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.

Cheap Hotel

It has a nice decor. If you don't want a small room do not opt for the cheapest option which is the cabin room as its like a cell!!!

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.

Solid choice but not spectacular

Nice decor but a little too noisy especially as we were given a room right beside the terrace on the 2nd floor. I would have thought that having booked much earlier (2 months before hand), I would maybe get a quieter or higher level room. Room was reasonable clean. Not much frills. Wanted to get an extra towel but the receptionist seemed very unwilling to get us 1. Eventually agreed to but said that it will be delivered to the room but of course, that towel never did show up. Disappointed with this.

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.

Tiny Room

First off, no one helps you with the luggage (this is the first time for me), tiny elevator that could fit only 4 people. Room was super small 11-12sqm, I would recommends checking other websites first to check the room size first as the site does not includes the room size. Would not recommend for family with kids.

Value Hotel with plenty of character

Good colonial feel about the place. Great staff, Free Wifi, pretty quiet. Rooms are basic however. Safe & fridge worked fine. Big shower room. Once you realize where the place is and do not mind a bus or walk then the location is no problem. Food court opposite was great and plenty of restraunts. I would go again
