I loved the Scarlet. At first I was a little surprised to find this tiny boutique hotel in a very "local" flavor section of Chinatown in Singapore. The Hotel and my room were small, but the vibe, decor and atmosphere made up for it. I really liked this place.
Yes, I too wish I had a window, my light also came from some weird "hole" in the ceiling 15 feet up in a small abyss in the ceiling, but no complaints, I wasn't in my room all that much, there is SO much to see in Singapore.
I loved the small restaurant. Although I thought continental breakfast was included with my stay, I don't think it was but that's ok. The service was excellent, the food, above average.
I had a drink on the roof bar. Super cool ambience and views here.
Lobby was awesome, and staff was accommodating and kind. The location was great, although too far to walk to several key areas in Singapore like Clark Quay. Taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced from what I recall.
Singapore is not a cheap city, but still cheaper IMHO than Manhattan or London.
I would easily stay at the Scarlet again and recommend it to other travelers ONLY if you appreciate the boutique hotel experience. This is a FAR cry from a huge Hilton, Hyatt or Sheraton.
Good luck and have fun in Singapore, a very clean and very safe city :)
