“A wonderful friendly hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

This hotel is definitely worth a visit. It is very well located near Marina Bay and close to Chinatown with an MRT station across the road. It is a lovely boutique hotel situated in a chinese temple. The best thing though is the very friendly and helpful staff. They went out of their way to make our stay memorable, even walking us to a nearby MRT station. We will definitely be back to stay.

For my first time in Singapore, the experience in this hotel gave me a great memory of Singapore. We arrived around 8am for the checking. The room was ready for us and they offer us breakfast even though we were not supposed to get one. The staff is extremely attentive to all your desires, and the decoration is unique. The room was great and the mini bar if all free. On top of that we had a free limousine back to the airport. And the location is right in the middle of the city, could walk everywhere.

I spent a lot of time planning for my first business trip to Singapore and I was really looking for an interesting place to stay. I couldn't have chosen better than the AMOY. As others have mentioned, this little beauty is hidden right in the heart of Singapore, and behind one of the most memorable hotel entrances you could imagine. After passing through the 200-year-old, temple museum you step into a beautifully appointed lobby and first meet some of the friendliest hotel staff I've ever met. It's a very small hotel, but every room was a unique and custom-crafted masterpiece designed to preserve as much of the original architecture as possible. The customer service was outstanding, and I sincerely have to thank Jeremy and the rest of the AMOY staff for being so personally helpful during my stay. I hope to return soon.

AMOY is a little gem of a boutique hotel by Far East Hospitality located in the heart of Singapore CBD.

Housed in a converted shop house, the front of the hotel is Fu Tak Chi Musuem, which used to be the first and oldest temple in Singapore. Walking under the lanterns and passing over the threshold of the entrance, one breathes in the sadness and burden of the history of the place. As the centrepiece of the museum is the model of a Chinese junk. Then’ as one passes through sliding glass doors into the lobby, one is greeted by bright airy sunlight (thanks to the covered skylight) and. chinoiserie. There is a wall covered with various Chinese surnames. The female staff is dressed in an uniform adapted from the cheongsam or qipao (the traditional Chinese dress). The ambience of chinoiserie is further heightened by Chinese paintings on gigantic flower pots.

The theme of chinoiserie continues in the rooms. Most noticeably, one is struck by the chinese lattice on the TV wall.

The wash basin resembles blue and white Chinese porcelain.

There are little touches here and there in the room such as Chinese tea pots.

With less than 30 rooms over 3 levels (Level 1 is the lobby and breakfast area), there is no gym, no pool and no jacuzzi. However, if guests wish to use the above facilities, they can inform the reception of AMOY, and then proceed to AMOY’s sister property, Rendezvous Hotel (3 subway stops away). There is also a branch of True Fitness 5 minutes away in China Square Central, where you may be able to buy a day pass.

I recently stayed at the Amoy Hotel on a business trip to Singapore. The staff went out of their way to please, greeted me by name even on random encounters in the hallways or lobby, and generally looked after me in a first-class way. The room is compact but modern and very functional whose design and decor exudes a calmness that I found relaxing at the end of the busy business day. And immaculately clean, too. Being in the old Chinatown area, the location is terrific with many restaurants, shops, etc. within steps and the Telok Ayer MRT (subway) stop directly across the street. (Singapore has a subway system that most cities can only dream of - glossy, inexpensive and highly efficient.) The touristy but fun Boat Quay restaurant strip is only a five minute walk. If you're expecting a big western-style business hotel with fancy restaurant, business centre, gym, pool, etc., this isn't the place for you. But if you'd like a more relaxing and intimate experience that resonates with local culture, customs, architecture and people, you can't go wrong. I will most certainly return to the Amoy on my next visit to Singapore.

The staff at the Amoy are extremely helpful and friendly. I was given access to my room immediately on arrival and also provided with a courtesy room to freshen up before my late night flight. The hotel is across from an MRT station which is so handy and the amenities in the room inclusive of a nespresso machine and free cooldrinks every day, was a first for me! The breakfast did not excite me but it was adequate. Great stay all round!
