1. The Sultan

We could all use a day or two of waking up in a beautiful colonial shophouse and sipping tea on the rooftop terrace. This four-star boutique hotel needs no introduction, it even has its own Singapore Stamp.

The Sultan is a collection of 10 beautifully restored colonial shophouses that have been around for 100 years. Located in historic Kampong Glam, where the area was originally home to Singapore’s old Malay royalty, The Sultan is an ideal base for you to learn more about Singapore’s Malay origins and culture, as well as the vibrant and gentrified streets of Haji Lane and Arab Street.

But if you got a sudden craving for Vietnamese coffee or desserts, there are excellent eateries in the neighbourhood.

2. Hotel YAN

Hotel YAN is possibly Singapore’s very first industrial-chic boutique hotel. Strategically located between two culturally vibrant neighbourhoods Kampong Glam and Little India, Hotel YAN stands out with its modern industrial-chic ambient for urban dwellers and suburbanites alike. Its design philosophy is actually a tribute to the area’s heritage as a warehouse and industrial district. Hotel YAN offers a variety of rooms to suit your needs and budget, including a loft-style bedroom which we think is pretty compact for one to two pax. As for the most instagrammable room, we’d say take the Deluxe Double with Balcony View.
