Nice Hotel but far to get too by train from the airport Mar 19, 2014
The hotel located close to Little India and Bugis Junction which is near city centre. Easy to reach by MRT with a stop at Farrer Park station. However if takes MRT from the airport to the hotel, it take one hour and need to changed train two times, since the MRT system in Singapore is go on a loop, and take a while to walk as well from the MRT interchange station to other MRT line. First changed is in Tanah Merah station, and take train to go toward city centre (green line) and then changed again in Outram Park (take the purple line train) – after that need to walk at least 5 minutes down under the MRT to the purple line.
Once reach Farrer Park station, walk out from the station, turn left and the hotel is around 500m on the right hand side (corner) with big sign on it is building.
There is one Buddhist temples next to the hotel and another at the opposite side of the hotel, and several nice old looking buildings nearby. I visited those temples which has beautiful carving on the front building. Seem many people come to this temple to pray.
In the back of the hotel building is another street called Serangoon and there is plenty of local eatery open until late night and several bars around it. There is one bus stop at the back of the hotel building in Serangoon Street, if you fancy take a bus.
I arrived in the hotel around 10pm, and the male receptionist was quick with my reservation (since I already pre book it 2 weeks prior through booking.com), and gives the key straightaway after photocopy my passport.
There is an elevator in the hotel and my room is on the third floor right at the very back, end of the hallway.
The room is small in size with twin bed, small cupboard near the doorway, flat screen television, water boiler and free tea and coffee, and all necessity normally you have in the hotel room such as soap and shampoo (but not hairdryer), and everything work fine. At night time, it was very quiet in the hotel and could not hear other guest from the room and no noise in the hallway. Breakfast is not included in the room price. However, there are plenty of local stalls near the areas and I only need a place to sleep for a night to catch my flight the next day. The hotel is clean, pleasant enough to stay (albeit the location) and Internet is free in the whole building and connection was good and fast. There is a couple computers downstairs for guest to use freely if do not have any laptop.
In the morning when I check out, I was able to leave my bag in the hotel to explore Singapore for half a day and it was free of charge. The hotel cost SGD97 per night for one or two people without breakfast.

nice hotel Feb 03, 2011
This is just across the road from the Mitraa and we moved here because we wanted to spend longer in Singapore but the Mitraa was all booked up after our initial 2 night stay there.
This is very much a hotel rather than a hostel. The staff were very efficient rather than friendly. The rooms were very clean, big, nice beds and lovely bathroom. The air con was spot on.
Nothing I can even remotely find fault with but it does seem very impersonal. Lovely place to stay but expensive, we only stayed here because Duncan managed to talk them down from their going rate and it happened to be right next to where we had been staying.
