    Location is great - Situated in Little India and an easy walk from Bugis mrt station and Little India mrt station plus walking distance from the Mustafa centre. Plenty of eating places in the area.

    Not sure that the photos/summary for the hotel were an accurate representation of the hotel. We had a room at the front of the building and it was very noisy until the early hours of the morning. The room had a balcony and the gaps under the 2 doors to the balcony were about an inch high! Didn't think much of the towels - I have floor rags thicker than the towels!

    The hotel accomodated my family in one room only.

    The indian nationals that sourrounds the hotel are very noisy. We can't sleep tight.

    Madras is 10mins to mrt station,15 mins walk to Mustafa mall and circle mall,easy to get a taxi and lots of souvenir stall around..

    a good hotel ....but very noisy at night...maybe because there's a bar besides the hotel..I'm not complaining,besides,I enjoyed my stay..

    1. Hotel members are very supportive and helpful .2.Self serving breakfast with limited menu.3. Housekeeping standards are good .4. Very nice , sincere and honest staff.

    On Sundays/ Holidays the locality may not be comfortable for traditional families on account of the surrounding while reaching the hotel or going out during late evening hours .However it is comfortable once you are inside your rooms.

    Nothing. The room was ok. But nothing about it is memorable. The only good thing is that she didn't charge us for the early check-in.

    The receptionist was a bit rude when she answered my call about the arranged pick-up when we arrived at the airport. She said that we can just get a cab when I said that we have arranged a pick-up. Then the cab driver charged us SG$55 instead of the agreed rate with the hotel of SG$50.

    Location is very bad ,lots of noise with pubs around not able to sleep at night after a hectic day of sight seeing. The breakfast was also of poor standard.I think this hotel is suitable for bachelors not for family.

  • Family with children

    Proximity to important landmarks , helpful front office staff and value for money

    There should be more variety for breakfast

    Room, AC and staff was nice.

    Breakfast can be improved.

    Conveniently located near good restaurants.

    Hotel room was clean, however the bathrooms were oily. Also, it was noisy at night due to the bar next door.

    I was able to meet the Owner while arriving the Hotel, which is rare. So improvements/defects has been noticed and rectified as and then. Early check in was allowed if the room is free without any extra charge, but the late check out is not entertained. Other's OK. Booking online is cheaper.

    Two hours room renting is noticed during stay which should be curtailed in future.

    Cleanliness and the lack of service attendance.

    Location, nearness to restaurants and shopping.

    The room was without any window which gives a very odd feeling.

  • Group of friends

    The room was big and spacious with windows and had a balcony. The attached washroom had all the amenities with clean towels, shampoo and soap and hot and cold water. The room was cleaned daily. The floor had carpets and drinking water was provided everyday. Iron and laundry facilites were provided. Early checkin was permitted and really appreciated. Shopping at Little India and Sim Lim Square was really close and convinient. The receptionist and the owners were really nice and cooperative. Wi Fi was free and fast enough. Indian food was available with plenty of restaurants around. Taxis were available to take you to any part of the city.

    The location was too noisy with pubs around. The room had no fridge and kettle. The LCD TV was small with fewer channels and the room was a bit worn out. The continental breakfast could have been better as it contained of only bread, butter, jam, cereals and egg with a choice of tea/ coffee/ milk. Bananas were also provided and the same menu was repeated everday. Mustafa was far but MRT was very near and very convinient to move around. A bit expensive as the hotel is a bit old and located in a noisy area.

    shower pressure excellent,tv channels few and not good reception,plenty to eat at free breakfast although same everyday.clean sheets everyday and extra towels and pillows available,staff as helpful as can be,taxis dont seem to know where hotel is.overall a nice hotel,400 metres from train 150 metres to buses.

    if you dont like scrambled egg or toast forget breakfast.

  • Older travelers

    the hotel is right in little india so great position. noisy but expected because of where it is. the complimentary breakfast is very poor. just slices of cheap white bread, cold scrambled egg and only 1 hot drink allowed out of a vending machine. the secure room to leave our rucksacks during the day turned out to be just the hotel lobby!this is a very over priced hotel for its facilities
