Located in the heart of Kampong Gelam district, multiple rows of traditional low-raised buildings could be seen surrounding Masjid Sultan. Standing amongst these pristine white shophouses, is a distinct blue vernacular architecture with yellow features. Its strong yellow details not only enhanced the building’s heritage structure but it represented Malay royalty. It is unbelievable that hidden in this handsome terraced building, is a hip and modern capsule hotel.
CUBE Hotel @ Kampong Gelam is a luxurious capsule hotel that emphasis on both quality and comfortable lifestyle while travelling. With a minimalist and constructive design, every inch of the hotel is effectively utilised to maximize the guests’ experience. From economical price rates to the marbled tiled toilet and shower room, this lavish capsule hotel combined the best elements of a backpacker’s hotel and the business class standards of a luxury hotel.
Despite its dainty appearance, CUBE at Kampong Gelam is able to hold 56 capsules that not only suit single travellers but couples too. Female travellers are also able to opt for separate females only section for an extra level of comfort.
Taking into consideration of Kampong Glam’s culture, CUBE at Kampong Glam focused their signature beverages on mocktails instead of cocktails. Whereas, their other outlet in the Chinatown area shined their spotlight on the cocktails. Needless to say, the food provided in both of these restaurants comes in both halal and non-halal variants. Additionally, guests staying at CUBE at Kampong Glam are able to enjoy free daily breakfast and scrumptious food from Gloria Jean’s Coffee, and Yasu Japanese Grill, without leaving the hotel.
In collaboration with Singapore Tourism Board, on-site Singapore Visitor Centre operates round the clock in CUBE at Kampong Glam. There, visitors can buy discounted attraction tickets, release their burning questions about Singapore or even book an Instagram Bike Tour. However, who needs to get on an Instagram Bike Tour when there are music, culture and historical stories right outside their doorstep. Do join us on 18 July and be immersed in the lively atmosphere where musicians from SultanGate brings you back to the past with nostalgic covers and original songs.
