Stylish Singapore Hotel
We had two "stopover" stays at the Albert Court Hotel and would recommend it to anyone, we will certainly stay there again ourselves. On our first visit, en route to Auckland, NZ, we arrived in the late afternoon and were flying out in the early morning so we were there to sleep basically. We were upgraded to a family room in the new complex across the court from the main hotel. This was a large room was a king size ++ bed and a single too, the usual coffee making facilities, tv, great shower/bath/wc (needed that after the humidity of the city!), air-conditioning....all you would expect and bags of space. We had a peaceful, undisturbed sleep and the hotel ordered us a 6.00 a.m. taxi as promised (extra charge of $2.50 but the taxi then totalled $14, the same as the shuttle from the airport at $7 each). On our way home we had more time to enjoy the Albert Court Hotel and to explore Singapore. We had a room in the main hotel (very colonial in style, with friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere) and our bathroom had the most powerful power shower I have ever experienced. Again, all you would expect - tv, phone, coffee-making etc etc. and very comfortable beds with crisp cotton sheets. The buffet breakfast was great, with both local and European diets catered and attentive staff on hand to help. Lunch and dinner is also available although we didn't sample it. We spent the day exploring the city and we able to come and go to our room (for those power showers) whenever we liked and also able to check out at 4.00 p.m. as we had an evening flight.
Unique Quality: Late check out (4.00 p.m.) for those taking evening flights.
Colonial style but not fussy.
Free drink (I recommend the great lime cordial) on arrival or at sometime during your stay.
Close to Little India. MRT and bus stops very close by.
Above all the Albert Court Hotel felt like a hotel in Singapore with all the comforts of home, rather than one of those souless, corporate image places that could be anywhere in the world!
