“Top location for Little India”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Stayed here for two nights during a stopover. Ideally located right in the heart of Little India surrounded by shops, food courts etc. and about a 5 minute walk from the MRT station. Big supermarket along the road in one direction and big shopping malls the other way, including the Mustafa Centre just along the road. Rooms are fairly small but have everything you need for a short stay and we found the staff very friendly and helpful. Be warned that Little India gets VERY busy on Sunday nights when all the male Indian workers congregate on their day off. Amazing atmosphere but can be a bit daunting for the ladies.

Room Tip: Can be a bit noisy in the street facing rooms especially Sunday nights.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your great review. We are glad to know that you had a pretty good stay with us overall.

For the location,Little India is an Indian heritage area where Indian, culture, food and environment can be experienced. Singapore is a safe place and the males that you have mentioned are mainly (Indian)foreign workers enjoying their weekend and they are generally not a problem given. In fact, there are some guests commented that you do not need to go to New Delhi to see India!

Thank you again for sharing your experience with us on TripAdvisor and we look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

Regards,
Hotel Management Team

Really enjoyed the stay here for 4 nights (Middle of August). Situated at a ideal location near all the hotels and shopping in Little India, the stay was very pleasant. Stayed in a single room and the room was small but that was not a concern for me as I travelled alone. The price was very good and value for money. Walkable distance to Mustafa. There is a good indian restaurant just opposite to this hotel (food is good with a reasonable price)

The hotel is clean and location is good for Indians. The size of double room is very small and no place to even move. The bathroom is with modern amenities but the water will spill out if you have a full shower.
Actually we booked for 3 days through booking.com but we stayed for 2 days only and the receptions is co-opertative accepted to cancel one day so we stayed in our friend room.

Room Tip: For singles OK. For family with kids better have another option.

This hotel at little india is really very clean, neat and tidy. Though rooms are very small in size, they have almost all the facilities you need as a traveler. Nice and powerful AC, comfortable bed cupboard, digital locker, small table and chair, dryer, etc
Positives:
1. Value of money
2. cleanliness

Negatives:
1. Rooms are too small (deluxe room)
2. People sitting outside hotel on footpath and having drinks in open.

Room Tip: Ask for room with window if you like sunshine!

I am satisfied about the Santa Grand hotel Little India .Preferable for people who love Tamilnadu or Indian food as there are many restaurants available for them . It is little costly and room size is little smaller but room is clean and neat and important thing is it is very near or walk able distance from Little India MRT .

This was our first trip to Singapore and we chose Little India just because we are pure veg. After much research, Santa Grand came on top of the list. Got 10% discount through their online booking facility. Room has everything that you may expect from a 3 star facility, such as, branded toiletries, tea/coffee maker, hair dryer, cabinets, excellent air conditioning etc etc... but the room is TINY!! Anyway, we got used to the size in our 3 day stay. Centrally located. Very polite staff.

This is a small hotel in the heart of Little India. Like most of the lower priced hotels in Singapore, the rooms are pretty small but fully functional with a decent bathroom. If all you need to do is sleep there, it's perfect. It's about 500m walk to either Little India or Farrer Park MRT, and just a building back from Serangoon Road. The included breakfast was roti and curry with tea or coffee at the local restaurant next door (which was really good and busy with lots of locals stopping in for their breakfast on their way to work). It's good value and a nice hotel for this budget range.
