Reviewed 11 April 2017 via mobile

Central location was good and handy food mall just on the corner but the rooms were a let down. Our room was a miserable biege with dark brown highlights. It smelled as is someone had just smoked a pack or two in there. They couldnt change me so i put up with it for 2 nights.
Nearly suicidal by the end but i did get a cheap deal!!!

We stayed hotel for a week.
I found is a very decent and nice hotel.
the hotel is within walking distance to the Bugis Street Shopping area, (7-11), is just next door few Food Republic ( Kopitiam food court) is near by
MRT subway station is few steps away. The free buffet breakfast food variety is modest, it was okay. The reception desk was nice & helpful. The hotel room was clean, & the aircon was working well. The bed & pillows were comfortable and the bathroom was updated.

Room Tip: Hotel doesn't provide free water bottle

The people at the front desk seemed set on serving foreigners better than Asians. Requests have to be repeated multiple times and they seem to have "so much" going on behind the counter that they spend more time amongst themselves than serving the guests.

we satyed at bayview back in dec 2015.
hotel is very close to the metro (just 1 min walk) which makes it so important for travelling about.few landmarks, churches and shoppers' spots are also at arms reach. we enjoyed the slow walks so i guess they are within 1km to 2km to the hotel.
staff is quite helpful but not the most enthusiastic kind. daily breakfast is ok too, but dont expect star class standards. being in the hotel trade i see when people are just trying their best to manage with the few equipment they have. but still no one complained since most of us were just in for few mins before leaving for other activities.
rooms are bit old and damp and you get the feeling that the carpets have not seen any sunlight for quite a while.other than that whole room was spotlessly clean.
pool too looked great although we didnt have the time for a swim.
all in all bayview is an affordable hotel for overnight stays and could recomend it if you're not too keen on star class luxury.
hope after the renovation this would be a more splendid place to fall in.

Room Tip: go for the lesser priced rooms since its not much of difference room wise.

Location is close to the metro and shopping mall which makes it very easy to get around Singapore. Good clean hotel, free mini bar! Mostly softdrinks, water and crisps but came in very useful.
Lovely comfy bed, clean and safe feeling to it.
