    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.

    ... out of runway, fast... The captain did what can only be described as an emergency stop: airplane style. Everyone on board nearly face planted the seat in front of them and we all looked around at each other wondering if we were still alive or if this was heaven. The only person with a different opinion on the matter was a 2 year old girl sitting on the seats opposite us, she thought the whole affair was absolutely hilarious!

    ... we got in and the place was full of Chinese people gambling huge amounts of money. We walked round having a peek at some of the lucky people who seemed to have attracted a crowd and made the most of the free drinks available to guests. We had a pop at the roulette wheel and doubled our 5 to 10- crazy we know!

    Josh and Chris were amazing hosts - thank you guys!! They took us to all their local haunts for some very yummy food. My favourite was the steam boat - I have heard you can do these in the UK now so I will be hunting it out when home. For me it was nice to get away from the tourist areas and see the real Singapore.

The spa operator took great pride that his tanks have white bottoms, not black, so patrons can see just how clean the water is!

    ... very self-centred people. I would try to smile and say hi, they always looked the other way. I even got bumped off of a sidewalk once because this man would not move over and/or walk behind his girlfriend to make room for me! He just bashed me on the shoulder instead.

    After that I ended up in Labrador Park, which was awesome with an amazing mangrove you could walk through on a long boardwalk and a memorial to the soldiers that ...
