Hotel is really old and dirty
We decided to stay at Apollo Hotel because we found some really nice pictures of the hotel, but the moment we entered the hotel lobby, we knew we made a bad choice. Not only the hotel is expensive (I paid SGD120++ per night), but the hotel is also very old. Only plus point is that it's very near to the harbour. But this plus point actually turned into a nightmare the next morning as the platforms in the harbour were making this squeaking noise when the waves came. Also, I reached the hotel rather early and could not check in yet; hence, I had to use their public toilet on the 1st floor, and it smell worst than the public toilets in train stations/restaurants/etc. I almost puke out everything I ate that morning.
After we checked in at about 5pm, we confirmed that we made a lousy choice. The room is old, small and dirty. Only good thing is the view. The worst thing about the room is the toilet. It's extremely old and dirty. It's so bad until I rather not drink water so that I don't have to use the toilet that often. The bath tube is yellowish and not white. Toilet bowl is full of stains. I was more than happy to check out early the next day. And, the hotel room door was so badly designed - you actually need to slam your door in order to close it. Because of this, I kept waking up from my sleep because other guests were leaving/coming back to their rooms.
Finally, breakfast was horrible. We left after having 1 mouthful of porridge each. They can't even cook proper plain porridge.
Conclusion is, I will never ever return to this hotel again.
