10 mins walk to nearest train station. Quite secluded - no near 7'11 store. Since we had a senior citizen with us, we cannot walk much, we took uber which is very convenient. breakfast buffet is filling. room is quite big as well. Comfort room inside the room quite rusty, but functioning.

Room is bigger than other hotel in Singapore compare with others. Price depands when you can get best deal. Breakfast is so so. Not too bad. Location is quite far from Doulby Ghout MRT/ bus station.

We spent our time there for 4 days. The location are excellent, about 10 minutes walking distance to the nearest mrt station. The rooms are quite clean, but the cleaning service are poor, the floors are still dirty even after they cleaned the room. The hotel doesn't have room service. The restaurant only opens until 9 pm. The window period...

Have stayed at this hotel a number of times and found the location a 5 min walk from Dhoby Gaut MTR station and to the start of Orchard Road.

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. I took my luggage up to the swimming pool and was able to change and shower there....

This hotel is about right for a 3* rating. Price is excellent for Singapore and the location is pretty good as well. I rather wish I had stayed a 4th night, but my onward flight was booked.

The room is spartan, but clean and quite adequate. I wish they would supply a small hand towel. All you get are two big bath towels. The maid said they didn't have any. A/C works good and the breakfast buffet at $11.75 SGD is a bargain. Close to Bras Basha rail station.
