Located in the midst of a once-infamous street of days gone by The Keong Saik Hotel still evokes memories of rickshaw pullers and ladies of the night, opium dens and past delights. The experience lives on, thanks to the meticulous preservation work on this 25-room boutique hotel and its historically-rich neighbourhood that's still teeming with spice traders, medical halls and coffeeshops. Inside, you'll be pampered with the kind of hospitality that was reserved only for the rich Chinese towkays (a Mandarin term for the rich businessmen) who used to patronise these very shophouses. Only better this time, with a warm smile and a commitment to please.

A simple hotel hidden behind the main road of chinatown, this hotel takes a little effort to find. however, its the hidden location that makes this hotel quite a pleasant one as you can be assured that you'll get a good night's sleep.
Basic cleanliness can be expected, with a fairly functional washroom. If you are looking for comfort and on a budget, then this hotel would probably suit you quite well. The bed takes centre in this hotel and fills almost the entire room, leaving little space for movement. You can even think of the bed as a huge divider for the room. That said, the double bed that we got fit 2 comfortably, and 3 people in a room just makes the room cozy and not a squeeze.
With more nightlife and entertainment coming up at the area, you wont have to travel out of the area to have some fun at night. But if its the Clarke quay area that you fancy, it is merely a 5 min bus ride away.
One thing to note though, don’t expect a fancy breakfast. In fact, you’ll probably get better breakfast over at the Chinatown wet market located just 200-300m away.
