7.6 Good - based on 649 Agoda reviews
Why this hotel: Gay-popular. Boutique option. Near the gay scene.
A firm favourite with gay visitors, 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 popular gay bars also helps.

Like many other hotels here, the rooms are quite small but fully equipped with a flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, mini fridge, free WiFi.

8.1 Very Good - based on 1352 Agoda reviews
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 15-30 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: Walk to gay bars. Modern rooms. Great facilities.
If a hotel invests in Sealy Posturepedic beds, covers them with luxurious cotton linens and a goose feather duvet and offers you a choice of pillows, then you can be pretty sure of a good night’s sleep.
