We stayed here for 3 nights and I would have to say that our stay was very pleasant. For those on a budget, this Inn is really recommendable. Located in front of Sim Lim Tower and just crossing the main road will get you to Sim Lim Square, a haven for electronics. Crossing this street will also take you to...

It was a really comfortable 5 days we spent at Mayo Inn in November. By Singapore standards, the price was great value-for-money and the location - within a 10-minute walking distance to 2 metro stations (Bugis and Bras Basah) and a 2-minute walk to a couple bus stops as well. The room was perfectly functional if a tad on the...

We stayed at the Mayo Inn in September and were impressed with the price and convenience of the location. I had actually booked for the Friday and Saturday nights of the Singapore Grand Prix weekend without realising so to pay £50 ($100SD) per night was incredible value! The rooms were quite basic but perfectly adequate and very clean and it...

The mayo inn is right near the main markets of bugis and a cheap as food court filled with awesome Singapore cuisine which tastes incred. It is a around $100 per night as the lift is broken now so they are knocking $10 off a night. The standard room is set out well a little on the louder side so...

Surprisingly a terrific, enjoyable stay. The roadworks & general grotty-ness of the area lowered my expectations of this hotel but inside was a clean, well appointed room. Bed was clean comfortable & spacious as was the room, bathroom was clean, modern & large. The refrigerator was cold & quiet.. Staff were helpful & friendly.. The area was between Chinatown &...

My girlfriend and I stayed here and it was the worst. We had to lug our heavy bags to our room simply because their lift didnt work. And what did they say? "It was posted on their site so we shouldve been informed." I mean..okay..not a problem? But to not even offer help? THEY DIDNT EVEN BOTHER TO ASSIST US!...

It is regrettable that justcallmehans did not have a pleasant experience when he and his friend stayed with us last month. Unfortunately, our only lift serving the Inn is shut down due to safety concerns. We hope to have permission to operate it again soon once all safety issues are resolved with the authorities. We have no porters to help...

Firs the positive things, the Mayo Inn is located very close to places that matter, close to Little India, Bencoleen, Sim Lin Square, Bugis MRT and Little India to name some. The choice for this place was its proximity to the place where I was to conduct my training. The rooms are clean, though a little small, but better than...

I wanted to like this place more. It's certainly cheap for Singapore, so I splurged on a SGD150 - including taxes - "rooftop terrace" room, also discounted by $10 due to MRT work that means the lift is not working. The room's terrace turned out to be a very small balcony (there was a bigger terrace off the lobby but...

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
