First Impressions

A travel blog entry by clauds

It was officially my first time in Singapore. The only other time I had been in Singapore was a few years back during a flight transit, so I didn't see anything but the Changi airport at that time. This time, I'm ready to explore Singapore!

And what better way to start off than the Singapore Flyer? However, the first adventure would be to …

What a 'fine' city

We headed to Singapore knowing little more than it was pricey, strict and the scene of an embarrassing British defeat in WW2. The city itself though was actually pretty good. It was extremely clean, modern, the people were super polite and it had a character about it. We checked into our 'value' hotel (In Singaporean terms) which turned out to be …

Farewell Singapore

We had a perfect last day in Singapore. Finally got to sleep in a bit and then went and got breakfast and more Kopi...remember the coffee I was raving about yesterday, well it's still delicious. We took Henley, our friend's dog to Fort Canning Park for a long hike. Fort Canning Park is a historical landmark dating back to when the Malay Kings ruled the island. It is also where the decision for Singapore to surrender to the Japanese was made by the British in WWII. After the park, ...

    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.

    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.
