If you need a budget friendly hotel this is it. The size of the room is adequate and the regular room has a comfort room of its own. Staff is hospitable. There is a convenience store right next to the hotel entrance. Location is great. It is in the middle of the busy district surrounded by malls and some govt... More

Stayed in this hotel on my short vacation to Singapore. easy access to the Bugis Metro Station as well as shopping centres. Room was very small and you can hear all the noises from the corridors. Room which we stayed literally didn't have any view. Neighborhood was ok but not clean as you think of Singapore.

I stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip to Singapore. The stay was fine but room could've been little bigger with a window at least. This is a B&B hotel (with no breakfast, of course) close to MRT and you should not expect anything much, than just a bed to sleep and a washroom to use!

If you really want a cheap stay in Singapore you might consider staying in this hotel. It's location is very accessible to malls, stations and everything. Their staffs are friendly and easy to approach. You should be physically ready to walk and walk to feel how it feels like to be in Singapore.
