Spent 2 nights here recently-April 2014-and was very happy with our choice. The hotel is of a 'colonial' style building which has charm and is more personal than some of the super corporate, superficial hotels that seem to prosper in this part of the world. Although the room not overly large, it was more than adequate with exceptional cleanliness and having all the facilities of a modern establishment. We upgraded our stay @ $40.00 per night to include a breakfast and a all you can drink 'Happy Hour' in the bar each evening which, given the prices of the drinks at the bar represented great value and with the breakfast option thrown in was also a great bonus with plenty on offer either at the help yourself buffet style breakfast café or if preferred, a more continental option in the 'executive' lounge for which the upgrade also included. Here also, each evening was a 'mini' buffet presented with soft drinks, tea & coffee.
Its location near to the 'Little India' district was perfect for sightseeing and was itself very interesting, and only a $10.00 Taxi ride away from the harbour area and all of its attractions such as the Singapore Flyer- a real must do with breathtaking views. This by the way is akin to the London Eye. From here, we then had pre-purchased tickets for the Hop-on, Hop-off open Topped bus which gets you all around the main attractions of Singapore affording you a great vantage point and the ability to get off where interested- I would highly recommend anyone doing the same for value for money on this ticket which, having purchased them in England before embarking on our trip, also included a free boat ride around the harbour- again a real treat.
A must do is a visit to the infamous Raffles Hotel which seems to be a pre-requisite for most travellers to Singapore but be warned, very pricey if choosing to eat and/or drink in its notorious bar, but, to say you've been there & done it may this could be viewed as being worth it. At least with even a drink-or Singapore Sling- only, you can eat as much of the 'monkey' nuts as you like which you are given, discarding their shells on to the floor-again which is a pre-requisite and are actively summoned to do!
These attractions were no more than 20 mins away by the taxi from the hotel which was a quiet, peaceful enclave, after a serious days' sightseeing.
Would happily and readily stay here again!

This hotel is in a very good location near Little India MRT station. It is also in court which means there are very pleasant bars to enjoy but as they are not noisy at night they do not interfere with sleep as they close by midnight. The superior hotel room is large by Singapore standards and is clean with tea/coffee facilities, fridge & safe. The buffet breakfast caters to all tastes and there is free WIFI. We were also able to launder 2 pieces of laundry per day which was a pleasant surprise

Excellent hotel in a fabulous location, close to markets and underground, our room had recently been renovated and the only fault we had was there was no bedside lamp, my wife likes to read before she sleeps and this wasn't possible.
The breakfast doesn't have European type food but it suffices

A truly memorable and comfortable stay at this beautifully adorned, located and well maintained hotel. Warm welcome by the reception staff (Stephen, Michelle, Melvin) and ever helping attitude of all staff members at all times - day or night ! Sumptuous and well stocked breakfast with wide spread of veg and non-veg items to suit all palates. Conveniently located just outside the cacophony of Little India and still a stones throw away. Highly recommend to all visitors to Singapore. Value for money, Amazing Location & Excellent Service !!

Room Tip: For a bigger family book the Family Room - its really spacious and comfortable !!!

We, a family of 2 adults and 2 children, had stayed at Village Hotel Albert Court for 3 nights from April 18th to April 21st and were very much pleased with our stay.
Rooms: The rooms were nice and clean. Bathroom had a bath tub so that was a big plus for the kids.
Food: Breakfast had a good spread, including some Indian dishes too. We did not have any other meals in the hotel as we used to return late after sightseeing.
Wifi: Working as expected. The speed wasn't great but it wasn't bad either considering that it was free.
Location: Hotel is NOT in Little India but close to it and the Little India MRT station.
Staff: Very friendly and courteous staff. Check-in and check-out as a breeze. They also helped us with the proper directions to all the tourist spots.

The only minor niggle was that the computers in the common area were not working. Apart from that, everything else was perfect. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to stay in Singapore.

Room Tip: Check the hotel website before booking as we found their rate better than those by other agencies.
