    Good Stay

    The staff were friendly and the room was clean. However, we could hear everyone's voice from the hallway and vice versa. Plus they charge extra for internet use.

    Good value for money but no dining facilities.

    My wife and I along to another couple on business trip arrived at VH-Balestier around 3PM on a Sunday and check-in was a breeze. They charged us for S$109 for a standard double room at the 4th floor but after seeing that the room did not have any windows we asked for one that had windows. Reception was very accommodating. They immediately transferred us to another room with a window but we had to pay another S$10.00 extra to get a room that had a view of the back street alley on the west side. Air conditioning was good so the hot afternoon sun did not really bother us.

    The following Monday they charged us for only S$99.00 plus S$10 extra for a room with a window. Front desk personnel were always smiling every time we talked to them and they were very helpful in getting directions. You can also rent the computers in the lobby to google for directions @ S$4.00 for half-hour use.

    Room is adequate for our needs with a queen-size bed that's quite comfortable, not too hard not too soft. We were able to doze off right away as there was no noise coming from the traffic outside. Hotel room door was quite secure.

    There's an LCD TV hanging right in front of the bed and bedside switches for the lights. There's no telephone charge for city calls. You can get an extra pillow for S$5.00.

    Bathrooms are average size although the whole bathroom floor can get wet as there are no shower curtains. No problem with the hot shower. Standard bathroom amenities are available.

    When we checked out on Tuesday morning the front desk staff agreed to have 2 medium sized luggages stored in their baggage room because we were going to Kuala Lumpur that evening minus the extra luggage.. We picked it up at around 3AM Friday when we got back from KL and the front desk staff did not complain.

    By the way, there are 3 Value Hotels in Singapore so you have to clearly inform the cab driver you want to go the Value Hotel on Balestier Road.

    There are no coffee shop or restaurant facilities in the hotel so if you want to take breakfast there's a noodle house around the corner that opens at around 7AM or you can buy some snack foods and sandwiches at the 24-hour convenience store by the side entrance near the hotel lobby. Right across the hotel is a 7-11 store that's also open 24/7.

    The hotel provides 2 bottles of mineral water daily.

    There's a bus stop right in front of the hotel doorsteps so commuting to Orchard Road is only about 10 minutes ride and the bus to Vivo City in Harbour Front/ Sentosa is about 25 minutes away. There are several buses that stop every 10-15 minutes to take you to different routes. All routes are displayed in the bus stop.

    Overall, I would give the hotel a very satisfactory rating and I would recommend the hotel to travellers with average needs.

    Susan had organised a car to Heathrow from our apartment so we were ready with time to spare. When we took our bags out at 5 to 10, Muhammad was waiting and we were off for a very slow, round about drive to Heathrow that showed us parts of London we had never seen, because there had ben a series of accidents that had completely jammed the traffic. It took until 12.30 until we got to Terminal 2 which meant there was no time for the lounge. It was a long walk to ...

    ... had a drawer, in mine were the plates and chopsticks, Sam’s side had the menus. We marked out the items we wanted on a sheet of paper and gave them to a waitress. We ordered a selection of sushi and yakitori skewers. Everything was very tasty and fresh. Our place mat also provided instructions on The Authentic Way of Eating Sushi which made us smile. We washed it all down with a bottle of Sake that was the week special, it was nice and cold and dry.

    ... it easy to check the temperature, I thought. When I came to put the bathmat down, the edge was wet - the plug was in the bath! I changed the water to the shower and climbed in, thinking I'd sort the plug situation out. There wasn't a lever thing - it must spring up when you press down! No! The level was getting higher, so it was a quick shower before asking Ron to fix it (after having another look myself).

    ... and tried one or two different things before heading back to the hostel. When we got back Howard had a beer waiting for us and told us to go relax up on the rooftop of the hostel. It was a nice, action packed, evening with some very friendly people. In the morning Leik and Trym asked me if I wanted to join them walking around the town so we set off in no particular direction. Malacca is a world heritage site like George Town and has lots of old buildings and nice side streets. ...
