About KēSa House
KēSa House is the newest addition to 8M Collective, a hospitality management extension of Singapore’s leading property investment company – 8M Real Estate. 8M Collective focuses on curating flexible-living concepts beyond more than just a simple place to stay. Forget traditional hotels or boutique hotels. KēSa House’s integrated lifestyle accommodation is not only perfect for short, weekend staycations, it’s ideal for long-term stays as well.
Recently opened in April 2019, KēSa House is a beautifully restored heritage building with a total of 60 guest rooms under 5 different room types: Cozy, Urban, Sky, Entertain, and Studio. While certain rooms have special in-room features (such as the outdoor terrace in the Entertain room or the fully-equipped kitchenette in the Studio), all guests have access to shared spaces on the property i.e. the KēSaLounge, KēSaKitchen, and KēSaTerrace.
Located in Singapore’s culturally vibrant Chinatown, KēSa House is a short 8-minute walk from Chinatown MRT Station. Simply take the blue Downtown Line from Changi Airport Singapore or save some time by ordering a Grab. (Grab is a Singapore-based transportation network similar to Uber where you can order rides as well as food delivery. The ride takes approximately 20 minutes; 30 with traffic.)
At KēSa House, check-in begins at 3:00PM in the KēSaLobby. Do note that KēSa House is not a hotel. That said, their integrated check-in space also serves as a public lounge for guests and conveys a very relaxed, intimate sense of community.
As mentioned above, there are five different room types with the Entertain being an idyllic sanctuary featuring a private outdoor terrace. Every room on the property has been thoughtfully arranged to incorporate innovative smart space solutions thereby maximizing each room’s layout. For example, the bed frame has a shoe rack design on both sides as well as additional space at the foot of the bed for luggage storing.
Standard double bed.
Heartwarming note from the KSH team. Their keycard holder doubles as a map too!
Again, all guests have access to shared spaces on the property. These include the KēSaLounge, KēSaKitchen, and KēSaTerrace.
Shared facilities also include the use of laundry machines on the third floor.
The Affogato Lounge
The Affogato Lounge is part of the Affogato Group known for Asia’s first standalone coffee bar specializing in affogato desserts and innovative coffee brews. Located right by the KēSaLobby, their service runs from 8am to 8pm or 11pm from Tuesdays to Saturdays.
I highly recommend their paninis and of course, you can’t go wrong with any of their affogato treats.

- I’m a clumsy gal so I personally wasn’t a fan of the big step getting in and out of the room.
