Welcome to Hotel 1929 , Singapore ~~~

 
Hotel Introduction
facade

In a city incandescent with modernity, in a town living with culture and on a street steeped in history, 1929 beckons with a whimsical mix of old world architecture and a nouveau chic interior.

The hotel consists of five shop-houses built in 1929 and features 32 individually designed rooms decked in a mix of classic designer and retro vintage furniture. Guests will find that no two rooms are alike, with everything from furnishings and beds right down to the unique clear glass bathrooms. 1929 also offers two specially designed suites with outdoor baths set in tropical roof gardens that overlook the bright lights and bustling streets of charming Chinatown. Unique, hip, and comfortable rooms that are stylish yet truly affordable.

The hotel retains the original exterior of the original 4 storey walk up shophouse cum residence. It is under conservation from a past era in Singapore that is becoming all too rare these days. Painted white it does not hint of the modern interior.

Can be arguably described as a designer boutique hotel. It is Singapore's newest little hip hotel and is setting the standards in a very contrastingly old neighbourhood. Couple and gay friendly, it is also for young and trendy at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended. AC03

The hotel contains 4 floor(s) accessible with 1 lifts.

The hotel has managed to marry the old with the new. The rooms are definitely modern with white walls, flat panel TV and white bedding. The finishings are a cut above hotels of similar standards. The chair is a refurbish European desiger original from the owners collection. Bathrooms are an all glass affair with no screens. The rooms are furnished in either single or double only bed configuration (no twins) so is couple friendly. For the bold, the rooftop penthouse suite offers an outdoor bath bathtub for al fresco baths. Despite it size, the hotel has a deck with jacuzzi in the back.

Modern technology is not forgotten, as the hotel also features state-of-the-art flat-screen Philips LCD TVs, clock radio CD players, digital phones and broadband connections in every room. Guests at the hotel will also enjoy the open-air rooftop Jacuzzi, tiled with glass mosaic tiles, and landscaped roof garden.

The restaurant Ember, in keeping with the mod look of the hotel exudes quality and style in both the food (European with Asian touches) and style. It is fine dining experience but without the pain on the wallet.

The hotel plays host to Ember, a cool, new bar and restaurant which serves inventive and modern international cuisine with an Asian twist. Overlooking the hotel lobby, Ember serves guests and city dwellers alike as a coffee shop, dining room, bar and lounge. The restaurant is checked out with reproduction Z chairs in cream and dark wood and vintage Louis Poulsen lamps "rescued" from the former Danish parliament building.

The visual focus of the 45-seater dining room is the bar, with its stronger lighting giving an easy glow while lighting the flooring at the same time. Another interesting feature is the mirror panels of the restaurant, a series of random pieces that create a different wall texture together with the various reflections they produce.

Open Hours : 7:30-10:00 11:30-14:00 18:30-22:30

Lobby

The lobby is small as the hotel is small with 32 rooms. There is a little seating area and looks more like a upmarket furniture shop with classic pieces of European designer chairs (as in the rooms) and designer lighting. To the left is the restuarant Ember. The liberal use of glass and mirrors has maximised the small space. A single lift services the 4 floors.

Location
map

Hotel 1929 is conveniently located near the Chinatown MRT station, a short walk away from the buzzing clubs and restaurants located at Club Street, and a 5 minute taxi ride from the heart of the business district.

Located in the colorful area of Keong Siak Street and on the fringe of Chinatown, the buildings consist of pre-war shop houses (aptly named after its build date, 1929) which is the alternative to the ubiquitious glass and concrete modern hotels.It is located overlooking the bustling streets of Chinatown in Singapore, close to the MRT station, and a few minutes from the business district. Hotel is 15 Miles North East of the airport.
