Reviewed 15 November 2015

We stayed for 1 "night" from the morning to 9.30pm after disembarking from a cruise and before catching a flight. The location is a bit of a walk from the MRT station but easily accessible by taxi. The foyer is pleasant and gives a calming effect. The staff were polite and took our luggage into secure storage as we used the free wifi. We had declined the offer to pay extra for early access (normally 2pm) and after spending almost an hour catching up on emails etc. they kindly gave us a room. we were most grateful. Sure it was on the road where traffic noise was heard but at least it was spacious, very clean, lots of TV channels (including english), a great shower and comfortable bed, easy to use lighting system and air conditioning that was adjustable AND worked. Taxis frequent the street at all hours and we got one within the minute for our 20 minute (S$16) trip to Changi airport.
On a future visit we would request a quiet room. It is easy to see why the hotel gets a high rating.

About half way between the airport and Down town Singapore. Singapore hotels are insanely expensive and thus is a great budget hotel. A variety of rooms to suit all budgets. I stayed in the smallest which at 13sq metres is actually surprising spacious and oh so cute. No windows which when you are trying to sleep is actually a bonus!!

The area is surrounded by genuine 'real Singapore' restaurants, shop and karaoke bars. 30 minutes walk to a bigger mall.

$20 from airport via taxi and $15 to the city or $2 on the MRT which is a 5 minute walk away.

A little noisy at night mainly from the closing of the heavy doors to the rooms but I always have earplugs on me so slept through.

Rooms are clean maintained and suffice for a couple stay.
Clean neat bathrooms.
Digitally locked safe closet to keep valuables.
We can not get a clear view outside window. All you can see is the apartment's another wall. So dont opt for a window room if you are expecting a view out of window. (There are extra charges for window room)
You get singapore attractions info brochures at the reception.
You get internet facility at reception free of cost and wifi in the room.
There is a small fridge which may remain unnoticed if you dont take efforts to find it.
Considering whole busy day in singapore attractions, it is good hotel for cozy night stay.
Location of hotel is good. Not crowdy. Taxi stand in front of hotel. Bus station on 3-4 minutes walk.
Metro station is 20 minutes walk. So we used to prefer bus to reach metro station.

Hotel was very clean and the room contained all the basic amenities required. Bed was very comfortable. The three person room does not contain a window, but this was known before I made the booking and was perfectly fine.

The closest MRT station was around 10-15 minutes by walk. Several convenience shops can be found nearby the hotel or the MRT station, which offer several options for breakfast. Also not very far away from the airport (around 20 min by taxi).

Definitely recommend it, since all major attractions can be reached by MRT.

Champion Hotel in Joo Chiat Road was my choice for my last night in Singapore as I had to be at the airport early.

The location is about 10mins walk from the MRT (Paya Lebar) and a 20 minute SGD18 taxi trip to the airport.

The room was clean & the bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly & very willing to help.

If you are on a budget & need a clean safe overnight conveniently close to the airport, I'd suggest Champion.
