Having spent two nights in the unlisted collection's other hotel (New Majestic) we decided to try Wanderlust for our final night in Singapore. It's located in Little India... very lively location but also very noisy and the road (Dickinson Road) Is quite dirty for singapore standards. Our room, Origami, overlooked the side street where a restaurant has tables and people eat pretty much at any time so it's a bit noisy. Moreover, on our floor for about 4 hours (7pm until 11pm) a group of local fashionistas had a party, which ended up finally with hotel security removing them. Yet the noise was pretty unbearable and we (and other guests) had to complain many times. The room is nicely designed and very spacious, and has all comforts including safe, nespresso machine and complimentary drinks in the fridge yet the lights are 'mood lights' and are only green/yellow/pink etc so if you need to pack in the evening it's though.
The bathroom is very spacious yet the sink is by the bed which is stupid - as you keep dripping on the wooden floor> Moreover the side shower is so badly designed that in 3 minutes we had it running, we flooded the corridor, as there's a massive gap under the bathroom glass door... badly put together! Loved the reception area and the bar, the outdoor small but comfortable jacuzzi pool and sun loungers, and the breakfast which was nice and had a good variety of french inspire food.

Made for guests with a sense of adventure, we invite you to walk the unconventional path where a radical hotel experience awaits.Its history began in the 1920s as the Hong Wen School, where the building at No 2 Dickson Road still retains its old-world charm with an unchanged façade. Situated 10 minutes from the cosmopolitan stretches of Orchard Road and the Central Business District; Wanderlust also offers door step access to a bustling, colourful street life. The four storey boutique hotel has 29 rooms. Just as no 2 rooms are identical, the same can be said for each floor in the hotel. It features the groundbreaking works of award-winning Singapore design agencies. Each agency was given full creative freedom to design an entire level in the hotel, resulting in four, different ‘in-your-face’ themes – ‘Industrial Glam’, ‘Eccentricity’, ‘Is It Just Black and White?‘ and ’Creature Comforts.’ ... more less
