Hotel Review - The Porcelain Hotel, Singapore

While browsing hotel listings in Singapore, I was shocked to see the prices were similar, if not higher than U.S. prices. I was used to having the lowest price room be around $4 a night after spending several months in Thailand! The Porcelain Hotel in Singapore was around $100 a night, but was the best option we could find and the premier location in the heart of Chinatown made it well worth it.

First of all, if you are staying in a standard room with someone-make sure you like the person. You will be like two peas in a pod in these tiny rooms. The only place to be in the room is the bed, so just make sure you can tolerate being right next to the other person if you choose to stay here! 
cozy space
I thoroughly enjoyed my cozy little room, and the location, free wi-fi, and service more than made up for the lack of a sitting area. We stayed in room 105, right on the ground level, and had no problem with noise from other guests. Your room will get a tad messy, but there is a shelf divider between the sink and bed that you can store clothes and other items on. A small closet is available by the sink, and I'm not sure why-- but there are teacups and tea available, but no hot water pot? Still trying to figure that one out.

The bathroom has a sprayer attachment or an overhead rain shower, but the bathroom will get soaked either way. The Porcelain isn't for everyone, but for two people that are ok sharing space it's ideal. We searched extensively for a non-dorm option close to the MRT and this was the most affordable option. If I return to Singapore I would absolutely stay here again.
