I can hear EVERYTHING!!
Absolutely no soundproofing whatsoever. If you want to stay in a place where you can hear the person in the next room zip up their bag, then this is the place for you.

Great Staff Make this Hotel Fantastic
Extremely comfortable bed in a central location. Only downside was the noise from the adjoining room but that wasn't the hotel's fault. Make sure to check out the comfy rooftop lounge area. Very helpful staff.

Fair 4.0
The location was excellent given the price point but unfortunately the floor was very dirty. If you are staying for the night only, then it is okay but i would not stay beyond that as there are no windows for my room and it was quite restrictive.

Great service - enabled very early check in, very friendly. Room though had no natural light and had not been properly cleaned
Tim, au1 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Brand new hotel with great comfort and essentials in room. Rooms are a bit small and lack windows but the value for money is fantastic, especially considering the location. The breakfast menu is small but has all essentials and taste great! The cook team is so charming and very nice. It was such a great pleasure to start the day with a friendly talk. Will definitely recommend to all travelers on a budget but not willing to compromise in basic comfort and cleanliness.

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.
