Singapore is one of the most expensive tourist destination. Hotel rates depends on the location, comfortability and amenities. Most affordable hotels can be found in red district area.
Breakfast consist of cereals, toast and preserve, coffee & tea and a menu which they change everyday.
Every time we travel I always consider the location for the accessibility to public transportation, comfort and off course affordability. Blog reviews and tripadvisor has always been my best friend.
Actually I was torn between V Hotel and J8. V Hotel is located just at the top of Lavender station- a very excellent location for tourist but according to reviews the rooms are quiet small for the price. We have chosen J8 Hotel even though it's 7-10 mins walk to Lavender station and Farrer Park station because first, the price is more affordable than V Hotel what is 7-10 mins walk by the way. And second, the review was so excellent in tripadvisor as a matter of fact it is No. 1 of 59 Singapore B&B and Inn's.
I booked our room for 4 nights through Agoda where you can find excellent hotel deals worldwide. After your booking you will receive a booking confirmation and receipt and all you have to do is print and show it in the hotel reception upon check in.
And since we'll be arriving in Singapore late, I informed the hotel priory that we will be having a late check in. When we arrived we're welcome by the warm smile of the receptionist and took my hotel confirmation. The check in is very smooth in less than 5 mins we're already in our room.
We had Deluxe Gold room which has a window and located in the corner of 2nd floor. The hotel and our room is very clean and smell so fresh.
Since we're asian the room is spacious enough for us and we can still move around.
Oh! have I mentioned that all the items in the mini-bar are complimentary which consist of: 2 cans of soda, 2 packet of skitters, M&M milk choco, M&M choco peanuts and some mini choco rolls. And they give 2 bottles of water everyday - which I love since even water is expensive in SG.
The bathroom is very clean and they change the towels every day.
|I love this!!|
I enjoyed their bathroom a lot with the rain shower who wouldn't?!

All the staffs is always wearing a smile on their face and helpful to give informations.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience with J8 hotel and we'll definitely stay here if we come back to Singapore.
