This place is rubbish. Good for a one-off staycation and expect to see many couples here during weekends. Studio M is under the millennium hotel group, a very trustworthy local brand but this unique boutique hotel is a little disappointing.

Firstly, they are not doing a very good job to upkeep the place as there are visible damages to the walls in the corridor and the table and stairs inside the loft rooms.

It is definitely a fun space having the loft but the toilet is for pets. Your little dogs and cats can pee inside in comfort but not for human beings. Shower and toilet bowls are separate tiny rooms and i think if you drop your soap while showering, you might hit your head bending down to take it. Tiles used for the toilet will also remind you of a clean public pool toilet.

The location is perfect for exploring the robertson quay area, thats all.

Prior to my stay, I had heard a lot of good reviews on Studio M Hotel and also saw many pictures of its rooms. What caught my eye was the unique design of the room, which was like a loft. I thought it would be a good change from those cookie-cutter hotel rooms. Hence, I booked the room a night and stayed there with my friend.

The Bad:
The check-in counter is shaped like a circle, and there were 3 to 4 people all situated within the 'circle', helping people to check in. Well, yes it is super cool and different but I guess most hotels do not have that for a reason. Guests do not know where and how to queue. So, one must basically try to spot the fastest staff and try to queue for that staff. To me, this is neither fair nor efficient. It is especially frustrating for tourists, as they would have to wait for a long time with their luggage.

The bathroom, or rather, cubicle, was just way tooo small!!! Also, for a studio hotel that boasts about its design, the shower cubicle was rather disappointing. Also, the glass panel in the shower (for sitting?) was quite irritating as it was impossible to avoid touching it while showering, and it is WAY TOO COLD.

Thirdly, I don't know if I was spooked or what, but there is this red stain/droplet that keeps reappearing on the plastic chair after I had wiped it away several times. Luckily we only stayed for a night.....

Oh ya, please don't expect much of the pool as well.

The Good:
I have to admit that when I entered the room, I was going 'ooooh and aaaaaah' due to the unique design. The bed was suuuuuper comfortable! I slept like a baby that night.

The WIFI in the room was pretty good as well.

Conclusion:
I had stayed in express hotels before and I am sad to say that Studio M is not really up there for me. There are certain things that I am particular about (especially the bathroom!) and hence, I would not go back to Studio M anymore.

When I got to the check in counter, I had to wait for a bit as there were not many counters open and it looked like they were a little short staffed. I was given a free upgrade from Studio Loft to Premier Loft, not sure of the reason but I'm guessing that there were enough rooms?

I did not expect the room to be that small actually. The concept of the interior design seemed to be very focused on space saving. The toilet and showering room was separate but both were extremely cramped up. It took a while to get used to the small space available in the toilets but it was not a huge issue. I actually really liked the idea of how the room was set up. Upon exploring, i discovered that there were a lot of hidden spaces that could be used for storage. Really clever designing!

The premier loft was divided into two levels. Bed and tv upstairs and everything else downstairs. The bed was cozy and was just nice for some snuggling in in the mornings.

I was a little disappointed with the breakfast spread. I had expected a larger variety of choices for breakfast but was met with limited choices. I might be over expecting though. I would suggest for new visitors to familiarize yourselves with the environment before checking in so that you would not be spending majority of your time looking for places after you check in!
