“What a great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

We recently stayed at the Nostalgia Hotel and can say that we were very satisfied with our visit. Right from when we arrived the staff were extremely pleasant. The facilities were very clean. The rooms may have been a little on the smaller side but we don't go on holidays to spend all our time in our room. I noticed a previous comment about the bus station being too far away??? We found that the bus stop is almost at the front door of the hotel. We also liked the location as it was handy to all places that we wanted to visit. All in all a pleasant stay and if we are back in Singapore we would most certainly look to stay at the Nostalgia.

The only reason I booked this hotel was waves reviews on TA. Well for the first time I was disappointed.
Pros:
Nice and helpful staff - we talked to the people at reception for not more than 5 min during our stay but yes everyone was very courteous and helpful.
Local hawkers market very near by. cross the road and you will find all kind of food. However this is not a place for a vegetarian.
No sound in the morning - this is the only reason we stayed in this hotel during our entire trip. Our room (#205) faced a back ally and there was hardly a noise in the morning.

Cons:
First of all it is not really a budget hotel (or may be I got a bad deal to pay close to SGD200 per night without breakfast)
Secondly the rooms are SMALL - and this is coming from someone who lives in Hong Kong. Their superior room is ridiculously small - I mean you have to be in that cage to realize how small a room can be.
Third the location is OK - it is 1 KM from the nearest MRT. Taking a bus is really not an option as you end up walking 0.5km to the bus station. So either walk (after full day trip) or hail a cab (even if you are on a budget trip).

In the end we will not return to this hotel. Pay a few more $ and get a more convenient place to crash at night.

Really enjoyed my stay here, I have no complaints about this hotel and would stay here again when next in Singapore. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I arrived around 7am and they allowed me to check in early with no charge.

The location is safe and easy to find.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights On a return trip to LA from Indonesia. At first we were put off to traveling to singapore due to the seemingly lack of affordable hotels. Then we found Hotel nostalgia on TA and it definitely lives up the great reviews. This is a quality hotel for a decent budget. Rooms are very clean, bed is very comfortable, excellent customer service, great location close to well known hawker center, cafes, chinatown, MRT stations and buses. Staff was helpful recommending good local food spots. Being budget travelers we enjoyed our stay in singapore - staying at this hotel, trying different food at hawker centers, walking botanic gardens and orchard road. If ever in singapore again we would definitely stay here!

Having never been to Singapore before, we didnt really know where to stay or where the "hot spots" are, but Nostalgia was perfect. It isnt in the CBD but Singapore is relativley small and so easy to get around, that it didnt matter. Ten minutes walk takes you to the nearest MRT station, and if you dont want to walk, it only costs a few dollars. The Tiong Bahru food market is just around the corner for those that want a late night local meal for a few dollars. The hotel staff were really friendly, especially Perry who helped with everything that we asked and was so smiley and happy. The pool was fabulous. Its roof top and glass sided, which was perfect for the chinese dragon procession that went past while we were swimming. The most importnat thing was that the bathroom was not seperated from the bedroom by a glass wall :) It was a seperate room thankfully! Would highly reccommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay again. Thank you Hotel Nostalgia

My wife and I stayed here for 10 nights. The first room we were shown, a 'superior' double, was ridiculously small for 2 people and I asked for an upgrade which we got the next day. The hotel is 'low rise' and our new room was on the top (4th) floor overlooking the street. The downside of this was there was some street noise most of the time. The room was fine and well looked after by the daily staff with a local newspaper hung on the door handle every morning. The bed was possibly the most comfortable we've ever had staying in a hotel.
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and seemed to actually want to help. Every request or enquiry was met with enthusiastic response. I saw, on a map, the hotel was referred to as an 'Urban Boutique'. The hotel is away from central Singapore city but an easy 10 minute walk to either of 2 MRT stations and only 2 stops from Raffles or a S$10 taxi ride making it very convenient but nicely away from the congestion of the city.
Once you have the right room this is an extremely comfortable, convenient and friendly hotel to stay in. Any downsides are more than compensated by the staff. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Check on the size when booking

We stopped at Hotel Nostalgia recently for two nights. We arrived at the hotel around 8:45am and our check-in time was 2:00pm. Marrissa on the front desk was extremely helpful and said that our room was ready and that we could check in straight away. That was really great, as we were extremely tired after a very long trip and it allowed us to grab some much needed sleep. She also asked us what time our next flight departed and as it was a late flight she extended our check-out time without us even having to ask!

The hotel and rooms were very clean. The bathroom had a nice and powerful shower in with all the usual amenites. The room was well air conditioned.

We enjoyed the location of the hotel as it was off the main drag, but very handy for walking to China town, which took about 15 minutes. To get to the main shopping (orchard road) involved a 10 minute taxi ride, which costs less than $6 (off peak) ans less than $10 on peak. If you need a taxi, just ask at reception and they will flag one down for you within seconds.

Each time we approached the entrance to the hotel, the doors were always opened for us by the staff and they always greeted us in a way that made us feel very welcome. We also got lots of advice on the local attractions and help with booking them.

We would defnitely stop at this hotel again!
