Our first and definitely not the last visit to Baba Chew’s.
Attended a family wedding in a quaint Peranakan Restaurant Katong. It was just warmly set up and cosy. Service was top notch. The Manager, Anne and her team was very hospitable and service was on par with 5 star Hotel Restaurant. Well done Anne! We will be back with our friends.
Thank you for taking the time to share a thoughtful review of your experience with us and our staff Annie. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Baba Chews. Our service team will also be delighted to hear your comments!
We look forward to welcoming you back for your next visit soon.
We stayed in this hotel for 1 night mid January en route from Myanmar back home to New Zealand. We picked what we thought looked like the nicest hotel closest to the Airport without having to venture into the downtown area. Both the hotel and the area were fabulous and much better than expected. The hotel is right next door to a big shopping Mall & immediately in front of the hotel are several restaurants. The hotels own restaurant Baba Chews is where we dined for Dinner and the atmosphere, service and food were excellent. Across the road is an immaculately restored block of shops and restaurants, the area is just gorgeous and we were disappointed we didn’t have time to explore.
We stayed in a king bed deluxe room and it was fabulous. Tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and well designed. For the amount of floor space the layout was exceptionally roomy. We loved the little touches everywhere and the cool bathroom set up with the attractive vanity and shower behind it, unusual with the shower on the outside wall of the hotel. Just remember that as well as you seeing out, people can also see in to you! All features of the room worked well, from the quiet Air conditioning to the fast wifi. We ventured up to the rooftop to see the view and liked the look of the rooftop swimming pool but the weather wasn’t kind enough for us to fancy a swim!
The biggest regret was having to leave and we look forward to returning sometime for a longer stay and a good look around the area as well as experiencing some more of the restaurants in the area.
Thank you for your review.

This hotel is very lovely and the decor is a heritage Peranakan.
Upon check-in we are greeted with a very welcoming smile at the reception by Ms Nani and Mr Denry. As we checkin we have to fill up the health declaration form due to the Convid-19 outbreak. We got a complimentary upgrade as we are celebrating our Anniversary without even asking.
Rooms are very clean spacious and have a very cute bathtub like what i said the decor is peranakan LOVE IT .
I truly recommend the people out there to tryout this place there is lot’s of local food around at this hotel and the beast among all best is the friendly staff at the counter never fail to smile and greet you even they are wearing a mask.
Thanks Ms Nani and Denry

The hotel is incredible. I had never stayed at an Indigo property, and I cannot wait to visit at another one. The decor is modern with traditional elements. The hotel has thought of every thoughtful touch. I don't want to ruin the surprises, but everywhere you look, there is an element of Peranakan culture or tradition from the foot wash tub to the candy treats. Ask the hotel to explain the room in full detail.
The hotel is in the Katong area, which is near the airport. However, it's not in the central region of Singapore. Spend at least one night in Katong even if you want to stay in Central Singapore. The area is fantastic, and it's become a hipster-style neighborhood with incredible foodie destinations.
The staff was helpful and gracious. The breakfast is yummy and extensive. The hotel is bookable using an annual IHG free night from the Chase IHG credit card.
I can't say enough wonderful things about my stay. Thank you for making my stay so memorable.
It is an absolute delight to read your review - thank you so much for choosing to stay with us!
We are heartened to hear of you & your wife's appreciation of the lovely touches of Peranankan motif in the room. Indeed, Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong embodies the culture of the neighbourhood and our brand has their unique stories and history to share with our guests. Having said that, your review is absolutely pleasant to read.
We genuinely appreciate you and look forward to welcoming you back to our Katong neighbourhood for your next visit soon.
The first impression was refreshing. You're greeted by a greenery wall and greenery around the property before entering. The main glass door of the lobby is not directly at the building entrance, giving it privacy and probably a nod to the traditional Peranakan house entrance, where it typically require a detour around a wall upon entering.
The lobby was small and long but had Peranakan items around the area. There was the beautiful sets of rectangular carriers that resembled the Bakul Sia and had jars stacked up near the elevator. There were even side tables with Peranakan motifs at the front desk. What accompanied these beautiful decorations were the warmth and friendliness of the front desk staff. Check-in was smooth and the staff were helpful. They acceded to my request to change from a King Bed room to one with Twin Beds. My room view was of the courtyard between Hotel Indigo and another IHG property, the Holiday Inn Express.
The room was decent-sized with the shower/makeup area taking up the back quarter of the room where the window was. The bathroom however, was separate at the front of the room. The room was dotted with Peranakan-inspired furniture and nostalgic items. There was a beautiful red sofa with a carrom board table with its own play pucks. The wall had a large mural and mine depicted a durian stall in operation. There was an antique-looking cabinet that encompasses the mini-fridge and minibar items. A French press came with the complimentary coffee sachets and TWG tea bags. There were several mugs and glasses for use in addition to the old-school coffee cups. They even provided complimentary candies in glass jars (including the white rabbit milk candy!).
The shower area was separated by sliding doors and had Peranakan-styled floor tiles. The sink was on a table top that was placed on a re-purposed Singer sewing machine. The towels were placed on a low wooden stool with the spittoon beside it. There was a large old-school rope chair that was pretty comfortable. They even provided a metal bucket/tub for washing/soaking your feet and it came with the bath salts. The shower was hidden behind the sink area. Curtains and blinds were provided to ensure privacy during shower.
The location of the hotel was superb as it was near a few small malls and had plenty of food establishments in the Katong area. It was also a 10-minute to 15-minute walking distance away to Parkway Parade, a large mall. Check-out was smooth and quick. It is a very good place to stay in for both tourists and locals alike.
