Set on trendy Keong Saik Road, no two rooms are alike at this boutique heritage hotel, but imagine vintage furniture, framed black and white photos, and sunlight streaming through the shuttered windows and you’ll have a good idea.

The ground floor lobby is decorated with antique dentistry chairs, for which the owner has a penchant -- they’re about as comfortable as they look, but, like the rest of the hotel, cute and quirky.

Rooms are compact, with equally tight bathrooms -- in our single room the basin was in the main room beside the bed meaning we could probably have brushed our teeth in bed without making too much of a mess (we didn’t actually try this). The compact nature of the rooms is eased with a large mirror and they manage to squeeze in a TV, iPod dock (with complimentary Handy smartphone), and a well stocked mini-fridge. There’s also a small desk that was just large enough to sit a laptop on. The glass-walled bathrooms are immaculate but don’t offer much privacy so we hope you’ve got a close relationship with your roommate. The suites are an interesting splurge with beautiful vintage bathtubs. All guests have access to an upper-floor outdoor terrace which looked pleasant, with lounge seating and umbrellas, but was spoiled somewhat by a large and very noisy air-ventilation unit.

With only 25 rooms, service is very personalised. Keong Saik Rd is a bit of a walk from the heart of Chinatown, but this is a fast developing and trendy area, so there are plenty of spots to eat and drink. Rates are variable -- we shopped around online, but ended up booking direct with a better rate through their frustratingly complicated and slow website (the things we do to save a few bucks). Listed rates exclude taxes. A recommended splurge.
