Fair 4.0
Hotel reception was dressed unprofessionally in a polo shirt. Did not bother to accommodate our earlier request for a Queen bed. (requested this more than a week back via email) Hotel also charged guest for additional drinking water. (only 2 small 250ml bottles given daily). Sound insulation was non-existent. We had to call front desk everytime we wanted a change in the room's air-con temperature. Would not recommend to others.

A good stay
The staffs are very nice and friendly. The receptionist speak both English and Malay very well. My concern about the toilet is gone as the toilet door is not absolute transparent as in the pictures. The glass was frosted so it is nice even though it can be quite small. The bed is comfortable too. Very little space but since we travel light so it was fine with us. The nearest MRT station is about 15mins walk (not very near to me). However there are lots of buses nearby. They also provide handy phone where I can bring it outside (Saved my roaming data a lot!) The only downside is that the room wall is very thin that you can hear the next room conversations very clearly. We had to speak very slowly not to disturb the neighbors. We didn’t even switch on the TV. If you are a light sleeper might be better if you have your earphones on.

Very good 8.0
Short walking distance to Bugis/Esplanade MRT station. Room is clean but the room is not sound proof. I can hear my next door zipping their luggage clearly and the door slamming sound even few rooms away. It will be nice if the hotel can provide water station and more clothes hanging hook in the bathroom

Poor 2.0
This was a very noisy hotel. The noise from the adjacent room made it very hard to sleep. Talking, thumping, clanging. All these noises sounded like they were coming from inside our room. It was like there was no wall between our room and the next. The beds (we got two single beds instead of the single queen that we had reserved which was ridiculous) were very uncomfortable and I woke with a backache each morning. After the first night we requested a room change and were informed the hotel was fully booked so we couldn't change rooms so the pattern of noise conitinued thru each night of our stay.

Good 6.0
The hotel is conveniently located in front of bus stop and a 7-11 few doors away. The Suntec Center is 7 min walk away for shopping and dining options. The staff is friendly and tends to your needs. Now the downsides; the rooms have almost non-existent soundproofing. You can hear the conversation of the guests in next room and out in the hallway. Bring ear plugs! In room A/C is centrally controlled and front desk needs to be called to adjust temperature. Shower area is cramped and there is no where to place the shampoo/soap! Despite location and friendly staff, the misses in hardware makes it hard to recommend.
