First trip to Singapore

Check in staff had great customer service. With fast check in and a complementary up grade due to room shortages. Although the room looked a little out dated it had every thing we needed. Due to construction of the new MRT stop most taxi drivers found access to be a problem. Only had 2 issues with our stay first wasn't really the hotel/apartments fault which was the main room air conditioning was making a loud noise. The 2nd recommendation would be to have a better breakfast options

Exceeded our expectations

We were expecting a fairly basic experience at this hotel as their rates are modest compared to other Singapore hotels. However, we were upgraded to a spacious apartment on arrival, all staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, particularly the lovely girls on reception, and the pool was refreshing after a hot day of exploring. My only quibble was that the breakfast area was crowded and the food quite average, though adequate.

singapore stop over

hotel is very central the amenities and also public transport. stayed in one bedroom apartment, good size for couple and lot of space to store suitcase and belonging inspite of small double bed room. spacious lounge and good size kitchen. staff were very friendly I arrived at 6.30am and my room was given to me at 9.30am when the check in wasnt till 2pm. Staff sent me in breakfast room and showed me where the recreation room was and the swimming pool where I could have shower and freshen up. Pity about the singapore weather when I was there. There was some construction going on in front of the Hotel. So not quite at the pool and the balcony at breakfast..
