Hotel Review: South East Asia Hotel Singapore

by - Monday, January 30, 2017

South East Asia Hotel is one of the oldest hotel in Singapore, established in 1953. It has been a choice of many because it's budget friendly, more spacious room (compared to others), comes with a free breakfast, very accessible by bus or MRT and also to shopping areas like Bugis Junction, Sim Lim Square and many more.

» Location «

The hotel is located in 190 Waterloo Street beside Kuan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple. 

» Booking Procedure «

We can't find the hotel booking either in Agoda or so we proceeded to the hotel's website: and filled-up the reservation form using this link:

My cousin did all the booking procedures and email exchanges with them. We reserved for 3 nights there and payed for our first night. Here are the prices but it may vary based on hotel policies:

Standard room:             SGD$ 100.00

Superior room:              SGD$ 120.00
Triple room:                  SGD$ 130.00
Family room (4 adults):  SGD$ 160.00 

All rates are inclusive of government taxes. How cheap, right? Considering the high-cost of living in Singapore.

» Arrival «

We arrived at night time and the rooms were ready when we got there. We paid for our remaining balances and slept on our respective rooms.

» Facilities «

Don't expect everything from this hotel because it's a budget hotel.

» Rooms «

Here's the view of our room when we arrived. The room is a bit dark but we didn't mind because we just need a good bed to rest and a safe place to spend our nights.

Here's the view of our room after we went back to the hotel (the 2nd day). They offer daily housekeeping, which is great.

» Restaurant Area «

The restaurant area for the breakfast section is a bit small but we didn't bother it at all. 

» Daily Breakfast «

Just choose between Vegetarian Buffet or Continental Breakfast. I chose the Continental Breakfast.

It's a great stay if you're a budget traveller. But if you're in Singapore for a luxurious stay, this hotel is not for you.

How about? Have you been to Singapore? Where did you stay?
