We spend a weekend in Singapore for our 1st wedding anniversary, I picked this hotel because I like the look of the building. It's kind of a Shanghainese mixed European style kind of building (turns out a lot of places look like that in Singapore), and I like this name Hotel 1929 proven that it got its history.
The hotel is located at Keong Saik Street, 5mins walk to Outram Park station ( MRT / subway) and 10-15mins to China Town station (both are Purple line) . It's on the same line with Harbourfront station, which is the station for you to go to Sentosa.
There's a street restaurant "Da Pai Dong" only few steps away from the hotel. I recommend you to have breakfast there instead in the hotel (although they do have breakfast provided in the hotel). The breakfast at the hotel is disappointing, it got basic food such as cereal, fruits and bacon, beans, eggs, bread etc. but I would not recommend the breakfast there as there are other exciting food around the area.
Our room (Superior double) is located at 3rd floor, it got 1 elevator in the hotel (at least you don't have to walk up). The toilet is in the shower room (so the toilet gets wet when you shower) The bathroom is tiny, if you have a bigger body shape , I do not recommend you to book the Superior room, you won't have enough space to turn around in the shower. They use small electric water heater, so don't keep the hot water running or else you could only wash off the shampoo in cold water.
If you have large suitcase , I do not recommend Superior room as well , luckily we only had a small one (Cabin size) , otherwise we don't know where to put our stuff.
Staff there are extremely friendly , they are kind and helpful. The place is tidy and clean and stylish. Although I like the hotel but I will try other hotels next time.
