Don't ever leave the baggage at the front desk after checkout. I have lost my DVD player and no responsibility taken.

Please double check rates before checkin. I was told $180/day for family room and at checkout time they have collected $200/day.
I ended up paying $300 extra of my stay.

Hotel managemnt has taken very little responsibility.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Albert Court Hotel

Great value for the money!

from LikeDad
This hotel is situated in an ideal location, close to Bugis Street marketplace, and Little India. Taxi fare to the river is about SGD $5 (taxi fare to most places is cheap in Sing). The hotel itself is very clean, prompt service, and very courteous staff. We were 2 adults & 2 kids, so we stayed in a family room, which had one single bed, and one king bed - very comfy. Buffet breakfast was good too. Do not expect 5-star ambiance, but definitely a safe & clean place to stay when travelling with kids. Email me is you have any particular questions about travel to Sing, Bangkok, Hong Kong, India - we just returned from a 3 week holiday with our 9 yr old and 11 yr old.

Good quality for a reasonable price

from traveller1968
The Albert Court Hotel is on the edge of Little India - just a short walk from the subway station but not in the melee of the hectic shops and markets. It's a lively area that has more atmosphere than the more sterile Orchard Road area where a lot of the big chain hotels are located. The hotel itself is on a shopping courtyard with the reception, bar, restaurant and a high rise bit on one side and another two storey bit accross the courtyard, which is an outdoor public area with a few shops and cafes. Security is good however as the entrance in the courtyard area needs a room card to open. We stayed in this part, and specifically asked for a superior courtyard room as we had read in the other reviews that it was newer and the price was only a little higher than the cheaper rooms anyway. It cost about 120 Singapore dollars which is around 60 euros and it was definitely good value considering that the big names are all a lot more expensive. The quality was great - very new and comfortable rooms. The room was a reasonable size, the bathroom a little small, public areas very nice. We didn't have breakfast as it wasn't included in the room rate and was quite expensive. There are SO many food options in Singapore and all very good value - we ate fabulous food at the open air food markets each night, which I can't recommend highly enough (especially the satay - don't miss it!!).

A Bargain in Singapore

from A TripAdvisor Member
Having a limited budget on a trip to Hong Kong , Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.I was fearing the worst after my experience in so called "3 star" accommodation in KL.
I couldn't have been more surprised.
Having spent the night from hell on the overnight train from KL in a 1st Class sleeper!, I arrived in Singapore at 09.00 am virtually sleepless and in need of a shower.
The Albert Court was very easily located across from the Little India MTR Station and despite it being 10.00 am I was checked in immediately to one of the rooms in the new wing.The room compared favourably with any 4* I have stayed in with large bathroom,king size bed and noiseless air con.
with only one change of line to Orchard Road on the MTR it is by no means out of the way for central Singapore.
One of the bargains to be had in this city without doubt I paid $50.00 per night for single room.
Would def. go back.

nothing special

from A TripAdvisor Member
this hotel was OK but make sure you don't get a room facing the open courtyard in the middle, we spent the first night in this room and it was very noisy because of the restaurant in the courtyard. Anyway the next day we moved to a quieter room which was much bigger than original room. not bad location next to metro and was a reasonable price.

Great stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were quite spacious and very clean. The location of the hotel is great for exploring the city, not too far from a metro stop and lots to see in the vicinity.

Breakfast was OK, nothing spectacular. The gym was well used by my friend who said it was fine.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely return.

charm

Albert Court Hotel – Singapore

Positives & Negatives:
+Great location & style!
+We stayed in a courtyard room which are renovated shop fronts offering a unique style & charm. Our room was on the 1st floor with a view of the courtyard which is occupied by a number of shops & well attended restaurants. We thought our room was very spacious with a lovely firm king size bed, nice work table, sitting chair, room to stretch your legs, icy air conditioning & a nice bath to relax in.
+5minutes walk to Little India MRT station depending on the traffic light crossing.
+5 minutes walk from Tekka market which offers a myriad of Indian, Chinese, Malaysian style foods & more! I highly recommend having breakfast here for the vast choice & unbelievable prices. $2-3sgd for a main meal and $1.50 for a pint of freshly squeezed juice – we did not have any problem with bad bellys here or the service (we ate here 3 days straight). Tekka market seems very popular with the locals and is full of life & offers a glimpse into the daily lives of the locals. I can't believe some of the other reviewers ate breakfast at the hotel for 3 weeks without stepping out a few metres into the real world. Different strokes for different folks i guess.
+5 minutes walk to Sim Lim Square which is full of cameras, computers & anything electronic – make sure you bargain there! There are a couple of other malls in the same block to keep the girls in favor too.
+/- Staff were friendly but seemed a bit lackadaisical at times.

Did not like

from A TripAdvisor Member
This was my first trip to Singapore and I was going to stay for a week. I booked this hotel using Internet before I read the review to the guy fro LA, that stayed at the Hotel July 2005. During check in I asked for a room in the new wing, and got it. Had to pay extra because it was a larger room, that is OK. The service during check in was good. When I got to the room I got surprised! The room was on ground floor, the window was out to the hallway, and it really did smell bad. I had a feeling that the room was dirty! The next morning the drain in the sink did not work, I asked to get it fixed. I came back 8 hours later and it was still not fixed! But they got it fixed that night. The air-condition is making a lot of noise, much more than I have noticed other places.

Overall, I would not recommend anyone to stay here especially to that price!

However Singapore is a great city, and I moved Hotel after three days there!

Good location

from Dee12S
We enjoyed being in the Little India area rather than the glitz of Orchard Road. Close to MRT station and range of Indian restaurants. Room was on the ground floor, clean and modern. The shower was over a high bath so check your room if you have problems with this. Cooked breakfast wasn't very hot and the continental selection was modest. Tea and coffee facilities in the room but we had to go to the kitchen to get milk.

Great Hotel!

from rfpst1
I stayed at the Albert Court for three weeks during a business trip in July and August. I was given a lovely room in the new wing – king sized bed, large desk to work at, wireless internet service, and a large clean marble bathroom. The room had great air conditioning, coffee and tea service, and decent daily maid service. The new wing had the feel of a spa with beautiful foliage and water features as well as a comfortable lobby. Right below my room were incredible outdoor restaurants, one North Indian/Nepali and the other Indonesian that had delicious and very reasonably priced meals. I am vegetarian and the Indonesian restaurant was more than happy to cook me an assortment of meals that fit my diet (this was not a problem at the Indian/Nepali restaurant because most of thier dishes were already vegetarian). The hotel is located about three minutes from the Little India MRT station and is very convenient to the whole city; in fact, it was sometimes faster just to walk to my destination than to take the MRT. My only complaint would be regarding the breakfast buffet; since I was there fore three weeks, it became quite monotonous with the same dishes served everyday. On the other hand, I am sure that most guests don’t stay for three weeks, so this really should not be an issue. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great hotel at a great price.

We would stay here again

from Judith Whicker
We stayed at the Albert Court in June 2005. It was our first trip to Singapore, so we tried to choose a hotel that would be well located. We didn't realise how great the location was until we arrived. The hotel is right on the edge of Little India, and within walking distance of Orchard Road. We even walked to Raffles from the Albert Court, (but after a few slings we got a trishaw back!)

Our room was in the new wing, which has great water features. The room was clean and quite big, with a good sized bathroom. There was a shower and a bath. We had breakfast a few times, and it was quite good with a good choice of food and drinks. We had a few drinks in the bar, and it wasn't the greatest place for a drink, but it was ok.

Overall, we thought it was a charming hotel, and we would stay there again. It wasn't very expensive, so we didn't expect luxury, but it was certainly good value.

Top Local Tips for Singapore

OK if you have money to spend and like shopping if you enjoy being in an artificial bubble fine but Singapore caters for the very wealthy not the tourist.

SIA Hop-on bus Use this bus as a cheap way to get around the city. Get a copy of the schedule from the website or from the Singapore tourist information office. It is very cheap and takes you around all the interesting places, great if you have only 24 hours in this city like we did. If you book your hotel through the Singapore Airlines website I think the bus is free. For SA passengers there is a reduction in ticket price if you present your boarding pass, but I think you can still use it if you aren't a SA passenger.

Equinox Resturant, Stanford Swissotel This resturant is located 70 floors above the city. It is an excellent resturant for a special occasion as the food is wonderful and the view even better. Book however to get a table next to the window.
