Booked a triple room. The location is 3-4min walk away from Rochor MRT. You can see the hotel board from the MRT exit. Room was larger than mentioned. And bit spacious comparing to other similar hotels. Bedroom and bathroom was veru clean. Check in and check out was smooth. SIM LIM food court is about 7min walk away.

In a pinch, go for it. It's not terrible, but not first rate and doesn't pretend to be. Rooms are clean and straight forward. Walls are thin and not sound proof so you may hear some "exciting" sounds from the other clientele if you're lucky!

Went in at 10.30pm. Waited for 20minutes to get checked in. I have to wait the reception to see cctv as there is a indian couple have some issue with their room. In the end, I was told to sit and wait for 20minutes. The lobby was very crowded with 10+ people. In the end, I was given the smallest room on that level with no window.

Triple Room (Room 515)
May 24-28, 2017

The location was its strongest advantage. It was near the Rochor MRT. A mere 2-3 mins walk. There are also 3 bus stops that were near, about 2-3 mins walk also.

A convenience store is within the same building and other indian restaurants are nearby. A catholic church was also nearby (Our Lady of Lourdes) 5-7 mins walk. Mcdonald's (24hrs) and KFC (9-11pm) is a 10-12 mins walk.

The hotel in general was good. Sometimes the receptionist assigned was snob and not accommodating. Check-in was a breeze but you need to pay the whole amount already during check-in. Check-out was also a breeze, just handed the key back to the receptionist.

When it comes to the room, it was spacious and has a centralized aircon but it has temperature control. There were no cable channels, only watched CNN and Channel News Asia the whole stay. Beds are comfortable at least. The CR has bathtub and hot/cold shower. It can be improved by providing a anti-slip mat in the CR due to the slippery floor when someone's bathe.

One more thing, I've noticed they accept short-term stay like a motel. If this doesn't bother you, you can stay in this hotel.

Overall, it will pass as a decent hotel for the price paid.

Room Tip: Choose the higher floors

Hotel is third class, never go with family. They rent rooms on hourly basis to couples. Staff is very rude. All in all, hotel is not at all good. There are lot of other hotels nearby. Cleanliness is also a big problem.
