Continuing our search for some of the most interesting hotels and accommodations on the planet, take a look at this stunning hotel which sits on the banks of the Singapore River. Built in 1895, The Warehouse Hotel is a fully-renovated design that blends historical elements with modern amenities.
Built alongside the Singapore River as part of the Straits of Malacca trade route before the turn of the 20th century, The Warehouse Hotel has been meticulously restored as a modern 37-room boutique hotel, focusing on the heritage and local culture of the vibrant Robertson Quay neighbourhood.
Inspired by the builders of the original warehouse space, The Warehouse Hotel is ‘the first-ever hotel to tell the story of Singapore’s new makers, creators & do-ers, brought to life through its thoughtful collaborations.’ As such, the hotel is packed full of industrial details throughout, such as wheel features on the ceiling and plenty of exposed metalwork.
In each of the hotel’s contemporary and historically sympathetic rooms, guests will find things such as Bang & Olufsen Bluetooth speakers, custom pillowtop mattresses, 100% eco-certified Ashley & Co bath amenities, a fully stocked minibar, and access to the Warehouse’s rooftop infinity pool.
The main lobby of the Warehouse is where the hotel comes into its own with plenty of seating for taking in the architecture while you enjoy a drink from the bar, but the onsite restaurant is similarly spectacular. The modern Singaporean cuisine at Po is some of the best found in the city, with the co-founder of the restaurant being the founder of Wild Rocket, one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Located in Robertson Quay, The Warehouse Hotel is walking distance to Clarke Quay and Boat Quay; and equidistant from the Central Business District and the Orchard Road shopping district. Head over to The Warehouse Hotel’s Website where prices start at £140 a night.
