Great boutique hotel with good location, I loved the room and getting handy phone made my stay in SG so hassle-free and easy, only thing I was not happy was the shower.

My partner and I spent two nights here. Our room was really lovely - comfy bed, inviting decor and nice shower. We were also given a loan mobile phone for free local calls and internet usage during our stay, which was extremely helpful as we didn't have a local SIM card. The hotel is in an excellent location and only... More

The place was like a hidden gem in the busy city. I love the decor, the wooden doors and windows. The stay was comfortable and i love the area. Kitchen was halal too so it is covenient for muslims. Walking distance to the masjid, haji lane.

Stayed here on a quick visit to Singapore. The location was brilliant, walking distance to everything! The rooms are small but perfectly formed. Everything you need is here, and the little care packages of food and free drinks was great. I also loved the free use of the Handy cellphone. Breakfast was nice. Great spot in an expensive city.

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.
