“Convinient Location.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I have stayed many times at Penta Hotel in Singapore, on 33 Birch Road. Its a very convenient location, walking distance to the Farrer Park MRT, Angullia Mosque, Mustaphas Mall and many Indian restaurants around, etc. The staff could be more friendly. Nancy who is a very senior Manageress is very helpful........to tell us how to get about etc. Rooms are small, but value for money, as in Singapore everything is expensive. Linen are been changed everyday, and the toilets are cleaned daily. I have always had a Pleasant Stay here.

Room Tip: Would recommend to avoid the Ground Floor as its very noisy on Sunday Evening.

Hi I stayed here for half a day. I had waiting time of 12 hrs during my visit to New Zealand. I got my transit visa and went out to roam around Singapore.

I requested Taxi guy to take me to Little India and drop me at decent hotel. He dropped me here.

Hotel is good, very nice for medium budget. It is located closure to shopping place like Mustafa (where you get everything).

Staff could be more friendly, but I do understand that he had some problems that day.

This hotel is okay when you see the budget at good location.

Walking distance from Ferrer Road MRT, crowded Little India and 24 hour Mustafa Shopping Centre. It's a pure no frills hotel, however rooms are clean, washroom is appropriate.
There is one receptionist to handle all customer queries/ grievances and let's just say she is mediocre in displacing her duties..
Excellent location for Indian Pure Vegetarians as there are lots Indian restaurants/cafes nearby also selling India delicacies.
Appropriate for budget & solo travelers but a bad choice for a romantic/family vacation.

Penta Hotel is located in Birch Road, Singapore and is a good hotel very close to Little India This is a good hotel for Budget travellers and it is also very close to MRT station as well., There are few indian restaurants close to this Hotel and you can get good Indian food. Overall an OK place to stay in Singapore when travelling on Budget.

I stayed at this place with my wife for a couple of days. I have visited Singapore more than 30 times and let me tell you that this hotel is mostly frequented by Couriers who take stuff from here to back home for selling it in the grey market. Its a hotel with no service at all. There is a single receptionist to handle everybody. The place is right in the middle of down town little India. So there is no charm for people staying here of being in a foreign land.Its worst than being in karol bagh or a dirty slum in South Indian on Week ends. So take my advise and don't stay here if you are on family, romantic vacation. Only for people who want Indian food when being out of India. May be you understand my point.,

We stayed in a Family room. It has one double bed and one single bed. The hotel and rooms are clean. This is a great value if all you need is a clean place to sleep at night. The rooms are small but that is the case with Singapore hotels in general.

I tried booking hotels online. For two adults and 2 children, very few hotels would come close to the price of Penta. Some wanted me to book two rooms because one room would exceed the capacity.

This hotel is not available for booking on popular booking sites like Expedia or booking.com. I guess that helpls keep them the cost down because they don't have to pay brokerage to these sites.

Another plus is its closenes to the Farrer Park MRT - which is a 2-3 mins walk. The restaurants in Little India, the taxi stand in front of the Serangoon Plaza, Mustafa are a few minutes walking distance.
