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!

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.

Can't fault the Vagabond Hotel. Staff have been the friendliest so far. Really helpful and efficient. Hotel room was clean and functional. Really love that this isn't a cookie cutter hotel. Some really nice touches with decor. Hand written personalised note was unexpected and sums up this hotel perfectly. If you're looking for a hotel around Bugis, look no further than this one!

Staycation”

I treated my girlfriend and myself to an evening at the Vagabond. We are both living in Singapore, but weren't entirely familiar with this area. It was located well, close enough to great food and drinks, but not caught up in any hustle and bustle. We were in awe from the moment we entered this hotel to the moment we left. The smaller details such as the tea selection or quality of bedding was equally as impressive as the grander details of the art, decor and atmosphere. Truly a magnificent stay - we were certainly not ready to leave. Though it was much more expensive than where I would typically stay, it was certainly worth it. Great memories were made, and I'm very thankful I chose this truly stunning Hotel.

Perfect hosts”

Hotel Vagabond have hit the nail on the head, with a perfect balance between guest attentiveness and respect of privacy. The staff were available and extremely polite but not over bearing, instead leaving discrete notes and calling to ask if we would like breakfast sent up before service closed when we didn't appear one morning. An interesting, eclectic, fun collection of art in various mediums and a gilt Indian luxury to the overall decor. High quality establishment to suit those who like a small boutique hotel experience. We'd definitely visit again. Furthermore, after leaving behind an item in the room, the housekeeping staff handed it in and front of house ensured that it was returned to me. Excellent integrity and customer service.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Inspired and quirky”

One of the nicest stays I have had in a long time - great to be in a setting where the staff are free and willing to engage with you and make your stay what YOU want it to be, not what it says in the handbook. The decoration is wonderful, the art exquisite, the rooms very comfortable (if only just big enough). The setting is convenient for Little India and Kampong Glam, but be ready for a humid 15 minute walk for the MRT of you want to visit anywhere else. It's different and well worth sampling. No pool or gym, but here are clubs nearby if you need that.

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

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!

Worth the money :) ”

Greeted by a friendly and welcoming bellman at the entrance of Vagabond. Hotel staffs were polite and very welcoming as well. Hotel room was well furnished and neat, with an array of mini bar items to delight in. Overall loved my stay there, would definitely return! :)

Comfortable & quirky stay”

Hotel Vagabond is such not your typical hotel, it exudes so much character. So glad my partner and I stayed here. It's modern, comfortable and clean. Service was exceptional.

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.

unpopular hotel location”

1. the room is clean 2. the room is tidy 3.the staffs are polite

i stayed in vagabond hotel for two night.This hotel is far away form the shopping area. Every time, when I told the taxi driver to go to vagabond hotel , the driver does not know where is it . He spent a lot of time to find the way to the hotel. I stayed in the hotel with a young child. But there are some KTV near the hotel, it is a bit noisy in night time. My option is that this hotel is not very suitable for a family with small kids to stay in ....
