      Good enough!”

      Location, professionalism, comfort

      Ah Singapore! If you're not rich, your hotel choices are nothing like you would find in Europe and much less than you would find in the Americas (and likely elsewhere). What to do? Well, you essentially have two choices - a backpacker hostel or a "cheap" hotel. (A lot of these backpacker hostels are pretty nice btw but you share a room with a bunch of strangers). Aqueen is one of those "cheap" hotels - yes, that's "cheap" in Singapore. And that's where I think you see a number of reviews that are unhappy with the place. Out of the context of Singapore, this place is just too small. In the context of Singapore, it's a tremendous bargain. What you get is a microscopic room with about 6 inches of space on either side, an ensuite bath with 3' x 3', and that's about it. Even the "queen" room's bed is much smaller than what a queen room would be elsewhere. It's very hard to fit two average adults in it. Apart from that, the place is great! The staff is professional, the hotel is clean, there's an in-room safe, etc. There is no room service and limited concierge. The location is amid a million little places to eat and a stone's throw from a sizable shopping mall. There is an MRT station up over the hill sort of behind the hotel but it a little too far and too hot to walk if you ask me. Right out the door, however, buses stop to take you wherever you want to go, including the MRT station of your choice. Very convenient. The staff was always available to help me find out how to use the buses and tell me which ones to take. Another nice thing is that the road out front is plied by taxis and you can just wave one down in contrast to much of Singapore where you have to queue. I would easily stay here again if in Singapore.

      Thumbs Up! for Aqueen Balestier Hotel”

      My husband and I had our first anniversary and second honeymoon in Singapore and our stay at Aqueen Balestier Hotel is just great! Denifinitely CAN'T complain about anything. The hotel staff are very welcoming especially the lady named Emma. She is such a wonderful lady. The lobby and the hotel's ambience is very nice. We just loved our room at the 6th floor. The view from the window is very pleasant and the daily cleanliness of our room is just awesome! We enjoyed our stay and had a blast and will definitely stay again at this hotel if ever we have the chance to visit Singapore for the second time. One more thing is the location. It is a perfect spot for food and commute. Hawker centres are everywhere and the bus stop is just a few minutes away from the hotel. Can't beat that!

      Nice littel city hotel with clean comfortable room”

      1. Great location with access to public transport 2. Clean comfortable room and shower 3. Friendly and helpful staff

      I had a very enjoyable stay at Aqueen Hotel Balestier this time. It's proximity and ready access to public transport benefitted me as I did not rent a car and need to go to various places in Singapore for meetings. I was able to handle moving around without any issue. The hotel's room is small but very clean and comes with a nice shower. The bed is big and comfortable and service staff replenished the amenities daily. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful and very fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese. Good value for money!

      I stayed at the Aqueen Hotel Balestier in October 2012. The check in was ok, took around 10-12 m, and the staff were friendly and courteous. I booked a small single room as I had a 15 hour transit in Singapore. The bed was clean and comfortable and the room was new and well decorated. The bed side had the master light controls and it was easy to turn on/ off the lights. The room also had a window. The air con was working perfectly ok. The free internet was very fast and over all I liked the hotel. Its value for money. I will recommend this hotel to travelers on a budget! However, no breakfast was provided. You can easily get a cab outside the hotel. The drive from the hotel to changi airport cost me 16 SG Dollars. I will rate this hotel 4/5!
