A great and unique room we stayed in the yellow room. Quirky and interesting decor and a very good central location It's such a shame the room was overlooking the main road as it was a little loud at night. The hotel did offer ear plugs to help. If you don't mind a little noise then it's a perfect boutique... More

Singapore is a “bucket list” destination. The city has a seemingly endless array of attractions and experiences to satisfy even the most jaded traveller. As a first time visitor I quickly learned that Singapore's appeal extends beyond Raffles Hotel, Orchard Road and the gargantuan Marina Bay Sands (with its infinity pool and observation deck). Little India, for example, is a... More

Stayed in the purple room for 1 night, and was pretty impressed by it. Even though the room was quite small in size for the price we paid, but we loved the design and enjoyed the overall experience! Their themed rooms were very special. We wanted to get the space room, but unfortunately it was booked for the night, but... More

Stayed at Wanderlust while at Singapore for a music festival. We booked here to be near our friends at Bunc hostel right behind it (which was fully booked) and also we preferred to have an ensuite bathroom. Check in was easy and good even though we arrived past midnight. We got the "Blue" room which gave us a right shock... More

Hi Elliealmeida, Many thanks for sharing your feedback of the Wanderlust Hotel. We do acknowledge that the Pantone Rooms may not be everyone's liking. As the hotel is located within a conservation building, we do try to maximise the space in each room with the Pantone Rooms stylised after capsule rooms. In each of our rooms at the Wanderlust, we...

We do acknowledge that our Pantone Rooms may be slightly more compact and that the beds on the floor may not be very convenient for pregnant ladies.

I stayed at this hotel two years ago and liked it enough to return despite the many offerings in Singapore. What I liked the first time around did not change -- cool area, interesting design, great service, really good breakfast, and convenient location. But I chose a Pantone room this time around and these are smaller, pod-like rooms. While the... More

Spent a night here and had a really good sleep. A warm welcome, a nice, clean, groovy, functional and decent-sized room for the price, a lovely breakfast served in a really cool breakfast area, and a good (not great) Wi-Fi connection. The shower in the room was certainly among the best ones I've had the pleasure to use during all... More

Nice hipster hotel, we had the space room, design wise very interesting but practically a little frustrating. The loft style bedroom requires you to navigate seriously steep stairs to get to and from the bed, which is particularly annoying if you have to go to the toilet in the middle of the night. Staff were friendly generally, however the calls... More

Hi Gus M, Many thanks for sharing about your recent stay with us.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Wanderlust in Little India draws madcap, curious voyagers to the old ethnic enclave. Made for guests with a sense of adventure, we invite you to walk the unconventional path where a radical hotel experience awaits.Its history began in the 1920s as the Hong Wen School, where the building at No 2 Dickson Road still retains its old-world charm with an unchanged façade. Situated 10 minutes from the cosmopolitan stretches of Orchard Road and the Central Business District; Wanderlust also offers door step access to a bustling, colourful street life. The four storey boutique hotel has 29 rooms. Just as no 2 rooms are identical, the same can be said for each floor in the hotel. It features the groundbreaking works of award-winning Singapore design agencies. Each agency was given full creative freedom to design an entire level in the hotel, resulting in four, different ‘in-your-face’ themes – ‘Industrial Glam’, ‘Eccentricity’, ‘Is It Just Black and White?‘ and ’Creature Comforts.’ ... more   less
