The best boutique and shophouse hotels in Singapore
Live like a local in the vibrant neighbourhood of Keong Saik at this restored three-storied shophouse. Whether you’re here for a short while or a long stay, the ‘flexible living solution’ is bathed in a bold Mediterranean turquoise palette, boasts stylish social spaces and an international roster of eclectic restaurants and bars including award-winning The Old Man from Hong Kong. The sweet digs of KēSa House also provide a relaxing, comfy home with the offerings of a serviced apartment. Sleep tight in the Sky Double (from $200) where you can fall asleep under a blanket of stars – protected by a ceiling window, of course.
Ann Siang House
With its electric blue and gold facade, the Ann Siang House is hard to miss. The hotel’s apartment-style rooms (from $260) are decorated with bespoke furniture – think lavish leathers, geometrical tables, contemporary chairs and avant-garde artworks. Squeeze in a bit of #fitspo at The Active Studio, which comes with an in-room stationary bike. For a little R&R, opt for The Wellbeing Studio that has a massage chair, bath salts, electric burner and essential oils. The best bit? Each room is equipped with the world’s most comfy bed, the Hypnos Firenze, for the ultimate snooze.
Housed in a 1920’s building in Little India, the Wanderlust Hotel in Little India is now welcoming guests after undergoing a complete transformation. The newly reimagined hotel merges old-world charm with essential modern-day comforts. Swing the doors of the adorned facade of the original Peranakan tiles and you'll step into a peaceful and inviting lobby, which contrast beautifully against the vibrant neighbourhood the hotel is in. There is a range of rooms for you to choose from – be it the Loft category, Studio category or the intimate Wanderlust Room.
