Stayed there with hubby for staycation. We enjoyed the stayed as the location was 5mins walking distance to the mall (City Square) which is above the mrt station (farrer park). One big plus is that it is very near Mustafa,. Which is the only shopping center open for 24 hours in the whole Country. Good food just around the corner or corners i must say.
The rooms are not super big but they are enough to make you feel cosy and comfortable specially after a long walk. the aircon was working great and so does the rest of the fixtures. The bed and linens smells fresh and nice to sleep at.
You actually don’t need to bring any basic toiletries as they have it all.
Overall it was a pleasant stay! we recommend this specially for tourists. – mcDanceL of Singapore at TripAdvisor
In terms of positioning this hotel is great. You can walk onto Serangoon Road, the main street of Little India in under 5-minutes. And Mustafa Center, a 24-hour bazaar style shopping center with great bargains is about 10-minutes stroll away.
The area is steeped in history including the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple (one of the oldest Indian temple in Singapore) and the quirky shophouses of Lavender Street, which has a food center where you can try the local specialties.
- 12-minutes walk to Farrer Park MRT (NE8) station
- 9-minutes walk to Lavender MRT (EW11) station
- Two shopping malls within walking distance: Mustafa Center and City Square
- 1 stop via MRT to Bugis and Arab Street
- 2 MRT stops to Orchard Road
- Around 45-minutes to Changi Airport via MRT
