Singapore Bliss Hotel

For my recent Singapore trip with Ban, we decided to stay at a hotel as we couldn't really find accommodation at friends' place. As a result, we didn't stay as long as I would like to.

After much research (chiefly over Agoda and TripAdvisor), we decided on Bliss Hotel for 3 main reasons: clean room (from guests' review), free wifi connection (paramount importance for Ban) and easy access to MRT station (just across Chinatown MRT station). It cost SGD87.45 per person, after discount and including taxes.

The hotel was less than a year old and looked modern. The decoration was simple but tastefully done in a modern way. Room could be considered a little small by some but we didn't care about the size. I just wanted comfortable bed, shower and electrical items that work, and clean room. Ban just wanted a wifi :P All these were there. What a relief.

There were a few tv channels, the wifi was fast, 2 bottles of mineral water and sachet of assorted beverage free each day and clean towels offered everyday. Four clothes hangers were provided, in lieu of wardrobe, which I felt were inadequate.

There were 2 problems. Firstly, the person sleeping closest to the aircond duct would feel significantly colder than the other person. Too cold without the comforter. Too hot with the comforter, except face that felt cold. That sort of ruined my first night there. Took a few tries to figure out the combination of aircond temperature and comforter to finally able to sleep. Unfortunately, as a result, we had to cancel lunch appointment the next day because we had to sleep in a little to catch up on sleep.

The other problem was that we could hear people talking loudly outside. The rooms were situated roughly in a square with the elevator in the middle. There was this old Chinese lady (from China, judging from her accent) who spoke loudly and repeatedly tried to persuade another person to join some of them for breakfast or something. Goodness. 

I haven't gone to higher floors. Perhaps it would be different.
