    Beautiful old building but noisy.
    Beautiful art deco styled hotel, only issue being that the windows have not been double glazed so rooms facing the street are very noisy, a local bar near by sounds like it is in your room and drunken singing continues to all hours and then you are woken early by garbage trucks, traffic and chatter. Pool is small but sufficient, could do with a clean. One afternoon pool was closed for a photoshoot 🤔

    Small and cozy with a great location
    The hotel looked quirky just like a boutique hotel should be. The room was small, but it was cozy and comfortable. The only downside was the bathroom, the toilet was situated right next to the shower, and by that I mean when you shower, the entire toilet area including the toilet paper will get wet! But that’s minor for me, service was also great, the staff were helpful! For the price, it was well worth it and would come back again.

    Comfortable in Little Ind
    New hotel with some teething problems, 1st room no hot water but quickly resolved by ops manager and receptionist moving us to another (larger) room.

    Happy for a very brief period of time! Sad.
    I booked this place because I found the concept brilliant and the location fits it like a glove. I booked a better room and fortunate I did but still to my disappointment, it was not a room, it was a cubicle! The room space is way too small. It was so small that though I had made my reservation for 2 nights, I left after the 1st night as I couldn't take the space constraint and not even having a desk to work on. I am sure I am the minority of people not satisfied but all night long I could hear the sounds of pleasure from next door.

    It is my fault that didn’t check what kind of the room did I book. I never expect it was a women hostel..the room is not clean and I saw bugs here. Staff are helpful and nice.

    The Great Madras, Singapore
    The hotel is located in Little India area which is most comfortable for Indian tourists. The hotel is neat and clean and well maintained. However, the room size are very small compared to Indian hotels and that is a surprise while checking in. The hotel provides tea/coffee making, ironing board and iron facilities and breakfast with little variety but good enough. There are lot of Indian restaurants and facilities shop around the area and Mustafa Centre is also just a few minutes walk. The best part with hotel is its location and is around 200 steps away from MRT station, Rocher as well as local bus stop. The staff is courteous and professional. The hotel provides free wi-fi with amazing speed. Overall its a good value for money.
