Reviewed 29 October 2017

The front desk area / entrance of the hotel is very old school and you do wonder where have you come. Some of the Reception staff could definitely be more amiable. Leaving these two cons it all went uphill. Deluxe Rooms are modern, spacious and well equipped. On our first night we stayed on their first floor and had the view of a very pretty peacock statue from our room. We were fortunate not to get a room in the basement, blocked by another building as some of the other reviewers have commented. On our second night we were on a higher floor and the room was again very good with view of their front yard. Washroom with the bath tub was a little tired but spacious and functional.

Location wise it’s right next to Rochor MRT, minutes walking straight to Bugis Street. You cross LASSALE which is opposite Rochor MRT. Most of the other similar priced hotels in this area have small / tiny rooms. There are a lot of eateries / cafes right outside and within walking distance you have got excellent vegan / vegetarian options.If you are staying here and want to buy a sim card head directly to Bugis mall and you have all the major operators retail stores there. Some of the staff were friendly and helpful. I was facing problems with WIFI in our first room but surprisingly adjusting my position in the room itself helped to get good connectivity so those facing the same problem could just trying moving around.

We did not have any meals here.

Definitely a good choice for your stay.

Room Tip: ask for room in the main building, preferably on the higher floor newly renovated

Really expensive with what room size they offer and the services they give. Never changes the bed sheets after the second day. We had booked it for 6 nights. Really laziness shown in the cleanliness of the room. Can get a lot of hotels around them at a lot cheaper rate and with good services or of the same quality then why not to pay the other hotels for the same type of services as it would save your money too.

dear karansheth2017.
thank you for being a guest here recently. we apologize for the shortfalls you mentioned.
we're disappointed to read that the sheets were not changed. we take this very seriously and have spoken to the attendants about this. please note, the cleanliness of the hotel is one of our strong points so this should not happen. thank you for bringing this up. be assured this wont happen again.
we wish you a good day.

Stayed in village hotel Albert court for 6D/5N. Has taken 3 bed family room on level 2.

The stay was pleasant, breakfast catered for well for English and Indian taste buds.

Conveniently located from main attractions. I used UBER service for travelling around, which was excellent - would recommend to travel if you are family of four, as you can enjoy the sight seeing, which you would otherwise miss if travelling by MRT.

The hotel staff was excellent, specially keeping in mind that the morning breakfast service with high turnaround of hotel guests. The staff tried to cater for everyone's need the best they could - but it's difficult to please everyone at such a mad hour.

Overall - it was excellent stay and value for money!

Arrived early in the morning after a cruise and although check in wasn't due until 2pm, we upgraded to club and were in our room by 9:25am. The staff were friendly, professional and so helpful. The room was modern, spacious and very comfortable with tea/coffee facilities and free bottles of water. The huge bed was superb while the pillows were the best I've ever had the pleasure to use. Our room and the bathroom, with a full size bath, were immaculately clean. Breakfast was included and traditional 'Far East' style, delicious! The hotel is close to Rochor and Little India Metro Stations while the 'hop on, hop off' tour bus we used stopped at Little India. Bugis market is close by and there are restaurants just outside the hotel in the courtyard.The staff were lovely and we would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
