“stunning ... from the outside”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

The exterior of this hotel is beautiful - however the rooms are TINY. we had a bed that took up the whole room - the tv was literally on the foot of the bed and there was no room for us and our suitcases. Breakfast was not included [amazing given the price!] Over charged and undersized!]

Room Tip: go somewhere else

the location is undeniable excellent ...so close to mrt station, chinatown street market, and it is also a guarantee that you won't get starved cause there's abundant of food stall around by walking distance. however you might want to consider to stay there if you are not travelling solo. the room is so small that it can even have a comfort and decent area for two luggages
also ...the hotel might should start doing the checklist about which Mattress need to change. i was lucky to stay not more than 3 nights otherwise i might break my back for a bad mattress. don't expect a smile from the staff, as some people don't need it anyway as long as you got what you need. the wifi is outstanding though

Nice and cozy hotel in China town.
Feature of hotel – super small rooms (around 8-12 sq.m.). However, they are comfortable and stylish enough, standard queen/king size bed, good enough bathroom. Only one discomfort - if you have large luggage, there is no place where to open it.
Chinatown is interesting area to stay for tourist in Singapore (after Marina Bay, of course). Hotel is just 3 mins walking from metro station “Chinatown”. It has a good location to reach a lot of city sightseeing’s (4 direct metro stops to Sentosa station, 3 direct stops to Bayfront, Marina Bay Sands). A lot of shops, cafés and restaurants nearby (very popular “Si Wei Mao Cai” restaurant, for instance). Indian temple in 10 mins walking is interesting place for sightseeing.
Overall, very good price for city center location.
We are ready to stay at Porcelain hotel on our next trip to Singapore.

Rooms are lovely, every facility you need. Great location, close to train and china town mall and shopping.
Just let down by rude arrogant staff who do not even try to help you. We had an issue with a card not being accepted and it took about 10 mins to transfer funds into another account- the whole time we got attitude and rudeness from the lady in reception. After flying/traveling all that day, it took all our control not to be rude back. We just wanted to check in and sleep!! Would not recommend it based on our experience. Many other boutique hotels in same area.

By now, if you have been reading reviews here, you should know that yes, the rooms are small. But you get what you pay for, and we had a reasonably nice experience here. We travelled very light this time (only carry on bags) so the lack of closet space etc did not bother us. (no closet... only 4 hangers on the wall) I can see if you plan for a long stay it could be more problematic. However, we noticed you can slide your luggage under the bed or the table. Our only complaint is that our room was quite noisy.. It turns out that there is an open vent above our window, so we could hear everything from outside, including garbage trucks every night at 1am. If There is only a shower curtain separating the shower area and the rest of the bathroom , so the bathroom floor will get wet. Sure, there are some minuses here... but keep in mind this is a budget hotel, and the location really can't be beat. The wifi worked perfectly for us, and the small room didn't bother us since we spent most of our time sightseeing. If you are in Singapore for a short stay, this is not a bad choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not have an open vent to the street... it is very noisy at night with the g...

I got a very small room for my daughter and me. It had a nice design, but a very small window. The shower was a nice "waterfall" shower.
The location was perfect for us! Extremely close to the China town MRT station and a lot of restaurants, shops and tourist attractions.
Nice staff.
Overall we had a good stay.

I was shocked at just how small the rooms were and some without windows just like a shoe box. So claustrophobic. I asked to be moved and got a larger shoe box with a window. Nowhere to unpack or put belongings. Never seen anything like this before. Location in Chinatown good and near MRT station. Plenty of local restaurants with cheap and good food.

Room Tip: Get room with window at front of hotel.
