Hotel 1929

Reviewed 3 February 2014

We went to 1929 on Dec2013. It is a great small boutique hotel. The rooms are small but functional (Ideal for people who are not going to stay many hours of the day in the hotel). Wi fi connection is also very good, and they let you connect several devices (not as other hotels is Asia that only allow you to connect one device).The staff is very very helpful: we needed help and orientation several times, and all of them were so nice and help us, and also give us advises, maps etc.
The location is great! I think one of the best things! Only two blocks from the subway station. From that subway you can go wherever place you want to visit in Singapore, and the service is great and a lot cheaper that travel by taxi, of course. Also you can take that subway from an to the Changri Airport and save a lot of Singapore dollars. The hotel is in China Town, which is a beautiful neighborhood for tourist to stay (the 2nd best thing of the hotel). By night we always had a walk, and there was many restaurants and shops close. There is also a fair of local products where we bought all our presents.
The breakfast is just good, according to the 3 stars hotels, but more that enough.
In general terms definitely return to the hotel!!! 100% recommended!!! Beautiful experience in Singapore

We stayed at this hotel for five nights after a relative who stayed there a year ago recommended it to us. We booked the Terrace Suite which was the best decision (see below)! The location is excellent, MRT Station Outram Park is a 4 min stroll away – but with the high density of restaurants and bars in the area one doesn’t have to stray too far away to find a great place to eat (Esquinas, Keong Saik Snacks) or to drink (Vida Vino, The Library). The room was very clean, well furnished and comfortable, the staff most friendly and helpful, the breakfast decent, and the WiFi offered its very good broadband connection even on the terrace. Absolutely no complaints.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Book the Terrace Suite – the perfect place for a quick rest in the afternoon as well as for a nightc...

Dear dmwVIE,

Greetings from Hotel 1929!

Thank you very much for this glowing review of your stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed the Terrace Suite which is equipped with an outdoor bathtub set in your own private patio.

We reckon you had a lovely time venturing around the quaint Keong Saik Road. Located along the fringe of Chinatown, visitors get to engulf themselves in the cultural enclave of Singapore.

Once again, thank you for your valuable comments. Should your travel plans take you to Singapore again in future, we hope to have another opportunity to be of service to you.



Warm Regards,

We booked this hotel just for one night as we had flown in from London en route to Bintan Island. It is a stroll to China Town and located in a visually stunning street combining old style Singapore and the modern side of this incredible city.
We booked a suite and it was the tiniest suite in the world but so incredibly charming and comfortable at the same time. You need to be on intimate terms with your sleeping companion as the loo is in the bedroom with only frosted glass to separate you - it's a also a wet room BUT the most incredible thing about this room is the walk onto large balcony which has a bath tub and shower totally open to the elements. It's incredible. We all wished we could have stayed an extra night but sadly our schedule was fixed. If you stay there, you should visit a local restaurant called "Esquina" - it's 0.1 mile so a very short stroll. Just a wonderful place to chill out and eat great food which is cooked in an open kitchen. I think you might need to book a table if you do want to eat there but you can also go for just a drink. It gets V busy at weekends.

Room Tip: they are all tiny but we really enjoyed the suite with the outside bathtub!!

Dear Pusilla,

Greetings from Hotel 1929!

Thank for your raving review of your recent stay with us!

Housed in a conservation shophouse, we recognize that some of our rooms are a little spatially challenged but it is rich in history! The area is under conservation where visitors are able to envelop themselves in Singapore's colourful history. We are glad that you enjoyed the Terrace Suite room with your own private patio and outdoor bathtub.

Indeed our location is surrounded with wonderful cafes and restaurants. To top it off, it is 5 min stroll to Outram Park train station.

We hope to welcome you back again! Perhaps the next time you are in town, we could have you try, New Majestic Hotel, our sister property on the next street. With bigger rooms and a gym and outdoor pool as its facilities, we reckon you'll have just as wonderful time!

Yours,

Great hotel, recommended by a friend in PR. I had the smallest room, a single - however although small as expected I have no complaints. Everything clean, lots of sunlight, enough room to swing a cat, great staff, working broadband, etc etc.

it's in a great location with bars, markets, and restaurants close by. Well worth the trip.

I'm back again in a fortnight!

I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights. Location was excellent with Chinatown, Subway and bars and restaurants all pretty much at the doorstep. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Checking other similar hotels in the same street they seemed to be much the same unless you paid a lot more for a larger room. The one big drawback with this hotel had to be the room size. Awesomely small! Was difficult to have two large cases as well as two people in the room at the same time.

Room Tip: If you don't mind small rooms then this is actually a really good place to stay.

Dear Ecosse_Unique,

Greetings from Hotel1929!

Thank you for taking time to write a review of your recent stay with us.
While we recognise that our rooms are compact, we hope we made it up by providing you with a spotlessly clean room, good location to start your adventure and a complimentary snacks corner with unlimited supply of traditional snacks and softdrinks.

Nevertheless, thank you for staying with us and we hope you had a lovely time exploring Singapore!

Keong Saik Road is a golden location for food and drinks. On weekends, it's practically impossible to find a good restaurant or bar that's not full. For this reason, Hotel 1929 is worth the stay. In the morning, there are a couple of kopi tiams that open quite early as well so one will never starve on this street.

The hotel's staff and personnel are very helpful and friendly; they even accommodated my request for an early check-in after a long flight from home.

The rooms they're extremely small. There was barely any space to put two people's luggage for three days. We needed to fit it underneath the table by the foot of the bed rendering that space absolutely unusable. The bathroom was separated from the bed only by about a foot and a half so in addition to the fact that it was transparent (and made of glass), it diminished the comfort of the room a bit. Other than that, the rooms are well-furnished and clean.

Dear Valerive,

Mabuhay! Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Hotel 1929.

The front desk team is very delighted to hear this compliment of them. Being a boutique hotel, guests can enjoy an intimate setting with personalised service. We are glad the early check in gave you sufficient rest to venture the country!

Being in a conservations shophouse, space is indeed very much a constraint. Perhaps the next time you are in town, we could have you try, New Majestic Hotel, our sister property on the next street. With bigger rooms and a gym and outdoor pool as its facilities, we think you might enjoy it more!

Keep well and safe travels!

For a good price got a decent size room. Staff were pleasant and the breakfast was nicely prepared and presented. This is a happening area of Singapore and it was easy to get around from here. Can't fault it really.
