“Wonderful service”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We stayed at the Kam Leng Hotel for 7 days. We requested side by side rooms because my brother-in-law is visually impaired. The first night we couldn't get them, but the next morning the staff showed us the rooms they had and we were able to move. Cleaning staff was efficient and very friendly. Front desk staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. They told us directions and sold discount attraction tickets. Hotel is clean and close to the mall, where you can catch the subway to travel all over the island. Bus stop is across the street. We will stay here again when we return. Wonderful place to stay.

Singapore is not a cheap city so this was a nice little budget hotel (by Singapore standards). The rooms were fine, a little noisy - we looked at three rooms before deciding on the one we stayed in, and I'm glad we looked around as the other two options were not great (one was very dark with no natural light, the other was very very noisy). We stayed for five nights in early June. The real drawcard is the location right across from a great foodcourt, where you can eat good, cheap, local food - try the pan-fried pork & chive dumplings from the place next to the beef noodle place. There are lots of buses near by to get into the city, and the MRT is a little walk away. Little India is walking distance, but Singapore is super hot. The aircon in the room was welcome. Wi-fi was reasonably good and fast. We ate once at the diner in the lobby and the food was ok and overpriced in comparison to the food court across the street (although note that apparently the food court is being ripped down in a few months for apartment buildings - boo). Overall we were happy with this little place as a base for our time in Singapore, but don't come in expecting a fancy hotel. The rooms are small but this was ok for us, even though we had two big backpacks.

Room Tip: Keep asking to look at different rooms if you don't like the ones you are shown on arrival.

I always stay at the Kam Leng when is Singapore, it's a good quality hotel in a good location. It's close to little India but not right on top of or in the middle. It's about a 10 min walk to Farrer Park MRT and Lavender MRT. The hotel is opposite the Lavender Street food hall which is a must for food lovers, it's open 24/7 so you can visit anytime for a wide range of food. Overall I cannot fault Singapore, I've been here 5 times now and love it every time. For nightlife best place is Clarke Quay which is reachable by MRT bus or jump in a taxi as they are relatively cheap. Lots to do in Singapore, enjoy.

Extremely clumsy room. Don't get fooled by the pictures. You will not get enough space to keep your luggage if you have a check-in bag.

I have no complaints apart from the small size rooms which were also damp.

Room Tip: Stay away if you can.

It was a nightmare finding an OK hotel in Singapore at a reasonable price. I suppose we managed it because this hotel was OK, but not any more than that. Our room was adequate and the free WiFi worked fine. The bathroom was less than ideal with the shower not being sectioned off from the rest of the room. My girlfriend reckoned there was a damp smell in the room.

If you do stay here make sure you check out the Japan Besar swimming pool just across the road. The price is excellent, it's a good 50m pool and I was amazed at the cheap price.

1. Staff was only friendly to foreign guests. One of the male staff on night duty was dozing while on duty at the reception.
2. Aircon was not cold, I woke up in sweat in the middle of the night. wall's paint was peeling although it was relevantly a new hotel.
3. Room with cracked bathroom door was assigned to me and I inform the staff that brought extra pillow for us about it. He assured us that it is fine and door is still safe to use. But after check out, hotel charged me $500 for the door. They said that I broke the door which I told them that I didnt, and that I also reported to their staff about the door. According to hotel, they charged me because I did not report to the hotel reception on the spot, and reporting to the staff that brought me pillow does not count. Cool!
3. Bed was uncomfortable, bedsheet's thread count was horribly low, it's so rough.
4. Location was good, but as my room was facing the road, the sound of hissing buses and roaring bikes and car went on throughout day and night. Super duper noisy. Room was totally not sound proof, I can hear people next door using the toilet and hair dryer.
5. There were many flies in the room.

Stay at your own risk.

Good small town hotel on the edge of Little India. Everything was clean and tidy. Only the rooms are a bit small, but okay for one person. Best price performance ratio. Nice reception. Directly opposite a food court where the locals eat and usually a 7-Eleven. In the city, it is also not far arg, 10min Lovingly renovated walk to the nearest MRT station Farrer Park, see pictures. Who needs a window in the room from claustrophobia reasons should not stay here :). WiFi works fine.
