“Classy boutique”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Stayed there for two nights. Took a Deluxe Room. I must admit, that the name stands for the cozy boutique at the hearty place of city Little India.

Let me begin with the cleanliness, the room was pleasing for the eyes with its tidiness. The chambermaid were very helpful, fulfil your necessities as soon as you have requested for it.

Secondly, the breakfast was appetizing with the varities of food. Includes, croissant, two types of corn flakes, and two types of breads for toast. The main dish consists of five choices of eggs with ham, sausages and salad. The chef served us with a big smile on his face.

Thirdly, the staffs were very helpful, kind and filled with loads of patience. Mr Zubair, manager of the daulat guided us with all our destinations and even suggested places to visit like Botanical garden and Universal Studios. The front desk staffs were very patientce with all our enquiries about the locations and directions.

Finally, the location was amazing as it helped us reach our destinations in a shorter period of time. The location even has two different MRT services which helps us to travel even faster.

In conclusion, I experienced a wonderful stay and really felt being home. Thank you Daulat for the amazing experience I had with you.

A solo female traveller from Melbourne arrived to the hotel and was welcomed with such friendliness and efficiency. The rooms are equipped very modern and stylish features. My window overlooked the large pool. A very generous hotel with good quality linen ( VIP) and coffee. I'm currently sitting on the patio eating my complementary breakfast and watching little India waken. The staff are no fuss but incredibly helpful and thoughtful. Well done Daulet I cannot wait to come back!

Clean and crisp boutique hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. The rooms are very modern with tv, aircon, a very nice bathroom and a lot off storage space. The wifi is flawless. The hotel is located in a small street in the heart of little india, so many of the cabdrivers dont know it. Just ask them to drop you at Tekka Centre and ask the locals. The swimming pool is small but it will do the job!!

We stayed in the DAULAT and loved it, am surprised by the recent comments about noise as we experienced none and our room was next to the garden which backs onto the lane way restaurant.

The thought that has gone into the detail was great: coffee machine in reach of bed!, bath products, free flow soft drink and juices. The staff were very helpful as well and was the best breakfast we had on our trip in Asia, well the closest to western style anyway.

Note, I don't think it would be comfortable for a long stay, as the rooms are small and their is a lack of storage space for luggage. I think the glass (semi-frosted where it counts) shower and toilet would challenge some people as well as the floor level bed .The hotel is very near to metro.

The Daulat is an interesting boutique hotel located in Little India.

In Dec 2013, riots by foreign workers from the Indian subcontinent broke out in Little India and shocked the tiny island.state of Singapore. With emotions fueled by alcohol, ambulances and police cars were overturned and set on fire. Law enforcers were also injured. Riot-free for decades, the incident rocked the island. In the aftermath, shops and retailers in the Little India area are not allowed to sell alcoholic drink on weekends when migrant workers congregate at Little India.

There are all kinds of shops in Little India. There are goldsmiths (Indians love gold), traditional green grocers selling fresh fruits and vegetables, provision shops selling spices, electronic stores selling all kinds of appliances as well as many restaurants selling very affordable and filling North and South Indian food. The Daulat’s neighbours include many backpackers hostels, pubs aimed at backpacker tourists and Bangra pubs such as Chennai Angels. There is even a tapas bar nearby. A couple of streets away, you have a French restaurant Cocotte. Lastly, next to the Daulat is a rather abysmal mall The Verge. You can find a pharmacy, a supermarket, an ATM as well as a few other shops. A 15-20 min walk or a couple of bus stops way, you will find Mustafa Shopping Centre. Mustafa Shopping Centre offers literally 24-hr shopping and you can find literally everything there. Let’s say you have a flight out of Singapore at 4am. It might be a good way to spend your last hours in Singapore shopping at Mustafa from 12am to 2am and then make a mad dash to the airport to check in. A more unusual sightseeing itinerary might be to check out Desker Road, a notorious red light district, just a couple of streets away from Mustafa and also within distance from The Daulat.

During the day, Little India is quiet with the leftover revelries from the night before. In the late afternoon, more shops open. By the time it gets dark (7pm), Little India comes alive. Migrants workers, finished with their day’s work, make their way down to Little India to shop for groceries, produce and electronics or to socialise with their friends.

A pleasant boutique hotel in little india. Wonderful staff who can't do enough for you. The rooms are small and expensive given that there is no refrigerator, no safe in the room and no window In most of the rooms. Still the location is excellent and you would be hard pressed to find staff that really seem to like to assist you in every possible way. The breakfast is mediocre but at least there are free soft drinks whenever you want them!
