The hotel is accessible to Chinatown mrt, around 5 minutes. Internet is reliable, you may even access it while eating your favorite street food near the hotel. Sheets and pillowcases are fresh each day

This really should get a lower score, because of the price - about £43 for a single bedded, windowless "cell". But it was one of the least expensive hotels we could find in Singapore. The location is good - in the heart of China Town and about five minutes walk from a metro station. The building is interesting, as a...

Our stay was very short but quite pleasant. Upon arrival, even though the hotel did not have any bell man, one of the ladies walked out from the reception counter and offered her assistance to carry our small suitcase after checking in. That was unexpected. The room was small, and the towels in the bathroom were smelly. The complimentary wifi...

The hotel is showing signs of shabbiness with worn carpeting and furnishings. My room was quite small, which is normal for this neighborhood, but the layout of the room made it even more cramped. The shower is not isolated, so water goes everywhere in the bathroom. The staff is indifferent and there are no facilities, such as a bar or...

The architecture of the hotel and its surrounding area makes for the entire experience of staying in this hotel. Although the rooms are relatively small, what makes up for it is that amenities were complete and well-maintained.

I visited Singapore in mid January .The Chinese New Year was about to begin.The Streets were full of big and small stalls. My company planned my stay at Santa Grand which was quite economical.The best part being it was just a 5 min walk to China Town Station Gate No.A. The staff was headed by Ms.Christine. She offered me a...

This was definitely a unique experience and your appreciation of it really depends on the kind of person you are. If you want to save some money and give up a bit of comfort to do so, then this is your place. If you’re used to a Best Western style hotel or higher, this might not be for you. I’m...

After one night here, we felt we had to leave and check out early. It is clear that when booking a room at this hotel, you are paying only for the location. Upon arrival, it was clear that rooms were pretty small, the beds extremely hard and our air conditioner was noisy throughout the night. The main concern however was...

Friendly and helpful staffs. Central location in Chinatown. Food and goodies downstairs literally. Downside... small room, noisy as stalls are located downstairs. Truly RED in colour. Antique looking toilet. No fridge to store fruits. Unsure if pros outweigh cons....

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
