Champion Hotel
Ranked #114 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 21 October 2014

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.

Room Tip: Room facing the back of the hotel was noise-free. A room with windows would be a good investment as...

The hotel located slightly outskirt but have MRT station nearby (10 mins walking) by which it was possible to travel to any place of the city. Also, it was situated just around the corner of one major street where Bus stations are available to go anywhere. The airport was near by, around 20 mins via MRT. Lots of food shops, supermarkets were around so no issue with food or groceries.

The hotel was very clean which was of prime importance to us. From lobby to room and bathroom, everything was clean. Toiletries and room accessories were decent will all major necessities present. Housekeeping was fair and stuffs were very much helpful.

The negative side was the size of the room which was small (but that was the case for almost all mid-range hotels in SG). Also, some room types did not have any window which might have some psychological affect.

Overall, the hotel was a great value for money. Considering the general price range of hotels in Singapore, the hotel exceeded my expectation.

Room Tip: Get a deluxe room on the upper floor with window.

Had a 4 night stay here. Very clean rooms, regular tidying by staff, helpful and friendly reception. No breakfast available, but lots of local food centres within 5 min walk distance, and we were allowed to bring in take away into our rooms. But no plates, spoon, etc are not available neither in hotel nor in stores around. Coffee making facilities and air conditioning were good. Don't expect u can open the window, coz we had DTS sounding of traffic, moreover it didn't matter coz we were there to roam around not sit by a balcony!!!! Small bathroom, adjustable. Stable and very good internet connection with print option.
Overall, a good hotel, good price, close to airport and plenty of taxi at hotel entrance, 5min walk to bus stop too.

Recently had a four night stay in this hotel. I think without doubt the best of it's kind in this area. Very large room, excellent aircon system, comfortable beds, a great shower and modern bathroom. Friendly staff and easy walking distance to the nearest train station. If you need to stay in this area it's a very good and affordable choice.

Room Tip: I had an internal room, no windows but quiet & a I slept like a log

Love the atmosphere of the hotel once we step into the lobby. Quirky sofa pillows and a wooden swing greets us as we walk towards the front desk. Staff greeted us with the most friendliest smile. Checking in was a breeze. We book thru booking.com and got a double deluxe room. The room was fantastic clean and modern. Maybe hotel is still new.
Will definitely come back to stay! Keep up the standard Champion!
