They got us at outdoor bathtubs and mala ramen

First there was KeSa House, and now, Singapore’s most happening neighborhood is home to another (much-welcome) boutique hotel.

Step through blue panel doors to find Hotel Soloha, a 45-room property along Teck Lim Road that’s taking over the grounds of three shophouse spaces. Found just off the main Keong Saik stretch (and really close to Burnt Ends), this boutique concept stands out with its vivid colours, bold designs and proximity to many of Singapore’s top restaurants and bars.

Inside, find fun things like a reception that doubles up as a bar, meeting rooms equipped with ping pong tables, and the already-opened Takeshi Noodle Bar, offering highly slurpable bowlfuls of comfort, including a very tempting seafood mala ramen.

Rooms range from standard windowless rooms and family suites, to loft skylight rooms and even suites with outdoor tubs.

Social spaces add to the hospitality of the place, while rooms remain cosy and comfortable, and equipped with quality amenities like artisanal products and doors that are actually soundproof enough that you won’t be disturbed by your neighbour’s midnight Netflix binge.

Adding to the character of the hotel are tropical and forest-inspired artwork by local artists Ethrisha Liaw and Danielle Tay, giving the place that dash of modern vibrancy expected from an establishment found within Singapore’s coolest ‘hood.

Hotel Soloha is located at 12 Teck Lim Rd.
