I looked for the convinience hotel in singapore but in a budget after my last trip I use the 5 star hotel in orchard. But in this hotel I fell the comfortable in different theme of hotel. This is compact hotel and the design looks good. The staffs are nice, and even though we have no breakfast here we can go to buy meal around hotel, there are some halal foods. I will be back again with pleasure.

Rooms ok. TV didn't work at all. Noisy. Good if you fly in fly out. Awesome Malay food around the corner.
Would only stay again if late arrival for overnight only.
Stayed here also due to proximity to Geylang Serai market, but it was closed in the evening. Unless you want an authentic Murtabak or Roti Canai or other Muslim Malay food delights, or a sleezy 'red light pub', there was nothing going for this area apart from proximity to airport.

We stayed in the Champion when passing through Singapore and we're looking for a nice reasonable priced hotel close to the airport. The cost of a taxi varies depending on time of day or night but it was $25.00 SGD for us and much cheaper when leaving.

When we checked in they had given us a room with three single beds. This was not what we were expecting, after a quick chat with reception they offered us two new rooms each with a double bed at no additional cost.

The rooms are very clean and the shower was superb both hot and excellent pressure. We asked for breakfast to be included in our stay and that is served in the restaurant next door. We ordered a traditional English style breakfast and the plates were full to overflowing (great for someone who likes to eat).

The staff were excellent and very helpful, they provided advice on where to go and what to see around the neighbourhood. As described previously by others it is a short walk to the MRT and around $2.30 to catch a train to Orchard Rd from Eunos station.

We would definitely stay there again when stopping over in Singapore for a short stay. Hope this review helps.

This hotel is located a 10-15 minute walk from the MRT. There are places to eat all around the hotel. Our room had no windows and there were few channels available on TV, but the hotel was clean and safe, the staff were friendly, and the location was reasonably close to public transportation. For a private room with an attached restroom this hotel represents a good value.

Stay during 28-29th Aug 2016. The room is small but clean. Everything is alright. However, when my hubby wanted to shower in the next morning, the water was still cold. Same to me n my daughter. Till the 11am+, only the water turned hot. Besides, when my hubby wanted to enquire sth at the front desk around 10am, 29th Aug, the staff was busy talking over the phone and just ignoring my hubby. We understand that the guest (I guess) on the line is important but the staff should also pay attention to the guest at the front desk. It's either to ask the guest in front to wait for a while or ask the other staff to come out and help. Please also note that the parking is located just right behind the hotel.
