I went there in October 2015, but am going to go again there this summer. The rooms are big and comfortable. It is not very new but it is clean. The location is great near Dhobi Gaut metro station. You just have to walk a bit, but as soon as you know where it is, it is quite fast (less...

It is walking distance from Dhoby Gaut MRT station so it is pretty accessible to anywhere you would want to go. There is also a bus stop before you reach the train station. The place is clean. The rooms were definitely bigger than standard rooms in SG from what I heard. We get bottled water, tea, and coffee replenished daily....

I was pleasantly surprised by the building as I approached. It is larger that I expected with a bright and clean lobby. I was unable to have my room until the afternoon which after a 14 hour flight was disappointing but not unexpected.
