Travel Blogs from Singapore
Started today on Orchard Road, the prime shopping center in Singapore. However no shopping for me as I was just there to figure out where to check in for my bus to Melaka. I found it, though carrying my suitcase up a flight of stairs won't be fun.
Next I traveled to a wonderful new Singapore attraction - Gardens by the Bay. Located on …
Kampong Glam, named for the Glam tree, was the section of Singapore allocated to the Malays by Raffles. As the Dutch and British fought for control of trading through Singapore, they supported different brothers as Sultans of the area. The final decision gave Singapore and Malaya to the British and Indonesia to the Dutch. Raffles took control of …
Woke up this morning @ 6:00 listening to the Muslim call to prayer from the mosque a block over. It's a rhythmic chant that gets repeated throughout the day. I like listening to it.
After breakfast I joined a three-hour guided walking tour through Little India which was excellent! We walked up and down streets, stopping at a flower garland …
Arrived in Singapore before noon and took a shuttle to the Perak Hotel in Little India. The drive from the airport reminded me how unique much of Singapore really is -- wide boulevards, beautiful landscaping with trees and flowering plants everywhere, towering skyscrapers in interesting shapes and designs, very clean, well-marked with signs …
I flew the short distance from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore and checked into my hotel in the 'Little India' region before heading out on an evening walking tour. There was no pre-booking for the tour so I just turned up at the appointed place and time and hoped for the best. As it turned out, I was the only person who had turned up, so I got my own …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
L'hotel si trova in Little India, a metà strada tra le fermate NE7 (Little India) e EW12 (Bugis) della metropolitana. Una zona vivace, con diversi locali di tutti i tipi e ben servita. L'hotel è di buona qualità, tranquillo, pulito e il personale è gentile ed efficiente. La camera con bagno e A/C era confortevole e ben arredata, il costo (135 SGD con colazione) in linea con i prezzi della città.

Estoy de acuerdo con el "Independent": uno de los mejores hoteles económicos del mundo
Un bonito hotel en la zona hindú de Singapur.
Nuestra habitación estaba limpia, era cómoda y bonita, el personal era amable y servicial y por sólo 60 euros con desayuno.
En los alrededores encontrarás restaurantes, tiendas, una estación de metro y un centro comercial.
Además, este hotel lo recomienda el "Independent" como "uno de los mejores hoteles económicos del mundo" y ¡estoy de acuerdo con ellos!
As a middle-of-the-road hotel with a lovely local theme, it is definitely worth your buck. Not for the snotty and fussy who expect five-star facilities and cleanliness.
Ma femme et moi avons récemment passé 3 jours au Perak. Certes, les chambres sont un peu petites, mais assez propres. Les employés sont cordiaux et répondent à toutes vos questions du mieux qu'ils le peuvent. Les lits sont bien et les salles de bains aussi.
Le petit déjeuner est horrible mais c'est normal dans un hôtel de cette catégorie. Quartier un peu louche mais nombreux sites touristiques et magasins à proximité.
C'est un hôtel que je recommanderais aux voyageurs qui ont le goût de l'aventure et à ceux qui ne veulent pas dépenser trop.
My wife and I recently stayed 2 nights at the Perak. While the rooms were a bit small, they were quite clean. Staff was cordial and answered all questions to the best of their knowledge. Beds and bathroom were both adequate. Breakfast was woeful but apropos for this level of hotel. Location was a bit seedy but close to many attractions and shopping. I'd recommend this hotel for adventurous travelers and those on a budget.
I always travel alone. I was stay at Perak Hotel when I spend my vacations at Singapore on August and again on October this year. I fall in love this hotel at the first sign. Small room, not convenient for 2 persons but for only one it's really okay.
stayed in the standard twin room for two nights the room was clean but very small , it had small windows that couldnt be opened. it was hard to sleep as there was a lot of noise from outside. the breakfast was ok. as we were travelling around asia stayed in a few budget places i didnt really mind the small room my only real problem was the staff were not friendly the women that checked us in were more worried about the payment. i would only reccomend this if you are on a budget and are not planning to spend a lot of time in your room.
We, my husband & I, stayed at the Perak for 2 nights. Staff did seem unfriendly, but thawed quite a bit by the time we left. Location is good, in Little India, but quiet & peaceful inside & its great value for money. Breakfast was very limited, powdered milk & juice. Rooms are clean, but very claustrophobic, some of them with no windows & others with windows that cannot be opened. My husband has wheezing so he found it quite tough. I would only recommend you stay here if you want to be in Little India & if you are on a budget.
We have just spent the best holiday ever in Singapore/Malaysia. We left our Canadian friends in Malaysia and headed for Perak Hotel, Little India, where we stayed in a very clean and comfortable deluxe room for nearly 3 weeks. The staff were marvellous with the daily demands and requirements of the many foreign travellers in and out of this busy, friendly hotel. You only had to take the time to speak with the staff and they immediately responded. This family hotel is in an excellent location to get around Singapore easily whether walking, MRT, bus or taxi. The continental breakfast was more than we, and the other foreign guests, expected. Guests were provided with the ubiquitous continental breakfast - plus much more! The staff also prepared a local daily breakfast dish and local coffee - plus many additional "extras". Our Australian friends were immediately provided with Vegemite upon request. We were able to have traditional Scottish porridge - although we thought the local "porridge" was much nicer. Cheaper accommodation and backpacker dormitories are springing up in Little India, but they have no comparison to the friendly and charming Perak Hotel. PS: Excellent value for money.
We stayed for 3 nights in a claustrophobic "Deluxe" room. Although the hotel was well located and the rooms spotless and nicely decorated, we know, after having checked, that rooms of better value are available in the vicinity. Certain staff members may be friendly and helpful, but sadly the lady at reception we dealt with the most often had all the charm of a prison door. She seemed much more concerned with making sure we pay for our 3 nights up front rather than leading us to our room on arrival from our overseas flight. Breakfast highlights included powdered crystal "orange juice" and instant coffee. The place felt more like a recently upscaled backpackers hostel.
An oasis in busy Little India
value for money, very clean room and fresh bedlinens plus towels.
Good enough breakfast. Great to be so near Little India and also the shopping malls around. Most importantly, staff are very helpful and friendly.
