The location of this hotel is its main USP. It is a 5 minutes walk from the nearest MRT station (Lavender) and only 3 stations away from the CBD and Marina Bay area. There are eateries, food courts, restaurants, supermarket, grocery and convenience stores, banks and ATMs all within walking distance. The famous Mustafa Centre City Square Mall are within 15 minutes walking distance. The room was small but nice and tidy. The room I stayed had no windows, which took some time to get used to. The bed was really cosy. The free Wi-Fi speed was good. The breakfast was with limited options but prepared fresh and the portion size was good. The bathroom was quite well designed and it was nice to find L'Occitane toiletries. Note : I travelled in 2017. This is a late review.
Had been eyeing on this hotel for a while now base on the photos online. Had to stay a night out in town so took this chance to experience Arcadia. The hotel which located quite a distance from nearby MRT, it's situated around the same area of all other budget hotels. Yes, I said it. This hotel which doesn't look budget given the rates is par with other hotels out there which is 4* or higher quality in rooms and area. The hotel is slightly rundown, and the soundproofing isn't exactly great as well. Oh, there's also renovation going on next door so expect noise if you need the room during the day to rest. I book the loft room, but since I need to check in early, I was given "patio room" with some additional charge. Did actually expecting an actual patio, but it's actually only a small balcony overlooking back alleys if the neighborhood. The room, small but expected. The bed is comfy which deserve my 3 star rating instead of 2 and below. The bathroom is also decent, long and deep sunken type - but, the management have to review their towels given to guest. It's really old. I know I shouldn't complain much since this is categorized as budget boutique. But base on the asking rate, there's so much more choices out there. Didn't check out the actual patio area which comes with a jacuzzi. I would not recommend this hotel base on my experience and expectations. The only best things worth mentioning is the comfy bed and loccitane toiletries. …
The service was really good, breakfast was nice, and the room was nice and tidy too. The location of the hotel was very vonveninent, 5 minutes walk feom the MRT station and onnly 3 stations away from Marina bay. The only unusual thing was the fact that the room had no windows🙄😳 which was kind of a challenge to get used to. If you are someone who is always on the road and comes bach to the hotel only to sleep, than it is a really good place, if you are rathrr the person who spends time in the room or are claustrophobic than leave it be.
I do not recommend this hotel. The room pictures and descriptions are a lie and the manager is a horrible person. We booked a deluxe room with a window as stated in the room description and picture (Agoda) but didn't get what we paid for. They were not willing to provide the room we booked for so we ended up checking-out and booking a much better and cheaper hotel 2 steps away. My advice: Stay away.
No frills hotel with simple amenities. Pros: - comfortable bed - good selection of channels on TV - good water pressure in the shower - good & friendly staff service. The guy at the counter brought my luggage up - there is a nearby 24hrs foodcourt - l’ocitanne shower products - good coffee & breakfast in the hotel itself Cons: - mouldy shower curtains - thin walls but bearable - dirty carpets - wall papers are stained and peeling off Paid about USD$100/night, worth it. Only needed a place to sleep for a quick overnight business trip
