Expert review of Moon Hotel

Small and perfectly formed, Moon is a hotel without the frills and fuss.

The Moon Hotel is a friendly and cosy establishment situated in the heart of the traditional Singaporean enclave of Little India. There’s a trendy feel about this hotel, with an Ikea-like compact design.

Location: 

Little India is not for everyone’s taste. It’s a little rough around the edges, a raucous mix of backpacker hostels and spice stores – but why go for the boring, wanna-be Blader Runner skyline and corporate climes. Best make the most of Little India for all its rawness, before big business takes over. Nearest MRTs are Little India and Bugis.

Bedrooms: 

I’ve never come across a hotel that advertises rooms without windows before, but that’s what you’ll get if you go for the bargain basement here. The standard rooms are seriously tiny and the deluxe aren’t much better, but they are all equipped with iPod docking stations, flat screen TVs, LED lighting and bathrobes. There’s only one suite with a balcony and open bath.

Public areas: 

The lobby is light and modern with funky chairs and guests are treated to complimentary drinks each evening.

Eating and drinking: 

There’s a small lounge area next to lobby that serves complimentary breakfast and all day tea and coffee.

Service: 

The staff at the front desk were so helpful when I asked for directions around Little India. They were great too getting me a taxi during rush hour traffic on a Friday afternoon.

Who stays there: 

Business travellers with a tight budget, backpackers and low maintenance travellers.

Price advice: 

The rooms without a window might be cheaper, but for sanity’s sake, I’d get a room with an albeit, modest view. Best available rates can be found on the hotel website, while there are also favourable discounts and packages for locals wanting to have a ‘staycation’.

Pros: 
All rooms have basic mod cons
No fuss
Cons: 
Tiny rooms
