Great location! Love the fact that the popular sup tulang merah is just next door. This boutique hotel is furnished tastefully. Very clean. Pathways to the room feels like you're in some Arabian maze. Food is okay but my advice is to just go out and taste the Singapore flavor rather than eating at the hotel. At night, lots of...

We adored our stay at The Sultan. The staff were very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. We stayed in one of the Puteri rooms which was absolutely divine! The room was comfortable and clean with plenty of room to store our belongings. Lovely hotel in the heart of Kampong Glam, our stay over the Christmas period was made...

We had a staycation here this month. This was once a printing house before being converted into a hotel. The facilities are first class and the room is clean. The staff is friendly and very well trained. Enjoyed our stay.

Without a doubt, the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Problems include: - Prostitutes marching up down and being picked up and dropped off all along the street, including from the hotel itself on occasion. Admittedly not their fault, but not what you expect from a four star hotel. - A nightclub inside the hotel open daily until around...

We stayed here in March 2017 and were very disappointed. We originally booked a Sultan room which was very small and dark. The window looked across to the window of another room! The air conditioning was unbelievably loud. We were so disappointed that we paid to upgrade to a Puteri Room which is much more spacious, and while the air...

It is a boutique hotel.. use to be old shop houses.. so the room is a bit small for a family of four.. our room is two level and the staircase is a bit steep..not advisable for family with small kids. If you drive, parkings will be near the roads.. need to look around for parking.. but location wise is...

The hotel is very nice and the room we had was a good size for a couple. Furniture and room in a modern, clean and nice deco. However, VERY DISAPPOINTED by the cleanness of the sheets and towels. Very old with lots of holes and dirty blood traces... I have never experienced that in a hotel before. What a shame!...

This is an excellent hotel. Be mindful that the rooms are asian in style and are small if you are a westerner. However, this place is filled with character. The mosque is close by, so you can hear morning prayers and prayers throughout the day. It's a great place for locals and tourists alike. Haji lane is a short walk...

The Sultan is a great hotel that has been remodeled to show the elegance of a long past era. The rooms are tad bit small but they are quiet and are elegant. We loved the showers with the trough where the water goes into. The location was good - near the subway and just a block from Kampong Glam. The...

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.

The distinctive building which houses The Sultan’s main lobby is so prized for its historical and cultural relevance, and architectural beauty, that it has appeared on a 1996 Singapore postage stamp.
