    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.

    Breakfast was excellent. Followed the same path as yesterday and enjoyed every course. The staff are very friendly and interacted with us - even had a joke with the boss man. The coffee is very nice so Annette is content, I'd even go as far as saying that she ...

A slight mishap in directions where we missed our turnoff over the Bolte Bridge & eventually turning around after the West Gate Bridge & retracing our steps to our turnoff. It didn't help Griff ( who was driving) that Marg & I were in the back seat giving directions & acting like "typical back seat drivers". Griff, however kept a cool head & had us into the ...

    ... Along Orchard Road many trees line the energetic strip.

    We decided to spend a few hours on our trusty hop on hop off bus to get our bearings. As we had flown with Singapore Airlines we got a discount, paying only $8 each for day pass instead of $25 which was a great saving. Our bus driver moved very quickly but we did manage to get to see where we would be staying on our return trip at Clarke Quay, also Little India, China town and other notable ...

    ... an hour or so wondering round and had brunch down by the beach before heading over to Faber Peak. We had a wonder round the park to see another Merlion but there wasn't much there so we headed home to the hotel. We initially considered going to the pool for a couple of hours but a massive thunderstorm hit, the lightening was amazing from our room window! So, we decided to go to the Long Bar at Raffles to have our Singapore Sling cocktails! We ...

    The dragon dance was particularly nice to see as we found it at a small business with only a few people watching. Businesses all around Singapore will organise a dragon dance as it is thought to bring good luck. The dragon ...
