The worst room, the worst staff, the worst service

When the taxi dropped me off at the Hotel at around 2:30 pm on a Monday morning, the doorman took out my 40 lb. bag from the taxi and left it there for me to drag it to the reception area, hoping he will come back to assit later, didn't really matter to me at first. Once I got my key, the receptionist showed me where the elevator was while looking at me like normal as I pull my own 40 lb bag and one backpack to the elevator which was 2 flight stairs up and around the corner. Is this a Hotel or Motel? And once I settled in my room, I noticed there was a kerosen like odor inside the room or coming from the hall way, not sure, so I went down and reported that, was told some one will look into it. So I left for the day. When I came back, the receptionist told me that they have refreshed my room and to let them know if I still smelled it, it was better but the smell was still there and there was other generator like noise coming from the closet too....I mean I felt like I'm in the back room of a machine shop or some sort, didn't bother going down, my time was preciousbing as I was there for only 2 nights. During my checkout, breakfast which was supposd to be served b/n 6:30-10:30, the lights weren't even turned ON by 6:40 am, and I don't even see a soul there preping. Not comfortable at all. Way too expen$ive for nothing really. Don't tell me location, please !!! I can walk the entire city within 8 hrs.

Good Value

I needed to spend a week on business in Singapore and was looking for a reasonably priced hotel in a good location. I came across Albert Court and read the on average good reviews. I was not disappointed. The hotel is relatively small - a kind of boutique hotel. I liked the personal touch. The staff was very friendly, the room (I booked the club room) was all I expected, and the breakfast, internet and laundry were included. Overall a very pleasant experience at reasonable price. I'll stay there again the next time.

Excellent Location and Value

I spent very litle time in the hotel, due to the compressed nature of my program, but my experience at the hotel was excellent; definitely a 4 star experience. The location is excellent. Right on Bukit Timah Road, there were plenty of buses to the NUS' Bukit Timah campus where I was visiting, for $1.30 per ride. For getting around to other places, it is only 4 minutes walk to Little India Metro station. And about 10 minutes walk to the 24hr Mustafa Shopping Centre in the heart of Little India, where I was able to shop at 2am. I am happy I chose this hotel.

Friendly and helpful service, relaxing accommodation.

This was our second visit to this hotel, and it did not disappoint - a welcome back bowl of fruit was a nice touch. There was a leak in the first room we were allocated following a downpour, we were moved as soon as we reported the fault and the room then closed for maintenance. During our stay the staff surprised me with a birthday cake (they noticed the date in my passport) over tea one afternoon. The courtyard rooms are very pleasant - quiet, relaxing and well equipped, there is an excellent coffee machine in the spacious lobby and nibbles are laid out for guests to enjoy late each afternoon. Between the main hotel building and the courtyard wing, there is a shaded outdoor area with tables and chairs. There is a gym, steam room and 2 hot tubs - all in working order. Laundry facilities are available for guests to use if required. The location is good for sightseeing, Little India MRT is just a short walk down the road making it easy to get to other areas of Singapore. We split our time on this visit between Albert Court and another hotel of supposedly similar ratings - in retrospect I wish we had booked our entire stay here, it was much the better overall experience.
