Gotta give a shout-out to the fantastic team at Hotel 1929. They go above and beyond to turn a budget-priced (for Singapore) hotel into a luxury experience. I've stayed in many hotels in my time, and something always seems to go wrong during the stay. During our time at Hotel 1929, we had trouble with the safe in the room as well as the tv. The staff attended to these problems quickly and effectively, minimizing the inconvenience. I could actually list several ways in which Hotel 1929 employees went above and beyond for us. Suffice it to say, they made our stay in Singapore stress-free.
The room we stayed in was not all that small (then again, I come from NYC, where "studio apartment" is code for "cubbyhole"). We were easily able to store our large suitcases underneath the bed. WiFi is free and fast, and we had no problems accessing the internet during the trip.
Downsides? Housekeeping was pretty sparing with the bath gel. I had to use less than usual so that there would be some left over for my wife's shower. Also, our key cards kept breaking, and the staff insisted that both cards had to be fixed at the same time. These were minor inconveniences.
To sum up, I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Singapore.
