    The room is a good size for us. All the staff are very nice and professional. I also like the location. The restaurant (hajjh Maimunah rest.) and the money changer in front of the hotel are very2 helpful.

    I took the cab twice when the driver doesn't know the location.

    Superb

    We stayed in a two-bedroomed apartment as we were travelling with our daughter and grandaughter who is coming up to one year old. We requested a cot which was sturdy and was furnished with clean bed linen. The apartment soft furnishings are starting to show signs of wear, ie a couple of marks on the sofa cushions and there was black mould starting to form in the shower room but, that apart, it was an excellent choice. The roof-top swimming pool is lovely. A complimentary breakfast is provided which includes fruit juices, cereals, breads, yoghurt, scrambled eggs, sausage and baked beans. It is centrally located. Reception staff are excellent - efficient and very friends. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this place.

    The two bedroomed apartment was very spacious for my Two adult sons and I, after some wrangling the hotel supplied an additional bed for us as we were underoccupied free of charge but they are a little rigid in there layout and thinking. The location for us was spot on a short distance to the Marina bay and the f1 circuit, and walking distance to the Singapore flyer and Clarkes quay because of this we always turned right out of the hotel but turning left takes you to a small chinese market which was superb for eating and viewing a fantastic temple. The rooftop pool is good for relaxing and adequate for adults to relax but not enough space for kids to play.

    There is a new underground station being built directly outside the hotel but this only caused minor noise pollution. The Breakfast was very poor and although we only had breakfast twice each time left still hungry, for example on our last day the Hashbrowns had no flame underneath keeping them warm and the Scrambled eggs resembled semolina rather than eggs and the beans were hard and unedible very dissapointing.

    As an apartment it was good value compared with an hotel. Our family, on this visit, comprised three adults and three children and our two bedroom apartment had everything we needed.

    The location is convenient and basic facilities are reasonable. The reception and housekeeping staff are generally friendly.

    The breakfast facility is quite basic and could be a bit more creative; when staying for a week it gets very monotonous. The attitude of the staff especially at the breakfast lounge is not at all customer friendly and they seem keen to just get rid of the clients at the earliest. Smallest of requests are met with a standard line of denial - I asked for a simple cream cheese spread and they told me that it was not part of the breakfast on that day and they couldnt give it. Much of the food would run out even within breakfast timings and would not be replenished. Left a poor taste of the hospitality.

    Superb

    The location was perfect with easy access to MRT stations and hot spots like Orchard Road and Little India. The reception staff was very friendly, helpful, polite and professional.

    Wish the hotel had some indoor sports facilities like Table Tennis.

    Spacious 2 bedroom appartment for a good price

    Lots of construction. However, this will pass with time. I do feel sorry for the hotel company enduring the construction right out the front of the hotel.

    Good Location, friendly staff.

    Our apartment was not serviced everyday. There is construction right out the front which makes it a little difficult to get to.

    Excellent location for going around city, shopping and enjoyed restaurants around hotel location. Veranda attached to sitting room was great. I will be coming back again.

    Superb

    Staff excellent. Highly recommend on the exceptional service, attitude and friendlyness of staff. Late checkout if room not booked. Location within walking distance to Orchard Road.

    Work outside building due to upgrade of Metro but this had no impact on our stay. A bit of noise during the day but quiet at night. Thourghly enjoyable stay.

    Location is quite good, located at city centre, but quite far walking to shopping malls, at least 15 minutes.

    If I know that the road in front of the hotel is under construction for MRT station, I would prefer not to stay there.

    Location - To get to any decent restaurants is a cab ride away. The restaurant was closed. The hotel is in the middle of a major building site making it difficult to get to by cab and not pleasant to stay.
