2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
The Scarlet Singapore, Singapore's first luxury boutique hotel, has made a bold statement, both locally and internationally, by preserving and combining the architectural styles of Singapore heritage buildings with a striking, audacious concept. Vivacious and uninhibited, the interiors of this 80-room hotel pulsate with an eclectic tension, offering all who enter an adventure for the senses. Using signature red and combining it with opulent gold and sophisticated black, the hotel decor's provocative style is followed through in the rooms including 5 individually-themed suites, each with a tantalizing name - Splendour, Passion, Opulent, Lavish and Swank.

Wow we’ve just returned from 10 nights at the Scarlet. I can honestly say the choice of the Scarlet made our holiday, from the really warm welcome to the beautiful room with the comfiest bed ever the complimentary mini bar re stocked daily we thought it couldn’t be any better but Diana Joscelyn and Faizz the reception staff were amazing the most friendly helpful hotel staff we have ever come across nothing was too much trouble from recommending places to visit to places to eat and just the welcoming smiles on your return after long hot days sightseeing. A lovely hotel in a fantastic location close to transport and good places to eat in Chinatown far better than a large corporate hotel in a tower block. We’ll definitely be back x

Amazing hotel, nothing like ever seen before. Wonderfully located outside of the busy areas but still close enough to where everything happens. Clean and spacious rooms. An experience that you can't find anywhere else.

Dear Traveltheworld1898 We do apologize for the noise intrusion during your stay. The Rooftop Bar session gets over-enthusiastic over the weekend and we have since address this with the operators. At the moment, we are beautifying our beloved hotel and there are painting works near the open area of the hotel. There are safety scaffoldings erected to ensure safety of both guests and workers alike, and this should be completed by the first week of October 22. We do understand your disappointment and we truly apologize on this. Regards Anasri Onn EAM The Scarlet Singapore

Arrived a day late after 2 sleepless nights. Checkin was quick and efficient. Shortly after my arrival i discovered my phone was missing and was sure I had left it at Changi immigration. Staff immediately helped, found the appropriate online site and filled in a lost property report for me. 3 days later, I was reunited with my phone. My stay was for 13 nights, room was fine, free mini bar was beneficial and invariably all staff inc cleaning staff were friendly and welcoming. I would certainly recommend in the highest possible way. Roderick MacDonald Scotland

Dear Roderick Greetings from Singapore! I can imagine the joy of 're-uniting' with one's phone; I had the same experience last year and it suddenly dawned upon me on the extend of reliance one have on it in many aspects of our life :) Thank you so much for your recommendation. The weight of one's recommendation tips heavily on the choice scale when making decisions in today's world. We look forward to your return soon. Kind regards Anasri Onn EAM The Scarlet Singapore

The Scarlet Hotel promises so much from its website and when you walk into the hotel you feel that it is going to live up to it. First impressions are positive, the lobby is done nicely and it feels like it will be a nice boutique hotel. We booked the Executive with Balcony and first impressions of the room were disappointing. The room is much smaller than indicated in the picture and the balcony faced a multi storey car park so forget sitting on the balcony and relaxing or in fact even being able to leave the curtains open as it’s a full view into the room. The bed is comfortable and the pillows thankfully not too soft. The shower is okay… the shower head is a bit low for me (I’m 188cms) but it’s got a lot of pressure. Overall the room is nothing special - I don’t know why it is labelled as “Executive” as it doesn’t feel any different to the standard room that it her people we are travelling with are staying in. One good thing is that the mini bar is complimentary, although I think that is the case for all rooms, so again, nothing differentiating this as “Executive”. Let’s move onto the noise. We stayed a Saturday and Sunday night and the pumping club music is clearly audible. While I accept the area that I am staying in, I don’t expect the room to have such poor sound insulation that I could be in the club itself. The location of the hotel is otherwise good. The Maxwell Food Centre is right next door so you can get your fill of local food which is great. It is an easy walk to Chinatown and MRT. The only reason I gave this hotel 3 instead of 2 is because of the staff who have all been pleasant and very helpful, especially the reception staff. I think the hotel promises a lot but doesn’t quite deliver. There are definitely better options close by that would be a better choice.

Dear RichardB473 We clearly have not met your expectations and we would like to offer our apology on this. We have since addressed the noise intrusion from the Rooftop Bar, and we are working with the Operator to ensure that the guest experience is not affected by it. The downside of being located in the most convenient location in the city is the lack of picturesque view, and perhaps that's the trade-off. However, that does not discount your disappointment and we acknowledge that. We take comfort in knowing that the service delivery of our staff somehow negate some of the not positive points, and we take solace in that. Thank you for staying at The Scarlet Singapore, we will strive to improve ourselves further. Kind regards Anasri Onn EAM The Scarlet Singapore

We got a complimentary upgrade from staff Mr Ayub as we were checking-in. He was very warm and friendly. Mr Ayub also checked on us during our stay here. Our room we’re comfortable too. Definitely a pleasant stay for us! :)

my father and i stayed in the Scarlet for eleven nights in september 2022. located on erskine road on the edge of chinatown, the hotel has an excellent hawker centre,the maxwell,on its doorstep and will soon have an MRT station,Maxwell,next door.as it is,it is a very short walk to two stations on different lines. The staff in the hotel cannot be more welcoming or helpful and do all they can to ensure your stay is comfortable and hassle free;my father had lost his mobile phone on arrival at changi,nothing to do with the hotel but they couldnt do enough to help him retrieve it my room was lovely,with a vast bed,desk and chair,great en suite and plenty storage space.theres a valuables safe and a mini bar fridge which is free and replenished daily,as are snacks and coffee/tea.also included are slippers,hairdryer and,if needed,an umbrella. the rooms and public areas are,of course,air conditioned. on departure day they were happy to store luggage and also gave use of a shower room prior to our departure to the airport thoroughly recommended

My husband and I stayed for three nights at this delightful hotel…..having booked online as a result of reading previous reviews. The location is in Chinatown…..a lovely area to explore. And the hotel itself more than lived up to expectations! The decor is beautiful…..beds very comfortable…..walk in shower ( which I need due to arthritis), but the customer service is what sets it apart. Fiazz and his team couldn’t have been any more considerate and helpful! The complimentary bar fridge was an added surprise. You will not regret staying here, I promise!

I love to explore Singapore even as a local. Staycation is a great way to stay in an estate and do walk about to experience. This round we stayed at The Scarlet Hotel. Had been on my lost to try. Absolutely Great experience! Front office staff were friendly and experience. Kudos to Ayub and his team. Makes our stay very welcoming even as a local. Check in was a breeze, room was beautifully furnished. Spacious balcony to chill and relax with wine compliments from the hotel. We were spoiled with whole fridge from the mini bar. Thank you we will come again

Dear Angnlee When the Scarlet was first conceptualized and welcomed its guests in 2004, we claimed the tagline "Singapore's first luxury boutique hotel'. In terms of design and approach, it certainly provoke the senses, from its quirkiness to the deliberate choice of colours and textures all around the hotel. If Instagram were around then, we will be all over! However, what withstood the test of time is the consistent strive to ensure that every guests who stepped in, steps out delighted. We are truly blessed to have an amazing team that includes Ayub. And thank you for your kind compliments! Warm regards Anasri Onn EAM The Scarlet Singapore anasri.onn@thescarlethotels.com

Perfectly located in the heart of Chinatown, this quaint little hotel is clean and comfortable and the staff (Thank you Thiru and all the front desk staff without exception!) are incredibly helpful. You’re also right round the corner from Club Street and some of the most iconic restaurants in Singapore!

Dear Khukri53 I remembered fondly my last trip to New Delhi where I gained a few extra kilos after a week! I simply love the food. Thiru is one of our newest team member, and you should see his radiant look when he read your comments. As a father of 3 young children, he works hard to provide for his family, and the acknowledgement goes a long way for him. Our Front Desk staff is always at a sugar-overdose mode, and they take delight in engaging our guests :) It has been a pleasure hosting you, and The Scarlet looks forward to your return. Kind regards, Anasri Onn EAM The Scarlet Singapore
