Good location near bus station and cheaper than around but is actually terrible. Never could be classified as as 'hotel'! Very small room with an incredibly small toilet and shower. Shower does not drain good, water stays on the floor. Water heater has wires exposed to the water so we were afraid to turn it on. Holes on the floor... More

This is more of a place for back packers and should not be classed as a hotel. On most websites they have lead you to believe that is it the 'Meriton' also has a sign out the front say that... it was clearly not.

Bathroom is so small you cant even stand inside straight and close the door. Bathroom floor was unable to drain the water. ACs remote is not available in the... More

When I saw the room and the toilet, I was almost shocked. The room was so small and the water stayed on the ground of the toilet. Compared to the price of the room, it was my worst room ever. Plus lots of cockroaches.. There was no sound proof at all and I couldn't sleep at all all night long... More

Ive stayed in budget hotels all over China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and a few in Indonesia, this is by far the worst Ive stayed in. I know hotels in Singapore are expensive and poor value for money it would seem if budget is a concern. However when I booked a "luxury" room at this hotel , I did expect reasonable... More

Although not the cleanest, it was a decent room for the price and in a good location in little india. There's no common room though so only stay there if you're not interested in socializing, though the room was better than any hostel room

This hotel is well placed for Little India, the Bus station and the MRT. The hotel provides room only. The hotel is damp and smells very musty. We had a double ensuite room. I've seen bigger and better bathrooms in a 2 berth caravan....if you weigh more than 10 stone, expect a struggle to get onto the loo! The room... More

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.
