Champion Hotel
Ranked #104 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 23 July 2016

After reading dozens of reviews we chose the Champion hotel for price and their good reviews. The hotel is about 12 minutes walk from the rail station, and once aboard only 10-12 minutes to town, great rail system once you get used to it, completely automated and spotless. Any amount of eateries very close, no dining at the hotel, always easy to get a meal somewhere. The staff were very helpful and considerate, even after we had turned the hot water off by mistake. (In with all the light switches is one marked heater that can be turned off if you are not careful).
The room was an excellent size, and everything worked as it should, lovely shower and toilet facilities, and the room kept very clean, we stayed for 5-6 days.
The only down side was our room window faced down on to and eatery that was open until late, no undue noise, but plenty of bike traffic, and chatter, and then opening up again about 7am was noisy, ( steel shutters ). The staff offered us another room, but is was smaller, so we settled for the noise which we got used to after the first two nights.
Singpore is very expensive for accommodation, but we found this hotel to be value for money. All in all a good stay, clean, and lovely staff, as for the noise, it is high density Singpore, so it is the same almost everywhere.

Beautiful property! I was impressed by the lobby area and the room and bathroom were clean and a decent size. However, I have to give this hotel a 3 because the walls were so thin that you could hear every time someone was in the hall. My husband and I had a difficult time sleeping because of this. It didn't help that our room was right across from the elevator.

Room Tip: The inside room we had was above the lobby and across from the elevator. It may help to get a room w...

I was quite happy with our stay. The hotel is simple but the rooms are good for the size with desk. Bathroom is clean and serviceable. There are some decent restaurants and a night market in the neighborhood. I would be happy to stay again.

The place and room was satisfying no doubt. But 1 particular reason only its the front office during the morning shift. She practically shouted at me and my friend for taking her sweets at the reception area. The sweets was indeed for guest. I didnt get her name. But pls revised on this. Front desk should be professional in entertaining guest or people not this kinda attitude. It will turn people off.
