    Place is small but comfortable. Location is rather convenient. The room should have more hanging hooks in the room and bathroom. Overall, we are happy during our stay.

    Modern, Clean and Good Service

    I checked in a little bit early and was given my room before check in time. The receptionist was very friendly and service was fantastic. A modern boutique style hotel in a great area. The rooms and bathroom were small but for a solo is ample. I visit Singapore regularly and would definitely stay here again.

    New hotel located at a srategic location; external and interior is warm and comfortable unlike other budget hotel; Note sound proof is bad, not advisable for light sleeper or family with children (can easily hear neighbour hair dryer sound, corridor people's footstep and room was located Infront of store room, housekeeper has been talking loudly and banging the door early morning itself); Only one pillow is given and centralised aircond which you can't control temperature in Ur own room, it was freezing cold at night and morning. However Overall experience is good.
