4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Nice quaint setting ,very clean and tidy,well connected to public transport and shopping areas.We came back only to sleep and believe me that we did excellently. Don't trust them with a wake-up call. We would have missed our flight if we had relied on them.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now and it felt like home. A comfortable Hotel which isn't pretentious but cosy and welcoming. I found the staff professional, efficient and friendly, even the cleaners asked if they could help! The breakfast had a wide variety of foods to suit all tastes. I arrived in Singapore after staying for 4 weeks in Morocco & Spain to find the Club room at Village Hotel Albert Court had the most comfortable bed I had slept in for the month! I want their pillows! The rooms are large and clean. The location is great,around the Little India district which I find more interesting than staying in the more touristy areas. The train station is only a 2-3 minute walk from the hotel.. I did find the carpet in the hallways a tad shabby (stained and old)but have been told renovations have been planned to update the hotel. The air conditioning was a little loud but all in all a good value hotel.

Room Tip: The Club rooms are large and comfortable and with these rooms you have the added bonus of free coc...

This is the second time I am staying here. Great location. The ambiance is great. The sit out joints in the courtyard are fantastic. Looks like a heritage hotel. Food is passable. Facilities are minimal. But the service - arrrrhhh! People talk down to you as if you have never been inside a hotel before.

Room Tip: They tell you that the rooms in the block opposite the reception are "upgrade". I actually...

One of the really good hotels that I've stayed in. In the center of the city close to transit station and easily accessible. Also very close to Little India. Suitable for both business and leisure travelers

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are a better choice

Better clarity to be provided by the reception when the clients credit card is used to make an "authorisation" The carpets along the corridor was stained and dirty. Smoking should be prohibited down the corridor as the stench persists much after the smoker has moved on.

Dear Francis G,

We thank you for sharing about your stay at Village Hotel Albert Court and we are glad that you had enjoyed your stay.

We apologise for the smoking smell in the corridor. We have increased our enforcement efforts and have also introduced no smoking signs in each room. We have also briefed our front office team about the importance of explaining the credit block to our guest and we are sure there will be more clarity for our guest in future.

Good location for tourists close by little India. Metro station of little India around 400 meters away. That takes you cheaply and quickly to the city centre main attractions. The rooms are nice but the bed is small for the larger people. The reception is nice, the hallway needs an upgrade.

Great customer service especially from Melvin and James from the front desk. Very helpful and great accommodations. Majority of the food and malls are within walking distance. Day and night tours are also offered and a must! Love the free upgrade to a premium room with the living room and huge queen size bed. Would definitely come back again.
