Positive Reviews

Exceedingly helpful staff

The staff at this Singapore hotel are exceedingly friendly and helpful, especially the front-desk reception team. Always cheery, the team here handle all queries thoroughly and promptly. Many guests were so impressed with the service they received that they took the time to mention staff by name in their reviews.

Clean and tidy, renovation much appreciated

In addition to its sparkling staff and their tremendous customer service ethos, this hotel received high praise for its clean and well-presented appearance. Many were also impressed by the recent refurbishment/renovation here, something that has helped to add to the overall cheery and warm ambience of this accommodation.

Budget pick, handy for airport, eateries nearby

Set away from Singapore's main sites, this property does offer reasonable bus connections to the downtown core area. However, this hotel yet proved to be a popular pick for those looking for budget accommodation close to Changi International Airport. Also, hungry guests were pleased to find a huge variety of restaurants and eateries on Joo Chiat Road.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms

While well-kept and nicely maintained, many found the units at this property to be on the smaller side.

Out of the way location

Those hoping to be in the heart of central Singapore were left disappointed by this property's location, which many found to be inconveniently far from the city's main attractions.

In-room noise a problem

Finally, thin walls were an issue here. Guests reported that noise from rooms above and adjacent to their units was an on-going problem.
