Have you ever wondered what it would be like to experience luxury, comfort, and heritage under the same roof? Trip101 partnered with Singaporean travel content creator Cynera Clement to find out. Ascott Raffles Place Singapore is set in a restored building from the 1950s, lending it a cozy vintage vibe that contrasts wonderfully with Singapore’s sleek modernity. Its art-deco exterior is a feast for the senses, while its interiors offer soothing earthy tones.

The hotel is located in the city’s Central Business District, a nightlife hub, making it perfect for visitors who enjoy high-energy environments. Just steps from its door, you’ll find Merlion Park and its famous stark-white statue of the Merlion. This globally recognized icon of Singapore has the head of a lion, with its mane blending into scales that form a fishtail at the end.

Cynera stayed in this cozy two-person studio equipped with everything one might need for a quick getaway. As soon as you walk in, you’re greeted by a hallway that opens up to a sleeping-cum-living area, which Cyanera described as spacious.

Along with a plush couch for lounging, there’s a small work area where you can catch up on your correspondences. The bed, of course, is equipped with soft linens for a good night’s sleep.
