This is an ideal hotel for the tourists who will not spend time at the hotel. The rooms are small in size, most offer no window and hence are ideal for people who will spend most part of the day outside which is what we did. The rooms are and linen are clean, bed is comfortable but the A/C temperature...

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.

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.
