From MRT Lavender, out from exit B, walk to road behide V hotel about 10 minutes. Room is small but cozy bed, comfortable and quiet. Staffs are friendly and warm welcome. Eco Loft single room without hair dryer.I recommend for deluxe or window room that more light from outside. It's good memory for me here.This is good choice for comfortable and quiet hotel.

Location is fine, between two subway stations at the north side of little India. It’s clean and friendly. The only con is the size of the standard double room. It’s impossible (and when I say impossible, I mean impossible) to bring two big luggages in the room. Me and my girlfriend had only one luggage, and it was almost fine.

I stayed in superior twin room for 2 nights

i'm quite particular about the hotel i wanted to stay in every cities i visited. It must has good value, rather centrally located, good reviews for cleanliness and good access to public transportation. and Hotel YAN does not dissapoint.

ROOM
Yes, it is small. but this is singapore, you'll hardly get a good size with such small prizes. My room has twin bed with large window and balcony access. there are not much room to keep luggage, so best not to bring too much of luggage when you stay here. Bed is very comfy, linen is super clean and they provide extra pillow if needed. Room lightning is a bit darkish / yellowish due to the color of the darkish grey wall and tiles. There are universal power plug near the beds, so you don't have to bring adapter. TV is very sad, they only show 8 local channel. There is small refrigerator with free minibar! (2 can of cokes, a small bag of chips and two small bag of M&Ms chocolate), and this minibar is refill everyday! how generous! Dilmah Teas and Instant Coffees is also provided, of course with water boiler.

BATHROOM
bathroom is separated by curtain from the bedroom. Its super clean. the toilet has shower bidet (We asian loves this!), and the separated shower room has rainshower. Water heater work well, but there was only one day when i smell some stink, probably from the sinkhole, but it quickly went away. The provided toiletries is complete and of good quality, they even give a recycled toiletries bag for free! (and again replaced everyday!). Towel is thick and comfortable. you can request hairdryer from receptionist. This is a 4 star quality bathroom!

LOCATION
about 500-600 meter from Bendeemer MRT (blue line) and Lavender MRT (green line), and 400 meter to bus station, No 145 bring you to many places central, including vivocity for universal studios. When coming from airport using MRT, stop at Lavender and go straight north. There are two local and cheap eateries nearby. A small seven eleven nearby too. 500 meter to city square mall, about 750m to Mustafa center, the largest cheap megastore in Singapore. Its very quiet at night.

FACILITIES
i dont think they have gym or pool or business center. wifi is provided is okay speed, sometime can be slow. The hotel lobby has many chairs, very comfortable! i usually sit there for a while before going up to my room.

STAFF
Super Friendly! singapore is notorious for its grumpy service sometime, but staffs at Hotel YAN is incredibly friendly. They will warmly greet you whenever they see you. And i would like to mention Jasmine for her kindness handling our luggage, and help taking our photos!

I highly recommend hotel YAN for its value, cleanliness and top service.

Hotel Yan has one very rude male staff (spencer chua) at the hotel during day time,
very pushy guy, he wanted me to upgrade my room and I refused to do so because I didn't want to pay more because I was leaving soon so he gave me the snobbish look the whole time I stayed there, not to mention he was racist to me after he scanned my passport and whispered to another staff about my nationality,
he also never greeted every time I walk in or out the hotel..
If I had not pre-paid for few nights for the room, I would straight away cancel my booking and move to different hotel! I actually didn't mind paying extra for nicer hotel with better service! Totally waste of money and time!

We regret to hear about your unfortunate experience during your stay and we truly appreciate your feedbacks.

There sure are a lot of things I like the most about this hotel.

Of course, I did research before going to Singapore with my husband and my 18-month-old baby. Majority of the reviews said the room is too small -- but I told my husband we have to still give it a try. Aside from the fact that it is one of the cheapest well-rated hotels in the area, I am more concerned about the proximity to the places where you could get cheap food (yeah, it is true that everything is expensive in Singapore).

Hotel YAN did not disappoint.

It is fronting a hawkre center and a few blocks away, another hawkre center is situated. There is 711 across the street. It is also near the FairPrice supermarket, the Lavender MRT and the bus stations. I never got into any trouble finding my way, despite the fact that it was just me and my baby (husband was attending a conference).

The hotel staff are also very polite and approachable. They let us borrow a local mobile phone that you can use for local calls, Google Maps and taxi bookings. They also lent us an adaptor.

During our stay, I specifically loved how the hotel always smelled nice and clean. Yes, the room is small - but it could work if you aren't too sensitive. My husband and I decided to unpack and then put our luggage bags and stroller in the balcony just so they would not consume space inside the already small room. The bed is also very comfortable.

All in all, I highly recommend this hotel to everyone looking for a nice, cheap, and strategically-located hotel.

My Partner, Theresa and I Stayed for 3 nights in this awesome hotel. Everything was wonderful in Hotel Yan. From the moment we entered the stylish lobby, staffs are delightful and check in was fast. Our room was perfect, and had a balcony. The bed and air conditioning were comfortable too. We got free daily minibar. A short walk to the Train Station (Lavender), and there were many restaurants around this hotel. All staffs there were so nice, and always ready to do anything for you with a friendly smile. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend. They will make your stay as pleasurable as possible. Thank you Hotel Yan - We will be back !

So we stayed here for a night due to our home going through minor renovating. The hotel is located adjacent to Lavender Street which is just 10 -15 mins away to the city center, definitely a recommended place to substitute for big and cold-like hotels. Like many others, I too did my homework before booking, this is partly near home and it's new. It has gotten good reviews overall except for one or two which I believe has been exaggerated and unjustified.

The building was unassuming from the facade. I also noticed a lift that is located at the entrance of the hotel for elderly wheelchair-bound guests which was very thoughtful and considerate. We were welcome by a lady (I think it's the boss) and Benjamin. They were both very cordial. We stayed in room #501 which was a King Suite and check in was smooth and quick. I noticed in one of the review is that the hotel had ask for deposit, which was totally normal as we did in luxury hotels in Singapore and all over the world, so don't be alarm. :| As I entered the room, this reminds me of Hotel Eurostars David in Prague! Room definitely gives that WOW factor. The design definitely takes you by surprise! 3 words: Cozy, quality & warm! It has rough finishing accompanied by a touch of elegance. My husband and I work for luxury hotels and this hotel is indeed a boutique category on top of that, this is a non-smoking hotel.

For such caliber hotel, it's room amenities is of a luxury hotel standards. Quality room slippers, fluffy bathrobes, iron & board, complimentary mini bar (replenished daily), full toiletries set, good thick towels, elegant bath tub, umbrellas etc. The best part of it, their heavenly mattress made us feel like home. I honestly can't find any fault in the room as it has everything a guest need.

We would like to also thank Harmesh and Nee Hau (I'm sorry if I spelled it wrong) for helping us with our supper. You guys indeed went the extra mile. All the other staffs that we came across has been hospitality-trained which was impressive coming from a small boutique hotel.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a different kind of experience!

hotel is very modern, near many eateries and it's very clean too. the pillow is not to our liking but i'm sure that's not the same case for everyone. in the middle of the night or early dawn (i don't know), the temple in front rang its bell which we can hear clearly from our room. we didn't sleep much due to the uncomfortable pillow and the bell. room is small, but adequate for 2 people with a cabin luggage. free minibar is such a sweet gesture. unluckily we couldn't ask for a 1hr late check out due to the high season that the receptionist claimed. we would stay here again if there isn't anywhere else with such a price
