“Le Peranakan Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

This is one of the economical hotel I've been! As for this review or as of the moment i'm still here! Why i like it here? One, this is not so far away from the town-city which is about 20-30minutes by bus. Two, this is the old traditional best foods in the country. Third, it is near the beach area of Singapore. Fourth 1 twin bed is only S$100 only and they have free wifi, free bottled (2) water, and the reception officer is very good in communication and not rude... Please prepare $50 for the deposits and it is refundable too.

The room we stayed in were the superior double with no windows but that was alright because we had a skylight in our toilet which I really loved. The hotel room was clean and a little small but comfortable. The location is really good as it is conveniently located nearby a bus stop which made getting around alot easier. I would recommend picking up a bus map and mrt map for ease of navigation around singapore and plotting your next stop and getting back to the hotel. No food provided but thats okay as there are many food shops nearby. If you're ready to walk, the neighborhood is great with interesting shophouses to look at and walk into.

Dear Joeymel,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I hope you enjoyed your stay at Le Peranakan Hotel. I believe the room that you stayed in without the windows but just the skylight was the Standard Double room. All our superior and deluxe rooms have windows in the room.

We at Le Peranakan Hotel look forward to your next stay with us.

Sincerely,

Staying at this decent little hotel is a good option if you just need a clean bed and bathroom in Singapore. Although the rooms are quite small they are comfortable, a closet with clothes hangers, wash cream dispenser in the bathroom, tv, water kettle with instant coffee/milk tea are provided. No food (breakfast or otherwise) though there are plenty of places for a decent meal within one block.

Room Tip: Choose one of the superior rooms

Dear Frank,

Thank you for staying with us at Le Peranakan Hotel and taking the time to write this review. Indeed your tip in booking the Superior room is a good one as our superior rooms are slightly larger and with windows. And our Deluxe rooms are much larger than Superior rooms.

We are looking into a breakfast option for the Hotel hopefully starting next year. We look forward to your next stay with us.

Sincerely,

Room
We stayed in the superior double with no windows. Hotel room was clean but really small with electrical kettle and hairdryer provided. The aircon was working well and we were given 2 complimentary bottled water.
Location
Good as it's near local restaurants and only 2 bus stops (approx. 5 mins ride) to the nearest shopping mall (Katong I12). This area are filled with shophouses which has alot to offer (e.g. cafes, pubs, foot massage, etc.). And though it's situated near the main road, you do not really hear any noise.
Price
$80 for a night is reasonable as other hotels in the same area usually cost more.

Perfect for overnight stays and 1-2 days stopover with minimum baggage!

Dear Chris,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review, we at Le Peranakan Hotel greatly appreciate it.

Indeed our hotel is ideal for staycations of a night or two. With many nearby eateries, couple of shopping malls and a recreational park (East Coast Park), it makes for an enjoyable staycation.

We hope you stay with us at Le Peranakan Hotel again and try out our Superior or Deluxe rooms which are much larger rooms.

Yours Sincerely,
Kevin Boon

Although the rooms are quite small they are comfortable, a closet with clothes hangers, washcream dispenser in the bathroom, tv, water kettle with instant coffee/milk tea are provided. No food (breakfast or other) but there is plenty of that around in the close vicinity of the hotel. The location is perfect, close to the airport but within easy reach of the city by the many buses passing by. Also, shopping around the East Coast area is very good, walking distance or just a few stops by bus. My room was bordering the terrace where I could relax or sit at the table with my pc using the free Wi-fi facility. I really enjoyed my stay here and the friendly front desk staff, especially Alex and Allan were very helpful. I will certainly recommend this hotel to solo travellers.

Dear Mariska,

Thank you so much for your kind review. The hotel team especially Alex & Allan are motivated to provide better customer service because of your kind words. They sincerely look forward to your next stay with us.

Yes indeed our Terrace Rooms are the hot favorite for our regular guests and you were lucky to have gotten the room as it usually gets booked in advance. One of the best features of the terrace are the waterfall feature that is simply beautiful in the evening when its lighted up.

Yours Sincerely,
Kevin Boon

As everything is Singapore the hotel is small just like its rooms.
Rooms are ok for solo travellers but can be small for couples.
The hotel is only 10 minutes drive from the airport. And located next to Italian restaurant
and on the opposite side is a micro brewery located which has delicious beers and good food.

The beds are ok and the rooms are equipped with airco, mini-bar.
My room didnt have a window and was a humid. Staff are ok, I asked to arrange a taxi but i seemed like they were not really interested to help.

Hotel is ok for overnight stay.

Booked this place as an alternative to spending 24 hours at Changi Airport on an unexpected stopover in Singapore. (The airport transit hotels were fully booked.) We booked based on proximity to the airport and the price. Hotels in Singapore are pricey, but this one is a bit overpriced for what it offers.

The rooms are extremely small. In fact, they are even smaller than they appear in the photos. The amenities are few. We had a hot pot, two bottles of water, two 3-in-1 packets of coffee and tea each, liquid soap dispenser in the shower, and a hairdryer. The shower/toilet is a marvel of space engineering, but is not suitable for big people. The staff were not user friendly--not at all as professional looking as the models in the photos. The daytime staffer couldn't be bothered to unplug his earbud or even rise from his chair to attend to business.

Nonetheless the room was clean enough. The a/c worked adequately. The bed was comfortable, and the linens were clean. There were plenty of places nearby to get a late night bite to eat and something in the morning.

It is good enough for one night and if you want to be near the airport. We probably wouldn't stay here on a planned visit to Singapore although I like the neighborhood.

Room Tip: My impression is that there is no way you are going to get anything you ask for. While we were check...

Dear Sara,

My sincere apologies that we were not able to meet up to your expected level of service. I will retrain the staff that served you and make sure that this lack of service is not repeated on the next guest.

Thank you for your kind comments on the room cleanliness, indeed we make sure rooms are cleaned properly and are checked on a daily basis.

I do hope you consider staying with us again, feel free to drop me an email Kevin@Leperanakanhotel.com if you wish to make a booking and I will make sure you will not regret the second visit.
