I made The Sultan my home base during a four night stay in Singapore and I'm glad I stayed put. There are a few things to love about the hotel: 1. Architecturally, the hotel is stunning. It's a boutique hotel built by combining several colonnaded buildings of the Arab Quarter. Arab flavor abounds inside, from Venetian arches to mosaic pattern...

The Sultan is trying to be a Boutique up-market hotel in the fashionable heritage area of Singapore. The hotel is in fact 4 old buildings converted to a single entity. When I went there first time in 2013 I did not stay but had a drink and small eats on the super roof terrace. This time the terrace was closed,...

The Sultan is a lovely boutique hotel constructed of a series of renovated shophouses. The rooms are mostly small (mine was a Japanese platform bed) but was all comfy. Solid wi-fi, good A/C, but breakfast left much to be desired. Overall location is good - proximal to MRT, Arab Street and Bugis

Although there are many high end hotels in Singapore, we chose this hotel after reading the reviews, as we were looking for a small hotel. It has the architectural style of the shophouses. We were on the ground floor, facing the alley (there is an Arab girl's school across the alley), and the room was very comfortable. The staff was...

A small and intimate boutique hotel by Kampong Glam and Arab St. Walking distance to Bugis and surrounded great little cafe and restaurants. The hotel is situated among a few shop houses style building. Room is clean and cozy. I stayed on the ground floor with window "facing" an alley so it's quiet. Only a shame that I can't or...

I stay at the Sultan almost every time I come to Singapore, which is often. The hotel is a small boutique hotel in the Arab quarter, and it's a stunning restoration of a whole block of shophouses. The interiors are very tasteful and stylish and oh so contemporary with lovely touches of the past. The staff are friendly, and unobtrusive....

I've actually never stayed at the hotel, I've only been to the bar, where they have jam sessions with jazz musicians on Sunday nights. It's a pretty cool setup - a lot of times, when big acts come through the country for a show, their band players will stop by and get in a session. Locals are also welcome to...

The distinctive building which houses The Sultan’s main lobby is so prized for its historical and cultural relevance, and architectural beauty, that it has appeared on a 1996 Singapore postage stamp.
