Loved our time here. Had everything you need for a comfortable stay. Friendly helpful staff. Easy location to 2 train stations and bus stops. Beautiful green avenues and surrounding heritage buildings. Right across the road from a great hawker market. Plenty of surrounding restaurants and cafes. Cute rooftop bar across the road. Gorgeous intimate hotel roof top pool with views of trees and city buildings. Would happily stay here again and recommend to people. Thanks

Situated just over the road from the spectacular Tiong Baru Food Centre, this is a friendly, clean hotel with the all-important aircon necessary in Singapore in August. They have a delightful little rooftop 'infinity' pool which is perfect for cooling off, and I don't think we ever saw anyone else using it. The interior room we booked was comfy, compact and well-appointed with vintage furniture, presumably inspired by the "Nostalgia" in the name. As a base, it's perfect: Not only can you walk a couple of minutes to the local food court for a fabulous breakfast (and a cup of hot, sweet Kopi, the local wake-up juice), but it's close to a main bus route, and about 7 minutes walk from the local subway station. Public transit in Singapore is fast, cheap, and easy so if you're near to any bus stops, you can explore the whole region easily. The staff at Nostalgia were warm and helpful, and everything was spotlessly clean. If we come back, and we certainly plan to do so, then Nostalgia will definitely be on the shortlist for places to stay.

Staff was helpful and kind, and the room was luxurious. The bed is comfortable, the toilet is clean, and the room is well-maintained. The desk is a little small, but that doesn't bother me. Excellent location with a handy grocery and restaurant just a short stroll away.

Hotel Nostalgia is nicely locate near the glorious food area of Tiong Bahru Market. There are a tones of different food and price range to suit everyone and every palate. There are also a couple of MRT station la nearby - Tiong Bahru MRT (Green) Line, about 15 mins walk, and the new Havelock MRT (Brown) Line, about 6-8 mins walk. The room is cozy with a Mediterranean decor. There is even a pool upstairs. It’s a bit small to do serious laps but enough for a dip to cool off during the hot days.

We stayed at the Nostalgia for a one night stopover in Singapore. We wanted to stay in the Tiong Bahru area for its market and food court, plus the Art Deco architecture in the area, and chose the Nostalgia as it was right opposite the market. Our room was small but spotless and well-equipped. What makes this hotel special are the friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay in this area again and also at the Nostalgia.

The hotel is small but equip with adequate facilities in the room. It comes with a small fridge, kettle, complimentary coffee n teas. Nevertheless, it comes with private bath room (you need to select the room with bathroom attached). It is nearby Havelock MRT station n opposite with Tiong Bahru Market Hawker Centre by walking distance less than 200m. The famous local food Loh Mee n Chwee Kueh are located in the 1st floor above the Tiong Bahru Market

Stayed at the Hotel Nostalgia for our 30th wedding anniversary for our family trip to Singapore. There were 5 in our family group staying in 3 rooms. Rooms always neat and cleaned, staff were very attentive and helpful. Made use of the pool. The location suited us really well. We were able to do so much because of the hotel location to MRT Havelock station, great market across the road for easy breakfast, 7-11 close also. Would for sure return or recommend to others

We are repeat visitors to this very cute boutique hotel in Tiong Bahru. There have been a few post COVID 19 changes - all well integrated into the Nostalgia experience without detracting from it. The reception area has moved to the back of the hotel - better, as the parking is easier for pick up and drop off. The restaurant street side is no longer part of the hotel, but is leased, and offers a good discount for Nostalgia guests who can still enjoy sitting out in the evening. There is a doorman who is always friendly and who engages with guests to find out how to help - everything from directions to loaning me an umbrella in a downpour. Otherwise - all is pleasingly much as before. Space is small, but the rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The towels are fabulous, by the way, and the pool, whilst tiny is enough to cool off in at the end of a day's sightseeing. Proximity to the fabulous Tiong Bahru market is great (barely 50 metres) for foodies who want to indulge in local specialities for breakfast and lunch. An additional bonus is the new TEL SMRT station, (about a 500m walk) which makes getting into the CBD a breeze. There is also a bus stop just around the corner. Highly Recommended Otherwise
