Excellent value for money

For £50 a night I was expecting a tiny room without a window. In the event I was upgraded to a room with a window and while it wasn't huge - two would have been a squeeze - it was plenty big enough for one. Very clean, quiet, good - ie interesting - location in Little India, not too far from the MRT station. Very helpful staff. Free wi fi. Much recommended.

Nice room for 3 people

Booked a room for 3 people. The price was reasonable. The room itself was nice and clean. The bathroom was okay, the only thing being that there was no separation between the shower and the toilet. There was also no place to keep the luggage when unpacking and our room did not have a window. Otherwise, the staff were very helpful and nice. For the price and location in Little India, it was a good deal.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

I think many people feel that the Little India MRT is the closest, but the Bugis MRT station is the same distance, if not closer. Using the Bugis MRT line, it's a straight line to the airport.

Exactly what they show.

The rooms are exactly what the hotel brocure shows. It's very basic, but it's also very clearn. This hotel was fairly new looking. If you want a budget minded launch pad for your daily activities in the city, this is the right place. Staff was helpful, and te room was quite dark for sleeping, and quiet. The rooms are small, but functional for 1 or 2 people.

Don't stay here

My rooms was not clean. The bathroom was dirty and tiny and there was no shower area. So once I showered, the entire bathroom get wet and was not usable for several hours. At least it's cheap.

Good Value, but NO Internet

I got a room with no window and no sound-proofing, which is OK for that price. People who complain about the size of their room seem to have never booked one in HK, or NYC, or Paris, or any metropolis really: they're all that size. However what killed it for me was the lack of Internet access. Although it is advertised, from the other reviews here and on the Web it seem pretty obvious they don't have one at all. So if you need to keep connected, avoid that one.

You are basically next to Little India. You can take a walk there in the morning, which you'll do anyway since there's no restaurant in the hotel.
