Swap to Malay the time of the incident in front of front desk receptionist work on 4/6/19 at 2015hrs workers are very rude, requesting additional money for no reason and not displaying receipts for this payment is very incorrect is this practice every day ?? does the front desk worker always pay more and do not state the reason why our fate is so good that it is not fooled by the worker .. it's like a gangster !! is this the way the service for guests staying here ?? I hope the top management will take firm and hard action on the golden-haired Chinese man !! act as though he had a big hotel but this is just a 81.?! how was the receptionist's service very bad third class !! hope the hotel take action not to give it to others

This hotel is great if you're on a budget and you're here for just a couple of nights. Not exactly an ideal hotel to be staying at if you're here for a long time though. Anyway, the hotel room is small but enough room for 2 people (for a 2-guest bedroom) and 3 people (for a 3-guest bedroom). There is a vanity table with a chair, a small TV and a small closet. It was quite comfortable and the environment wasn't noisy (quite peaceful, actually). The toilet was really small so if you're really stocky, you might have a hard time. Overall, everything was okay and this hotel is considered to be one of the more affordable hotels in Singapore.

This place was on one of the main roads towards the Airport not in downtown Singapore area. Needed a place to stay for a couple of days that wasn't going to cost a small fortune in Singapore. The room was small, clean and the staff was OK. It had free wi-fi "good", Had a small bar fridge and cable TV. The shower and toilet were combined. Room had Aircon If you want cheap accommodation for a short period this is great.
