About This Listing
You can't get better located than this - central, historic location with lots of charm, yet minutes walking distance to Chinatown, the CBD, and 4 MRT lines. Room is spacious with ensuite bathroom access, a beautiful view, pool and gym. Hard to beat!

Ensuite access to a shared bathroom (sharing with just one working professional), nice modern kitchen, and a spacious living room with large HD TV, PS3 and dining table. Swimming pool, gym, and guest parking also available.
Interaction with Guests
I let my room when I'm on holiday - hopefully I'll see you at check in time, but if not my flatmate will be around to help. :-)
The location is hard to beat in Singapore. It is close to all the best nightlife - gay or straight - around Club Street and Tanjong Pagar with Boat Quay and Clarke Quay a 10-15 minute walk or a 5 min cab. I know some great bars in the area and will gladly share my best tips!
The area is also a food mecca, with some of the best local 'hawker' food in Singapore, excellent Chinese food on Smith Street, and if you're craving good quality western food, Club Street is literally on your doorstep.
The area is great to have a stroll on a quiet weekend around the old shophouse back streets, and if you're after a sea breeze, or rooftop cocktails, Marina Bay is just a 10 min bike ride or MRT away.
The condo is located between 4 MRT lines - Telok Ayer (Downtown line) and China Town (North East) line are just 5 mins walk away, while Raffles Place (North South and East West lines) is a 10 min walk away.
The area is extremely walkable with tons of great eateries, bars and attractions nearby - I very rarely need to take the train or cabs.
I prefer guests not to wear shoes in the house. However, I do provide slippers - washed every time - and you are of course free to walk around with socks or bare foot. :-)
The room and facilities were just as described. The location of the apartment is excellent.
Supremely comfortable stay all around, and Bill was very communicative and easy to work with. I had been hesitant about sharing a bathroom but Ben could not have been more considerate and sweet of a host (as a flatmate). Personal AC in room was a big plus, as was the air conditioned gym facility. Place was surprisingly chill and quiet for being right in the middle of a hopping bar and restaurant scene at street level. Would recommend and would return - thanks Bill!!
I had an amazing stay at Bill's place! The location is hard to beat, in the middle of Chinatown, it's easy to get around Singapore. Bill and his roommate Ben were nothing but welcoming and made me feel at home. Check-in and check-out were easy even though my flight back home was really late I was able to leave my luggage at Bill's place and have a shower before I left. Thank you, I really appreciated staying with you guys!
Great Location! Few minutes walk to Chinatown.
Great condominium. Awesome space! very clean room.
was not able to meet Bill but got a chance to meet his very nice flatmate Ben.
Hope to be back again Bill! thank you very much for letting us stay :)
About the Host, Bill
I'm an avid traveler myself and love to exchange ideas on the best places to visit. I moved to Singapore last year, but prior to that lived in Japan for five years (= 日本語でもオッケー！), with brief stints in Argentina and Central Asia. In my short time in southeast Asia I've had the privilege already to see a lot of great places here, and can say that Singapore really is a fantastic base from which to explore the region. It also has its own charms as a city that grow on you, and I'll gladly share my fav places to go and things to do while here.
