Based on Ideal Area, Near Ferrer Park MRT Station and Mustafa Center. Hotel condition : Budget friendly, good area, good WiFi Access, near food centre, the hotel does not provide any other things other than a place to sleep and rest and shower. Rooms are small and Air conditioner too cold, overall is adequate.

Staff is friendly and the air conditioning, cleanliness of the rooms etc. is spot on. Mustafa mall is also at a walking distance and metro station is also nearby and can be... More

Hotel was ideally located. Train station can be accessed through the mall in front of the hotel...the hotel sits right at the edge of Little India and the better parts of Singapore, so you get the best of both worlds... cheap restos around, easy to find forex, just behind Mustafa so you can shop til you drop (or run out...

I am pleased with this hotel. The area is exactly in the heart of Little Indian, in front of the hotel there is MRT and mall, at the back there is Mustafa Centre. Next to the hotel is a kind of food court. The room itself was newly renoved, it's nice, although I have small room, but almost the same... More

Nice location at the Kitchener road in Singapore and 2 minutes walking distance from the Mustafa centre and the Indian eateries. Budget friendly where base rate per room is sgd 85 per night ! Nice and good rooms at that price ! no breakfast !! Good for transit and low budget travellers

I visited Singapore recently and stayed at Grand C Hotel for 2 days with my wife. It was a pleasant stay. It is a good choice for travelers who wants MRT station at a walk-able distance (hardly 200 meters), Veg. restaurants near by, and are looking for a shopping area near by. Rooms are decent, clean, relatively small though. Bathroom... More

Very friendly cleaning staff. Excellent location beside shopping centre and metro. No window, aircon cannot be adjusted or turned off. Lots of bugs in room. The bed was broken with springs coming our of the mattress. Remote for TV had to be rented along with hairdryer. No luggage storage. Shower would turn on randomly, no fridge in room.

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
