“Perfect-I will be back”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

I stayed 3 nights at the Nostaglia Hotel. The staff were superb!! Extremely helpful. The location was great. Easy to access any part of the city on buses or trains.

The room was smallish is size but beautifully decorated. The bathroom was spotless. Bed was super comfortable. There is a lap pool on one of the level. Great to sit in and watch the passing traffic.

Tiong Bahru is a cool little suburb that is worth walking around. Restaurants, cafes and small shops. Upstairs at the market there are food stalls where your can eat dinner or lunch for less than $5.

Great place- I will be back

The hotel is located right next to the Tiong Bahru Market where there are a wide selection of local cuisine at VERY reasonable price. Transportation-wise, the hotel is very close to some bus stations which would take you to the MRT stations within 2-3 mins. If you prefer walking, the hotel is 10-15 mins away from two MRT stations. Service is excellent. Feel free to approach any of the staff and I believe they would be more than willing to help. However, rooms are really small but since we did not have a lot of luggage it was alright for us.

First of all, we arrived about 1 a.m. on a Friday and had the hotel booked for that Friday night (a mistake on our part) and the hotel was almost fully booked. The woman at the desk gave us the last remaining room in the hotel and felt so terrible because the bed was very small so she gave the room to us for a very good price (even though it was not the hotel's fault that we didn't book correctly). The rest of our stay the staff was extremely kind and helpful to us. This includes helping us to re-confirm a tour so that it didn't get cancelled and tipping is off on the Singapore tourist passes such were essential to our travel around the county. We were so impressed with the customer service. It was a clean hotel, not in the middle of the busy part of Singapore but within walking distance to Tiong Bahru mall and Chinatown. There was also a restaurant/bar conveniently attached to the outside of the hotel that we utilized a good bit. Excellent experience.

When searching for hotels I often look at whats the best deal for the price and in SIngapore that's Hotel Nostalgia. It's clean, safe, efficient & the staff is pleasantly welcoming. The lobby looks much grander than what you'd expect. Elevators can only be operated with a room key. It much be stated that the rooms are small... almost comically small BUT honestly how much time do you spend in the room? You're supposed to be out seeing the city! And besides most hotel rooms in Singapore measure smaller than what a westerner would expect.That being said the rooms are very nice with all the essentials (shower, tv, fridge, ac) and it's actually very plush looking along with the tea, robes and desk table. There's a pool and sun deck both of which are decently sized and are a wonderful relief by the end of a hot, humid Singapore day. The hotel itself does not offer breakfast but that being said there is a cafe, (Potion) "attached" in the front to the hotel and your bill can be attached to the room. The food there is fantastic, great value and actually one of the cheaper places to get a bite in Singapore. The hotel is conventionally located about 1K from 1 train station and .5k from another. Easy to grab a cab too as it's not that far out. Hands down I'd stay at Hotel Nostalgia again.

Room Tip: I was told the corner rooms are slightly bigger. I didn't see another room so I truly have nothi...

We lucked out with this place! It's a great hotel for the price.

Location: It's located right next to one of the top ten hawker stalls in Singapore--Tiang Bahru Market. It's walking distance to Chinatown and more sights and hawker stalls. It's not in the heart of the city which means that it's much quieter. There are plenty of cafes and places to eat within a block. It's also a short 15 walk to either MRT station on two different lines--a great time saver.

Hotel: Totally clean, very new decor, carpet, wallpaper. Very small hotel which means less people. We had the pool to ourselves three out of four nights:) Yes, room was small but we never felt cramped. Bed was super comfy. Area is so quiet so we slept soundly night after night.
AC is strong. TV is big. Coffee and tea in the room was more than we needed.

Service: Very attentive, friendly and helpful. They even called to let us know that we had an odd number of socks in our laundry bag. LOL!

I can't say anything bad about this place. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor next to the pool. Pretty convenient for running back and forth for our beer...

All the reviews here on the great service are totally true- Staff is a delight to work with and can seem like a breath of fresh air. Rooms and grounds are immaculately clean and cared for, beds and sheets are pristine, water pressure in the shower is amazing. Breakfast and morning newspaper topped it all off. Basically met all of our needs at a great price. There's also a great hawker stand right across the street (Tiong Bahru Market) for cheap lunch and dinner. The only downside is that the rooms are tiny, possibly the smallest I've stayed in. However, they're very well laid out and modern, so it doesn't feel too cramped. Overall, it's great value for Singapore and I would definitely stay again.
