The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's easy to walk around Chinatown & the Chinatown train station is close by. The staff are super friendly and the interior is really cool. The rooms are great and in good condition except that they are super small. We had a superior double room which I would only recommend if... More

The hotel rooms in front are a bit better. But considering the price range, this one is very positive. Clean..5 min from MRT (metro). There is a Hindu temple in front, but we did rather hear this funny little birdie (a bit like a djungle bird would sound...didnt see it) then tje temple....service very (!) polite and the breakfast nice....

I wanted 1929 to be great. I had seen it from the outside and read many reviews.......it looked good.... It was not. Having stayed in several boutique hotels for business I know to expect compact and creative. 1929 is ridiculously small. Number 1 problem is that the toilet is under the shower in a cubicle not big enough for the... More

I booked hotel 1929 having high expectations, judging from the exterior of the hotel and warm friendly welcome from front desk. Front desk officers were professional, polite and very helpful in customer resolution. I booked the superior double, even though travelling alone, thinking it wouldn't be as small as i thought it would as they offered a superior single. That... More

The hotel wasn't hard to find. The exterior of the hotel is very nostalgic. The staff was very courteous, helpful, and accommodating. The hotel is very clean and orderly. It is located near 2 MRT stations (Outram Park and Chinatown) and the bus station. There are a lot of restaurants nearby. It's just a block away from the famous Chinatown... More

Well located hotel in China town. Smalls rooms but for the price it is a good deal. I recommend this hotel for business or couples with limited budget. This is a goos option if you are in Singapore and you will spend time outside of the hotel. Breakfast is limited but enough for the price.

I really wanted to like this place. The staff is the saving grace. Super efficient and helpful. However, room 207 seems constantly of food being cooked. I scratched all night on the bed. Don't know if it's bugs or something. Too bad.

Good location and great service from the staff. Nice breakfast served. But rather small for a family of 4 but good for couples. Parking is a bit hard as there's only road side parking available. Lots of food and activity around the neighbourhood.

Location is great, right on the fringe of Chinatown. Staff were very nice, helpful & friendly, always offering advice. Our room (on level 3) was at the front of the hotel and was (least to say) very compact ... however it was also functional, albeit tight if you have larger than normal luggage .. that doesn't fit under the bed,...
