            Too little selection for breakfast

          • Family with children
            4.2

            The reception staff are very friendly. Pool was nice enough. Gym was ok - good enough for a few days.

            The rooms and appliances were quite dated. Some maintenance issues - leaking air conditioner and faulty TV - these were fixed upon request. Not walking distance to MRT or Orchard road - especially with young kids. Quite expensive for what you got but perhaps that's just the cost of accomodation in Singapore.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            hotel staff is friendly ,and the location is good ,apartment is big and comfortable roof top pool and the play area is ok for kids .we can rest at the pool area at evening time, plaza singapora mall is walking distance ,ochard road is near by ,good location ,taxi stand infront of the hotel,its not a hotel its like home out of home,

            when we chick in we have to carry our bags to loby ,because bellboy is not around ,breakfast is same for every day

            The staff very friendly. Good price for the money. Close to shopping areas. Overall my stay was nice and peacefull. Very nice. Will go back again and again

            Construction work which made it hard to find the first time but as soon as we found the right way everything was good

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Close to the City and MRT station, Easy to get halal food, near mosque

            Boring breakfast menu , road temporary blocked due to construction

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Excellent facilities for a do-it-yourselfer as in adequately furnished Kitchen with Oven, Cooker, mw, Kettle, Toaster, sink etc, tv with good range of channles, dvd, Radio, well appointed, pay-as-you-go laundry, beautiful roof-top pool. I enjoyed all of that but if you're looking for room service and so-on, you'll need to go elsewhere! The staff are friendly and very effficient. I would recommend this hotel especially for long-termers and if self-catering is your major requirement.

            The mrt construction is noisy and disruptive to hotel access but it's not unbearable. Pity that the barbecue facilities aren't there as advertised.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            The Room is Very Good and it's very good experience to stay at the hotel.. The smells of the room is good.. The receptionis girls kind of cute.. And nice. The wifi is great things about the room..

            The breakfast food is so poor.. The chef didn't cook very well..

          • Family with children
            6.6

            The location is near shopping and mrt, the 2br have spacious place, clean and good for family, we stay with my mums and kids and they love it, overall is good

            Now, not the best timing to stay there because of the closing of the road of bencoolen because of their building an mrt on that road, so impact of the noise of the constructions a bit annoying, and also we cannot find the lobby or the entrance because of the road close, we just drop in the parking lot and dunno where to go cause no body also in the parking from the hotel or direction/ information about the way to the lobby for check in. But for the rooms and the facility is great, only the noise from the contructions and the road close is a bit annoying. After or when the mrt contruction finish we definitally will come back and stay there.

          • Family with children
            4.6

            The construction in front of the hotel is not informed to the guest. We were socked, after we paid so much for the room that the massive construction is going on in front of the hotel. The hotel reception Is in the parking lot, and nobody was waiting. Wwe do ne tried to change the room for the less noise, but the staff make it so difficult to do that. Finally, we made it and got the basket for apologizing fr management. it is not recommended until the construcion done by end 2013.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Comfortable place to stay with older children,very close to Bugis the shopping area also close to Little India.

            Breakfast spread very limited.
