Village Hotel Albert Court by Far East Hospitality
Ranked #77 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Good location in the city, with nice and cozy environments. It’s a heritage building with very well maintained and great service. The hotel just located 5mins walk from MRT Little India station, is easy access to anyway of the city. Across the road is the Little India area, which you can experience and enjoy the building, foods and shopping there. Mustafa Centre, which is a 24hr shopping center in Little India is must to visit in the midnight, its’ a totally different experience of Singapore.
The hotel room is clean and comfort, internet access was smooth and speed enough. Although hotel dint have a swimming pool, but they do have Jacuzzi. At the courtyard of hotel also have few restaurant that serve nice local and international food, beside that you can easily get a local Chinese and Indian coffee shop just across the road, and sure you will enjoy the local Singapore food there with reasonable price.
It’s been a great experience here and for sure will stay here again on my next trip.

Dear SquallChin,

Thank you for taking your valuable time to write this review to compliment Albert Court Village Hotel and our staff. We are glad you have enjoyed your recent stay with us.

At Village, we hope our guests will discover the hidden gems within our precinct and get charm by the Village Experience. Within the Albert Court precinct, Little India is definitely one of the highlights. You correctly pointed out that Msutafa Centre provides a different shopping experience at night. We certainly recommend al our guests to visit the 24-hour mall.

Another hidden gem is the food around our hotel. It may not be as hidden as it used to be after many of our guests have tasted the varied options in our precinct. From fine dining to local food, from Indian to Chinese and French and Australian. Not discounting the numerous options within the hotel al fresco courtyard.

Thank you for choosing to stay with Albert Court Village Hotel. We look forward to your next stay with us.

Stay Village. And discover.

Yours sincerely,
Yan Leng

Dear Shubhro_Das,

Thank you for taking your valuable time to write this review to compliment Albert Court Village Hotel and our staff. We are glad to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us.

We are fortunate to be located within the Arts and Heritage district, just as our guests. We are surrounded by very interesting and charming historical and cultural architecture that are easily accessible to our guests. Other than these architecture, major museums such as Singapore Art Museum (SAM) are just 10 minutes walk from our hotel. These highlights are part of the fun of staying with us.

Thank you for your great support to Albert Court Village Hotel. We look forward to have you back with us on your next visit to Singapore.

Stay Village. And discover.

Yours sincerely,

Well it's a nice location just 5 mins from Little India and a 20 minute walk to the start of Orchard Road. I'd asked for a quiet room but if you get any room looking out over the main road (Rochor Canal Road I think), it's going to be noisy. Lots of traffic and construction. The hotel helpfully moved me to a room on the opposite side of the hotel - looking in and onto the court yard - which is what you want. Otherwise, wifi worked well and the room was fine. The breakfast options come with a choice of location - the Kookaburra Cafe - which was so bad it was almost a joke. The next morning I tried the main cafe in the hotel, and it was actually quite good. Would I go back - no I don't think so.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on the quiet side of the room - court yard side.

Dear YokohamaGeezer,

Thank you for taking your time to write this review to provide feedback to us. We are sorry to hear that you may not have entirely enjoyed your stay with us. We would like to assure you that this is not our usual standards and we can certainly do better than this.

With regards to the rooms facing the construction, we have completed our improvements on the sound proofing of our rooms. We have also tested the the noise level in the room and they are lower than the guidelines by the professionals for a bedroom. However, we do recognise that different guests have difference tolerence on the noise levels and will assist accordingly.

As for the breakfast, we have guests that prefer Kookaburra, and not the Albert Cafe. As such, we leave it to our guests to choose their breakfast venue, which is the main intention. We have received good feedback on this arrangement.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We will ensure your next stay with us will be a better one.

Stay Village. And discover.

Yours sincerely,
Yan Leng

We stayed at the Albert Court Village for a few days stopover on our way back to Aus. We arrived at the hotel before checkin time hoping to drop our cases and head out again. The receptionist advised our room was not yet ready and offered a subsitute, which we declined. Upon our return, the booking documentation had been prepared, awaiting a signature prior to being shown to our room where our luggage awaited.
Our room was noticeably larger than the more expensive hotel at which we stayed on our outwood journey and quite comfortable. The staff, from porters to reception were efficient, polite and certainly aimed to please. Thank you.
The location between Little India and Bugis means a short stroll to a huge range of inexpensive eating venues.
The staff and amenities meant an experience that exceeded expectation. We'll not hesitate to book at the Albert Court Village on our next trip to Singapore.

I was upgraded to club room in the wing opposite the lobby, the room was a bit small but nice bed, sheets. I could hear water dripping in the ceiling at night, it got louder the 2nd night and started dripping into my room at 1am, hence not a lot of sleep. I put a towel on the ground to soak up the water and tried to sleep, finally at 6am i turned on the tv to counteract the dripping noise...
Breakfast was nice and friendly staff at the Kokaburra restaurant.
As i was upgraded to club, on check in the receptionist told me i would have free cocktails from 6.30 - 8.00pm but when i asked for them i was told that " you were upgraded to club room without the benefits of club, great!!
I have stayed at Landmark Village before, much better there.

Beautiful architecture and interior.
Stayed at the main wing.
The room was large enough. They have flat screen TVs now.

The only downside was there were construction taking place next to the hotel.
Tho the construction work only took place during the day- it was a bit noisy.
Maybe you won't hear it if you stayed at the club wing.

Better to call the hotel earlier to check on the construction work status.

Good location. Close to Little India MRT.
Lots of places to eat near the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms in the club wing are quieter.
