“Great quirky boutique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Well worth staying at.Staff were great & the restaurant is pretty good too. Our room was clean & comfortable with a massive bed laden with pillows & crisp white bedding & overlooked the pool. Its a short walk to Chinatown & just round the corner from Outram MTR station,easy to get anywhere.Lots of interesting reading in the foyer,staff were calm & friendly.The only downside was no bar & the restaurant charged $12 (singapore dollars) for a beer which normally retails around $5 or $6.
Would highly recommended & much nicer than a huge boring monolith of a hotel,of which there are many in Singapore.

Hi nicola k,

Greetings from New Majestic Hotel! Thank you for your kind compliment of our staff. It’s always good to know that they made your experience a memorable one; from the front desk to the room attendants.

While there is no bar in the hotel, we are in close proximity to Keong Saik Street peppered with hip and happening bars and restaurants. Nevertheless, the in-room mini bar is stocked with beers that retails around $5-$6. Should you require it to be restocked, our team will be happy to assist.

Thank you for your recommendation and do watch out for our newest hotel property closer to home for you in Sydney which is slated to be opened next year! We certainly look forward to welcoming you to our sunny shores again soon!

Cheers,
Lyndel Joyce

I spent 4 nights at the New Majestic Hotel in Singapore. Overall my experience was good. The hotel is located on a quiet street, it is clean, stylish and offers a great outdoor pool and small gym. Staff are helpful and friendly.

I did have some wifi speed issues as my room was a little far from the lobby, so make sure to ask for a room with decent wifi.

Also, if showering in the middle of the room isn't your thing, you might want to reconsider your booking.

Dear Tripandvisor,

Greetings from New Majestic Hotel!

Thank you for your time in writing this feedback for all of us here at Tripadvisor.

It is heartening to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you liked the services and facilities that we offer. Our team of staff are delighted to know that they have extended a service worthy of a mention.

We have taken note of your comment with regards to the wifi and are looking into alternatives to make it seamless for our guests to use.

Designed for the intrepid travelers who value unique hotel experiences, each of the 30 rooms is individually designed hence no two rooms are alike. Some rooms have a bath in the middle, which makes for a unique bathing experience while some have a private patio with an outdoor bath. We also have a more conservative bathroom area for some of the rooms. Having said that, we recognise that each guests will have their own take of the rooms.

Do watch out for our latest property that is currently in the works at your side of the world; Sydney!

Till then, safe travels!

Cheers!

We stayed here for my husbands birthday and loved it. We booked an Aqua room- spacious, light and with a huge, comfy bed. The gym is small but adequate and the pool a nice place to chill out. Breakfast was good, and the staff were pleasant and helpful.

We stayed 2 nights at the New Majestic after our booking at a nearby hotel was cancelled due to maintenance problems. We loved it. We had the "Fluid" room on the third floor which overlooked the pool. It had a large sitting area, very comfortable (sunken) bed, and fabulous shower. Staff were lovely to deal with and very helpful. Nice breakfast. The pool is not large but it was fantastic to cool off in at this time of year. There is also a gym but I was not energetic enough for that. Lovely Kiel toiletries. Nespresso in room.

The hotel is located in a great area with lots of restaurants and wine bars, and close to MRT and Chinatown.

We would happily stay there again.

Room Tip: Fluid Room was great - large and airy. Every room is designed by a different designer - different t...

Dear Lanny48

Thank you for your constructive feedback of your stay with us. We strive to ensure that all our guests have a fantastic time at New Majestic Hotel, and we are truly pleased to hear that your stay was no exception.

The Fluid room, designed by fashion designer, Wykidd Song, is soothing to the eyes with the lovely curves and calm colours. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed it! Being a boutique hotel with a total of only 30 rooms, it is an intimate setting where we get to pay closer attention to each guest's needs.

On behalf of the team, we look forward to welcome you back again to try the other rooms all brimming with character and personality.

Keep well and safe travels!

Kind Regards,
Lyndel Joyce

stayed in this nice ltitle hotel for 5n in a two-floor room overlooking the pool. plenty of "boutique" type quirks in this place. think of industrial lights, recycled furniture, plywood crates, etc. front desk staff were nice, the room was nicely laid out and the breakfast was good. room service was prompt. bathroom ran out of hot water easily, not enough of it to fill the bath. quite strange, given their room rates, i must say! internet was free, but logging in was not without hassles, fix they could fix the gateway page or get rid of the broken authentication arrangement altogether! location is quiet and convenient, near MRT. I almost feel like staying I would go back to this when in Singapore the next time, but I feel that for this rate I might find some other nice little hotel with plenty of hot water and a functional internet.

Hi urmsu888,

Greetings from sunny Singapore!
We appreciate you taking the time and acknowledging our services and facilities. It is always heartening to know that our team of staff extended a lovely service during your stay with us.

We are disappointed to hear about your comment on the water heater. Housed in a conservation building, we did face the challenge of balancing minimal alternations of the historical building while adding on new hardware to make our guests stay comfortable. Be rest assured that we are constantly finding alternatives to improve our product.

Nevertheless, we are glad to know that you found our location convenient. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again for a renewed experience.

Till then, safe travels.

Warm Regards,
Lyndel Joyce

The service was very good and the room was great! We stayed in the 'bath' room and the design / room interior was something different and we enjoyed it a lot! The hotel is situated close to public transport and within a very nice street in old China town. People that appreciate good design will enjoy staying at this quirky hotel! We had fun!

I stayed at the New Majestic Singapore at Christmas time 2013 for 2 weeks. This is a wonderful hotel. The room faced the road, on the top floor with a long narrow balcony. It was very modern with the bathroom cleverly placed within the room - separated by glass. Great location and very helpful staff.

Dear SydneyOrchestra,

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciate the unique design of our hotel and rooms.

Our balcony rooms give our guests a lovely corner to enjoy the quaint Bukit Pasoh Road. Measuring an average of 38 square metres, it is very spacious with an aquarium bathtub in the middle of the room to welcome the guests.

We defend our promise of high quality service and are pleased to hear you acknowledge that as well.

We hope you will be visiting Singapore again and give us another opportunity to extend our hospitality in our other uniquely designed rooms!

Kindly,
