okay, manila might be a stretch but i will say that i was surprised (also, i have never been to manila). 

my fault really. out of all the places i have gone, i did the least amount of research on singapore. instead, i relied on the stereotypes of singapore as an ultramodern, super clean, city of the future. i should known something was up …

    A lovely boutique hotel in renovated shophouses at the heart of Chinatown. Friendly and enthusiastic staff were always happy to help.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel 1929 Singapore

    Comfortable, clean and good location

    from

    I was looking somewhere to stay 2 nights in Singapore and ended up choosing this hotel based on the reviews posted on this site. Was delighted with my choice as Hotel 1929 did not disappoint. The hotel staff were unobtrusive but always polite and smiley :o) The room was small but perfectly formed (and spotless too). Wet rooms are funky and the huge chrome shower heads worked fantastically well. The underbed storage (with safe) very useful as it is true that the rooms are not very big (at least my single room was pretty small). Free internet access in room useul if carrying a laptop. A tiny moderm mini fridge with a bottle of water and a can of Coke a nice surprise.

    Hip boutique hotel in a very New Orleans like area

    from

    My fiance and I stayed at Hotel 1929 for 2 nights in April. It looked like a hip, funky hotel, something different in a cultural, vs touristy area so we were interested to try it, although we found few reviews on it at the time.

    Fine for a stopover

    from

    I found this hotel fine for a stopover.

    It has a very comfortable bed and bedclothes, wooden floors and new mosaic tiled bathroom. You do end up showering over the toilet because of the bathroom's size. Overall the room is slick and clean. Great location too, minutes to MRT and lots of food stalls.

    However, I wouldn't plan an extended stay here due to the tiny, strangely configured rooms (ie not 4 straight walls) and lack of storage facilities (no wardrobe, drawers etc).

    Breakfast only starts at 7.30am so you miss out if you have an early flight (as we did).

    Great Location, Pity the rooms are so small

    from

    I recently stayed at the hotel and thought that it would be fun to stay in Chinatown. I booked a deluxe room and found it to be extremely small with barely enough room to move. I was initially disappointed with the hotel but the breakfast was ok and the location was excellent.

    I did not consider the room rate as expensive but expected a little more for what is called a "deluxe" room. I would prefer to be fairly warned and pay more to get a larger room than to arrive and be disappointed.

    If you were to stay there the suites may be your best option unless you do not mind very small cramped rooms.

    Good, clean, compact fun

    from

    I stayed in a single room at this hotel last month and I can confirm that these are very small. However, they are very well designed so that the rooms are actually very well appointed and include everything you need. They are also clean, tidy and quite attractive.

    A Bit Disappointed

    from

    Just back from a 4 day stay in Hotel 1929. Had booked the 2 suites with outside bath but only 1 was available, so our friends were put into the noisiest room with the air conditioning centre right at their room. We were given no real explanation for the confusion over the double booking of their room and I had taken my booking form with me to show them. The receptionist was very brusque and a bit vague as to the booking.When we had a really heavy few hours of rain, the rain poured through our friends roof. Fortunately their suitcases were closed otherwise their clothes would have been soaked. When they telephoned reception, they were told that they knew there was a problem with that room!!! Why had it not been fixed??They were moved to another room which turned out to be better. On a positive side, our rooftop suite was lovely. They still have only the one salt and pepper for breakfast which I read about in another article - surely they could sort this out. On the whole the stay was not too bad but I did not think this hotel merits a 3 star rating - more like an upmarket B & B. This did not spoil our superb trip to Singapore and cannot wait to go back, but would warn other travellers about the standards in this hotel.

    Tiny room, a bit spooky

    from

    Originally from Singapore, I have stayed in various hotels every year going back for holidays to visit. This year I thought I would try something different - having seen reviews of this "hip" hotel on the internet and read reviews of various magazines.

    Fine for me

    from

    Unless they paid over the rack rate I think the last reviewer is being a bit harsh, it's not a 5* gaff and doesn't pretend that it is. It's true about the noise but if you don't want noise and bustle don't stay in Chinatown. My room was clean, the bed was on the firm side, housekeeping visited every day, free broadband internet in the room. Toiletries were very spartan but there's a 7/11 between the hotel and the MRT station

    What a joke!

    from

    I was introduced to this hotel via and article in Time Magazine proclaiming it as one of the best "deals" in Asia. I was planning an 11 day trip to Singapore and it sounded terrific... all the rooms were unique, "plasma TVs in every room", etc. I thought it would have some more character than your typical high-rise and so I booked it through a travel agency (paid in advance so that I could get the best deal). That was my first lesson.. Never, *ever* pay for a hotel in advance unless you have been there before and can attest for it's quality. We arrived to find the "guy at the desk" to be the most unfriendly person we had met in Singapore.. this trend continued. On top of that we had reserved the suite on the roof - the *best room in the house*... However, at nearly 3:30pm it was unavailable and after a 7 hour flight and transfer we were given the opportunity to wait in the lobby for another 30 minutes while housekeeping scrambled to clean the room. When we finally did get to the room, it was not that bad... my first disappointment was that they "plasma TV" was in fact a 15 inch LCD computer screen mounted to the wall being used as a TV screen... not exactly what I had pictured, but I wasn't there to watch TV so I didn't fuss about it.

    Chair heaven in the heart of china town

    from

    Stayed in this hotel on the way from UK to AUS at start of 6 week around the world trip. Fantastic designer chairs at every corner Eames, Jacobsen et al and the rooms are simple clean and stylish. In the heart of china town so if you have come here for the faceless western sterile Singapore shopping experience than stay around Orchard .... but if you have more sass than stay here love the atmosphere and enjoy the cultural vibe of chinatown from the pig snouts on sale in the food market 2 streets away to the street perfomers doing acrobatics for pocketmoney ..... the clothes stretched overhead to catch the breeze outside hi-rise flat windows ..... and all those friendly people.

    Food great - not 5 star or huge variety but like the hotle simple, and done well.
