This hotel is close to Farrer Park MRT station, buses, shopping centre and a food court. It has lots of food options nearby including juice bar and breakfast options. There are lots of hardware stores in this part of town.
We stayed in room 310. Whilst spotlessly clean it did have a mouldy ceiling. No wardrobes or shelf in the bathroom which are my pet hates in a hotel. The aircon was permanently set to 18 degrees but you did need it to sleep comfortably at night. The hotel is good value for money and was fully booked when we left. Free wi-fi. – SydneyLoretta of Australia at TripAdvisor
