Just outside Chinatown, a short walk from the subway
The New Majestic Hotel is located on a small street lined with historic houses off busy New Bridge Road. It is just outside Chinatown, but within walking distance to the area’s main attractions including the night markets, the Sri Mariamman Temple, and the Chinatown Heritage Center. There are two subway lines two blocks from the hotel and a few bus lines on New Bridge Road.
Hopping Chinatown is located on the south bank of the river, and is one of the major tourist destinations in Singapore. The neighborhood has a lot of historical and cultural significance, and many of its buildings and streets have been declared National Heritage Sites. Surprisingly, it’s also known for its nightlife scene, which draws crowds on weekends. One of the main attractions here is the night markets, with dozens of food stalls and vendors selling everything from flowers to clothes.
Singapore is known to have heavy traffic at all times, so the following driving times are just for guidance.
The New Majestic Hotel is a small, historic boutique just outside Chinatown. This stylish hotel has 30 individually decorated rooms with great amenities including Nespresso machines, Kiehl's toiletries, Bose stereos, and plush bedding. While rooms are modern and comfortable, most are small and have glass-enclosed bathrooms that don't offer too much privacy. Hotel highlights include a nice pool, a modern Cantonese restaurant by acclaimed Chef Yong Bing Ngen, and a small fitness center. The location is also walking distance to nightlife and the night markets.
