5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A recent trip to Singapore had me staying again in and around Chinatown. This visit I chose The Scarlet in Erskine Rd, close to club central, Club St, the boutique Chinatown hotels with character and a 5 min walk to the closest MRT station. A boy, was The Scarlet a great hotel. It was vibrant, colourful and chic. Colours dazzled... More

I stayed at Scarlet Hotel for few times, this time I stayed at room with balcony, its more spacious than standard room. Its very nice after renovated, however, its quite noisy as the room face to the street and car park. Excellent Service and friendly staff.

Nice, special hotel. Like others say, do take an executive room, worth the money. Good location, middle of Chinatown, but pretty calm. Excellent service, very helpful concierge. What could improve though is breakfast. That was not up to standard.

This is around my 8th stay at the Scarlet since 2009, so obviously I was a fan. The hotel underwent a "renovation" in the past year or so, so I was excited to return. The renovation is mainly a touch up, with items such as carpet, wallpaper, and AC being updated according to the hotel staff. Things other than decor... More

I liked interesting, stylish and unusual interior in the vintage building of architecture heritage. I have never been in the hotels like the the Scarlet. I had some strange and surrealistic feelings when firstly entered its corridors. It's only steps away from historical temples as Buddha Tooth Relic, Sri Marriaman and Mosque. The City Gallery and Red Dot Museum are... More

I booked this hotel mainly due to its location. Its close to Chinatown, some nice bars, great food, and a MRT. The service was amazing, the hotel looked really nice and the rooms were okay. The bed was extremely comfortable, but the room was a bit small with all of my luggage. The skylight was kind of annoying since the... More

Great staff who went out of their way to make me comfortable and provide me with information and assistance at every turn. Comfortable room with all the amenities. Convenient location from which I could walk anywhere I wanted. And when I left I felt like I had not stayed long enough! What else could one wish for in a hotel?

Exceptional location for an exceptional hotel with superior service! Breakfast offerings were excellent and beautifully presented . We were able to walk to Chinatown during Chinese New Year and take advantage of all the activities offered in this area. A short walk to a section of very diverse restaurants was a bonus.

I purposefully chose this hotel for a business trip to Singapore and was not disappointed! It has a great location and the staff are brilliant! The rooftop bar and restaurant makes for a refreshing change and the you really have everything you would need here. Would definitely pick this again over larger hotel options in the city!

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.
