Stayed here for 4 nights, last month. We, a couple, were traveling from India and this was our first visit to Singapore. Though, the hotel building looked starkly different from the online photos (on agoda, booking.com), everything else was as expected. Small rooms, no breakfast and kallang mrt station at walking distance (900m away).

Aida (the lady at reception), was kind enough to provide us with early check-in (11.30am). We reached at 10am and went out to grab breakfast while leaving the luggage at hotel (open luggage storage opposite reception). It felt safe; the crowd was a mix of families, couples and kids. The room was fairly clean (with daily room cleaning) and had thin walls (could overhear sounds at times) with a sealed glass window. It had the essential toiletries (even towels), indian electrical sockets (can use phone chargers directly) and open cloth hangers (no almirah). AC was essential provided Singapore’s weather and thankfully, it was working fine. The reception staff was straight forward and responsive.

Later, we came to know that the neighbourhood (geylang) is known to be a red light area, but, honestly we never felt anything unusual (unsafe). Overall, a budget friendly hotel located strategically.

Stayed here from feb 8-11 with family. Nice little hotel. We got here around 2pm which was a good time to check in but if you arrive earlier, you can leave your baggage with them while you roam around the area, same goes for if your flight is later in the day and it's too early to go back the airport. Short walk to a bunch of places to eat and to catch a bus if needed. Short grab to suntec, gardens by the bay, marina bay sands. Clean rooms but very small, good movies on tv, restocked every day with water and coffee. Bathrooms were small but water was powerful and great hot water. Yi song was very hospitable, speaks english well, gave me smaller Bill's for money when needed, and was just a very nice guy. Would come back here again.

The staff at the hotel were very knowledgeable and helpful! Yi Song helped me plan a trip to the nature reserve using the bus routes to save a ton of money on a cab ride. He even offered a shower room after check out when I got back, as my plane left late in the evening. The staff were so helpful with assisting me with my bags and a couple special requests. The staff go over and above.

There’s an antagonist working as a Supervisor in this Hotel. Fabian Ng repugnance and obnoxious insolence is appalling! Any requests by guests is immediately rebutted with an emphatic NO! He doesn’t even try or at least show he’s trying to provide a service. His answers are always sarcastic and illogical. Makes no sense. For example, I ask for a corner room because it’s away from the other noisy rooms and for that; his shrill and condescending rebuttal was: “you cannot stop people from going in and out from their rooms”. He enjoys antagonising the hotel guests! Literally patronising us with his smug and passive aggression!
He made it very personal with me by plunging me on the same floor and in the middle of the boisterous Vietnamese tour group. He refused to assist me in anyway and deliberately told me there’s no noises coming from the Vietnamese group only when they have left for dinner! He always carries around the smug attitude and he defies me to write a negative review about him.
Fabian Ng seriously has no blinking idea what the hospitality business is all about and is definitely a Liability to any hospitality industry that hires him. He clearly has issues and going back to the drawing board of the hospitality industry is not going to help him; because he has no idea nor interests to what services from the heart is all about!

Even though the room was small it was neat and tidy. The staff were extremely helpful and assisted me with a smile to organise transfers, taxis, Grab Rides, food and any other request for assistance. They made me feel very included and were really lovely and helpful! Excellent service!!!

Very clean and economic for Singapore. The location is close to MRT and Stadium. A bit noisy before 10pm after this is quiet. Local food just a few minutes and DECATHLON Sports retail, KFC and Mc Donalds in 5 minutes walking

This has been amazing experience in the hotel, I had a early check in by the front office guy Mr. Fabian. Very helpful and cooperative. I will high recommended this hotel to the people because most of the places are near by and you will get lots of Indian restaurants near by.

The hotel is close to various modes of transportation.
Close to Kallang & Mountbatten MRT station.
The hotel is comfortable, the staff are friendly (especially Fabian) & the facilities are ok.
But the manager must pay attention to cleaning details from housekeeping.
Because even though I pressed the "make up room" button, the housekeeping team didn't tidy up my room.
And maybe they forgot to change the sheets so there was lots of hair & clean every corner of the room properly (the hanger & kettle were dusty).
Above all, I enjoyed staying at this hotel and plan to return when I visit Singapore.

As the hotel doesn't have a minibar or room service, there is no requirement to use a credit card. If the booking has already been paid for prior to check-in your son will not need to present a credit card. He will need to have identification though - his passport if not a Singapore national.
