          the waiting timing for check-in to our room seems too long as it is not a peak season during my stay.

          Very good location for Boat Quay/Clarke Quay and the MRT to get around

          Looking at a blank wall from the bedroom window

          Excellent location, friendly staff, charming room.

          The noise from the night club next door did disturb my sleep. I had been warned, but it was worse than I'd expected. Pity, as otherwise have nothing negative to say.

        • Older travelers

          the rooms were well appointed with a nice shower and toilet

          there was construction noise, and we had paid for an early check-in, so we used the room during the day only as we were flying out at 11pm that night. we complained about the fact we were not notified about the construction next door when we booked a room for daytime use, and so was cheerfully refunded the early check-in fee. this review would've really canned the hotel, because we were quite upset about paying over $240 for a room that didn't suit our purposes, but the actions of the staff offering a refund of $86 (the early check in fee) changed our opinion that the staff were quite reasonable in this decision

          Forget the big hotels offering this and that , if you want great service , friendly staff , great location to Chinatown , Clarke quay and most important value for money , this just has to be the place in Singapore , thanks to Irene , James , and all staff for your 5 star service not forgetting "Mama"

          The location, quiet in surrounding.

          The staff at reception are not friendly at all. Staff is not possitively serving to the clients. Request for room serving at noon around had not fullfiled. Room is stuffy, small, air con is not cool at all. The noise from outside corridoor is loudly can be heard while in the room. The money spent is not worth for the facility and service.

          The location of the hotel is very good. It is not on the main road but easily accessible from bus and Metro.

          The rooms are small and some of them were sticking of smoke. There is an night club next door and it plays loud music till 2 am. This could be very disturbing

          The location of the hotel is located few minutes from the Clarke quay MRT and Clarke quay itself which is a nice place to go to for drinks. The breakfast is inclusive in the price of the room and it's quite basic. We like the free water bottles - easy to take for the day trip. There are complementary crackers as well.

          The wifi didn't work in our room, so we had to be at the lobby to be connected. Another thing was the noise of he house keeping in thd morning and the construction sight near by. We usually didn't hear it until we were awake, but it can be annoying.

          Great staff, reservation was waiting and accurate. Breakfast was a plentiful assortment of hot and cold foods. The hotel is clean and bright,room was a good size for two people with luggage and lots of hot water in the modern bathroom.

          Only one minor thing: The fan in the bathroom worked too well, and sucked sewer gas from the shower drain, causing room to smell of sewer gas. wet cloth over the shower drain when not in use.

          Very close from where i needed to go. Most of the staff was very smiling and nice with me.

          very tiny rooms. common bathroom near the reception was very very dirty (pee all over on the ground). Service not included on

          Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel is located close to Central, to MRT and Chinatown. Very convenient for a stopover.

          Dated decor in rooms and slight musty smell which became less obvious as time went on. Noisy airconditioning. Loud sound system from adjoining nightclub operated into the wee small hours.
