Good value for money
Great staff e awesome location, very close to Chinatown MRT station (exit F or E). Room was nice, small as expected, but there are two things I did not like: 1. No window in the room, a noisy fan in place 2. Although bathrooms and all facilities very clean, the rug inside the room was not, lot of long hair, certainly not mine! I did like the good air conditioner and washer/drier facility (self service, S$3 each). Breakfast was simple but consistent, with cereals, cooked eggs, bread/toaster, fresh orange juice, milk, coffee and fresh oranges.

Overall a good cheap stay in Singapore :)
Our stay was great, couldn’t of picked a better hotel (3 minute walk to Chinatowns MRT). Staff were friendly and room was comfortable. There appeared to be a few people waiting for showers in the morning, but we did this on the evenings so didn’t affect us. To be expected and didn’t bother us, but be aware that the walls are very thin, so you can hear a lot going on outside your room. Breakfast was basic: cereal, toast and spreads, hard boiled eggs, hot drinks and juice. Enough to start the day, but a little repetitive after a few nights :)
