God's own godown


Riverside Robertson Quay

Industrial heritage meets creative design at The Warehouse Hotel, a converted spice-trade godown on the waterfront of Singapore’s vibrant Robertson Quay. Its beating heart is the vast, open-plan lobby, with feature lights inspired by the pulleys and wheels of way-back-when. In the rooms, sleek modern lines contrast with the rugged textures of concrete and original black-iron beams. The glass-walled rooftop infinity pool is the place to cool off, and for dinner head to the mod-Sin restaurant, Po. Its menu was created by chef-pioneer Willin Low, inspired by his granny, of course.

At the hotel

Free WiFi throughout. In rooms: Smart TV, Bang & Olufsen Bluetooth speaker, minibar, air-conditioning, free bottled water, tea- and coffee-making facilities, Ashley & Co bath products.

Our favourite rooms

The River View Suite, for its double-height vaulted ceiling, stand-alone bath tub, and top-floor views across the river. The queen of quirks is the River View Mezzanine – a split-level show-off with an iron staircase and reading library. What the ground-floor Warehouse Sanctuary rooms lack in windows and natural light, they make up for in mood lighting and privacy.


The glass-sided rooftop infinity pool looks over the river and Robertson Quay below. It’s not one for doing lengths in (unless you really enjoy tumble-turns), but it’s ample for a cooling plunge and paddle.

Packing tips

Do *not* forget your swim gear – the pool has glass walls.


All rooms and common areas are wheelchair-accessible. Pets are not allowed.


All ages welcome.


The Ashley & Co bath products are 100 per cent Ecocert-approved, which basically means it’s all good stuff – we’re talking natural and organic ingredients.

Food and Drink

Photos The Warehouse Hotel food and drink

Top Table

Snag one of the banquettes – the one in the corner is cosy.

Dress Code

City slick and in vogue (strike a Po’).

Hotel restaurant

Named ‘Po’, the restaurant is in fact a tale of two Pos. ‘Popo’ is the Chinese word for grandma, and popiah (a chunky, stew-stuffed spring roll) is the kitchen’s speciality dish. The menu was conjured by chef Willin Low, who pioneered the ‘mod-sin’ (modern Singaporean, obvs) food genre at his esteemed Wild Rocket restaurant across the city. The result of all this is a happy blend of granny’s home-spun goodness and inventive nouveau cuisine; be sure to try the umami-laden carabinero prawns and the Cantonese congee, a scallop and clam rice-porridge.

Hotel bar

The bar at Po reflects the warehouse’s past, with craft cocktails inspired by periods in its history. High Tea harks back to the spice trade in the late 19th century, with chamomile whisky and passion fruit shaken up with grenadine, mint and spiced bitters. Or, for a flavour of the 80s disco scene, there’s Lady Luck, a psychedelic shake-up of citrus vodka, roselle gin, coconut and pineapple, served in a fetching doll’s head mug. 

Last orders

Breakfast is served from 7am until 10.30am. The restaurant and bar stay open until midnight Sunday to Thursday, and until 1am on Friday, Saturday and the night before public holidays.

Room service

A menu of all things great and small is available from 11.30am till 10pm every day. Options include barramundi salad and chargrilled Iberico pork satay.

Singapore’s Changi airport ( is a major international hub with direct flights to cities around the world. It’s 21 kilometres from the hotel and takes half an hour to reach in a taxi, which will cost roughly SG$25. Transfers can be arranged by the hotel for SG$100 each way. On request, the Smith24 Team can arrange flights for you (call on 03300 378 398).


It’s about a 15-minute walk to Chinatown, the closest station on the spick ‘n’ span Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) subway. The MRT also runs to the airport in 40 minutes, as well as to Woodlands Checkpoint for trains to Malaysia.


With a public transport system envied the world over, there’s not much need to hire a car – but if you’re mid-roadtrip there is free parking at the hotel.


Boaty McBoats dock at Singapore Cruise Centre, which is 15 minutes by car to the hotel.

Worth getting out of bed for

Resist the temptation to hole-up in your warehouse cocoon: this is the Lion City, not the lie-in city. A jog (or amble) down the river is one way to shake off a Sling-over and explore the city at the same time; it’s around 3km to the Marina Bay esplanade, and you can take in the ‘hoods of Clarke and Boat Quay on the way. Wide-open lawns and totally tropical flora make Fort Canning Park a top pick for a picnic; it’s also the site of the Battlebox – the underground British command centre during World War II, don’t you know. If that gives you a hankering for history, the Asian Civilisations Museum is just along the river, or for something more this-year, hit the shops on Orchard Road.

Local restaurants

Get your claws on some of Singapore’s best-loved crab at Red House; the signature dish is the chilli stew, but you can also take it wok-fried or oozing from a charcoal takesumi bun. A few doors down is Super Loco, for fast-paced and fun-packed Mexican street food at brunch, lunch or dinner.

Local cafés

Common Man Coffee Roasters is the go-to for single-batch brews fresh from the custom-made Synesso espresso machine. All-day brunch is served on the side.

Local bars

Verre is a sophisticated wine bar and bistro, with over 750 tipples to choose from and a Mediterranean menu to match. From grape to grain, La Maison du Whisky has wall-to-wall whiskies from around the globe, and connoisseurs can call ahead to book in for a tasting session.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this luxury hotel in Singapore and unpacked their Peranakan porcelain and please-still-be-sealed tupperware of durian, a full account of their city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside the Warehouse Hotel…
Singapore has a dirty little secret. Long before the streets were buffed to a finish you could eat off and the sparkling towers of glass rose around the marina, it was actually a massive dive. Goods flooded in and out along the Strait of Malacca, and trading companies crammed godowns (warehouses) along the banks of the Singapore River, to store everything from spices and silks, to literally boatloads of opium. One such godown, with neat shuttered windows and a triple-pitched roof, was built by Wee Bin & Co in 1895, on a prime plot in Robertson Quay. On the shadowy backstreets around it, a hotbed of vice developed: gambling, prostitution, illicit booze – hell, I bet they even chewed bubblegum back then. Later, the godown would become a working factory and after that, in the 1980s, one of the city’s favourite discos. Now it has been reborn as the Warehouse Hotel, sleekly styled yet with its heritage preserved. A little reminder that the Lion City still has its roar.

We loved

Staff were absolutely excellent. We arrived in the morning after a long flight from the UK and the lady at the front desk did a great job finding us a room for early check in. Room was as expected, very nice clean and modern and hotel in a good location to access the city.

Don’t expect

A big pool or a great place for doing lots of sunbathing.

We loved the decor - absolutely lovely hotel. Nice comfortable bed, massive shower and in-room facilities. Would recommend for couples for a few romantic nights. There are heaps of fantastic food options nearby and you can easily walk to a number of attraction areas, such as China Town.

Don’t expect

Limited room service, very expensive breakfast, no in-room breakfast options.

Great hotel, terrific service, wonderful staff. Small, unique and different to the other 5-star hotels in Singapore. Great bar and restaurant. The original botanical gardens are amazing. 

Don’t expect

Seeing otters in the river outside the hotel.

The room was very nice and modern and clean. I liked how the room minibar was also stocked with bottled cocktails from the hotel bar. I would also recommend lounging in and by the pool.


Stayed on 7 May 2018

We loved

The lobby entrance, which was spacious, welcoming and nicely designed. The staff, who were very friendly. The lobby bar, good for a quiet drink in the evening or a nice coffee in the morning. The room, nicely decorated. Besides the two domes in Gardens by the Bay, have a stroll in the park around them. There are areas where you hardly see anybody! Try LeVel33 (8, Marina Blvd) as rooftop bar instead of the one on Marina Bay sands hotel.

Don’t expect

A spacious hotel room. It's not very big and you hardly have space to unpack your suitcase. If you plan a longer stay, would might want to ask for a bigger room.

We loved the beautiful and hip restoration of the old warehouse. Absolutely loved the lobby with the reception desk off to one side and not the main focus. The bar area was simple but chic with delicious cocktails, the lounge area comfortable and welcoming with gorgeous furniture. Our loft room was spacious with a window which I had requested. Beautifully fitted out room and bathroom. It is in a great location with the river behind the hotel, great to walk or cycle under a leafy canopy of trees. The hotel's restaurant 'Po' is definitely worth a visit – try the local Singaporean poppias. Robertson Quay boasts plenty of great bars, cafes and restaurants without having to go near the more touristy, tacky looking Clarke Quay.

Don’t expect

Don't expect a close metro station, the nearest one is Clarke Quay. However, it is a pleasant walk by the river to get there.

This boutique hotel was wonderful! Loved my river view loft room, the cocktail menu in the lobby bar, and the shower. The location couldn't be better; stroll along the river for endless drinking and eating choices.

Don’t expect

This hotel is super small, so don't expect a gym or numerous dining options. What they do have has been very carefully curated though!

We loved

This is a beautifully-designed hotel in a perfect spot, with nice rooms and friendly staff. Common Man Coffee, a short walk away on the other side of the river, has great coffee and nice food as well.

Don’t expect

Guests' privacy to win from esthetics and management policy in the restaurant. Staff is obsessed with clearing things from your table the second they think you're finished with them. For a hip place the selection of foods at breakfast is also surprisingly limited.

The hotel was truly an international contemporary hotel, we are expats living in Singapore and it was great to feel like we were out of the country. We were on the river side of the building and it was very quiet, room size was huge. Staff were attentive and the facilities are great. Very short walk to the vast array of Robertson Quay restaurants.

Don’t expect

Don't expect to be dissapointed.

The rooms felt quiet, almost like an escape from the busy streets. The staff were incredibly helpful and supportive when we had a flight cancellation, the food was divine as was the bar, set in a lovely atrium. A most enjoyable stay.

Don’t expect

Gym facilities, however there is a wonderful walkway through various parks – you can walk for ever.

We loved

Our room at The Warehouse hotel was enormous and exceptionally comfortable whilst not overstated or garish. We also loved the great cocktails at the Bar and the general ambience of the hotel – it was so different to all the other business monolith hotels surrounding it. Bitters and Love – one of the coolest Cocktail bars we have ever visited and it serves great bar food too.

We loved

The hotel's fitout is gorgeous. We loved having afternoon cocktails in the bar – the BB King and Lady Luck cocktails were standout. The staff were all wonderful and incredibly helpful. The hotel's restaurant was also exceptional. We loved everything about our stay and will surely return. We also loved Common Man coffee roasters about a 2-minute walk across the quay. The best coffee in Singapore.

Don’t expect

To be in the thick of the hustle and bustle. While the hotel is located centrally, it is within walking distance from other amenities. This was perfect for us as the hotel had everything we wanted and needed.

Impeccable design and incredible attention to detail throughout – definitely not a case of style over substance! So many thoughtful, generous touches that made this stay so enjoyable.

Don’t expect

Any shade at the rooftop pool.

We loved

The lobby design, the classy bar and the location. Go for a saunter along the river to the various quays, where you'll find cafés and restaurants along the river. For breakfast, try Kith Cafe ot the Book Cafe. For lunch or dinner many of the places along the river are great – Sprmkt or the Black Sheep Bar, which are also great for drinks along the river. Other amazing restaurants are a short taxi ride away.

Don’t expect

Late nights at the bar or large rooms.

The overall decor and ambience, which was sophisticated and yet cosy. Bring your jogging gear for a run along the river in the morning or up to Fort Canning Park. We loved the cocktails at Warehouse hotel.
