We had an exceptional stay with Sam and Philip! They were most welcoming, flexible, and engaging hosts, who helped us to orient to our new home in Singapore. Through local recommendations, cooking and hanging around with us, and introducing us to their friends, they could not have made this move any easier on us! We are so grateful to have stayed with them our first week here, and hope that we will remain in touch long after, as they are not only respectful, thoughtful, and kind people, but also extremely open and interesting. And, the apartment itself is a rare find in SG, truly a gem of a place! A historical site, but well kept up, beautifully decorated, with anything you might need. We recommend this airbnb without reservation!
That was easy! Sam went over and above to help us organise our stay over the new year period and everything worked out great. The room is in a ideal position, clean, bright… the bed was good, air con, bathroom - everything was excellent.
In short, we were really happy with our stay and I'd recommend this room to anyone visiting Singapore.
I enjoy staying at Sam's place. The location is great (less than 5 mins walk to the MRT station). The room is very clean and spacious and it comes with its own bathroom. We stayed there over the Christmas break and we had the whole house to ourselves!
Lovely room, excellent location, awesome people!
I had a fantastic stay at Sam's funky shophouse. Sam and his flatmates are super friendly and welcoming. The apartment is in a very convenient location - walking distance to CBD, great restaurants, bars and Chinatown. Can't think of many locations which offer the same range of dining, entertainment and cultural options so close to public transport and downtown.
The room is enormous, with a good size bed, lots of light and typical shophouse character. You definitely feel connected to the neighbourhood being in a quieter side street off a main entertainment area. Definitely recommend it and would stay again!
I highly recommend this place to stay. I didn't notice that the room has a private bathroom when booked, but it has. Sam, Fillip and Linda are really kind and helpful hosts. The location is very convenient, close to Chinatown, Club street and Clarke Quay. The room is light with two big windows. Singapore is a very interesting place, I would definitely come back for a longer term.
Samuel and friends looked after our design intern from the UK for three weeks. He absolutely loved it..! Having a great place to stay really enriched his experience of Singapore, and you really can't get a better location than this. We're very grateful that Samuel shared his lovely home. I'm sure others will be just as delighted. T>
I had an excellent stay!! I chose this place firstly because of its central location, being close to the business district, Chinatown, riverside, MRT station, bars in the area. Moreover, the room is very spacious, bright and cozy. And… most pleasant are the hosts, with whom you can share endless stories. The place has certainly character and history. In short, a place to feel fully at home. I am looking forward to the day to come back.
This apartment is very centrally located, is walking distance to many destinations and provides easy access to subways. Checkin and checkout was smooth, and the hosts were welcoming and sociable.
One major issue to watch out for is the noise level. The room is located directly above the sidewalk and has minimal sound insulation (you can literally see outside through the gaps between the wooden-floor pieces in the room). Conversations happening on the street and the noise coming from the pub/restaurant next door easily permeates into the room - this can extent into the night until after midnight. In addition, there is severe noise every morning when several garbage and recycling trucks come around 7 am. We are not the lightest of sleepers but the noise level impacted our ability to get a proper night's sleep.
The apartment was clean and well kept overall. One additional annoyance was the low water pressure in the shower and an odd smell in the washroom.
Very friendly and helpful hosts, had a great time!
Sam is a really nice guy and a very respectful guest. I had the chance to have one dinner with him and it was a great moment! He is 100% welcome back at my place. In two words: He is a PERFECT GUEST!! :)
Samuel was a cool guest. The apartment was clean and nice when he left after a short visit in copenhagen. I recommend Sam.
It was nice to host Samuel in my room! He is tidy and pollite person! I recomende him as gest for all host in AirBnB. Meriem
Sam was an excellent guest and is also a very cool, broadminded sort of traveler who is a genuine pleasure to chat with. Warmly recommended as guest and welcome back anytime!
Samuel was a very pleasant guest. He was hardly around during his visit because he was busy at a conference, but when he was at home he gave very good vibes and we had a very nice conversation. I highly recommend him as a guest and wish him all the best in his work and travels.
He left my apartment clean and more tidy than before. He is communicative and reachable and I felt he is also considerate of others.
Sam was a great guest--good communication, tidy, and just generally fun guy to talk to.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to meet Sam in person. However, I can say he's a great guest. First of all, he left the room very clean and tidy. He's also easy to communicate with and observant of the house rules. I'd definitely host him again.
Samuel is a very nice guy who I hosted @ my hostel who was very nice. I would feel very comfortable staying with him. He's very intelligent & very helpful. =)
