I got a pretty good deal as part of the hotel's opening special. Decided to use it for a staycation with friends who aren't familiar with the Katong area, and they loved it. Highly recommended for tourists who want to experience something less touristy and more authentic. Many excellent eateries within walking distance.
The room was generally good, with interesting Peranakan elements yet staying contemporary. I liked the bathroom, especially the shower. The pool and gym were a little smaller than what I would have liked.
Service was excellent. Sam, who was on duty at the front desk on the night of 21 December, went out of his way to help me with something that he totally didn't have to, and he did it with such sincerity. The manager on duty at Katong Kitchen on the morning of 22 December, whose name I didn't get, was also very accommodating with our requests. Even the chef at the egg station (James?) was so friendly that I almost felt like he was my private chef!
For a hotel that just opened, Village Hotel Katong has gotten much of its operations in place, which is not easy even for the well known luxury chains.
