Excellent service, great room layout, friendly staffs and close at the heart of SG. Will surely come back again sometime soon! This hotel is a hidden gem and was over the top pleased to had found it. Hubby and I had an excellent come back experience in SG after two years. We missed our rat race life here.

We're looking for a hotel in Joo chiat with a good review and we found this. True enough, we were very much satisfied in our stay here. Small but very clean room. The location is near bus and train station. Too bad they do not offer breakfast. A lot of food hawkers nearby though,

This hotel is a hidden gem. Found it by accident and I'm so glad! We've stayed here twice and will always be be back.

1. Unlike average hotel rooms in Singapore, the rooms (and the bathrooms) here are spacious. And very clean. For the prices offered, it's very affordable.
2. Across the street and around the hotel, you can shop pretty much anything. The Fair Price supermarket sells nice BBQ chickens, organic stuff, it's really nice. A few meters from the hotel, there's a fruit shop. We love buying the fruits there. Nice owners, too.
3. Staff are very helpful and friendly.
4. Free internet.

The only thing I don't like is the location. It's far from the nearest MRT and the bus stop. So we had to take a taxi. But it's REALLY worth it!

Thank you so much, the hotel staff :)

Only stayed for one night but I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. Cleanness and presentation are their priority. WiFi works fine in the room. Location is also alright, less than 10min walk to the Paya Lebar train station. Shops are also all around the train station.

Faithful Travel Buddy and I (me 71, her close behind) lodged here for one week in March, 2015 as part of two months of independent travels in Southeast Asia. We thought the hotel's neighborhood on Joo Chiat road was one of the most fascinating we have ever visited. It's mixture of Malay, Indian, Vietnamese, and Chinese peoples, restaurants, and stores (this seems to be a major shopping area for Singapore's Islamic population) made this area, in our eyes, a worth while tourist destination in its own right. Great food all around. Sunday was particularly interesting; it felt like half of Singapore was shopping in the "hood." Access to the rest of Singapore was easy, about a 10-15 minute walk to the Paya Labar Metro Station (left out the hotel front door, left at the first light, a few blocks down turn right at the Starbuck's). The Singapore metro has to be the most modern and clean in the world, and it did not take much effort to learn how to use the metro and visit every place we wished in the City (two lines cross at Paya Labar; the Circular line is the one most tourists will use for just about every site).

The hotel itself is newly renovated, and like the rest of Singapore efficient and ridiculously clean (disclaimer, New Yorker writing this). Hotel is only 15 minutes or so from the Airport, making for easy and economic taxi rides to and fro. Room size was good, staff professional, bathroom tiny but clean and efficient, AC powerful but under user's control, quiet, elevators speedy, only the Internet was dodgy the week we stayed here -- some days not working at all, so we used the nearby Starbuck's on our way out in the am. No hotel restaurant, but plenty of breakfast options in the shopping center at the Metro station. In sum, this hotel is an excellent value option for independent travelers to wonderful Singapore, who are comfortable using public transportation and would enjoy staying in a unique local neighborhood.

Room Tip: Our third floor room was quiet.
