Pleasant, affordable hotel. Located within walking a 10 to 20 minute from the city centre, attractions & shopping malls. Room was spacious, well furnished, but a bit old. Price was affordable. They got a pool and a restaurant but the restaurant was closed during my stay there.

The hotel is old no denying that. They have closed down the restaurant which means that they do not provide breakfast. I thought that was a bummer till I saw the room. It was amazingly big for the price we paid and comparing to all the hotel rooms I have stayed in before this, I must say this hotel room... More

It is located in a good location. It is within walking distance to the St Paul's Hill, A Famosa and Jonker Walk areas. There is no need to drive if one can cope with walking. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food served for breakfast is also good.

The room was of good size and adequately equipped. The bathroom was alright with the shower over the bath tub, which was not securely fitted, This resulted in some unexpected movement when having a shower, which was a bit unnerving. Breakfast was pretty basic with a very limited selection. However the cheerful staff did offer to proveide freshly cooked eggs!

Whilst it is fair to say the hotel is a bit tired the rooms are a good size and very clean with comfortable fittings. Every day we had new clean sheets,towels and toiletries. Being from Europe we can struggle with some of the more Asian type of breakfast this was recognised by the owner who had the kitchen make us... More

This hotel is run by my father. It doesn't look like much, but the rooms are really good. I have stayed there before. If you have any complaints, please send them to me. I am in charge of the complaints and hope you will come again. Thank you.

“The soundproofing is quite good, but better to go for a higher floor away from the road, which is busy all night.”

“Don't bother to stay in a suite unless you love a spa bath, all the rooms are large but in a suite you also get a spa bath. We had one but didn't use it - wouldn't be surprised if it didn't work very well anyway!”
