The location of the hotel was excellent, just a few metres away from Chinatown shopping, Chinatown hawker food centre and the Chinatown MRT. The hotel room was small but clean and nicely decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful, gave great recommendations on food places. The only drawback was it had no elevator and our room was on the 3rd floor, so going up and down was a bit tiring. Would recommend a lower level room for people who hate stairs!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor if you do not like climbing stairs.

Dear Lsagah,

thank you for your positive review and we are glad you like the hotel and our service.

In fact, you came to the right hotel if you are looking for great food at cheap price which our team will surely be able to assist you on that which is all around the area and the staircase was deliberately built for mild exercise after great food!

Thanks again for staying with us and hope to see you soon

I loved the location of the hotel as it was in the heart of Chinatown and very close to the metro station. The rooms were quite small, but very clean and air conditioned. The service was good and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It is a good place to use as a crash pad at the end of a long day and only use it for sleeping. It is nicely decorated too.

Room Tip: Sound travels quite easily so try to choose a room away from the stairs. I have heard some rooms don't have windows either.

This is a cheap hotel. The rooms are small; there is no elevator.
So simply, it's not for everyone.

However!
It's easy to get to; close to MRT. It's in an interesting part of town; there's fantastic food nearby (head to the markets for a cheap local breakfast!).
It has a great little attitude to the place - on old fashioned historic feel that feels cosy and homely.
Most important of all; the service we had from everyone we talked to (3 people on the front desk) was uniformly superb! We had an issue with the airline when we flew in; and the staff at the hotel went out of their way to follow up with the airline for us while we were sleeping. After an update in the morning; they continued to follow up while we were out exploring the city; and then passed the information on to us when we returned in the evening. This kind of service seems so rare these days: I just wouldn't have even considered asking for the help that these guys offered.

So if you're wanting to find a place to "find the real Singapore", that isn't too expensive; and you're fit enough to carry your own bags upstairs - this is the place for you.

A small hotel in the heart of Chinatown with easy access to the Metro System and close to Downtown and the Bay area. Room basic but clean. Staff friendly and helpful, but rooms noisy I.e.noise form within the hotel, not outside.

Room Tip: Not the one next door to the man using a drill at 11.00pm!
