      The rooms have to be inspected by the manager to verify everything is alright before the arrival of the customer. But that was not case at Great Madras.

      A pity staying at a Better Room ”
      A pity that a nice cozy room in a lovely hotel with enthusiastic staff is let down by choked drainage in its bathroom. A 5-min shower before heading off to bed flooded the whole bathroom and didn’t seem to drain off at all. I had to quickly tip toe through soapy water in order to towel myself off outside the bathroom. Since it was only for a night’s stay, it didn’t make sense to pack all my things and change room. However, it meant having to take an even shorter shower the next day to prevent a flood. The flood was there nonetheless, albeit a smaller one. Sadly, this soured my whole experience at the Great Madras and makes me wonder if it was really worth paying more to stay at The Better Room.

      Everything's nice and good, aesthetic wise - sweet. But rooms were too small, not enough space and we feel compact, plus our view from the window is the swimming pool, so we felt that we do not have privacy.

      Great Location and Pretty Interior”
      Stayed here for 1 night. Great location as it's near to Jalan Besar MRT station - you can travel to a lot of tourist attractions by taking the train nearby. Plenty of eateries, clubs, bars and convenient store. Love the interior of the hotel, it's cozy and retro-ish and pastel-ish. The pool is clean, though it's small but great spot for sun tanning too. The room is clean, huge bath tub can fits two people. Queen bed is comfortable. Complimentary breakfast is lack of choice but tasty! Down side - not suitable for babies or toddlers. It can be really noisy down the streets, people clubbing and got drunkard at night till 1-2 am. Overall it was a good stay and I will definitely return for a 1-2 nights escapade! 😀

      Trust me it’s not as great as it looks”
      Where do I start... first the good things. The staff at the hotel were friendly and they tried to help as much as they could. We had issues with our safety box so they offered to keep our valuables in the back of the front desk. The hotel look and feel is cute but that’s it. The cons that we experienced were a super loud neighborhood. There is a bar right across from the hotel that has live music every night. It’s awful, some of the singers sound like dogs howling... also random shouting and yelling on the streets. Trash trucks driving by banging. Also during our stay there was an issue with an alarm going off from the bar across the street. It was on all night until the next day afternoon and it happened again the next night as well. It’s not the hotels fault but it because our room was on the balcony it was so loud and made it hard to get a good nights sleep. I wish we stayed somewhere else.

      Very cool hotel. It was quiet and comfortable. My room was just as the pictures - very instagrammable. This wasn’t an issue for me, but I think it is worth noting that my room wasn’t cleaned every day - just on arrival and check out. I would definitely stay here again.

      Love the neon and retro theme of the hotel. Rooms are value for the dollars. Amenities are limited including its cafe selections. However, there are a lot of food places nearby. The location is close to mrt station and located at Madras St, its name speaks for itself! The staff are amazing, its manager and staff did a great job for a pleasant check-in and out of the hotel. They were polite and kept it professional. Reliable to help you with anything, including retrieving any lost or items left behind. Great experience personally! Recommend to stay at least once!

      We spent 6 nights in the newly opened "The Great Madras" and would like to thank Barkath and Muthu for their fantastic service and their flexibility. For the first couple of nights we booked a "balkony room", thenafter downgraded to a "good room" but could stay in the "balkony room". Asked for an iron, a minute later Muthu was kind enough to deliver it. Umbrella = the same. This is top service - thank you. Location: on weekends, if you have a room towards the street, it can be quite noisy. value for money: Singapore is pricy, everyone knows that. So during the week, we got nice price deals via booking platforms whereas on weekends it was over our budget. rooms are clean and provided eveything we needed. facilities: coffee/tea in the room, two type of showerheads, pool, washing machines, tapas restaurant, elevator.

      Cosy Little Stay”
      We booked the great suite for my husbands birthday staycation and it was worth it! The space was lovely in real life and the bathtub is massive. Pros: cosy, neat, surrounded by lots of cheap and great food places, and really near Little India so it’s a fantastic cultural place to explore as well at night. There is a fantastic restaurant at the lobby of hotel though breakfast was very basic (bread, cereal, eggs, fruits) so we went out to eat. Cons: it’s a boutique hotel so don’t expect a large swimming pool or other normal hotel amenities such as a spa. There is a service for laundry and dryer with a charge. Our room unfortunately did not come with a fridge which we would have liked for storing cold drinks in Singapore’s heat. We also did not find an iron but try to check with hotel staff if you are looking for one.
