“great little basic hotel conveniently located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Rooms have good size, not being a high rise is nice. A very good 3 star hotel in my view, when you can get rooms at good discounted prices (= well below 200/night) - that presents reasonable value. I don't believe their standard rooms are worth over S$ 200. Solo receptionist was busy with other guest so had to wait a long time, yet within earshot and view were others chatting in room right there at reception, and they cold not care less clearing the queue and let us wait, even though I made some noise - not a nice first impression. Yes, I would come back - but only if room price is under 170 - that compares reasonable to other room costing that much.

My husband & I stayed at the Albert Court Hotel for 1 night only as a stop over, but if I had to go back again & stay in Singapore longer, I would definitely stay at the Albert Hotel again. The standard rooms are small, but big enough for a 1 nights stay. If I were to stay longer I'd get the upgrade & go bigger, we had a look at them upon leaving & found them to be modern & spacious. What makes this Hotel so special ?... not only is it great looking...it's in a fabulous position. Just outside the front doors you have this gorgeous courtyard, full of outside eateries, bars & cafes with musicians playing in the background. Then on the outskirts you have Little India, China Town & a fabulous undercover hawker-style eatery in the famous Bugis Street area. Wow...so much to see & so much diversity. From this boutique style hotel, my husband & I covered so much ground on foot, that we saw so much amazing architecture, first class shopping & dining, plus amazing food courts down town, so much to choose from & so cheap. So I fully recommend staying in this cute hotel, it's clean, has high ceilings with fans, fab little in house restaurant & buffet breakfasts, not to mention the gastronomic extravaganza that awaits you outside your hotel doors, & of course the conveiniance of having all these idyllic places of interest around you within walking distance. The shopping was amazing around these areas, so diverse. Can't wait to come back.

Depending on what your needs are Albert Court could be either just what you are looking for, or not.

The Pros;

Well priced rooms
Charming location
Nice Indian restaurants right next door
Quiet
Small sized hotel

The Cons;

While still very centrally located, it may be too far off from the main centre for some;
Taxi's are not always readily available;
Limited breakfast;
cheaper rooms are getting a bit tired

Room Tip: Quite a big difference between the old rooms and the ones in the new wing; consider spending some ex...

Very nice boutique style hotel in colonial building. (Not a tower block setting). Great location near Little India SMT means the quays and China Town are only a few minutes away by tube. Breakfast buffet offers a good selection of food.

It"s a really great hotel! The environment is really great and so is the service and food. The staff are really helpful. The rooms are very clean and kind of small (but the average size of a hotel room in the center of the city, you could say). Then comes the location factor, this hotel is located in the heart of business points in SG! Every thing is so close and convenient! The breakfast was really good.So overall this is a really great hotel for Businessmen and even for travelers! Recommend this hotel to anybody.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side facing the hotel and not the road might be quieter.

This is my 3rd stay in this hotel and second time to give my review because I feel they deserve to receive commendation. First of all, I am happy with my stay here because of the friendly staff like Melvin Racraquin who always espouse his friendliness and flashing his smile, he is always ready to help. We also met Azalea who is also friendly and gave assistance even we said we don't need it. The rooms are clean and beautiful. Location is just near bugis and the food strip. Great stay, I will go back to this hotel again.
