Superior double Room???!!!!!
Was expecting a comfortable room described by Procelain Hotel as 'Superior double' room. Room 312 has very little area to walk in. I was a solo traveller. I could not even open up my 35cm x 46cm cabin sized suitcase on the floor. Bed linen felt greasy so I asked for a clean bedsheet which I folded over to sleep between. At least the clean bedsheet felt cleaner. On the reception desk is a sign, asking if you'd like an upgrade to a larger room (for extra cost). I've never seen that before in all my 40 years of travelling. There are some larger rooms but I'd definitely avoid room 312 if there are two people staying in it. In addition, the bed height was 82 cms high! Most unusual! Water pressure and temperature were good. Location was excellent!

Nice, compact and easy.
Perfectly located on the edge of Chintown. Plenty of restaurants and very close to the MRT (subway). The room was tiny with 3/4 of the sleeping room taken up by the bed. Storage space for luggage was adequate beneath the bed. Everything was very compact but neat and functional, and most importantly the bed was very comfortable. There wa no window in the room. The bathroom was a decent size with an excellent shower. Decent price and perfect for a night or two when in town.

Weekend at Singapore
located at Chinatown. The room I stayed first night is by far worst than the one displayed at internet. Never could be rated 3 stars. The second night was at a much better room, but still beyond of what is expected for a 3 stars level.

Bad hotel, dont book them
The A/C gets hot sometimes. Goes on and off. The internet sucks. Keeps dropping. No adult content. They block the adult content. I pay for the rooms. You should give me food service. The terminator came in my room to spray while I was in the room. They say it wasnt toxic. But all bug spray all toxic to human health. I found a roach in my room. When I ask for some more towels. They say your room is already clean. You dont need any more towels.

Wouldn't stay again.
This was one of the worse hotels in our trip but we knew what was coming - from doing our research of cheaper hotels in Singapore we knew we were going to get a teeny tiny room but this nearly took the piss! The room just about fitted a bed and there was no walking space or room on the floor to put the suitcases so they had to be put right at the entrance at the door which was inconvenient. The 'bathroom' was a small cubicle with a toilet and then the shower was in the same cubicle so you were nearly showering on the toilet it was so cramped! And it meant the whole space got wet but it wasn't designed as a wet room. We only really booked here because of the location, it is right around the corner from Chinatown MRT which was super handy and there is a 7/11 near as well.

Very small rooms
OK for a couple of nights stopover in Singapore. Location is great on the edge of Chinatown. Hotel itself is a bit run down - but you get what you pay for - its better than others at the same price. My big complaint is that the room was very small - not what I expected from the description on I was there for 10 days and the lack of anywhere to sit in the room was a real issue. I would not stay there again for anymore than the odd night.
