          The reception staff are very friendly. Pool was nice enough. Gym was ok - good enough for a few days.

          The rooms and appliances were quite dated. Some maintenance issues - leaking air conditioner and faulty TV - these were fixed upon request. Not walking distance to MRT or Orchard road - especially with young kids. Quite expensive for what you got but perhaps that's just the cost of accomodation in Singapore.

          Excellent facilities for a do-it-yourselfer as in adequately furnished Kitchen with Oven, Cooker, mw, Kettle, Toaster, sink etc, tv with good range of channles, dvd, Radio, well appointed, pay-as-you-go laundry, beautiful roof-top pool. I enjoyed all of that but if you're looking for room service and so-on, you'll need to go elsewhere! The staff are friendly and very effficient. I would recommend this hotel especially for long-termers and if self-catering is your major requirement.

          The mrt construction is noisy and disruptive to hotel access but it's not unbearable. Pity that the barbecue facilities aren't there as advertised.

          The location is near shopping and mrt, the 2br have spacious place, clean and good for family, we stay with my mums and kids and they love it, overall is good

          Now, not the best timing to stay there because of the closing of the road of bencoolen because of their building an mrt on that road, so impact of the noise of the constructions a bit annoying, and also we cannot find the lobby or the entrance because of the road close, we just drop in the parking lot and dunno where to go cause no body also in the parking from the hotel or direction/ information about the way to the lobby for check in. But for the rooms and the facility is great, only the noise from the contructions and the road close is a bit annoying. After or when the mrt contruction finish we definitally will come back and stay there.

          The construction in front of the hotel is not informed to the guest. We were socked, after we paid so much for the room that the massive construction is going on in front of the hotel. The hotel reception Is in the parking lot, and nobody was waiting. Wwe do ne tried to change the room for the less noise, but the staff make it so difficult to do that. Finally, we made it and got the basket for apologizing fr management. it is not recommended until the construcion done by end 2013.
