Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In southwestern Chinatown near public transit

The Scarlet Hotel has a central location in southwestern Chinatown, near the impressive Sri Marimamman Temple, a couple of night markets, and the Chinese Heritage Center. Kreta Ayer, as this section of the neighborhood is known, is a popular tourist destination for its great local food and shops, though stores are geared more toward locals. The hotel is also located a short walk from the Chinatown MRT station and several bus stops, which offer easy access to the downtown area and most other local attractions.

Bustling Chinatown is located on the south bank of the river, and is one of the major tourist destinations in town. 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 a 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.

  • 23-minute drive to Changi International Airport, or 58 minutes via public transportation
  • 3-minute walk to Sri Marimman Temple
  • 5-minute walk to the Chinatown Heritage Center
  • 7-minute walk to Chinatown MRT station
  • 17-minute walk to the Parliament House
  • 4-minute drive to Esplanade Park, Theater, and Library, or a 15-minute bus ride
  • 7-minute drive to St. Andrew's Cathedral, the City Hall, and the Padang, or a 15-minute bus ride
  • 8-minute drive to Fort Canning Park, or a 21-minute bus ride
  • 9-minute drive to famous Raffles Hotel, or a 20-minute bus ride
  • 9-minute drive to the Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Center, or a 20-minute subway ride
  • 9-minute drive to the National Museum of Singapore, or an 18-minute bus ride
  • 12-minute drive to the heart of the action along Orchard Road, or a 23-minute bus ride
