This self-billed "businessman’s boutique hotel" opened in early 2011 and has a great location almost opposite Dhoby Ghaut SMRT and a short walk to Orchard Road, The Istana and Fort Canning Park.

The deluxe room we were shown was a lot more impressive than what they have on their website -- a large flatscreen TV, plenty of bench working space, a comfortable bed with two bedside lamps and a surprising amount of cat-swinging space. Cheerful rainbow colouring and bright, with plenty of natural light throughout, our room was considerably better than we expected given the staid exterior of the hotel. The Innotel doesn’t have a swimming pool and when we asked after it the staff quipped, "Innotel is a businessman’s boutique hotel and the guests are working, not swimming" -- this is definitely a hotel aimed more at the business market. That said, the location is excellently positioned for shopaholics who want to save on a hotel to spend up even bigger and, with some advance booking, there are some better rates to be had. The ground floor is home to a craft-ish beer joint. For this kind of money we’d prefer to be in a more boutiquey smaller property, but if you prefer a bigger hotel without too much of a bigger bill, this is a solid option. Other places nearby of a similar pedigree include the Big Hotel (slightly cheaper and smaller rooms) and the Ibis (similar all-round), both over Bencoolen way. Closer to home there’s the YMCA, but this is a better choice than there if you don’t need a swimming pool. Staff are professional and helpful.
