A Unique Stay at Singapore’s Beautifully Restored Heritage Property: Ann Siang House

Complete review of Ann Siang House.

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.

Its close proximity to these attraction sights as well as renowned restaurants and bars makes it perfect for exploring what Singapore has to offer.

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!

Getting Here

Complete review of Ann Siang House.

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.)

Check-In

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. Additionally, the Pegaga Asian Superfood is only available in the Wellbeing Suite. See below photo from their official website for reference.

Dining

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.

  • Great dining choices all around

Cons

  • Windows are just for decoration and don’t seem to open? (Regardless, the rooms are air conditioned.)

    I love the idea of the active suite and having a yoga mat, a medicine ball, and handheld weights in your room. One of my least favorite parts of traveling full-time is keeping a regular workout schedule. It would be so nice not to have to worry about finding a gym and being able to workout in my room. Overall it seems like a really cool hotel and I like that they have themed rooms. I also really like that there is laundry. I rarely find hotels where you can do your own laundry.

    Aww how I love restored heritage buildings. And Ann Siang House looks like just the perfect place to stay in when I visit Singapore. I love the fact that it is so close to so many attractions. And the place looks so beautiful in itself. Your pictures are worth drooling over.

    I really like the modern design and pretty colors. I love these kinds of places and I will definitely consider it for my next trip to Singapore. It seems to be located in a good location too and that’s very important when one wants to do some exploring around the city.

      Couldn’t agree more! And for sure give it some thought because I highly recommend it!

    This is very timely. We’re actually planning to visit Singapore and still do not have a place to say. We will definitely consider Ann Siang House. It looks really comfy and cozy. Having a fully fitted kitchen would be helpful since we have kids with us.

    Wow what a stay with so many luxury amenities and also with health options in the room. The deep blue entrance of this stay makes my decision to book this place. A very unique idea to place a small work out in the room and also those super food sachets. I have never seen these facilities in other stays. The common room with lounge looks quirky and with full of warmth.

    Wow! What a great stay at Ann Siang House! I love their active studio room especially for its fitness oriented components and decor – the yoga mat, exercise bike machine, handheld weight etc. The breakfast too looks healthy and yummy. The location of the hotel is another plus point to stay here considering it’s quite close to a lot of food joints as well as the main attractions of the city.

    I’m a big sucker for heritage hotels and this one looks so charming. I’m hoping to visit Singapore next and I’ll definitely make sure to stay here! Thanks for the review.
    In-room exercise bike and weights? Whoa! That’s luxurious. It means I can work out when my baby is napping, even when on holiday!
    Good to know there’s shared laundry room as well! The common room looks so charming.

    Wow, Ann Siang House looks just perfect for a staycation. I love to stay at heritage houses. They have such a homely, yet an old world charm to them. The rooms look quite comfortable. And the location! I think it is one of the major plus points of the place. The next time I am in Singapore, I would love to stay here.
