I love the nostalgic feel and the history behind the hotel. Pleasantly surprised that for the rate I paid the bed and pillows was so cozy, bathroom and towels spick and span, the water pressure of the shower strong, AC and hot water worked perfectly. Very impressed. Will definitely come back.

Bedroom: lots of bedbugs, not big enough space for luggage to open in the corridor, locker can only keep 1 cabin size. Bathroom: unclean and old, faucet pressure too strong, smelly, toilet refill very slow. Overall: not going to come back, added to my first ever hotel blacklist. Not worth the price. My suggestion, unless you have seen it yourself and you're okay, don't book this.

It was late, we already tired and have late check in. First it was okay but then My room was suddenly out of electricity, but they didn't bother to check it. I went to the receptionist once, go back to 3th floor, still not on, back to receptionis and they give me another key to tried, went back to the room, still not working, back to receptionists to gave back the key, they offer change room but didn't give the key to the new room. Get back to 3th floor, pack our backs. Carry all our luggage to the receptionists, give the old room key, get the new room key, finally go to 4th floor to the new room, and the room doesn't even have the same size and services as the first but they didn't give us any compliment. Receptionists doesn't even get up from his place the entire time. Bad experience.

The place was good since it has large room. The only downside are the hallway is stuffed with dirty linens, there is less consideration on travellers, and late/slow room cleaning.

The staffs were superb, from the front desk, buffet, to especially the room service staffs were all professional and friendly. Our room 's great and good sized for Singapore standard. Buffet was OK with rotating/changin menus everyday. Location is great, exactly at a bus stop and close to MRT, with close access to Grab & Gojek pickup points as well.

About

About

Forget Orchard Road's glitz and Marina Bay's luxury. In Jalan Besar, you'll find a different side of Singapore–a vibrant, quirky district that's bursting with character. Believe it or not, Jalan Besar wasn't always the cool cat it is today. Back in the day, it was a swampy area filled with betel nut plantations. 

Fast forward a couple hundred years, Jalan Besar transformed into a melting pot of old and new. The beautifully restored shophouses lining the streets now house trendy cafes serving up delicious brunch and artisanal coffee. Independent bookstores rub shoulders with quirky art galleries, and hidden bars with neon signs beckon you in for a night out. 

But amidst all the hipster vibes, you can still find traces of the past. Heritage buildings stand proudly, and temples like the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple add a touch of cultural charm.

Jalan Besar is also a haven for hungry adventurers! Michelin-starred restaurants might be elsewhere, but here you'll find hidden gems serving up local delights at hawker centers. Think steaming bowls of laksa, fluffy roti canai, and plates piled high with satay–all waiting to make your taste buds dance happily.

This vibrant neighborhood promises a unique blend of history, hipster vibes, and delicious food.  Just remember, with its ever-changing nature, there's always something new to discover in Jalan Besar!
