4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Great to always know that SantaGrand Aljunied frequently has room promotions which are really worth to spend for the neccesities u can find in the room..Love the location that is by the roadside..so many convenient stores around..7-11 is just less than five minutes away along with 3 petrol kiosks within sight from your room. Love the quiet ambience..the staff are friendly too.Lastly..free wifi available n great tv channels with a dvd player.

I m so glad with this hotel due to my guest Mr Deng Xayalath left his gold neckless in the room and was found by the Chamber maid Vikramjit Singh and the front desk staff Ms Felicia Hoeden called to inform the case. Appreciated to Mr Sam Lee, the hotel manager for his helpfull to send the neckless to guest immediately as to let the guest enjoy his tour without worries!

I have no clue that the entire Singapore would have a such terrible hotel. Super tiny room with dirty bathroom. The bathroom seems like a 1950's product to me. I have been traveling around the world, especially in Asia. I really expect something good from this "developed" aisan country. I am telling you all that a regular motel in China or S. Korea is much more better than this place. Also, the loaction, It's just couple of blocks away from prostitution. Really bad area in Singapore. Keep away from this place if you can!!

Room Tip: There is simply no good room in this hotel!

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your valuable feedback.

We are really sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations during your stay with us. We take our guests' feedback seriously and your feedback has attracted our management's attention. Santa Grand Hotel Aljunied provides safe, secured and value for money accommodation. It is situated in a precinct where guests can experience Singapore's varied nightlife amidst old local shop houses serving authentic local food and lifestyle. This reflects the ambience and local taste in this heritage area. As the location may not be preferred by all travelers, we do have other Santa Grand hotels in our chain, like Santa Grand Hotel Lai Chun Yuen at Chinatown or Santa Grand Hotel Bugis to meet the diverse need of customers.

We recognize that the hotel room including the bathroom is time for a refurbishment due to wear and tear, and your feedback makes it a pressing need to do so. Thank you for highlighting the matter to us.

Once again, we appreciate your feedback and sharing your experience on Tripadvisor. We hope to have a chance to host you again soon.

Best Regards,
Hotel Management Team

As per other reviews I wouldn't stay here if your a solo female traveller as It is in the red light district.when I've first walked into the room it smelt of urine. The housekeeping is poor, as well as the room maintenance. The receptionist in the morning is less than helpful. On a positive there is free wifi, and the bed is actually surprisingly comfortable, we had to ask for extra pillows however. We only stayed one night as we were only passing through. It was good to see how the locals lived I suppose, the room is cheap which is also a bonus. Tea and coffee facilities available in the room. I probably wouldn't stay here again.

Not a place for lone women traveler. Area not good. Only stayed there because it was the only reasonable priced Hotel left that had rooms available at short notice due to peak season. Bathroom is out of date and smelly. Room was dirty & dusty when I arrived.
Housekeeping just left dirty linen in the corridor, not a pleasant sight.
No restaurant not even breakfast is available.
Can not expect too much from a 2 * but clean a room is a must anywhere.
Staff were friendly.

Room Tip: corner suites are larger

This hotel is a 2-star so I didn't expect any luxury. Anyway, room was large enough with a big bed, a television with DVD player, aircon and internet wireless really working for free.
Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom quite rundown and shower not working, bu the reception managed local maintenance staff fixed it. Personnel was kind.
I recommend this hotel for short stays like stop-overs if you don't want to spend too much.
Geylang is the so-called "red light district" but I wasn't disturbed at all.

Room Tip: Have a look that everything is working before accepting the room.
