Stayed along with my family in May 2022.The check-in was smooth & breezy.Thank you to Mr.Yap & Ms.Jona for the hassle free check-in experience.The room allocated to us was so spacious,bright,super clean with all the sets of amenities.
Many thanks to housekeeping staffs for keeping our room clean throughout our stay.
The breakfast buffet spread and the service at the Albert Cafe restaurant was excellent.
The check-out process was fast too as same as check-in.
Special thanks to Mr.Jamal for performing coin magic to my daughter which she liked it & enjoyed a lot.
Kudos to each and every staff member of the hotel for their impeccable service.
Overall, it was a heavenly stay & we will recommend this hotel to our relatives & friends.
We can't wait to come back to this beautiful hotel for more staycation.

We spent a total of 5 nights at the Village Court recently, 3 days at the beginning of March and 2 in mid March. We felt that while our room attendant Zainah was very affable and kept our room looking great, the rest of the staff lacked much/any interest in customers. One of our travelling party decided not to travel at the last moment and on arrival at about 7.30am we were encouraged to take a smaller room than we had booked is exchange for the time between 7.30 and 2 on the first day. I was a bit dubious as the price difference between the rooms was significant but agreed. When we got back from travelling they wanted us to take a smaller room again only this time there was no quid pro quo. We said we would take the room we originally booked. We ended up in a much smaller room than the triple family room our travel agent had organised for us. Disappointing. We would have been satisfied if they had offered us a drink at the bar but nothing like this happened. Given the absence of tourists at the hotel at the time due to Coronavirus you would have thought a little effort could be made.

Everything is great and smooth from check in to checkout. Staff are all friendly and accomodating. Bed is comfy and the bath/toilet is clean. Would be great if they also include hair dryer along with the clothes iron inside the room.

My stay at this hotel has been disappointing. After a tiring red eye flight I arrived at the Hotel just before 9 AM hoping a room will be available so I can have a shower and maybe quick nap before a meeting. To my surprise, I was told only higher category rooms are available and I need to pay an extra 70+ per night. In times of corona I really find this hard to believe and I got the impression the staff wants to up-sell. I've checked with my friend's who work in the hotel management business in Singapore and current occupancy rates are extremely low averaging 20-30% due to the corona situation. That aside, I'm coming to Singapore once a month and always stay with hotels of the Stayfareast group (typically Village Hotel Bugis, Elizabeth Hotel) and at those premises I've been previously upgraded to club room and Suite in similar situations which makes me feel valued and happy to come back. After this experience, I will not come back to Village Hotel Albert Court. I had to take a shower at the Gym and shave there and I can tell you that place is not nice, only small towels from the gym are available, and lots of mosquitoes.

We reached the hotel early. The staff at the reception was warm and helpful. The room was small but good. There was no service in this hotel as they were always short of staff. Breakfast cafe is really small and so you keep banging into the staff as well as other guests. Breakfast spread was ok, not great. One plus was that we request for gluten free bread, which they happily provided. Jason at the reception was extremely rude over the phone and even when I went to talk to him at the reception. I called from my room to ask for some bowl and spoons, he said I will have to come down to the reception to take it or wait for 30 mins as they were short on staff. I strongly feel a hotel runs with good attitude and warmth . This place is lacking that. House keeping was very good.
In the end you can get better places to stay in at this price.

It is magnificant from the moment we arrived. We met with a bunch of amazing staffs who help us with our huge amount of bags and brought up to our rooms with ease. The friendly team called and checked in with our family every single day, asking about the meals provided, the rooms, any things that we further require and it is really pleasing to have people taking care of us so much even though we are meant to be on quarantine.

Our room was large and had everything you will need. Especially appreciated was the complimentary bottles of water each day as the tap water is not suitable for our child.

My only complaint would be that this is a special stay instead of a regular vacation and we did not get to enjoy or explore the hotel facilities. I would definitely stay at this hotel again but it does look like renovation is due. We were a family and had rooms next to each other which was very convenient, certainly very thoughtful of the staffs. Thank you.

We were supposed to stay here from Jan 2-Jan 4, but my brother got sick so we extended til Jan 15. Rebooking is easy and convenient. Rooms are spacious and cleaned everyday. Kudos to Micheal, our room attendant for making sure our rooms were cleaned, can't forget how he took care of my daughter's stuffed toys. We are given complimentary drinks in our mini fridge everyday. Everything that we needed was attended by your team. Great location . It is near to everything. Frontdesk attendants are super nice esp Sir Gian Carlo. In our 15 days of stay at your hotel, we left Singapore with a greatful heart because of your service and hospitality. Will definitely go back to Sg and definitely stay at your hotel. Keep up the good work guys.

I had 2 stays at the Village Hotel Albert Court in January.
The hotel is in a great location and simple to get to the highlights. The rooms are clean and spacious and offer a very good buffet breakfast.
The hotel is very good value for money in Singapore which is generally very expensive for accommodation.
The hotel itself is 3 star and not to be compared with its 5 star counterparts but really does offer extremely good value for money and is practical and very well run and maintained. The staff are all very friendly and obliging.
Although the hotel is not in the heart of Singapore it is within walking distance to
some sights but if the weather is just too warm, download the Grab App which is an equivalent of Uber but better. Very cheap, prompt and reliable.
I would certainly return to this hotel.

Such a great experience because I was able to stay at this hotel while on vacation yesterday. My family which can be called large with 5 members is very satisfied with the rooms in this hotel. The room is very big and has a lot of space to put things. The rooms they provide are also clean and tidy. In addition, the toilet in this room is also quite large and they provide a bathtub. The hotel is very close to the MRT station (Rochor). Moreover, we only need to walk 10 minutes to the Bugis area.
