There are several Santa Grand hotels in Singapore. This one is a few doors away from another one. It is a tourist hotel, priced very reasonably. The location is excellent, just a two-minute walk from the metro. It is in the center of Chinatown, and convenient to everything in Singapore via the metro. The room was very small, but clean...

Santa Grand Lai Chun Yuen is a hotel with character. Its a 1888 Chinese opera house beautifully restored. Quite a break from the sterile hotel chains all over. Location is bang on , next to Pagoda St. Chinatown, Singapore. One entrance opens into the food street and the MRT station is barely a 2 minutes walk. Managed to walk with... More

Aircon unit just near to the door and bed was at another corner. Feel very warm. Aircon should shift new to bed so u can feel the cool. Maybe hotel can install a mini fridge in the room. The shower curtain is to cover the toliet bowel area look funny. Should cover the door for privaticy.

We stay here for two nights. Location of the hotel is very good. Just 2 minutes walk to mrt station and chinatown is a good place to stay.

Really different hotel which used to be an opera house so a cool lay out! We Liked our stay here as it is pretty central and right in the heart of Chinatown which we very much love, you can step out straight onto Smith street which is a real foodie place.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
