Porcelain Hotel Singapore by JL Asia is the latest add-on to the most distinctive streets of Chinatown in Singapore. Restored from adjoining traditional shop-houses align Mosque street, the Hotel is inspired by Blue Flowers porcelain developed in the Tang Dynasty using cobalt blue pigments originated in Middle East. Enjoy the sights of these exquisite porcelain prints, not in forms of vases and bowls but be mystified by specially designed the porcelain-inspired spaces, tempered with a contemporary touch. Excite your senses by the uniquely conserved architectural buildings and heritage that surround the Porcelain Hotel.

in chinatown

just around the corner from chinatown metro stop, easy to get from the airport with mrt. Room is small, has refrigerator, hair dryer, hot pot, and 2 bottles of free water daily. Wifi is good and TV is good too. Night markets and food stalls are just 5-10 minutes away on foot.

Great hidden gem

In the heart of Chinatown, there's no shortage of places to eat and flea market-style booths to explore. Also super close to the Metro stop and the area is very walkable if you want to explore. I was there at the end of Feb and there were still a lot of Chinese New Year things going on.

I was traveling by myself and though the room was fairly small it was amazingly efficient with amenities. Super modern and amazingly easy access to the Chinatown Metro stop!

Great location, superb value

I stayed in the hotel for a week in Singapore visiting a friend. The hotel is in an extremely convenient location, less than 2 minutes walk to MRT station. It is also close to many bars, restaurants and food centres. There is obviously some street noise due to the location of the hotel. The room is quite small but is as expected, and if you can find a larger room in central Singapore for that value please let me know. Overall, this boutique hotel is a great place to stay if you want to explore the city and also not blow your budget.

Business experience

worlds smallest room, very noisy. Free wifi but there is no space in the lobby to work and there was an empty fridge under the tiny desk which means that i could not sit at the desk either. I therefore had to work sitting on the bed. No window in the room which means that there is no light and the bedroom is dark blue with a black bathroom. It is all very dark and claustrophobic!

Pretty but Small

The hotel is very pretty and recently renovated. I had a double room, but it was so small that two people could not fit in and even worst the suitcases. The hotel does provide you with shampoo, bath soap, comb, shaving cream, raisers, toothpaste, and toothbrush, but the bathroom was not completely clean. We did ask for more attention in the cleaning but it did not improve. The price and the location of the hotel are excellent.

sensory deprivation box

If you want to sleep in a tiny, dark room with no windows, to overcome your jetlag, this place is for you. It's so small you'll need to get creative about where to put your luggage. I think it's insane to charge people more than $100 a night for a shoesized black box, but then again, it is Singapore. Still, for $40 a night, you can check into WINK hostel across the street, and sleep in a pod, but a pod with a window.

Extra small room

The room is so small that because of no chair one person can sit on high bed and other has to sit on toilet. The bed is closed in on three and a half sides. Only two hooks for clothes to be hung. No room for two to store luggage. No privacy in bathroom as door glass see through. Shower one side of glass see through. Only couples that want to watch each other bath and go to the toilet can enjoy this set up. 2nd person has to crawl over first person in bed if that person is on the open side. Would not have stayed except room paid for and no refund allowed. Security deposit required on check in not returned up on check out but to be taken care of later. Do not recommend this hotel at all. The location was excellent if you wanted to be in Chinatown. But many other hotels in area.

If you like oriental food and shop in Chinatown's little stores this is the right location. Just the wrong hotel.

You've been warned

Arrived early and I did appreciate the early admission to the cruise ship sized room. The hotel is new, unique and attractive; however, I just could not get beyond the size of the room. There is no room, just a bed surrounded by three walls and a small aisle. The washroom is unusable after the shower is used: it is one in the same, in fact the entire bathroom floor is the drain for the shower. The place has it's features, but I've never stayed in a hotel that has no windows in the room. It was weird to walk outside and go "oh, it's raining, why didn't I know this and dress for the weather...oh yeah, I can't see outside!" As I knew what to expect by reading other reviews I was prepared and enjoyed my stay. Staff were nice, room was clean, location was great with the MTR Chinatown station right around the corner. Often walked down to the waterfront, an easy 10 minute stroll. Would I stay again. No, I've done this one, I'll cross it off my list and move on to something bigger next time. My youth days are long gone.
