    One of kind experience of a boutique hotel
    The service is great and I love the uniqueness of the design that preserves the architecture history of Singapore. A few notes, the rooms are extremely small and tight which is inconvenient because there is no space to open the big luggage. Second, the garden or exterior spot lights outside my room was too bright and it would be nice it they dimmer the exterior spot lights. There is also a nightclub in the neighbourhood that plays loud music past mid-night.

    Happy for a very brief period of time! Sad.
    I booked this place because I found the concept brilliant and the location fits it like a glove. I booked a better room and fortunate I did but still to my disappointment, it was not a room, it was a cubicle! The room space is way too small. It was so small that though I had made my reservation for 2 nights, I left after the 1st night as I couldn't take the space constraint and not even having a desk to work on. I am sure I am the minority of people not satisfied but all night long I could hear the sounds of pleasure from next door.

    Average stay
    It is my fault that didn’t check what kind of the room did I book. I never expect it was a women hostel..the room is not clean and I saw bugs here. Staff are helpful and nice.

    The Great Madras, Singapore
    The hotel is located in Little India area which is most comfortable for Indian tourists. The hotel is neat and clean and well maintained. However, the room size are very small compared to Indian hotels and that is a surprise while checking in. The hotel provides tea/coffee making, ironing board and iron facilities and breakfast with little variety but good enough. There are lot of Indian restaurants and facilities shop around the area and Mustafa Centre is also just a few minutes walk. The best part with hotel is its location and is around 200 steps away from MRT station, Rocher as well as local bus stop. The staff is courteous and professional. The hotel provides free wi-fi with amazing speed. Overall its a good value for money.
