“Going back this May”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

WRITING THIS REVIEW BEFORE ACTUALLY EVEN GOING THERE.

I had stayed in this property last June and enjoyed my stay there. This time I asked my agent to book me this hotel again.

We shall be staying in this hotel from 6th May till 9th May. This time we are three families with a 3 year old kid. The lively interior, beautiful courtyard and close proximity to little India made me choose this hotel. Although I have spoken to a staff to provide me a quite room preferably on higher floors, I hope I shall get one.
.
We all are very excited for our 4 days vacation in Singapore this May and I hope that staying in Village Hotel Albert Court by Far East Hospitality will complete our wonderful experience and give us beautiful memories to share.

Shall write about my experience when I am back...

See You Guys Soon..

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

Even before staying at this hotel, I had been impressed by its approach to customer service when I received a prompt and flexible response to feedback I had sent in relation to my reservation. This was strengthened during my three night stay in a Club Room. All the staff I dealt with were very pleasant and went out of their way to be helpful.
My room was quiet, spacious and well-equipped, with a very comfortable bed and a good bathroom, though its position facing onto the pretty roofed courtyard of the Club Wing meant it received very little natural light. This was compensated for by a good range of ceiling lights and lamps.
The hotel's buildings and courtyard are very attractive and the location is convenient, with easy access to public transport and restaurants. The comparatively reasonable rates make it an excellent choice.

I stayed in the annex building to this hotel, the room size are pretty good. Centrally located and easy access to shopping venues. Service at the cafe and especially the front desk was welcoming and genuine. What impressed me most was an unusual help I got from an Indian gentleman, unfortunaely i did not get is name -Suresh / Mukesh? Who was walking around the hotel. I was looking to buy some electronics and not only he gave us tips where to go and how to get good deals, he also had great knowlege on tax refunds. He walked us to the Sam Lim Sopping Mall.I did not expect such kind assistance and it was a pleasant surprise. The only issue i had was the noise, could be the contructionwhich i dont think the hotel has any control.

If you are business traveller and looking fro smething different than the marble floors, deocr full of glass this is the place to stay in Singapore. The staff is very couteous...( not too many places in Singapore where you will find genuine courtesy these days...and mind you I have lived there for 14 years). The internet and Wifi is good, rooms and bed are clean and comfortable, shower and water is good,breakfast is nice and lots of other non business folks living there which gives a different feel. The rates are not very cheap ( but what is cheap in Singapore these days !) but are absolute value for money.... Oh and the location... Just outside Little India, close to CBD and Bras Basah and Orchard ( 5 mins away by cab) the location offers easy access for everything you would want. Many restaurants at street level with outdoor seating where you can also take a puff is a luxury these days. Just try and get a quieter room though or join the fun at street level.

Room Tip: Just as the staff at the reception for a quieter room and 7 out of 10 times they will oblige.

This hotel is ideally situated for exploring areas such as Little India and China town. It offered tremendous service. Staff were friendly and polite were nothing was too much trouble.
Our room was clean and tidy and offered complimentary Wi Fi, iron, kettle, hair dryer etc.
Buffet breakfast offered great choice and eggs were freshly cooked to order.
Situated in Albert Court which gives you a great choice of restaurants. Generally cannot complain about anything.

I am writing this review whilst actually staying at the hotel in room 1231 which is above the court yard. My wife and I have not been overly affected by the suggested noise in previews reviews. Breakfasts have been excellent with a large choice available and contrary to some reviews the cost is not unreasonable although breakfasts have been included as part of our club room deal. The staff have been very friendly and helpful. Whist not wanting a single out one member of staff, we are particularly impressed with the the way Jamal performs his duties and how helpful he was. His instructional help for us to visit Johor Bahru were brilliant and the complexities of negotiating the customs procedures at the borders made the trip so easy by the help he gave us. We travel to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu next and if the standards in hotels we have booked there as good as the Albert Court then we shall be delighted with our trip to the Far East. Should we return to Singapore, we shall definitely stay at the Albert Court.

We booked at Village Hotel Albert Court for two stays on our stopover to and from Malaysia for a total of six nights. The booking was made months earlier without us knowing the Hotel was renovating during our stay. When we were aware of this I rang the Hotel voicing our concerns. On arrival we had been upgraded to a Club Room well away from any noise of renovating for both of our stays and were made most comfortable. We would like to thank management and staff for their help and as we visit Singapore each year will certainly stay here again. Peter and Gwen McLean. Australia
