Porcelain Hotel Singapore

Low price and central location do not always come together when you are searching where to stay in Singapore. With room prices starting from SGD 104 per night and a brilliantly located property on one of Chinatown’s best known historical lanes, Porcelain Hotel brings low hotel room prices and a central location together.

In Singapore, if a hotel has a good location and good price, the compromise is usually in the room size: the rooms tend to be very small. So well located cheap hotels in Singapore offers very small rooms. In the Porcelain Hotel case, rooms are very very small. We are talking about just 6-8 square meter boxes with no space to walk around. Although rooms are small, they are very clean and equipped with comfortable beds, Flat-screen TV, air-con and coffee makers. So if you are someone who spends time in the room or need some space in the room, either go for larger rooms in the hotel or the hotel is not for you. But if you only need a comfortable bed to sleep and rest, a shower and a clean space, Porcelain Hotel offers one of the best value for money stay option in Singapore.

If you check the rack rates on hotels own web site, the room rates start from 200 SGD and goes to levels which can put you in a luxury 5-Star hotel. I am not sure why they advertise rates like that but forget about them. If you, like many others, go to online hotel booking sites like Agoda, you will see rates starting from 104 Singapore Dollars per night. When I have last checked a 8 sq.m. standard single room with a single size bed was going for 104 SGD (rack rate on hotel's own web site for 200 SGD) and a 16 sq.m. Executive room equipped with a queen bed was going for 150 SGD (rack rate on hotel's web site is 350 SGD).

Location is the best part of the Porcelain Hotel. It is located right next to Chinatown MRT Station on Singapore's North East Line and you can go everywhere easily. Chinatown itself is the best area to stay in Singapore for many travellers. There are a lot of things to do, eat and try.  There are many restaurants in the streets around the hotel and there is a big food center just opposite, in People's Park. It is so near to Singapore's Central Business District (CDB) that you can even walk from the hotel to the CDB.

Porcelain Hotel is located at 48 Mosque Street, Chinatown / Tiong Bahru, Singapore. For very latest rates, last minute promotions, specials and deals you can check online booking through
