6.91km from Tampines ConcourseStaffs at the front desk (both young and mature staff), maintainence and housekeeping are really patient and friendly. Checked in over the weekend and got a corner room at a higher floor as I have requested for it. But had to ask for a change as the aircon wasn’t working well and was suffocating from the heat in the room. The room was tiny and was given 2 single beds combined into one. Wasn’t a big fan of sleeping in between 2 single beds. But the front desk staff helped me change my room to a lower floor in the middle location after 2 staff came to check. One suggested I close the curtain to let the room cool down while another was better and came inside the room to check if it was because he came in from outside so it felt hot. Still it didn’t help that I was still feeling hot. But it could just be me who can’t stand heat.
I was skeptical if the room on the lower floor will be quiet but had no choice as they only had that room available over the weekend. Once inside the aircon worked wonders within 5 minutes. As it faces the back alley where I’m situated in between the alley pathway, people tend to go there for a smoke and start chatting. Normally it is alright as it last only for a while but was pretty unlucky as the first night a group of four people purchased beer and chatted at the back alley while smoking all night from 6pm till after midnight. It was a pain as you can hear them chatting away nonstop. But thank goodness after the first night, the group of four didn’t appear.
Had a good stay there as the room I was at had bushes from the lower level which was overgrown and birds love to visit to feast on the nectar from the flowers so I kind of had real life National Geographic channel broadcasting just outside the window. It was a sight to chill and enjoy watching the birds. The windows were wide from ceiling to floor so you can still watch the sunset daily even if it’s been blocked somewhat by the shophouses. Would have preferred a unblocked view from the window to watch sunset but just didn’t work out. Overall it was a nice experience with the chirping birds and still manage to do a self retreat. Some noises here and there but it’s not persistent so was lucky.
Have to add that I extended my stay and highlighted to the staff it will be good if they can place me at a higher floor as I like their view to watch the sunset. They accommodated and place me on the highest level corner room which was the same room I was given the first time round but one level higher. Same issue happened and the aircon seems to be working but it doesn’t seem to cool down the room and I felt suffocated plus the room had a smell which later I realized it came from the toilet. But they were very nice and let me opened up the window for an hour to air the room. In the end I asked to change the room as I was not able to get used to the heat and the staff was really nice and let me have the previous room which I have been staying throughout.
Am grateful to the staff for their patience and accommodating to my room change twice! Thank you for making my stay a good one.
