“Welcome rest from travel”
Reviewed August 7, 2006

Booked an overnight stay through Trailfinders on our way to Australia. Very clean with great breakfast.

The receptionist was very helpful booking us a cab to the Night Safari - Zoo at night. Strange, but very enjoyable.

On the way back the taxi driver recommended we did the cable car trip to Sentosa (Lovely island off Singapore). next morning, the person at reception gave us great directions and the MRT underground) to Harbour Front so we could go to Sentosa.

We only stayed in the Albert Court to break up our long trip to Australia, but it was perfect for that.

  • Liked — Service and free drink on reception after long journey
  • Disliked — Not Relevant
  • Tips/Secrets — Great spot for a one night stop over.

We stayed at this hotel as a stopover on our way to New Zealand for 2 nights. In general terms the hotel appeared a little tired in its appearance and did not live up to our expectations. We had a room in the Courtyard section of the hotel, but have to say the bed was very uncomfortable and the lounge bar lacked any atmosphere & consequently did not entice you into enjoy a pre or post dinner drink. We did however enjoy our breakfasts which were served in the colonial style dining area that gives this hotel its particular charm.

We stayed at the Albert Court for 3 nights in early May en route to Thailand from New Zealand. We arrived around 8.00pm after an $S18.00 cab ride from the airport. We were met by a very pleasant male receptionist, who attended to all our needs quickly and quietly. We had booked a "Superior Room" and he offered us an upgrade if we wanted it for a cost. We declined. A porter took our bags to our room which was on the 4th floor. An escalator takes you to the second floor and lifts go the extra floors.
The Superior rooms are not large but were comfortable for a short stay. There was an in room safe, tea and coffee making facilities, TV with free to air channels including, English news and movies. The bathroom had a shower over the bath and toilet.
Breakfast was included in the package and was more than adequate, western style. The dining room is a little small for breakfast and one may have to wait for a free table.
There are representatives of a number of tour companies resident in the hotel foyer. There are two jaccuzzis situated on the ground floor, a keycard is required from reception.
Complimentary newspapers are available if you ask.
The Albert Court is situated on the edge of Little India, a few minutes walk to Bugis St Markets, Little India MRT Station, The SIA hop on hop off bus is on the other side of the canal from the back door and 15 minutes walk to Orchard Road.
The hotel is a budget hotel ideal for someone looking for clean, cheap accomodation for a short stopover. It is suitable for a couple, additional rooms would be required for a family.
If I was staying longer as a tourist I would probably look for a larger establishment with a pool. In similar circunstances to my recent stay I would use the Albert Court again.

We had a very pleasant 6 nights stay at Albert Court Hotel in May 06, the location is great, near Little India, food court, market, shopping center and subway. Clean, modern, wi-fi and very good service.

The courtyard and lobby do look very nice. The rooms are not very big. The bed was nice and clean, the bathroom needs some improvement. And you are not able (allowed) to open the windows in your room. And don't you ever think about closing your eyes (sleeping) on the couch in the lobby - it's forbidden to do that as well. The breakfast buffet was nice - especially all the fresh fruits! But avoid to go there if it's real busy because everything is very narrow. Little India is just around the corner and we also did walk to the Orchard Road and Suntec City.

Got a taxi to Albert Court Hotel from airport, ask the driver for rate before you get in – 15 Singapore $ is what we paid. Waited a few hrs to get checked in (arrived at 6:30am)– staff was very courteous and tried to get us checked in early. Room had 2 single beds, clean and neat. Bathtub was very high and this was the case in all hotels we stayed in Singapore and Malaysia. If you ask the hotel to call you a taxi, the fee is $4, $5 during peak hours. I found that the same is true if you ask a restaurant to call a taxi. Money changer with good rates is across hotel in the courtyard. Hotel is 5-10 min walk from little India. Shops open after 10am. Jewelry stores had good exchange rate. There are a few restaurants across hotel on the main road. Anand Bhavan (vegetarian) - very basic looking restaurant but food and service were excellent and inexpensive. We had dosa, idli, and good coffee pretty much every morning. Anand Bhavan is a chain restaurant and we tried another location 2 blocks away for lunch (recommended by the first restaurant’s owner) and it was very good also. This location is air conditioned and more modern so it is good for tourists. Banana Leaf Apollo restaurant is within walking distance and the food is good. Take a taxi to Muthu's Curry - good fish curry. It is a 10 minute walk from the hotel to the Bugis Night Market-good shopping. There are a few 7-11's in the area. I got a phone card from there and it worked - there is a public phone outside 7-11 on the way to little india and also several phones outside the Tekka center. I would stay at the Albert Court again because of the convenience and location.

Good location in Little India as more of an atmosphere than say the Orchard Road area. Very close to underground making it simple to get around. Room was a good size and clean and have no complaints about the service. No swimming pool but we didnt really need one in the 4 days we were there. Would recommend this hotel and would definately stay again.
