      Bath rooms need maintenance (wash stands, paint, etc)

    • Family with children
      6.2

      Location to abundant Moslem food outlets (Halal eateries) with a wide variety to choose from as the Hotel is just across the street from Geylang Serai Market. Rooms are clean and well maintained with adequate basic facilities as expected of a hotel within that price range.

      Lingering smell of cigarette smoke filled the air which is really unpleasant and it triggered my asthmatic attacks during sleep at night. Room to room phone calls had to go through the reception instead of being able to dial directly. Some rooms had no windows (coupled with enduring the cigarette smell) !

    • Group of friends
      4.6

      good location. many food stalls nearby and supermarket..

      room too small with no windows. bedlinen too small.

    • Couple
      6.2

      it was just walking distance from Paya Lebar MRT Station (EW8/CC9)

      i did not expect the superior room would be soooooo small.

    • Family with children
      9.6

      The price is within our budget, but yet the service and facilities is much more better than our expectation

    • Group of friends
      5.8

      There are lots of restaurants and shops around the hotel.

      I was not inform (upon booking) that the room does'nt has any window.

    • Single
      5.8

      Probably because the buidling itself is old, the condition of the room and facilities such as the air conditioning is bit run down. But you get what you pay for. It's a budget hotel, don't expect anything fancy or super comforts.

    • Single
      4.2

      None. It was a 1 night stay and i didn't analyse so much as to which hotel i should bump into.

      The room given to me was right in front of the lift lobby. No comfort and privacy there. Yes, the staff initiate to upgrade my room from a superior to deluxe room. However, i still need to pay the extra charges. Instead of paying S$76 which i had booked online, i ended up paying S$89.50. Wonder if this is their Upselling practice.

    • Single
      7.4

      This location was great for the airport - about $15 Singapore taxi fare. Fairly welcoming front desk staff however a bit indifferent.

      The bed was a plastic coated mattress, which while good for honeymooners, was very hot and sticky.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      nearby shopping area & hawkers centre, easily access to town.

    • Older travelers
      3.8

      Location maybe..

      Room is just too small, not comfy as well. No value for money.

    • Older travelers
      8.0

      Location is superb - straight from airport on MRT and a 5 minute walk. Also the neighbourhood on restored buildings gives a hint of Singapore as it was when we first visited in the 1970s. Food court opposite adds to this.

      We would like price advertised to be exclusive i.e. include taxes in overall price not add these on after giving a price.

    • Group of friends
      5.0

      Halal food and late nite supper is available nearby easily.

      1. The room is without window. 2. Bathroom tiles and door were very dirty.

    • Older travelers
      3.8

      Location was very good

      Mould, dirt, size of room. Noise security Much better hotels in area by same group ( Hotel 81)

    • Family with children
      5.0

      For a muslim, easy to get halal foods at this area. The location is good and the hotel rate affordable.
