We had such an ace time spending a night here in the finest most creative boutique hotel in Singapore! We are hugely impressed by their concept, cleanliness and professionalism. The highlight of our stay has got to be the very unique lounge called the whisky library. The food & cocktails were out of this world. The service rendered especially by SYLVIA & ROSANNA was over and above the rest! They were uber attentive, helpful and extremely polite. They are definitely an asset to the company. We feel privileged for this GOLD experience and are definitely coming back for more!

We stayed at the Vagabond for 2 nights for a staycation for our anniversary and they kindly upgraded us to a deluxe room and sent up some cake. The room and the property as a whole is very interesting with artwork throughout the building. They provide a complimentary art tour of the pieces in the lobby and bar area. Location wise, it's great right between little India and Arab street and there's great food options all around

We took a night away from the kids. Decided to spend it here on a recommendation from a friend. The location is quite good, near Jalan Besar. Walking distance to a lot of the old eating institutions here as well as the newer cafes. I didn't get to enjoy the whisky library ... it was definitely a temptation.

Stayed 1 Night at the hotel, which is located in a row of pre-WW2 shophouses at the southern end of Syed Alwi Road. The hotel is packed with eclectic art works, sculptures and prints. At checkin, I was upgraded to the Courtyard Executive Room. Unfortunately all suites were sold out for the night. The room had a 70's feel with dark woods, spacious and included a large work desk. My room had many windows and a large sliding door, bathing the room in natural light. The room had direct access to a small private courtyard shared with 4 other rooms. The bed was comfy, good Wifi, cold AC, ample hot water. Standing shower only, no bathtub (apparently only found in the Vagabond Suite). The Executive Club Lounge served complimentary hors d’oeuvres and standard pour drinks during the 3 hour long happy hour. The lounge converts to the Whiskey Bar & Restaurant at night. During our stay, the Yellow Pot pop-up restaurant from the Six Senses @ Duxton was whipping up Chinese food - expensive (by Syed Alwi Road prices) but large portions. The Whiskey Library has a very long list of rare and expensive labels from all over the world. Pro Tip: Order the Whiskey Flight to taste the best bottles at an affordable price. The highlight of the stay must be the excellent staff who served us throughout the stay. They were genuinely warm and very efficient. I asked the FD to lend me an umbrella as was it was pouring outside. She could have simply brushed me off by saying all brollys had been loaned out. But instead, she lent me her personal umbrella! Breakfast options comprised western and local fare, limited to 1 item per person, which I felt was unnecessarily stingy. That said, the servings were generous. Street side coupon parking only. Will be back for sure.

I'm not a fan of boutique hotels, but gave The Vagabond Club a try. It was a surprisingly delightful stay, starting right from the check in experience. Service by staff was professional and sincere. Room was clean and comfortable. Evening cocktail was delightful and enjoyable. Will want to return for another stay.
