The Scarlet is an attractive landmark in Singapore located in an ideal area - very close to Chinatown, Clarke Quay, Outram MRT and the famous Maxwell Foodcourt. I tend to stay in this area at another newer boutique hotel. Having hesitated in the past on staying at the Scarlet I thought this was the right time... unfortunately for me it... More

Stayed for a night as recommended by our gen x daughter. We arrived in the early AM after a flight from Paris. The helpful and charming front desk staff organised an early check in after a small wait, which was really appreciated. It's a hard one to rate. Yes the foyer is cool and the long hallways probably a tad... More

As always the Scarlet is very welcoming and is in such a good location in Chinatown. Our first room was a little small so we were moved to a larger verandah room which was very comfortable. We were disappointed that Breeze was being renovated as it is such a delightful place to sit and have a drink and look at... More

This boutique hotel is a great location, you have Chinatown down the road, mrts and lots of bars and restaurants. Check in was easy and room was very cute, love the romantic decor. We had a balcony which meant Street noise was a little noisy but you get used to it or wear ear plugs. Breakfast is in the next... More

My friend and I had a short break in SIngapore. We chose The Scarlet hotel and it was our good choice. The location of this hotel is perfect for the one who loves food because it is near a famous food center in SG, Maxwell. And also near Chinatown. The room is not too small, beautiful, clean and quite convenient.... More

Very good and friendly service better than many 5* hotels. Location is the best, near many good restaurant and Maxwell Food court. Our room was good a bit small but sufficient. We'll recommend our friend to stay here and will be back to The Scarlet.

For something different, try a small boutique hotel. The row of traditional shophouses has been converted into the Scarlet. I stayed for 6 nights. The room was small but lovely, staff were friendly and helpful, location is good. It is just a couple of minutes walk to the MRT station, food streets, etc and across the road from the Maxwell...

My wife celebrates her birthday with Singapore so we visited to share its 50th national day and couldn't have been more satisfied. From the moment we entered the elegant foyer, and were welcomed by professional but friendly young staff in beautiful uniforms before being introduced to our designer room, to the moment we left, we couldn't have asked for more....

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.
