Staff were very helpful and pleasant and the room comfortable, better than I thought it would be. Only issue is the breakfast, (orange cordial is not a replacement for orange juice and the steamed eggs need to stay in the packet from where they originated from). It should not be that difficult to have a good basic breakfast.

I felt like a sultan when I arrived in the hotel. Everybody (including cleaning people) really knows how to make you feel home. In the welcoming letter they are talking about family and this is the feeling they create, being home. I was two days in the hotel with a flu and fever and the staff was taking care of...

The Sultan hotel is recently renovated and is a quaint boutique hotel in the heart of Singapore. Its about 10min from all major attractions and theres a taxi stand outside the hotel. So very convenient. Rooms are small but some nice touches like the mobile that you can use for local calls in the city. Staff are friendly but not...

The hotel was different, but nice. There were a couple of things that were not good......... the street noise and the wake up every morning at 5 by shouting of prayers. I am a Christian and I don't put down any bodys religion, but I didn't like being woke up so early. All in all, it was good

It turned out to be an excellent choice for us. Very friendly staff, great room etc. so close to so many good...

I booked 2 Puteri rooms for 4 people from The Sultan directly from their website. 3 days before my stay, the receptionist called to inform that we got a free upgrade to the Sultan Loft (biggest rooms in the hotel)! Definitely a good news to hear! When we reached the hotel, we asked for a late check out and they...

I stayed here with family for 5 days. Everything in the room was great, it was just the room that pretty small for me. The services was excellent and for the breakfast, it was just delicious but not really vary from day to day. The location itself was great, near bus stop, convinent stores, and many restaurants around.

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
