Hotels Near Zenith Focus In Singapore
2.05km from downtownThe bathtub room facility is not indicated in the official website and travel booking app filters, but I chanced upon it when reading one of the traveler reviews. Limited rooms offer a bathtub at $15 upgrade fee per night. It reminds me of Carlton Hotel, and is a much better alternative than other hotels with the tub enclosed in the bathroom with solid walls.
I booked a 3D2N stay as a work stress-reliever. The location is accessible by a bus ride from Braddell or Toa Payoh MRT. There's 7-11, Starbucks, McDonald's, and other small shops in the attached mall. You can enjoy a quiet and relaxing stay away from the city center. Food at the hotel's New Ubin Seafood restaurant is tasty, and a $20 dining credit is offered to guests. From Mon to Fri, there are affordable lunch sets at $15 with $5 top-up for desserts. The Banana Gula Melaka is a must-try!
In-room dining comes in take-out containers handed in a paper bag. I had expected at least a tray service with proper cutlery. I ordered chicken porridge as it was raining. Taste is not exceptional, but the youtiao is good, with fishcake filling and lots of sesame seeds.
I came at the hotel at 2:15 pm and there's already a long queue. 20 mins later, the front desk staff asked me to check-in inside the business center where an additional counter was set-up. Cha kindly assisted me and was offered an upgrade. She initially said king-sized tub upgrade, but I realized later that it was an upgrade from city view to corner park view room. Check-in took 30 mins overall, so would recommend coming in early to get priority even if you have indicated preferences by email beforehand. They respond to emails fast, btw, and also concise and courteous. Room was not ready until an hour and a half later. I was offered a free drink at the bar while waiting, but I just opted to go for a late lunch.
Room is very clean and the bed is neatly pressed, except for a smudge of dried toothpaste on the kettle and a strand of long hair in the tub which I quickly washed off -- no big deal as I think limited housekeeping staff is rushing to serve all guests. Chiller is smaller than usual and not very cold. The pillows are dense but too soft to my liking, but the firmness of the bed is okay. Desk is a good size for work, but chair is stiff and may not be good for long sitting hours. Park view faces east so the room is not hot in the afternoon and you can enjoy a view of the pocket park and the nearby Buddhist temple. There's a smart TV, but there's no Netflix or YouTube app installed which is a shame. Analog cable TV is available with few channels and a non-working entertainment service (movie selections) which the staff clarified that the vendor is no longer supporting. I wish they had told this during check-in and also handed out the in-room dining menu which I had to ask for later on. A good entertainment system would encourage more repeat guests going for staycation, but I understand that this may not be a priority for business travelers which I think what the hotel is targeting. There are guests serving SHN and use a dedicated lobby entry and elevator.
Few guests are using the pool and gym, especially at night, even during my stay with high-occupancy rate. The service center hotline takes at least 5 rings (not busy tone) before getting picked up probably due to high occupancy. I initially thought it's not working so went down to the front desk. Staff are more friendly and approachable than intimidating 5-star business hotels.
I enjoyed my stay and had a quite relaxing holiday as I had hoped. Would definitely be back and would consider booking a room again for my family and friends when travel from the Philippines is allowed again. Direct booking costs much more even for Wyndham Rewards members, so would recommend scanning travel apps like trip.com.
2.43km from downtownMy room was very clean, and the leaking toilet was repaired soon, which was not bad. The side effect of being cheaper without windows is that people tend to get sleepy, but this is the only way to save money. There are eating places all around, which is ideal for foodies. The cleaning aunt and the front desk are very good. It takes 10 minutes to go to the coin-operated washing machine to wash clothes, which is more convenient.
2.52km from downtownEnjoyed my stay at this hotel. Location is convenient to nearby eateries, convenience store, bus stop and ZhongShan Mall. Room is considered quite spacious with basic budget hotel. But however , the toilet basin and toilet bowl were quite stink though.. Only this need to be improved.
3.04km from downtownVery nice hotel, booked for children, close to schools and commercial streets, the surrounding environment is also very good, the service is also very good, have the opportunity to experience the hotel.
3.06km from downtownThe wifi was off for a day. One or two small black spots can be seen on the quilt cover and pillowcase. For long-stay travelers, they are only cleaned twice a week. Only two bottles of water are provided every day, not one bottle too much. The windows are locked. The pool is very small and it is a bit hard to get the water. On the merits, it's clean and spacious.
3.06km from downtownGood choice for overnight stay. Location is excellent for bus traveler but far away from MRT. Famous chicken rice and rice dumpling nearby. Cleanliness ok but could find previous tenants' hair easily on corner and floor. Toilet/bathroom is small and tv has bad channel signal. Overall, overall above standard.
3.13km from downtownThe wall is super thin as the noises from the outside and even next door can be heard clearly. We even heard alarm ringing from the next room.
2.8km from downtownWow…Nice Place…Will Booking Again this place…
And will book more few night…
But air not so cold ：（

2.71km from downtownI truly love the serenity vibes it gave me. Staff are all super friendly, a very big thank you to Jasmine, Sopi, Joy, Patricia and a few staff that I met for the whole of 3 days. Yes, it's a 3 star hotel, but the service rendered by staff there is 5 stars!!! I'll be coming again this July!!! See you all again soon!!!
2.88km from downtownThe lighting is great, the bed is really comfortable, and you can rest well at night. Very satisfied, the decoration and design of the room feels very good. This location is too convenient. It is about 7 minutes walk from Metro Line 5 to ensure that all major attractions can be reached. A quiet and beautiful time is the travel attitude I want. It is very interesting here! To sum up, it is worth the money.
3.17km from downtownThe hotel facilities are a bit old, but the service is very good 👍 The check-in and check-out procedures are simple and quick. During the epidemic, body temperature was taken at the door, and the breakfast was changed to a buffet for one person. The taste was good, but there were fewer staff at breakfast, which may be affected by the epidemic.
3.07km from downtownThe service was impeccable.
My husband and I arent aware that during Covid, all hotels with attached balconies have to be locked.
The main reason for our stay is to stargaze and catch the moon that at that particular night.
It was upsetting and it was beyond anyones control due to the circumstances, however the Indian Lady that served us, managed to upgrade and swap our rooms.
The room we got exceeded our expectations, we were still able to do what we wanted.
And it was the highlight of my birthday as well.
All in all we had a great experience, the rooms were well maintained, service is amazing and will come back again! (Hopefully next time round we are able to use the balcony!)
Hotels Near Zenith Focus In Singapore Review
Prior to check-in date, the hotel had contacted via phone and email for pre-arrival check. It’s great that manager Jason was able to confirm the baby cot that I had requested when making the reservation.
On arrival, the bell had promptly came over to help with our luggage. This is helpful as there seems to be only stairs at the driveway as I can’t find another alternative.
Once I stepped into the lobby, I noticed a refreshing scent that lifted my mood. While waiting for my room key, I was presented with welcome drinks. They had assisted to show the way to the room, along they way we were brought to the spa area and the guest service also shared that there is a aeroponics farming area next to the spa reception. Even though it’s only 2nd floor but we were amazed with room’s high ceiling, something that most of us don’t have it at home. Their floor to ceiling window let in good amount of natural lighting into the room. I lived the complimentary healthy snacks that’s placed in the room together with the complimentary still and sparking water. The spacious room once again hit the right spot to make your feel relaxed and calm.
During the stay, we visited that aeroponics area again as we were mesmerized by how easy plants could be grown indoor. I remembered there is a plant called lemon balm, Liza was very kind to share with us how this aeroponics farming works and gave us some of the lemon balm leaves. I added the lemon balm leaves into the sparking water that was available in the room for a refreshing drink to end of the night.
Breakfast was great with the usual western and continental selection, what’s more interesting is their five dim sum warrior breakfast set and also their barramundi mixed oat congee. You must try these when you are there.
I will like to thank a couple of people who we had interacted with and had made our stay pleasant: Jason for the wonderful connecting room arrangement, Liza who was at the wellness lounge area at around 9pm and she took the effort to share with us their interesting Grobrix aeroponic system and the plants growing there, Xiao Yun, Joey and Hanish who cleaned and sanitised the room. There are many more of them, I wished I could remember all their names.
There is so much more to write and share, but one thing that I should not missed is that you have to stay two nights to truly experience a good retreat from the usual hassle and bustle. It’s definitely different from staying at the city hotel. If you want a good rejuvenating experience, please check out this hotel.
Stayed at the 2 bedroom deluxe room for my family of 4, which is a rare find for us. Typically we will get 2 interconnecting rooms. But this 2 bedroom arrangement comes with a living hall which is good for family bonding. The only downside is that there is only 1 bathroom, and 1 powder room (we took it quite well ... treat it as if we ate staying at a Japanese ryokan which only has 1 bathroom) ... 😄
Overall location, cleanliness, facilities and service are above standard. However, the sound insulation is poor in the room I stayed in - 0705. I could hear the motorbike from the road and other guests chatting along the corridor. It could be an issue for light sleepers.
I booked this place on a long layover in Singapore, and this place is so cool! Now, the showers and amenities are pretty much like most hostels (nothing special, but more than adequate), but the pod itself was actually quite nice! Inside feels very futuristic, and it comes with your own power outlets and a/c. Bedding and pillow were soft, and the Chinatown location is a plus!
Just 2 days before my check-in date, I've already given a 5 stars rating! Reason? I received an email from the hotel to do eCheck-ins! Upon doing so, I also received another email for booking of breakfast, pools, gyms etc! OMG! How many hotels have this super convenient and how many of you had even queued from 3pm for hours for check-ins? This is my first and the best hotels experience even before I step into the hotel! THIS IS REALLY AWESOME! Oh, I haven't started to comment on my staycation yet ah... Yap, not yet, and on top of that, an sms was sent a day before allocating a much earlier time(I don't wanna share the exact timings but you'll never imagine! 🤭) to avoid crowdings. And can you imagine 1 day before my check-in date, I've completed all my eCheck-ins, breakfast, gym and pool bookings! On the check-in date, I just scan the QR code which was issued and it took less than 5-10mins for the staff to prepare the room cards for us to start our staycation! Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful everywhere! As for the room and breakfast, I'll just let the photos do the talkings! 👍
The location is very good, the subway is 5-10 minutes walk, but it is a bit old, watching furniture is very chronological, haha, the exterior wall is also very popular in Nanyang style, there are characteristics, service enthusiasm, direct Chinese communication Just fine, it’s early, but there is room for check-in. It’s very nice. It’s very lively at night, and there are a lot of things to eat at night market.
I really enjoyed staying ar this hotel because all the workers are super friendly & they allowed Grab Food/Fooda Delivery.
Basically this Hostels is just AWESOME! 👍🏻 I recommend this Hostel to all the Backpackers out there. Good Work, everyone! Keep it up! 👌🏻
The rooms were spacious. Location’s really convenient. The customer service was superb! They would legit make sure you have a good stay at the hotel. I really would love to come back again primarily is because of the customer service they provided for us. It was a memorable experience.
The service is much better than before. The hygienic sheets and quilts need to be checked carefully. I hope I don’t have such sheets next time I stay. I wasted my time to change rooms, at least they should be clean.
The hotel is located in a good location. There are many food centers around. If you want to do something for yourself, there are supermarkets and food markets. It is very convenient to buy things. It is also close to the subway. The hotel is very clean, and the public bathrooms are also cleaned. There are two floors with ladies-only bathrooms. Because of the special period, there are few people staying in the store, so it is not crowded.
Everything here is perfect!
We booked it for a mini-moon right after our solemnisation and was greeted with warmth and surprises! They surprised us a bottle of champagne and a cake for the night!
The service crews were super friendly, thoughtful and always with a smile on! Everybody here was really attentive and the service provide were very guest focused.
The breakfast served was delicious and hearty. We were also served with evening cocktails that comes with light bites and unlimited cocktails to taste! The in room dining we ordered was great too! We could dine at the balcony and it was really romantic.
The overall environment here is serene and pleasant that allows you to recharge and relax. It made us felt like we are overseas in a resort.
A big shoutout and thank you to everyone at The Barracks Hotel for making our mini moon memorable and for all the warmth and hospitality during our stay here.
We love it and definitely returning back again! 💜
overall a really clean & neat hotel. i've been here for over 3 times. however this time, i didn't get a fridge in my room because all of the rooms with fridge are fully booked :(
The hotel location is particularly good, just outside the subway station.
There is a free breakfast, 7-11 downstairs, and eating is very convenient.
The outdoor swimming pool and terrace on the top floor of the hotel are not too comfortable, the night view is superb.
You can walk directly to Chinatown and Clarke Quay, next to Songfa Bak Kut Teh and Ya Kun, Hainan Chicken Rice, and everything is very convenient.
The only thing is that the room is really small and the boxes cannot be tiled on the floor. The bathroom is also small.
The lobby of the hotel lobby is super soft and comfortable! !! !! The day before I left, because I was still early for the departure time, I rested on the sofa for nearly 2 hours and fell asleep, but the sister at the front desk was not stunned. After I woke up, the sister asked me that I was too tired to play yesterday.
There are so many foreigners in the hotel and almost no Chinese are seen. The hotel staff is Malay, with an accent in English and no Chinese.
The hotel is very clean and tidy. Staff are very firendly polite. The cafe Lodge in the hotel have alot of variety of foods. Asian/Western/foods. A lot of nice promotions foods. I have a take away breadfast is very good. Miss Erica working the cafe. She is very friendly and helpful person. In ordering my food for take away. I bought a box of mooncake from the cafe. Is very nice taste and have alots of flavour.. The room inthe hotel is spacious and clean. Nice vacation in Ywca stay. Thank 😊 to the staffs and management.
This place has very, very good customer service which i must first commend in the first sentence of this review. I was there for 3 days and two nights and there was the same staff throughout my stay, day and night. But he was friendly, helpful and jovian. It actually seemed like he was the one who did absolutely everything in the hotel. Be aware that this hotel IS in the red light district of Singapore. My room was a single bed room, and the only single bed room in the already small hotel. It was unfortunately crawling with ants along the wall, a tile or two had chipped or fell off. The wall hiding behind the toilet door wasn't to die for either, the room didn't feel complete, but it was livable. I did get the opportunity to go into the other rooms, the double bed room and family room. Those were definitely more decent, they felt cleaner and were better maintained. They even had a cosy feel to them. It comes with breakfast in the vicinity's small kitchen. Don't expect a wide spread or a 4 star hotel breakfast, but it was pretty decent for it's standard. Bread, a fruit, protein (eggs, tuna or others), rice or porridge. There are plenty of food around the area, hawkers mostly. But there are three mrt stations within walking distance, and Paya Lebar Square is about 900m (12 - 18min walk) from the hotel. In all, it isn't a place for fussy stayers. But if you're pretty easy going, don't want to pay premium prices for an accommodation and get your own room and toilet, then one can definitely consider this place.
Basic hotel. They upgraded us to the superior room. Unfortunately no chair in the room so can't really work on my laptop.
Room is relatively clean. However we had a couple of noisy neighbors talking very loudly, even up to 2am :(. Hope they have people checking on guests to keep noise down
I think I am the most objective evaluation:
1. Hotel location: too golden! You can walk to Outram Park subway station when you go out, wherever you go! The last train of the subway is around 11:30, and you can play until late (because the gate is the one-day bar street, the lights are bright, and it is safe)
2, the service is good, too late in the morning and check-in time, can also store luggage
3. Okay to say the disadvantages: The room is very small, the same size as Hong Kong, and the single room I booked can only sleep and bath, and it has a slight odor (I feel it is harmless, because I am Come alone to play, come out early and return late, just go back to sleep, and the price is more than 350, there is no need for it, the youth hostel has 150 beds, this is a good single room!
4. Suggestion: Only suitable for one person or same-sex friends to play and live!
If you are a couple, it's better to live!
Come out alone and really recommend five stars! There is everything nearby, the traffic is too convenient, and it is quick to go to Sentosa. I walk around and feel that the surrounding Bugis MRT station is particularly lively. I eat a lot and recommend it!
Had a night stay at Artiste Suite. Location is good.
Cleanliness can be improved. There were dusts on the pantry area, on the wireless/bluetooth/radio on the table bedside, and at the toilet underneath the mirror.
The television is a smart tv, but was not able to connect to the Internet. It needs a LAN cable or some usb for wireless. Called the reception and was informed it was not a smart tv. So be prepared there's no netflix or prime videos nor YouTube. A tad disappointed but that means I also enjoyed quality time resting both on the bed and in the bathtub, enjoying the view, having both dinner and breakfast at the balcony.
The overall experience from level 1 to level 6 where artiste room is located was good. The room offers privacy which was awesome.
Since the room comes with an outdoor balcony, be prepared to have lizards coming by.
Overall, it was an awesome experience.
Location wise is very convenient. Bus stops everywhere, clarke quay and funan mall nearby and most importantly, for all the supper freaks, there are 7-11 nearby and also restaurants.
Cleanliness was super bad. The remote controls, table, counter, sink, cups and spoons were so dusty. I can swipe in one finger and accumulate all the dust. The carpet had a huge stain near the fridge and a funky smell. The fridge was musty and dirty but bed is super clean. I guess it has been long since someone used that room but I expected it to be clean as it is a standard procedure for Housekeepers to clean up the rook before guests checks in.
For service, it was neutral. Did what I requested and gave me an expected service but did not exceed my expectations. I requested to check out 2 hours later and they did manage to extend the check out. However, on the last day of our stay, we got locked out of the door because the staff forgot to change the system on the door. So our time was delayed. Lastly, after checking out, there was no closure of service from any of the staff so we just left.
For amenities, there were no towels in the toilet and the TV couldn’t airplay/ mirror screen to my phone even though the feature was available on the TV. TV channels was super slow. Other than that, everything was provided.
Conveniently located. Near bus stops and mrt station.
My children loved the bunk bed setup and the complimentary snacks.
Slightly lack of amenities like no tissue paper (there is toilet paper) and no conditioner and tiny bathroom. But it is good enough for a short stay.
The hotel location is very near to bugis junction and it is quite cosy, cleanliness is okay but the sink have some leaking issues and the water heater only heat up for a few seconds. But the cleaner auntie is very nice and i would recommend to anyone who wanna stay!
Booked last minute. Was expecting a bathtub but the room did not have one but I supposed it was because we booked so late in the night.
Very spacious and comfortable. Aircon is really really cold and the tv have good number of movies and channels to watch. Shower area is big enough for two.
Called for late check out and was granted. We love the breakfast. We have to make our way down and we can choose whatever we want to eat. Staff are all helpful, nice and friendly. Would definitely come back again.
Small yet cosy industrial-chic hotel. The bed's comfortable and the room is clean. Our room's toilet drain was clogged thus it caused a little flooding but we made do with it and informed the Front Desk only upon checkout. The Guest Services Officer acknowledged the issue and quickly arranged for a technician to rectify it. Service has been great overall. Thank you, Hotel Yan 👍🏻☺️
I've been to this hotel several times. The customer service is usually good. I extended my stay and moved to Cabin M. But I had a very unpleasant experience this time round with the live chat officer Claude. I understand that late check out is based on availability. But Claude was being unreasonable, telling me that the hotel is fully booked when the room I stayed in was still available on trip app. He also said there is no late check out on Sundays but I usually get complimentary check out atleast till 12.30 on my previous stays on a Sunday before. Extremely disappointing and thus I've to give 1 star for the service where I usually give a 5.
Well located, really nice staff for everything, including informations. Bed was comfortable, good shower, breakfast simple but ok. The 2 biggest problems are the travellers who don't respect the sharing room after 23h00 (need a corfu or to be advise) and the room on the street side with a restaurant open 24/24, are to to noisy. You just get little sleep. Coming from Airport, with MRT get off at Jelan Besar exit B, turn right, walk to Dickson Road. To take the bus via Malaysia, walk via Jelan Besar, turn left and right on Weld Road, it will be on your right (3.5MYR)
Always had a good stay at Conforto Hotel but this time round, it wasn't tat👍.. The tv was not working as it had no signal.. The bed was kinda noisy as i toss and turn.. The hotel should change the bed as it seems kinda fragile..
Miss the Chinese lady who used to work there.. She was very helpful whenever i asked to change room.
Very friendly staff, they will answer any questions you have and will greet you with a smile. The location is suitable, there is a bus stop located very close which is convenient. The breakfast is simple but some toast, cereal and coffee it good for me. The bathrooms are always clean, and there is always hot water. The rooms are clean with convenient storage. If traveling to Singapore by yourself specially for my ladies this is a good place to stay. Oh and there is an amazing ice cream shop close bya and may restaurants.
We booked the family room. It was really compact, but our kids were very happy cos they had to experience the bunk bed. They even refused to leave and cant wait to get back to the room cos they just love the bunk beds. However, if u are staying for a few days, it might get a bit uncomfortable and squeezy because the room is really too ‘cozy’.
We felt that the placement of the plugs were not strategic - they were very far from the main bes and in between the bunk beds, may not be safe as it is near kids and they may play with the plugs. It was hard to charge our phones while resting on our bed cos the plugs were too far… also no bedside table or shelf to put our phones or even remote control...
Table is the kids table so adults have to sit on the floor while eating with kids. Perhaps not so suitable for those who may not be able to sit on the floor for long periods or pregnant mums.
However, location is very very convenient. Food is just a few steps away and no worries about it. Parking was ok too, night parking was affordable - maybe try not to park too long if u are planning to drive here cos no complimentary parking. But we managed to get parking space in front of the hotel so that’s a bonus for us (although we had to make a few rounds for ppl to leave before securing a parking lot.
Due to being near a main road, it gets very noisy at night with cars speeding, so light sleepers may need to consider some ear plugs? Otherwise, bed is comfy but abit too high - not suitable for old folks or heavily pregnant women. :)
Overall, for a one night stay, we still enjoyed ourselves and enjoyed the hotel. Not much facilities, so it’s really more of a hotel to place things and then get out and explore sg.
I would still return back because it’s really a nice hotel, convenient and affordable! 👍🏻
Staff is very friendly too!
Everything was good but the bed abit dirty and the room is super small toilet too. When bathing ur clothes in the toilet will get wet as they didn’t have anything to separate toilet and bathroom so I would recommend people to put their clothes outside the Toilet if you don’t want it to get wet. Their service is very good they would help you solve your issues that you are having right away! TV is internet TV so can watch Disney+ and HBO etc but sadly no Netflix app. So overall I would rate 7/10
We’ve been to Arcadia plenty of times and always enjoyed our stay. This time around we got a room on the 1st floor. It was bigger than other rooms of its kind. We were worried there might be more sound disturbances on the lower levels but were pleasantly surprised not to encounter any such issues. As usual, service staff were prompt, pleasant and very friendly.
