Please bear in mind that this is a budget hotel in very expensive Singapore. So, you have to be very realistic. My wife stayed here in late October 2013 and extended our stay 2 extra days, being reasonably happy with the accommodation. The place is small but very clean.There is barely enough room to place your luggage and hardly any room to walk around. Unlike other budget hotels, this hotel has a half size bath tub with shower curtain separating it from the toilet. So, if your idea of vacation is to sleep in your hotel room, you need to pay a few hundred dollars more for a 5 star hotel. The location is in close proximity to lots of inexpensive local food places, a 5 minutes walk to a laundromat, and 10 minutes walk to the subway (MRT station). According to some comments I had read, the area is in the red light district; however, I have not seen any such activities around the hotel or when walking around the area. The area is very safe and access to other parts of Singapore and the airport is very convenient by MRT or taxi. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for higher level. We stayed in room 704.

Arrived and was shocked at the difference between reality and description on internet! Reception hot and run-down; Air con was poor, if existent, carpets stained, wall paper peeling, cockroach baits, grubby amenities... my wife and child started crying.We decided to leave and forfeit the cost of 1 night. It's not a case of "well, you get what you paid for"! We found a near-new, modern, very cool hotel in a far better district - that had an awesome pool, friendly staff, etc for LESS than what we paid per night for this hotel! So thankful we didn't stay here, as our experience of Singapore would not have been as wonderful as it was for the 3 days we were there, if we had stuck it out. Lesson learned - don't believe the hotels own description!

Room Tip: Don't do it

Staffs are cool, not helpful especially when you encounter some problems.
We stayed 2 nights only. At the first night, we found a cockroach in our room and felt so terrible. We immediately went downstairs to ask them for help. But their attitudes felt like .. Come on, its normal. and sent a staff help us to kill it.

The air condition is super cold. We must turn it off at night, otherwise you will keep freezing the whole night. And I got flu at the end of the trip as well. The water heater sucks. You will feel sometimes cold and sometimes warm when taking shower.

But for a budget hotel, you may have a try. For me, I swear I will never go to there again.
It is not only just based on the facilities, but the location. It located near a red-light district. It is very dangerous for girls to stay, especially when sometimes you back hotel at night.

Dear Valued Guest

Thank you for bringing this matter to our management’s attention. We are disappointed to know that we did not meet you expectation during your stay with us.

All our hotels are contracted with a pest control company to safeguard and maintain the quality of the environment. We have since stepped up the pest control activities. As Singapore is a tropical country with summer all year round, we make a conscious effort to keep our guests cool while in the comfort of the room. Corrective steps are also taken to check on the water heater. We work closely with our housekeeping team to ensure our standards of cleanliness and comfort are consistently met. We have also counselled our front desk staff and encouraged them to take more initiative to speak out and find out how to address the needs of our guests.

Santa Grand Hotel Aljunied provides safe, secured and value for money accommodation. It is situated in a precinct where guests can experience Singapore's varied nightlife amidst old local shop houses serving authentic local food and lifestyle. This reflects the ambience and local taste in this heritage area. While the location may not be preferred by all travellers, we do have other Santa Grand hotels in our chain, like Santa Grand Hotel Lai Chun Yuen at Chinatown or Santa Grand Hotel Bugis to meet the diverse needs of our customers.

Please accept our apologies that some of the areas did not meet your expectation during your stay with us. We will work hard to improve our standards and it is feedback like this that helps us to do better. We hope to have an opportunity to host you again in the near future.

Regards,
Hotel Management Team

This was by far our cheapest stay in Singapore.Stayed at many Santa Grand hotels throughout Singapore ,but its our 1st time to stay in the Aljunied area.
We booked through Agoda , and paid just about $ 200 for a 3 nites stay.
We took off at the Aljunied MRT station and walk about 600 metres to reach this hotel.
We are surprised of what we get , for the price we paid.
We were given the 501 room ,with 2 twin beds.A relatively spacious room compared to other budget hotels in Singapore ,fast check in and out.Complete amenities with toothbrush ,hairdrier, small fridge, a safe deposit box, body and hair shampoo and even a half sized bathtub ! Quite friendly front desk, and they provide us 2 bottles of mineral water
We saw a mini gym also but we didn't manage to try.
The room came with no breakfast ,but its not a problem at all ,because everywhere you can see restaurants and kopitiams scattered within the hotel.
Overall are satisfied staying at this hotel,a minor glitch was the surroundings of this Geylang area.In the afternoon ,many people gathers at the road intersection here and some of them staring at us when we passed by.Felt a bit unsafe.

Service is good. Staff working there are all very polite. Clean spacious hotel. Free wifi. Sports channel. Value for money. Best choice for a budget hotel. Nice sitting area. There is also a mini gym now under construction.

My stay at Santa Grand Hotel Aljunied was very pleasant... I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions in the past, and for this area of Singapore (Geylang District) it is very nice, and if you are looking for a clean, quiet, and affordable hotel then this may fit the bill... the hotel is located close to the transit system (i.e., train station, Al Junied)... it does not classify as a five star hotel which I stayed at the last few nights before returning to work, but then again, my company paid for the 5-star which is always an added benefit... in any event, for the price it was comfortable and included all the amenities that I need as a traveller, and then again, how many amenities do we really need ?

Room Tip: You may want to look at a few rooms to get a good feel for the one that is conducive to your liking.
