If you pay just 20$ extra you can get a nice 4 star hotel next to the city hall or in china town!

The room in this hotel was so small, that you couldn't even fall down :) there was no place to put a suitcase and we were 2. The shower head in the bathroom was just above the toilet! The hotel is really overpriced!

The Porcelain Hotel addressed at 48 Mosque Street, Singapore.
The hotel is located in China town, the hotel is quite good condition and fairly well located, ideal for travelers who are not concerned with luxury.
Building and the rooms are very well maintained, although the room was small but very clean and comfortable to stay overnight.

Stayed in the Hotel for 6 nights. Chose the standard room with queen bed. The room was small but it was very clean. The beds and linens were very comfortable and clean to. Very few stations on the television though. The best part about the hotel is its location in China Town. Lots of eating places nearby and the MRT, bus stop is nearby. This is a great hotel and totally value for money.

Room Tip: If you are on a leisure trip dont choose standard room. They are very small.

The positives:-
1. Barely 100m away from the Chinatown MRT, which makes commuting very easy. The coming fr the airport is also equally easy via the MRT.
2. Staying in Chinatown is like immersing in the local culture. The noise, the smell, and the sight blows u away.
3. The nearby Chinatown mall provides all the local groceries that you need. Everything is within reach.

The negative
1. I was given a windowless room, 1st time in the 5 trips staying here, and it is really like a dungeon, stuffy and dark.
2. It seems that 20% of the rooms are like that.


For my next return in Feb 2014, I wanted to book and prepay for a window room. Strangely, the manager replied me that I could pay up to 3 mths ahead, but the assignment of room is still on 1st come 1st serve - which means that a total stranger w/o booking can get a gd room, whereas, me as a loyal customer who prepays 3 mths ahead will not be treated as important. The manager insist that if i want a window room, book the highest class room, then it will be assured.

This must be that the hotel is so popular that they do not need returning customers at all.
They have laid out their conditions, and it is up to returning guests to accept it or not.

Room Tip: U need to know that there are rooms with no windows and it can be stuffy and dungeon-like. They roo...

stayed one night in a Superior Queen , the hotel itself is centrally located , close to Singapore night life and restaurants. the room is a little bit small for my likely , but the room was nicely furnished and clean, check in was bit sluggish but once i checked in i enjoyed the stay, other then the smallish room i have nothing bad to say about the hotel the room was perfect for one person but i think if it was two people sharing the room it would of been a bit awkward with luggage the staff were pleasant ,ho
