Location

Tucked in the shop house-lined dining enclave of Club Street, bang in the Central Business District, The Club is a 10 and 15-minute walk away to the Tanjong Pagar and Chinatown metro stops, respectively. Maxwell Road Food Centre is the closest landmark and it’s no more than two minutes away on foot. Both Marina Bay Sands and Orchard Road are about 15 to 20 minutes away by cab.

Address: 28 Ann Siang Road, 069708, Singapore.

Style & character

The Club Hotel via Hospitality Interiors

The hotel is designed like a quaint British inn, albeit a trendy one, with occasional design pieces dotted throughout the common spaces, such as the Jan Ekselius-designed Etcetera chair and ottoman. Check-in takes place in the rooms, as the hotel “lobby” is a mere reception desk shared with the resident all-day diner, Mr & Mrs Maxwell, which is lavishly furnished like the living room of a bon vivant.

Service & facilities

Apart from a good supply of food and drinks venues in and outside the building, there are no facilities here. For a decidedly small property, service by the well-trained staff is way beyond expectation.

Rooms

The Club Hotel via Vossy

Set in a row of heritage shop houses, the British-inspired boutique hotel houses 18 rooms (about 226 sq ft) and two suites (about 441 sq ft). Each room has a slightly different layout but is swathed in the same soothing grey palette of wood panels, upholstered fabric headboards and blinds. These are teamed with sleek work desks, low-slung dark wood leather seats in varying designs and upholstered benches in colourful hues. Views of the surrounding roads through the original shop house windows are less than inspiring, but the Queen Elizabeth-approved Hypnos beds, down pillows and 400 thread count duvets more than make up for it. All rooms come with free Wi-Fi, a Nespresso coffee machine and Gryphon teabags, with an added bonus of Bamford bath amenities. The whitewashed bathrooms with white-tiled walls are some of the prettiest I have seen in a while, but these are let down by door-less shower stalls (often resulting in wet bathrooms). In case you’re looking forward to a relaxing soak, only the two twin rooms and two suites come with an additional bathtub.

Food & drink

There are five restaurants and bars in the house. Mr and Mrs Maxwell serves a lovely semi à la carte breakfast (headlined by fry-ups and croque monsieurs) while The Disgruntled Chef offers top-notch Asian-inflected modern European (don’t miss the crispy short ribs). From hawker fare at Maxwell Food Centre (we highly recommend Tian Tian Chicken Rice) to the line-up of restaurants and bars at Club Street, there is no lack of food and drink offerings on the hotel’s doorstep. Just a few doors away from the hotel is Lolla, one of the city’s best small plate eateries.
