my family had a wonderful stay at your hotel. Its very clean, nice view from above.The skypark is very visible..The location is very near the mrt station and walking distance to Sacred Heart church...the staff are accomodating. My Kids loved the room we occupied. It's spacious and the bathroom is clean .However, we find the lobby so simple with no place to sit. I highly recommend your hotel to other travellers. For family of 5 get the executive room and you will never regret. Your stay in singapore will be a memorable one. Book now!

We recently spent 3 nights at the YWCA and really enjoyed our stay. It’s a very clean and reliable hotel. Big pool. There was hardly any noise from the renovations (we were on the 9th floor) and the rooms are nice and simple – no problems. We had a late night flight and the hotel had a secure room for our bags to stay after we checked-out.

The best thing about the hotel is its location. It borders the park and we were easily able to walk to Clarke Quay in about 10 to 15 minutes. In the other direction, Orchard Road and all that it offers (e.g., Starbucks, restaurants, shopping) is nearby and easily accessible by foot depending on how far you want to walk. We spent most of our time walking Orchard Road and even felt safe coming back late at night around midnight. Public transit is also readily available as the hotel is a short 5 minute walk from the Dhoby Ghaut station. The directions we found to the hotel from Dhoby Ghaut from other travelers were very helpful and worth repeating – take the Park Mall exit and go towards the Park Mall building on the left; enter the building and take the elevator down to the 4th floor; exit the 4th floor to the parking structure and the hotel is directly in front of you; go left to exit the parking structure and walk around to the front of the hotel (it really is a lot easier than it sounds).

We stayed here because it was one of the cheaper options for the area. It is a nice, dependable hotel. We easily recommend it and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Singapore hotels are expensive, but this one is quite reasonable (especially as I got a free upgrade, which was nice of them). The rooms are clean and comfortable, and it has a good location near a park and museum -- great place for a stroll. The swimming pool is more utilitarian than lush and exotic, and the food in the restaurant is OK rather than fine dining. The staff are all very helpful. Happy to recommend it.

we been to singapore and stayed at ymca fort canning lodge, the front desk was an indian national the manager, he was so nice we just get a standard room but we arrived 11 am so the room was not available, but we said its our first time here so we want to maximize the time without any longer conversation he upgrade us to executive room without extra charge.The room is spacious and there is almost everything you need. for the socket go to little india at mustafa mall is only 2 singapore dollar, dont buy at 7 eleven its 7 dollar. In the morning breakfast is serve already by 630am buffet style there is western, filipino and chinese dishes to choose from. Beside the hotel is park mall enter and rode elevator to ground floor, then cross the street you can see the dhouby gaht subwaystation where you can ride to orchard road, to singapore zoo, to universal studio, raffales city and marina bay. The best part for me in singapore is, to walk to singapore flyer then connect to double helix bridge to marina sands and bay and end at esplanade its a relaxing moment go there around 4pm, try to eat at hawker area at the singapore flyer more clean and safe dont forget to try the bbq stingy ray, that the only one i try that is delicious, then take esplanade subway back to hotel. Always remember choose hotel near subway for any travel...

Room Tip: for the room just choose the basic one because your always out
