Good location and friendly staff

We've stayed here a few times as a stopover for Australia. The location is excellent, just by the quayside. Chinatown is just down the road and Fort Canning Park a short walk away.

Happy returning customer

This is our third stay at this hotel and for the location and value for money wouldn't stay anywhere else. Its right on Clarke Quay MRT station, walking distance to Boat Quay ( restaurants) and Chinatown( hawker food centre) and market, no need to go all the way to Orchard Rd and lots cheaper! The hotel staff we encountered were always happy and friendly and whilst the deco is a bit dated now , they do provide a Nespresso coffee machine which is a great addition .

Great hotel in a great location!

Very large rooms. Great location in Clarke Quay. Nine of us dinned at the hotel's restaurant and half of us didn't enjoy our food. Staff are nice, but sometimes quite a wait at reception. Nice pool.

Good Place for Staycation

Convenient (right next to MRT), accessible to downtown malls, and next to Clarke Quay, with good modern comfort. The room is a little old,but to otherwise great place to stay for a few nights.
