Did a staycation over National day with my friends. 2nd time we are staying here after 3 years. Decided to staycay again because they had expanded into a new wing with private pod suites. We booked an entire room of pod suites for the 8 of us. It's really private and I didn't have to worry about other people walking... More

Stayed here for the first time, although I have been to Singapore several times on business. I really like the concept, feels really like a boutique hotel, but in a scaled down capsule hostel format. Staff are friendly and will give you a tour of the property before walking you to your room. I’m amazed at all the freebies included... More

Stayed at The POD as a long term guest and decided to upgrade to the POD suites when they introduced it as part of their expansion plans. Whilst I had felt the shared PODs were good, the suites are perfect for business travellers. Provides sufficient privacy when you are working on your laptop because you get your own personal workspace.... More

I wasn't impressed, there's nothing 'boutique' about this place. It's tiny, and I don't mean the pods, but the breakfast area, the checking area and there was a queue for the showers in the morning as there were only 2 showers (3 normally but 1 was out of order) for 20 pods, which means queuing up.. The breakfast is bare... More

Stayed 3 nights after splashing out on expensive accommodation one night, after staying at the marina bays sands it was definitely different. But it was clean and tidy, air conditioned and a cool location. Lockable boxes under the beds. Very close to Arab st and sultan mosque which was bustling and vibrant as the sun went down, all the eateries... More

Had a 3 days 2 night stay and it was comfortable for the price paid. Not much breakfast choice (mandatory to opt for breakfast in agoda). Bathroom was pretty clean but shampoo wasn't replenished quick enough. Staff service was remarkable. They were friendly and helpful.

Me and my sister stayed here for 2 nights in June. We found the hotel to be clean and well maintained throughout the stay and the staff were always very helpful. The breakfast was good and very filling and there is a coffee machine available 24 hours a day which really helped cope with the jet lag! We stayed in... More

I booked this accommodation based on reviews and now wonder how they even have a rating above 1. They never answered my emails and when I called they were rude and clueless. Nothing really changed when I got there. The staff clearly don't give a falafel. No bottled water - as was listed and no locker to keep my valuables... More

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.
