A staycation awaits at Hotel Soloha, a new boutique property in Chinatown

It joins the likes of The Keong Saik Hotel, KeSa House and Six Senses Maxwell in Singapore's Chinatown.

Just when you thought that the Keong Saik neighbourhood couldn’t get any livelier, along comes a new boutique hotel – which fuses the old and the new – to shake things up.

Housed in one of Chinatown’s restored heritage buildings, Hotel Soloha stands out with its contrasting white and cobalt blue facade. Step inside, and the hotel will make an impression with its neon jungle decor and vibrant art displays.

Check-in is done at the bar reception, which doubles up as a social space where you can grab a pint or two with new friends.

Upstairs, 45 rooms across five categories – Standard, Superior, Deluxe, Loft and Suite –are outfitted for a cosy stay that feels just like home. The urban jungle aesthetic extends to the vibrant colour palettes in the rooms that's a nod to Singapore’s tropical climate, as well as playful artworks by local artist Ethrisha Liaw.

Check into the Loft, which boasts high ceilings and a great view of the bustling neighbourhood, for a comfortable stay. Young couples will enjoy the Outdoor Suite, which makes for romantic moments under the stars on the private mezzanine. (Psst, there’s even an outdoor bathtub!)

With its close vicinity to popular lifestyle spots like Potato Head Singapore, The Guild, CruCycle and more, we can definitely see it becoming a trendy spot for both travellers and locals.
