7.6 Good based on 456 Agoda reviews
Why this hotel: Gay-popular. Boutique option. Near the gay scene.
A firm favourite with gay tourists, having earned its credentials as a very gay-friendly hotel by sponsoring the Gay Nation parties a few years back. The fact that Hotel 1929 is located just a short walk from many of the most popular gay bars also helps.
Each room is has its own unique retro styling. There are two special suites that come with outdoor baths set in tropical roof gardens. Like many other hotels in Chinatown, the rooms are relatively compact but fully equipped with a flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, mini fridge, free WiFi. Very affordable, popular choice on Travel Gay Asia.

Why this hotel: Stylish boutique hotel. Close to the gay scene.
One of Singapore’s newest boutique hotels, located within a building that was originally constructed in 1858. Formally known as “The Saff”, Naumi Liora is ideally located in the heart of Chinatown, just moments away from all the gay bars, clubs and saunas on Neil Road and Pagoda Street and a huge choice of cafés and restaurants.
The multi-million-dollar renovations in 2012 have seen the 79 rooms and suites completely refreshed and revamped. We particularly like the restyled Porch Rooms that have a secret garden and premium amenities including a Nespresso coffee machine and free WiFi.
The hotel has its own 24-hour fitness room with the latest cardiovascular equipment and a nibbles bar in the lobby, offering 24-hour access to complimentary treats and snacks.

Why this hotel: Unique rooms. Boutique choice. Near the gay scene.
This stylish, slightly funky boutique hotel has 30 uniquely themed rooms, some of which feature outdoor bathtubs! We love the Nespresso coffee machine, Kiehl’s products in the bathroom, complimentary soft drinks and great buffet breakfast. Whilst the standard rooms are relatively compact, they are also great value for money. Friendly and efficient service. New Majestic is located in Chinatown, just a couple of minutes’ walk from the gay bars, clubs and saunas in and around Neil Road.

Why this hotel: Boutique choice. Stylish design. Near the gay scene.
One of the first ’boutique luxury’ hotels to open in Singapore. A cool $45 million was spent converting a row of 1860′s shop houses and an 1924 art deco building into a rather bold and daring hotel. Today, narrow corridors wind through the building to sumptuously designed rooms with names such as ‘Swank’, ‘Opulent’, ‘Passion’ and ‘Lavish’. Rooms are smaller than average (from 15 to 30 m²) but have very comfortable beds and free WiFi. The Scarlet has a small gym with free weights and an open-air rooftop restaurant & bar.

Why this hotel: Convenient & quiet. Large rooms. Near the gay scene.
The contemporary-styled M Hotel is billed as a business hotel. However, even business hotels don’t like empty rooms, particularly at the weekends, so it’s worth checking to see what offers are available. The rooms are amongst the most spacious in Singapore and feature LCD TV’s and WiFi internet (chargeable or free depending on the rate). The hotel has its own reasonably well-equipped gym, pool and spa.
Location-wise, the M Hotel is just outside Chinatown and a 10-minute walk from the gay bars & clubs on Neil Road. Nearest MRT: Tanjong Pagar (200 m)

Why this hotel: Contemporary design. Well-equipped room. Excellent bar.
We like the oddly-named Wangz Hotel. Why? Because a hotel that invests in Sealy Posturepedic beds, covers them with luxurious cotton linens and a goose feather down duvet, and offers you a choice of pillows, then you can be pretty darn sure of a good night’s sleep.
We also like the stylish, almost quirky, art deco architectural design of the building and the beautiful, contemporary rooms that feature free WiFi, 37-inch flat screen TV, universal power sockets, DVD player, iPod dock, tea & coffee facilities and in-room safe. The bathrooms have rain showers and Molton Brown amenities.
Location-wise, Wangz is just a 15-minute walk from the bars, clubs and saunas in and around Neil Road (or just a couple of minutes on a bus (there’s a stop right outside the hotel).

Why this hotel: Groovy boutique hotel Unique design. Near the gay scene.
If Austin Powers was on a mission in Singapore, this is where he would stay. Klapsons is a totally groovy boutique hotel offering just 17 rooms.
Your experience at Klapsons starts by entering the orb like reception pod to check in, after which you are shown to your selected room or suite.
Each guest room has bespoke fittings and furniture including full-length mirrors (essential for Mr. Powers and the modern-day queen), colour-changing LED lights, ‘open concept’ rain showers and, in some, an outdoor jacuzzi. These totally chic rooms have all the goodies we love, such as Sealy mattress, goose down pillows and Nespresso coffee machine.
Location-wise, Klapsons is just a few minutes’ walk from all the Neil Road gay bars and clubs and 5-10 minutes to the rest of Chinatown.

Why this hotel: Unique & fun. Boutique option in Little India.
Wanderlust promotes itself as a “totally experimental boutique hotel that is set to draw madcap voyagers”. The styling of its four themed floors and 29 relatively small rooms (15-19 m²) was undertaken by four award-winning Singapore design agencies – and they have certainly come up with something unique!
Each guest room features a posturepedic bed, LCD TV, rain shower, Shanghai Tang amenities, complimentary drinks in the fridge, air conditioning, free WiFi and a Nespresso coffee machine. Wunderlust has its own Cocotte restaurant that serves unpretentious French cuisine, but you are really spoilt for choice when it comes to dining and drinking in this busy Little India district.
