First of all I would suggest looking elsewhere.
The Inn is a rather small hotel in a great location right in the middle of China Town. I had to make a rushed decision to stay here and I did regret it. I was charged S$180 a night and the room was far below the standard I was expecting. Perhaps I was unlucky with what I was allocated? It was small and rather cramped, the bathroom was average and the rest nothing worth writing home about.
Unique Quality: Great facade from the outside, and in a great location.
i highly recommend this hotel, not the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive.
Very friendly and attentive staff, airconditioned rooms , internet service available, a fantastic breakfast buffet if desired,a tiny pool but service on the terrace, coffee facilities in room, seperate bathroom ,luxurious but not extreem, and a short easy walk to orchard street, about ten minutes down hill. ideal for shopaholics. I have stayed here several times and will always go back.
Unique Quality: internet available in room, gym, sauna ,pool ,laundry ,great staff.
Directions: orchard road
A good option of a low-cost accomodation. If you just want to stay overnight, the advantages are convenient location and relatively cheap prices. I paid 85 Singapore dollars per night, breakfast not included (there are dozens of places for breakfast closer than 500 meters to the hotel). I booked in advance online through the Singapore hotel website, http://hotels.online.com.sg/, they give better prices than if you book directly with the hotel. My room was without windows and small, which is a bit inconvenient. The bathroom is big. A/c and TV set are in the room.
Directions: Two minets walk from Chinatown subway station. Exit to Pagoda street.
I was very tempted not to write anything about this hotel, as I reckon its a bit of a find, and maybe I should keep its existence a secret!
Nice carved wood furniture, clean bathrooms and a decent bed. Add a great location and airconditioning and what more could you want? But shhh, don't tell everyone!
Unique Quality: The good things about the Inn at Temple Street....
1. Location. Far from the fancy hotel strip, this hotel is snugly set in the China town area. It is still a cheap taxi ride from the airport but rather than being surrounded by other tourists you are surrounded by locals.
2. Price: I thought the price was really very decent.
3. Nearby cafes etc. Across the street is a cafe, not a fancy one by any means, but somewhere the locals sit and eat. The food was great and cheap and its open till very late at night. The rest of the chinatownd district is also great for food.
4. Airconditioning; a lovesome thing in Singapore, believe me. The airconditioning is not high powered, but is enough to cool you down after a long steamy day.
On the face of it this should have been a great place to stay. I was looking for somewhere with some character that was a little different from the norm. This seemed perfect. Located in Chinatown, the hotel has been created from 5 restored shops.
The reality was different. The rooms were tiny, especially considering the price. Service wasn't great and the location wasn't special.
I was also upset at being given a 'good' price on the internet only to overhear people walking in off the street getting much better rates.
I would not recommend this place.
