“Truly Nostalgic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

My wife surprised me with this short staycation at Nostalgia Hotel.
It was a very good choice.
1. The booking was hassle free
2. The room and bathroom were clean and tidy.
3. The staff welcomed us warmly upon us entering the beautifully set up lobby.
4. The price per night was reasonable given the quality of service, location of hotel and its amenities.
5. We skipped the breakfast simply because there are so many yummy food at the Tiong Bahru food centre just a stone throw away.
6. If you like Jasmine scent, then you would also find the hotel smell heavenly.
7. Room service was reasonably quick.

Reasons that I didn't give it an excellent
1. The radio on the vanity table is a lil dusty.
2. The tv channels are jumbled up And not according to the tv menu
3. I stepped onto a tiny sticky patch on the edge of the bedsheet on the floor.

I do recommend you to visit this hotel.

Stay there many times as business travelers. Maximum points for their staff friendliness. The American breakfast is great as well. Easy to get taxi, a food court and convenient stores are nearby, although the halal stall in the food court is closed at night. A mall and mrt is at 15 mins walk away, quite far if u have luggage with you.

As business traveler, the hotel is sufficient for me. Although room facing back alley can be noisy at night when the garbage collector comes by and noise from the road affecting the ones facing the road. The rooms are not that big but very very clean. And free apples everyday.. yey.

In summary, good place for non-picky people who just need a place to rest and dont mind the narrow rooms. The staffs friendliness is the main point here.

Room Tip: Not facing the road.

My wife & I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. it is A well run boutique no frills hotel located in the old quarter of Singapore close to the Tiong Bahru market & MRT. staff are very friendly & accommodating & when I objected to the room size We were given a larger upgraded room at no additional charge. Which while larger than the first standard room was still small. Other than this we would highly recommend this hotel.

This was such a nicely setup boutique hotel. Lovely cafe, rooftop pool, lobby etc. but the room was beyond tiny for the price. For 2 adults it was just so tiny there was nowhere to put luggage so we had to stand on it or sit on the bed. But very nice clean room. The bathrooms are lovely too.

The staff were extremely helpful - couldn't fault them.

The area, Tiong Bahru is a nice sort of area, just a fair walk to get anywhere, even the nearest metro which hindered us a bit in ducking out to do things. We did eat several times at the food market right near the hotel and it was very good! We love Asian food so much and this didn't disappoint - very cheap too, especially when compared with other food we had around Clarke Quay that was over priced and nowhere near as good.

I have been traveling for the last 6 months around the world, and it is Hotel Nostalgia that stands out most from my travels; so much so that it was on the top of my list to rate 4 months after staying. Now I'm not going to tell you that the rooms are huge; they aren't, and I'm not going to tell you it was in the heart of it all; it's not, but what I will tell you is, if I where to return to Singapore, Hotel Nostalgia would be at the top of my list of places to stay. It is a small family run Hotel; while there I often chatted with the owner at breakfast, was always greeted by the manager James. The staff to seemed to be treated like family there too, and as I observed, it was a truly effective management technique because they enjoyed going the extra mile and seemed to feel so comfortable there that they would often hang out to have a drink and share their knowledge of the city with the guests. This was truly a unique hotel, and again, highly recommended! -And a special thanks to all of the staff at Hotel Nostalgia!

Room Tip: I enjoyed the balcony room. Their is a double door, so it's quiet, but a very nice view.

We chose Hotel Nostalgia based on tripadvisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. The hotel s very clean, rooms look very new, even if they are very small. The really enjoyed the dip in the roof top pool. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We did not take breakfast at the hotel as we preferred to get a coffee in the Tiong Bahru neighbourhood (literally just behind the hotel), a great up-and-coming neighbourhood with lots of trendy shops, galleries and coffee places.
