It was my first time to Singapore with my boyfriend and we stayed in the 'standard' room at 1929. Our room was very small though practical and clean. Great location with walking distance to China Town and hip and quirky Ann Siang Hill. There were lots of interesting boutiques and restaurants near by as well. Great place to stay if you are on a budget and just looking for a decent place to sleep.

Hi Amy F,

Thank you for your kind feedback of your recent stay in Hotel 1929.

Housed in a sensitively restored heritage building, space is very much a constraint. Having said that, we are glad you enjoyed the strategic location. Cafes, bars and restaurants are peppered within close proximity to the hotel.

We hope your partner and yourself enjoyed the Snacks Corner at the lobby that stocks up on complimentary juices, soft drinks and traditional biscuits.

Should your travel brings you back to this corner of the world again, perhaps we can have you try our sister property, Wanderlust Hotel located along Little India. With its quirky rooms and colourful personality, we reckon you might enjoy it.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Cheers,
Lyndel Joyce

Hotel 1929 is a little gem of a hotel in bustling Chinatown area of Singapore. The staff of the hotel are exceptional - friendly, helpful, professional and willing to go that extra mile. The hotel also provide complimentary bottles of water and Singaporean snacks which is a great touch. The breakfast included in the excellent value room rate is fresh and satisfying. The rooms are admittedly small, possibly some of the smallest I have stayed in, but they make excellent use of the limited space. Added to that is a very comfortable bed, and sweet balcony. The hotel is well located in Chinatown and a short stroll to either Chinatown or Outram Park MRT stations. Around the corner you can brilliant Asian food extremely cheaply at the busy Maxwell Road Hawkers Road and also nearby is Oriole Coffee Roasters which make the best latte in Singapore. The other great feature of the hotel is the unlimited free wifi. An excellent stay!

Dear NT2340,

Thank you very much for your kind words. We are glad to know that your stay with us was up to your expectations.

Housed in a heritage building, we recognise that our rooms are rather compact as minimal alternation is observed to preserve its original form.

We appreciate your excitement about our different complimentary offers and the unique location within the stimulating Chinatown centre.

We certainly put emphasis on our guest service, and will be happy to convey your satisfaction with our staff.

We hope to welcome you again soon!

Sincerely,
SK

This small hotel has four floors in an old building close to Chinatown. The rooms are mainly very small, except from two rooms at the far ends of each corridor. These are the so called "deluxe" rooms - definitely worthwhile to pay for! But also in these rooms the bathroom is very small - tiny - with a simple glass door opening to the bedroom. If you care for privacy in the bathroom then you might want to consider another hotel.

If you don't want to share the blanket in the double bed with your partner you need to bring one extra!

The street can be noisy at times, so you might want to bring ear plugs.

The breakfast room is small but functional. The breakfast was by no means fancy, but it keeps you going. Good coffee, as much as you want.

In the foyer there is a fridge from where you can pick up complimentary drinks!

The closest subway station is NOT Chinatown but Outram Park.I suggest you take the metro from the airport, it costs next to nothing, and stops at Outram Park.

Room Tip: Choose a "deluxe" room!!

Hi kru99,

We appreciate you taking time to write a review of your stay with us.
Being in a conservations shophouse, space is indeed very much a constraint. But we are pleased to know that you enjoyed the Snacks Corner that stocks up complimentary drinks and biscuits.

While the streets can be a little bustling at night, we would be glad to offer and assist with a room change if we do have availabilities facing the back lane.

Thank you very much for choosing us as your hotel accommodation during your visit to Singapore. Perhaps in your next visit, we can have you try our sister property, New Majestic Hotel located one road away. With bigger rooms, a gym and a swimming pool, I reckon you might enjoy it more!

Till then safe travels!

Cheers,

Having traveled to Singapore a few time before I was not surprised to have a small room. The hotel is located in the more trendy part of Chinatown. The room yet compact, have nice balconies out onto the street and are rather functional. There a lots of places to find a great meal all around the hotel, But keep in mind restaurants in Singapore close rather early compared to other large cities. While staying, I wasn't able to sample their breakfast as I was working nights and by the time I woke up it was already lunchtime.
My only complaint is there seems to be an odd relationship with the attached restaurant. The restaurant does not seem to be interested in catering to hotel guests. This wasn't a problem for me since there was so much good food all around the neighborhood.
The metro is close to the hotel so that transportation is very easy in and out.

1929 The hotel is located a few steps from the subway station Outram Park, with which you can easily and cheaply get to the airport in Singapore and all the major attractions of the city. It is also located in chinatown, in an area of ​​the most characteristic and animated. The hotel is nice and the rooms are equipped with everything, but sensitive. Condition sustainable in any case if you do not stay for long periods, because it is virtually impossible to unpack. The breakfast is decent and the staff is friendly
