Great for the money, out of down town, but not too far from fabulous MRT system, this hotel is about a 10 min walk to Paya Lebar MRT( the most amazing easy way to get around Singapore, bought a 3 day pass to use any of the public system, such a safe clean rail system. Once you work it out, it is the way to go)
Quick check- in, had a room on the 3rd floor, good size room with window( kind of a view) some are without windows, but it seriously doesn't matter as we had the drapes closed the whole time, as was rather hot, so save yourself some money, so for a great budget hotel just over the $100 mark, as Singapore is rather expensive for accommodation, as we were out everyday taking in so many tourist places to visit, suited us, so great value.
No breakfast at this hotel, however there are many places to eat, not expensive for food.
The Champion Hotel, is in Joo Chiat Rd. very well known to this area, as up one end of the street is a predominantly Vietnamese restaurants, to your left of the Hotel, Moslem eateries, also while staying in mid July, scattered with what you would call tent city, the streets lined with vendors cooking some amazing foods, as it was the celebration of the end of Rummadam, this was so hectic, you could not believe the crowds, but it was fantastic to be there to view such a festivities. Also 7Eleven stores, fruit stores, shopping centre eateries all over the place, there is also a
Shopping centre opposite Paya Lebar ( MRT) McDonalds, etc. there is much around.
Cleaning in hotel was really good, sheets changed daily, good water pressure (shower) ample room for us, rather cool aircon, but as I said it was quite hot climate. Not a noisy hotel, fresh & clean, on the modern side, boutique,great free wifi.
Loved our stay would definetely choose the Champion Hotel on our next visit.
