Reviewed January 12, 2013

We booked this hotel thru Agoda and despite the mixed reviews, we were pleased with what we got. The room was small but nice, has comfy twin beds, cool AC, nice bathroom (complete with bathtub / hot water/ clean towels/ standard amenities etc.). It could accommodate us (2 adults + 1 kid) nicely.

The check-in was quick, and so was the check-out.

Our package excluded breakfast so we paid extra for it. SGD 15++ for adults, SGD 12++ for kids. Not a bad decision considering the selection (plus no nearly eatery places serve big breakfast before 11 a.m.).

The best part is its strategic location near the Little India MRT station.

We would recommend this hotel to anybody who travel as pairs or family with young kids.

Room Tip: Try higher floor for better view

Dear shirleytheresia,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and also taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor.

As we are a heritage hotel built on conserved pre war shophouses, there are limitations to the size of some of our rooms. While the size of our rooms varies, all our rooms are designed to be relevant to the needs of our guests.

Stay Village. And Discover.

Our second stop-over in Singapore, so we knew to buy our tourist passes at the MRT station at the airport after leaving checked luggage at the airport luggage counter. MRT straight to Bugis and a short walk to Albert Court.
Hotel staff were all very cooperative, upgraded us to a quiet room gratis.
Equally close to Little India for cheap eats and Fattys for good old Cantonese, just like Brisbane(!) as well as Bugis St Market just up the road.
When the Downtown Line with Rochor Station is open in 2017 Albert Court will be just a few steps away and Botanic Gardens 8 minutes, according to the SMRT signage. I can't wait!

Room Tip: Our room on the lowest floor was quiet except for A/C noise from main hotel areas, but it wasn't...

Albert Court Hotel is located just a few minutes away from Little India as well as other prominent areas in Singapore. We reached the hotel at 10.00 PM in the evening, we were greeted by smiling staff at the reception who were keen to help us. The staff, on learning that we were on our Honeymoon, promptly upgraded us to their 'Club' Rooms. The room by itself was large and clean and extremely well maintained. The bathroom was slightly smaller in size but had a nice bath-tub. The beds were soft and the TV was huge. All in all, a good room. We stayed there for 4 nights.

The breakfast area though not small, was packed every morning. People who walked in late had to routinely wait for a few minutes before they could be assigned to a table, and at times even share a table with strangers. While we did not mind doing that, the constant crowd in the breakfast cafe invariably made us speed up our breakfast as we did not want to hold on to our tables for long. So having a quiet, leisurely breakfast was out of question. The variety for the breakfast was adequate for both vegetarians as well as non vegetarians and the quality was good as well.

Now for the ambiance, the hotel has a nice colonial feel to it, with its street styled shops and restaurants. We really enjoyed it.

A good experience overall, and we would come back and stay here if we return.

A very nice place close to Little India and within walking distance of Orchard St. There are other comments about the rooms being small, which they are, but perfectly acceptable. I would use this hotel again if I ever came back to Singapore.

We stayed 3 nights during Christmas 2012 and got a steal for USD 130 a night. That was a great value for peak season stay in expensive city as Singapore, so we werent expecting much. The room we stayed in was spacious for Spore standard, the furniture looks a bit tired and old but still OK. My only complain is the water temperature in shower switches on and off abruptly, set it at warm and for 5 minutes it would switch to cold. The lobby was fragrant with cinnamon-ginger smell that reminds us of Christmas at home. The hotel was clean and orderly, service was good, check in-out was speedy. There is a seven eleven a stone throw away, and we especially like the Indian restaurant in the court which serves great Indian food. Walk to Bugis Junction for only 20 mins, to Little India MRT for 8 mins. Other reviews state you can walk to Orchard, but we were not that ambitious.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for its great value, if you need a decent room to crash at night and the convenience of finding eateries and last minute whim of shopping

December 29, 2012, it was quite an adventure finding our way from the airport to the hotel. MOst of us were first timers. But my sister who has been in Singapore several times before insisted that we take the train from the airport to the hotel. Quite clearly, there was an option of taking the hotel shuttle for only $9 per person, but she wanted to do it the more challenging way. And quite a challenge it was because none of knew of what to do, where to go. But after asking for so many directions and instructions from the locals, we finally ended up at a Bugis Mall and took a short cab ride from there.

Albert Village is a nice quaint place to stay, very cozy and only a 5 minutes walk to the LIttle India station (wish we knew that earlier). This station will take you to almost all points of interest in Singapore. The front desk team was very helpful and gracious. They gave us thebest tips on where to dine, shop, how to get there and more. They were also very helpful in assisting us with the web checkin for our return trips back to the Philippines. They booked cabs for us and gave us a good overview of what to expect, including pretty good estimates of how much things may cost us.

Our room reservations did not come with a free breakfast. To avail of this, we'd need to pay an additional $16/pax (i think). Although that's quite a expense for a breakfast, I'm sure that the buffet would have been a great experience as well. But there were so many other choices within 5 minutes by foot for a much less expense.

The rooms were also very well kept, comes good sized bathrooms, free bottled water, coffee and tea. And of course the unlimited hi speed wi fi available at every room was a delight.

If in Singapore, will I consider staying here again? Of course! =)

Room Tip: We stayed at the Main building but I was told that rooms in the "new wing" were even nicer...
