Stayed here for 6 nights and used it as a very efficient base for exploring Singapore. It is located near the airport in a suburban area of the city and the walk to the MRT is 10-15 minutes long - luckily the walk passes by many restaurants, food courts and even a mall so it's convenient to find things in the area. The room was clearly very new and kept quite well. The TV has only a small selection of channels, and the speaker system isn't of great quality.
Staff were overall very helpful except for one time where we had to urgently find a drycleaning place. They weren't able to help us, and told us they had no idea where we could go - but when we finally found one near the MRT station after a long search, they told us in fact they worked with the hotel on a regular basis and were confused why we weren't referred to them. Hope that they can come to some arrangement in the future for travellers who need laundry done urgently.
We didn't get to wander around the area much, but the area is known to locals as a centre of Peranakan culture and architecture as well as the site of East Coast park, which contains a small beach. Plenty of good food options in the area though it does get a little seedy at night, nothing to worry about though.
