Ramada @ Zhongshan or Parkroyal @ Kitchner road?

Hi,

I am traveling to Singapore with my wife and a 4 yr old. We are planning to use SSH and stay for 5 nights. I am looking for spacious hotels near Little India and preferably serving good breakfast.

I have narrowed down to Ramada at Zhongshan and Parkroyal at Kitchner road as the options through SSH are limited.

I would like to know other people's opinions and any other suggestions.

Thanks,

Wouldn't stay at either really. Wouldnt limit you hotel choice by breakdpfast either. Breakfast are easily obtained at place outside the hotel or at a neighbouring hotel. Little India is also not the place for spacious / quality hotels either. . Other than One Farrer and AlberCourt at eith end of Serangoon road, they all tend to be budget affairs with tiny rooms and small bathrooms.

Sometimes moving up to the next category of SSH hotel for a few extra dollars gets you a much much better place.

Parkroyal Kitchener has more spacious rooms than Zhongshan and the location is better.

The breakfast at Parkroyal Kitchener is focused mainly on Indian food.

There is currently a construction site near Parkroyal Kitchener. Maybe you can consider 30 Bencoolen, newly renovated and not that far from Little India.

Thanks to all for replies.

I am happy to consider other options if the hotels are in SSH list and near Little India in a walking distance . What other areas come near to it and which other hotels would be better ?

May i know the reason you want to be near Little India?

Village Hotel Albert is also in a very convenient location near Little India but the rooms start from 19 sq m and there is no swimming pool.

Just ease of access to Indian restaurants as what I have heard (This is our first trip hence I am not sure !)

I am happy to consider nearby alternatives as well. We are going to spend 5 nights there and planning to get SSH as well.

All suggestions are appreciated and welcome :-)

Ramada is not really near to Little India - 30mins by bus.

Parkroyal Kitchener (you can probably request for rooms not facing the construction site) and Village Hotel Albert Court are the nearest ones followed by 30 Bencoolen (12-15min walk).
