Well travelling Singapore to write on attractions and accommodation I choose the Scarlet as my first stay. I booked to stay in their luxury room 'The Lavish". Described by them as "A sanctuary of exquisite extravagance, highlighted by an arresting day bed in matching red velvet, awaits to pamper, but the centrepiece of this distinguished suite has to be the...

We actually got lost trying to find out room as the rooms are built in shophouses but the room was overall clean & the bed was super comfy. All the floors were carpeted and gives a warm feeling walking around the hotel. Its close to Chinatown & easy to navigate once you know the landmarks.

I am a big fan of the Scarlet and returned for the third time recently. The big minus right now is the building work that is going on opposite the hotel which meant we had a view only of the large wooden boards opposite the hotel. Whilst i would return again, I would wait until this major work on a...

This hotel has an unbeatable location and a lovely plush ambiance. Small rooms, but that's to be expected in Singapore. Excellent service and facilities. As a tall Western person, it was funny to wear a size L bathrobe that barely closed on my waist :)

Visited for 3nts with my husband. The reception staff are all very efficient, helpful and friendly. Our room was on the ground floor and whilst larger than average, had minimal natural light..... which was overcome with some clever lighting in the room and added to the subtle naughtiness and decadence of the place. Well located for chinatown and transport, and...

the staff was friendly and the location of the hotel is very convenient. Quiet rooms suitable for honeymooners. Worth the money. Ideal for young couples. The rooms are very cosy to have a deep sleep for all.

The low rice hotel is typically decorated in a kitschy Chinese style. Some may call it Boutique style. Its okay for a few nights in Singapore.

We stayed at this hotel for 10 days so this review is not an "in and out" stay type of perspective. The location can not be beat.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Scarlet Singapore, Singapore's first luxury boutique hotel, has made a bold statement, both locally and internationally, by preserving and combining the architectural styles of Singapore heritage buildings with a striking, audacious concept. Vivacious and uninhibited, the interiors of this 80-room hotel pulsate with an eclectic tension, offering all who enter an adventure for the senses. Using signature red and combining it with opulent gold and sophisticated black, the hotel decor's provocative style is followed through in the rooms including 5 individually-themed suites, each with a tantalizing name - Splendour, Passion, Opulent, Lavish and Swank. ... more   less
