“Near MRT Chinatown”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

First time to stay in a hotel this part of Singapore. Not too easy to find this hotel along Mosque Road at night. Entrance and hallways are too dim. Room I had was quite small and had no toilet and bathroom partition though bed is comfortable. What I like is the location of this hotel because it is few steps away from MRT Chinatown station and restaurants and flea market are nearby as well. Had no problem walking late at night.

Room Tip: Not really cheap hotel in this part of Singapore.

Looking to stay in Chinatown? This is a good place.

Central to eating, shopping, nightlife, public transportation.

The room was clean and adequate, but super super small. And we didn't even get the smallest room. Wifi worked fine. There is a in-room safe, fridge with free water bottles, and typical amenities.

The Porcelain Hotel Singapore is gorgeous on the outside entrance & reception area also nice however rooms are disgustingly small. The Hotel is very over priced for what you get rooms are 9-12 sq m due to its expensive location would not ever book a Hotel again without checking room sizes prices are over the top for what your getting & nowhere to have a meal or drink??? On the upside the location is terrific walking distance to everything

Initially booked the Superior Twin room. Yes, the rooms are small, as stated on their website, so no shock horror. However upon arriving, the room was not clean and was occupied by insects coming through the wood work. The rooms are very darkly lit but modern and to their credit the use of space is very well designed.

After a lot of complaining and refusing to stay, we were eventually moved into the Premier room. A lot more spacious, compared to the standard twin. But it was quite obvious cleanliness is not the hotel's top priority.

It is rather a shame as the hotel is situated in the heart of China town and the Metro is very close , so the location is great. Therefore, if you are not so worried about space and cleanliness, then this is the place for you. If you are, then do spend the extra money and stay a little further out of town.

Staff were helpful and quick to resolve issues.

This hotel is situated in the hart of China Town. At arrival we were issued à room without à window which made you feel totaly locked up and claustrofobic,so we requested à room at the steet side with à window.
The staff were quite wiiling to honour our request.This room too,allthough clean and the bed being comfortable,was very narrow, not luxurieus at all. No chairs to sit on to relax in your room except to sit on the bed .
The bathroom and shower was goed and comforting after à humid day in the city.
A two night stay here is OK but I guess that this hotel is more for younger travellers.

Room Tip: Of you have a longer stay in this hotel, request à room with à window.

Very small single room but it did the trick.

My room was without any windows and pitch black-great to sleep in with jet lag but difficult to adjust and prep to go out and face the day...

Also despite the 150additional deposit if smoke in room,it didn't deter previous occupant-a real struggle to sleep/live in when couldn't clear the smoke smell out!

We were actually shocked by the size of the room while entering and then confused as to how and where to keep our things. Really really small room, rather I should say it felt as a 'box' rather than a room. The color code was a depressing combination of black and blue. However, the bed was large and comfortable, staff were nice and the hotel was strategically located....very near to the ChinaTown MRT and host of other shops and eateries..all within walking distance.
