we spent 2 nights in the sultan hotel. great service, helpful staff and clean & calm rooms. Great for a city trip. the mrt is only a 10 minute walk away. there are two stations in same distance. lavender and bugies, depends on what direction you need. breakfast was ok. perfect for a short trip.

The room is very well laid out with complimentary mini bar, wifi. I must admit I didn't try their restaurant or Jazz bar, as there were just so... More

I made The Sultan my home base during a four night stay in Singapore and I'm glad I stayed put. There are a few things to love about the hotel: 1. Architecturally, the hotel is stunning. It's a boutique hotel built by combining several colonnaded buildings of the Arab Quarter. Arab flavor abounds inside, from Venetian arches to mosaic pattern... More

The Sultan is a 64-room shop house style boutique hotel, nestled right in the heart of culturally vibrant Kampong Glam. Faithfully preserved and recreated from traditional Singaporean shop houses; The Sultan retains many beautiful architectural features that hark back to a time in Singapore’s past when Kampong Glam was a bustling shopping and trading district and shop houses were magnificently built with great arches and columns to be used by owners as both their personal residence and their place of business. 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. At The Sultan, you won’t have to give up the perks of modern comforts and luxuries to get a taste of old world Singapore charm.Priding itself on good ol’ Singaporean hospitality, each and every single member of The Sultan family looks forward to making your stay one that is truly memorable. Be it a personalized walking tour through Kampong Glam, or just making sure you get your breakfast just the way you like it, The Sultan family hopes that you find in The Sultan a haven from the hustle and bustle, a refuge from the blazing Singapore heat, a home away from home.The Sultan boasts 64 hotel guest rooms, offering 8 different room types to cater to our guests’ different budgets and needs.
