Overall this was a really nice hotel. They attempt to use a theme of being "hip" and "modern". It works well in the room, as all your room comfort, such as lights, curtains, AC are all controlled via iPad. The room was excellent! We also visited the rooftop bar and pool area, which was also very pleasant and relaxing. The hotel is only about a 20 minute walk from the Marina area and the street food area outside the hotel makes it a very convenient location. We only used taxi service, and found the taxi rates to and from the airport really inexpensive. There is a Costa Coffee shop in the same building and a Starbucks just a block away. The room had a small mini-bar with a few drinks and snacks, which were complimentary. The breakfast buffet was very impressive and tasty. The only complaint we really had was the lack of a business center. We needed to check our flights and print out boarding passes and they advised that they did not have any way of doing this. This was the first 4 star hotel we have ever been to that did not have a way for you to print out your boarding passes.

As a couple, we stayed three nights at this hotel.
Although we wanted a hotel within 5 minutes walking distance to the MRT or shops, we were still quite satisfied with the reliable shuttle service to the MRT. It would be about 12 to 14 minutes walk to the nearest MRT if we know how to take the shortest route, which would involve taking a staircase up or down the hill to or from the hotel. China town is about 10 to 15 minutes walk from this MRT.
Hotel staff were helpful and amiable.
The Green room was clean and comfortable. Facilities were of 4 star quality, although we would have liked a microwave oven (which was not supplied) for heating some food which we bought from the city.
We had some trouble phoning through the room phone to our local contacts and had to go through the desk staff to get the connections. Later the operator had this resolved. There was only ONE chair in the room, but when we requested for an additional stool, it was promptly supplied.
$592 for 5 nights during the Singapore F1. Yes, room was small, but then again I was climbing into bed way past midnight each night. And yes I didn't have a shower rose directly above my toilet as did my friend who chose to stay at that the same hotel. Having said that, the staff were very accommodating and I would happily stay there again.
Chinatown is a maze of streets packed with colorful pre-war shophouses selling bric-a-brac, clothing, antiques and Chinese herbs. Expect good bargains along Tengganu, Temple, and Pagoda Streets, and the best food on Smith Street. The big malls are located along New Bridge Road. Visit Chinatown Heritage Center, see the ornamental Sri Mariamman Hindu temple, or hop on a trishaw for a tour.
