Checking in was ok, simple design. Room was quite small, amenities were pretty basic, no chair in the room for the table. Bathroom was good and spacious and have a floor mat to prevent from slipping. Walls are all partition so outside noise like closing doors can be heard. Even though my room was on the second floor facing the road, its not noisy at all and morning sun shined in well.
Heard from friend that this is a good place to chill out and catch up with friends. We came here to try. Good food and drinks. However, when we enjoyed dinner, the unprofessional manager came to the table and made our dinner experience horrible. Her name is June. We have never meet such rude person in charge in hospitality and she couldn’t handle customer enquire. She sent her staffs to coordinate with us and run away from the situation. Our dinner stopped here...won’t come back any more!
This hotel has a good location and ok for a short stay. The reception worked ok although the receptionist was a bar tender at the same time. The rooms are very small and run down, would be time to renovate the whole building. The shower-toilet combo is very small. When You shower, everything in the bathroom gets wet. The AC worked well and we didn’t get bothered by the noise from the downstairs located bar as some reviewers but we heard the music. Singapore prices are high but still -not quite worth the money.
Very good location both in terms of walking and public transportation. The room I got was not very big and with no windows and placed on 2 floor meaning that music from the bar downstairs could be heard (not loud) - so of you very sensitive properly should opt for a room at the 3rd floor. For a short stay like mine, it was ok but for a longer period og time I would find something where you are able to stay without getting depressed.
Please be advised that you be staying in a clean “cell”. They don’t tell you that in the advertisement. The price is very high for the accommodation provided. Many others in Chinatown for this $ with windows.
Absolutely terrible place! Avoid at all costs! We ordered sirloin steak. It was served with cold potatoes and vegetables (clearly didn't spend much time in the microwave). They reheated it for me. The food was bland and nothing special. Certainly not worth the $28. Then came the bill and they whacked on an extra $14.19 service charge. I complained about this but to no avail. Unhelpful and unsympathetic managerial type woman. This place has extortionate prices for what essentially was jusylt microwaved food. AVOID THIS PLACE! DO NOT GO HERE!
The hotel is mere steps away from the Chinatown MRT, which made it easy to travel around the city. It was also very convenient to buy cheap souvenirs, with Chinatown just around the block. There's a convenience store nearby where you can buy the Singapore Tourist Pass as well. My room was very clean. I had read previous reviews stating that the rooms were extremely small and that the showers made the whole bathroom wet, but I had no such problems. I traveled solo so I understand how some might feel cramped, but the Deluxe Queen room was more than enough for me. And I had no problems with the shower either. I put a towel on the toilet seat cover as a precaution while showering, but it barely got wet. The breakfast food was also amazing! Super delicious and ample portions. A special thank you to Lisa at the front desk who was so accommodating and helpful, and helped me not to starve even after coming home in the early hours of the morning after the U2 concert. I would love to come back!…
We stayed in the Southbridge Hotel for our 10 day vacation trip to Singapore. The location of the hotel is just perfect, it's right on the outskirts of Chinatown and it's an easy walk to the Marina (15 minutes) and Clark Quay (10 minutes) and ofcourse, there are 3 foodcourts very nearby as well (Chinatown Complex, Amoy Street and Maxwell) The Chinatown MRT is a 5 minute walk and a Grab car or taxi is always near as well. The rooms are more than decent for what you pay, not too cramped at all. The bathroom is "wet", which isnt uncommon in Asia and didn't bother us at all. Housekeeping did a great job at keeping the room nice and tidy. Loved the bed! They have great discounts on rooms at times if you book direct. It's a budget/boutique hotel, so keep that in mind. If you expect 5 star room and service, book a 5 star hotel :) For us, this was perfect for a holiday. The bar is nice too, with decent prized food and drinks. So, all in all, very pleased we stayed there!…
Ok, But no more , Hotel in a great location close to Chinatown. Very Comfy bed, small room But the damp in the room is not really nice. Should be fixed among other things that Can be improved. This old beauty deserves more love and caring and guests As well, But y have to step up to the plate
I struggle in Asia as a wine drinker....enjoy a beer or two in the heat, but not too many! The Southbridge was a treat indeed - Nice and close to Chinatown - and found on our last day! I could have been tempted to stay here, had I seen the wine store first! The food looked good, but we were headed for Chinatown, so were only up for a drink or two.
