Stayed here once and planned to stay again this mid year with my family. - Sleeping experience was okay, bed and pillow might need replacement as this is the first project in chinatown. The bunk bed might sound like cricket when you climb up or down, or even move. But that's alright, you won't fall and burry your mate in...

I just like the everything since it's an inn. Pros: 1. I like the management for the room. Everything has set properly. 2. The AC works perfectly. 3. The shower is good too. 4. Wifi connection is typically fine. Cons: 1. Stairs-staff awareness. I brought 18kg things inside my suitcase. I didn't blame those stairs, but it would be better...

I had a day stopover in Singapore and stayed in a single room. The location was amazing--easy to find at night from Chinatown station, near great shopping and sites, and not a bad price compared to other options for someone looking for a single room. My only issue was that the single room had twin bunk bed not a double...

We stayed for one night as we really like the Clarke Quay Footway Inn, but the Chinatown project just isn't as clean or as cosy. Staff were friendly and location is fantastic, right near train station and in the heart of Chinatown. There are better places to stay, but if your budget is tight this will suit. We stayed in...

Nestled in the center of Chinatown, I found this to be a particularly busy hostel. In my experience, it was noisy all the way up until 1AM, and I paid extra for a loft room, hoping for a quieter experience. The AC in my room only sort of worked, and dripped water on the table in the room. On the...

Perfect location, just 20 meters from mrt station, in the heart of chinatown. Little bit tired and claustrophobic rooms. Very nice and friendly staff. It's my second stay here, nothing changed. If I'll look next time for cheap two night stay in Chinatown I'll pick 5footway. Thanks!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
