1929 Hotel Singapore
Located in the colorful area of Keong Siak Street and on the fringe of Chinatown, the buildings consist of pre-war shop houses (aptly named after its build date, 1929) which is the alternative to the ubiquitous glass and concrete modern hotels.
The hotel has managed to marry the old with the new. The rooms are definitely modern with white walls, flat panel TV and white bedding. The finishing is a cut above hotels of similar standards. The chair is a refurbish European designer original from the owner's collection. Bathrooms are an all glass affair with no screens. The rooms are furnished in either single or double only bed configuration (no twins) so is couple friendly. For the bold, the rooftop penthouse suite offers an outdoor bathtub for al fresco baths. Despite it size, the hotel has a deck with Jacuzzi in the back.
The restaurant Ember, in keeping with the mod look of the hotel exudes quality and style in both the food (European with Asian touches) and style. It is fine dining experience but without the pain on the wallet.
Can be arguably described as a designer boutique hotel. It is Singapore's newest little hip hotel and is setting the standards in a very contrastingly old neighborhood. Couple and gay friendly, it is also for young and trendy at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.
