Stayed here for two nights in February after business trip, and wanting an authentic downtown experience of Singapore. Great convenient location, just around the corner from the MRT, plenty of bus services at the end of the street, and an easy walk to Clarke Quay. The food is great (it's Chinatown, of course) and there are literally dozens eateries of... More

Nice little place amidst all the busyness of China town, great location! Very close to the metro underground which we found most useful. The receptionist was lovely and helpful. Room was a decent enough size. Would recommend for anyone wanting to be in good area and who likes local food.

Stayed in this hotel from 31st Jan to 2nd February. On 1st February, I kept scratching my right arm upon waking up. Legs were fine as I slept with long pants. But the short sleeve tee didn't cover my arms. It started with few red rashes. Got worse in the evening. On the night of 1st February, I couldn't sleep... More

The location is in the middle of Chinatown.. very convenient and walking distance to the mrt and people's park. Lots of reasonable eats. The hotel itself is quaint with peranakan motifs. It looks a bit small but there are many rooms. Do bear in mind there are no lifts so be mindful of big luggages. And there is free wifi... More

The location of the hotel was excellent, just a few metres away from Chinatown shopping, Chinatown hawker food centre and the Chinatown MRT. The hotel room was small but clean and nicely decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful, gave great recommendations on food places. The only drawback was it had no elevator and our room was on the 3rd... More

I loved the location of the hotel as it was in the heart of Chinatown and very close to the metro station. The rooms were quite small, but very clean and air conditioned. The service was good and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It is a good place to use as a crash pad at the end of... More

This is a cheap hotel. The rooms are small; there is no elevator. So simply, it's not for everyone. However! It's easy to get to; close to MRT. It's in an interesting part of town; there's fantastic food nearby (head to the markets for a cheap local breakfast!). It has a great little attitude to the place - on old... More

A small hotel in the heart of Chinatown with easy access to the Metro System and close to Downtown and the Bay area. Room basic but clean. Staff friendly and helpful, but rooms noisy I.e.noise form within the hotel, not outside.

This shop-house mid-budget hotel is beautifully decorated with traditional Chinese motives starting from the lobby & Reception area, along the staircases and into guest rooms. It's strategically located in the heart of Chinatown, surrounded by many mouth watering Chinese & local restaurants/ cafes/ food courts. It's simply convenient as very near to the train/ MRT stations & bus stops. I... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
