The worth staying budget hotel at very good rate. ”

It is value for money, location wise can be considered good but with limited parking space, the only drawback are the rooms are not sound proof, check-in counter closes at 10pm & walk-up shoplots, not suitable for old people. Unfortunately, we have encountered a small issue that the receptionist, who checked us in, speaks loudly causing disturbance to hotel guests. Good thing was the manager Mr Koh gave clear direction on how to enter the premise, he was pretty efficient & attentive, he helps in all our needs. Generally, others are good & we enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful Location, Polite Staff, Complete Facilities

We really enjoyed the location. Situated near local hawker food center. Near to Kek Lok Si and other attraction. The staffs were polite and helpful. The owner provide effective and efficient service. Facilities are well-provided and complete. two toilets were provided. ~~~ The rooms were smaller than expected. Sound-proof not ideal. Night time disturbed by noisy neighbors. The toilets are too small. The rooms are humid and smelly. The air-cond is not powerful enough for a hot room.

Not much to complain abt the room looking at the price charged but there's a big breach of security here: The other night we( me n my sis) went bk n saw a bunch of men( think one of the guest brought them in) sitting at the front counter(staff only duty till 10pm daily), which was just infront of our room. We are not being paranoid but Imagine what could happen if they really are bad people. So if ure ladies travellers I would strongly suggest that u look somewhere else. Shud be fine if ure guys

We booked this hotel very last minute at 10+pm, after that we manage to reach the hotel at 11+pm, it's at 5th floor. After we climb up the staircase all the way, but the check in staff has left and we tried to call the contact number provided by agoda, but nobody answer phone call. Then I have to call to agoda to inform the incident and cancel the booking, very bad experience. If you can't handle check in anytime then better dun sell online, or Pls put a remark in the website to inform guest latest check in time. Frustrated when this happened while we were traveling with a 6 momths old baby and 2kids.
