We stayed here due to the price (approx SG$100 a night) to balance the budget after earlier extravagance and it worked nicely giving us access to parts of suburban Singapore most tourists miss.
MRT is 10-15 mins walk and from there it is only SG$2, 18 minutes to Singapore CBD/Clarke Quay or get a taxi for only SG$14.
Room: Clean, functional, enough room for 2 suitcases which is an excellent size for this type of hotel.
The walls in this hotel are thin even on the highest 4th floor and we were woken from our sleep. We had 2 nights of 3am singers next door and could hear a couple a few doors down. The air conditioning had to keep being turned on and adjusted. However, the staff were friendly, helpful and very good with our requests.
No restaurant but there is a old convenience store downstairs and many eateries nearby. For the real local experience, go to well known Haig Road (2 blocks walk). For western food the OneKM shopping centre (3 blocks walk on Geylang Rd) has a wide range of choices with some surprising upmarket brands for shopping.
