Meriton Hotel
Ranked #49 of 80 Singapore B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 February 2015

This hotel is well placed for Little India, the Bus station and the MRT.
The hotel provides room only. The hotel is damp and smells very musty.
We had a double ensuite room. I've seen bigger and better bathrooms in a 2 berth caravan....if you weigh more than 10 stone, expect a struggle to get onto the loo!
The room had no window, the walls were damp and mouldy. We were out all day and I the room served it's purpose, good quiet sleep, after we'd sorted out the baby cockroaches. The double bed was clean and comfortable.
The reception staff communicated in a series of grunts and there was no hint of welcome or friendliness about them.
We have been travelling for some time and always looking for budget accommodation, this is the lowest standard that we have encountered for the price.

Room Tip: Look for somewhere else!

We had the same experience as some one below. In the first two days we killed around 20 cockroaches in our room ranging from baby ones to large ones. The cleaner knew this was a problem and actually gave us some spray when he saw us in the corridor with the mini table they seemed to be coming from. The next days we killed a few more, bringing our total to approximately 30. On the walls, on the floor, on the bed, in the bathroom, where ever...they were there.

We were given a corner room which was considerably smaller than the other rooms so if you are still going here, ask to not be in the corner! It also meant the bathroom was very small, showering on top of the toilet. We would not return here.

friendly staff but unfortunately I have to agree with the "negative"reviews: bugs still there, smelly room. I got a room on the third floor, not too noisy. No stairs but it's fine with me I think this is due to the old building. Location is good though.

Mt third visit and I was not happy with the cleanliness and the service they offered me. From the front desk to the room was not a very present experience. The bathroom was not clean and the walls were mouldy.

The hotel is somewhat good. It's nice that my partner and I booked here and did not believe other reviews. The hotel is clean and so our room. We were given complimentary coffee everyday. Towels and toothbrush are provided but there's no shampoo and soap so we still bought it in the nearest Cheers store. It's 10-15 minutes walk to Bugis MRT and hawkers around. Rated this as 4/5 since shampoo and soap are not provided and you still need to ask the person at the lobby if you need a room service.
