Best for Trendiness - Expert review of New Majestic Hotel Singapore

One of Singapore's best boutique hotels.

Housed in a traditional Chinese shop house in the heart of Chinatown, the New Majestic Hotel claims to be a beacon of the ‘New Asia’ genre – blending modernity, international design with local heritage. I especially love the designer chairs in the lobby, it's a great place to sit and watch the trendy young things outside.

Location: 

Smack bang in the middle of Chinatown, the New Majestic Hotel is surrounded by low-rise buildings and historic shop houses, which makes a nice change from the skyscrapers that continue to grow around the city. The CBD is a short taxi ride away while I found Outram Park and Chinatown MRT stations were a leisurely 5 minute walk down the road.

Bedrooms: 

The 30 bedrooms in this hotel have been individually designed by nine emerging artists from Singapore. There are suites with private gardens and outdoor baths. While the mirror rooms are also popular - where you can watch and be watched!

Public areas: 

Designer chairs and a fanciful, psychedelic rickshaw adorn the lobby, beneath an industrial warehouse ceiling. There’s a modern, modest sized gym with a good variety of weights and machines. The pool is chic, but small. If you do go for a swim, mind the glass inserts in the bottom of the pool – you’ll be visible to the diners in the restaurant below

Eating and drinking: 

Internationally renouned, award-winning chef Yong Bing Ngen is at the helm of this kitchen – specialising in modern Cantonese cuisine. The Majestic Restaurant is famous for its peking duck served with pan-fried spiced foie gras.

I found it odd that there is no official hotel bar, but there are plenty on the doorstep.

Leisure facilities: 

I thought the pool was on the small side, though the gym was of a good standard for this size hotel.

Service: 

The staff were polite and helpful.

Who stays there: 

Fashionistas and hip young things.

Price advice: 

Nothing in Singapore is cheap anymore, so I’d say the New Majestic is a reasonably priced boutique hotel option, especially if you are a purveyor of creature comforts and design. You can get better deals if you book in advance online. WiFi is free.

Pros: 
Funky design
Great location for restaurants and bars
Nespresso coffee makers in rooms
Cons: 
Small swimming pool
Outside street noise can be loud at night
