Champion Hotel
Ranked #104 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 11 July 2015

This beautiful, new hotel is located in a predominantly middle eastern area of Singapore. The rooms are well sized and has a great bathroom. The room and hotel look very new. The hotel is close to most major attractions but you most certainly need a taxi. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful.
I would recommend this hotel. The price and room size is probably one of Singapore's best value hotels!
Internet is free and fast!

Room Tip: I would recommend a room that doesn't face the main street - people were loud late at night and...

Hotel was clean, and alright considered Singapore hotel mostly are expensive , I stayed one night for over night transit, near the airport, around 20$ taxi from airport, if you're going back to hotel it will only cost like 15$ because there's no additional charge. Downside is mrt station quite far, around 1km. It is located near like a night market, so you can see a lot if you want to go shopping, it is near moslem area , so if you're one, it will be easy for you to have moslem food and clothes.

We stayed at the Champion Hotel on 2 nights. Well placed about 15 minutes from the airport and just off Changi Road.
Our first night on arrival, the aircon was not working so we were upgraded to a king room. Very spacious with a sitting area and large bathroom. The room was on the street side and was noisy - I always carry earplugs so that did the trick.
Our second night we had a queen room which was small but adequate. The door entrance had a weird configuration as to either enter or exit you had to stand in the bathroom to fully open the door. The other disappointing thing was that although the hotel is relatively newly renovated there was a lot of mould in the shower and behind the basin.
There is a great supermarket opposite and a very good bus service into the city on Changi Road. The metro is a fair walk especially when it is 30+ degrees and extremely high humidity.
Overall a good value hotel with very good staff.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Joo Chiat Road are quieter.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights as part of our holiday/ my birthday visit. Our room was clean, and quiet. We arrived at midnight the first night and we were greeted immediately by a friendly front desk person. On a couple occasions we interacted with the front desk. They were quick and friendly each time. The surrounding area provides a good selection of food stands and markets. We found the MRT station and bus routes easily. It was exactly what we wanted a nice hotel at a good value. You can spend more to get more "luxury" but this place is perfect if you want a nice place to sleep and relax in between adventures into the rest of the city.

We chose the suite room as it had a lounge area as well and windows and was spacious for a hotel in Singapore. Not located right in the tourist area however the MRT station Paya Lebar is only a 10 minute walk and from there you can go anywhere you wish.
The hotel has been well renovated and the decor is up to date, however there was no compendium in our suite and the TV stations were not working properly even after getting an assurance from Reception that it would be fixed for our return trip 4 days later, it was not!!!
There are many great food halls right around the corner with so much food to chose from and also a supermarket just across the road.
We would definitely stay here again as we loved the location and mixing with the friendly locals and enjoying their culture.

Room Tip: Chose the suite room if you want a window and space
