Located in the heart of Kampong Gelam district, multiple rows of traditional low-raised buildings can 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 enhances the building’s heritage structure but also represents 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 emphasises both quality and comfort while travelling. With a minimalist and constructive design, every inch of the hotel is effectively utilised to better the guests’ experience. From economical price rates to the marbled tiled toilet and shower room, this lavish capsule hotel combines the best elements of a backpacker’s hotel and the standards of a luxury hotel.
Despite its dainty appearance, CUBE at Kampong Gelam is able to hold 56 capsules that suit both single travellers and couples. Female travellers are also able to opt for a separate females only section for an extra level of comfort.
Considering Kampong Glam’s culture, CUBE at Kampong Glam focuses their signature beverages on mocktails instead of cocktails, whereas their other outlet in the Chinatown area shined the spotlight on 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 the Singapore Tourism Board, an on-site Singapore Visitor Centre operates round the clock in CUBE at Kampong Glam. There, visitors can buy discounted attraction tickets, have their burning questions about Singapore answered or even book an Instagram Bike Tour. However, who needs to get on an Instagram Bike Tour when there is music, culture and history 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.
