Occupying a beautifully restored building, the 35-room The Great Madras Boutique Hotel (formerly known as Madras Hotel a budget property that has been around in the backpacker quarters of Little India since the 1990s), is an ideal for travellers who appreciate a unique blend of tradition and modern amenities. The Great Madras Boutique Hotel is perfectly located in Little India which is one of Singapore’s most vibrant districts

From the get-go, The Great Madras doesn’t pretend that it’s a luxury hotel, because it is not. Its ambience much closer to a poshtel than the Four Seasons; more Darjeeling Express than the Tenenbaum House. There is a large lighted sign outside that draws you in, and as you get closer, you might notice the loud neon flamingo at the side of the building.

With its strategic location, The Great Madras is well-connected by public transportation such as Rochor and Little India MRT station and within close proximity to shopping districts such as Mustafa Centre, City Square Mall and Bugis.

Alternatively, take a 10 minute walk to the renowned Mustafa Centre, a known 24-hour shopping paradise in Little India that stock a colossal catalogue of items from electronics to jewellery to groceries all under one roof or take your pick of knick-knacks and souvenirs from open-air Tekka Centre, Little India Arcade or at shops along the way.

Our Muslim guest will be delighted to know that Abdul Gafoor Mosque is located two streets away behind The Great Madras. Guests can also find good bargains, high end shopping, art galleries and quirky local hotels at Dunlop Street, Campbell lane or even Perak Road, Halal and non-Halal artisan cafes or restaurant, in and around the hotel.

As night falls, the surrounding area takes on another persona to offer a vibrant array of nightlife and entertainment choices, all within walking distance.
