An enjoyable experience for my first short stay in Singapore. Being located a short distance(approx 11km) from changi international and less than $60 for a last minute booking I would have been crazy not to take up that offer. The hotel is modern, clean, and presented well with freindly staff, although if one was to be picky the single bed... More

This was a good choice as the bathroom is the best we have experienced in this class of hotel. Our room, as expected' had no windows but was clean and comfortable. It also had a small fridge and some... More

The hotel is located at less than 15 miniutes from the airport and is a good value for money. The rooms are small but clean and not too noisy. The area is not touristic and the hotel does not serve breakfast, but you cannot expect too much for a budget price.

Hotel it's located 10 minutes walk from the train station. Staff are very helpful and the room are clean with plenty of room. Would highly recommend it for your cheap stay in Singapore. And it's a 15 minute walk from the beach with plenty of food options on Joe Chiat road.

Great modern rooms suitable for stopover. Great front desk service. Price was great. Everywhere is about a $10 cab fare so beats staying in high end of town. Close to airport and east coast park. Would recommend

Neighbourhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighbourhood is packed with colourful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
