We were on the first accommodation floor. Rooms were compact and the wet room was a hoot. We did get used to the early morning wake up call from the nearby temple. As others have said the breakfast was a bit basic but there is now a wonderful artisan bakery up the road with great pastries and even better coffee.... More

Singapore has a myriad of hotel, most more expensive than in many cities and dominated by international brands. In areas like Chinatown, there are several quirky classic boutique hotels in wonderfully restored historic buildings. My favourite is Hotel 1929. It is located in a beautifully restored historic row of 19th C buildings on Keong Saik Rd in the heart of... More

The hotel is located very well for many upmarket restaurants, casual cafes and bars . The reception were very helpful and kind enough in taking our luggage into storage and providing a room to shower and refresh after our long flight as our appointed room still had guests in.

Friendly staff, ingenious arrangement for making the most of cramped rooms but with a private balcony, cleanliness and breakfast prepared at the request of the staff, are among the highlights of the place has an undeniable charm and quiet location for nothing spoil ... by day the customers have a Jacuzzi on the terrace of sight.

Let me start by saying this is not a Marriott, Hilton, or any other type of bland chain. If that's what you want, they have them in Singapore also !

Getting a good deal on a Singapore hotel is not easy and I trawled through quite a few as I was booking this for my parents -- but I also spent a week there for work in March. The hotel is really well-located in Chinatown, which is full of old colonial architecture, boutiques, bars, and food halls and markets close... More

It was my first time to Singapore with my boyfriend and we stayed in the 'standard' room at 1929. Our room was very small though practical and clean. Great location with walking distance to China Town and hip and quirky Ann Siang Hill. There were lots of interesting boutiques and restaurants near by as well. Great place to stay if... More

This small hotel has four floors in an old building close to Chinatown. The rooms are mainly very small, except from two rooms at the far ends of each corridor. These are the so called "deluxe" rooms - definitely worthwhile to pay for! But also in these rooms the bathroom is very small - tiny - with a simple glass... More
