Modern, Clean and Good Service
I checked in a little bit early and was given my room before check in time. The receptionist was very friendly and service was fantastic. A modern boutique style hotel in a great area. The rooms and bathroom were small but for a solo is ample. I visit Singapore regularly and would definitely stay here again.

Not so pleasant experienced
Sleeping pillow with an unpleasant smell. Can easily hear any noises from next door.

Hotel lost booking...
Hotel is basic and clean which was as expected. Issue I had was they could not find my booking and just asked me to pay for a room despite me having the booking confirmation with me. After 20mins searching, they finally found the booking under an incorrect name which they agreed was their mistake. No real apology offered which made the whole experience very disappointing.

I can hear EVERYTHING!!
Absolutely no soundproofing whatsoever. If you want to stay in a place where you can hear the person in the next room zip up their bag, then this is the place for you.

Great Staff Make this Hotel Fantastic
Extremely comfortable bed in a central location. Only downside was the noise from the adjoining room but that wasn't the hotel's fault. Make sure to check out the comfy rooftop lounge area. Very helpful staff.
Gemma, au2 night trip
Fair 4.0
The location was excellent given the price point but unfortunately the floor was very dirty. If you are staying for the night only, then it is okay but i would not stay beyond that as there are no windows for my room and it was quite restrictive.

Stingy with the coffee. Only two packs of coffee for two people . No sugar no cream
