Experience life like a local at Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong. Housed on the site of the former Joo Chiat Police Station, our boutique hotel is an interesting juxtaposition of modern architecture and a conservation building (former Joo Chiat Police Station), featuring a unique design inspired by the Peranakan culture, with everything from the art murals to the tiles in the 131 guestrooms paying homage to the neighbourhood. Unwind with a dip in the rooftop infinity pool overlooking the whole of Singapore's first heritage town as the sun slowly sets behind the Katong skyline. Amenities such as complimentary Wi-Fi, 24-hour fitness centre, self-service business centre and function room offer convenience for leisure and business travellers alike. Located in the former Joo Chiat Police Station is Baba Chews Bar and Eatery, our all-day neighbourhood café, serving up flavours from the Straits of Malacca and a line-up of quality coffee, tea and cocktails inspired by local flavours.

Located in my favorite part of the city, Katongo/Joo Chiat, with so many good eateries, hotel Indigo is heaven. Room decor in local, Perenakan style, good bed and bathroom. Nice to be in the room. Breakfast no less than exceptional. Plenty of choice including lots of local touches. Service so friendly and helpful. The roofgarden with a large swimmingpool and the most awesome, stunning view of the entire Singapore island is so hard to leave behind. A most fantastic place to enjoy a swim, relax under the equator sun and see sunrises and sunsets over the orange tile roofs of Katongo and the island. Beautiful. Tasteful decor right throughout the hotel. Will be back.

Very nice hotel to be in. It has a nice swimming pool and should look into making the room cooler, it looks a lil bit too vintagey. I love that there are games and all however can take into considerations other things.

Our first and definitely not the last visit to Baba Chew’s. Attended a family wedding in a quaint Peranakan Restaurant Katong. It was just warmly set up and cosy. Service was top notch. The Manager, Anne and her team was very hospitable and service was on par with 5 star Hotel Restaurant. Well done Anne! We will be back with our friends.

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night mid January en route from Myanmar back home to New Zealand. We picked what we thought looked like the nicest hotel closest to the Airport without having to venture into the downtown area. Both the hotel and the area were fabulous and much better than expected. The hotel is right next door to a big shopping Mall & immediately in front of the hotel are several restaurants. The hotels own restaurant Baba Chews is where we dined for Dinner and the atmosphere, service and food were excellent. Across the road is an immaculately restored block of shops and restaurants, the area is just gorgeous and we were disappointed we didn’t have time to explore. We stayed in a king bed deluxe room and it was fabulous. Tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and well designed. For the amount of floor space the layout was exceptionally roomy. We loved the little touches everywhere and the cool bathroom set up with the attractive vanity and shower behind it, unusual with the shower on the outside wall of the hotel. Just remember that as well as you seeing out, people can also see in to you! All features of the room worked well, from the quiet Air conditioning to the fast wifi. We ventured up to the rooftop to see the view and liked the look of the rooftop swimming pool but the weather wasn’t kind enough for us to fancy a swim! The biggest regret was having to leave and we look forward to returning sometime for a longer stay and a good look around the area as well as experiencing some more of the restaurants in the area.

This hotel is very lovely and the decor is a heritage Peranakan. Upon check-in we are greeted with a very welcoming smile at the reception by Ms Nani and Mr Denry. As we checkin we have to fill up the health declaration form due to the Convid-19 outbreak. We got a complimentary upgrade as we are celebrating our Anniversary without even asking. Rooms are very clean spacious and have a very cute bathtub like what i said the decor is peranakan LOVE IT 💋. I truly recommend the people out there to tryout this place there is lot’s of local food around at this hotel and the beast among all best is the friendly staff at the counter never fail to smile and greet you even they are wearing a mask. Thanks Ms Nani and Denry

The hotel is incredible. I had never stayed at an Indigo property, and I cannot wait to visit at another one. The decor is modern with traditional elements. The hotel has thought of every thoughtful touch. I don't want to ruin the surprises, but everywhere you look, there is an element of Peranakan culture or tradition from the foot wash tub to the candy treats. Ask the hotel to explain the room in full detail. The hotel is in the Katong area, which is near the airport. However, it's not in the central region of Singapore. Spend at least one night in Katong even if you want to stay in Central Singapore. The area is fantastic, and it's become a hipster-style neighborhood with incredible foodie destinations. The staff was helpful and gracious. The breakfast is yummy and extensive. The hotel is bookable using an annual IHG free night from the Chase IHG credit card. I can't say enough wonderful things about my stay. Thank you for making my stay so memorable.

The first impression was refreshing. You're greeted by a greenery wall and greenery around the property before entering. The main glass door of the lobby is not directly at the building entrance, giving it privacy and probably a nod to the traditional Peranakan house entrance, where it typically require a detour around a wall upon entering. The lobby was small and long but had Peranakan items around the area. There was the beautiful sets of rectangular carriers that resembled the Bakul Sia and had jars stacked up near the elevator. There were even side tables with Peranakan motifs at the front desk. What accompanied these beautiful decorations were the warmth and friendliness of the front desk staff. Check-in was smooth and the staff were helpful. They acceded to my request to change from a King Bed room to one with Twin Beds. My room view was of the courtyard between Hotel Indigo and another IHG property, the Holiday Inn Express. The room was decent-sized with the shower/makeup area taking up the back quarter of the room where the window was. The bathroom however, was separate at the front of the room. The room was dotted with Peranakan-inspired furniture and nostalgic items. There was a beautiful red sofa with a carrom board table with its own play pucks. The wall had a large mural and mine depicted a durian stall in operation. There was an antique-looking cabinet that encompasses the mini-fridge and minibar items. A French press came with the complimentary coffee sachets and TWG tea bags. There were several mugs and glasses for use in addition to the old-school coffee cups. They even provided complimentary candies in glass jars (including the white rabbit milk candy!). The shower area was separated by sliding doors and had Peranakan-styled floor tiles. The sink was on a table top that was placed on a re-purposed Singer sewing machine. The towels were placed on a low wooden stool with the spittoon beside it. There was a large old-school rope chair that was pretty comfortable. They even provided a metal bucket/tub for washing/soaking your feet and it came with the bath salts. The shower was hidden behind the sink area. Curtains and blinds were provided to ensure privacy during shower. The location of the hotel was superb as it was near a few small malls and had plenty of food establishments in the Katong area. It was also a 10-minute to 15-minute walking distance away to Parkway Parade, a large mall. Check-out was smooth and quick. It is a very good place to stay in for both tourists and locals alike.

I checked into Hotel Indigo Katong on 14th March 2020 to celebrate my 2nd anniversary with my partner. Upon arrival, due to the recent Covid19 Corona virus, we were asked to fill in a health declaration form before we are allowed to check in. Not long after checking in, there was a knock on our door and one of their staff actually delivered an anniversary cake to us which came to us as a surprise! We were staying in Room 1121, King Premier with Bathtub. The rooms were spacious, the toilet and showers were split into two different areas which was somewhat unique. There was a carrom table which allows us to have a game of carrom and the whole room was peranakan themed, exactly like how we see in the photos on their website. The bathtub faces the Katong neighbourhood and a sign to draw the curtains for your privacy if soaking in the tub was on the glass as it was two way. The staff was nice enough to allow us a late check out of 2pm because of our anniversary and we greatly appreciate it. Baba Chews was the restaurant where we had our breakfast and it was a nice local breakfast (nasi lemak, porridge, laksa yong tauhoo) and the usual toast and scramble eggs breakfast. They have lots of different breads available with cheese and different juices were also available. The rooftop infinity pool was also quite packed on a weekend sunday morning with many basking in the sunlight under a cool breeze. Overall, it was a good stay and I will not hesitate to return a second time.

My wife and I stayed here last year on a stop over from the UK to Australia. We came back this year for an 8 night stay. We were not disappointed. From the reception staff, to housekeeping, all very professional. Very happy and helpful. Nothing was too much. We had breakfast included and again the staff were great. The room was cleaned and presented well whilst we were at breakfast. It is located well for taxis and in future when the MRT station is finished. Will stay there again.

This was our fourth staycation at Hotel Indigo; the first in August 2017 followed by the second for Christmas in December of the same year. The third and fourth were also in August of 2018 and 2019 to watch the National Day Parade on a large screen while enjoying all the good food and kuih-kuih in the area. Obvious to say we absolutely love this ‘Peranakan’ themed hotel for the most part because we hail from Peranakan backgrounds and appreciate the thoughts, ideas, inspiration, knowledge and creativity that have gone into the development of this unique establishment, which has not only won our hearts over but has become our ‘home-away-from-home’. It was good to be met by familiar front office staff like Esther and Tuah (and Faris) who recognized my mother (this is important for an elderly person). The reservations manager was able to secure our favourite room on the fifteenth floor which is near the lift and convenient for my mother who requires the use of a wheelchair. The décor of the rooms are simply charming, with large black pencil-like sketches across the white wall depicting scenes reminiscent of my mother’s time, in stark contrast to the vibrant colours of the rest of the furniture and furnishings. The toilet is a separate cubicle as you enter the room, which works out well for us as there is a sink and a bidet which is convenient for my elderly mother to use. The main bathroom at the end of the room boasts a separate shower area (with rainforest and handheld options), an absolutely beautiful vanity top with a modern sink set atop an old fashioned Singer sewing machine (the type my aunt used to work on) with a large decorative mirror with amber lighting. Other old-school items include a colourful enamel basin, tray and pot, little wooden stools for the towels and wooden clogs on display (not for use). Both toilet and bathroom areas are adorned with beautiful Peranakan tiles floor-to-ceiling. If you choose the Premier Room – View with tub, you will get to enjoy soaking in a large free-standing round tub big enough for two with soaking salts, foot scrub and foot balm provided. With large floor-to-ceiling glass windows at the bathroom area, do remember to close the curtains/blinds when taking a shower or bath. There is a large paneled sliding door separating the bathroom from the bed and sitting area which makes the décor even more unique along with the lighted decorative boxed ceiling. In keeping with Peranakan tradition of loving all things bright and beautiful, the sofa/chairs, cushions, pouffe/stool, carpets, side tables and lamps are in brilliant attractive colours. Stunning! Even the large glass cabinet is a bright purple with a few pieces of traditional crockery for decoration. In here you will find a modern Nespresso machine (Premier Room) and TWG tea. There are pouches of decaffeinated coffee if you prefer along with a French Press. If you are a carom fan, you can use the game board (carom men and striker provided) to pass your time. Otherwise, the board doubles as a coffee table for you to enjoy your rice dumplings or traditional Nyonya kuih (cakes and delicacies) that can be bought from the stalls nearby. Buffet breakfast is served at Baba Chew’s Bar & Eatery – also beautifully decorated in Peranakan fashion yet looking totally modern and classy. You access the restaurant by walking through the gorgeous hotel lounge area and exiting through the glass doors to this standalone building. Juices, freshly baked French pastries, fresh fruits, yogurt, cereals, salad etc are from the buffet counters while several choices of main courses are from the menu with a daily option of alternating local favourites. The wait staff work really hard to get your hot breakfast options prepared and served along with freshly brewed coffee and teas so do be patient especially when the restaurant is busy. What is unique to me is that Baba Chew’s is set in the same building as the former Joo Chiat Police Station which is where I was once attached during my NPCC (National Police Cadet Corps) days. Both these names are connected to Mr Chew Joo Chiat (1857-19260), who was also known as the 'King of Katong'. From our favourite room I can also view my old school along Ceylon Road. How nostalgic is that! The rooftop infinity pool is quite sizeable and makes for a good view and a good swim. My only issue is that I hope the hotel management will look into installing grab bars in the toilet and shower area, not only for the convenience of elderly and/or handicapped but for the general safety of all guests, especially since the (lovely) floor tiles in the shower are rather smooth (licin). My mother is already looking forward to yet another stay in 2020. Congrats to a great team (including Prem) that made the stay so enjoyable and pleasant. And thank you Jennifer Vivian for your warm welcome and attention. This makes a lot of difference to me and my mother. I love the amenities at this hotel, the warmth and flexibility of the staff and the overall 'homeliness' of the environment.
