The hotel was so dirty and looks like hasn't been cleaned for a long time! So many hair and dust everywhere and especially on the floor. And still have some of the urine mark on the toilet sit. It's just too dirty! And I requested for a new room which is no different. Still dirty somehow. I was so surprised because this hotel having SG Clean logo and wasn't expected to be this dirty like those normal cheapie hotel around 😡🤔 and I forgot to snap a pictures.

The hotel only provided one small bottle water in the room. Pillows too hard and the room was too cold. Not worth it with the price

Location is great if you prefer on using the bus for your stay. Bus stop and convenience stores is right outside the hotel The room is okay since we didn't stay that much inside anyway. Accommodating staff and let us check in early. The wifi has a good connection also :) We just don't like that the room and even some of the towels smells like smoke. Even if its a non-smoking room. There's this weird smell coming from the bathroom also, though the smell is tolerable we still need to spray some perfume inside our room. A bedside table would be helpful also.

I stayed for 5 days at this hotel, the room and toilet was clean, but sometimes on the aisle it smells cigarette. The AC good, free wifi, the room was clean up everyday. In front of the hotel is the bus stop, 2 stops only to the novena MRT station, but I have to walk from the bus stop to the MRT station maybe 3min. Then for the return way from MRT to the bus station quiet far, it takes 6min walking. The staff is nice and friendly. So over all worth it.
