“Great hotel ”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

We visited for 3 nights in July as part of a trip around Malaysia. The only downside is what everyone says - the rooms are small. But we knew this and so expected it and it was fine. Not a problem unless you will be spending a lot of time in the room. The only thing that annoyed me was that the mirror and dressing table weren't in the same place - so I had to stand to do my hair etc but not a big deal.

Rooms and nice and clean with good showers. Free wifi. Breakfast isn't included and seemed fairly expensive to us so we went to some local places - there is a great bakery around the corner and the market is just over the road - I'd definitely give it a go. You can get all sorts of local foods which are cheap and delicious.

We ate at the hotel restaurant one night and the food was good - huge pizzas. We also sat and had a couple of drinks after an evening at marina bay one night and the bar area is lovely, you can sit and watch the world go by and listen to some nice music.

Location isn't central but its really easy to get around - the hotel staff will help you but we found it really easy. The bus stop is right outside or the metro is ten minutes away.

All in all a great place to stay - thanks!

I stayed 3 nights here with my husband, and we loved it here. The staff was friendly and attentive.
We had red-eye flight and arrived at hotel at 8 am in the morning, and they offered us early check-in kindly. The hotel is located 7-10 min walk from Tion Bahru station and it's near by Tiong Bahru market. There are super-market at the station, cafe and nice restaurant around the hotel.

We didn't have any problems to find a place to eat during this stay though the place is a little bit suburb area. I listed a couple of cafe I've been during the stay here:
- Open Door Policy: http://www.odpsingapore.com/
- Tiong Bahru Bakery: http://www.tiongbahrubakery.com/
- Fouty Hands: http://www.40handscoffee.com/main.html
- Flock: http://www.flock.sg/

Of Course the restaurant in this hotel is good as well.
The downside are the tiny room and noisy neighbors.

I stayed in Nostalgia Hotel from the 17th to the 23 of July 2014. The hotel is extremely well kept, the staff was very professional and courteous. It was ranked first by the Tripadvisor in 2013. The position is handy, although in Singapore it is not hard to get around. I had asked for the late check-out since my flight was just before midnight and it was promptly offered, with an hour added to it. No taxi driver knew about the hotel, as it is a really small hotel, but one only needs to mention the Tiong Bahru markets which are around the corner and the problem is solved. The only issue one might have is that the rooms are really tiny although everything is there. The windows cannot be opened, but the air conditioning is very efficient and not too loud. The cafe, which is the part of the hotel is nice and the staff are excellent. At the Tiong Bahru markets' food court one can eat for next to nothing as long as you like oriental style foods and very good fruit is offered on the ground level.

After three weeks of travelling, our last place to visit was Singapore where we staid at the Nostalgia Hotel.
The room is pretty small, but had everything we needed. The staff is friendly and helpful. Very comfortable bedding!!!
(one tiny critical remark: why is the airco aimed right at your head when you're in the bed? It'll give you a bad cold!)

As for the particular room size, with an additional charge, guest could upgrade to a larger one upon availability.
About aircon facing the bed, yes we do have few of them and most rooms do not have that scenario. Guest could request for aircon that is not facing the bed if that is the preference.
Nevertheless we are continuing to improve in all areas of the hotel for the comfort and satisfaction of our guest.

My husband ,sister and myself stayed at the Nostalgia for three nights and were made very welcome. I love the location. Close to two MRT stations and within walking distance of many good eating places but still fairly quiet.
I was unwell for a day and the staff enquired after my health and arranged extra water.
Although the rooms are small they are very clean and well appointed.
The staff could not have been more accommodating and we will definitely be back.

I had 2 nights here this week and am sorry I had arranged to stay at Clarke Quay for the rest of the week. The Nostalgia is warm, friendly, clean, in an amazing art deco area & has the most comfy beds I have ever struck in a hotel! The rooms are small but so well appointed size is not an issue. The Tiong Bahru hawkers market is just across the road & there are countless bakeries and cafes nearby. The whole area seems to light up at night with seafood bbqs - smells amazing :-) So easy to get around too, with both MRT & bus close by. I will be back.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room - 204 was at the back, never heard a thing!

after staying for six nights in this beautifully kept small hotel, I can recommend it for it's central location in Tiong Bahru, right next to the main markets (many food and produce stalls) and is a short bus ride between the main hot spots, China Town, Orchard road, Santosa and Clarke / Boat Quays,the bus service is right in front of the hotel, the rooms are compact but immaculate, the lap pool is super clean, the friendly staff are extremely helpful and the beds are great. the hotel has a small restaurant next to the check in desk and there are plenty of other eating houses in all the surrounding streets and the modern Tiong Bahru center is just up the road.
