Travellers' Choice
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.

During my solo staycation, I had a fantastic experience at this hotel. Ayub from the Front Office team made check-in a breeze with his helpful assistance. The stay was comfortable, and the location couldn't be better - perfect for tourists looking to explore the area with plenty of local eateries nearby. Highly recommended!

Hotel's Favourite
So I was interested to see hw this hotel would be. In a historical Building, it has a setting that reminds you of Asia in the 60's. Until you get inside, then it feels like you were transported to an Agatha Christie Novel set in the Orient. You feel the ambience as you go. Now for more practical. The rooms are nice, they are each unique. Nice comfy bed with some firmness, free refillable minibar. But what makes this place even better, is the staff, Unbelievably friendly, helpful and went way beyond to help me out when I needed a place to do some recording with a friend. Offered up suggestions and help, even when not asked, and even the regular cleaning staff were very friendly and outgoing, which is a bit unusual from most who say hi and bow their heads. I moved to this hotel from Sentosa Hard Rock, where I was for a convention, but in the future I will always stay here. Its also super close to Chinatown, which is so convenient for me. Hearty 2 Thumbs Up

Dear MJMBUSLAW The Scarlet would be the perfect setting for the novels of Agatha Christie .... we can imagine Hercule Poirot having his drinks at the upcoming Lounge of our hotel, while Miss Marple accommodated in one of our themed Suites! We are proud to have a team that embraces genuine hospitality. The Scarlet have also initiated some works to restore herself to ensure that our guests will continue to enjoy the enhanced experience that is so unique to the hotel. Reach out to us on your next visit; we'll prepare a nice surprise for you. Looking forward to finishing 'The Mysterious Affairs at Styles' this weekend ......

As stated in the other reviews, this hotel is a real charmer - from the wonderful unique rooms to the lovely staff and the great location, everything about this hotel charmed us. We paid extra for a room with a window, we loved the little free minibar with the free bottle of wine, and most of all we loved the staff who were friendly, made great suggestions for things to see in Chinatown, and who were always ready with a smile. Yes the rooms are a little small, yes this hotel lacks a swimming pool, but that doesn't matter - it is a charming hotel in a historic building in a perfect quiet corner of Chinatown. Wonderful, we'd love to go back one day.

The first surprise was the design of the hotel. A mixed of old time and modern times interior. The second surprise was to find such an old historical building in such good shape. A satisfactory experience was Management and Staff. Not only friendly but very client oriented and helpfull. Even the tiniest female staff was willing to help carry heavy luggage to the room. Which did not happen of course. The service was excellent and the room was very spacious and most comfortable. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. It was a competition between lying in bed or get up and explore Singapore. Of course the latter won.

Very well located, in the center of China town yet a very quiet corner. Hotel is very well decorated. The room is clean and with reasonably size. And the best thing I would like to share is the great service. The staff are welcoming, friendly and very helpful who apparently really care about customer experience. Definitely coming back for my next trips to Singapore. Lastly, thanks again to the staffs: Ayub, Francis, and Fandi.

We stayed for 1 night en route back to Australia, on a ground floor. Location: One of the best locations in Chinatown; walking distance to MRT stations (closest is Maxwell, next is Chinatown), hawker food centre (Maxwell), An Siang Hill, Chinatown mall, etc. Taxi from airport to hotel was ~S$35, Grab S$23. Checking In & Out: Uncomplicated at all, just like most hotels in the city. Room: A small room without windows, I suppose you get what you paid for. Mattress & pillows are comfortable enough to sleep on. A good room for an overnight stay, but not for a longer stay. Small bathroom (shower only, no bathtub, just like a 1 bedroom apartment size bathroom) with amenities. Minibar was stocked up with drinks (non alcoholic beverages & a beer I think) & snacks. Bottled water available. Cleanliness: Very good throughout the reception, hallway & our room (we didn’t check out other facilities within the hotel). Price: We paid ~AU$339 for a deluxe room. It is bit expensive for a windowless room, as you can probably get a better room elsewhere. If you read on their website, they do say that room with windows depends on availability. So if it’s your lucky day, you’ll get a room with a window. Would I stay here again? YES, but as I said only an overnight stay.

On the plus side, the staff were nice and the location was good. On the negative side, our room (#209) was very small, the carpet in the room was old and musty, and the same goes for the hallway carpet. My sinuses reacted to what we sensed was a mold smell in our room. The air conditioning in the room did not work well either. This hotel needs a major renovation. We were shocked this hotel was rated # 23 in Singapore on trip advisor.

I booked a one night stay here before my cruise, and it was fantastic. It's a tastefully-modernised, elegant hotel, right next to Maxwell MRT station, on the edge of Chinatown. It's easily accessible from the airport and the cruise terminal, either by a Grab taxi or the MRT. I liked it so much, I booked an unplanned onshore night here, when I had a layover before my 2nd cruise began.

This hotel is possibly one of the strangest hotels I have ever stayed in! Apart from the corridors all being a deep plum and the corridors being on a continual slope, all the public areas were very dark and gloomy. The actual room was small and grubby even though the bathroom, while not being perfect was quite adequate. The biggest issue was the state of the carpet as well as some of the furniture and the linen were well past their best. On the plus side the stock in the fridge was topped up for free every day and the there was a complimentary bottle of wine. This hotel is perfectly located for Chinatown and the SMRT from Maxwell and I’m sure that with a small investment it could live up the the lofty ranking that it currently affords o no Trip Advisor.
