The trendy and modern The Porcelain Hotel Hotel is centrally located in Singapore’s Chinatown and features a spa and wellness centre.
Rooms are individually decorated to different themes and color palettes, each with stylish, modern décor, free high speed internet and Wi-Fi, a telephone, HDTV and a safe. Coffee, tea and bottled water are also provided with compliments.
Facilities include dry cleaning services, a concierge desk and the Oriental Chamber day spa with its three treatment rooms.
There is no in-house restaurant or bar, however there are many options nearby for example the Korean Barbeque among other restaurants in Chinatown and beyond.
There are a number of points of interest within walking distance of the The Porcelain Hotel Hotel, for example Sri Mariamman Temple and the People’s Park shopping complex. Also nearby is the Chinatown MRT transit station, the Financial District and Marina Bay Sands.
The hotel is in a convenient position close to Chinatown's shopping and dining as well as cultural places of interest. It is also just a short walk from the MRT station which in turn puts you in easy reach of most of the rest of the city.
Unique style and décor
The hotel's interior is very minimalist and chic with interesting textures and artworks making up part of the décor.
Value for money
The hotel is well priced considering it is in a vibrant location without being noisy, is modern and well-appointed and designed and has all you might need for a one or two-day stopover in the city/area as it is easy and quick to get around including to the airport. Furthermore, the choice of eating spots in the area is broad and probably a saving rather than having fees added to the room charge were there an in-house restaurant.
No breakfast or other meals
There is no on-site dining option or bar/lounge so guests will have to venture out to eat, however there are several restaurants as well as open markets etc. in the area so there is no shortage of choice.
Very small standard rooms
On the whole, most guests concur that the rooms are very tight on space even for one person, while most of them accommodate up to two. There may not even be enough room to store luggage away for those with bigger/more bags, so it may be worth paying the extra amount for a bigger room which may even be on a higher floor with a view.
Some rooms are without windows
Some of the guest rooms, more likely the smaller ones, have no windows which seems to create an issue with ventilation and of course no natural light in the room.
