we stayed in this hotel on June 3-6, 2017. we booked a room with a photo that showed two single beds that were joined together and one bunk bed. i traveled with my husband and our 4yr old daughter who doesnt sleep by herself whenever we are at a hotel. when we were given a room, i was disappointed to see two separately placed single beds and one bunk bed i asked for a room that was shown at the time of booking but was informed that they do not have any more available room like that. also, the room was warm. so i looked for the remote control of the aircon but was shocked when the lady at the reception told us that all the aircon of all the rooms were centralized and cannot be adjusted like in a regular hotel. there is also no complimentary water or glass or toiletries (except towels). the room was less than basic! my daughter ended up sleeping in the single bed which was too small for another person to sleep in. i so pity her coz she wanted to sleep beside me. she would usually sleep by herself in our own home but not in a strange place. worst, the room had very poor wall acoustics. you can perfectly hear every closing and opening of the doors of your neighbor rooms. we can even perfectly hear the people talking in the other room. some reviews say that this place is short walk from the Gloucester Road station which is not true esp if you are traveling with kids. The Museum of Natural History located just in front of the hotel doesnt even make it worth staying at. This place is misleading. It is not a hotel. it is a mere place for backpackers. I certainly regretted booking this hotel. for the same price, we could have booked a better hotel.
