After reading negative reviews on TA about this hotel, I still decided to stay at this hotel because of the hotel location, the pool and the Singapore Express bus from and too the zoo passes this hotel. Another reason was, I am travelling with my husband and kids of 3 and 5 yo, and this is one of the few hotels in booking.com who stated "all children under 12 are free" I didn't want to pay extra bed for our kids.
It cost SGD 20 (incl tips) from the airport to this hotel. When we entered the hotel, yes there was an aromatherapy smell, which we get used to it on the next day. I asked to get the highest floor for our superrior room, and the hotel staff gave us room number 1128.
The room has just been re-painted, which made it look fresh. There are stained on the carpets, but not too many. The furniture looks so 80's but the LCD tv and also HBO, kids channel, made up the tired look of the furniture. It also has a great view to the city. The room is spacious for the four of us. We paid 350 sgd (excl tax) for our 2 nights stay for our superior room, incl breakfast and free internet. The free wifi is amazingly fast. The bathroom was ok. And we get free newspaper every morning. Breakfast was at the Indian resto on the 5th floor, it was very basic, and the resto looks very old. We enjoyed the pool, it was a very clean pool.
We didn't regret staying at this hotel at all, it is easy to access with bus and MRT. Bus stop "Victoria Street" are just outside the hotel with the tourist route such as: bus 133 to suntec, bus 145 to vivo city, bus 130 to little india, bus 175 from Lucky Plaza Orchard. From bus stop "North Bridge Complex" take bus 7 to Orchard. The SEX bus from and to the zoo stops at the hotel. It was very handy.
