Jayleen 1918 Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We booked a room for three nights and were given a very tiny room without a window. The room was so stuffy that we had to have the air conditioned all night. No room for luggage and hardly any room for sitting. It was very annoying. When we asked for another room we were told to pay more for it. I think the room we were given is not fit for any traveler in any hotel.
Hotel is average. Rooms are really small and they just try to adjust more single beds in those small rooms. Location of the hotel is awesome thats the only reason one can choose this budget hotel. Hotel staff asks you to come down with jug for water refill by yourself and they even ask my friend to wash cups to reuse by herself only which was weird.
I stayed for a period of 2 weeks on a business trip. The staff is courteous and will try to help you as much as they can. The rooms are small but cozy and you wouldn't feel claustrophobic. Although the sheets are not the cleanest but the housekeeping staff does their best. The only negative thing about my room was the ants in some areas of the room. I had complementary breakfast along with my stay, and the breakfast was merely passable- they did not have placeholders for the dishes, the food was mostly cold and the taste was also okayish. Nothing to compare with the buffets in other hotels such as Novotel etc. Given the amount of money these guys charged, I would have expected a lot better. The Wi-Fi also started acting up sometimes with very low speeds (couldn't even open email) but most of the time it was okay. The location of the hotel is perfect, walking distance from everywhere- offices, Clarke Quay and MRT station.
Hotel location is exceptional - very central and close to financial district – this is the main advantage! And we can mention the effort to maintain the hotel, an refurbished old house. But the hotel is tired even with all efforts, room very small - for this size - price is too high (we understand is Singapore), breakfast should be improved, WiFi is hopeless - v slow. Special mention for the staff: very friendly and helpful attitude.
Great location, just two minutes away from the Clarke Quay shopping centre and MRT station. I was impressed with customer service. WiFi in our room was not working properly so they sent quite a few people including the owner to fix the problem. Hint: take the lift to the roof top in the evening. The views of the area are great.
To summarise: - THERE ARE FLEAS!!! - grey towels with stains, I don't even want to know what it is - hairs under the sheets I had to change hotels at 1am due to all of the above. It is not even about quality or preference (the hotel staff kept trying to say "...if you don't LIKE our hotel..."). When a place does not meet minimum hygiene standards and is a threat to your health (fleas and dirty sheets and towels) I don't think it is about "like" or "dislike"!
Stayed in July after no room in the Jayleen Clerk Quay, so glad we got transfered there as it was a pleasant stay. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly, great location everything you need nearby. Rooms are small but ok as you don't need a big room as your out most of the time. I would stay there again but would book into the sister hotel Jayleen 1918 is much better
Very pleasant and welcoming staff. Good location. The basics are all there, and all-in-all Jayleen 1918 Hotel is excellent value for money. Wi-fi VERY slow. Watch out for the shower curtain - don't hide behind it while you turn on the tap as the curtain is more mesh than curtain, and I got soaked! I found it amusing.
Stopover and randomly booked into this hotel on the way back to US. It was a quite small hotel and the room was very high in humidity which made the stay worse. Definitely no view from the room... The bathroom was not so good as well. For a $100 USD per night hotel, I think it needs to be better.. Maybe the location takes 50% of the room rate, since it is convenient.
The accomodation is just average. The room is very small with a double cot bed and study table. They have a wash basin next to the cot which is kind of annoying. But the place is located near to singapore river in clark quay which is less than a 10 mins walk. Clark quay / boat quay is one of the best places to hang out in the evenings. 😉
