“Hotel that goes the extra mile”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

This hotel had gone the extra mile to help me surprise my partner for his birthday. The staff awaited our arrival in the room with a birthday cake and sang him a birthday song. What really touched us was their birthday card. Even though they did not know my partner and I, but they had written sincere birthday wishes.

The hotel had full occupancy the next day but they managed to accede to our request of a late check out.

This hotel is a tourist's answer - located within Singapore's historical, cultural and business district, it is easily accessible to culture, food and amenities.

Food choices included bar grub, restaurant, cafes and even local food at the local hawker centres.

The hotel is also quite tranquil during weekends, making it ideal for couples who want to have a staycation with plenty of activity choices yet desire to be away from the crowds.

Plus points: The room comes with a bathroom scale, hair-dryer and Nespresso Dolce Gusto.

In the middle of Chinatown, next to an original Chinese temple and the Telok Ayer MRT station, lies hidden away from the bustling city, a little boutique hotel - AMOY - full of charm and unexpected quirks. I stayed in April 2014 for four nights. Upon reservation I received a friendly letter, welcoming me and asking for travel details in order to arrange the pick up and transfer from the airport. Upon arrival I visited a couple of rooms: Li, Wang, Guo (the rooms have Chinese names and ideograms) before choosing my room. Each room was slightly different due to the fact that the building used to be a shophouse. Although relatively small and with windows at an unusual location, my room layout worked well and featured a central white opium bed, a slightly elevated wet zone in the back, and a large window bay: it felt well organized and intimate. The colors and faux antiques were a bit overdone (almost as eclectic as Shanghai Tan), but the attention to details - the abacus on the desk, the fruit bowl, the handwritten welcome and daily poetic notes, turned smallness into coziness. Congratulations and thanks to the hotel staff who were friendly, helpful, and exuded an elegance matching this small yet exquisite hotel.

This boutique hotel was perfect for our 4 night stay in Singapore. We had to book it ahead of time with a non-refundable reservation to get the best rate, but it ended up working out perfectly. It is located inside a historical part of Singapore's business district, very close to Chinatown. We emailed the day before we arrived to arrange for airport pick-up and they had a driver waiting to pick us up on arrival in a nice air-conditioned car (they provide complementary transportation one way). The room was beautifully refurbished and quite spacious. I especially liked the bathroom with a rain-head shower and teak wood floor panels in the shower.

We did not try the complementary breakfast because the hotel is located very close to Ya Kun Kaya Toast coffee shop, which we immediately got hooked on the awesomely strong coffee (or kopi in Singapore) and the very affordable and famous Kaya toast (coconut jam on toast).

I am so glad we stayed here instead of some big-chain hotel. The service was amazing and the room was quiet, clean and well-appointed. The only downside was there was no pool or gym, but after reading some of the reviews of the big name hotels I would trade that in for the quiet, beautiful rooms and great service we got at Amoy.

Dear ClarBar103,

Thank you so much for taking your time to share with us your stay experience.

It is our pleasure to hear your stay was splendid and you enjoyed all the touches from the arrival airport pickup to our room and the personalized service rendered by our team. It is heart-warming to hear that you would trade all the facilities in big name hotels just to enjoy the unique experience at AMOY. Your acknowledgement is a great motivation and definitely inspires us to do even better in our service while making further improvement on our products.

Even though we are located right in the middle of Central Business District, AMOY still offers calm and peaceful feeling the moment you step into our Hotel. There are many famous eateries within Far East Square and you got a good taste for coffee. That is the first Ya Kun outlet in Singapore.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. My team and I certainly look forward to welcoming you back.

This gem of a hotel is a total surprise as you walk through the entrance foyer which is an original Chinese Singapore temple. Inside, state of the art design reveals a stunning modern little hotel with beautifully furnished rooms, free mini bar and breakfast,and the friendliest and most helpful staff who all addressed you by name. Nothing was too much trouble.
Situated right in Chinatown there are numerous points of interest and eating places within walking distance and the MRT and taxi rank are the opposite side of the street for venturing further.
We felt rather sorry for the other hundreds of conference attendees paying double the price for nothing like the value and position of the Amoy.
A joy to stay there. Boutique hotels are definitely the way to go.

Room Tip: Overlooking the courtyard was excellent.

Great service and a nice cosy hotel. You start with a nice welcome drink and are offered a free tour of their local but small museum. With the new MRT opened next to it, it's very convenient.

When I last spoke to them they were looking at opening up their own restaurant, I'm not too sure if that's open yet.

Dear runninghappytoday,

Thank you so much for taking your time to share with us your stay experience even it has been many months after your stay.

It was our pleasure to have you as one of our first guests in the opening month and to know that you enjoyed your stay. Our team is delighted to hear you appreciated their great service and liked the tour around the museum. The “Alluring AMOY” welcome drink is the special creation for our guests to get refreshed after their journey to AMOY.

We are finally in the midst of getting our restaurant ready after many months of searching for the right tenant and concept that fits AMOY design and stories very well. We are very excited for the opening and our guests can enjoy more extensive breakfast spread.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. My team and I certainly look forward to welcoming you back.

Amoy

For a top rated hotel in Singapore, this is good value for money. The room are compact but modern, well-designed and comfortable. Free snacks and mini bar is a plus, but breakfast is slightly limited. The hotel has done nice design features, especially the entrance courtyard.

The location is good, walking distance from Chinatown and Boat Quay, although being in the central business district is a little quiet and generic. Hotel staff we're friendly and helpful and with only 27 rooms the hotel was fairly peaceful and quiet. Only thing missing was a pool.
