While you’ll be instantly drawn to the charming shophouse building, it’s really the monochromatic palette of Hotel Mono stuck that’s the star of the show. This architectural gem is fitted with Rococo-era windows and stands out from Chinatown’s bustle with an all-white facade. Rooms are designed for the minimalist in mind, sticking close to clean lines and neutral colours. You can look forward to a tranquil space when you check in here.

Many have given a nod to Lloyd’s Inn for its urban sanctuary vibe and refreshingly clean architecture. You can look forward to cosy sunbeds on the garden deck and a dipping pool at its landscaped gardens. Its Sky Rooms are spacious enough for a sweet couples getaway or if you prefer a private deck with an outdoor dining area, book the Patio Room instead.
Just a 7-minute walk from Somerset MRT, this is a perfect staycay spot if you wish to be near plenty of shopping options. Guests will also appreciate the vicinity for popular brunch spots like Providore or Wild Honey, to end off a memorable staycation.

Be sure to meet AURA and AUSCA, the hotel’s room service and chef robots. Need towels or bottled water? AURA will deliver it, she knows how to operate the elevator and navigate to your door. For breakfast, let AUSCA know how you want your eggs — sunny side up or omelette. So don’t be surprised if AURA glides into a lift after you — you’ve been warned!

Sporting a stylised, contemporary warehouse-like design, The Warehouse Hotel has a storied past, having operated as a bustling spice-trade warehouse in the 1910s. Rattan seats and terrazzo floor tiles exude the kampong spirit, while pinwheels and dangling light bulbs decorate the lobby’s high ceilings. While a bevy of new hotels continue to open in Singapore, The Warehouse Hotel remains on the top of our list for staycation goals.
P.S. Don’t miss out on nostalgia-tinged cocktails at the hotel bar! We like the Singapore Sazerac — concocted from raisin bourbon, pandan bitters, rye, cognac and absinthe.
