The Porcelain Hotel

Reviewed 30 November 2012

I spent few nights in this hotel,it's not a very convenient hotel if you like spending time in your hotel room. Rooms are stringent.
The hotel ambiance and decor is interesting but choosing dark colour for the smallest room in the hotel makes you feel more claustrophobic!
Rooms are extremely small.
And if you are a traveller with lots of luggages, DO NOT UPGRADE your room unless you take the Premier one which I assume,have bigger space. I stayed in a Deluxe room(the cheapest) when I first arrived, and I had at least few space to put some my suitcases below the bed and/or below the table. I decided to upgrade to Deluxe to get more space but also for the comfort of the white colour ambiance of the room. What was my disappointment when I realised that I do not even have space below my bed and not even a study table.
Corridors are labyrinths!you could get lost easily!
Overall, the staff are quite nice but they need more staff I think. Having a porter is very important and which they do not have.

Room Tip: Do not upgrade from Superior to Deluxe. Space is even smaller in the Deluxe, you will just waste mon...

Rooms are quite small compared to a regular hotel room. no space to walk around the room. bathroom is approximately 4 feet from the bed and beside the door. bathroom door did not fully close. no shower curtain to separate the shower from the toilet so when you take a shower the entire bathroom gets wet. room has NO windows. we hear some kind of drilling on the floor above us every night. we can also hear the couple next door having sex.

However, the bed was big and very comfortable. interiors was all black and modern. i love the ceiling lights which had the pattern of a blue porcelain plate. location is within chinatown and a few minutes walk to the chinatown mrt station. lots of restaurants in the area.

i can.t complain more since we got the room for $99 per night only. regular rate is $250 for a standard double

We stayed here for 3 nights, and we like for the location which is strategic. We can find a lot of restaurants, souvenirs shops, money changer, malls, mrt just walk few metres from the hotel.

But what impress us about this hotel is almost of the wall is porcelain. And what we really shocked was the room, which is tiny (smaller than small). Not recommended for family with children, eventhough we're not tKing the smallest room. It's just about 14 metre square. But it really organized and designed for small room.

The bad is the sound proofing is sucks, you can hear the sound coming from the side room or the alley.

Room Tip: Stay here if you really need the location. Don't stay in the room that view to the road

We stayed here for 5 nights altogether and enjoyed our time here. We booked for 2 nights via booking.com and paid for a superior room but got upgraded to an executive room which was nice plus it was away from all the other rooms and had a little seating area outside :) very modern bathroom, the rooms are small but if you just read the measurements online its obvious. When we asked to stay for a further 3 nights we were told we would have to move rooms and book via booking.com again if we wanted the same rate as they couldnt match it, DO NOT just turn up and book a room, its so much more expensive! Our new room was a superior which was smaller and with the dark Blue and Black colours it was dark but again it clearly shows this on the pictures all over the internet so its daft to complain about the size of the rooms etc Our room was cleaned everyday and its such a great location, chinatown is great and the MRT is minutes away. We would stay here again, it is expensive but its Singapore, your not going to get much cheaper unless you book a hostel and share a bathroom.

Room Tip: If you want space book an exec room etc

On the positive side: location, staff, clean, and the price. On the down side, pretty dark, no window in certain room and moreover, room size. FYI, a deluxe room is about 6 sqm, bathroom included. So not long for stays more than two nights!
