Mayo Inn

Set on very busy Jalan Besar, which is currently a mess of construction for a new SMRT station, the Mayo Inn doesn't look like much from outside, but if you're a heavy sleeper looking for clean and functional well-kept lodgings, you could do much worse.

The hotel describes their rooms as being of a "Japanese style" which seems to mean that the bed mattress is on the floor -- there's not a tatami mat or sliding wooden door panel in sight. That said, the rooms are (by Singaporean standards) of a good size for the money and they all have their own private bathroom. Facilities are simple: a kettle, drinking water, a stool (though not really a usable desk), free WiFi, a minibar and, once you heave the heavy curtain out of the way, the rooms can be quite bright and airy. There's also a decently sized wall-mounted flatscreen TV. The main issue here is the noise. If you're a light sleeper, or at least one that is easily disturbed, Mayo Inn probably isn't for you -- the room we looked at on the third floor was still catching quite a bit of traffic noise and it wasn't a very busy time of day. Staff are as friendly as the elevator is slow -- that's to say the elevator is extremely slow -- and ta few simple restaurants can be found nearby. You're essentially paying less than what you'll pay at a Hotel 81 but with a dollop more character. Mayo Inn is roughly halfway between Little India and Bugis MRT and a 10-minute walk to either. Once the new SMRT station opens it should be just about right beside the hotel. Family rooms sleep three and the deluxe is up top with a terrace, but we were unable to take a look.
