Reviewed 25 April 2012

This hotel is exactly what a boutique luxury hotel should be. It's creative and fun but offensively luxurious too. We stayed here for 5 days and we loved every minute of it. The staff were fantastic, the room luxurious with a whole lotta soul.

The restaurant is fantastic as is breakfast which we caught every day (a first for us).

But that bed. OMG that bed is something I still dream about. Yes it's a little short but the comfort. I feel like taking a nap just thinking about it. The bathroom had that dual nozzle where you could take multiple showers daily (needed in humid singapore) without frizzing up hair.

LOVED THIS PLACE. The architecture is exciting, the rooms are a work of art and the service is impeccable any time of the day or night. We loved staying in Chinatown. We got an authentic experience - lunch for 4 dollars and a short drive from Orchard Rd which we went to perhaps twice in our visit.

Thanks for the awesome experience.

This is one of the most unique hotels we've ever stayed in. We actually stayed in two different rooms and liked them both. My one complaint would be that the mirror room has no windows so we unknowingly slept the whole day... The pool is small but fun, and the building itself is beautiful. I would only recommend this place for a weekend stay, nothing more as it can be too quirky at times. Also it is more of a hotel for couples because one of the rooms we stayed it has a completely see through bathroom.

Greetings from New Majestic Hotel!

Thank you for your kind feedback. We do regret that you did not enjoy the Mirror room due to it being window-less. However, for future stays do let us know of your rooming preference and we'd be pleased to accord you a suitable room.

Nontheless, we're glad you enjoyed your stay in the other room as well as the hotel amenities and look forward to welcoming you back soon!

This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.

It was a lovely, nicely presented boutique hotel with uniquely styled rooms for extremey reasonable prices and situated on the edge of China Town making it accessible to walk to most places.

However the best part of this hotel was the staff. They were extremely nice, helpful and did everything to make your trip the best possible experience. We arrived extremely early (6am) and were not meant to be able to check in till 2pm, however because the room was free they let us check in early at no extra cost. The Mini bar in the room was free with the exception of alcohol and a few snacks (this is what I mean about little things that just add that extra touch)

On our last day our flight wasn't til 11pm at night but we woud have to check out at 12pm. This wasn't going to be a problem as we were going to sight see all day and collect our bags on the way to the airport. Unfortunately I was extremely ill through the night and the next day. We had checked out because we were meant to but I did not feel well enough to leave the hotel. Sitting in reception with 11 hours to kill and not feeling great the staff were concerned that they came over to offer a room for me free of charge so that I could feel more comfortable and rest - when it was time to leave for the airport we tried to pay and they would not allow it as I had been ill. They went above and beyond to make our trip great and it was truely a lovely experience to stay there - we definately wouldn't stay anywhere else if and when we return to singapore.

The staff here were amazing (although I only met 2 reception girls)

The rooms are very quirky although on the small side. The bath is outside too. Toilet and shower within the room with glass frosted panes of glass. But you had to leave that area to collect your towel which isn't ideal

Close to the airport - about 20 minutes and costs about £10

Situated right in the heart of China Town

So overall I would stay here again

Greetings from New Majestic Hotel!

Thank you for your kind feedback. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, the service rendered as well as the surrounding Chinatown area. As for the shower area, due to space constraints we're unable to place a towel rack within the shower space (towels will get wet) therefore we've placed it outside instead. We do regret this inconvenience.

We will definitely look into improving these areas within the rooms, and meantime look forward to your return so we may be of service to you once again.

We stayed here for our anniversary. Each room is individually themed, so no 2 are alike. Ours overlooked the pool and had many nice touches like a nespresso maker, iPod / iPhone charger - music dock & a very comfortable bed.
I also liked that the designer furniture were real, not copies.

I have stayed here several times and enjoy coming back each time. I have now also found my favourite room layout (209 - The Singapore room) although the room with the best title is 306 (TripAdvisor rules will not allow me to put in the title ...rofl). I have stayed in a different room everytime I have stayed and never disliked any but 209 with it's tiny terrace and glassed in wardrobe is fantastic.
The hotel staff are great, the rooms are always clean and as a single female when travelling I always feel safe walking around the hotel at any time.

If you are a fan of stylish boutique hotel with cutting edge decor, then this hotel fits the bill. Converted from a heritage building, this bijou of a hotel is packed full of chic features with hints of mischief and playfulness notably the swimming pool which has porthole-shaped glass windows at the bottom of the pool to allow light into the restaurant below and at the same time it adds an edgy feature to both the pool and the restaurant. Our room is bright and fairly spacious with the glass-clad bathroom plonked right in front of the door. Not everyone's cup of tea but it will appeal to those who like quirky design. The room faces the main street which can get quite noisy with revellers in the evening.The designer Arne Jacobsen easy chairs not only complement the decor but they are comfortable to sit on. The lobby has an impressive collection of the designer chairs. Coffee, tea, water and soft drinks are complimentary in the room. Service is impeccable. Breakfast is standard international fare, adequate but not as wide a spread as conventional four or five star hotels. The Cantonese restaurant serves great food and dim sum. Location is superb, near MRT station, Chinatown and other main attractions of the city.

Room Tip: Choose room away from the main road, less noisy.
