"You guys are the best!"
"One of the reasons we chose SG as our destination."
"My favorite place in Singapore."
Experience the best of Singapore's rich cultural past and dynamic sociocreative present at this lovely Chinatown shophouse home.
A full studio-sized room (250+ sf) with ensuite bathroom, fully airconditioned and furnished, home-office ready (plug in and work away, there's a multifunction printer and a 32" HD screen), and all the home amenities you might need — unlimited high-speed WiFi, full kitchen (including microwave, convection oven, and your own bar fridge!) and laundry. There's street parking right downstairs, great food all around, and the walk from bed to street takes only ten seconds.
The room's effectively a standalone studio (it's the master bedroom of a three-bedroom shophouse) with its own bathroom, TV, and even fridge, but you're also welcome to use the rest of the house — the living lounge, entertainment den, office-studio-library, or kitchen with garden. Make yourself at home!
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you like — we're friendly, yet understand we all need our headspace sometimes. And like our guests, we're also travelers, so every experience can be a little different.
We've given our guests impromptu tours (sightseeing or shopping), brought guests to pop-up parties, helped arrange tickets, recommended real estate agents, and even set up business meetings. The shophouse has hosted filmmakers, curators, artists, writers, musicians, entrepreneurs, and all sorts of buzzy sociocreative activity — salons, parties, candlelit dinners, exhibitions, film shoots, social gaming nights, and more!
There's always a new story in this space — you just might be part of the next one. We certainly hope so :)
The location: a charming, small lane just off Club St with an incredible variety of restaurants and cafes at your doorstep, in historic Chinatown and right next to Singapore's bustling central business district, set in a delightfully walkable neighborhood full of heritage, temples, coffee shops, and surprises. Club St is the busiest pedestrian-street party in Singapore every weekend night, and it's less than a minute's walk away.
We're a few minutes walk away from 4 out of Singapore's 5 MRT lines — it's a 3 min walk to Telok Ayer MRT (blue Downtown Line), 5 min walk to Chinatown MRT (purple Northeast Line), 7 min walk to Raffles Place MRT (red North-South and green East-West lines, that also goes to the airport in ~40 mins). You can also get a bus to pretty much anywhere in the city from here, and most of downtown is within a 30-minute walking radius. Taxis are also plentiful and easy (lots of people take cabs into the city, so they're usually freed up by the time they get here).
Welcome the abode; we hope you'll relish it!
Simply speaking, we feel that living together is based on common sense:
Your friends are always welcome, but we do try to be considerate of noise levels at night.
You'll have fridge space and a shelf in the kitchen to yourself, and we'll love you for cooking up a storm if you're happy to clean the dishes before the ants get to them - we are in the tropics!
Your are welcome to do laundry and dry your clothes in your room on the rack provided.
If you smoke, feel free to enjoy some quiet time downstairs in our little laneway.
Please do let us know your approximate arrival time and do get in touch should you be delayed - we'd like to hand you they keys personally and show you around upon arrival. Make sure you have your ID at hand as well. General check out time is 11am as we need time for cleaning, but we can be flexible.
Most importantly - ENJOY!
Sam was an awesome host!
From the moment we got there until we left he made us feelas though we were the only one there.
The location was great, the place was amazing and we'd love to go back.
Staying with Samuel was a great experience! He was very kind, showed me around and provided me with everything I needed for a great stay. The room is beautiful, very comfortable and clean. The area is fantastic with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and with good transport links. The room can be a little noisy with the nearby bars and refuse collection in the mornings, but it wasn't a big problem for me. I would definitely return to stay with Samuel again!
I had a memorable stay at Samuel's place! He makes you feel right at home and helps wherever he can. Great location to discover the city & to go out.
I had the opportunity stay with Samuel for almost a month on arrival in Singapore. In short, I'm delighted that I did. Samuel, like me travels a fair bit for work, so our interactions were pretty limited, but he is an absolute gentleman and goes out of his way to assist with recommendations in and around Singapore.
Sam's place is delightful - literally 5-10 minutes walk from Raffles Place, and for me 3 minutes from my office, you'll stay in a beautifully renovated shophouse, upstairs and off Club Street, an historic and extremely vibrant neighbourhood in Singapore's bustling CBD.
The room is spacious, well ventilated and has two airconditioners and wi-fi. Sam has thoughtfully included an iron, ironing board and Singapore city/food guides, which was a welcome touch.
Highly recommended and I will be recommending to friends and family looking to stay in the CBD.
I had a wonderful stay with Samuel in Singapore. Samuel is a great host, I felt really at home while also having my own independence within his apartment. I was there for a work trip for 3 weeks and really felt like a local living in Singapore. The location is perfect, right beside all the good bars and lots of fun things happening in Chinatown. The room itself is lovely, very spacious with a great view of the cityscape and a a really comfy bed. I'll definitely stay here again if I get to go back to Singapore. Thanks Samuel!!
If you are looking for a place to stay at super central of Singapore, this place is the answer. All good restaurants and bars are just a step away. Even it is a shared apartment but you will get your own space with everything you need in your studio. The one who i cannot forget to mention is Sam. Sam is very nice, friendly and caring host. I absolutely go back again soon!
