A boutique hotel along Joo Chiat Road. The room for triple occupancy is surprisingly spacious. The room is well decorated, well lighted and the bed is comfortable. All the basic amenities are provided by the hotel such as coffee and tea making facility, hair dryer, safe, tv, bathroom essentials, clean towels and a shampoo and body wash dispenser ( so you don't need to request for more if it runs out). The rooms are cleaned everyday (request needed) and free bottled water is replenished everyday as well. I love the clean smell of the hotel up to the room and yes, the hotel it self is clean and tidy.

The hotel staffs are accommodating and helpful. No communication barriesr as they speak english well.

Although the hotel doesn't have room service or in-house restaurant, getting food is no problem as there are a lot of restaurants along Joo Chiat Rd. Price Mart Grocery is just across the street for those who need to buy snacks, drinks or other items.

The nearest mrt station is about 10 minutes walk (Paya Lebar) but taxis can be easily reached right in front of the hotel.

What a great 'little' hotel, in the middle of everything. I emphasise little, as most hotels are little in Singapore. It had everything we needed and some things we didn't. Like a window, which opens, but isn't really necessary, as it is so damn humid in Singapore, you don't want the outside air inside. Nice clean, small bathroom with shower & toilet, shampoo/conditioner and shower foam provided. Coffee & tea making facilities, television (which we didn't watch, but assumed it worked). Free Wifi, complimentary water daily. No restaurant or room service, but the hotel is surrounded by supermarkets, food markets, restaurants, shopping, everything you could possibly need. We loved it and will stay there again.

Room Tip: If you are on the larger side, or very tall, I would recommend a "swing room"!

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.
