Heritage Collection Has Affordable Loft & Shophouse Staycations Perfect To Work At Or Chill Out Solo

Heritage Collection loft and shophouse staycations

The majority of us have spent a good part of the last year and a half getting into the groove of working from home. And even with spanking new home office setups, it can get pretty isolating and draining. 

If you’ve long exhausted your SingapoRediscovers vouchers but can’t say no to the comforting idea of a staycay, Heritage Collection has loft and shophouse staycations starting from $85/night nett to break the monotony of everyday pandemic life.

There’s something about loft rooms that adds that little touch of novelty to our regular staycation. And while generally, loft rooms can cause a wee dent in your wallet, you now have the affordable option of Heritage Collection on Boat Quay (Quayside Wing)’s Premium Loft Rooms that go from just $130/night nett

Heritage Collection - Boat Quay

The Premium Loft is fully equipped with amenities like a full-sized fridge, kitchenette, washer-dryer, rain shower and more. In the upper loft area, you’ll find a queen-sized bed and a flat-screen TV for you to binge-watch YOU season 3’s steamy scenes without being at the mercy of judging glances from your family.

We might not be able to party it up in Zouk, but you’ll relish the fact that the hotel is just a short 5-minute walk from Clarke Quay MRT, letting you stock up on sashimi and Japanese snacks at Don Don Donki or get your fill of CHICHA San Chen and Azabu Sabo’s famous Hokkaido ice cream.

Even if you don’t want to walk too far, this quaint hotel is conveniently situated around a slew of eateries. From authentic Kerala biryani to traditional Italian pizzas, the Boat Quay stretch is packed with plenty of places where you can tuck into some delicious cuisines.

BONUS: Studio apartment room from $95/night nett

Studio rooms from $85/night nett in central areas like Arab street & Chinatown

Not all of us have unlocked the impressive milestone of owning our place, and all that time spent at home can get us feeling antsy. Whether to work in peace or to recharge from a tough work week, a couple nights’ stay in any one of Heritage Collection’s Studio Single Rooms will give you a taste of what it’s like to live an independent life, renting your own apartment.

We all love an aesthetic hotel room to document our staycay on TikTok and Instagram, and the Studio Single rooms at Heritage Collection on Arab (from $90/night nett) won’t disappoint with their unique arched windows and muted pastel colour palette.

For extra brownie points, the hotel sits right smack on Arab street so you can easily explore all that Haji Lane and Kampong Glam have to offer. Pretend you’re on vacation and pick up “souvenirs” from quirky little shops like Hygge, or hideout for bespoke cocktails at Bar Stories. Whatever you choose, you’ll love the fact that your hotel is just a street away. The hotel is also just a 2-minute walk to Masjid Sultan and a 6-minute walk to popular eateries like Kampong Glam Cafe.
