If you’re looking for an alternative to the big brand hotels next time you visit Singapore, Ann Siang House is a dynamic new lifestyle-led hotel that has opened in the city’s vibrant Chinatown. Housed in a tastefully restored heritage building, with just 20 well-appointed guest rooms, the new hotel defines a new modern style for short and extended-term city accommodation.
Located a short walk from the city’s key business districts, the iconic 1920s shophouse reimagined as Ann Siang House offers guests the benefits of personalised service along with home comforts for extended stays. The stylish interior design of the spaces formerly known as The Club Hotel was originally envisioned by Paul Semple and Matthew Shang at Distillery, with the new extended stay accommodation format including adjustments to in-room amenities, additional new common areas, a distinctive re-curation of the furniture and artwork, and a bold new vision for the exterior façade – a reconfiguration process led by Flo Sander of iThink.
Taking inspiration from the local streets and scenes to provide elegant yet comfortable ‘city style living’, the property expertly fuses elements of the past with the present. The spacious rooms offer abundant natural light and neighbourhood views. The interiors are designed with bespoke handmade furniture, eclectic artwork and bold bathtubs, with several rooms featuring fully-equipped kitchenettes and private balconies.
“We’re excited about unveiling the first phase of Ann Siang House – the 20 well-appointed rooms provide flexible-stay accommodation that is a thoughtful departure from the mainstream offering,” says Ashish Manchharam, founder and managing director of 8M Real Estate, which owns the property. “We envision the property will appeal to tech-savvy, professional, spirited globetrotters who are driven by discovering new destinations and enriching their business travel experience. In addition to offering expansive, plush rooms, Ann Siang House provides ample lounge space on each floor for guests to utilise as an extension of their room to work, socialise and relax.”
Following the philosophy, ‘Stay, Dine, Discover’, the second phase of Ann Siang House is set to be unveiled in the first half of 2018. Focused on uniting independent food and beverage heroes, Ann Siang House will continue to evolve as an exciting destination where everyone is welcome. The basement of Ann Siang House is already alive with activity following the December 2017 opening of Blue Label Pizza & Wine by Travis Masiero Restaurant Group, a contemporary, cosmopolitan pizza and wine bar, and over the next several months, the ground floor of the hotel will host a series of creative pop-ups. https://annsianghouse.com/
