So we stayed here for 4 days whilst finishing out honeymoon... set the scene. We're in a room on the first floor next to the lift shaft.... Right. Now let's set it properly... the lift is open air and covered in hanging baskets and a fish pond at the bottom.. it's very... quaint. The decor is amazing and the bedrooms are out of a sci-fi film... would highly recommend to anyone with any imagination. The hotel give you a phone to use for getting about. Internet. Sightseeing guides etc... and it's very handy. Little india is great... just watch the Sunday afternoons... they're a bit busy... and difficult to control the leering men of your new wife is tall and slim woth blonde hair and a large chest... let's just say indian men don't worry about staring... Wanderlust is great. Except the breakfasts... and the bars a bit pricy. Walk 20 yards and save yourself a lot of dollars... Would recommend as a good base. The mrt is about 50 yards away.

Stayed here for roughly a week. The room was a little cosy but everything was comfortable and clean. Shower had great pressure and the mattress was soft but firm. I hit a snag on the first day when I asked for a latte downstairs because they had a beautiful coffee machine behind the bar. Apparently, however, that machine is only a decoration and broke last year and they had tried to fix it but ended up giving up on it. They serve percolated coffee with horrible long life milk, so you're better off having the chai tea with your breakfast, it's a little on the sweet side but still enjoyable. Even though the coffee machine was busted, our room had one of those Nespresso pod machines that made up for it. Our first day breakfast was amazing, I had the eggs and avocado and was very pleased with the meal. The second day however, the chefs were different so for some reason the same meal came out different and I had to ask for what was missing from the previous day. The great thing about the hotel is it is located in little India and there is a wonderful Indian food restaurant about 100m to the right as you come out of the hotel. It's on the left hand side corner of the first intersection. If you go left past that Indian place and right at the next intersection, there's a 7/11. All in all, a comfortable stay, we liked the design with all the retro barber chairs and neon lights. The drink were decently priced and they had an acceptable range. I'd probably try another different place but I wouldn't recommend this place for a family, more for a couple's holiday

First - it needs signage - it's hard to find and does not look like the photo. It's entrance is directly opposite the Dickson Food Markets. We rang the hotel to confirm location - they were very helpful. The onboarding was quick and professional with the first impression of the hotel - from the foyer - was that it was new and done in cool industrial theme - concrete floors exposed interiors etc. We had a mono room done in a black and white style with quirky bathroom and toilet layout. This continued the unusual and quirky hotel fit out and decor. Room was clean and tidy and the bed was really comfortable. We ate in the food court across the street (on the corner) which was easy to sort out (don't order salad prawns unless you like fried prawns, mayo and fruit - a little weird). We left next morning before 6 am and they sorted the taxi and even made breakfast to go. All up - interesting and unusual hotel - helpful professional staff. Would stay there again. Not so sure about the name - sounds like short term love hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay in Wanderlust. The room was really nice with different lighting. However, the room was not really soundproof as we could hear "sound" from the room next to us. The bathroom design was pretty unique as well. In terms of pricing, it's not really cheap, but slightly higher than an average boutique hotel! It was a staycation for us. There were lots available to park right infront of the hotel as well, but make sure to put coupons! Will want to try out the other theme rooms in future!

We really enjoyed our stay in Wanderlust hotel. I wish I could take the bed home...it's so so comfy! The hotelroom was really nicely decorated and clean. Make sure to book a larger room (Mono room), it's definitely more spacious and worth the extra money. It's not cheap, but for Singapore standards it's not too expensive! We travel a lot and the price/quality ratio is very good. The breakfast is very good, you can choose a 'main dish' out of 4/5 dishes. Make sure to try the Laksa. There is also fresh fruit, toasts and cereals available. The hotel is very close to the metro station, a 3 minute walk. If we revisit Singapore, we will definitely stay here again!

In the bustle of Little India sits this jewel of a hotel. Each room I am told is meticulously designed. My room in particular had the bed up on a loft that you had to climb stairs to. And middle of the room say a bathtub. And kitsch design elements strewn all over this small boutique hotel. As a regular SPG traveller I was thrilled to see addition on another property in Starwood's till recently thin portfolio. The hotel is well located. 10 mins walk from Bugis Junction and Mustafa Center. 5 mins to Sim Lim. Orchard Street is a less than 10 min Uber ride away. Note that the hotel has no swimming pool but a large jacuzzi makes like a good place to soak away the city. This is a must visit for those looking out for hipster trendy place. But if you rather have a comfortable bed and other usual hotel amenities, this was a tad bit expensive at about US$200 / night. For less than that you will find other good standard hotels in the vicinity that is famous for cheap accommodations. Oh and yes look out for the hotel at the end of Dickson Road at the left. The signage for the property is close to non existent.

Accidents can happen everywhere but in this hotel I was very disappointed by how the staff and management responded to an emergency. At 4 am the water pipes in the hallway in front of my room broke and the hallway and my room were flooded. It was a big shock and a horrible experience, but about 30 min later a member of the staff stopped the flooding. He also told me it's the 3rd time this happened in a few months. I asked at front desk to be moved to another room but was told the hotel was fully booked. I returned to my room where I could not sleep because the water was still dripping, and there was no hot water in the shower as well. The next day it was impossible to rest since plumbers were working in front of my room making loud noises; the whole area in front of my room was wet, dirty and smelly. When I reported this to front desk, they offered to give me a 20% discount on the first night ("because I only missed 4 hours of sleep" they said). I found this offensive to be honest and asked for a free night and complimentary breakfast as a gesture to compensate for the lack of sleep and comfort. After being awake for 4 hours, I would have really appreciated to have a complimentary breakfast to feel at home in the hotel. The front desk agent did not let me talk to the manager, and refused to compensate with breakfast because the onsite restaurant is not operated by the hotel, she said. The lack of any understanding by the management and staff for the trouble and safety of their guests is appalling, and I strongly discourage anyone from staying at the Wanderlust hotel.

Went in w colleagues to try the set lunch - all got the Cauliflower tabouleh entre and duck confit main. Both were very nice ! Portions aren't too much as well. I did see a pretty large menu for the brunch at only 88++. Lunch was only 28++ for 2 course for good quality food 👌🏼chill ambiance, decor and atmosphere.

We liked this place very much: clean, modern, generous in case of complimentary (discount tickets, minibar drinks), centrally located, silent, friendly and helpful stuff, well located of foodcentres (chinese and Indian).

From the outside you may begin to scratch your head. Once inside you may begin to understand the concept. a fusball, an old hairdresser chair, a bar with a cold beer waiting for you! Well, if you expect a 5-star this is definetely not for you. If you want a and affordable place to sleep,relax and try something different enjoy the place. I stayed there for 2 nights. Rooms are clean and spacious. Don't expect conventional. Breakfst is not buffet but plentiful. Girls at the front desk are quite helpful for tips to move around the city, We asked for early check in (very early check in) we reserved 3 rooms and were able to get 2 before 10 am. Cool isn'it? Little India is not the prettiest of Singapore, but it is safe and has some night ambiance, 5 min walk to metro and bus stops few meters from hotel. Nice place to buy souvenirs at Rochur street just 5 minutes walk . Free wi-fi
