Even though I love lounging in 5-star luxury suites and tropical pool villas, the concept of a cozy “home away from home” speaks to my heart much, much more. As an integrated accommodation in Singapore’s historic Chinatown, Ann Siang House is the perfect sanctuary for weekend staycations and long-term stays alike.

About Ann Siang House
Ann Siang House is a restored heritage building situated in a culturally vibrant neighborhood steps to beautiful temples like Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Sri Mariamman Temple. Its close proximity to these attraction sights as well as renowned restaurants and bars makes it perfect for exploring what Singapore has to offer.
The property houses a total of 20 rooms across 6 different accommodation types: Deluxe, Executive, The Active Studio, The Culinary Studio, Junior Suite, and The Wellbeing Suite. From in-room exercise bikes to fully fitted kitchens and Ogawa massage chairs, Ann Siang House caters to guests with every specific need. Whether you are looking for a quick goodnight sleep for an overnight stay or you’re planning to be in town for a little longer, they’ve got you covered!
What’s great about staying at Ann Siang House is that it is centrally located in the downtown core. From Changi Airport Singapore, it takes approximately 20 minutes by car to reach the property. (I highly recommend downloading Grab, which is a more popular Southeast Asian version of Uber.) Additionally, it is also easily accessible from nearby Chinatown MRT Station by foot. (It’s an 8-minute walk give or take.)
As mentioned above, check-in starts at 3:00pm. Arriving a little early? No worries. Feel free to grab some snacks and a cup of coffee as you wait in their lounge.
The Active Studio
The Active Studio features a king-size bed with a mini workstation, Samsung flat screen Smart TV, bluetooth speaker and alarm clock, and a walk-in rain shower. As its name suggests, what makes it special is its fitness component of an in-room exercise bike machine as well as yoga mat, medicine ball, and handheld weights. Please do note that I was welcomed by Ann Siang House as a guest. That said, I was curating digital content for them hence why the staff have removed said exercise equipment for the ease of shooting. See below photo from their official website for reference.
What’s Around the Area?
As mentioned above, Ann Siang House is within close proximity to both Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Sri Mariamman Temple and I highly recommend a visit to the first.

Swipe to see what I got up to during my 2-night stay there! ➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳ Buddha Tooth Relic Temple: a Buddhist temple that typically only lights up once a year during Chinese New Year. The shot was taken around mid-May so if you are lucky, you just might catch the light display. ➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳ @operationdagger: hands down my favorite underground (literally) bar in the area.

Apart from these two popular tourist attractions… Being the foodie that I am, Chinatown is hands down one of my favorite neighborhoods to stay at when in Singapore. From traditional dishes like laksa and Hainanese chicken rice at Maxwell Hawker Center to stone-fired pizza at the top pizza joint in town at Blue Label Pizza & Wine, there is so much to uncover. Not to mention, with Ann Siang Hill’s lively night scene right around the corner, it’s never a dull moment at Ann Siang House.
