Literally you get what you paid, but with this price we could have better experience. I don't mind the accommodation here, but this hotel do NOT have hot water, very weak wifi if you don't want to say NOT AT ALL, don't even have the fridge, and the toilet stinks

Room space, cleanliness and things provided were good enough. If hotel provides a little fridge, it'd be even better. WiFi speed needs improvement. Location is more than 15 minutes walk from MRT, and it's not near with any bus stop.

It was pretty far from the city and the hotel was located in a red light district. But despite all of that, the personnel was great. They helped...

Near bus station. Clean room. Accomodating hotel staffs. Infront of 7/11 convenience store. Many hawkers food stall outside the hotel. Near Joo Chiat mall where you can buy your needs. (-) Points: They clean up our room without our advise. Limited channels on television. But we still enjoyed our stay.

In general, accommodation is very good as well as booking is very flexible. It located in silent area without any noise in night time. Staff in front desk were familier to guests and cooperative. I'll recommend more friends to choose this hotel in future.

Staying in Joo Chiat

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.
