In a city incandescent with modernity, in a town jiving with culture and on a street steeped in history, 1929 beckons with a whimsical mix of old world architecture and a nouveau chic interior.
Staying in 1929 is like visiting an old friend at his beautiful Singaporean guesthouse - stylish and comfortable, but with all the hotel amenities you would ever need.
The hotel consists of fiver conservation shop-houses built in 1929, and features 32 individually designed rooms decked in a mix of classic designer and retro vintage furniture.
1929 is conveniently located in Singapore's bustling Chinatown and close to public transportation and is a sheer 5 minutes drive from the city's central business district.
We loved that no two rooms are alike, with everything from furnishing and beds right down to the clear glass bathrooms being unique. 1929 also offers 2 specially designed suites with outdoor baths set in tropical roof gardens that overlook the bright lights and bustling streets of charming Chinatown. Unique, hip and comfortable, rooms are stylish yet truly affordable.
The hotel features a selection of unusual and classic chairs from the owner’s private collection. Highlights include a Joseph Hoffman ‘Kubus’ sofa designed in 1910, vintage Eames LCW and DCW chairs dating from 1946, Arne Jacobsen ‘Swan’ and ‘Egg’ chairs, a pair of Poul Vaoulther ‘Corona’ chairs, vintage Pierre Paulin ‘Tulip’ chairs, a Hans Wagner ‘Bear’ chair and the Verner Panton chair. The pride of 1929, almost all the chairs are genuine, vintage and unique pieces.
A sense of history is evoked as you walk down the corridors of 1929, with a wide showcase of B&W archival photos of olden-day Singapore from the early 20th century. 1929 is now protected as a ‘conservation’ building, preserved for its historical architecture, which grows increasingly rare in modern Singapore.
1929 is Singapore’s heritage hotel that meets the needs of the individualistic, modern traveler. The hotel is daring and stylish, truly affordable, promising an urban adventure which re-invents the hotel experience in Asia.
The hotel also has a really cute café attached to it, The Provision Shop where guests may choose to have a scrumptious breakfast which features a buffet selection of continental breakfast offerings alongside cooked to order eggs benny and fluffy pancakes.
