This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.

"Tranquil in the City"
reviewed 1 week ago by Sid5515
Several times coming into Singapore, this is the first time I've chance to enter the mosque. Unlike big awesome mosque I've normally visit in many ASEAN big cities, Masjid Sultan is quite modest in size and design. In spite of its size, this mosque is quite active with many communal activity offered either to the residents or visitors. Its interior...
The Malay Heritage Centre is an excellent place to see a good representation of Malay culture and history - and how the Malays form an integral part of Singaporean society - covering all aspects of life. It is located near the Sultan Mosque. The Centre is housed in a beautiful building and set in a lovely designed garden.
Easy to Locate and was right opposite to my Hotel right at the junction. Its nice to know my native people built this structure almost half a century ago far away from their motherland.
A quick stop for this place is OK. Not too much to glorify.
"Nice gallery in Haji Lane for Japanese animation fans"
reviewed 22 July 2016 by LLoke
As a long time fan of Studio Ghibli, I was pleasantly surprised to come across the Polar Bear gallery by chance. It was a real highlight and experience to see actual hand-drawn movie prints. I would recommend this to anyone who appreciates Studio Ghibli's works.
It was quite nice to see the toys, books, things of our childhood days. Brought back many pleasant memories. Though it is a small place but it's crammed full of things. Admission is free. Do drop by for a visit to experience Singapore's past.
It was a wonderful place with lovely host. Great experience, host will goes through the dishes with you and tell you background of the staffs. It was really inspiring and motivate by how amazing the peoples there.
Went there with my wife to celebrate her birthday. Muhammad was very helpful in taking the booking via WhatsApp and arranging a surprise birthday dessert. Although they don’t serve alcoholic drinks we didn’t miss them and we can highly recommend the mocktails! We ordered the signature lobster pasta dish for two which was rich and tasty. The lava chocolate cake...
Start with a cheese and charcuterie platter. Don’t bother getting anything but the steak for mains with a serve of chips. Service is excellent, and the guys really know their stuff when it comes to wine.
My favourite place to have murtabak and biriyani. Gets crowded during lunch & dinner time and weekends. Rustic shop house just across the largest mosque in Singapore. Wide array of other Indian food as well.
Over all service was good considering the price I paid for. The deluxe room with kind size bed was spacious and clean, pool facing and has unblock sea view. Walking distance to the train station and shopping malls and a lot food choices. Value for money.
Nice hotel. Though rooms were quite smaller. But very comfortable bed. In the center of city everything is very near to visit. Low in budget.
Botique hotel you spend more u will get more in here. Bus stand is just opposite the hotel. Very convenient and relaxing.

My family stayed one night this hotel. The hotel was located beside Arab street, so there was good point to start Singapore trip, I think. We were 8 person and stayed 2 room, that's no problem. The room was a little small, but it was no uncomfortable to stay because of duplex type. We stayed comfortably.
We stayed in a deluxe room with a balcony. The room is small but very neat. Complete and clean toiletries. Every morning we can hear the sounds of birds on the balcony. Children are very much aware of the pool on the 4th floor. Strategic location, close to Indonesian cuisine restaurants and MRT stations.
Chose The Sultan by research and location to Gate 1 as I was able to walk to the Formula 1 track in less than 15 minutes. I booked a Sultan Room that was adequate in size with a functional bathroom not big but okay. A faulty fridge was replaced very quickly and I never experienced any noise issues from other...
