              The hotel is in the middle of a major building site making difficult to get to by cab.

            • Great colonial district location, ochard road is near by and the hotel was not bad some kind of redecoration is needed. The staff are very friendly and the apartment is clean. Kitchen facility is good, the complimentary breakfast is sufficient for most people's needs and i also liked the kids pool at the roof level, and the nice little playground for kids.

              Not pleasant to stay and a bit noisy because of building work next door.

            • Good breakfast and location, near to bras basah mrt station, money changer cum convenient store. Nice for family stay, a home away from home and central to great shopping/eating district. Just walking distance from Bugis and the courteous staff.

              The road in front of the hotel was in renovation for subway development, the taxi direction also made a little be confusing and since the Bencoolen street was closed for cars. The rooms was too small.

            • The location was excellent and the costs were most reasonable. Front desk were superb and rooms were great. Fish pastry was good, the pools were wonderful and long enough for lap swimming.

              New train station construction work can be quite noisy at times, road infront of the hotel is currently closed and breakfast could be improved by having more variety food to choose from.
