    The Staff is really nice and helpful .. the room is very clean even though there was some painting work in process but they were so professional not to make any troubles or disturbance .. and the location beside the bus station and train station was such a great experience to discover Singapore using their public transportations .. they deserve more than one star

    Talking about the family room, it wasn't really the same I saw in the photo provided!! Actually it was the double room with extra bed!! We had a hard time to fit ourselves walking in ~50cm aisle in front of each bed ..

    Not well located I found the hotel had a very bad odour attached to it both outside before u walked into the building and again inside. Did not find value for money and will not recommend.Prior to arrival I spent 10days in Bangkok in a 3 star rated hotel at a much cheaper cost and excellent conditions.

    Nothing - Bathroom too small - mattress uncomfortable (because of the vinyl) suggest u provide separate packs of coffee,sugar and milk. Wardrobe would be nice.too supplied with coat hangers.

    It was clean

    Hotel staff were not friendly or helpful - there was not taxi stand nearby, and when we asked the desk to call a taxi - they were more concerned with collecting money for the call that getting a taxi. Also - stat Wi-Fi - but no Wi-Fi available.

    It is cheap and walkable distance to Serangoon mrt. Has food court below and 7-11 store. Ok hotel for budget traveller and quick back packers. .

    Rooms are too small. Can only be recommended for single or bachelor. Not a place with kids beacuse of room size.

    I like the location.

    I don't like the staff in the reception. They are very cold. They seem don't know the meaning of what hospitality is.

    Very good

    Should review/implement better perks for regular patrons. I patronise every weekend, any perks provided? ? :)

    Guest rating

    I like the location, because it was located between 24hour store and restaurant. It was surrounded by residential houses so it was quite nice

    The Hotel cleanliness is quite poor. They should upgrade their quality of bedcovers and towels

    The receptionist was cold . Very anxious to collect money even before check-in. However ,I highlight that I did request for earlier check-in time around 12pm during my booking in the internet. He simply pointed to the rules in the internet booking printout and insisted that check-in was 2pm. I was very upset and wanted to withdraw from the stay. After some observation, I realised that he was letting the rooms out for transist guests.So I decided to approach him again. He finally agreed reluctantly to try to check me in hopefully around 1pm. Anyway , I was finally relieved when he gave me a room at 12:30pm. Nevanertheless , I enjoyed the stay and would certainty appreciate a more polite and helpful receptionists.

    Fabulous

    Calm place and near to Public Transports. Also, some good eating joints near by.

    Aircon Control not in the room. It is with the reception.
