“POSH!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Stayed 2 nights here and left feeling relaxed and pampered.
Service - Every staff member we met was friendly, very helpful and accommodating.
Food - We did the breakfast buffet one day and it was stellar. No way could you even sample everything they offered. We did not eat the dinner buffet, but it looked as impressive as breakfast. $18 SGD for breakfast, and I think $45 SGD for dinner, so yeah, pricey!
Pool - Small but after walking our tootsies off it was cool and refreshing. Late in the day, it was quiet with only a few people around. Round shape does not lend itself well to laps.
Room - Very large, lots of seating and desk/tabletops, inroom wi-fi, one of the most comfortable hotel beds ever, big bathroom with every conceivable amenity, fabulous shower.

Room Tip: Higher rooms offer better views.

Lovely new clean hotel, pool was fab. Not many restaurant around so ate in the hotel, Elmar was one of the friendliest waiters who was happy to sheared his local knowledge. Ten minutes from city centre but taxi's are cheap.

We stayed here for one day on our way to Macau. In fact I am writing this review on the day of my review.
Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. I needed to print some tickets. The front desk lady printed it for free. There is a free shuttle to and from the airport. The hotel Also runs free shuttle to a nearby beach and a free sightseeing tour. There is a mall below the hotel with a very nice convenience store. All major attractions except the zoo and safari are close by.

Rooms are not very large but are well appointed and comfortable. We booked a family room for 2 kids and 2 adults. W were pleasantly surprised to see four slippers and tooth brush in the room. Also got early check in. Overall, a great value. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting Singapore with a family.

Thank you for sharing your experience you had at Village Hotel Katong.

It was pleasing to read you enjoyed our excellent service, spacious rooms and convenient shuttle services to both airport and the local Big Splash centre. The convenience of a brand new well equiped NTUC supermarket under the hotel is very much a great additional service we also offer our guests.

We look forward to welcome you back again soon.

The bad:

1. Trendy toilet/shower room with translucent walls which unfortunately isn't as practical as the old-fashioned kind; not very sound-proof, sliding door was hard to lock, and putting the light on for a midnight visit illuminates the whole room!
2. Trendy futuristic lights outside the door indicating do-not-disturb/clean-my-room are again not as practical as the older cardboard signs. Possibly we accidentally turned the clean-my-room sign on (the switch is not labeled in the room, and the sign is outside only) but for the first two nights we were woken up early in the morning by the cleaner trying to gain entrance to the room.
3. No physical bolt/chain. See above- I've have preferred a chain so that we could be sure the cleaner wouldn't march into the room when we were sleeping.

The good:

1. Great location between Marine Parade shopping centre and hawker centres and the Katong area.
2. Huge room with well equipped toilet/shower room. Had a balcony.
3. Good facilities; pool, gym available. Shops and cafes/restaurants in the same building.
4. wifi worked nicely, although it was password protected so well we needed to often reenter the credentials.
5. Good price.
6. Bus shuttle service to airport and back very useful.
7. We had a late evening flight. Not only did the hotel keep our bags and give us use of the shuttle bus, but they suggested we use the gym's shower facilities before going to the airport- very useful given Singapore's tropical sticky climate.

We only used the breakfast facilities once, as we wanted to eat in the Katong coffee shops. The American breakfast delivered to the room was standard fare- nothing special but exactly as expected.

Despite the bad items listed above we would stay here again.

This is a relatively new hotel. It is right across from a shopping mall. There are lots of food in the vicinity of the hotel. Staff are very courteous and efficient. There is a supermarket beneath the hotel so it is easy to stock up on snacks and drinks.
The downside is that there is no subway station near the hotel. So it is rather inconvenient getting around. A taxi has to be booked and it incurred additional booking fees.

The hotel has recently introduced a free shuttle service in the morning one way to MRT Paya Lebar, which then enables our guests to connect to all parts of Singapore.
