“Stay at the Nostalgia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Small, but very nice and very clean hotel. We're greeted every time going in or out of the hotel, very helpful. Central to everything,or short taxi journey. Room was a bit small, but other was good, great views

Welcomed at 11 pm by the receptionist who helped us to our well appointed double room with quality bed linen. Good location, small, nice feel. Meals could be taken inside or outside. Pleasant swimming pool and sitting area. Fine for short stay.

My family booked this hotel after reading the reviews. There was hesitancy at first only because of the location when I looked it up in Google maps. The taxi driver from the airport was quick enough to know the location if you mention that the hotel is very near to Tiong Bahru Market. The taxi parked at the side of the hotel but the staff noticed us immediately and assisted us with checking in. There was no queue so checking in was a breeze and the reception staff were very polite & patient in explaining everything to us. The checking-in process is not that tedious.

They were always readily & happy to assist us with regards to our stay and in our queries on how to go about with our tour of Singapore. They even called the tour operator in our behalf to ensure the right pick-up point. The hotel has multicultural staff and we can see that they work well together as a team to be able to attend to their guests to the best of their abilities.

With regards to location, yes, the hotel is not at the city center. However, there are two train stations just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Anyway, Singapore's MRT system is not "rocket science" to figure out how to get to your destination and it's very efficient. If you don't want to walk, then you can take a taxi. Just bear in mind that at certain (peak) times, taxis charge extra.

As mentioned earlier, the hotel is very close to Tiong Bahru Market where stalls and stalls of delicious food & drinks are sold for lower prices than in other places. Yes, the hotel (and its rooms) maybe quite small compared to other hotels in Singapore. But for us, the staff have big hearts in trying their best to be there & attend to their guests. Bear in mind, just like anywhere else when there's a queue, we also need to be patient and wait for our turn. Thank you for the kindness. Keep it up Hotel Nostalgia! To go again on holiday to Singapore? Definitely, we'll check-in again at Hotel Nostalgia.

The Nostalgia Hotel in Tiong Bahru was a really nice surprise. Really helpful reception staff and relaxed eating with good quality food. My room was compact but fine for one person: very clean and comfortable with all amenities working well. Nostalgia is in a lovely old art deco area - funky shops and a variety of very good but affordable restaurants nearby. Tiong Bahru Market is very close to Nostalgia - a fabulous place to explore traditional Singapore street food in a single location. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely book to stay there when I'm next in Singapore

Stayed for 2 nights on business in Singapore and chose Nostalgia over the bigger chains because of reviews on trip advisor. As mentioned in previous reviews the rooms are very small but they are clean, well enough equipped and have a bit of character about them. Staff were all courteous and helpful and I enjoyed the outdoor dining area and bar. Little pool on the roof was pleasant enough. The location was fine. There were a couple of local restaurants and convenience stores nearby. Taxi to the Quays or downtown only took 5-10 minutes.

Pros:
Clean room and hotel.
Front desk attended to at all hours.
Aircon maintained constant temperature.
Quiet room.
Helpful manager in the morning.

Cons:
Both ladies on the late night and early morning shifts were HOPELESSLY incompetent. While their English was good, their listening skills were abysmal. This caused a lot of wasted time, incl having to walk down to reception when telephone communication failed. The internet stopped working just as I was trying to send a time sensitive critical email. Won't be coming back to his hotel.

We spent only one night here, arriving with a group at 10 am, a couple of hours before the last guests had left. Top marks to the staff who were not only efficient but warm and friendly too. They booked us in, securely stored our luggage and were very helpful with tourist iguidance. The hotel was beautifully clean and modern but this didn`t disguise the fact that our double room was tiny. We are a tall couple and found the bed rather short and too soft by European standards and one side was right against the wall. Also the air conditioning was noisy and fierce. Ok for a bed for overnight but felt it was not a room, nicely fitted as it was, that was suitable for more than one night. However, the location was very good and we would stay here overnight again.
