“Two day stay in Sigapore”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We stayed at the Nostalgia Hotel for 2 nights prior to boarding our cruise. The Nostalgia is a 50-room boutique hotel located in a historic neighbourhood. The location may not be within walking distance of many attractions for all (especially if you don’t like the humidity and heat) but we, as pensioners, managed OK. We first walked to the Metro (10 min) and got a single to Bugis Street and the market, from there we walked to Raffles then Clarke Quay and back to the hotel with a couple of ‘Tiger beer’ pit stops on the way. Our Superior room was tiny especially with 3 cases and 2 bags but the bed was really comfortable, the room spotless, free Wi-Fi, the amenities, and one of the best hotel showers I’ve come across in all my travels. I cannot comment on the other higher graded rooms. The hotel boasts a rooftop pool with areas to sit and admire the lights from Singapore at night. There is an outside Bistro type restaurant that is lovely to sit with a drink and watch the world go by. On our first morning we were late for breakfast being a bit jet lagged, but the manager very kindly insisted that it wasn’t a problem and promptly served us our breakfasts. There are plenty of local restaurants close by which are very reasonable in price and the food is good. The manager couldn’t do enough for us; his waiting on and hotel staff were friendly and always ready to help. A lovely and reasonably priced hotel for Singapore.

Room Tip: Rooms other than Superior may be larger but if you are traveling light Superior has all you need.

Excellent friendly and helpful staff, food very good for what was required but the whole experience was let down by the rooms - They were small, and in need of modernisation.

Service could not be faulted, and the outside area was very pleasant.

Room Tip: Okay for stop over, but no more than that

The staff and management were the best we have come across in Singapore. They helped us to make the most of our 3day stay. Alway pleasant and nothing was ever a bother. Our room tho compact had everything we needed and the bed and shower were the best of our 3weeks in asia. Highly recommend this charming hotel.

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
