Our room was very small but I expected that having read other reviews - imagine a square with a corner cut off that forms the shower & toilet (the hand basin is in the room) so you can use the toilet & shower at the same time. If you travel light then fine as there are no wardrobes to hang...

I stayed here for only one night transiting through to another city. Therefore, I have to say that I didn’t get to spend a lot of time in the hotel and did not know anything much about the location apart from that it is in China Town. The hotel is nicely decorated and has its unique charms of being a...

Greetings from the team at Hotel 1929! Thank you for the feedback and we are disappointed that we didn't meet your expectations during your stay with us.

Made an impromptu decision to stay in Hotel 1929 last saturday. Deco from the lobby to the lift to the room is nice with a touch of traveling back into history kind of feel. Room is small but well equiped with a mini fridge (only able to take 4 bottles of water and no more), tv, queen sized bed and...

Dear wennyow, Warm Hellos from the staff at Hotel 1929! Thank you for your feedback. Located in Chinatown, the streets can be a little bustling at night. Should there be availabilities, we would be glad to offer and assist with a room change facing the back lane. Do bear with us while we take steps to minimise the noise issue...

The rooms at 1929 are very small but quite liveable, with a comfortable bed and all the usual comforts. Unfortunately, the doors were not well designed: smaller than the doorways, they let any and all sounds into my room as if the door was right open. I recommend that you bring your earplugs. I found the service to be excellent....

Dear Adam P, Thank you for the feedback. We regret this isolated incident as the booking confirmation was auto-generated after you made the reservations but was only received by us the following day.

Love the shophouses in Singapore, that's why I decided to stay in Hotel 1929 instead of some chain hotels elsewhere. I had a single room, room 306, with a balcony! but the door can't be opened unless you are prepared to move the bed a fair bit...that's how small the room is. Of course I read all the reviews and...

Stayed early October for two days and that was enough. The room was too even for a couple. I understood the idea of boutique hotel, something different and trendy and what I found very interesting about this hotel the manipulation of given space. The breakfast is nothing special, continental and eggs.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
