Everyone loves a room with a great color scheme — but what about an entire hotel? in Singapore's Chinatown confirms that a strict black and white palette is just as visually pleasing as you might expect.
Converted from six historic shop houses, the boutique lodge designed by pairs contemporary minimalist decor with the building's original design fixtures, such as Rococo-era windows and air wells. A stay at the Hotel Mono is where the Singapore of today meets the metropolis of years past.
The hotel features 46 rooms, each with their own unique personalities, while adhering to the color palette, of course! From studios to family suites, each room boasts sleek, geometric design through hand-picked black and white furniture and decor. Another commonality shared by each of the rooms is a black metal bar that snakes its way through the hotel, providing the perfect place to hang your clothes or coats.
Once you check into your room, expect a seriously luxe experience. Each space has a deliciously h bed to crash on, rain showers in every bathroom, and of course, enough mirrors for ample Instagram shots.
Due to historic building restrictions, there aren't any onsite restaurants. There are, however, plenty of eateries and street food options just down the street at Maxwell Road Hawker Centre and Ann Siang Hill. Room service might not be a thing, but what better way to explore the neighborhood that food cart-hopping?
One of the best things about Hotel Mono: the prices are pretty affordable. Get a standard double room for two people at around $97 per night. Not bad for a brand new boutique hotel that has minimalist design down pat.
