“Fantastic stay with excellent service”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Was staying there during the Chinese new year day, was given a free upgrade to deluxe room, and what make it nice was, the touch of the cake and Singapore sling inside the room. Thank you for the great stay and keep up for the good work!

Stayed here on a business trip, while it is a great location, that's about where it stops. Breakfast is average with a very limited selection. Reception service was ok, as they are unable to assist you outside of normal business hours (always need to seek advice from there "backoffice"). Shower and toilet are usually combined due to limited space, (beyond small) and we always had little ants crawling around in it, and limited hot water.

Dear Jayjepsi,

Greetings from Hotel 1929!
Thank you for your feedback.

We appreciate you taking the time to express your thoughts about your recent stay with us, and we are disappointed to learn that you found some aspects of your stay to be lacking.

Being housed in a conservation shophouse, we admit that the rooms are rather petite in size. Perhaps you may like to try a higher room category, or our sister property, New Majestic Hotel, which is located just on the next street. With larger rooms and more facilities, you may find the rooms there more to your liking.

We have also noted your other feedback; rest assured that your feedback have been looked into and addressed by the relevant departments. We will definitely draw on your comments to make improvements to our standards.

We hope that you will allow us another opportunity to welcome you back and impress you with our commitment to improve.

Best regards,
Joanna Ortega

Located very conveniently near the subway but still definitely part of China Town. Some design touches make it quirky. I did not like my room without any windows, or shall I say ones I could not see out of (skylights). Modern walk in wet room is nice. Very nice Asian/Continental breakfast with most friendly staff. On international rating, I say 3 stars, but somehow this establishment has extra character.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first or second floor, they have a view of the street.

Dear partrick I,

Hellos from Hotel 1929!
Thank you for your great review.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Although all our rooms are fitted with windows, some of the ones on the top floor are only fitted with skylight windows. For a room with a view, do request for a room on the lower floors the next time you are back with us.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon!

I booked the Terrace Suite because I was attracted to the hotel's concept of having a bathtub outdoor at the suite itself. However, to my great disappointment, the surrounding buildings can actually look at whoever's using that bathtub! No privacy at all! I checked with the hotel receptionist and she just replied that all the outdoor bathtubs are like that. Well, with the amount of $300 plus for this kind of suite, I can easily find another better one.

The room itself is small, and sometimes the heater doesn't really work. Service is good though, but breakfast is limited and taste normal.

With the disappointment I have, I don't think I will consider staying in this hotel or recommend it to my friends.

Dear Rainabelle,

Greetings from Hotel 1929!
Thank you for your valuable feedback.

We are disappointed that you had a less than satisfactory experience staying with us. Both our Terrace Suites have open-concept outdoor bathtubs set out on the terrace. Perhaps you may like to try our sister property, New Majestic Hotel, instead. With bigger rooms and more facilities, you may find it more to your liking. Additionally, our Premier Garden rooms in New Majestic Hotel each have their own private veranda that is furnished with a vintage cast-iron bathtub.

We hope that you will allow us another opportunity to be of service to you.

We had one night at the 1929 and found the hotel to be small and very comfortable. We had a corner room with enough room to open our bags and spread out. No problems with the wet bathroom and the wash basin on the outside wall as we have had both of these things previously in Thailand and Laos. Loved the location a nice walk to Club Street. When next we stay over in Singapore we would definitely stay here again as it had all the things we liked for a short stay.

I was recently at this hotel for our honeymoon ( 5 day trip ). Location, service, amenities provided are all really good for the money. It was one of the few hotels in our research that provided breakfast and Free Internet Wi - Fi in the package and at a really competitive price.
The staff is very hospitable ( esp this one lady at breakfast ) and cheery. The service at the hotel is good too.
There are only a couple of cons to this place which is i think a problem with most 3,4 star hotels in Singapore - the SIZE of the room. The rooms are tiny, really tiny but packed with everything you need. Make sure you dont travel with too much luggage and it would ideally be a 1 person room but 2 is the MAX.
WE luckily had a balcony in our room, which was especially nice when we need some air, Be sure to get one with Balcony.
But overall, good place, good people, conveniently located to the MRTs. Good Stay!

Room Tip: Rooms are tiny, get one with a balcony

I am not kidding the room ends as soon as you step into it. The hotel was really nice and cozy and the staff are quite friendly and helpful as well. Breakfast was pretty decent too, though it gets boring after a couple of days cause the menu is the same everyday. But the rooms are really really small, I guess that's just the way it is in many hotels in Singapore. Overall except for the size of the room, I would definitely stay again at this hotel. They do a have a nice little patio as well that served complimentary local flavored icecreams that were quite delicious. to add they also provide complimentary WiFi. All in all its a good deal for what you pay.
