Keong Saik Hotel

Heritage on a budget

What we say: 3.5 stars

On the edge of Chinatown in a converted shophouse, the Keong Saik Hotel's exterior is certainly grander than its rooms. At these prices this isn't a boutique property (try a neighbour like Hotel 1929 for that), but it has a simple charm and, for Chinatown, the rates are competitive. We had a ground floor room which didn't have any proper windows but did have some kind of a sunken skylight thing that let some light in -- at least the room was quiet. Rooms passed the white glove test and all have air-con, TV, mini-fridge, attached shower and understated Chinese art. Bathrooms are noteworthy for both their cleanliness and their unusual glass-encased seashell shower tiles (at least in our room anyway!) Rates include a simple breakfast, but take a walk down the road for a hawker breakfast of kaya toast and coffee and enjoy with a bunch of smoking old Chinese guys. The free WiFi worked no problems. The area surrounding the Keong Saik is quite trendy with fancy pants restaurants, cafes and bars, but you're also a short walk to the Chinatown Complex hawker centre, should you need a more down to earth meal that won't melt your credit card. The hotel is also right beside the Hindi Sri Layan Sith Vinayagar Temple. This is a fairly small hotel, and if they're full you'll find very similar fare at either the Porcelain Hotel over on Mosque Street. Be sure to shop online for a competitive rate.
