Immerse in the Local Culture

The Hotel

Stepping into the hotel, we were quickly attracted to the Peranakan furnishings and furniture, as well as the traditional Indian carvings and motifs, which gave an oriental twist to the colonial-style interior. With pastel-coloured wallpapers, warm lighting and spacious corridors, the hotel exudes an atmosphere of tranquility. By combining its pre-war heritage with a pervasive Straits Settlement Style and modern amenities, the Village Hotel Albert Court certainly offers elegant yet cosy rooms that guarantee a comfortable and quiet staycation.

With smooth wooden floors, beautiful surrounding greenery and curtains to separate the jacuzzi area from the rest of the hotel, the pools became our favourite place to lie back and soak all our worries away.

"We especially love the twin jacuzzi pools nestled at the back of the hotel!"

Your Room Choices

Deluxe and Superior Rooms

Oh how we loved the Deluxe room! We were immediately drawn towards the pair of arched windows almost stretching from floor to ceiling, which bathed the rest of the room in natural light. We kept the curtains mostly drawn back for most of the day, even during the night, and was promptly rewarded with the cozy feeling of waking up to the gentle morning sunlight slowly spreading across our room. Getting out of the extremely comfortable bed was difficult, though. With fluffy pillows and a soft quilt, we were tempted to continue sleeping for the rest of the day!

Besides the lovely queen-sized bed, the room’s Peranakan-colonial hybrid decorations conjured an atmosphere of stylish coziness. From the Straits Chinese-inspired motifs on the room’s wallpaper to the oriental patterns on the desk lamp, every object in the room contributed to the pervading theme of Singapore’s Anglo-Malayan heritage. The Deluxe room has a smaller variant, the Superior Room, which is perfect for a more cozy stay with your loved one.

Club Rooms

We couldn’t resist sighing in contentment once we entered the room – the soft lighting and plush king-sized bed clearly promised a relaxing stay! It was so difficult to get off the fluffy mattress, and we inadvertently spent the next morning just lazing in bed. The Peranakan touches to the interior decor of the room added to this sense of cozy comfort, enhanced by beautiful paintings and nature-inspired motifs. Besides the ever-so-enticing bed, we also enjoyed sinking into the equally comfortable couch where we got some reading done or dabbled with our phones.

Premier Rooms

If you really desire ample space for your stay, try the Premier Room! This large room has the same layout as the Superior and Deluxe Rooms, but with a lot more space. You can do what we did and sprawl your belongings all around the room!

Club Suite

Wanting to pamper yourself with the exclusive comforts of the Club Room, but on a much bigger scale? The hotel’s grandest room awaits: the Club Suite! Situated at the same section as the Club Rooms, the Club Suite has two separate rooms – the bedroom, with a luxurious king-sized bed, and the living room. Not only do you get the exclusive service of a hotel Club guest, but you’re also guaranteed earlier check-in or later check-out timings when you book direct. What’s more, the Club Suites open out to a picturesque corridor filled with lush green plants and gently flowing pools!

Stuff to do in the Hotel

From soaking in outdoor jacuzzis to relaxing in comfy armchairs at the Lobby Lounge, experience tranquility like no other.

  • Savour Sumptuous Food at the Albert Cafe

    Operating daily from 6.30am to 10.30pm, the Albert Cafe offers an exquisite range of both Western and Asian dishes. We highly recommend the Tenderloin Steak (medium-rare please) and the Chicken Fried Kway Teow, both of which left us paradoxically satisfied but also wanting for more! The cafe’s colonial-Peranakan furnishings also made our dining experience more rustic – it was lovely to enjoy our food amidst the quaint paintings hanging from every pillar.

  • People-Watch at the Lobby Lounge

    Seeking a quiet place for after-dinner drinks, yet reluctant to simply return to your room with a bottle of wine in hand? Check out the Lobby Lounge instead! The barkeep serves a wide array of excellent cocktails and there are snacks available to complement your drink. Besides sipping your beverage and immersing yourself in the pleasant ambience, you can also people-watch! The lounge is next to the Front Desk, making it easy to observe the streams of visitors moving in and out of the lobby. These moments of people-watching made for good breaks in between the many intimate conversations we had in the Lobby Lounge.

Ease Your Worries Away at the Twin Jacuzzi Pools

Tucked away in a corner of the hotel, the twin jacuzzi pools provide a soothing respite for both travellers and staycation-ers alike, either from the chaotic hecticness of work, or from a long day of city exploring. As each pool can sit up to four people, you can even strike up a pleasant conversation with fellow guests as you let the bubbling waters ease your tired muscles! We also loved how the jacuzzi area is demarcated from the rest of the hotel by curtains, which further amplify the atmosphere of relaxation and tranquility that the pools provide.

The jacuzzi pools quickly became our favourite spot to unwind! It was especially nice to soak in the warm water after a day of walking about the area,. For those who prefer a brief dip but still want some quiet time, there are a couple of chairs provided in the jacuzzi area (outside of the pools of course). We admittedly spent hours in the jacuzzi – from chatting with each other to cuddling at the chairs, this cosy enclave is the perfect bubble far from hectic work life!
