“Disappointed second time around”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2016

I stayed at the Kam Leng hotel twice in 2012. It was in a good location, a small hotel with nice décor. Sadly the hotel has fallen into disrepair and I hope the management takes notice before it obtains more poor ratings. I booked six nights with my husband in Sept 2016, an Executive suite, very disappointed. The room are dirty and damp, the walls need painting, glass windows repaired and carpet is musty. Some of the front desk staff are helpful, others disinterested in guests. I was looking forward to the coffee shop that was being built in 2012, but it was not worth it. Poor service for breakfast, them becomes a bar during the night. As others mentioned, there is a lack of shelves and luggage space in the room and bathroom. The bathroom fan stays on all night. Currently there is major building in the area, so it is not a quiet place. During our visit the on-street room rates dropped from $149. per night to $69. per night. The hotel is also being used as a brothel. Would not recommend the Kam Leng hotel until some improvement, there are much better medium priced accommodation in the area.

Room Tip: back room, back street view with windows

Highly recommended for a solo traveler. Also good for a short stay for family, long (if u just wanna come n sleep). Excellent Location and connectivity for public transport (SBT n MRT). Decent stay. A budget category hotel with traditional vintage interior (!).

no doubt the loby was nicely decorated with "hipster" yet "vintage" vibe . I was excited for the room and i did took lots of pictures . But once we got our room key , as we walk towards the lift , there's this staircase that gave us chills about it . We went up to the 2nd floor . That feeling just got worst . We had to go through the coridoor the same staircase was there . Its even darker and more creepy . We didnt wanna be too quick to judge so we continued our stay . Went inside our room and it was spacious . But i have to admit there was a very strong smell and it took awhile for it to go off . There was a super loud construction noise outside our window . My bf went out to get food across the streets at night and i stayed in the room . Honestly we both know there's something about this place that is not right . We checked out at around 4+AM . Again that corridoor , That staircase literally giving us those cold chills with goosebumps. But thats ok bcs we know we r checking out . Unfortunately . It doesnt end there . We waited for a taxi outside d hotel . N we both still could feel like there's "something" . It followed my bf home n he've been having disturbance and sightings of a big size man since he arrived home . This have been going on for 2-3days straight now . Believe it or not . Im not making up stories . And its our personal experience . We have tried a handful of different hotels ranging frm sgd200^ n this is the cheapest we've been to so far. Definitely will be the 1st and the last .

Our stay was great. The price was really cheap if comparing to other same typed hotels around.Room size is quite small, but no problems with tiny Asians like us. Bed and pillows were comfy. Decoration is rather scary if you got back at night. Good location as near bus stations

First... Dont expect that this hotel is a modern hotel but the room clean enough. I suggest at least to take the Superior room because the standart is too small. But the location is quiete good, bus stop just across the hotel. You may go to orchard, clarke quay, suntec city very easy. The nearest MRT Farrer Park is about 500m walking distance, also Mustafa shopping center. There are several food court around this area and 711 too.

Room Tip: Superior up will be better
