Positive Reviews


Charming neighbourhood is a big hit

A great many visitors appreciated this hotel's location, set as it is in a lively yet charming neighbourhood with lots of restaurants, food centres, markets and shops. Some guests thought that the Novena metro station was a little far to walk (17 minutes), but this was mitigated largely by the fact so many city-bound buses stop right outside the property.


Hotel maintains clean interiors throughout

The vast majority of guests staying here had nothing but positive things to say about the cleanliness of their rooms, and indeed of the hotel's interiors in general. Evidently, this property rates hygiene very highly on its list of priorities.


Consistently high standards of customer service

Numerous visitors have observed how adept the hotel's customer-facing staff members are at meeting the needs of their visitors. In general, it was the ever-cheery and normally very proactive receptionists who garnered the highest praise.

Negative Reviews


Guest rooms are incredibly small

The rooms here aren't just small; they're tiny. Definitely something to keep in mind if you're travelling with others.


Soundproofing isn't very effective

Very few guests liked the fact that they could hear their neighbours talking, watching TV and/or entertaining themselves quite clearly through the walls.


Showers in the guest rooms aren't enclosed

The bathrooms within the accommodations don't have any kind of cubicle or enclosure to keep the water from going everywhere. Needless to say, most guests didn't like this as it leaves the floor persistently wet and makes the door lock rusty.
