“Great Value in Little India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Great location surrounded by South Indian restaurants and shops. The rooms in these budget hotels are always small but it was clean, the bed was nice and firm, the air con worked well and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I'll stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are probably quieter

I recently stayed at Santa Grand near Little India, Singapore. Jane and Shadiq did an excellent job with service and I would highly recommend this to any traveler visiting Singapore. Ask for a deluxe queen room. It is great value for the price. My only issue with this hotel was the quality of toiletries provided in the room. It was very poor. I had to get my own body gel and shampoo for a store close by. Otherwise, the AC, WIFI and service is excellent. Housekeeping is also very good.

It is very close to MRT (use Little India station and not Farrer Park). Close to good Indian restaurants if you like spicy Indian food.

Room Tip: Ask for the deluxe queen. It has more room.

Stayed in the hotel for 6 nights with family. Very Good service. Friendly staff. We were allowed early check in as we had kids traveling with us. Rooms were neat and clean. Convenient location . Closer to Little India MRT station and other Indian restaurants.
The complementary breakfast at Meera's restaurant (next door) doesn't offer much choices. A better option for restaurant for breakfast should be offered to make the experience even better.
Overall a god stay at Santa Grand Little India.

Stayed in the hotel for two days in family room. The rooms are a bit small but very neat and clean. A very convenient location for Indian vegetarian food. Most of the restaurents are within walking distance.

Stayed here for a week in May 2013.The rooms were very small and basic but very clean.Please book this hotel only if you are travelling light and with less baggage bcoz there is hardly any space left apart from the bed.The Aircon was good and worked very well.
The Staff is very courteous and helpful.The Breakfast had to be taken next door and had very little choice available.Since we came only at night it was a good experience for us.
Book the executive room since they are slightly bigger if possible.
Overall satisfied if you leave the breakfast aside

Lucky we didn't bring the cat, the room was so small, there was no room to swing it.
It was a little cramped. Being 193cm, my feet hung off the bed considerably. The bathroom was a good size with a generous shower.

Breakfast was taken at the restaurant next door. The staff appeared disinterested with our presence as they served a myriad of locals with takeaway breakfast. Breakfast consisted of 4 photographic options. Only Indian food was available, but was ok.

All up, it was a great starting point to see Little India and was very well located.

Room Tip: We had deluxe room, don't expect too much, but it is clean.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad to know that you have enjoyed your stay with us. Indeed, Little India is an Indian heritage area where Indian, culture, food and environment can be experienced. The next door Indian restaurant serves authentic local Indian breakfast and thank you for highlighting the matter to us, and we have since taken corrective actions to assure our hotel overall standard.

We recognize that some of the rooms are small, however, it may not be preferred by all travelers. We do have Santa Grand hotels in chain like Santa Grand Hotel Bugis or Santa Grand Hotel East Coast to meet the diverse need of customers.

Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

Regards,
Hotel Management Team
