Singapore Guide | Hotels – Hotel 1929
In a city incandescent with modernity, in a town jiving with culture and on a street steeped in history, 1929 beckons with a whimsical mix of old world architecture and a nouveau chic interior. The hotel consists of five conservation shop-houses built in 1929, and features 32 individually designed rooms decked in a mix of classic designer and retro vintage furniture. Hotel 1929 is conveniently located near the Chinatown MRT station and 5-minute taxi ride from the heart of the business district.
The pride of Hotel 1929; almost all the chairs are genuine, vintage and unique pieces. From the Joseph Hoffman ‘Kubus’ sofa designed in 1910, vintage Eames LCW and DCW chairs dating from 1946, Arne Jacobsen ‘Swan’ and ‘Egg’ chairs, Hotelier Loh Lik Peng has put his private collection to best use: other people’s pleasure.
No two rooms’ configurations are alike and each room features a different vintage, designer chair. Hotel 1929 also offers 2 specially designed suites with outdoor baths set in tropical roof gardens that overlook the bright lights and bustling streets of charming Chinatown. Unique, hip and comfortable, rooms are stylish yet truly affordable.
There’s an interesting story in every corner of Hotel 1929, we leave you to uncover the rest of the hidden treasures.
Rooms available: 32
The hit to your wallet: From $168++ to $218++ per night
Why we love Hotel 1929: Judging by the facade, Hotel 1929 seems like something for royalty. Maybe you’d expect lush red cushions on gold frames, with gold taps gleaming from the toilet walls. They don’t have that here, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less luxurious. In fact, it’s a lot more homely! We also love their quirky chairs!
