Reviewed 25 August 2017

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from 11th August. The reception staff were very friendly and efficient .They greeted me with smiles each day. Check in was no problem. The room itself was ok for the price, as I know Singapore accommodation is expensive. I was actually surprised that the room was larger than I thought. It was kept very clean, as was the bathroom.

The only problem I had, was that the room was very noisy, as it was right on the main road on the 3rd floor. However, the road noise quietened down around 11pm, so I managed to sleep ok eventually.

If something could be done to lessen the noise, ie double glazed windows, this would improve the hotel a great deal.

The area itself was amazing. I loved that the train station was directly across the road, and you could then get anywhere in the city quickly. The incredible Mustafa centre was about 2 minutes walk away, and there were bars and eateries everywhere.

Overall, not too bad for the price.

Room Tip: Maybe a room at the back would be quieter. Not sure though

The hotel gets an extra point just because of the location, would suggest this hotel to only those who are looking for a place to sleep at night after an exhausting day of Singapore visit. The hotel is very basic with small rooms as usual in Singapore and no fancy stuff. Now let’s get down to the breakup:

Location – excellent, diagonally opposite to one of the exits of City Square Mall. To reach here take the MRT and get down at Farrer Park MRT, take either exit ‘H’ or ‘I’ (Exit ‘I’ will take you inside the City Square mall, but is more closer to the hotel). Hardly 3 – 4 minutes’ walk from MRT including road crossing 
Eating Options – no eating options within the hotel, but you get everything within 20 to 500 Meters of the hotel including street food, restaurants, cafes etc. In case if you still are looking for more options, City Square Mall is just in front.
Mustafa Market – is around 100 – 150 meters from the hotel, you get everything in this 24 hour super mart
Travelling to Singapore Attractions – Singapore has an excellent MRT and bus connectivity, as Farrer Park MRT in so close, just hop on to MRT to reach any of the tourist destinations in Singapore. Tourist pass is available at select MRT stations (including Farrer Park) which would cost you around 10 SGD, 16 SGD or 20 SGD for 1, 2 or 3 days unlimited rides in Singapore MRT and public buses respectively with an additional 10 SGD refundable security deposit, trust me these cards are huge boost for economic travel.
Hotel Staff – very nice and welcoming, they will answer all your queries regarding moving around in Singapore and sightseeing. Informative maps can be found at the reception.

Overall a good place to stay just because of the location and hotel staff.

Pros : Located in the middle of the major malls City Square and Mustafa Center. Easy access to food from City Square food court ground floor and 4th floor. If you need to keep your luggage earlier than the check in or after check out the hotel accommodate that too.
Clean rooms, Friendly Service

Cons : Rooms are small and even the bathrooms. We have lost perfumes from our baggage while it was in the room. So advice to keep all your valuables locked while you are out of the room. Wrote to the management on the item loss but no proper answer, just replied as I have informed after check out they are not in a position to check on my claim. Further same thing happen to another party who staid in this place.

Overall its a good place, Easy Access and a budget hotel.

Very close to farrer park MRT station (about 6 mins walk) and also not far from Mustafa centre. Several restaurants (including halal food) nearby which open until late night. The room was nice and clean but it would be even better if the room comes with a warm blanket. The hotel staffs also helpful and I can drop my baggage before check in time. Overall it's a good choice!

It's a basic hotel. Not fancy but not totally crap either, although it's not really worth the price despite being one of the cheapest hotel in Singapore. The place smells like a hospital which is kinda weird. But it has great location, close the MRT station and Mustafa Center. Actually the state of the hotel kinda improved our SG trip because it motivated us to explore the city as long as possible rather than cocooning in our hotel room.
