      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.

      ON OUR LAST DAY IN DOWNTOWN SINGAPORE... WE DECIDED TO TOUR THE MARINA BAY. IT ENCOMPASSES SOME VERY FUTURISTIC BUILDINGS AND GARDENS. BEFORE YOU TAKE A LOOK AT OUR PICTURES FOR THE DAY, TAKE A LOOK AT NELLY'S IMPRESSIONS ON SINGAPORE:

      Singapore, the city of the Lion, is a melting pot of all Nations. Very friendly, helpful, but not as clean as Tokyo and NO masks are worn. But everyone, no matter ...

      ... Musikshow im Gardens of the Bay an. Im Anschluss gingen wir zu einer Fontänen-, Laser- und Musikshow ganz in der Nähe und diese war etwas anders als erwartet. Mit Lasern wurden Bilder projiziert und ein Nebel aus Wasser wurde dabei als Leinwand verwendet. Total irre!

      ... from the skybridge I decided to take the long walk around the reservoir instead of just taking the same route back. This increased my walk to 14Km in total, but allowed me to see a lot of wildlife on the way around, including what I later discovered was a wild Cologu(a kind of flying Lemur) unfortunately clinging onto a tree and not in full flight. After walking around the outside of the beautiful reservoir I headed out of the park and back to the ...

      ... the fun! Lunch finished we went and picked up the suitcase and jumped in a cab back to the hotel, where Ken decided he needed a nap. Standing around waiting for 3 women to shop is very exhausting! Time to head out again, back onto the MRT and after a couple of changes we were at Bayside, and a short walk to Gardens By The Bay. On the walk through the tunnels out of the MRT is a hall of sellfie mirrors. The walkway is lined with mirrors and beautiful flower ...
