Experience a heritage stay at the 4-story Kam Leng Hotel by JL Asia situated along Jalan Besar. Each of the 70 rooms is designed in "Peranakan" style with comfort in an affordable price. It is conveniently located near Singapore's Ethnic District - Little India, Central Business District, City Square Mall at Farrer Park and 24hrs Shopping Complex - Mustafa Centre. The hotel is in the centre of Farrer Park, Boon Keng & Lavender MRT stations, and takes only 10 minutes walking distance from each of the station to the hotel. Opposite the hotel there's a bus stop that can take one to the city area (City Hall, Suntec, Orchard) and to China Town. Lavender Food Square is just across the street to enjoy local eateries. The hotel has no smoking policy.

Good hotel ambiance but poor costumer service

My wife and I and my 11 month old child checked in for one night stay. When we checked in, it was pleasant, but when Intried calling the front desk to request an extra towel for my son, there was no response. I tried many times to call downstairs but no answer. I hoped that their service would be better. Later on when We checked out, I literally had to insist that the front desk personnel call us a taxi. He was telling me to just hail a cab outside, when I was outside looking for a cab, none stopped. It was a total waste of 10 minutes of my time. Then I came back to tell him to just call us a taxi. Let's hope they can be better at costumer service.

Great budget hotel

This is a great budget hotel (clean, safe, right across the street from a hawker centre). The only real drawbacks are that 1) the room has no real window, just shutters that cannot open and 2) the bathroom is separated from the room by obscure glass and not a wall. However, the shuttered windows provided plenty of natural light and the obscure glass provided enough privacy for two people to be comfortable.

Good for budget concious travellers.

Despite the building being old, where one can hear people talking in the corridors, the room is very clean and the our stay was comfortable. The complimentary internet connection is very fast and the location is good for those taking the bus and MRT. The safe provided took care of our passports and valuables. Water pressure and water temperature for the shower is quite ok. The TV provided is quite big though we did not have much use for it since we were always tired arriving at the hotel. For the budget conscious who just want a place to sleep for the night and sleep soundly, this hotel is much recommended.

unique late 1930s style

The atmosphere of the place gave the historical feel with modern facilities. Trouble had been taken to retain some of the furniture and features relating to the 1930-40s. Clean and neat & room with good bed and clean sheets. The room was quite small with no wardrobe or cupboard.. We stayed in the room facing the busy road, hence can be quite noisy, despite being in the third floor. the back rooms were obviously quite popular. Complimentary water bottles and coffee/tea making facility in the room was good.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The 24 hours food court opposite the hotel convenient. For vegetarians, short walk along Jalan Besar you will find a Chinese vegetarian restaurant.. Kitchner Road, has two Chinese vegetarian. Little India which is close by has many eateries, which would suit many

very poor, basic and low class accomodation

We stayed at this low class "Hotel" last month. the location is bad as it is surrounded by Industerial area, during the night and the evening it's not nice to walk around. The "hotel" is very very basic, and the water from the bathroom us running to the room during taking a shower, windows are not closed properly, and the staff dosent care about that. I will not reccomend this place at all !!!

Budget accommodation

The room decor was basic but clean. There were no carpets but slippers were provided. The bed was extremely comfortable and all linen and towels were very crisp and clean. The tea and coffee facilities and complimentary bottles of water were replenished daily and the room had a small fridge. There was air conditioning. The only negatives were very little storage space in the form of drawers and no wardrobe. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were shops and food courts within easy walking distance and the MRT was only a five minute walk away. We will stay here again on a stopover.

The hawker foodcourts offer great value for money for both food and drink and most are frequented by the local population which is recommendation in itself.

ok stay at kam leng

get a superior room only. standard rooms are dark closets. hotel tries for retro funky. succeeds in public spaces. rooms though, give off an institutional vibe, like a refurbished (mental) hospital or correctional facility. not a problem for a short stay. hotel is close(r) to airport than most and a bit far from the action. if we went to singapore again, would try to score a hotel in the chinatown or bugis area. overall Kam Leng is pretty good value for money (for singapore).
