This is less than a basic hotel. For “antique" read “run down" Most hotels are acceptable if clean, this was not. The rooms are tiny, dust on all surfaces, cobwebs & dirt hanging from filthy air conditioning unit. All furniture and walls grubby. Bathroom door doesn't work. This hotel would not be star rated at all in the UK and I can only guess that the positive views have come from people more used to hostel type accommodation. Someone wrote that the shower was powerful, not on the 3rd floor it's not, 50 steps up. And the toilet space was described by a previous poster about legroom. I’m average height and I had to sit side saddle. The room felt permanently damp and humid. I know Singapore is humid, but I have just spent a week in just as humid Malaysia and the room was fine. The sheets did not fit the bed and continually rode up to expose bare mattress. The location is great for Chinatown and close to an MRT station but, although it is a bit rowdy at night with girls touting outside bars for ‘buisness', the hotel is not great A plus is that the staff were pleasant enough. Luckily they supply slippers too, as you wouldn't want to step on the carpet. This site is Tripadvisor and I only usually post comments when I have something genuine to say, good or bad. my advise is to try elsewhere. …
I chose this hotel mainly because it’s in Chinatown where there are lots of food stalls and bargain goods. I wasn’t expecting too much from this hotel as their rate isn’t that expensive. But lo and behold, i was surprised by the Class A service i got, the staff were very polite, friendly and accommodating, the rooms were nice, aircons were in good working condition. Special mention to the lady from fookien doing the room clean up, very friendly and honest, i left my wristwatch on the table and some bills and coins, i wasn’t touched at all. It was a great stay at a reasonable price. Great location, great place to stay. Simply class A in all aspects
Room on 1st floor, tucked away right at the back, so no outside noise at all, room fairly small, me and my luggage = room full!!! Nice enough hotel, bit tired in furnishing and decor, but clean. Friendly staff, room had a fridge and a safe. Shower, brilliant pressure and always hot. Right in the heart of Chinatown. WIll defo stay again.
We are a group of 5 friends, who stayed here for a weekend staycation. The rooms are clean and tidy, pretty small and just enough for minimal movement and bags (not big luggage). The receptionist made check in a breeze for us, and even when we came back to the hotel early next morning, there were people at front desk, which makes the hotel really safe in the wee hours. In the morning, there was loud sounds coming from the roadside and temples. That is one downside. Nevertheless the great location (close proximity to Clarke Quay) made it an ideal location for a short staycation.
Beside that, I don’t have any other to say. Just standard inn, the authenticity is just on the vintage model and there are some old vintage stuff. The room is quite small, feeling too full with just 2 cabin luggages. The noise on the front road is quite disturbing. There’s no bidet in the bathroom. I got the room for price SGD 110, it’s quiet expensive. The location is just around the Chinatown MRT, so for you who plan to scrolling around Chinatown, it’s recommended place to stay. But I prefer to try other hotel next time.
