda old.

  • Single
    4.2

    The first day, the sheet was dirty but it was much improved on the other days.

    Most receptionists and staff never smile with customers. Local-owned hotel, thus, not professional. Room is critically small and the view is to look at other hotels' wall. Not a good value for a charge of over sgd140 per night not including tax. No internet.

  • Single
    10.0

    Spa, rate and location in the city

    Breakfast is not so diverse

  • Family with children
    5.4

    The breakfast was outside on the sidewalk which was strange but kind of cool.

    Rooms very small. Staff showed little interest in hotel guests.

  • Couple
    5.8

    Location was pretty good, short walk to Orchard rd main shopping area. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    Too expensive for what it was, stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and including taxes it cost £180 and during my trip I stayed at much better hotels for much less.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The hotel is near the mrt and bus stop. The room we stayed in was clean and the service was fairly good.

    The breakfast buffet was limited and the family room was smaller than expected.

  • Couple
    4.6

    too small room, picture is not same with fact

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Helpfulness of staff. Ease of getting around

    Breakfast was quite limited in its choice e.g. choice of cereals, breads
