Great service, decor and location”
Very friendly professional service. Beautiful quirky décor and in a great location for Little India, Downtown and Kampong Glam. Ask for their walking maps they are really good for discovering the city. Loved the hotel and will rebook next time I'm in Singapore
I like the design and the size of the room. Even the basic room feels large enough. The hotel is very well decorated and I find it very enjoyable being around Art. Not exactly near the MRT but still walking distance
Worth every penny”
Hotel Vagabond was hands down the best experience I've ever had with a boutique hotel. My husband and I were supremely satisfied with the room (so tastefully appointed) and the location. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is it's relative seclusion from most of the business/large hotels. But that in itself is its charm. We adored the homage to Kampong Glamour, we were impressed by the personalized service. During our stay, I had an unfortunate incident involving a dislocated shoulder (an old injury triggered), and the night manager Sarah went so far as to hold my hand while the doctors did their work. I cannot praise this hotel enough. If you are tired of business hotels, give Hotel Vagabond a shot. Savor your stay. We surely did.
5 star experience ”
A very well though hotel layout and design. Great attention to detail to cater the needs of its customer, location is great, near good food restos, bus stops and mrt station. The other amenities like the complimentary high tea and mobile phone is a big plus! Exceptional staffs and good food at the 5th quarter, over all its an extraordinary experience! Definitely would love to go back!
This is an honest, heartfelt home away from home..”
I stopped writing reviews when agoda stopped the free points....BUT I feel strongly about this little place. Last week I checked in and didnt get out of bed for almost 24 hours, the beds are that good. Then I was treated like a true guest for the next two days, everything I could have needed or wanted was cared for, hospitality like it was 'back in the day'! Dont go and stay in one of the lifeless false big names, stay somewhere the staff remember your name, and where the people care. The hotel itself is cosy, the standard rooms are quite small but no expense spared, real wood, serious beds, robes and linen.... Outside is awash with local street food and atmosphere, but close to everywhere central. Down sides, Im not a fan of some of the artworks and decoration, but, thats what makes it personal....the restaurant was closed for a rework (which shows theyre willing to change) but I was fed a wonderfull and free high tea...very unexpected and better than most Ive had. This is the first hotel in the last 60 that Ive bothered to review, a personal, private, home away from home....and a damn good place to stumble into a party!
Bohemian hotel in the beating heart of Singapore”
Just returned from a fantastic four day stay at the Vagabond: really an incredible experience at Singapore's number one getaway location. And they even had Citizen Kane and various art films on my TV (Kieszlowski too!); i watched them all! but it is really the superlative customer service that sets Vagabond apart from the crowd. The staff really go out of the way to make sure your every whim is fulfilled. I give the Vagabond my strongest recommendation.
Great for a private luxurious getaway”
The service was impeccable, and we adored the kitschy decor and the shared courtyard that came with our room. It's also in between Little India and Arab Street, so there are lots of dining, drinking, and entertainment options just a short walk away.
the hotel is really beautiful, the interiors is great and the artwork in the lift is really amazing. the service is top notch and the staff actually walk us around the hotel and introduce the rooms and afternoon tea time to us. The hospitality is amazing.
Great Boutique Hotel for Business Travel - if you don't mind a non Western Area”
Vagabond is a great boutique hotel. Rooms are small but they are well appointed and the styling is great. The location is good for someone who has spent a lot of time in Singapore and does not mind somewhere a bit different. It does not have the easy access to Western food as say Orchard or Clarke Quay, but for someone who wants to have a bit more of a local environment, it is great, with easy access to Little India and Arab street.
Great design, recommend for couples”
Love the design of the room. Staff are very nice and helpful. The whole environment inside is carefully designed as a piece of art. Great experience for couple to stay. It would be better if the wine bar opposite to the hotel could be more considerate to lower down the noise after midnight. But the helpful staff do help to switch the room if it is disturbing.
Its a lovely hotel in bugis”
Every corner is instagramable. Really friendly and helpful staff, the bellboy stood in the rain to get a taxi for me. downside: it is a good 15 mins walk from bugis mrt but there is lots of cafes along the way.
Brilliant Art Hotel”
How many reviews start with ....Our only regret is that we only stayed the one night! We just loved the Vagabond Hotel. Right from when our taxi pulled up in front of the hotel we were treated like very special guests and made to feel very much at home. This hotel is far from your ordinary generic all hotel rooms look alike brand. Check out their website for a glimpse of the fabulous decor. The rooms are small, but sumptuously decorated. The bed was super comfortable and the ensuite was spotless and very modern. Afternoon tea is served each day and is complimentary and the bar serves a staggering array of fine wines and delicious cocktails. The staff are exemplary in their endeavours to inform guests of all the delights Singapore and the local area have to offer. The artworks are innovative, surprising and intriguing. We consider the Vagabondto be one of the best boutique hotels we have ever stayed in and we shall return!
Great rooms, great decor, great service, great staff. Loved, loved, loved everything about this stay!! Absolutely one of the best experiences in a Hotel to date!! Thank you to the entire staff for your kindness.
Great find in Little India !”
Great,quirky,hotel.......all the red and gold,artwork and sculptures,knowledgeable staff,al a carte breakfast,high tea each afternoon included. As a couple it was a nice respite from the rigours of Singapore.
I knew going there that the place is in the category of "small luxury hotels", so we did not expect it to have the typical 5-star hotel amenities like a pool or gym. However, we did not know that we were in for a wonderful treat. Just 10 seconds after entering our room we noticed how it is resplendent with luxurious detail. The hotel has character. Breakfast is not buffet (if that's what you are expecting) but you do have a number of dishes to choose from. Hotel staff are wonderful - very friendly and accommodating. Location is good (near the Mustafa center) but a bit far from the MRT.
shocked at first”
I was shocked when I saw the building outside. The outside wall can be designed to inspire what is inside. Everything inside was good: the people, beds, showers, breakfast and has amazing art displays everywhere. I had an argument with the receptionist about the deposit and return period of 14 days. But the receptionist was good and managed me very well and I apologized to him later and he was very good then too and gave me the privilege as the customer; that was exceptional. Had very good sleep; the bed was magical.
Artful hotel with exceptional service”
We decided to make a last minute booking at Hotel Vagabond right after checking in our terrible Airbnb room in Chinatown. It was almost midnight and we were so annoyed and exhausted when we arrived there. But to our surprise as soon as we stepped in the lobby we feel so relaxed and comfortable. The hotel was new and very artfully designed. The staff was attentive and quick at checking us in. The complementary afternoon tea was great after a long day exploring the city in the summer heat. Will definitely come back again!
Amazing staff, hotel, service!”
The staff went above and beyond to give us interesting advice and help us out, and they were pleasantly chatty without being intrusive (we were on our honeymoon). They signed a card for us with a gift for our honeymoon that we found on the second day when coming home. There are a lot of art pieces around the hotel that really give it a fantastic atmosphere. Breakfast was amazing, and the hotel lending its guests a local smartphone was a great idea! Our room (the standard one) was very comfy, beautifully decorated and well designed. I'd recommend it to anyone!
Travel in style ”
A very nice and artistic place to stay while in Singapore. But what makes this hotel stand out is the friendliness of the staff. You really feel welcomed. They even offer a complimentary high tea to the guests.
Beautiful hotel, fabulous service, small rooms”
The design of this small boutique hotel is really beautiful - a lot of thought has gone into its inception. As I understand it, this is the owners' first hotel. I met one of them over afternoon tea and - quite apart from being very friendly - she was clearly passionate about their project and discussing small changes they were already making now they'd been open six months. The look is vivid and dramatic, a lot of gold and red, and I liked it a lot. For me the stand out thing was the service, all of the staff, but especially front of house (check in and the door man) were so so friendly and helpful, it really made the stay. The hotel is in Little India, an interesting and authentic neighbourhood. It felt like the owners were shooting for a "salon" type vibe in the restaurant/bar area (they mentioned they can turn all the chairs round to have film screenings for example) but it was always very quiet while I was there, which was a shame. I hope they manage to attract a crowd as they deserve to. My only quibble, and the reason I have given it 4 instead of 5 stars, is the room size. The room itself was very pretty, very nicely equipped, comfortable bed and nice linen. All the things you'd expect of an upscale boutique hotel. But it was very small for the price - a little claustrophobic. Small enough to knock my legs more than once on the bureau handle as I moved past the bed. Other than that, a lovely place with amazing staff.
