Stayed here on a quick visit to Singapore. The location was brilliant, walking distance to everything! The rooms are small but perfectly formed. Everything you need is here, and the little care packages of food and free drinks was great. I also loved the free use of the Handy cellphone. Breakfast was nice. Great spot in an expensive city.

There is a strong smell in the room. The furniture is falling apart and very worn. I wouldn't even sit on it. There are stains on the sheets. I stay in hotels almost every week and this is the worst I've gotten in years. They really have to get some new furniture, sheets, and figure out the smell. That's as... More

Very well maintained and cosy. Located in Arab street closed to the centre. Room that we booked was very small but it was booked in last minute so most probably they had better rooms. Prices are affordable too. Breakfast is typically Chinese style.it was a nice stay

So, it's nearly 2am and to get to my hotel room I had to literally walk through a waft of sickly cigarette smoke from patrons of the attached club; to then discover my room backs directly on to the roof terrace, and the pumping drum beat of the club is far from ending anytime soon!

Booked a room at The Sultan for one night stay. Chose Attic Room. The room is spacious and the bed, pillows etc. were good and very comfortable. The breakfast was simple and the staff served us during breakfast was very friendly and helpful. Would love to come back again and book the other rooms.

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighborhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly colored fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Center and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.

The distinctive building which houses The Sultan’s main lobby is so prized for its historical and cultural relevance, and architectural beauty, that it has appeared on a 1996 Singapore postage stamp.
