I would've given this a 3.5 star if that were an option, because the experience here was definitely above average but below very good. For a boutique hotel (this is NOT a bed and breakfast, not sure why it's categorized as such), Porcelain definitely had a very unique and interesting flavor. I especially like the understated yet elegant decorations that is a mixture of the orient and that of the modern. Now, the rooms are very small (I'm talking about making a turn in the same spot and you almost run into the opposite wall from that motion alone) and as with the way it is with just about every hotel in Singapore, the prices are high for the space you get. It's important to note that to optimize space and revenue, quite a number of the rooms in the hotel does NOT have windows! If you want to make sure you manage to get up during day time, be sure to turn on the dimmer / night light they have in the ceiling - which btw, was actually of a pretty cool design. In conclusion, if all you're looking for are a convenient place to stay and one that has an interesting design (and not rundown or shady-looking like the neighboring Hotel 81) but do not care for space allocation, flair, or service, then this hotel is the one for you.
