Pathetic experience while staying in this hotel....
Unexpected answers from the staff of the hotel that it was your luck that you get better room in comparision to others.....
NEVER NEVER Settle to stay in this Hotel. This is Dpauls and Many similar tour Operaters favourite Budget Hotel with unhygienic food and worst service staff. Smelly Towels, Smelly Bathroom creepy rooms with horrible reception attendents whose only answers No to all questions......

We were initially booked to stay in The Grand Chancellor but at the last minute was transferred to Hotel Fortuna. We were downright worried having seen terrible reviews about the place. Thankfully we were given a renovated room. The room, linen and toilets were clean. Thankfully the window opened to the street facing Mustafa. The location was extremely convenient since we had Komala's veg restaurant serving Indian food since we had a 1 year old child not used to western cuisine. Also it is across the street from Ferrer park MRT station making it convenient to use the tube if required.

The service was subpar. The amenities were also poor. It was definitely not a 3 star for which we had paid the money. The minibar was inexistent and we had an old 16 channel small colour TV with just 5 channels available. There was no swimming pool and the complimentary breakfast was pathetic. Thankfully, there were lots of good restaurants available nearby which saved the day.

The bed was too soft to my liking while my wife and kid definitely enjoyed it. The AC was working properly and room was cleaned everyday. The bathroom and toilet were adequate. They were not too claustrophobic.

USP: Location. Indian Vegetarians would love it.

-ve: Strictly budget class. If you are expecting nothing more than a clean, comfortable place to stay, then this is it.

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated rooms facing Serangoon road.

This is not a great place but perhaps, OK place in the expensive Singapore heartland. Of course, it is located in the noisy little india but, I find its MRT connectivity and close proximity to many singapore attractions a great plus point. Some of the rooms like 3-bed, do not have proper ventilation which needs to be noted. Overall, its an average place.

Room Tip: 3-bed rooms do not have proper ventilation which needs to be noted.

I stayed at Fortuna for 1 night (thankfully) only. It was the worst hotel experience ever. The room wasn't clean, we encountered a cockroach in the room right after check-in. On complaint, the manager coolly blamed the previous boarders on having dropped some food on the carpet. !!!!!. The bathroom was very unclean. The morning breakfast is a sham, they have a tieup with an adjoining restaurant where u get served sub-standard and mostly cold food.

the only saving grace was that this was one night only. and would never go there again

Never book this hotel. If your tour manager puts you up here just run. The Hotel is a dirty, unhygienic, lodge in reality with no room service, no TV remote, no proper air conditioning, no proper room water and basically nothing which can please a customer.

Room Tip: Choose a room in some other hotel

I've read alot of negative reviews regarding this hotel but i can not agree with any of them. Fortuna Hotel, Little India was everything we needed. Basic, clean, attentive staff (who did all they could do get us into our room before the usual check in time of 2pm when we arrived at 8am- had a room for 9.30am) Really friendly staff. Hotel reception was ice cold, much needed in the humiditiy outside. Our room was fine (maybe a little too much lemon freshener but they had made an effort) A/C in room, clean bathroom and just generally clean and tidy. Surely thats all you need and should expect to get at the cheap price. Location was fantasic for exploring Little Inida. This hotel was absolutly fine, had a good experience and would recommend for Cheap prices, no frills & great location!
