“Nice hotel with authentic interior”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Location is not perfect - Chinatown, where I prefer to visit in, but do not for stay there, but this is ok.

The interior in traditional Chinese style, corridors completely in red, the rooms assigned to the name, I had a Warrior, the warrior's room. There is also a Scholar. Rooms too small, air-conditioner without the remote, pult control only can be given at the reception, I did not have. Tea, coffee. But this hotel is expensive, 260 singdollars standard, I booked 90 singdollarov the fee for booking.com, took five nights. And it was apparently promotion. Now not booking for this price as the coming months too.
There are two ways out from the hotel - 1st through the main outlet to Chinatown food street (cheap street stalls with food being prepared and the tables, chairs), it is possible through the "gray" outlet - to the shopping street.
Nice staff.

Also, next information can be important for someone. Under the windows always plays the Chinese music, loud, but it was ok for me personally. The music turn off the clock at 24.00. The windows are wooden shutters, so that for got sunlight, it is necessary to open them on the street.

the website attracted our attention but the hotel did not reflect this. the staff seemed uninterested and lazy. the room was down a narrow red corridor, dodgy escalator and another narrow red corridor. at the end of it was a astronaut size pod for a room. it was not big enough for us to open our bags properly, the shower was above the toilet and flooded the bathroom. there were no windows and the bed was an after thought. and this was the superior double room at £90 per night! a hostel at hotel prices, look elsewhere

Room Tip: stay elsewhere

Nice looking lobby and great service from the staff. Deluxe room was terribly small and Santa grand has failed miserably to deliver tranquility amid chaos....sound proofing was terribly inadequate and the room was very noisy especially at night with the hawker stalls and night market, good luck if you are a light sleeper.
