“A beautiful experience in the middle of the colourful Little India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I've been there 5 night and I've really appreciated it.
The staff is very kind and friendly and they made me fell at home thousand miles away.
The decoration of the structure is fantastic, ethnic and very care about; it's all very new and functioning.
The room are few so it's not present the noise which typically distinguish a big hotel; it seems to be far away from the city even if the hotel is surrounded by pubs.
The rooms are spacious and have all the features you may need for a confortable sojourn.
There is also a swimming pool at the second floor with a little roof top garden to catch the sun.
The breakfast is western style with fresh products and served in the beautiful lobby of the hotel.
Thank you very much for everything, I will come back for sure there on my next trip to Singapore.

Room Tip: I think the only problem is the noise of fan inside the rooms; even if you switch off the AC it kee...

Don't expect the hotel is what you saw based on the website photo. Lobby is totally different. Room is... probably not what you expect.

We book a loft room and expect a room as nice as what we saw, but it turns out that that all of their loft room are different in design and size. At first they gave us a small loft room (It's so small that the upper floor can only fit a bed, and the lower floor I can hardly get into the bathroom).

Anyways we are lucky enough to change to a bigger loft room the second day, and I would say that room look more like what you saw from the web. It's roomy and nice. But I can't justify spending money on the loft room if I were not offered this "Presidential suite"

Room Tip: Pros: It's newly renovated Staff are very nice and helpful Lots of good indian food around...

We were at first surprised as this boutique hotel was nothing like we imagined from the pics on the internet. However, we grew to love the quaintness of The Daulat. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms small but clean and the bed, linen and towels exceptional. Breakfast was simple but lovely, coffee very good. We were encouraged to help ourselves to the soft drinks and water from the fridge as much as we wanted - very handy as we packed a few bottles of water in our bags each morning as we set out in the Singapore heat. Location is great, close to the MRT, fantastic restaurants and the excitement of Little India. Downsides would be the noise from surrounding bars (mainly on the weekend) and probably a bit overpriced. Would recommend the Daulat to everyone who wants to experience a holiday with a difference.

I have stayed at this hotel twice for staycations in Singapore.

The hotel is located in the heart of Little India and the amount of choices for food and entertainment in the area is amazing.

I think this hotel is perfect for those who want to enjoy the sights and sounds of little india but with alot more comfort and luxury as compared to the many stripped-down no-frills backpackers inns around the area.

The hotel i feel is also the perfect destination for no-frills business travelers who wish to have easy access to more local amenities around the area.

During my stay, the service staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the quality of the finishings in the room was superb, the bed being the most awesome part of my staycation experience.

I definitely like the hotel and would recommend it to travelers coming to Singapore.

Room Tip: Try the loft rooms. They are amazing.

Recently i had the opportunity to travel to Singapore and as in the past made a booking on line, the hotel is a little tricky to find but it seems well located in little India. Its a small hotel only 16 rooms and although our room was quite small we had all we needed. The staff were really helpful and having a drink fridge at your disposal day and night that it so very easy to stay refreshed.
This is a boutique hotel, in a good location with a hearty breakfast. Would recommend Daulat for short stays and for those who are looking for privacy. We were well satisfied with our experience.

We booked this hotel based on its internet site and were quite disappointed for what we paid. On the plus side, the staff are all very smiley and helpful and it is nicely located in Little Italy. However, the rooms are not like on the website, the swimming pool was closed and the ac was really cold, noisy and we had no control over it. In fact, we asked the first night and it was supposed to be fixed the next day, but it wasn't. In the end we had to sleep with the card out of the slot to cut the electric and the ac/ventilation. Apparently, it's just opened but for almost 220 S$ a night it's not good value.

The district eventually flourished and evolved to become, what is now known as Little India. Under the British colonial rule the architecture of the buildings then were symbolic of the British influence. The buildings were characteristically known as shophouses. Retailers ran their business from the first floor and their living quarters was the floors above the shop.
