Value for money!”

My son and I always stay at the Arton when going to Singapore, probably our 5th time. Rooms are tiny but with everything u need, window included! Clean with all amenities, a small space for luggage n a few hangers, enough for a few nights. Located less than 10 min walk from Lavender MRT station, 7 min walk to Mustafa, right at the corner a cheap food court and money changer at the hotel above mrt. Friendly staff and possibility to have breakfast across the street at discouted rates. We will definitely be back and we recommend for those seeking some comfort without luxury at a good price!

Friendly staff, small room”

The big title 'Zen Room Jalan Besar' is quite misleading, as the hotel name is actually 'Arton Tyrwritt Boutique Hotel'. Suggest to put which MRT station we should get off on your description, as we were dropping off from Kallang station, but ends up need to take a bus to reach Lavender street. However, staffs are friendly and always ready to help.

Two thumbs up. Nice, accommodating staff. They allowed us to leave our luggage with them after check out which we truly appreciate since our flight was not until late in the evening. Room was clean with modern design. Comfy bed and pillows. Room size can be small for some especially if you have big pieces of luggage. But it was just the perfect size for me, my sis and law and niece. Good location. There are 2 mrt stations closeby. It is also near hawker stations, fastfood and restos. Will definitely book here again when i come back for a vacation in Singapore.

Smaller than it looks”

The Hotel located in a good location, close to public transportation and Little India. The staff are very nice and welcoming. Even though the Hotel is newly refurbished, a thick layer of dust is everywhere and room had long cracks in the wall. Cleaning is not consistent: sometimes toilet is not cleaned, shampoo forgotten, fridge not refilled, not all towels provided... but if you approach front desk, they're quick to fix it. The rooms are also extremely small and if you travel with a suitcase you won't be able to easily open it or unpack - there is just no space, no closet, no shelves. We had a family of 4 and the hotel/room were recommended by Agoda/ZEN as suitable for 4 but on arrival we found it could nicely accomodate only for 2 people (without suitcase). The Staff were were nice but misleading practice by Agoda/ZEN is very disappointing and made our trip less comfortable that it could be.

Beautiful place and nice people 😍”

I just love the lobby embience. I felt welcome the moment I stepped in. A gentleman by the reception desk stood up and greated me with a friendly smile. He highlighted to us on the construction work next building & Mediacorp team doing filming at the same level. He walked us to the lift & handed us our free gifts. Rooms was small but nice & clean. The only disappointment was that of all rooms why must they did filming next to our room. They were noisy while setting up their sets and loud voices as well as lots of movement sound from outside my room till they were in the room. We left at about 6.40pm for dinner and they were still there. There was no restaurant so we had to go out

Located not very far from the MRT. The room was quite clean. The bad was comfortable. No window, but it had to be there according the description. The room was slightly bigger than the bad, there was barely enough space to put and open my travelling case. Due to extremely small size of the room can't recommend it - very uncomfortable.

Compact layout- Ok for sleep and freshen up”

Compact layout room using a small footprint area. For an overnight stay (or 2) the room provides the requirements for freshening up and sleeping. This style is now typical of many new smaller hotels all of which tend to utilise digital functions for the room controls.

Okay”

Very tiny room, i did not know where to put my luggage. Tiny bathroom. Miffed because the airlines had an engineering issue and our flight was scheduled for a day later. Called the hotel to see if they can cancel the first night we booked due to this unforeseen circumstace, but they firmly stated they cannot do anything about it since it was non-refundable. Fair enough. Although I was hoping there could do something to alleviate the situation. It was already annoying that we lost a day of our short holiday without the extra costs involved with this. The airlines not travel insurance was unable to help so I was hoping the hotel would show some compassion. There are other places that has better value for money near the city centre but this location was doable. About 15 min walk to MRT if i remember. We barely stayed in the hotel as we were out exploring mostly.

Overpriced shoe cupboard!!”

It may be Singapore but for the price we paid i expected a bit more than a shoe cupboard sized room. Yes, it was clean, the staff were nice and as a location it was fine being not too far from the MRT. But there was a lot of building working going on during the day (fine, we were out anyway!) but the super thin walls meant we could here people talking and watching TV into the early hours of the morning. So although its a pleasant hotel i for one would not stay there again!!
