Reviewed 27 July 2016

I stayed four nights at this hotel on 18 July. This was my first time staying in this area. The location is good, many eating places and shops nearby plus a shop selling a variety of fruits. Taxi is easily available. The room I stayed in on the fourth floor is clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely will come again.

The hotel is situated in Geylang a residential neighborhood, there are plenty of local shops, cafes, restaurants near by as well as a shopping mall which is great. There's a supermarket in Tanjong Katong Complex which is about 8 minutes walk. The closest MRT station is Paya Lebar (on the green/yellow line) is approx 12 minutes walk.
The room might be a bit small for some but we were out most of the day so it doesn't really matter but the bathroom was small so if you are slightly larger than average you might struggle to get in and out.
My only problem with this hotel is that you can hear when next door is having a shower which could be noisy if you are in bed early.
Overall the hotel is cheap and cheerful as well as clean, so if you are on a budget this is the place to be.

We recently spent 6 nights at this hotel, it has a great location, close to some excellent shopping and food outlets. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Check in and checkout were fast and efficient. It is close to MRT and bus transport although taxis and Uber are cheap in Singapore if you need to travel away from the area. The hotel also has washing facilities.
The room we had was not large but it was adequate because we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. we had no issues with out side noises.
The only thing that would stop us from returning to this hotel was the quality of sleep, we found the bed very uncomfortable and lacked a good nights sleep. Maybe next time we will try the tatami room. The hotel prices out way any negatives, great value for money in Singapore.

Room Tip: A window room upgrade is probably not worth it.

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.
