To be blunt, Hotel Vagabond is not at all your typical Singapore hotel experience. The design goal was to be hipper, edgier and a contrast to the mega-hotels that line Orchard and the Marina. The rooms are quirky but small. My wife and I were upgraded to a top-floor junior suite. Not really a suite, but I think somewhat larger...

This small boutique hotel offers one of the most unique experience to stay in Singapore. Located in Little India area it has a French design with unique lobby and friendly staff. Room is small though but sufficiently comfortable and clean. I like its a la carte breakfast where you will sit in the red sofa with multiple hanging picture taken...

I usually stay in the Orchard or Marina areas, but decided to give the Hotel Vagabond a try. It's a smaller, boutique hotel with a lot of character affiliated with Starwood/Marriott. It's located between Little India and Kampong Glam and easily walkable to Raffles, Marina, and other areas. My room was smaller than other hotels I've stayed at in Singapore,...

The Vagabond is centrally located in the Indian quarter in Singapore (39, Syed Alwi Road). I informed them two weeks in advance by email that I would arrive late after 10:00pm. When I arrived at the hotel, no one was at the reception. The guy cleaning the floors opened the door for me and had me seated in the lobby....

Great boutique hotel, luxurious rooms and fantastic ambiance. The best part was that the hotel was able to arrange private pick up when I arrived at 3am from the States. The staff is very friendly and always helpful, I truly enjoyed my stay and will come back for sure.
