Really cool hotel in the awesome Little India area. The hotel has a really relaxed vibe. The place has a very modern feel despite being housed in an historic building. The rooms are very well thought out and have everything you would need. We appreciated the complimentary espresso and sparkling water available on the landing and the plunge pool after a hot day of sightseeing. We did not use the restaurant but it was full both nights we stayed. Very cool hotel! The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Hotel's Favourite
My family of five booked two rooms here and stayed for more than a week. The staff is helpful, warm, and accommodating. While not big, the rooms are well-designed so there is ample space even for many large suitcases. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet. The fully stocked kitchenette and free laundry in the facility worked out very well for a traveling family like ours. The location is great, within walking distance to sights in Little India and the MRT station and malls. We would highly recommend Wanderlust.

We stayed in a Premier room for seven nights and I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. It is very easy to reach from the airport using the MRT. The location is very central - close to Little India and Orchard road is easy to get to by foot or by bus. The staff are very accommodating. Our flight landed early in the morning and we were at the hotel at 9am. We left our bags in their storage room and went for a wander and returned just after 11am at which time Nicole at reception very kindly handed us our key to our room. The room is compact and has everything you need and more including a microwave and induction cooktop. We didn't cook but used the microwave to re-heat food and this helped prevent food wastage while dining out because we could bring home restaurant leftovers. There is also a coffee maker and washing machine/dryer for guests' use. We plan to return to Singapore later this year and have already booked our stay at the Wanderlust.

I'm an avid fan of Oakwood in the region and have a been a loyal customer for over 12 years now. Oakwood Thonglor in BKK has been a 2nd home on my work travels and so has the Oakwood in Mega Kuningan Jakarta. I find wanderlust to have a slightly different vibe and smaller rooms. But despite that, it's in a great, eclectic location with easy access to the rest of the city. Front desk service was great and very accommodating when I requested for a paid late check-out. Friendly and very helpful. The lobby bar staff felt a bit cold and impersonal, but that's endemic in (uptight) Singapore as it lacks the genuine warmth and friendliness in Bangkok and Jakarta and one can laugh easier with their wicked sense of humour... Free coffee adn sparkling water on the 2nd floor.. Bit of a trek but the free-flow sparkling water got me. The only gripe I have with the Loft suites are the threadbare towels. Any traveller would love lush, soft towels. When they're lightweight and thin, it feels like the shortcuts were taken at the wrong place. Lacks the size, huge balcony and location of Thonglor and the old school plushness of the suites in Mega Kuningan but it holds up extremely well against the other badly managed and somewhat unkempt 'boutique' hotels in the area, especially those on Purvis Street.

The hotel is located within walking distance from Jalan Besar MRT station. The room was clean and comfortable. There's a restaurant at the ground floor, but there are plenty of eateries outside the hotel too. It's in a nice location to explore Little India and Arab Street. Hotel staff were very nice and helpful.

I've stayed in a few hotels in Singapore in the last 3 years and I felt so happy I finally discovered Wanderlust. The room is not too big but smart designed, full equipped and well maintained. The staff is really friendly and the location is just perfect to go around. I am definitely a loyal customer now.
