“Short Stay in Singapore”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We had a 3 night stay here while we discovered Singapore. We had room only which is all we needed. Room was basic but no complaints as it was clean, hotel staff very friendly and helpful and knew how to make a great Singapore Sling!! It was about 30 mins walk to the Marina and just over the road from Little India. We were hardly at the hotel so cant comment on the food or ammenities.

Booked this hotel based on the Tripadvisor rating and comments. Just checked in, overall impression is old and outdated, I'm not saying it's not clean but it's just the overall impression. Have paid upfront so not a lot of choice I'm afraid. Staff at the front desk very friendly though.

We stayed two nights at this hotel. The room itself was nice and the staff were helpful and polite. The location is a little out of the way but the small square between the two hotel areas with its bars and restaurants was a nice area for a drink in the evening. The only let down was breakfast which was very limited and not that appetising.

Has been staying here all this while since 2010, overall a good place to stay. The front desk is friendly and gave me a worm welcome back, just feels like return to home. Location is quite strategic and walking distance to MRT and bugis.

We had stayed at the Albert Court in February 2013 and did not have a good experience. We let them know and they offered us a free nights accommodation next time we were in Singapore. My wife's birthday was coming up so we decided to take them up on the offer. We arrived and were greeted at the cab door, and they had no idea what time we would arrive. From that point on the experience was totally different to the previous. The front desk staff were efficient and very helpful. Jamal took us to our room and was very helpful, welcoming and made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. The decision to give them another chance was worth it, the place has improved considerably and it is worth a look if you want to spend some time in that part of town. It's sits on the edge of Little India opposite Sarangoon Road which is also worth a wander if your in the mood. Give them a chance and I think you will be delighted.

A single person, I went to there for 10 days, for the Grand Prix, food was good, staff friendly. Nice small gym in hotel, with a bar and restaurant. The food was good with offers on during the week for residents. Seemed more a business hotel than a family one. I have to mention some staff who made my stay perfect, Theresa, Melvin and Azleena, wonderfully friendly, you are a 5 minute walk from orchard road the main shopping district and just round the corner from little India.... Perfect place to stay

Recently stayed at the Albert Court Hotel as a stopover in Singapore. Good deal on Booking.com after reading the reviews which were pretty spot on. 

Approx 25 mins taxi ride from the airport & approx $23 SGD. Awesome location within walking distance to Bugis markets, numerous shopping plazas & Little India & SMRT.  

From the moment we arrived the staff were genuinely welcoming & friendly. Not to mention the hotel areas were spotlessly clean. 

Special thanks to;

Melvin - check in, thanks for suggesting the upgrade to club room & sorting out the wifi problems asap (change of rooms).

Jo - porter, not only did you take us to our room but remembered us throughout our stay & assisted with our luggage into the return taxi without even asking.

Theresa - bar, for making the best cocktails & especially your own special cocktail which was awesome (Theresa Special) & thank you for the friendly & interesting conversation we had we felt most welcome & like an old acquaintance.

Michelle - duty manager, thanks for introducing yourself & caring & asking about our well being & stay & not to hesitate in asking for anything, not to mention the personal delivery of a chamomile tea for my sick partner or if required a dr.

Josephine - club rooms attendant, thanks for your hospitality you really made a difference to our stay in the club rooms. Your sincerity & interest is above rapport.  We thoroughly enjoyed your kindness & sense of humor.

Delveena - reception, thank you for sorting out & explaining our accommodation bill. Your patience was very much appreciated & thank you for your assistance in extending our stay another night (recommending cheapest booking option & remaining in same room).

Would definitely stay at this hotel again when in Singapore based on the friendliness of the staff alone. Location is excellent as well as value for money. 

Only negatives were the rooms look a little worn & could do with a fresh coat of paint.  The built in plug in our bathtub leaked so was unable to use. Only discovered this on the second night & informed staff of problem on check out. 

The club room evening drinks are only for an hour each night & the club snacks are in a separate building so can't be enjoyed together. 

Breakfast on the club side part of hotel was continental but a better option to the Albert Cafe in the joining building which although was hot buffet with a variety, was not to standard (hot dishes cold) & restaurant staff disinterested. 

Apart from that I must say the staff were absolutely awesome & have definitely influenced my next stay in Singapore.
