Champion Hotel
Ranked #104 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 1 December 2015

After researching budget hotels in Singapore for a one night stay I came across the Champion Hotel, one of the reasons was the 24hr check-in as we arrived at 1:30am, other reasons were the good reviews on TA. The check in was easy and quick we were in our room in no time. The room was clean and comfortable, (note, the bed in our room was small, if you’re on the tall side your feet could hang over the bed-end) wasn’t a problem for us. I was impressed with this hotel; on checking out I asked to view some of the other rooms, the front desk had no hesitation in allowing us to view. There's no doubt we will return to this hotel. The walk to the closest MRT was less than 10 minutes.

We stayed here for two nights before a cruise. The location isn't far from the airport, but it is a distance from tourist attractions and the heart of Singapore. Fortunately, the subway is a ten minute walk. The boutique hotel is small, but modern, and it was very clean. We chose a room with a double and single bed and it was a decent size. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Cab drivers and locals haven't heard of the hotel so having the address handy was helpful.

Stayed for 3 nights in a large room containing 1 double and 1 single bed. Travelled as a couple with a 3 year old. Excellent value for money in a traditional area of Singapore which gives an insight into how the locals live. The staff were aways friendly and helpful and the hotel was very clean. Endless choice of hawker eateries within close proximity - food is cheap, delicious and you get the chance to eat as the locals do. Easy walk from Paya Lebar MRT. You can walk all the way down Joo Chiat Rd to the ocean where there is a great park for exercising or just relaxing by the water ( only takes 15 at brisk pace, 20 minutes if strolling). The neighbourhood is safe and would definitely stay here again.

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.

Stayed: November 2015, travelled solo
