Champion Hotel
Ranked #104 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 16 February 2016

The Champion Hotel was a great finding. The room was small, but had its own shower. The room was very clean and nice looking. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Train station was a bit of walk, but safe.

For the second time this month I spent two nights in Champion Hotel, Singapore. With prices going nuts in Singapore these days, I was very pleased to stumble on to this small hotel in Kampung Malay. The street is full of Muslim shops and Chinese restaurants. Further up the street in direction of East Road there are even a few great Vietnamese restaurants. Everything is affordable. The hotel is near the Paya Lebar tube station. You can be downtown in under 30 min. The hotel is friendly, modern, very clean, and outstanding value for money. I will return for a third time end of March.

I had a short (about 12 hour) layover in Singapore between flights, and since there didn't seem to be any reasonable options out by the airport, I booked here. Overall, it was actually better than I expected. The room was very clean, staff were friendly and accommodating, and the price (just under USD $70) was about as cheap as you'll find in Singapore. The room had no windows, but given how short my stay was, I didn't really care. It was a nice place to sleep. However I'm not sure I'd want to spend a week here, and for a long stay I'd probably pay a bit more for a more comfortable room. I'd stay here again though.

Quick check in, front desk efficient but not overly friendly, housekeeping good.
Close to airport
15 min walk to Joo Chiat Complex.
Lots of cheap Asian food available, Western options more sparse esp breakfast ( not open till 10am)
a/c difficult to adjust, bed 6ft only - don't be taller but firm, more TV channels needed
Probably 3 days is maximum - if stopover = perfect

Room Tip: Basic room for a basic price - good value for Singapore

Very well renovated, modern touches, clean and spacious by Singapore standards. Convenient location to local cuisine in Rococo-style shop houses, the old world charm of Joo Chiat area and the Malay/Muslim experience of Geylang. Walk to nearest metro station at Paya Lebar MRT is 10 minutes which connects to the rest of Singapore. Good wifi service.

Room Tip: Value for money for a 20 sq m room.
