Wanderlust in Little India draws madcap, curious voyagers to the old ethnic enclave. Made for guests with a sense of adventure, we invite you to walk the unconventional path where a radical hotel experience awaits.Its history began in the 1920s as the Hong Wen School, where the building at No 2 Dickson Road still retains its old-world charm with an unchanged façade. Situated 10 minutes from the cosmopolitan stretches of Orchard Road and the Central Business District; Wanderlust also offers door step access to a bustling, colourful street life. The four storey boutique hotel has 29 rooms. Just as no 2 rooms are identical, the same can be said for each floor in the hotel. It features the groundbreaking works of award-winning Singapore design agencies. Each agency was given full creative freedom to design an entire level in the hotel, resulting in four, different ‘in-your-face’ themes – ‘Industrial Glam’, ‘Eccentricity’, ‘Is It Just Black and White?‘ and ’Creature Comforts.’

I've been meaning to check this hotel out for a while and finally got the chance as my normal (less expensive) hotel had hiked prices for Diwali. Due to changed plans I ended up arriving at 11am, 4 hours before the 3pm check in time. They were happy to keep my bags while I

Super quirky hotel! The staff was nice enough to check us in way early. However, the room I stayed in was not very functional and the bathroom had no counter space. I spent some time upstairs on their deck area to practice yoga as my room was too small. Also the window in our

Dear Shoto, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We're glad you had fun in our Whimisical Spaceroom, enjoyed the convenient location, our room amenities and the service from our housekeeping team. As an associate Marriot/SPG hotel partner, we recognise that Marriot/ SPG member standards may not be in line with ours. Please be assured that we are taking the necessary feedback to rectify the discrepancies with our partners. We seek your kind understanding that as an independent hotel, we have certain limitations. Indeed, our whimsical loft rooms may not be suitable for the elderly, children because of the steep ladder and would recommend our pantone and mono rooms during their stay. We try our best to maintain consistent WIFI strength and would recommend using our Handyphone as a hotspot as an additional alternative. Once again we thank you for your feedback so we can keep improving. Till your next trip to Singapore, keep well and safe travels. Best Regards, Charmaine Wee General Manager

How do you get here from the airport via MRT?
The nearest train station is rochor from here which is our downtown line. Take the train from Changi and cross the platform to change at Tanah Merah. Take the train heading to Jurong and alight at Bugis. There will be a passage linking to the downtown line at Bugis and take the train to Rochor which is one stop away. Take exit B and you will be about 4min walk away to Wanderlust Hotel. There are buses there but I doubt it will be convenient if you are moving luggages around.

They held our luggage for about an hour after our checkout time until we left, so I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem.
