We stayed for just one night for our flight layover. The location is great since we're able to just walk to the nearest Metro station, and at the same we strolled around and enjoyed the view. Price is reasonable too.

Footwears are prohibited in bathroom and sleeping room area, they provided a locker to keep your shoes and sandals in the corridor. The bed is really comfortable and clean. Breakfast is also great—I had delicious dumplings for breakfast. They also provided water dispenser in the...

We only stayed 1 night, which I feel was enough. It's fun. The actual pod we slept in was fine. I hadn't expected it to be spacious and was pleasantly surprised. They served breakfast too! My husband had booked the Pod and I thought that we'd be "slumming it". Well, it's a more posh version of "slumming it". Warning: it...

The design of the hotel was cool. They provide a safe cupboard to keep your valuable things and only can open with your access card. Don't forget to ask ear plug if you stay in dorm. I had to wake up couple times when somebody packed up their thing in the middle night

The facilities are superb. Fast & free wifi, clean bed, clean & very nice bathroom, variety of buffet breakfast, very helpful staff. Aircon in the room could be set at a bit lower temperature, especially when full house. Had to wait for the food when many people had breakfast at the same time. Long walk from the train station but...

Everything was as expected and the photos and reviews didn't let me down! I stayed in a single suite room and had the table and upper bunk. Size was as expected. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, the aircon was a bit too cold at first but they made it warmer at my request. (2 airconditioners service 5 pods through...

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.
