    My PA booked this hotel on a short notice, because most other hotels were already booked. I have not had a chance to read the reviews at this point but she said it was rated 3.5-4 stars (self-rated, obviously) and I had nothing to worry about.

    I arrived in Little India, Singapore in the evening and was SHOKED!!! This hotel was the most neglected crap-hole I have ever seen in Singapore. I would rate it at ZERO star. Not even one! Horrish tiny dark stinky lobby with a very rude receptionist, a tiny elevator with floor board that fall apart. Continued down a very narrow corridor that smells like either human or rat urine, into a tiny, old, dusty room. I checked the toilets - they have not been properly cleaned since...probably dozen stays back, hair ball still in the drain and bits of someone's toothpaste in the sink. Someone's hair under the sheets. Disgusting stench of mould and cigarette smoke in the room, which seems to linger permanently. No matter what I did with the air-con, the smell was just getting worse and becoming unbearable.

    I could not stay there longer then 5 minutes. Took my staff and ran out to a Tandoory restaurant across the road which had a free wi-fi to book a different hotel. I asked for a refund - Claremont refused and failed to answer to any of my emails. called a few times later they were just hanging up.

Budget Accommodation

by explore_discover about EX Alexandria Hotel Now Aspinals Hotel

It was long time ago, it was Alexandria Hotel in front of Mustafa Stores, clean and comfortable bed, Air conditioned, TV, Tiny Attached bath which suited my budget,

I Paid SG$55.00 that time, now its re named as Aspinals Hotel (Managed by Claremont Hotel Singapore) and I think it is still good price at SG$80.00 for Single Standard Room Easy Access to MRT and surrounded by many food outlets.

Do taxis in Changi airport take credit cards? Specifically American Express.

Re: Transportation

by ruffled

hullo! There are two taxi companies in S'pore that do accept credit and ATM cards (includ Amex) -- look out for Comfort Taxis (Blue) and CityCab (Yellow). They also tend to be the most common cabs you will see. When you're at the airport you could ask the guys at the taxi stand to help you spot the right ones.
Also when I get into these cabs, I just usually check with the driver that their machiney-thingies are indeed working just to be avoid any hassle at the end of the trip (most often they do!)

Travel Tips for Singapore

Very Efficient Transportation System

by jltan

Singapore has one of the most efficient transportation in the world. Its network of buses (numbered) and trains is enough for a traveler to explore this island-city-state. One farecard can be used in any of the public transportation. Food! Food! And More Food! Singapore has also a pretty good mix of Chinese, Malay, Western, and Indian food. Singapore's diversity is reflected on its food. Hawkers are everywhere!
