We stayed at Venue Hotel for five days from October 8 - 12, and it was a very good experience! We booked through Booking.com and stayed in the family room which is on the top floor. There are no windows, and we thought it would be suffocating but it wasn't. Staff was extremely helpful with whatever we needed. They gave...

Checked in here on a stopover. It is a small hotel and the room we had was tiny. There was barely room to open 2 rollaboard suitcases. We had to improvise by rolling a towel to stop the shower from wetting the entire bathroom floor. We are unused to wet bathroom floors which could be a norm for Asia. Location...

The staff were accommodating. Everyone of them! The rooms are small but spacious enough for packing and de-packing. It is very clean too! My family and I slept very soundly. One pillow per person but it's very conducive for sleep. We also enjoyed the radio on Channel 18 in the TV. They play nice songs. Considering the low price of...

Dear felix_choong1981, thank you for your kind words, the nearest parking is 2 mins away at Joo Chiat place or just outside our Venue Hotel the Lily (Coupon and applicable rates). We will be looking into the air con issue to fix it as best as we can! Thank you!

I booked a staycation at Venue Hotel The Lily and it was a pleasant one! The manager (Reyes) was very thoughtful and provided excellent service. We enjoyed our stay very much. I would definitely recommend this place as it is near many food places along Joo Chiat road, open till late night.

The area around the hotel has a few very good pubs within walkimg distance and does come alive. The value for the room is outstanding. Very good unexpected...

For a short staycay of 2, i would say it was ok. Not great but it was a pleasant stay. Love the concept of the room toilet and lobby. Need to add more channels on the tv. Overall it was 4 star rating.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Venue Hotel the Lily is a excellent choice for tourists and travelers who like to stay slightly away from the city centre to savour a taste of the Singaporean lifestyle. The hotel is priced very attractively although it is newly renovated, with most of the little indulgence one may not expect from a hotel in its priced category. All rooms are served with (complimentary) high speed wifi, with in room mini-fridge/safe etc. Just a few doors away, we have bakeries, local delicacies, Vietnamese restaurants, 24hrs convenient stores and supermarkets. The beach (East Coast Park) is just 10 mins by taxi, if the sun and sea could add to the joy of the stay. East Coast Park also offers seafood & other gourmet restaurants and other recreation activities (bicycle, roller blade rentals etc) Thus for a short relaxing holiday or an escape from the cold, Venue Hotel the Lily may just be your perfect hideout. ... more   less
