Gateway Hotel Singapore Reviews
Quiet Neighborhood but Easy Access Sep 22, 2009
Since it was my first time to go abroad, I still was not dare to stay at a hostel. I still felt more comfortable to stay at a hotel. Staying at a hotel in Singapore is not cheap. I was looking for hotels within my budget but I got information from my friends that mostly they are at the red zone :P
In short, a friend of mine found this hotel and offered me. The main reason was this hotel is within my budget, not at the red zone, and the location is strategic.
I was lucky, at Changi I met a girl who was also waiting for the same bus. She told me where to alight. The hotel is closed to a bus stop. It is only 10 minutes slow walk. I was dragging my suitcase that time ;D
The room is big enough and comfortable enough. It is not fancy but I am satisfied of it. What I like the most is my room faces to a housing. The environment is comfortable for me. Around the hotel, there are many muslim's shops and restaurants. It is a muslim neighborhood.
What I don't know is whether the hotel serve breakfast or not :P Cause I didn't see any coffe shop or a restaurant inside the hotel and I didn't have any intention to dine in the hotel.
The hotel is also quite closed to a train station. Even, in front of it there is a club, the neighborhood is quiet enough.

January 03 2007 Oliver. You’re late! Carl barked at me. We had scheduled a meeting to run through the current situation on the recruitment sales pipeline. I checked my watch…hotel and checked out before heading to a pancake house for breakfast. Not a bad consultation prize. As I sat reading a particularly unhelpful and disinteresting tourist book…
