In its previous incarnation, Lloyd’s was infamous, but then in 2014 they cleared the slate so to speak and reinvented the property as an upscale hideaway. The results are recommended.

With rooms are set across two floors, this compact boutique hotel boasts eight different minimalist room types set on a quiet corner in a leafy part of downtown Singapore — just a few doors down from the house of Singapore’s late founder, Lee Kuan Yew. The location must have been convenient for the president as you’re a short walk from the Istana and Orchard Road, along with Dhoby Ghaut SMRT — all are about 15 minutes’ away on foot.

Starting with the simplest affairs.

The resort’s minimalist style manifests through polished bare concrete and bright white walls. Showers (and in some cases the tubs) are exposed to the open sky and the larger rooms are of a loft style — bright and airy, and, in the words of the friendly staffer who showed us around, hot hot hot — meaning in very high demand. You will need to book in advance to get in here.

We were shown a series of rooms and even the smallest are quite spacious by Singapore standards. Beds are low slung, with firm beds and fluffy pillows, but no flashes of colour. Rooms come with hi-speed WiFi, large, wall-mounted flatscreen TVs, and typical fittings like coffee- and tea-making gear. Not all beds have bedside lighting, but rooms do have very large windows letting the light pour in and even the smaller rooms have a green garden view. Bigger rooms have space enough for a sofa, a family-style room has futon-style bedding with plenty of space for an extra bed, while another has a private miniature garden area. A note on the extra bed: according to their website, the minimum age for check-in is 21, so if you’re travelling with kids, do double check this.

Bathe under the stars.

There is no restaurant on site, but breakfast is available at a polished terrace area, while to the front there is a small but attractive swimming pool (which didn’t look very deep — hence they call it a “dipping pool”) and a few deck settings filling out the lush garden.

Lloyd’s will appeal to those who like a polished, minimalist style of place and don’t mind the slightly remote area — there are no hawker centres or shopping nearby, with the closest SMRT being Dhoby Ghaut. Rates are high, but the rooms are generously sized and you’ll be paying less here (for a larger room) than what you’ll pay on one of the large Orchard Road properties — and this is a far more memorable establishment.

You’ll find competitive rates online, but if you book direct with Lloyd’s you get to “spin a wheel” on check-in, which can deliver benefits such as a discount on your room rate. Before you check online agents, do check Lloyd’s website for a full breakdown of their rooms. Overall, this is a memorable spot and if it fits your budget, you want to be downtown and would prefer to avoid a large chain hotel, Llyod’s is recommended.
