“A Very Nice and a Different Hotel”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

If you are business traveller and looking fro smething different than the marble floors, deocr full of glass this is the place to stay in Singapore. The staff is very couteous...( not too many places in Singapore where you will find genuine courtesy these days...and mind you I have lived there for 14 years). The internet and Wifi is good, rooms and bed are clean and comfortable, shower and water is good,breakfast is nice and lots of other non business folks living there which gives a different feel. The rates are not very cheap ( but what is cheap in Singapore these days !) but are absolute value for money.... Oh and the location... Just outside Little India, close to CBD and Bras Basah and Orchard ( 5 mins away by cab) the location offers easy access for everything you would want. Many restaurants at street level with outdoor seating where you can also take a puff is a luxury these days. Just try and get a quieter room though or join the fun at street level.

Room Tip: Just as the staff at the reception for a quieter room and 7 out of 10 times they will oblige.

This hotel is ideally situated for exploring areas such as Little India and China town. It offered tremendous service. Staff were friendly and polite were nothing was too much trouble.
Our room was clean and tidy and offered complimentary Wi Fi, iron, kettle, hair dryer etc.
Buffet breakfast offered great choice and eggs were freshly cooked to order.
Situated in Albert Court which gives you a great choice of restaurants. Generally cannot complain about anything.

Dear jayneandcari,

Our location is well liked by many of our guests and reason why many frequent guests stay with us. Village Hotels is about the buzz and interesting things to see and do in our precinct. Our guests are spoilt for choice in terms of attractions, food and shopping. Other than this, our location is convenient for transport in getting to anywhere in Singapore as you have correctly pointed out.

I am writing this review whilst actually staying at the hotel in room 1231 which is above the court yard. My wife and I have not been overly affected by the suggested noise in previews reviews. Breakfasts have been excellent with a large choice available and contrary to some reviews the cost is not unreasonable although breakfasts have been included as part of our club room deal. The staff have been very friendly and helpful. Whist not wanting a single out one member of staff, we are particularly impressed with the the way Jamal performs his duties and how helpful he was. His instructional help for us to visit Johor Bahru were brilliant and the complexities of negotiating the customs procedures at the borders made the trip so easy by the help he gave us. We travel to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu next and if the standards in hotels we have booked there as good as the Albert Court then we shall be delighted with our trip to the Far East. Should we return to Singapore, we shall definitely stay at the Albert Court.

We booked at Village Hotel Albert Court for two stays on our stopover to and from Malaysia for a total of six nights. The booking was made months earlier without us knowing the Hotel was renovating during our stay. When we were aware of this I rang the Hotel voicing our concerns. On arrival we had been upgraded to a Club Room well away from any noise of renovating for both of our stays and were made most comfortable. We would like to thank management and staff for their help and as we visit Singapore each year will certainly stay here again. Peter and Gwen McLean. Australia

4 nights in March 2014 - Due to ongoing renovations we were put in a "family room" on the ground floor, the A/C was poor and the fridge did not work, after the first night we were moved to the third floor, the room was small but pleasant. The staff reacted well to our issues.

We stayed overnight on the way between Australia and the UK. It was part of Singapore Airlines' SIA Stopover package and was great value, with a return bus trip to Changi airport also included.

The service at the hotel was excellent. In particular, we want to thank Jamal for the special attention he paid to our two children upon our arrival. We had had problems with our luggage not arriving at the airport and the children were tired and unhappy. Jamal's magic tricks and friendly manner turned the whole day around for us. The reception staff were also friendly and helpful.

There was renovation work being done at the hotel but there were no issues with noise (we stayed on a Sunday night). Our rooms were fine and the hotel is close to places to eat.

We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2014. The room was lovely and very clean. However, it was very small, way smaller than it looks in the pictures. But for a vert short stay like ours it was fine. The staff were very friendly and the place has a small but nice gym as well as a steam room. Hotels in Singapore are generally expensive so this place provided very good value for money. It is close to the Little India MRT so getting around is not a hassle and there are plenty of affordable places to eat nearby. We did not book breakfast with the room, which turned out to be a bad idea as there are no places nearby to get a decent breakfast - the eating spots nearby serve breakfasts which consist of the same type of stuff that one would eat at lunch or dinner, which is the norm in that part of the world. There are also no places to buy breakfast materials like muffins etc. The breakfast at the hotel was outrageously overpriced. Budgeting for it in advance by booking it with the room is a better option. All in all a good place to stay.

Dear Okyerebea M,

Thank you for taking your valuable time to write this review to provide us with feedback.

Our room sizes average 24sqm for our Superior and Deluxe Rooms. Our frequent guests do find this adequate, especially in Singapore context. On top of the size, we also ensure the room is equipped with the right facilities and amenities, which includes complimentary wifi.

As for breakfast, we do encourage our guests to book our room with breakfast package. In the case that our guests prefer to have breakfast outside of our hotel on certain days to ensure variety, they can visit Little India or Bugis for more breakfast options.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We look forward to your next stay with us.

Stay Village. And discover.

Yours sincerely,
Yan Leng
