“You won't forget this place in a hurry”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

Honestly the oddest hotel I have ever stayed in, but not in a bad way.
Rooms - I believe every room is different here, we stayed in the reading room which was a twin. It was very compact but well designed to make the best use of the space. The beds were very comfortable but the large window could have done with blackout blinds as it was quite bright in the morning. The bathroom set up is very odd, the sink and vanity area are actually in the bed and living area. From the shower you can see the street, which is admittedly a little disconcerting, however having viewed the hotel from the street it would be very difficult for anyone passing by to see in.
Food - Breakfast was not what I was expecting. Although from the pictures it looks as though there is a breakfast area in the hotel, this is actually more like a kitchen area where you can eat your own food and buy drinks from a vending machine. Breakfast actually involves using a voucher in a local place. Be warned the food here is not at all western or continental, however all of the locals seem to eat here and we found it a good way to experience the culture.
Location - Fantastic! A 2 minute walk to Orchard Road and the Somerset MRT station. We paid 30 Singapore dollars for a metered taxi transfer from the airport at peak time.
Service - check in was swift but please note you pay on arrival. Little extras such as free toiletries, complimentary pastries and a fantastic service room with shower in the lobby and locked luggage room.

For all its quirks, this hotel was an experience I won't forget in a hurry and would recommend for anyone looking for a unique place at a cheaper price than the forgettable high rise hotels of Singapore.

Dear Tabitha04,

Thank you for your review and feedback of Lloyd's Inn. Coming from a Senior Contributor at Tripadvisor, we must say, we're honoured! We are glad that Lloyd's Inn provided a memorable experience that you won't forget for awhile (we certainly hope to see you back!).

We note on your comment regarding room blinds. Regarding breakfast and an in-house establishment, admittedly that is one thing our hotel does not have; we decided to go without an F&B kitchen as we seek to provide travellers a simple and tranquil environment, versus potential noise or other problems that could arise with an F&B outlet. Our complimentary breakfast tie-ups offer travellers an authentic Singaporean breakfast experience, and for those with a western palette, Freshly Baked whips up great sandwiches and brunch.

Thank you for your feedback, we hope to welcome you back to Lloyd's Inn again :)

My entire stay was a pleasant one. The staff are really great and super friendly. The accommodation was excellent and the room was wanting of nothing.
Two items for the hotel to consider: setting up a laundry service and perhaps a few more channels eg movies and news and documentaries.
I really enjoyed the biscuits and cakes on my bed when I returned in the evenings.

Room Tip: Make sure its not underneath the common area upstairs.

Good location and very peaceful setting. The rooms are well furbished. We got the Reading Room and it was superb. The beds and pillows were so comfortable that we got a good night's sleep. It was also well taken care of and very clean. The toilet was absolutely marvelous. Rain shower was perfect and there's a water hose beside the toilet bowl which most hotels do not have. open concept but there's curtains. very, very clean. and all we have are praises for it.

Lloyd's Inn is a classy little boutique hotel. The location is perfect - in the city but away from the hustle and bustle of activities - on a classy street and residential area.

You get good quality sleep.

The room is spacious for two people. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Good quality toiletries and towels. Enough storage space. The sofa and coffee table at the corner and the cleverly chosen carpet added the classy touch to the room. Nice toilet with an outdoor feel to it - always a plus! The air-con is in the perfect position - not blowing directly onto your face. Coffee/tea making facilities provided, with a small fridge.

There is an outdoor pantry area, with a coffee machine you can make your own espresso! There is also a vending machine to purchase soda. Comfortable and cosy space to sit and enjoy your chat, anytime.

Swimming/Dipping pool - this is awesome! You can enjoy a dip even at night with no time restrictions.

There are plenty places to eat in the area - both local and fine dining. Several pubs within walking distance. Shopping is just a stone's throw away!

Service is very good! Staffs were attentive, always smiling, helpful and courteous.

There is a big restroom in the lobby, almost the size of a room, for guest to freshen up/shower if you have to check out and your flight is not until much later in the day.

Room rate - Standard room is about $170 SGD per night before tax.

Two areas which we feel need improvement - breakfast and taxi service. Since there is no restaurant in the hotel, guests have to walk down the street to a near-by coffee shop for breakfast. Although it is a very short, less than 5 minutes walk, it would be perfect if the pantry area could be used to serve breakfast instead.
As for the taxi service - taxi request for the airport should be booked in advance instead of calling a taxi on the spot. It can be very tricky on weekdays during peak hours, as we have experienced. We had to wait almost close to 45 minutes for the taxi and thankfully my friend didn't miss her flight. But thank you to the front desk staff who handled it in a very well and calm manner. Great job!

Overall, it was a fantastic stay. We enjoyed our time there and will definitely go back again!

Thank you!

Dear Mokat72,

Thank you for your review and feedback. It is comprehensive which we are sure will be of great help to other travellers ;) We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us overall and your Lloyd's Inn experience. We will also convey your regards of good service to the Lloyd's team. We note your feedback on breakfast and taxi service. We agree that it would be great and definitely more convenient for guests if the pantry area could be used to serve breakfast, however we decided to go ahead without an F&B kitchen as we prefer to retain Lloyd's Inn's simple and tranquil environment for travellers to get a good night's rest, rather than potential noise or gatherings that may arise from providing F&B. We thank you very much for your feedback and will certainly keep it up and strive to improve on the areas that we lack.

Likewise, we look forward to welcoming you back at Lloyd's Inn again, Mokat72!

Welcoming staff, check in was swift! Our business room is located on the 1st floor, room 15. Love the cement floors and the loft concept.
Wifi was a little weak in the rooms. Love the wireless mouse and keyboard so we can access the internet using the smart TV on the bed.
Location wise, it was okay. A short walk down to Killiney road and the opp direction leads you to river valley road.
Will definitely be back for a staycation again!

Incredible interior, clean, novelty, great location, quiet. If you compare with the likes of hotels by price, then Lloyd will be much better. Be sure to try it, you will be satisfied. The next time we will stay only in this hotel. Sometimes WiFi was unstable.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are brighter.
